by Lauren

If I’m being honest, things got less than wild in the kitchen this weekend. This salad was a result of starvation turned healthy and delicious snack.

It’s so, so simple. Perhaps one of the simplest things I’ve ever made for you. Well, technically I made it for me, but I would have shared if you were here.

Well that looks like a lonely slider. It once had seven other siblings, but we gobbled them up pretty darn quick.

One of my bestest friends and (oh my gosh we’ve been pals for 10 years) bridesmaids, Carolina, makes some awesome food. We’re old.

She is constantly telling me about the amazing things she creates for her friends and I dream of being there eating these things every.single.time.

Chris has had frozen ribs in his freezer for approximately one month now. Every weekend he asks me to make them, and every weekend we end up being so busy that we forget.

After driving 30 minutes inland to go hiking only to discover that the trail was closed for the day, we had to come up with a new plan. The only logical solution when you are prevented from taking part in weekend exercise is to eat – we … Read more...
