I’ve been grieving this week.  Please prepare yourself for a very dramatic reason as to why I’m grieving…  Ahem… I’ve started looking for preschools to put my baby in this fall.  My heart is completely broken, shattered, and torn into a million pieces. (Dramatic, I know.)  HOW is it possible that it’s time to put my (our) baby in school?  I’m not mentally prepared to send her off everyday.  I’ve cried all week thinking about it.  So, I’m stuffing my face with these burgers.  Continue reading “mexi-veggie-burgers”

Perfect Tomato Sauce

tomato sauceThis tomato sauce couldn’t be easier or tastier!  It’s my go-to sauce for everything pasta…pizza…or bread!  My favorite dinner is: buy some crusty bread, smear the inside with lots of garlic-butter, bake it until it’s warm and crusty, tear it apart and dip it into this sauce with a nice glass (or two) of cab…O-M-G!  Perfect dinner!!!  Who needs meat and pasta when you have bread and sauce?!

Roasted Veggie and Quinoa Salad

quinoa saladOMG!  We just bought a new couch and I cannot tell you how EXCITED we are to get it next week!!!  🙂 🙂 🙂 The couch we have now was bought for staging purposes (while our condo is/was on the market) and is quite possibly one of the most uncomfortable couches in the entire world.  I know.  That sounds so dramatic.  But seriously.  It’s awful.  So, since we’ve swallowed a BIG “this condo may not sell anytime soon” pill, we’ve decided to make our condo a HOME instead of living in this uninviting, impersonal space and I could not be more excited!!!  If only I was a good decorator… Continue reading “Roasted Veggie and Quinoa Salad”

Sweet & Sour Cauliflower

sweet and sour cauliflowerI must be totally honest here and say one thing about CAULIFLOWER.  It’s not my favorite vegetable.  I’m really not a big fan of it at all.  Although, I do love it if it’s riced or mashed and smeared with a ton of cream and butter.  Other than that, I rarely buy it.  As of late, I’ve had this “problem” with buying things just because they’re on sale. (Please don’t ask Omar about this.)  I don’t know what it is about that SALE sign or sticker, but I’m a sucker for it.  All that to say… Whole Foods had their organic cauliflower on sale this week and I couldn’t resist buying it.  I tried not to look at that sale sign, but it screamed my name!
