Stovetop Mac and Cheese
How rich do you have to be to buy a pair of $300 amazing Tom Ford sunglasses and not care? Because that is how rich I have decided I need to be. I bought the $10 knockoff pair on Amazon and am trying to trick myself…but I am still convinced that the $300 pair must [...]
Pumpkin Dream Cake
Today I turn 25. I have officially lived a quarter of a century. In dog years, I’m like 405234 years old. In these past 25 years, I have found myself. I may not know everything, but then again I probably never will. But I do know who I am and I know what I like, [...]
Chocolate Covered Potato Chips
There are a lot of questions that we face during the day..and I have decided to become a Yes! girl. Should I have another glass of wine? Yes. Should I make my first time home owning girlfriend a house warming gift basket? Yes. Should I hit snooze another time? Yes. Should I buy that $10 [...]
Devils Food Cupcakes & a Baby Shower for Erin!

Clementine Breakfast Cake
I am kind of anti-social. Not like totally, but partly. I am great in person and am mostly not weird online –keyword being mostly. I am also awesome at texting and emailing…but there is something about the telephone that makes me all weird and awkward. There are all of 6 people that I regularly ...
Spicy Sweet Potato Hummus
Hummus is quite possibly one of my favorite dips. Well besides eating straight up sour cream on pretty much anything…even a spoon. I’m not the only one who likes that right?! I still remember the first time I had hummus and I remember thinking, thank god this tastes nothing like chickpeas! It’s not
Espresso Poundcake with Maple Bacon Icing & a Nespresso Giveaway!
Hello, my name is Jessica and I used to buy $4 cappuccinos all.the.time. I am a coffee snob. I wish I wasn’t and I hate to admit that I am. I have tried making french press coffee — I can never get it to taste right and it takes FOREVER — I have owned a [...]
