Winter Comfort Soup

It’s finally getting chilly here in Florida! It’s snowing everywhere north of here, but it’s chilly here in Florida! I miss the snow, so we’ve been planning on where to go to see the snow soon. Even though it’s not snowing, and some people will roll their eyes at us if I comment on how […]

It’s been some time since I’ve typed into this space. I feel like I have good reasons. If you don’t follow me on social media, then I’ll say it here: we’re expecting a human. So far growing a human hasn’t taken too much of a toll on me, and most days I doubt I’m even […]

Rose Pistachio Macarons

I used to be obsessed with eating macarons, and when I first saw a video on how to make them, I was super intrigued. I started reading more about how to make them and found so. many. websites. A lot of websites were dedicated to trouble shooting, and I quickly realized these things must be […]

Beef and Broccoli with Garlic Sauce

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe we all have a special place in our hearts for Chinese take out. There’s just something about the flavors, the packaging; how no matter where you go, the stock images above the register look the same and how it’ll always be ready in just 15 minutes. The […]

What is it about bookstores that make them so comfortable to take a poo in? Real lady like, I know. While we made our trek inside a bookstore in our city, I decided to take a gander through the cookbooks. I had been wanting a new one, and I wanted one that I’d actually use. […]

Monday Mess | 3

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

It’s hard to be vulnerable every week like I wanted. Some weeks I haven’t really processed my life to figure out what exactly it is that is making a mess, I just know some days I just feel a mess. Not every day, just some, and it’s more of a slump. I always knew I […]

Today is a true honest post on here because I’m going to have my gentleband share a recipe. Why is it a true honest post? Well, because he is more of the cook in our household. I work in the food industry, and sometimes, actually often times, I come home and just need to lay […]

Cold Brew

Oh my Lordy, isn’t it hot out? Heat and I don’t always mix well together. My poor gentleband has to feel my impatience when I’m hot and living in Florida; it happens quite often. Every summer, I ask him why we still live here. I love where we live, I just can’t get over why […]

Monday Mess | 2

growup

Last week, I shared the purpose of these installments on my food journal, and I shared my first mess. I don’t want to just share a physical mess, I want to share mess ups. This week I’m sharing a thought I’ve been having and it’s not just something I do, it’s something we all do. […]

Summer time means peach season is upon us. I grabbed a small paper bag and filled it with peaches while in the produce section of one of my favorite markets. I smelled the bag and was thinking how lovely the smell of peaches is. I think that anything peach scented does an injustice to this […]
