What's Goin' On

Let's take it back...  When Backstreet Boys, Christina Aguilera, and Ja Rule and J Lo hung out on MTV.  What am I talking about?  Remember this??

Wait a second.  When did Christina look like that??  Also...  I miss Eve.  This was one of my favorite little collabos.  Awww... Eve said, "Evie gonna' be lastin'".  No honey... no you didn't.  Side note: I would TOTALLY be psyched if Gwen and Eve crashed my party.  JUST SAYING.  Gwen is totally working the g-string line above the pants look.  So glad we're all a bit more mature now.

Okay,  I'm done.  I just got crazy caught up in some early 2000 nostalgia.  Have fun?  YouTube is an amazing thing.

Gimme all your biscuits



Hello!

You're out enjoying the sunshine, aren't you?  Possibly on a walk, checking your phone/email/facebook.  Feeling healthy, bright and springy, right?  I mean... it's gorgeous outside.  For real.

... But here I come shoving cinnamon biscuit thingies in your carrot-crunching face.  I'm so mean.

Hopefully you'll forgive me and make these before you remove me from your friends list/twitter feed/blog roll/list of people you'd invite over for dinner.  I'd like us to remain... close.

(Not creepy close... just, tight.)

So allow me to put you out of your misery upfront:  This is a pastry hybrid, hell-bent on making you swoon over your morning coffee.  Part cinnamon roll, part biscuit from heaven.  I'd imagine NPH would eat something like this on a crisp autumn morning.  NPH loves himself some crazy hybrid food, kids.  LOVES IT.

Eat Those Greens

I can't always be eating butter and sugar.  I'd like to... but I can't survive on just that.  Paula Deen should know what I'm talking about.

My thighs love the days I eat green things.  Things with vibrant colors = happy thighs.  We want our thighs happy, so we can eat the butter and sugar later.  It's all about balance (and justification).  

Also, I've resolved to not post crappy sub-par pictures of food here.  These are pictures that have bad lighting/poorly-set food/ugly bite marks (I totally don't ever take those last ones , but I thought I'd let you know I would save you from them, should they ever happen).  

When it came time to make this pasta salad, I had several things working against a potential blog posting:

1. I had company (my dad and step mom) coming over, and time was an issue.  Everything takes twice as long when you're photographing it, and I didn't want to feed them at midnight.

2. It was dark.  Do you have any idea how disgusting food looks when light with conventional overhead incandescent lighting?  Revolting, much???

3. I just didn't think anyone would want to read about healthy things.  I was wrong.  So wrong.  Not only do you want to read about healthy things, but you want to read about THIS recipe.  You all practically screamed for it.  When the time comes, I promise I'll make it up to you and take gorgeous shots of it for you.  I may even reference this blog.  YOU DON'T KNOW.

So instead of giving you pictures of beautifully sliced avocado, green pilly piles of broccoli, and gently tossed orzo pasta, I give you...





Cori loved the pasta.  She gave it two thumbs up.  Eat your greens, kids!
