No Bake Oreo Cheesecake 

Happy New Years Eve all! Not going to lie I’m so happy it’s my first weekend off in three weeks and ya girl is beat… however I wanted to get one more recipe in for 2016 before the ‘New Year, New Me’ phase kicked in (Ha). So I blogged about how one of my resolutions…

Pork Carnitas

Hey y’all! It’s the second week of the year and I’ve been consistently meal prepping (let’s praise the lord on that one) and trying to get it together. I know I was doing a half job during the busy season at work but I’m back and better than ever! This week I made pork carnitas…

Winter White Cranberry Cosmopolitan 

Happy New Year everyone! I wanted to start my 2017 posts off a little differently with a drink (because who doesn’t love a nice cocktail). I absolutely love grabbing dinner and drinks with friends, going to happy hour (it is the happiest hour after all) and making a good drink when I entertain. For my…

Perfectly Cooked Ribeye

Merry Christmas Eve! It’s the holiday season and what’s a better than a nice ribeye to celebrate with family? Probably nothing… With that said last night I decided to make a nice ribeye steak for my boyfriend and I. But it wasn’t just any ribeye, it was a perfectly cooked (medium temperature) steak using the…

Super Simple Salmon Alfredo 

Dinner doesn’t have to be extravagant and hard! I really wanted some alfredo homemade of course. I also wanted some salmon. I’ve had them married together before so last night was definitely not going to be any different. I stopped by the grocery store grabbed some salmon (enough for a few days outside of my…

Southern Comfort Food: Shrimp and Grits 

It’s the weekend and some how during busy season I was given a Saturday off (look at God). So I wanted to talk fun food like shrimp and grits (it’s ok to be excited). It’s comfort food and it’s perfect for the cold as well (it’s snowing here so I’m living for comfort food). A…

Cookie Competition

Happy Foodie Friday (yes I realize it’s not Friday anymore, let’s pretend, let’s also not mind my appearance in this picture it’s been a long December… already). Today’s post revolves around my stores bake off that I previously mentioned. Now if I have not mentioned it I am not a huge baker because it’s just…

WCW: Brunch Edition

Hi all! So so excited to get some posts out about my weekend. I finally had off this weekend (way more than needed), and I did it in style versus sleeping, which is what I should’ve done. I got to have some drinks, spend time with my friends and brunch the weekend away. Kiara, Kayla…

Thanksgiving 

Hi everyone! It’s been so so hard to write because as I mentioned in my very first post I am in retail management and probably worked between 70-80 hours this past week. Needless to say I was sleeping when I would’ve wanted to write. But anyway I’m back and I wanted to reflect on the…

Produce Junction vs ShopRite 

I previously mentioned using produce junction as a main source of my produce to help cut my grocery bill down. Last week I did start there and was very successful. I bought not a ton of items but the amount of each I got was abundant enough to last probably two almost three weeks, stuff…

Easy Sprouted French Toast with Apple Compote

As mentioned in a previous post, my dietitian mentioned I should add sprouted bread into my diet as another form of healthy carb. But what kind of foodie would I be if I just made a plain sandwich…. so I didn’t. Now don’t get me wrong there are definite ly sandwiches to come, but it…
