Mangia Bene

I've been experimenting over here in the kitchen...with some success and one big disappointment. Chicken thighs, artichokes, roasted red peppers and rosemary in the crock pot? Sounds good, right? Not so much. It was basically a stewed rubbery chicken dish that lacked color, and none of the flavors combined. Mooooving on to the winners! Garlic Mashed Cauliflower,  Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower Bites and (Healthy) Chicken Bacon Alfredo. These were all things I'd make again- easy and pretty tasty!

Friday Fancy: Plum Pretty Sugar

I'm the first one to admit that I can be pretty girly at times.

So I was immediately in love with the very feminine sleepwear and apparel at Plum Pretty Sugar. The breezy lounge pants, romantic-patterned robes and chic cami gowns not only look beautiful but also comfortable. Wearing them would make me want to stay in my jammies all day...which I suppose is really no different than any other day, but I'd look a whole lot better wearing these than the usual not-so-hot old flannels.

Breakfast Bliss

Guys, I finally nailed it! After some experimenting, I have the perfect recipe for the easiest 5-minute protein pancakes.  Very healthy - No flour. No sugar. No milk/dairy. No oil. But they're pure deliciousness.

NEED. Now.

Mint. Cheetah. Snakeskin. D'Orsay pump. These are the best shoes ever. That's all.

Beginnings and Happenings

Happy New Year...a week late! We celebrated the night at a friend's house playing cards, drinking champagne and eating too much yummy food. Our feeding frenzy started with apps including Bacon Blue Cheese Dip and Venison Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms, both courtesy of the Sailor. (I hit the jackpot with that guy- He cooks; he cleans; and he fixes things!)
