Three of My Favorite Cookie Recipes

Happy Tuesday!! Since I have SO much content this week, I need more than my usual three blog posts.  Yay!!! This weekend, my friend Anna and I are hosting our 4th Annual Cookie Exchange.  Our girlfriends look forward to this party every year, and this year no exception.  We&#8217…

Recipe Exchange!

Two years ago, I hosted a recipe exchange that was a HUGE success.  Honestly, I still cook some of the recipes I got at that exchange.  It’s so fun because not only do you get fantastic recipes, you know whether or not you like them! Anyway, this year…

Sweet Heat Chicken Bowls

  Is anybody else feeling like summer is more hectic than the school year sometimes?  My gosh, for as much as I love the chill nature of summer, I feel like I’ve been running around like a mad woman. Which is why, blog babes, I came up with…

You Had Me At Breakfast Tacos

(I should subtitle that-Outside Texas..) Breakfast tacos.  Let’s discuss.  I have spent an excessive amount of time in Houston because one of my college besties lives there.  I had never thought of the genius idea of tortillas for breakfast and, once I discovered such wonderful things, my…

6 Ingredient Slow Cooker Spicy Pulled Chicken and Veggie Tacos for Two

The irony of a Catholic posting this recipe on a Friday in Lent is not lost on me.  Obviously, I won’t be eating these tonight +:). There are few things in the world that make me more annoyed with myself than forgetting about fresh veggies and letting them rot…

St. Patrick’s Day!!!

Top o’ the Mornin, and HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY.  This is a very special day in Irish-American culture (do the Irish celebrate as much as we do?  I wonder…), and I’m looking forward to celebrating over the next week.  The photo above is…
