Five Dolla Dinna

It’s hard to arrange time to make a good, balanced meal while in college. Schoolwork is stressful, money is tight and time is scarce- sometimes we need to take a break from the chinese take out and tackle those good-for-you foods. Don’t fear- it won’t be expensive, it won’t be time consuming, and it’s already […]

Havana on Earth

This weekend has been great- it felt so good to just kick back and relax and not have anything to majorly worry about. A weekend of retail therapy, good friends and great food is exactly what I needed. My good friend Josh and I (See the other posts about him here and here) went off on a […]

Pizza Pre-Game

There is no better food than pizza before going out to party while in college. Or any day. Making your own is fast, cheap and is easily shared between friends. I totally get ordering pizza- online ordering is one of the greatest/worst things ever invented- but it can take forever and you either have to […]

Football Food

I never used to be a sports fan- it just kind of happened. My first football game was a magical experience; the energy and spirit and fifth row seats convinced me to become a true Seminole. I bought war paint and got chills when the commercials came on TV- I even travelled to North Carolina last year […]

Quino-what? Little Quinoa Cakes for Dinner

I love everything about cookbooks. I especially like the ones with photos on every page and amusing commentary- I like to read them like books. The Borders here in town is going out of business and I gathered up a couple of really great cookbooks. I like to consider them table art after I’m done […]

The Greatest Combination on Earth

There’s quite a few great combinations when it comes to food. Chocolate and chicken, salt and watermelon, milkshake and french fries… those are kind of weird, but one of my favorites is the classic chocolate, peanut butter and bananas! I was so excited about tonight’s late night snack that I just had to post it. […]

I Simply Remember My Favorite Teas and Then I Don’t Feel So Bad

Anyone get the titles’ reference? I love the Sound of Music- it’s one of my favorite musical movies and Julie Andrews is wonderful.  I’ve had a rough start. This semester has, so far, been very emotionally trying and the thing is, none of it is over. My anxiety over the break in led to a […]

Easy Summer Dinner: Roasted Grape Tomato Pasta Toss

I wrote a bio for an art class recently and I talked about how I get enthusiastic about everything. Even if I’m mad, I’m enthusiastic about being mad, do you know what I’m saying. Good food gets me really happy and usually I think of meal ideas a couple hours in advance and then I […]

Happy Birthday Joshua!

This is Joshua. He is the worst and the best, the calm and the storm, the problem and the cause. All in all, he is one of my very closest friends. He is the most rational person I know and will only give me honest answers- which I can thank and hate him for. Joshua […]
