One of my favorite restaurants is Red Lobster, or "Red Slobbers" as I called it as a child. We go there for my birthday almost every year, and you'll always find me with an Ultimate Feast or a plate of Snow Crab Legs in front of me. I learned from a young age how to... Continue Reading →
Mac ‘n’ Cheese is Back!
Well I did it. I made the deluxe cheezy mac from the Daiya brand to test it out. Even though we've enjoyed the allergen-friendly pizza from Daiya, and have heard rave reviews from personal friends, I still tried not to get my hopes up, just in case. Long story short, this week we bought two... Continue Reading →
Cheese Me, Please.

The Power of a Crockpot
Is using a crockpot considered old fashioned? Honestly, just writing that makes me feel old, even though I’m not that old (still in my twenties for another few days). However, in a time when the Instant Pot is a norm, I’ve begun to wonder if maybe slow cookers are becoming a bit archaic. It's made... Continue Reading →
To Cookbook or Not?
When it comes to cooking, there are two styles in our house. One needs a cookbook or recipe to follow, every T crossed and I dotted. The other one wings it. Can you guess who uses which style? I do my best when I have a recipe to follow. I want to know what I'll... Continue Reading →
