Nostalgia (Recipe: The Altamont Grade School Poor Boy)

Too Old for Comfort? (Recipe – Diner Meat Loaf Muffins)

Slightly Obsessive and Menu Plan Monday

I get slightly obsessive about things, especially when it comes to food and cravings. For example, last week I received an email from a friend about Cinco de Mayo and the very mention of that awesome holiday sent me into a “I MUST have Mexican food, now!” frenzy. Later in the week, I was at […]

Mythical Balance (Recipe: Just Like Lambert’s Thrown Rolls)

If it hasn’t been clear by my lack of posts lately, I seem to be having a very difficult time with balance. People say “don’t worry about it, Kristen… you’ll find your “me” time again”.
