DIY: 3 Ingredient Marshmallows

Whipped Cream Marshmallows

A few months ago I tried making homemade marshmallows and it was a war zone. So messy. So annoying. They tasted like they were from a health food store or something (you know, not quite right). I called it a Pinterest fail and moved on. Can’t win em’ all. THEN… a friend of mine told me you can make marshmallows out of 3 ingredients. You know how I feel about 3 Ingredient Recipes… I’ll literally try any of them. Cheap, easy & 9/10 times super tasty. That’s right, you can put your DIY pants on and make your own Marshmallows with me!

Hot Date: Quick, Cheap & Easy Fried Rice

Easy Fried Rice

So it’s not a huge surprise that I’m all about simplifying recipes. It’s not that I’m even lazy (ok sometimes I am), it’s that I don’t have the time or energy to go to 4 different grocery stores, scour the nooks and crannies of a farmer’s market for a locally sourced herb, or spend 2 hours mincing and pureeing ingredients. On the other hand, a lot of “quick” recipes and frozen foods aren’t the greatest for you. The other day I was having a major craving for PF Chang’s Fried Rice. I had a few options: drive 20 minutes to PF Chang’s and spend $$$ on some Fried Rice, go to the grocery store and buy something frozen that had a laundry list of weird ingredients and intense levels of sodium, or make some myself!

So it’s officially September… which means the world is now rotating around Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Is it me, or does it seem like every year more and more Pumpkin Spice keeps popping up? Like I totally get the whole Latte phenomena, but do we really Pumpkin Spice flavored Kale Chips? Gag me. So nasty. Also, does anyone else think it’s weird stores are already selling Christmas decorations? I mean, c’mon guys… it’s still swimsuit weather.

Roadtrip: Eating Up the West Coast

So I’m sitting on my couch, bundled in blankets and sweats, drinking tea… and it’s like 90 degrees outside. I just got back from a week of traveling and am sick as a dog. Don’t you hate that!? I swear, every time I fly I get some nasty cold.

Treat Yo Self: Back to School Shopping

unspecified

Ok, so it’s common knowledge at this point that I’m not in school anymore. And I don’t have anyone to take “back to school shopping”. But, I really miss the whole back to school shopping deal. I wish I could call my dad up and be like, “Hey want to stock me up on some socks, bras & t-shirts?”… those things are expensive!
