Worth the Fast

With the Chap’s arse early schedule and my annoyingly long commute, we are always in search of the next best breakfast on the go. The Chap said he was missing things he could just grab from the freezer and take, so I did what any girlfriend would do and made two dozen brekkie sammies. We…

Dreaming of a White Carbohydrate – Pommes Aligot

A full week of work and healthy eating under my belt makes me very happy to see the weekend. I’m cutting carbs and dairy from the diet which is so boring and makes me scarily observant as to just how much of my diet had been comprised of such, especially over the last month or…

Charleston

After a few months of over-festiveness and a grueling work schedule for the Chap, we decided a romantic getaway was in order. A fresh start for a fresh year. A fancy hotel in an idyllic foodie setting was just the trip in order. Charleston or bust! That is until we decided we’d bring the 50…

A Beach by Any Other Name…

I recently test drove my third instalment of North Carolina beaches, the brilliantly named Carolina Beach. I’ll never complain about toes in the sand and a drink in my hand…but less of a hillbilly carnival atmosphere is found elsewhere. I may have found a cigarette butt in an omelette, there may have been a few…

This Little Piggy…

Not long ago, the Chap fixed me the most incredible welcome-home-from-your-family shenanigans dinner. While I love to cook, the best part about this particular meal was the not cooking. Well, the best part after eating it anyways. A long weekend of family is always…long…but I got to hang out with the he nephew who decided…

Lady and the Tramp

Lady (Moi). And the Tramp (The Beast). And also the Chap… were all itching for a carb fix we’d better make some tagliatelle from scratch. So we followed Marc Vetri’s recipe. I found this true gem in the email foodie newsletter, Tasting Table. I highly recommend both the recipe and subscribing to that newsletter if you…

Standing (Ovation) Rib Roast

The chap’s recent dinner party coupled with the insane stretch of time on my hands in between gigs has me inspired to do about not much else other than cook and bake. The original plan was to get super in shape with my three weeks off or convince my friends or chap that taking a…

Asheville

A few weeks ago, the Chap began describing to me a cabin he’d found in the mountains near Asheville. I said it sounded cute and he responded he was glad because he’d already booked it. I love surprises so insert shit-eating grin here. We arrived into the little town of Fairview after a four hour…

National Puppy Day

I didn’t realize how much I missed having a dog until one galloped back into my life recently. Brady is the sweetest, most rambunctious five month old golden retriever pup. I hadn’t seen him in a week and when we were reunited last night, he took a running leap in the chair I was sitting…

Carrot Patch

Easter is coming!!!!!! Which means I’d like to talk to you about…carrots. I’m not big into carrots. The veg, roasted are way too sweet, in hummus are boring, and I don’t think cakes and cookies should contain vegetables. I’d leave carrots to the bunnies until I found this recipe!
