Blog Love: Thai Crunch Chicken Salad

June 20, 2012

I don’t know why but I’ve always been a little bit terrified of making Asian food.  Something about the spices and the soy and the fact that I still can’t figure out how to cook rice to perfection in this darn altitude.  Can I just say that rice packaging companies should have high altitude instructions […]

Here’s something I never ever got before: sliders.  Well, I say that I never GOT them, but the truth is that I totally love them.  Clear as mud, right?   That’s what I thought.  I’m so good with words… Here’s what I’m trying to say:  I love me some sliders.  They totally go with the […]

June 18, 2012

This weekend was WILD y’all. That’s right, totally wild.  I did crazy things like GO TO PARTIES and STAYED UP WAY PAST MY BEDTIME and CAME THISCLOSE TO DRINKING A VODKA TONIC. This all makes me sound sort of lame, right? Well let’s just put it all in perspective real quick:  we went to a […]

June 17, 2012

Happy Father’s Day to the awesome daddy who: taught me how to make “dead bugs and worms” (spaghetti with olives and mushrooms); put me in the garbage can at the ripe old age of one; made me write book reports in the summer to keep me sharp; instilled a love of Christ in my heart; […]

Brown Sugar Cookies with Sea Salted Caramel and Dark Chocolate

June 14, 2012

Sigh.  There are times that I wish I could just do things over again. Like the fact that I should have embraced my curly hair looooooooooong before I actually did.  All of those bad yearbook photos and my poor, poor curling iron – it never expected to be used as a straightener.   I also […]

Blog Love: Chocolate Cayenne Protein Snack Bites

June 13, 2012

Let’s just start this post off with the obvious confession:  these photos are not of chocolate bites.  I’m sorry I’m not sorry though – they are phenomenal and it’s probably a good thing that I didn’t actually make the original recipe.  If I had I have a feeling that I would have run out to […]

The Land of Tea & Honey

June 13, 2012

Alright everyone, raise your hand if you loooooooooooooove tea?  Because this Texas girl’s got two hands reaching for the sky right about now!   I don’t know about y’all, but iced tea in the summer is pretty much the next best thing to water, only probably better because, well, it tastes like iced tea.  I […]
