Dear Grilled Cheesus

Apparently, today was National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day. So in honor of the great Grilled Cheesus, I will finish up this post that I’ve left sitting in limbo for nearly a month. Hey, sometimes procrastination pays off! I grew up in a cheese-less home. Oh, come on, it’s not that... Read More

Beeeeeeer! Bread

We don’t generally have beer in our house. I’m not a big fan (in fact, I downright can’t stand it…though I do loves me a good framboise!) and Shake’s kind of picky about his beers. Plus, a six-pack of beer takes up so much room in the fridge, a place... Read More

Last week, on St. Patrick’s Day, we had green food for dinner. It had booze in it. But it wasn’t Irish. Nope, for the great green holiday, we went Mexican.

Meatless Monday or Dipping a Toe into Vegetarian Waters

Fancy-Pants Breakfasts & The First Thing I Ever Cooked

Breakfast is awesome. Too bad it happens so early in the day. Sugar + Shake rarely eat breakfast at proper breakfast time. It’s either technically breakfast because it’s the first meal of the day, but eaten at lunchtime—Does that make it Elevensies? Actually, it’s more like Onesies or Twosies…—or it’s... Read More
