So recently I've been obsessing over making mushroom white wine sauces. I've
made it multiple times and it's never come out the same... this might be because
I am notoriously bad at remembering the exact recipe I used to make a dish and I
tend to improvise A LOT.
I may be bad at following instructions, but hey... Sometimes the best things in
life are unexpected :)
Or as Pinterest has so accurately told me:

So... this is awkward. It's been a LONG time since we've posted anything here.
We've been pretty good at updating our Instagram but let's be honest here.
That's just being straight up lazy.
A lot has happened since we last posted... which by the way was AUGUST OF 2016.
For one, we have a new President. But let's not dwell on that part. Here's some
delicious dishes that we made since then that we failed to write about! We
promise we haven't been COMPLETELY slacking. But we have failed at post
Here's a kinda funky song that I've been super into recently. Listen while you
read! :) And yes I know I know my title font doesn't handle tilde's very well...
I'll fix that soon.
So at my office we have this concept of GSD; Get Shit Done. Every Tuesday, all
engineers have an event on their calendar that'll allow them to hopefully work
quietly without any meetings or interruptions. This usually ends up meaning that
almost all the engineers work from home that day. So, I'm usually happily
I can take 0 credit for this post title because my friend Aneri themes her
birthday based off of all the puns she can make with her own name. This year
with all the ruckus that ever entertaining Donald Trump has caused, it only felt
right to have her birthday be "Make Anerica Great Again." PSA: Please do your
research before this election season :)
Also... I HAD to include the video for this song because 1) Katrina Kaif looks
gorgeous and 2) it's so damn catchy that it's become my new obsession
So recently it was one of my closest friend's, whom we lovingly call Lil Dicky,
birthdays. Can't say she's entirely fond of that nickname, but that's 1/2 the
point of nicknames anyways. In that spirit, here's some Lil' Dicky for you to
listen to while reading this post.
This may be one of my favorite cakes I've made so far. I've realized that I am a
BIG BIG fan of chocolate whiskey cakes. The coffee and whiskey that you add in
tend to cut the sweetness of the coffee perfectly and only leaves a
So I don't have a themed song for this week's post BUT I will leave you with my
new obsession for the week. I love the original song by Zella Day but this mix
is also amazing. Enjoy!
Ever since I was a kid, I was always that weird one who LOVED spinach. All my
friends would fight and complain but I would ALWAYS ask for more. I know. I was
that kid. I was also that kid who would happily drink a glass of plain milk
every day. Anyways... I love spinach. Whenever I used to make omelets for my
I am something of a potato aficionado. I have eaten far more than my fair share
of potato, roasted, baked, chipped, fried, stir fried, mashed - you name it, I
have probably tried it. I love potatoes, and today I decided I wanted to eat
potatoes for lunch, and this is what I came up with.
These are not especially nutritious, but they're not necessarily bad for you
either. I would, however, recommend adding a vegetable or something somewhere on
the plate. Or you could just eat potatoes for lunc
K this second post for the week took a bit longer than expected but I finally
perfected the pictures so we're good now. YAY Post #2 for the week! And that
too, to celebrate one of the nerdiest holidays out there! STAR WARS DAY!
All the wonderful puns.
Also because this recipe is banana filled, I HAD the little song by the Minions
from Despicable Me stuck in my head. So I figured I should share that
adorableness and mental torture with you guys.
Anyways... after being home sick for an entire

So I was terribly sick last week whilst recovering from Coachella so I've
decided to treat you guys with not one but TWO whole posts! I know right?! So
awesome. You can thank me later. AND to make things better... instead of sharing
just a single song... I'm going to gift you with a whole playlist of my favorite
songs from Coachella!
So very typical of me, I didn't double check my flight timings when booking so I
ended up flying out to LAX a whole 10 hours before the rest of my group. I

There's something about the combination of chocolate and orange that just gets
me every time. I love to make hot chocolate with just a few drops of orange in
it, and I have been dying to make chocolate-y bread with bits of orange zest
woven through it.
But this weekend, I found myself with coconut flour and coconut cream, and
decided on chocolate cookies with a delicious, lightly orange-flavored cream.
If you want to get all hipster buzzwords about it, this recipe is: grain free,
I'm sure most of y'all have been on a bar crawl - you have a list of bars, and
you hit them up one after the other, sipping a little of this and a little of
that at each one.
This is similar, but with FOOD. While you are certainly welcome bring booze into
the mix, these are instructions for figuring out an all food crawl; it's an
excellent way to explore a new city!
It's also a really good way to spend a couple of hours with friends without
spending a ton of money; if you're on a budget, this

I know I know this week I'm kind of skimping out! I have been rushing to get my
week's work done by yesterday so that I can be ready to fully enjoy Coachella
this year! I am currently on my way there and unbelievably excited! I will
report back next week with all the food and excitement!
I had made these Cinnamon buns a while back when I used to make treats for my
coworkers (unfortunately it's been some time since I've done that). I didn't
really experiment too much, more or less made the recip
