Taco Kitchen

Tonight, we went to the Taco Kitchen. That is, our kitchen. We made tacos. In the crockpot. It was so easy. I put them in this morning, turned on the timer for 6 hours, and went to work while they cooked. Can’t get any better than that. I need to find more crockpot recipes because…

(Baked) Fried Green Happiness

Today has been a sad day, given all that happened in Orlando last night. I just don’t understand all the hate in this world. But I was reminded of how amazing and loving the people I’ve chosen to surround myself with are every time I looked at Facebook today, which, to be honest, was as little…

When in Roma, Add Tomatoes

I wish I was in Roma, as this title suggests, but alas, I am in my kitchen and it’s finally dinner time. It’s really late I know, but we’ve been working around the house all day. Zeus worked on the deck. I cleaned the house, brushed Yoda for about 30 minutes and almost made another animal, and…

June’s First Farm Bag, plus a Pegasus

It’s farm bag day! And I am in love with what’s inside this giant bag… What came in the bag: Blackberries Seedless Watermelons Yum Yum Peppers Garden Gem Tomatoes Roma Beans Fairy Tale Eggplant Organic Cucumbers The French Pantry’s Ciabatta I have so many recipe ideas floating around in my head for this bag. I’ve never tried…

Farm Bag Day & Mini Classic Cheesecakes

Thursday was farm bag day, I made some of my delicious cheesecakes, and I’ve been busy ever since, so today is the first time I’ve had a chance to blog about it. I was especially excited about this week’s farm bag, because it had quite a few of my favorite things: Cucumbers Peaches Patty pan squash Organic…

May (#2) – I Had a Craving for Something Gouda

On my way home today, I had a craving for gouda cheese. There was a lot of talk about cheese at work today (nothing new really – classic Viz); the first three things on the signup sheet for next week’s cookout are mac and cheese, cheesecake, and cheese. But I needed dinner, so I figured combining…

May – A New Crockpot, a New Meal

Zeus bought me a new crockpot for my birthday, and it took me 2 months to finally use it. Now here we are, stuffed after a delicious meal that required virtually no effort. Well, the chicken anyway. The veggies took some time, but I don’t mind it. Our #Robertsmealofthemonth for May was Beer Crockpot Chicken….

April – Can’t Get Enough Stroganoff

So March was busy, and then it was gone, without us making anything new. But because I made two things in February, we’re still on track. Zeus has been telling me for months that we should make stroganoff. We added it to the list, but never made it. After finally making it, I ask myself…

February – Two New Meals in One

Hello February, you wonderful, cold month of love! We celebrated Valentine’s Day by staying in and cooking a new meal, because really, who wants to be out in those crowds of awkward, I-have-to-take-her-out-or-she’ll-kill-me couples? To be honest, we weren’t really being crafty by not going out on actual Valentine’s Day; Zeus worked all day and it…

January – The Month of Cabbage

At the beginning of this year, Zeus and I signed up for Local Fare*, a fruit and veggie delivery service that sources all of its produce from local farmers. Every bag is filled with a variety of fruits and vegetables, plus some fresh baked bread from the French Pantry (my favorite place ever). The bag…

A New Beginning

I started this blog well over 2 years ago and here is my first post. My original idea was to talk about/make fun of all the stupid things that I came across while working as a copywriter for a large web design/marketing company (think of the most basic internet name for a website and you’ve…
