Are you guys done with your holiday baking? I was really good. I baked a few days ago. I made blondies, cookies, and truffles to hand out to Mike’s coworkers and our neighbors. However, since I made them, I have also consumed like 50% of the finished products. Oops! [Read more…]
Today, let’s talk about something that is near and dear to everybody’s hearts; late night food. Or, drunk food, if you wanna call it that too. I know that for me, I don’t need to be drunk to be craving or even needing some late night snacks. Lately if I stay up past ten watching a movie, I will be in need of a snack to help keep me awake for the rest of the movie. Yep, mom, I am turning into you!
Some people like some late night Mexican food. I can’t do spicy before I hit the hay. Mike is all about late night tacos. There is a certain taco joint around here that stays open 24 hours a day that caters to the late night munchie crowd. You better believe that Mike and all his buddies hit that place up on the reg during the summer. I remember him taking me there when I first came to see his hometown in college too. Sigh, so romantic. [Read more…]
Isn’t it funny how your goals and aspirations change through the years? Sometimes I like to compare my little kid hopes and dreams to my grown up Debbie Downer hopes and dreams. It is quite the examination of contradictions.
I don’t know why I am oversharing this little tidbit into my little kid psyche, but here we go. When I was little I used to sing all the time. I used to write songs on little notepads and sing them to my mom. A capella. Now, on one hand, yes that is super cute. On the other hand, I now know I do not have a great singing voice. I never have, never will. And don’t be all like, “Oh no Stef, I’m sure that’s not true.” Just to try and humor me. Trust me, I am fine with it. I still sing regardless, so don’t worry. [Read more…]
I usually brainstorm my written post ideas a night or two in advance. Since today’s recipe is bread, I thought that I would try to list my top ten favorite types of bread. Yeah… That was an easier said than done kind of thing.
You see, along with wine and cheese, bread is another thing I cannot live without. My mom may not agree with my views on cheese, but she gets the bread thing. We would eat at Panera once a week when I was home from college just for the side of baguette. So great! [Read more…]
I friggen love rye bread. I grew up on rye bread. It is a carb that is very near and dear to my heart. When I was little, I remember going to my Dziadzia’s (pronounced jah-jah, Polish for grandpa) house and eating giant soft slices of rye bread that he would have sitting out on a paper towel along with some kielbasa (pronounced keel-basa, aka a type of Polish sausage) on his kitchen table for a snack.
I’m Polish. That’s our definition of a snack. [Read more…]
