Super Model Project: Sweet Chili & Mustard-Glazed Salmon

I’m over here just trying to hone my seafood skills…it’s always so easy to just order out in restaurants, but I hate to make it at home. Don’t ask me why. If you’re a bit seafood adverse in your home kitchen, like me, this is just the recipe for you. Chrissy Teigan claims she’s a little…

Super Model Project: Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts

Vacation is in T-31 days as of today! I hope you’ve been enjoying my healthy-ish countdown on IG story. Everyone knows the next step in vacation prep after excercise and mass veggie consumption is consuming bread at the same rate of Chrissy Teigan. However, in an effort not to consume bread or in Chrissy’s case,…

What’s Up, Raleigh?

Our little city is growing! Maybe some credit goes to T&L placing Raleigh on the to visit list in 2017, but the downtown neighborhoods are booming! I’ve never seen so much activity as I have this weekend! After working from the comfort of sweats and a couch all week-long, I “forced” myself to wrap up…

Thinkin’ Dirty, Not Clean

This week I spent the whole week working from home. I tried to tagalong to another conference, thought about traveling to see friends, or test-driving a hotel solo. Mais non, nothing really panned out, so I stayed in and had myself a healthy week. I’ve implemented skin brushing and probiotics into my diet and begun…

It Goes Down in the DM

Well, after briefly trying Snap Chat last summer and finding multiple platforms completely unnecessary, I’m back in the “story business” on IG. I released my inaugural story yesterday – a truly stunning series of daily events. Jokes. Just the little bits of daily life that are lovely enough to share. PLUS, I decided to track…

RPM Italian

During four days in Chicago, I managed two trips to RPM Italian. How’s that for a review. On night one, the Gent and I had a delicious date night. The meal was so tasty that it prompted me to return before the Psychedelic Furs show to try the few things I’d failed to on night…

Nico Osteria

Playing tag along to the Gent’s meetings last week in Chicago was far too enjoyable. I saw lots of friends, but also kept a “treat yo’self” day for myself. The day started with a stroll down Michigan Avenue, reflecting on how much it’s changed and how much isn’t   there anymore. Less than enamored, I…

It’s Friday, I’m in Love…

Soooo it’s been a little while since I’ve been loving on Fridays, but I’ve saved up a few bits and bobs of the last few weeks. So, without further ado, here are some of life’s little pleasures. 1. Adidas Pure Boost- these are literal foot clouds with high arch support. My have found my jogging…

Funk Food: Almost Take Out

It’s another funky Friday over here in the land of macarons and mayhem. Though, I must say things are looking more like this than any sort of trouble, which is just fine by me. Socializing and (a few too many) cocktails were out of the way early this week so tonight I’m just talking you…

Funk Food: Lavash Pizza

In the continued quest for funk food, aka fake junk food, I rediscovered my love of lavash. The thin, soft unleavened bread can be used as a wrap or toasted up as a pizza. This can be found near tortillas and other flattish things in your grocery and the half off sign prompted me that pizza…

24 Carrot Magic in the Air

This is definitely the cake Bruno Mars croons over in his 24 Carrot jam. It does, in fact, only contain eight large carrots, but I think you’ll let it slide after you taste it. My next door neighbor did (apartment 414) when he ate HALF of this cake in two days. That is an impressive…

Spicy Shramps Over Cheesy Polenta

In a money saving effort of late, I’ve been combing through my pantry trying to use up weird things I’ve bought for this or that project. That’s how I found the freakin’ vat of polenta that’d I’d purchased for a dinner I’d over-planned awhile back. I figured, I’d better get cracking on using that up, so…
