Someday, if you’re lucky and I feel like sacrificing our dignity, I will show you a picture of our lovely oven. Chris originally thought we should name this blog “The Timeless Kitchen” because the oven has no clock. That’s right, read ‘em and weep, literally. At some point the LYK oven’s clock shorted and started beeping uncontrollably, as our smoke alarm also tends to do. Naturally, the previous tenants thought it best to simply rip out the clock. We now have a gaping black hole of death with cut wires popping out of …Read More
So we went out last night. By out I mean, happy hour and then splitting a half-off ($12!) bottle of wine with Pearl during dinner at Gringo’s. The three of us were the last to leave and definitely closed the place up, no big deal. It was exhilarating-ly fun but I’m exhausted. Exhausted to the point that it’s difficult to reach over 2 inches and lift my coffee mug to my lips. Pathetic, I know. I sound like a 90 year old woman. But seriously, good thing this going out on weekdays thing is not a nightly …Read More
Everyone, this past weekend the culinary goddess blessed me with a child. A stork left a gift on my doorstep. Behold, my new child, the (nameless) Ice blue kitchen-aid mixer. Isn’t he a beauty? Since purchasing a kitchen-aid mixer is really a once-in-a-lifetime thing, he will need a good name, so here is where I need some help–send me some ideas! What is the best name for my new mixer?
Now, for the tough part. As if naming my child wasn’t hard enough, what in the world do I teach him to do first? Growing up, I loved baking oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. I could pretty much make them with eyes closed, so I thought that recipe would be the first thing that I make. Well, this recipe from +/0+/ spoke to me. Call it an epiphany, call it what you want. I suddenly realized that the first thing my baby mixer needed to learn, was the mashed bananers & nutella muffin recipe. Duh, he’s just a child, so mashed bananers are the way to go.
These are quite possibly the best muffins ever. I’m being serial. With some slight alterations and additions, these muffins are full of nutrients and fiber that your body can’t resist. Yes, healthy muffins ARE a real thing…you probably just haven’t realized it yet, if you have been hitting up your local Starbucks, purchasing whatever muffin has the word “reduced fat” slapped in the …Read More

While recovering from having my wisdom teeth yanked on Friday, my mom graciously took me in for the weekend. While she was kind enough to make me smoothies, soups and homemade applesauce, she also tortured me by feeding Chris and my family ribs for dinner…RIBS! Are you kiddin’ me?! As I sat there looking plump as a chipmunk daintily sipping on my lemon orzo soup, everyone else ate like disgusting carnivores. Hmph. So maybe I was a little bitter…I really wish I could chow down on some potato chips and a …Read More
