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. … Read more...

Creepy Crawly April Fools Day Treat

by Lauren

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.

Buffalo Chicken Fingers

by Lauren

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 … Read more...
