Everday I’m Waffling

I decided last night that I was going to make waffles this morning for breakfast. I wanted to play around with my usual recipe, which I get from the ultimate cooking bible… Seriously, this cookbook is one of my favorites. It literally has EVERYTHING you could ever think of to cook in it. For waffles,…

Frittata Fun

Tonight, I just wanted to make something quick and use up a few things in the fridge so they wouldn’t go bad. I love making frittatas, because you can add whatever you like in them. I cooked a pound of bacon in my cast iron skillet, added a container of mushrooms in the bacon fat,…

Panini love

Tonight I am hanging out with my family at the hospital. My husband brought some take-out from Figo, an Italian place that has antipasti (they have these amazing aranchini, rice balls), homemade pastas, salads, and paninis. Everything I have gotten there has been yummy, but I’ve never had one of their paninis. I chose the…

Sunny-side Up Leftovers

My girls LOVE runny eggs, sunny-side up is their favorite. So when I was trying to sell the leftover Chinese food we had in the fridge, I knew I had to top it with these beautiful eggs. B is an egg drop soup fanatic, so when I topped her beloved soup with an extra egg,…

My first post

Hey all! This is my first official post, and I am super excited!  I actually have been thinking about creating a blog for quite sometime, but I wasn’t really sure how to go about it or what I wanted to write. I decided to look at myself and my life and search for a topic that I can have…
