Almost every week my girlfriends and I try to get together either for a happy hour at a restaurant or a low-key dinner at someone's house. Our schedules are all over the place, but we all make an effort to clear them since "girl time" is a necessity for us.Read More
If you've been following my blog for a while, then you know that I don't typically make the healthiest of meals. I made food that I know J and I will enjoy, and if that happens to be filled with carbs and butter, then so be it. I do, however, swap ingredients for healthier alternatives when I can/need to.Read More
Can you believe it's already June?! We are halfway into 2017 and there is still so much I want/ need to accomplish. However, I have worked hard to accomplish many things already.
For one, I've started a new career with my Twin Sis! We are a real estate team with JB Goodwin, REALTORS®. (Click here to learn more about The Cangelosi Team & browse homes for sale and rent in the SATX area.)Read More
I've made this recipe several times over the past few years and each time it gets harder and harder not to go back for seconds and even thirds.
Again, I don't know why I haven't added this recipe to the blog yet since it's one that is easy to make, requires ingredients that you almost always will have on hand, and it tastes good every time.Read More
The in-laws and J's grandma came in this past weekend for a quick visit. Oddly enough, I've never once cooked for them when they've been in town! How could I let them visit so many times without experiencing my cooking greatness? This I will never know, but we ended the curse this weekend.Read More
I certainly haven't posted a recipe in a while! I guess this just goes to show that I haven't had much time to try out new things. Luckily, for good reason, as twin sis and I's real estate career has taken off recently.Read More
We've come to the end of our at-home date night meal from this weekend. Last on the menu, Maple Coriander Roasted Carrots- a side dish that is super simple to whip up, but tastes decadent and expensive.Read More
After a busy work week for both J and I, we decided to have another "date night" at the house making a brand new, and complex recipe out of the cookbook I received from my brother-in-law for Christmas. Conveniently enough it's titled Date Night In.Read More
For Christmas my Nana gifted me a subscription to Food Network magazine. I'm excited every time a new issue comes in the mail, but I was particularly excited about this March's issue because it was The Italian Issue!Read More
My laptop is perched on my "food belly" writing this post today. It's been a while since J and I branched out of our normal meals to cook something different and tasty. We've tried a few new recipes, but, unfortunately, they weren't blog worthy. (Hate it when that happens...).Read More
For Christmas my brother-in-law gifted me an amazing cookbook called "Date Night". It's filled with three to four course meals you and your partner can prepare and enjoy together. I was so excited to receive this, and didn't take long to start planning out J's and my future at-home date night meals.Read More
Guyyyysss! Where has the time gone?! Why is it that when the holiday season rolls around, the days seem to fly by exponentially? Isn't this time of year supposed to be a time of quiet reflection and relaxing with family...?Read More
You know those days when you're running around working, Christmas shopping, cleaning the house, doing laundry, etc. and the last thing you want to do is make something that takes an hour to cook and prep?Read More
Wow! Can you believe Thanksgiving is this Thursday? Where the heck does the time go?
Because our family will be happily stuffing our faces with all things unhealthy on Thursday, I've decided to keep the rest of this week's meals light so that I can enjoy the holiday semi-guilt free.Read More
I've been sticking to making our "classic" dishes lately since we haven't felt too adventurous with meal times. This Sirloin & Tomato Tortellini recipe is another one my mother-in-law gave me back in the day. She definitely has some great ones, and she recently gave me two more to try, so stay tuned!Read More
I've gotten kind of bored lately with my lunch meal routine. I haven't been going out to eat much to save some cash, so I've been eating most meals at the house. My typical lunch consists of either leftovers from the night before or a lean cuisine.Read More
I seriously love this recipe. It's one of my favorite go-to's for when J and I want to eat something delicious, but uncomplicated to make.
I first had this meal when I visited my now in-laws' house for one of the first times. I just had to have the recipe, and thankfully Momma L sent it over ASAP.Read More
John and I watched The Others on last night after enjoying a delicious bowl of this soup. First thing is first - why haven't I seen this movie until now? It was great! I knew the 'twist' before starting the movie because I've heard so many people talk about it over the years, but it was nice to finally see how it all played out.Read More
