Are you guys still recovering from Super Bowl? Nah, just me? I definitely made way too much food for just us two adults and one kiddo. Then may or may not have got a little crazy and ordered $40 worth of bacon cheeseburger pizzas after Andy went to bed. Don’t worry mom, only a moderate amount of alcohol was involved. It was a Sunday after all! [Read more…]
Hey. How’s the weather? Don’t let the fact that I led off with this question make you think we, as friends, have nothing to talk about because I swear I have a point. Well, maybe not so much a point as a roundabout way of basically telling you that you should make this recipe. But, that is why you come here right?
Most of the US is in the middle of either some kind of rain or snow situation right now. We here in Chicago are in the middle of both. Not like it is snowing and raining simultaneously, but like the weather is deciding what it wants to do, rain or snow. It seems to have decided to just be and look miserable. Even Mother Nature has a case of the winter blues and can’t do her job properly. [Read more…]
Oh, before I forget! I am running a little giveaway over on Instagram just for fun. It ends tonight at midnight so go follow this link and enter to win!
Ok, so recently, I shared a quick recipe over on Snapchat for this chicken. The recipe got a lot of screenshots. If this is gibberish to you, I apologize. Snapchat is still a fun and mysterious app to me sometimes. Anyway, it seemed people wanted this easy recipe so I decided to bring it to the blog for those of you folks who aren’t all up on the latest social media. No judgments.
I am sure you fill your time with educational readings or actual human interaction instead of filling your moments with constant, mindless scrolling and tapping like I do. [Read more…]
Mike loves spicy food. I am pretty sure it is general knowledge to all you folk how he loves buffalo sauce and all kinds of sauced up chicken wings. I feel like I mention that fact quite regularly. Mike likes to think he can handle most spicy things but, as he ages, his tolerance for heat is getting less and less (even though he won’t admit this to himself).
It all started to go downhill when we were on our honeymoon in Mexico and I was chomping away on a ceviche with little bright orange peppers in it. Yeah, it was spicy. I kind of expected that. I hadn’t given it a second thought. I told Mike that I was pretty sure they were habanero peppers. He trying to be all macho, took one little bitty piece of diced pepper, placed it on his tongue, then chomped into it. His whole face lit up like a stop light and he started to profusely sweat. He tried to play it off when the waitress came over but could not hide the tears streaming down his face. She started to make fun of Mike, patronizing him and saying “Llorando? El Bebe llorando?!” (The baby is crying). Then to make up for it, she offered us a jillion tequila shots, but that is a story for a different time. [Read more…]
The other day while mindlessly cruising the interwebs and social media, I came across a post somebody had liked and found it rung very true for me and my family in regards to holiday shopping. The person posted that they were pretty sure there would be no Christmas and no Christmas presents without Amazon Prime. I could not agree more. I am sure that many of you can relate to that post as well. [Read more…]
