Friday Things

A baseball game and lots of food.  This is what I hope to do tonight. But first, I’m hosting an event at work for Think Pink, an organization started by a group of high school girls to raise breast cancer awareness.  We’re lighting our towers pink for the month of October and the girls are…

Cookies by Design

My good friend at work and I have birthdays that are a few weeks apart.  Usually, we take each other out to lunch, but this year she stepped it up a notch by ordering decorated cookies. This immediately started a trend.  I had two weeks to find cookies for her and have them shipped to…

Poppabox

I will fully admit to being one of those people who’ve succumbed to the food porn on Instagram. I post a ton of food pics there myself.  Instagram and Yelp have become two of the biggest tools I use when trying to decide where to eat (I also subscribe to a ton of local food…

Applesauce Dump Cake Experiment

I noticed that my Peach and Blueberry Dump Cake with Pecans and Pecan Dump Cakes recipes were getting a lot of views lately. It seems that Pop Sugar posted an article a last week that contained both recipes. Thanks, Pop Sugar!!! Their article led me to this Applesauce Dump Cake Experiment. I received a few…

Friday Things

Ah, Friday. Pizza Friday. What a week. Miles and I have a new roommate. His best friend. He’s staying with us for a little while. I have to admit, it’s kinda nice having two boys around, and I’m glad that I was able to help out a friend. I’ve also used this week to clean…

Terra’s Kitchen | Review + Offer!

Meal delivery kits are so in right now.  They all seem to tout that they are healthy meals, using all natural locally sourced ingredients, easy to make, will walk your dog, do your taxes…ok maybe not, but they do seem to present something that seems too good to be true.  Quick, easy affordable healthy tasty…

Thai Iced Tea Popsicles

  I think these Thai iced tea popsicles may be my last frozen treat for the summer. Even though it’s still 80 degrees outside and fall officially begins this week! I wanted to try the popsicle mold one more time.  I love the look of the popsicles, but it’s harder than a dickens getting them…

Friday Things

This is where my head has been all week.  Unfortunately, not in a fun way.  Along with the cold weather that’s moved in (77 degrees), it’s also the start of fall allergy season and my head has been cloudy all week! Things are finally beginning to settle after the first couple of back-to-school weeks, and…

Brasserie Beck

I’m beginning to wonder if it’s possible to eat too many croque monsieur’s.  It’s one of my favorite sandwiches, so whenever I see one on the menu, I have to order it.  I feel like I’ve eaten at least three this summer, which normally wouldn’t be that much, but add that with doughnut testing, and…

Whiskey and Rye Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ah, cookies.  It’s time to get back to cookies.  And boozy desserts, so naturally when I saw this recipe for whiskey and rye chocolate chip cookies, I had to try it for myself.  Every time I see a recipe out there, I always have a “why didn’t I think of that” reaction. I’m beginning to…

Sticky Rice – Update

For those of you who don’t know, I tend to go to Sticky Rice on H Street whenever I’m in the mood for tater tots.  It’s really a sushi/noodle spot, but they have really good tots!  Even their sweet potato tots are really good and those are very hard to make.  Even sweet potato fries…

Toffee Crunch Ice Cream

Ok, so maybe I’m just going through an ice cream phase.  I can’t seem to get enough of my new ice cream maker!  And it’s still a little summery out, so there’s still time for a little batch of toffee crunch ice cream.  I wasn’t really trying to break new boundaries with this flavor, it…
