Parsley Pesto Chicken

Sometimes a no fuss dinner is required.  This is one of my favorites.  Currently I work full time, go to school, and run this blog with Tay.  Sometimes it's crazy.  Right now, I got lucky and don't have too much going on with school, but it is because I am waiting to hear what schools I got into (cross your fingers).  Needless to say, this recipe comes in handy often.

Brussels Sprout and Bacon Grilled Cheese

There are those restaurants where I know what I am going to order before I get to the door.  I might pretend I am going to "try something new" but that fools no one.  Some things are just too good to be changed. 

That's how I feel about brussels sprouts and bacon.  It is one of those combinations that needs to be left alone.  It is what it should be.

Apple Raisin Cinnamon Granola

Granola is one of those overly addicting foods.  You know... the kind where you finally have to tell someone to take it away from you because you are in danger of eating an entire jar of it.  At least its healthy, right?  Well... sometimes.  I was browsing the bulk section of my local supermarket and couldn't stop freaking out about how much sugar was in a serving.  Seriously, go check it out, suddenly you will realize that you have been eating candy why the store bought stuff is so yummy.

Don't worry, I wouldn't deliver such terrible news without a solution.  Homemade granola.  Not only is this healthier, it is cheaper.  Can you say win-win?  Well I can... and after this granola, I'm not going back.

Chocolate Rolled Cookie

I am often told that I should be an elementary school teacher.  Those people obviously don't know me well.  Its not that I don't love kids... I do, I just don't want to be around them all the time.  At least not now, talk to me in five years.

Mostly I hear this at my job.  It also normally involves cookies.  I like themed parties/foods/cookies (hence the elementary school teacher).  I can't help it though, something about themed cookies gets me so excited.

Chocolate Truffles Two Ways

 What a few weeks it has been.  First, I took an incredible trip to Seattle (maybe just because I'm partial to the city), but non the less it was great to see so many friends.  If you follow me on twitter you may have seen a few pictures I posted.  The weather was perfect (bring on the gloom!!)  Unfortunately the trip ended just as quickly as it started.  One thing I really came to realize on the trip was that I am ready for change.  Big change.  Of course, the kind of change I'm craving didn't come.  Instead, Tay's computer died.  There were no signs of sickness... it just died in its sleep.  Needless to say, this is why I have been absent.  Trying to move all my pictures from one hard drive to the other and figuring out the next computer Tay and I want has consumed quite a bit of time. 

Sooo... all of this tragedy (dramatic much?) means its time for chocolate.  Truffles to be exact. 

How perfect is that with Valentines Day right around the corner?
