unpopular opinion
Peering into the grocery carts of the women that surround me I wonder, how lazy or busy does one have to be to not be able to cook your own oatmeal without the help of a microwave?

Twice this week I have made a dinner I had to dump directly in the trash.

The following items have ridiculously high profit margins and are a terrible value. I am often stupefied at the ridiculous cost of some of these items when you and I know what they cost to make yourself.

PUT DOWN THAT BLUE BOX RIGHT NOW. Here's my go-to recipe for perfect, gooey, delicious homemade macaroni and cheese. (With a bonus gluten-free option that's just as amazing.)

Friends, I have drunk the green Kool-Aid. No, not Ecto-Cooler. That's good, too, though.

You thought you wanted me to make dinner, but you had no idea.
