SKILLET APPLE CRUMBLE

September 27, 2016

I don’t know if I should post this as a breakfast or dessert. I’m totally in my PJ’s in the photos so I guess I can’t hide we had ice cream for breakfast. Haha. IT BE LIKE THAT SOMETIMES! B ran out this morning to get Remi (monster) food so I asked him to pick me up this ice cream I’ve been obsessing over lately. Continue Reading

SPAGHETTI SQUASH BAKE WITH PUMPKIN + SAUSAGE

September 24, 2016

Happy fall! I can officially wear a flannel + Uggs without being judged. Yes, Uggs. I know some people are indifferent to them nowadays but I can’t help but love them. I don’t care if every female under the sun owns them. There’s nothing like sliding your toes into those warm, fuzzy boots. I will gladly wear my flannel with my Uggs sipping on a PSL all season long. Lmao. Basic and proud. *Flips hair* Continue Reading

CORNMEAL WAFFLES WITH ARUGULA

September 20, 2016

Work has been so hard lately. I’ve been working on more acute units and caring for sicker, more complex patients. It’s like a constant reminder that life is a gift. It may sound cliché, but when you work in the hospital and see that it can be taken from you within a blink of an eye, you start to appreciate the small things a little more. The piles of laundry don’t seem as important. The dishes in the sink or the stuff you’ve been meaning to return for a week now just don’t matter. You make time for what’s important and the other stuff just has to wait. Continue Reading

CURRIED CARROT SOUP

September 16, 2016

Our first Christmas B got me the ultimate gift, a Vitamix. I was speechless, in utter disbelief that someone loved me enough to splurge on this luxury kitchen appliance. The North Face button-down shirts and Clarks I got him were instantly less-cool. Lol. Continue Reading

ROASTED ACORN SQUASH WITH PARMESAN CHEESE + CURRANTS

September 13, 2016

I realize I may be rushing this whole fall thing on some of you since we technically have 9(!) days left of summer. I know, I know, I should be outside soaking up every last second of the summer sun. Whenever September hits though, I can’t help but think all things fall. Roasted veggies, soups, stews + crusty breads, cooking for me is much more comforting during these cooler months. AKA it’s officially leggings season and I can totally get away with dessert every night.

Today was the first day the air felt different on our walk with Remi this morning. I was borderline cold walking by the water without a jacket. I can’t wait until its socially acceptable to wear leather boots, denim, and flannel everything. I guess I’ll have to contain my inner basic for a couple more weeks. Can’t make any promises, though. *crying-laughing emoji* Continue Reading
