My great friend Melissa gifted me a Cuisinart One cup coffee maker! As a new teacher, I can’t even begin to tell you how invaluable this snazzy tool will be for me. Seriously, it’s amazing! It’s super cute, in silver, and came with a smorgasbord of coffee and teas. EEEP! I’ll try it out today and then take it to school tomorrow. Fan-flippin-tastic! Mom bought me a Starbucks Espresso…Continue reading
I’ve got a few friends that are “experienced” and “spontaneous.” When they speak of their sexcapades with different men and women (yes, some of these friendlies are gentlemen and some are wonderful members of the LGBT community) I tend to feel lost and somewhat-in-awe of their “Smash Lists.” Call me old-fashioned, but the act of being intimate with another human being is not something I think should be described as…Continue reading
This fitchick is stuck at home, feeling crummy while nursing a heinous cold. I’ve had some calabaza con pollo but still need sleep and about 19 more blankets because it’s insanely cold in this body! Brrrreathing hurts. Blech. This crumtastic day brought a couple of things to mind. 1. No one feels sexy when they have the flu, cold, stomach virus [insert your own kinda-disgusting ailment here] Much like Cameron, I have…Continue reading
…Baby! Salt ‘n Pepa were on to something, ladies and gents. I mean, most responsible [and irresponsible] adults have sex. It’s a primal need to procreate. Everyone does it…right? The straight up answer is yes…and no. Why the heck am I mixin’ my sweet-tea sippin’, pasta-makin’, cupcake-bakin’ opinions on this topic in with my normal foodie finds and fit experiences? Because this year I want to expand my bloggy horizons…Continue reading
Hi ya’ll! It’s Christmas Eve! I’m spending my much-needed family time in the deep south. Tejas! Growing up in such a rich (literally) Hispanic-centered foodie capital has had its thumbs ups and downs. For example, it took going to college (and living alone!) to realize the meaning of portion control. In a family of 6, with 4 men, making calabaza con pollo for anything less than 10 people was considered…Continue reading
Over the weekend, we went on phaaabulous (and quite slippery) adventures while wandering about on the ice. You guessed it, plenty of coffee trips! We heart any reason to be dorky together. It was bundles of fun and I was delusional enough to think my week would continue on as fan-flippin-tastic. Granted, my week was not horrendous – it has been quite challenging. I almost cried yesterday. Naturally, I wanted…Continue reading
The icemageddon hit Dallas on Thursday night. Sufficed to say, we had a four day weekend. Well…I did. The beau had to work Monday because the roads were better. Our school district (and every other one within a 30 mile radius) opted to stay toasty and at home on Monday. Brilliant! I should have graded papers. Meh.Maybe I should have worked on my final exam for next week…erm, no. What…Continue reading
As my first official year in the “big girl” world, I can finally stop drooling over anything that suits my kitchen fancy. Sadly, there is a huge difference between being “able to buy” something and being able to “afford” it. Between student loans, bills and my car payment…it’s difficult to splurge on kitcheny goodies. Thankfully, I know plenty of wonderful peeps who lurve me bundles and are looking to get…Continue reading
I absolutely luurve The Porch! This fitchick loves all things pancake, eggy and homestyle. Thankfully, I found a restaurant to meet these needs, and they do so with a pure love of food!
The Porch offers some amazing, scrumptious, chop-licking, knock-yer-socks-off dishes that will instantly bring a smile to your taste buds. They put a new twist on traditional dishes from around the world. The menu is bold and delicious. Their “Big Board” offers weekly specials that you wish they’d add to their permanent menu. You’re guaranteed to love any dish they smack down in front of you and it’d be a challenge not to gobble up every ounce of that blissful flavor.
