A Thailand Favorite

In February Josh and I traveled to Thailand. I have to admit; I was a little hesitant when Josh suggested the trip. It was something about the unknown of Southeast Asia that deterred me initially. However, I am so thankful that I didn’t let that prevent us from going. Not only is Thailand beautiful and…

Sugar Skull Tequila

Not too long ago I drank the last bit of Patron Silver I had and rid my house forever of big house tequila. However, there’s always tequila in my house, so I bought a bottle of really delicious anejo tequila made by a company called Kah. The tequila is delicious and normally I wouldn’t cook…

Quacktastic

Anytime I get the chance to do the grocery shopping alone, I usually put a dent in the bank account. Josh and I are kind of opposites like that. He goes alone and we barely have enough food to get us through dinner. I go and we’re racking up points on the credit card! What…

An Easy One For Annie

This week my friend Annie mentioned that she was going to cook dinner for her boyfriend and was asking for dinner ideas. I was like, “Hellooooo, I write a food blog!” She then pointed out that some of my stuff is too complicated and I totally agree. Sometimes I underestimate just how complicated some of…

Easiest Chicken Nugget

About 3 months ago, I casually Instagramed some chicken nuggets that I made for dinner. Really didn’t think much of it actually. I’ve done this several times, you know, health up a chicken nugget. But to be honest, I neither grew up on nuggets, nor really cared much about them. Any instance I can remember…

If you live in Somerville, you’ve likely been stuck in the traffic on Somerville Ave. created by people going into their ridiculously large…

Another Crappy Stir Fry…Kidding! Kiiiiiidding!

I cook stir fry every once in a blue moon. The reason? Because it’s quick and simple. Well, I say simple, but I don’t actually mean it. Yes, sautéing vegetables and protein is easy. However, the truth is, I think it’s extraordinarily difficult to get the sauce right. Especially if you’re not drowning it in…

Jingle Bell Brunch

Right after they postponed the Jingle Bell Run in Somerville, my work/running posse and I decided that if we couldn’t run then drink together, we’d just pot luck brunch and drink together. Easy solution to what was a total bummer in addition to the mound of wet heavy snow we received that pushed the race…

Getting Wingy Wit It

When I was poor and in college, my friend Jason and I used to go out for half price tall boy beers and half price buffalo wings liiiike every week. We could pretty much get bombed and full for 10 bucks a piece! It was pretty glorious especially in hind sight living in a state…
