I wrote a post about body image a while back and I feel like I need to bring something up. Have any of you heard of skinnygossip.com? It’s a “thinspirational” blog dedicated to being a bitch about anyone bigger than a size two’s size. Maybe you’ve heard of them because of the controversy over what they’ve said about Kate Upton. Now I’m all for people being...

It was brought to my attention via a kind of rude reblog (or maybe it’s just me) that my kitchen cabinets were messy and that they looked really bad and my dishes do not match and are not worth looking at. Because of this I feel like I need to let you guys know a little more about me and my life. I am a 21 year old college student. I just moved into this house with my boyfriend and his...
I haven’t posted in a while because frankly, I’ve been super busy. I had finals for school, my boyfriends graduation weekend, paperwork and other such nonsense for getting our lease taken over, and now working on moving. So now the next 2 1/2 weeks are going to be filled with packing, throwing stuff out, slowly loading cars up, apartment hunting (because unfortunately we’ve...
So I realized that all these awesome dessert recipes I have, while delicious, aren’t very adventurous. So I want ask of you tumblrs, what should I make? I want something fun and funky, something that I can be creative with. Think cupcake wars or Sweet Genius (which I watch religiously). So whatever you have shoot it to me.
Oh dear god
So to try and fill up my extra time I decided to start taking a zumba class every Monday, and possibly Thursdays as well if I don’t feel like killing myself. Tonight marked my second class and phew. What in the hell did I get myself into? I know I’m not in great shape to say the least but I didn’t think I was in THAT bad of shape. During my first class I felt like my muscles...
Your body and you
So today I wanted to write a more serious blog post. Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of stuff having to do with body image and that not being a size 0 is ok. Because of this I wanted to write a post talking about body image, self worth, etc., and my own personal thoughts and struggles with it. Now before you read this I want to clarify: I am not trashing people for being overweight. I am...
You may be bigger than you thought
I’ve been seeing a lot of articles and posts lately where ladies have posted about discovering they were not wearing the right bra size and discovered they were indeed larger (usually only a cup size bigger and a band size smaller) than they thought they were. So out of curiosity I decided to remeasure myself and see if I was indeed wearing the right bra size. Now I’ve been wearing the...
Pink lemonade mini cakes
Two updates in one day! Holy cheezewiz Batman! So I just finished making these adorable little mini cakes and they are, well, adorable. When I went grocery shopping last week I was perusing the center aisle displays and noticed that Pillsbury came out with pink lemonade cake and cookie mixes. So of course I had to buy a box of the cake mix to try out and what do you know? The back of the box had a...
Southwestern Pizza Con Queso
Hello Kittens! So for dinner I made some delicious, albeit very messy, pizza. This is yet again another Pampered Chef recipe (seriously guys, they’re cookbooks are great: http://www.pamperedchef.com/) and is fairly easy to make. Instead of a pre-baked crust I used a pizza dough mix and the only difference is you need to pop it in the oven for about 2 minutes longer initially. Also I learned...
Well, I was going to post about these delicious lemon meringue cupcakes I was making this afternoon. However, upon taking said cupcakes out of the oven and letting them cool I thought they looked a little weird. I stood there for about 5 minutes trying to figure out exactly what happened and why they looked so strange and so dense. Wouldn’t you know it? I forgot the darn baking powder in the...
Chai Swirl Cookies
Hello once again kats and kittens! So my plan originally was to make some delicious cupcakes but both the different types I considered making I either didn’t have neough of an ingredient or just plain didn’t have it….soooo those will be done at other times. Instead I decided to do these cookies that I have been meaning to make but just haven’t gotten to. They’re so...
The joys of grocery lists
So, at the end of each month I sit down and pull out all 7 of my cookbooks, my recipe cards, and my online cookbook (a bookmarks folder with recipes I like that I haven’t put onto recipe cards yet). I then proceed to go through all of these, as well as browsing through food network and other sites, and select a months worth of recipes (Usually it ends up being 15 recipes and I double up just...
I know, I know. It has been so long since I posted. First I spent Mardi Gras weekend in New Orleans (photos to come!) and then school decided to hand me my tush. Luckily, next week is spring break so I should have plenty of time and no excuses for not getting some posts up. Today is grocery list day So I am going to share with you the process I go through in selecting a month’s menu which...
Pork Tenderloin Tacos
Hello again Kittens! Hope everyone enjoyed their Valentine’s Day! So today is yet another Pampered Chef recipe with a couple of my own touches (you’ll notice a pattern with my recipes. I was given a TON of Pampered Chef cook books that I am trying to do a lot of the recipes out of). So first off here are the ingredients you need to make 4 servings: 1 medium onion, 1/2 a cup cilantro...
So, I know it’s only day two but I of course didn’t even think about the fact that its Valentine’s day and I was going to be spending the day with my boyfriend……so basically, No real post today because I’m going to be too busy being lovey dovey. But I promise there will be one tomorrow.
Peachy Cheese Coffee Cake
Alright kittens, this is my first blog post. Send me any suggestions or comments! So this is a recipe I found in one of my numerous pampered chef cook books. Its a pretty easy recipe that works for a sweet breakfast or a tasty dessert. In reality its more of a danish pie than a cake, but it is tasty none the less. Ingredients: 2 packages refrigerated crescent rolls 1 package (8 oz.) cream...
