I turned on some Ben Folds Five, preheated my oven, and mashed bananas together with eggs. It seemed like the only way to make the day manageable. There was also a Fiona Apple and Shepherd’s Piesituation that occurred later that evening. I’m telling you, I really cooked my feelings into submission. Also, Fiona Apple brings the appropriate amount of angst to Shepherd’s Pie. It makes it edgy (dare I say, Criminal? Get it? #chickrockpuns #lilithfairkitchen) I highly recommend it.
I don’t know about you, but when things get hard, or my to-do list starts to span pages, I tend to drop everything and head into the kitchen. This is how I work things out. There’s meditation in there. You’re forced to clear your mind, focus on what’s in front of you, and if all goes right, deliver a satisfying result (that you can then eat–which is a much better outcome than doing laundry — you can’t eat your laundry).

I started this week off by washing my face with shampoo. Well, technically it was both shampoo & conditioner since I have a sweet all-in-one-lazy-girl-combo. No, this was not intentional. It was confusing to have such a thick lather on my eyebrows and cheeks. Even though this is my usual gentle facial cleansing routine, it took too long for me to figure out that something was amiss. Finally, the light bulb went on after experiencing the mind-blowing-sizzling-shampoo-induced- inferno burning up my eyeballs. I think this set the tone for my week. Yep, it’s been great. I don’t feel crazy.
Alright, so it’s already day two of the#SoLetsPigOut Summer Potluck! Woo hoo! You ready to get your sunshine-y drank on? Cool. So are we.
If you’re just tuning in and you’re scratching your head wondering why I’m hashtaging things about pigs everywhere… this would be because my friend Emily (The Pig & Quill) and I have teamed up in an epic celebration of summer potluck-ery. Continue reading →
Hey Everyone! Today is a REALLY exciting day in these parts! I’ve joined forces with Emily of The Pig & Quill, who just happens to be one of my favorite internet-turned-real-life-friends/best-person-to-eat-a-plate-of -sticky-chicken-wings-with-on-a-sweltering-summer-day. #Truth
I also want you to be able to get to know our lovely week-long co-host, so we’ve both concocted a couple of professionalstandard kinda-random but oh-so-telling interview questions for each other. To skip to Emily’s interview CLICK HERE. You can find my answers to these questions over on her pageHERE.
So we’ve put together a week long event called the #SoLetsPigOutPotluck (see what we did there? I know–clever). It’s a celebration of summer where we’ll be sharing a collaboration of recipes we’ve made just for you, as well as giving away some fun prizes from great brands. For example, not only is there a recipe for some crazy delicious wings today, but you can also enter to win $225 worth of prizes from Mighty Nest!
On Friday the potluck goes internet wide as we will be joined by 20+ bloggers who will help us create the ultimate virtual summer potluck. There’s going to be a lot of pigging out going on this week. I hope you’re ready! We sure are! #SoLetsPigOut Continue reading →
Okay, so this isn’t entirely true. I made a healthy ice cream + cheesecake + carrot cake. Yeah, I know, it got a little bonkers. But, I promise it got weird in the best way possible.
After finishing the Whole 30, my brain was swirling with desserts. Can you blame me? So when the folks from Paleo Parents sent me a very nice e-mail asking me to write a guest post for their blog, I decided to go big. My brain flipped the “LET THERE BE CAKE!!” switch. So here. Cake. All the cakes. Smashed together into one glorious no-bake cake. Continue reading →
