Brunch With The Family: So Much Better Than Bars

I love weekends, but not for the same reasons I did when I was single. Back in those days, weekends meant partying at bars, hooking up, and generally risking getting myself in a lot of trouble. Now that I'm married and settled down into a responsible lifestyle, my favorite thing to do on weekends is… Continue reading Brunch With The Family: So Much Better Than Bars

This Isn’t Your Mom’s Meatloaf

Meatloaf has a reputation in the food world of being not quite as prestigious as other forms of meat, and I'm not exactly sure why. Maybe the singer Meatloaf ruined it for the food? There's no musical artist (and I'm using that term loosely) called Meatball, and everyone loves spaghetti and meatballs, which are nearly… Continue reading This Isn’t Your Mom’s Meatloaf

Playing With Dogs: It’s All Fun And Games Until Someone Gets A Black Eye

Last night, I was sitting on my couch playing with my dogs just like any other night. Even though Miles is 70 lbs and almost as tall as I am (that doesn't take much), he's young and he still thinks he's a little puppy, and he likes to stretch out in my lap while I… Continue reading Playing With Dogs: It’s All Fun And Games Until Someone Gets A Black Eye

HGTV Does NOT Accurately Depict The Stress Of First-Time Homebuyers

I haven't had as much time to blog lately because I'm up to my eyeballs in work projects and my husband and I are simultaneously navigating the torrential first-time home buyer process. It's exciting for sure, but it feels like I have at least two full time jobs and we're going to have to literally… Continue reading HGTV Does NOT Accurately Depict The Stress Of First-Time Homebuyers

Crab-Stuffed Tilapia With Caribbean Rice And Steamed Broccoli

My husband is possibly the biggest carnivore I know, so I was surprised one day a couple years ago when he randomly asked me to make seafood for dinner. I thought "Is he trying to eat healthier? I can certainly get behind that!" Well, the answer is no; it turned out that the request for… Continue reading Crab-Stuffed Tilapia With Caribbean Rice And Steamed Broccoli
