Let’s be honest… gift-giving is fun, but it can be so difficult. And so expensive! So instead of giving you the typical “list for him/her” with items that might cost a small fortune, I have broken this list down into several categories and kept things pretty affordable. There is a ton of room for crossover in these categories, so make sure to browse them all, and don’t forget to leave a comment letting me know what you got or are adding to your own shopping or wishlist!
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are one of my all-time favorite candies, and putting them in cookie form and including browned butter? Oh man. If someone stole one of these cookies from the cookie jar, it was probably me… and it was definitely more than one.
I grew up on stroganoff made from Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup. I loved it, but I never knew stroganoff could be more flavorful and have more complexity to it. This recipe, with its creaminess, depth of flavor, slight heat, and hearty thick-cut mushrooms and steak chunks, is a regular in our weeknight dinner rotation.
Something I love about going back to San Jose is revisiting some of my favorite places and discovering new ones. During our trip this summer, we did just that. We ate our way through some of our favorites places at San Pedro Square Market and visited the best little spots in Japantown, and today I’m sharing my food guide with you.
My Amaretto Cherry Cheesecake might seem intimidating, but it’s more simple than you might think, and the flavor combination is a real showstopper. The main thing to remember when making this recipe is that patience makes perfect cheesecake!
With our recent move, I missed my June Favorites post, so I’m happy to revive it this month. I’ve doubled down on this post by including a bunch of things that I would have liked to include in the June post if life (and 800 boxes) hadn’t gotten in the way. This month’s favorites cover some favorites in home, beauty, and style. Enjoy!
Since I was about 10 years old, I’ve suffered from chronic back pain. So why am I writing about it now? Because in the decades of dealing with my pain, I’ve learned some ways to help manage it — ways that don’t include prescription drugs or doctor visits, and I want to share my methods in hopes that it might help others.
There’s something soothing and comforting about a cup of Earl Grey tea and Walker’s Shortbread Cookies… or biscuits, depending on which side of the pond you’re on. This no-churn ice cream combines these tea time staples into a flavorful, slightly salty, slightly sweet, and satisfyingly creamy and crunchy dessert.
Prime Day is here (and almost over!) again! I spent hours online combing through the deals and talking myself in and out of putting items in my basket. Ultimately, I remembered I’m poor, so I only walked away with a few items. See my tiny haul and some Prime Day tips for this holiest of online holidays!
Okay… so I know we’re already about halfway through June, but hear me out… I’m a teacher and my school gets out way late, so I’ve been up to my eyeballs in grading and putting out fires (mostly metaphorical ones) for the last few weeks. I only just had the brain power and time to sit down and write about my May favorites, and I’m so sad that it’s so late, but I do love these items and I really think they’re worth sharing.
