A Salad a Day

I don’t like salads. Unless they are smothered in ranch dressing, cheese, and bacon bits. Yes, I am a stereotypical American. Feel free to judge. I deserve it.

That being said, I am trying to develop a taste for salads. They are the ideal meal. Healthy, easy, cheap, and transportable. What more could you want from a food? (more…)

Sweet Potato Egg Boats

Farmers’ markets are beautiful and dangerous places. I love all the fresh, local, seasonal produce and am frequently overcome with an urge to buy everything I see. That’s how I ended up with a bag full of sweet potatoes. They weren’t on the list and I had no real plan of what I’d do with them, but I just couldn’t resist.

When this happens (which it always does), I turn to Pinterest and Food Gawker for ideas. These sites have saved many innocent vegetables from certain decay in depths of my refrigerator. (more…)

Saturday = Pancakes

Breakfast is, without a doubt, the best meal of the day.

(Somewhere in Delaware, my mother is rolling her eyes and remembering how she practically had to force-feed me breakfast when I was in middle school. I hated it! For years the only thing I would eat for breakfast was tuna fish sandwiches.)

Recipe Review: Creamy Avocado Pasta

Pasta is one of my favorite meals. It’s fast, easy, cheap and almost always a crowd pleaser. Who doesn’t love spaghetti?

That being said, it can get also get boring pretty quickly. Especially when you eliminate all sauces containing sugars/preservatives/etc. I’ve been switching between a clean marinara and a clean vodka sauce, but the whole tomato-based sauce routine gets old. There’s always the olive oil and sauteed veggies option, but chopping a bunch of fresh vegetables isn’t exactly fast or easy. What I really wanted something creamy, but knew I would never find a clean version in the store and making my own from scratch, like chopping veggies, completely defeats the “fast, easy, and cheap” aspect.

Today is my birthday.

I’ve never been big on birthdays. To be perfectly honest, I don’t really understand the point. My mother did all the work. I didn’t choose to be born. In fact, I had no say in the matter. The whole thing was completely out of my control. Why should I get presents? But here I am. (more…)

It’s time for another…

…name that product!

For the last one, the only person to get the answer right was my mother and the whole thing was fishy, to say the least. She texted me the answer rather than leaving her guess as a comment on Facebook or here on the blog. And she texted me the minute after I posted the answer.

She claims she hadn’t seen the answer post when she sent the text.
