Not a Spice Girl

Written by
I'm not a spice girl. Pumpkin Spice, that is. But, I do like pumpkin. I like using it to make desserts, but I really love using pumpkin in savory dishes. I use a cup in my vodka meat sauce and it's the best sauce I've ever had. So the other day, I decided to try a recipe for a pumpkin alfredo sauce. Wow! It was fabulous. The sauce features just a hint of pumpkin-- and it's perfect. Here's the recipe if you want to give it a go. Tortellini with Pumpkin Alfredo Sauce Ingredients: 20 ounces fresh cheese tortellini (or…

Hold My Beer

You've been to weddings before. You know that part where the officiant says: "Speak now, or forever hold your peace"? Well, this groom's dad didn't even wait for that part...   Awkward! Does dad ditch the reception then? No gift, I take it? P.S. I get a little pit sweat just watching this. LOL

E.T. (and all chocolate-peanut butter lovers) will rejoice over a dream come true-- a GIANT container of Reese's Pieces...     I want to snag two jars of these. Not because I'm a complete foodie, but because I want to surprise one trick-or-treater with this massive jar. Could you imagine? It'd be like winning a game show. LOL And we'd be the favorite house in the neighborhood...

Pumpkin Around

Apple cider. Pumpkin donuts. Maple, apple and cinnamon. Hayrides, corn mazes, pumpkin picking. It's fall, y'all. Click HERE for all the places you can go in the NEO to soak up the fun.  Have a donut and some hot chocolate for me when you're out with your people doing your fall thing. I'll do the same. It's like we're hanging together. Here's some pumpkins for you. They have nothing to do with fall...

Hot & Cold

Written by
It's that special time of year again: Dilemma Season. It's the in between cold and kinda-cold. Beautiful and pleasant during the day; Nipply at night. And by nipply I mean-- able to cut glass. I loathe the idea of turning on the furnace in September. Seriously, the first week of the month you're sweating from places you didn't know you could-- then by the third week of the month you 're wearing socks and comtemplating how cold it'll get inside before you cave. I woke up Saturday morning to 64 degrees inside our house. No biggie. Wear a sweatshirt. After…

Halloween. It's a time for spooky fun, candy, scary movies... and channeling your inner sexy-- and letting it hang out!  Yandy is the company that's brought us sexy Halloween costumes of real-life events like a collegiate costume for Operation Varisty Blues; a sexy Mr. Rogers costume (for when the movie came out), and now... making Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin all sizzly-hot... costumes inspired by Tiger King. So. Many. Puns. In my mind right now...  The Coolest Cat costume (left) is $49.90 and the Tiger Queen costume (right) is $67.95. A lot of $ for very little material... whatevs. P.S.…

Fleather

Written by
Fleather. It's what I call "fake leather" (because 'faux' is too fancy for me). I'm obsessed with fake leather leggings. It started when my bestie wore a pair and looked amazing. Then, an ad for Spanx leather-like leggings popped up in my feed and I wanted a pair. But not the $79 they were asking. So, I channeled my inner bargain shopper and sprung into action. I now own 3 pairs of fleather leggings: two from Old Navy and a pair from Target (Target's were only $16!). And I spent combined less than the $79 Spanx was trying to lure…

Fleather. It's what I call "fake leather" (faux is just too fancy for me). I'm obsessed now with fleather leggings. It all started with my bestie wearing a pair, and lookin' awesome! Then, an ad for Spanx fleather leggings came up in my news feed. But they were more than I was willing to spend-- $79. No. Way. So... I activated my bargain shopper, and now I own three pairs from two different retailers: Old Navy and Target. The ones from Old Navy were on sale, so I paid no more than $20. The pair from Target was only $16--…
