  • Aglio, Oglio e Peperoncino

    It’s time for pasta, and boy have I got a recipe for you!  It’s a super simple, super quick dinner for 2 that will keep you coming back time after time.  It’s spicy, garlicky, creamy, and savory…it’s simply perfection.  So pull up a chair, grab a pen and paper, and get ready, because this one […]

  • Beauty on a Budget

    Who doesn’t love getting new beauty products?  But let’s be real, trying out new products can also get a bit out of control.  Walking through Sephora often feels like a beauty landmine, especially by the time I make it to the checkout line where I am tempted with all of the cute little minis and […]

  • 101 in 1001
  • 4 Months

    So I am roughly 4 months into my fantastical mini life goal list (you know, my 101 in 1001), and things are actually going really really well.  When I have come back to review my list lately, I have actually been surprised at how quickly things are going.  I couldn’t have imagined checking so many […]

  • Dining Out
  • the Crack Shack

    Today marks the start of a new series on the blog, and it’s pretty self-explanatory, “Dining Out.”  As you have totally figured out by now, the hubby and I are both big foodies, and so we are always excited to try a new restaurant.  But possibly different than other online resources for food, we are […]

  • Healthy Turkey Chili

    There is something about the arrival of the New Year that inspires a lot of people to eat healthier and set fitness or health goals for the rest of the year.  And although I haven’t set any goals for myself for 2017 (can you hardly believe that I don’t have a list going?!?), perhaps I […]

  • Style
  • New Year, New Look

    Do you ever feel like your style is constantly evolving and changing?  Sometimes I feel like I have just figured out what I want to do in terms of style and decor for our apartment, and then I see a picture or visit someone else’s home and everything changes. And you know what?  That’s exactly […]

  • In the Kitchen with Katie
  • Shrimp Risotto

    For New Year’s Eve, after a whirlwind 3 weeks out of town, the hubs and I decided to stay in and cook one of our favorites, Shrimp Risotto.  Creamy, sweet, savory, garlicky…this recipe hits all of the right notes and will keep you coming back for more (pretty much until you finish the pot). For […]

  • Welcoming the New Year

    Ringing in the New Year, welcoming 2017, starting fresh, however you put it, we had a great time.  In fact, to be honest, I think that the hubs and I enjoyed one of our most favorite (relaxing) New Year’s Eve and Days ever. We were initially just excited by the idea of being home (which […]

  • Happy New Year

    Don’t you just love this time of year?  Out with the old, in with the new…reminiscing on the past year and looking forward to the New Year…new goals, new dreams, new hopes, new desires?  I love everything that the New Year represents – it gives me new energy and gives me the sensation of a […]
