Not too long ago, I was in New York City, and needed some snacks for my train ride home. I picked up a few odds and ends at Duane Reade, but didn’t finish them on the ride. I thought they’d make a fun dessert trail mix for your next event, or just to snack on. It has a little sweet, a little heat, and plenty of fruit and chocolate. I used pieces of a chocolate bar with nuts, but you could also make it nut-free if anyone in your family or friend group has a nut allergy.DSC_7575 Continue reading “#shop Dessert Trail Mix”

All opinions are honest and are my own. Come on- you know these hot pants aren’t going to finance themselves. DSC_7478We’re not exactly sports people. Don’t get me wrong, we’re active, but with all the other activities we have going on, sports get pushed by the wayside, along with video games and hot dog eating contests. It’s not killing us.

Specifically, a lack of desire to cook so deep that it makes Lean Cuisine meals look like a suicide hotline. Thankfully, Blue Apron, a food delivery and cooking service, stepped in to soothe the soul-crushing workload of ten hours and a brief before my first round of job interviews.DSC_7401

Ribeye and habanero-lager risotto tacos

I’ve adjusted my workout and have started going to the gym more frequently. I swear this isn’t just a vapid stealth-bragging campaign. The weight circuit must do something, because when I come home, I’m starving. My schedule is somewhat polarized- either I’ll want to sit in front of an episode of Weeds with a mixing bowl full of cereal, or I’ll be compelled to make an elaborate, four course meal for myself that I’ll eat in a mixing bowl in front of an episode of Weeds. You see the trend.DSC_6373
