Grilled Caesar Insalata

Thanks to my small friend Lena, Max and I decided to grill Caesar salads on Sunday for dinner. I threw together a homemade Caesar dressing and Max manned the grill. We had some good Alaskan salmon fillets, so we grilled those up too! Max preferred plain romaine to grilled romaine, but I love the slightly … Continue reading

Beer vs. Wine vs. Cheese, please.

Beer vs. Wine vs. Cheese, please.

I love me some cheese. I love cheese even more when you throw wine/beer into the mix. And that’s exactly what I got at The Cheese Shop last night. The Cheese Shop is a fantastic, locally-owned cheese shop (obviously), that specializes in American artisan cheeses. Last night they hosted a Beer vs. Wine class, and … Continue reading

I’m a lucky girl. Not only do I have a great boyfriend, but I have a great boyfriend who can cook! One of my favorite things he makes is shrimp tacos. Last weekend, Jessie came over for St. Patty’s Day and Max whipped us up a batch of shrimp tacos with mango salsa. Although I’m … Continue reading

Tuna Noods!

One of my go-to recipes is tuna noodle casserole. Now I know this recipe can get fattening reallll quick, so to curb my casserole craving, Max and I have slowly modified our recipe over the last few years and developed a healthier version that tastes even better than the “real” thing. Coming in at about … Continue reading

Crafting Jewels!

Crafting Jewels!

Last week I went over to Metta’s to learn how to make jewelry. One of her friend’s is great at jewelry-making, and she was nice enough to teach us how to make some of our own! It was fun and WAY harder than I expected…I definitely have a new appreciation for all my jewelry after … Continue reading
