You know the great thing about Buffalo Chicken season? Oh yeah. It has its own season. It starts the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl. Well, once that game is over and you think you’ll never want to chug a gallon of Buffalo sauce again, March Madness starts. Welcome back all things dippable and fried, and coated in buffalo sauce. If you don’t want to go the route of fried wings, then this healthy and light buffalo chicken salad is for you. [Read more…]
Did I ever tell you how I used to walk, rain or shine, over a mile almost every single day to eat nachos in college? My friends are laughing after reading this question, because they know it is true. And, yes, you bet your booty that I Google Map’d the distance from my dorm to my Holy Grail nacho sanctum, Pepe’s. It is, in fact, anywhere from 1.1 to 1.6 miles depending on which streets you take.

It’s about that time in the post pregnancy phase of life in which I come to realize that all the benefits that come from carrying a baby, i.e. beautiful thick hair, clear skin (and for me, weight loss), have sadly come to an end. The move into the new house kept me preoccupied for a while. But we have many mirrors in this house so I can no longer avoid my own reflection. Big old chin zit. Great. Oh boy, is that the start of a bald spot or receding hairline on the right side of my head? I am 100% sure I am not carrying a baby currently, but that looks like the start of a food baby/beer belly. Ugh!
