Creamy Lemon Asparagus Pasta

If you have ever seen any of my other pasta blog posts, then you might notice that I tend to use a lot of the same ingredients, but vary the recipe a bit here and there. I also tend to use what I have in the fridge rather than going and buying specific ingredients. So…

Lavender & Oat Bath Soak

I have been growing lavender at my desk while i’ve been working from home these past couple months. They went a little crazy, and I kept forgetting to water them, so I decided it was time to harvest the lavender & plant a new round of pods into my AeroGarden. Deciding what to do with all…

Cheesy Brussels Sprout Skillet

I always say Brussel sprouts not Brussels sprouts…that’s interesting, I’ve been wrong this whole time. Who knew? Well, you have found the perfect recipe for your next party. Having a party or going to one, this dish will be the best of them all. (When parties are socially allowed again, for now you can make…

Growing Broccoli

Well…Trying to grow broccoli. So I planted broccoli seeds in my AeroGarden Farm Plus 200 days ago, and today I finally decided it was a bust. Such a bummer, but it was a good learning experience and I still had fun. I think it was just too hot in the Farm Plus and it was…

Beach Life

Sorry I have been MIA for the past 2 months, life got pretty busy that I just didn’t have time, and mostly the energy to write my weekly blog, but now that I am settled…it’s time to get back into my regular routine. So, in the midst of this shitty pandemic, Adam and I managed…

Green Chili Rice w/ Chicken

I really, really tried to use everything in my house before going to the grocery store, and because of this I have been getting pretty creative. I had one chicken breast, a bag of frozen mixed vegetables, frozen spicy green chilis, some chicken broth, and rice…and hence the name of this dish. First, I cut the chicken…

Chicken Mashed Potato Balls

It’s time to go grocery shopping again, but I don’t want to go until I have used almost everything in the kitchen (trying to limit my exposure to the virus by going to the store less..) So, that just means I need to get creative, and my creativity of the night is…Shredded chicken and mashed…

New Piece

I finished up a new painting recently, and I am happy with the end result. The background is my favorite by far, yet the center gave me a bit of trouble. I actually painted like 3/4ths of the center triangle, didn’t like it, painted it over with white, and tried again. I still was not…

Ball is life

A message from Cosma – Ball is life. That is all

Ground beef, onion & mashed potato pierogi.

When I was a sophomore in college, my boyfriend at the time (now my fiancé) was living with one of our great friends, and he was OBSESSED with pierogi. Like, he basically ate it every night for dinner, mostly because it was super easy to warm up the frozen kind. So now anytime I even…

Butternut Squash & Asparagus Bisque

The other night, I was trying to think of what to eat for dinner, and all I knew was I needed to use the asparagus in the fridge. I was kind of sick of the normal ways I cook asparagus so I decided to invent something, and that happened to be this super tasty bisque that…

Hey! Guess what… I’m getting married 😀 Still got some time, but I have chosen all my ladies. Ashley A – Maid of Honor. Ashley is my oldest friend, our friendship starting all the way back in kindergarten, and I am sure lasting all the way until we are old and insane. Emmy Y –…
