Marmalade ‘N’ Cream Pops + Strawberry Cheesecake Pops

Marmalade 'N' Cream Pops + Strawberry Cheesecake Pops (recipe via thepigandquill.com) #popsicleweek #popsicles #icepops #summerdessert

I know. I’ve been hitting the snooze button on blogging pretty hard lately. But if there’s anything that can raise me from my chemo-induced slumber, it’s Billy’s annual #popsicleweek, which is like the ultimate summer pool party in popsicle form, minus the part where you slink into the water as slowly as possible because holy freezing tatas, plus a hundred or so inflatable swans. Or flamingos. Or whatever hip floatie is this year’s jam. (It’s a cactus, isn’t it? Fuck.) This year, I decided to honor Chris and my fave frozen treats from childhood with grown-up, lazy-girl versions that are … Read More

citrus matcha lattés two ways

Hi hi hi hi hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii guyssssssssss! I’m so very excited to catch you up on all that’s happened over the past few weeks. In the Cliffs Notes version, we road-tripped to Pacific Grove and Mendocino; finally finished settling into our new digs (hey new dining room table, you shaxy fing, you…); planted a garden that I’ve been more or less banned from tending given my track record with living things (Lana is really lucky she’s made it this far); celebrated 11 years of good ol’ fashioned monogamy; and slept in. Yeah, SLEPT IN. Like, Chris woke up with the babe, I … Read More

Easy, Steel-Cut Overnight Oats — and the Sambazon 3-Day Purifying Cleanse

WARNING: This is kind of a long, schizo post. I’d love for you to follow the storyline from soup to nuts, but if you just want the low-down on the review, skip to the middle. If you’re jonesing for oats, skip to the end. I don’t know why it took me so damn long to hop on the overnight oats train {t00t t00t}. It’s no more work than fixing a bowl of cereal or assembling my beloved Greek yogs breakie. You just do it the night before — so in a sense, it’s actually easier. Wake up. Eat. Dance party. … Read More

Easy Baked Panettone French Toast (with Greek Yogurt & Marmalade Custard)

As I’m sitting here writing this, Chris is in the back room cleaning out the file cabinet. It’s a very New Yeary thing to do, and the kind of task that makes a wife’s heart flutter. Maybe because he’s the kind of man to sort through years upon years of receipts, healthcare statements and paystubs (didn’t most companies go paperless with those in like, 2002?). Maybe because it means I don’t have to. Either way, it’s kinda hot — a man who cleans. Oh snap, and now he’s vacuuming. ‘Scuse me for a moment… Meanwhile, I’m cramming my face with … Read More

Iced Pumpkin Spice Lattes (vegan & gluten-free)

Ohhhhh look, we’re back to Pumpkin Hoarding 101. Today’s lesson: put a straw in it! I’m not even going to pretend that there’s anything original about this recipe for Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Uuuurbody knows that, come October, Starbeezy’s put’s the ol’ “It’s baaaaack!” sandwich board out on the sidewalk and the ‘Bucksnuts start raging. It’s become a downright frenzy. There are websites that count down the days to holiday beverage season. And let’s just be frank about it, people. The marketer in me is pumpkin with envy. But instead of dissecting the marketing genius that is the Pumpkin Spice Latte (I … Read More

Power Pie Smoothie (aka Jetpack in a Glass, kah-blammo!)

Earlier this summer I turned 30. I think we talked about it. In fact, I’m pretty sure I promised you at least a post or two recapping all the celebrating (read: championship face-stuffing) we did in New York. This. IsNotOneOfThosePosts. No, sadly for you, this post is a little whinier. Don’t act surprised. Or maybe do act surprised. (Whining, who me?) The bottom line is this: I am now the glorious age of 30, and for my thirtieth birthday — and with my own crazy-lady blessing — I have been gifted with… …a half-marathon. W-T-F you G-U-Ys. How did I … Read More

Pineapple & Spinach Green Smoothie

Good Tuesday, pretties! Hope everyone’s been having a lovurly week. Seven days post-vacay, I think we’ve finally recuperated from our extra-long weekend of glitz and gluttony in NYC — thanks in no small part to a few detox meals based almost solely around things that grow from the earth. (Apparently, the detox ended last night when I decided that a platter of meltingly tender carnitas-style pork belly with Spanish rice and refried beans makes for a balanced meal, but we’ll leave that for next Tuesday’s post. I will say now: no regrets whatsoever.) So what does one eat while trying … Read More
