BROCCOLI TOFU SCRAMBLE

November 27, 2016


Safe to say my diet is officially on…ugh, hold.

Who decides to start eating better the week of Thanksgiving anyways? The chocolate cake was totally worth the cheat BTW. It was an unexpected non-traditional addition to the dessert table which I have to say, was most popular among the classic apple and pumpkin pie. I’ve never made a cake from scratch before so I followed Sarah Kieffer’s recipe to a T. Thank goodness B helped because the whole process was…a process. I didn’t realize how much work goes into making a cake! The measuring, the sifting, the whipping, beating, and stirring. So. Many. Steps. Then the frosting! Oh my goodness, the frosting. Chocolate everywhere. Legitimately, everywhere. It was borderline a disaster. And then transporting the cake to my parents…LOL. Send help.

How to gain 5 lbs in 1 month: bake biscotti, scones, and doughnuts (in that order), eat multiple daily for best results. Holy hell. I am so full.

It’s been such a cold rainy day here, AKA the perfect day for my favorite Ribollita!

I made this soup for B + I this time last year during a snow storm and it was the perfect meal to cozy up with on the couch. I can’t believe we are days away from Thanksgiving and Christmas music is playing at the mall! Time seriously flies. Continue Reading

HOME OF THE BEST IPA’S IN THE WORLD: MONSON, MA

November 6, 2016

We went on a roady! And it was so much fun!

So here’s the thing about Brian. It takes very little to make him happy. Brian’s happy when I’m happy, when Remi’s good, and when there’s good beer in the fridge. No but really, he’s not happy unless I’m happy…and there’s always beer in the fridge. I know, I know…he’s a good one. Continue Reading
