My husband had a great time with the January Hamptons Lane Box (review) – he made 3 recipes (see our spiralizer recipes here). This one uses a spiralized cucumber and jojo’s artisan sriracha for a great, spicy quick pickled salad. We used the World Cuisine Spiral Vegetable Slicer but you’ll get that plus all the other items in the January […]
Spiralized Red Cabbage Slaw Recipe
I love a good slaw (love!) and this one was super yummy. My husband whipped up a quick slaw recipe the other day after receiving our January Hamptons Lane Box (review). He actually made it a second time and added some chia for superfood goodness – I never even knew it was in there. Save $10 […]

These two items are meant to be made together, you’ll see why when you read the recipe – I use the olive marinade to brush the toast and make it EVEN MORE DELICIOUS! This is not a complicated recipe – it’s a how Brandy cooks recipe. Bear with me, it’s worth it! I’ve made the […]
Faux-potle – DIY Chipotle Burrito Bowl/Salads!
I went to Chipotle this week. Looove it! But it’s kinda pricey for every day. Like the first time I went there they gave me gobs and gobs of food but the DC area Chipotles are more than a little stingy with the fixin’s. And $9 for lunch with no drink is NO JOKE. I […]
It’s Friday! Plus super easy last minute Valentine’s Day Treat!
TGIF!! Seriously! I finally started to feel a bit better around 6pm last night. I still have major sinus issues and a terrible cough, and weirdness in my eardrums (um, I’m still pretty sick), but I am actually finally improving. Hooray! I still have some reviews to catch up on. USPS, UPS, and FedEx decided […]

Gluten-Free Brownies Recipe
Yum! It’s time to bake! Fall is here and I was out of chocolate and tinkering in my kitchen and I came up with these great cakey gluten-free brownies!

Mini Donuts – Take 1 (and 2)!
So, I picked up this Nostalgia Electric Mini Donut maker from some crazy sale at Best Buy (go to Best Buy & search “nostalgia electrics” to see what’s still available. At the pickup counter there were literally 5 of them for pickup! They come in these huge metal tins for storage – very cute). It […]
Oooh I got my Penzey’s Catalog!
It has a coupon! That means I can buy more spices, right?? Ummm maybe not. I am so addicted. My husband & I made this spice rack ourselves. It wasn’t hard (but sorry, no instructions. measure, build, paint! well, actually, measure, cut, paint, build). In order to maximize spice storage it has no top. Also, […]
