I could totally live off of appetizers, or as fancy people call them “tapas”. Tony and I’s favorite thing to do at restaurants is order a ton of appetizers to share for a meal. That way we get to try few things and generally, appetizers are always easy to eat, finger foods.

Sometimes, you just have to say F*ck It and eat the damn bread. Am I right? Or am I right?
Bread is my kryptonite. Give me carb loaded, warm bread any day of the week over a cookie. That brown bread from the Cheesecake Factory – that’s like Gold Kryptonite (aka completely debilitates me).
As you know, I have a diabolical skill… creating insanely over the top recipes. I mean, if I can stuff an Oreo and a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup into one cookie, game on. So, what’s the Oreo/Reese’s equivalent for bread? I give you… Bacon Jalapeño Popper Stuffed Cheesy Pull Apart Bread. Aka “Crack Bread”. Any time I hear the words “stuffed” and “cheesy” in one sentence I get butterflies in my stomach. This bread is legitimately addicting in all the right ways. Continue Reading

One of my favorite parts about being self employed and owning my own business is sharing my experience with others. Something that really resonates with me is teaching other young women how to create their own success stories. I think it’s important that every woman, whether they’re 15 or 45 know that they can create the career of their dreams. There are so many options and the sky is truly the limit for what you can achieve. That’s why, I’m so excited to share an interview I recently did with my new friend Ashes Coupas. Ashes is an all-star Uber driver who has created her own career to support her family and put herself through college. Continue Reading
This last week was such a whirlwind. I feel like we just got back from Mexico and were already on a plane headed to visit my family up north for Thanksgiving. I’m originally from a town called Santa Rosa in California. It’s about an hour north of San Francisco. Now, I’ve got family spread out throughout the Bay Area and Sonoma County. My dad lives in Mill Valley, my sister lives in Greenbrae, the rest of my family and friends live in San Francisco, Santa Rosa, Cotati, Petaluma and Glen Ellen. I’m literally tired just typing that all out. We did a lot of driving to say the least. Continue Reading
As you guys know, Mexico is one of my favorite vacation destinations. Not only is it a quick flight from San Diego, you can go almost any time of year and have great weather. I visited Punta Mita over the summer with my Dad, Sister and Doug and couldn’t wait to plan another trip to bring Tony. Punta de Mita is a fishing village/resort area on the Pacific coast. It’s nestled into a small peninsula on Banderas Bay. There are tons of beautiful homes, golf courses and private beaches. Continue Reading
Thanksgiving is over. If you’re like me, you’re still in a food coma from last night. Now, we’re faced with the aftermath: leftovers. Don’t get me wrong, I love leftovers. But after 6 straight days of Thanksgiving food, I get a little bored.
There are tons of ways to reuse your turkey and mashed potatoes. Make sandwiches, whip up a soup, add some bacon to the potatoes, etc. But what are you supposed to do with all of that leftover pumpkin pie? Obviously… I have the answer. You make a pumpkin pie milkshake! If you want to get really sneaky, call it a “smoothie” and make it for breakfast. Pumpkins are basically vegetables right?? Continue Reading
The holidays are officially here. A ton of you have been messaging me asking for recipe ideas and I’m going to be honest, I’m not on top of my game right now. I’ve been so busy with work and traveling, I’ve barely turned my oven on in the last few months.
One of my signature Lazy Girl moves when entertaining or showing up to a party: make an epic cheese plate! Cheese Plates are an awesome way of putting together a super last minute appetizer that looks impressive but takes relatively no time or skill. Perfect right? You can totally cheat your way into everyone’s hearts by throwing some cheese and meat onto a cutting board. The trick is: you have get kind of artsy with it and throw a few other things on that make it all look pretty. But at the end of the day, everyone will be happy because they get to eat cheese.

You guys… it’s almost time to start decorating for the holidays! I try really hard to wait until December every year to put up our tree and start decking our halls out with tinsel and lights. One of my favorite holiday traditions is getting an Advent Calendar. If you’re not familiar with them, they’re generally a cardboard calendar filled with chocolates. Every day, you get a piece of chocolate as you count down to Christmas. Continue Reading
Hey guys! I’m back!!!!!!! As many of you guys have noticed, I’ve been fairly absent from social media and the blog. Everything is ok, don’t worry! I just kind of felt maxed out. I was in need of a little detox. You know, an internet cleanse. I got a ton of messages and emails, making sure I was ok… which I totally appreciate!
Opening my phone every morning to see news of death, disasters, name calling, drama, complaining, extravagant lifestyles, one uppers and everything in between can be really exhausting. There’s so much negativity, unwanted commentary, shaming, etc going on all day. Everyone is an expert. Everyone is promoting their lives, successes, failures and opinions. Continue Reading
