Happy Monday, everybody! I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. I had both a busy and relaxing holiday, with time for both cooking/hiking as well as reading a book while having the house to myself. Friday, I went on a hike to Robert H. Treman State Park. It was a little […]
It’s finally hot here in Western New York and much of this weekend was spent out in the sun! Friday I went to my mom and stepdad’s house on Sodus Point and hung out on the dock for most of the day. It’s honestly one of my favorite places to be. Something about being on […]
So, last week was a bit of an all over flop with all of the recipes I had planned to share, so I’m just going to give you two things that I ended up making/eating with a list of ingredients or simple instructions. Originally I wanted to do a naan bread pizza, but the store […]
This recipe is also great when made with pecans or almonds! Ingredients 1 cup chopped walnuts 1/4 cup white granulated sugar 1 Tbsp butter (can be salted or unsalted) 1/2 tsp cinnamon Large piece of parchment paper Instructions Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Using a rubber spatula, I like to add the butter […]
Apparently the theme this week is all things poppy seed! I decided to make a little quarantine version of an arugula and pear salad with a homemade poppy seed dressing. This is going to use canned pears instead of fresh, since they are out of season currently and many of us are also stuck at […]
What better recipe for the blog’s first lemon post than a delicious lemon loaf! While this recipe calls for greek yogurt, you can also substitute with equal parts sour cream or plain greek yogurt. You just won’t get as much of the vanilla flavor/sweetness. And if poppy seeds aren’t your thing, just leave those out! […]
This tuna salad recipe is celery free, as I prefer to add pickles instead, but you can always swap the pickles out or add both! I also get really bad heartburn/indigestion from red onion, so I sub with sweet onion instead. Ingredients 2.5oz solid white albacore tuna (I use the Bumble Bee packets) 2 tbsp […]
Makeup is something I recently decided to get into, but I’ve always been really hesitant to buy more expensive products/skeeved out by trying testers in stores. Since we also currently can’t go to the store to see products firsthand I decided this was a great time to give Ipsy a try! Just a quick overview, […]
What else does one do when they’re stuck inside and have a giant thing of cornmeal? Experiment with cornbread recipes! I made the recipe listed on the cornmeal package earlier in the week and they turned out a bit too dry and not as sweet as I like. I typically look for that Boston Market […]
Ingredients Salad 2 cups chopped romaine 3oz honey mustard chicken breast 1 hard boiled egg, diced ½ an avocado, diced ¼ cup crumbled bacon 2 tbsp honey mustard dressing of your choice, I prefer Kraft or I use the marinade recipe Honey Mustard Marinade (makes enough for 2 large chicken breasts) 1 tbsp honey 1 […]
