burned rolls – like a rock

January 10, 2013 | Food | Permalink

There is something awesome about cooking.  Dreaming up what you are making.  Healthyiyizing it.  Finding the perfect recipe & then making it and feeling all domestic life when the Bster get’s home.  That was me tonight.  Whipping up some, aheem, spagetti (it was organic at least!) and then making whole wheat rolls from scratch.  By [...]

restaurant review – market street

December 16, 2012 | Food, Restaurant Reviews | Permalink

Market Street is known for really great seafood and steaks.  Their shrimp cocktail is to die for.  B and I are totally shrimp lovers, and market street has to be one of our favorite places for a good shrimp cocktail.  Market Street can be a little pricy due to the quality of the food, so being at a work [...]

restaurant review – vitos

You guys.  This was so good.  Growing up we’d spend summers in Pennsylvania visiting my amazing grandparents who we adoringly called Nanny and Pop-Pop.  Everything about visiting them was magical.  PA is so different than UT, in countless ways; the green trees, woods everywhere, the old historic homes, big cities, the rivers, the diversity, incredible parks, museums, townships, the [...]

restaurant review – red iguana

December 11, 2012 | Food, Restaurant Reviews | Permalink

Any place that has the line “killer mexican food” is my kind of place.  If you are looking for authentic mexican food and experience, this is your placet.  It’s not fancy.  It’s straightforward, eclectic and loved by anyone who stops by.  You will die when you eat anything off the menu.  It’s not greasy and heavy like [...]

restaurant review – maxwells

We dined at Maxwells on Saturday night with friends.  We started a monthly dinner group with some great friends and this was our inaugural dinner group event, so I wanted to go somewhere safe that I knew would be cool and tasty.  It was  both cool and also tasty.  They have this Buffalo chicken pizza that you would die for.

new fav chocolate chip cookies

December 9, 2012 | Food | Permalink

I have followed this blog and love her taste in music and monthly playlists and while listening I came across a delish recipe!  I love these chocolate chip cookies, they are the perfect mix of sweet and salty, but not too sweet or too salty.  They are just what a cookie should be soft and gooey on the inside, [...]

  Today was a really good day.  B got some good news in the job department and is also is one day away from finishing up college classes… forever.  This is seriously great news and a great day!   I’m sure you were totally thinking what a perfect opp to celebrate with twice baked potatoes. [...]

Planning to try these cookies out soon.  Just saw them on a blog i’ll need to start following now that  i’m all into this blog-o-sphere.  At least that what B tells me because I keep ignoring him for the 1 person that currently looks at my blog.  Like right now I just finished some late night working when it’s [...]

vegeterian curry in a hurry

December 3, 2012 | Food, Recipes | Permalink

Got home from work late and forgot that I didn’t have many things for dinner.  I made curry and tried to make do with what I had.  Since I was home late, I tried to cook it faster so I boiled the potatoes and carrots, which made the potatoes dry and not as flavorful as i’ve had before.  In [...]

1st anniversary trip

It’s hard to believe that we have been married for a year.  It seems like we just got married and also that we’ve always been married.  It’s amazing to think about how much more I love B now, than I did when we got married, and I loved him then!  Love is the most amazing [...]
