Scones Forever

Because breakfast wins best meal award*. (*Based on the dessert-as-a-meal-thing, obvz.) Because my countertops are covered with dishes and my bed is covered with laundry. Because my car seats are covered in sesame seeds from emergency bagel-ing on the regular. Because I’m good at running out of milk, cereal, bread for toasting, and general breakfast foods. Because I took a 2-hour nap Saturday and then ran out of daylight. Because my favorite cowboy boots are…

Pesto Chicken Wrap

This guy would win in a sandwich battle wrap, that’s for sure. Imagine this rainbow dinner on stage rhyming with Eminem or whoever, ya know? It’d be like, “Yo, I know I’m a sandwich, but don’t disrespect. I’m a dinner worth eating so let’s be direct. I’ve got mad flava’ so get ready to sava’*. I’m no average meal, don’t save me for lata.” And then the other fella or lady would probably just go…

Feta, Sun-dried Tomato & Spinach Scones

On the way home from the grocery store, while snacking on tortilla chips I just bought, I thought about how it’d be cool if salsa-filled tortilla chips was a thing. When I got home one of my grocery bag handles broke off. Then I proceeded to fall up the stairs tripping over my own feet. Just your average Sunday grocery shopping situation, right? These scones, on the other hand, are not average. They are also…

Spinach & Cheese Mini Muffins {revisited}

Sometimes you have to put a bright blanket on your couch because your couch is wearing out. Sometimes you have to clean your feelings. Sometimes you have to buy cereal every time you’re at the store even though you have some already. Sometimes you have to fall asleep on the blanket on the couch watching Bored to Death and then stumble-walk to bed at 1am. Sometimes you have to drink vodka sodas and make pulled…

Spinach, Artichoke, and Feta Stuffed Shells {revisited}

Lately, I’ve been hibernating. I’ve been staying in and drinking black coffee. I’ve been falling asleep on the couch watching true crime shows. I’ve been waking up with my shoulders all out of wack. I’ve been wearing leggings as pants, and flats in the snow. I’ve also been wanting pasta. So, I figured if I’m going to pasta it up, I may as well do it all healthy-like, right? Sure. More veggies than cheese? Yes!…

Spaghetti Squash + Stuffed Mushrooms {faux spaghetti and meatballs}

Faux noodles; faux problems. I really admire spaghetti squash for being a vegetable in a noodle outfit. I’m just really impressed by it! How does it do it? I’d say it’s a veggie-miracle. Make it. You’ll see. These stuffed mushrooms are the meatball in this pasta situation. They’re prettier than meatballs right? In a beauty pageant, these would look way better in a bathing suit. Am I wrong? But mostly, these mushrooms are full of…

Focaccia Cake + Spinach Dip

Sometimes I have the worst ideas. For example, every time I smell pizza, and love it, I have the fleeting thought: “I wish I had a pizza-scented candle.” I think we all know that’d be gross, and it’d result in constant stomach rumbling. Double trouble. However finagling foccacia bread into a layer-cake that can be lunch, is not a bad idea. Not that I have any problem with┬ácake for lunch. So let’s eat cake that’s…

Mushroom & Spinach Frittata

This is my weekend lunch. It’s what I made while Elliot was laying in a sunny patch on the floor and I was in between episodes of True Blood. It’s extra lunch-y with a salad on the side. I’m a big fan of putting black beans in my salads, do you guys do that? You probably should. Oh, and spinach and mushrooms are best friends. It’s just the truth. So let’s have lunch. I’ll bring…

Pizza Dough {made by Jake}

First of all, can you believe how casual I was about this pizza dough in the Spinach Dip Bites post? I mean… who do I think I am? So here it is in it’s own post along with a big dose of respect. (Oh! Slicing your own peps is where it’s at. Ask anybody! Ask Jake!) Just know that this is our favorite, straight-up, no-nonsense pizza dough. Jake generally makes it because he’s a G…
