weekend
I'm grown, it's summertime, and sometimes you have to sit around in airy garments and eat cold treats so you don't melt into a puddle. No apologies and no shame.

As easy as it is to pick up some Sara Lee from the store, it’s even easier to make a good crust at home. It just takes a little science.

Themed food, ugh. But you CAN celebrate PRIDE with dishes that fill your plates with a rainbow of gorgeous, delicious and unexpected seasonal veggies. Annnnnnnnd I also made gourmet rainbow shots.

Perhaps the most surprising thing about my first trip to France some years ago was discovering how light much of French food is. However, this is not one of those dishes because F that, we're suiting up for winter.

I loathe football, but my lord, do I love the Superbowl. I’m all DGAF about the game itself, but even I can celebrate THE END. If they made Superbowl pasties I’d wave em about while offering my houseguests crackers and cheese.

It's the middle of winter, when my energy has to be conserved for knitting, sipping hot toddies, stoking the fire (this is a lie, I have a fake fireplace) and cuddling the dog. Who wants to work harder in the kitchen?
oreos
I could not have dreamed of better flavor endeavors. These are COOKIE DOUGH and MARSHMALLOW CRISPY flavored Oreos.
