Da Beach!

This past week, I had the most amazing time with my in-laws in Port Aransas. We stayed on Mustang Island in a gorgeous home that was within walking distance of the beach. The best part – you can drive your car/truck/golf cart onto the beach and unload all your gear without having to carry it

The Office Burger

The Office Burger

This. Burger. Right. Here. I can’t tell you how delicious this was! Ok, I can. It was AMAZING! It is hands down the best burger I’ve ever made at home. I saw the recipe in Food Network Magazine, and my inner preggo said that I had to have it. (Their picture is way better than

The Perfect Boiled Eggs

Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich

Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich

Now that I’m pregnant, I can’t have anything. Ok, that’s dramatic. I can’t have a lot of things that I normally would reach for every day (cold turkey sandwiches, hot cup of coffee in the morning, glass of wine…). The struggle is real on that last one. Anywho, when I saw a recipe for Avocado

Salt – Sal – Salz – Sale

Salt - Sal - Salz - Sale

I thought it was fitting to begin this blog with a quick blurb about one of my favorite things in the world: salt. I’m much more of a savory/salty kind of person versus a sweet one. (That goes for both food and personality.) Here are my ponderings on salt: Table salt: Use sea salt like
