It’s really been 7 looonnnnnggggg months since I’ve posted anything here? Time sure flies. I’ve since moved to Hawaii and am learning how to adjust to the sticker shock on the price of food out here.
Still though, it doesn’t mean I sacrifice my good eating habits. I’m going to make an effort to continue posting here. Since food is such a HUGE part of my life. Even more so now that I’m pregnant. Having to watch what I eat to make sure I’m getting enough protein and all that kind of stuff. So, stay tuned!
Today, I’m linking to a website that an old coworker of mine referred me to. I’m applying for a position being offered there which is why she sent it over. Since I will be having to cook for a child soon enough, this couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time!
For all you parents out there, check it out. I like that her style is very friendly and approachable.

I came up with this fast, healthy, grain-free breakfast solution mostly out of desperation. In my rush to get out the door every morning, I kept missing “th…
Well, this was an awesome idea!
Who says you can’t play with your food?
This post needs no words, really. But I couldn’t resist putting my 2 cents in. Damn, what an awesome blog!!!
Five simple fucking ingredients in this bitch right here. This is some good shit to make when you are feeling bougie as fuck. High-fructose corn syrup? Naw son, I don’t play that. Hit this with some vodka though, different story. Max relax.
5 cups of water
1/2 -3/4 cup sugar (yeah, it is fucking lemonade. without the sugar it is just real sour fucking water)
3/4 cup Meyer lemon juice, about 6 lemons (you can just use the regular lemons at the store too, not a dealbreaker)
juice of half a lime
4 sprigs of fresh lavender
Bring the water to a boil in a medium pot. Add the sugar and simmer that shit on a low heat for about 5 minutes. Make sure to stir it on the regular. The sugar should be all dissolved in the water by now with no little fucking grains rolling around in there. Turn off the heat and stir in the lemon juice, lime juice, and lavender. Let it cool until it is around room temperature. Take the lavender pieces out but use a fucking spoon and not your fingers if you are going to serve that shit to other people. Put the lemonade in the fridge to cool down all the way. Serve with lemon wedges and a pinch of dried lavender if you want it to look fucking impressive.
makes about 1 quart of chill the fuck out
