    Diary of a Non-Cook: Ground Turkey Stuffed Peppers

    Ground turkey rules everything around me! Even though J is sooo over it. The world is just a better place with ground turkey versus ground beef. HAHA, says the girl who loves ordering burgers. I will say, as long as I’m not handling it, then I don’t mind. I don’t even really like to handle raw meat in general (dirty minds, stop!), but I do since I’m like an adult these days 😉 When you do your monthly Costco run and home home with four packages of ground turkey, you immediately grab your phone and bring up Pinterest and type in — ground turkey + dinner = WA LA, you…

    Diary of a Non-Cook: Fiesta Ranch Dip

    What’s the trade-off for a quick dip recipe? It may come out looking like throw up! No biggie, right?! Good thing it tasted okay. I honestly don’t think there’s anyway to make it presentable or to make it NOT look like throw-up in a bowl, no matter how nice your dish is… The end of last week was really focused on L’s bday party on Saturday, pretty much everything else was an afterthought, until that the party was done. Then we decided to head to Tahoe for more birthday adventures for L, Lil, and Mom…even though that plan was somewhat foiled on Sunday. That all being said, we needed a…

    Diary of a Non-Cook: Easy Chicken Sour Cream Enchiladas

    Sour Cream, don’t judge me! The checker at Safeway sure did. It didn’t help that he was Mexican and a self-prescribed cook of his household. He saw the ingredients and said, “oooh, enchiladas!” To which I replied yes, but made the fatal mistake of telling him I was making “Easy Chicken Sour Cream Enchiladas,” to which he gave me a pretty gnarly look and laughed. He then questioned baking sour cream and told me, “good luck with that!” What a nice fella! What he doesn’t know is that I’m just a girl trying to get better in the kitchen. I still follow recipes to a ‘T’ and I’m okay with…

    #NailedIt – Thanksgiving Edition

    I’m bound to be successful one time, right? I can curate the hell out of something, but I’m just not that interested in cooking. But now that I’m considered an ‘adult’ I always ask what I can bring for any family event. They are nice and forgiving and always give me something fairly easy to ‘make’! This years option was a fruit plate or an appetizer. I said I’d bring fruit, but decided to bring an appetizer on my own free will. Tempting fate, I guess. I wanted something warm and gooey, the weather was begging for it. I went over to good ‘ol Pinterest and hit up my Finger Foods…

    Race Recap: Niello BMW Corporate Run 3.1

    Running with my clique! Niello BMW Corporate Run 3.1 And by the clique, I mean my awesome coworkers. 20 to be exact, well that was our squad for this race, but one fella didn’t actually run it. But I’m stoked that I was able to get 19 of my coworkers out to a 5k on a random Thursday evening. This was the inaugural race, so I wanted to be a part of it, as I do for any local first race. I read about it via a tweet from The Sacramento Business Journal. So, of course, I reached out and did some research. Then I beg and pleaded asked my…

    Thinking Out Loud – Happy Thoughts

    Loving my happy mood… Amanda at . RUNNING WITH SPOONS. I’m going to chalk it up to lady business and say that I was in a bad/ugly mood the last few days, but that has come and gone. Maybe its the endorphins from my workout this AM or my pizza hangover, but I’m in better spirits. So here goes my Thursday randomness ritual! Nailed It // I’m doing a 5K with my work tonight and I wanted to make my oversized shirt cute. Well, my ability to ‘nail it’ goes beyond food, apparently! Damn DIY, Pinterest, you got me AGAIN! Here’s where I found my inspiration gone wrong! So I…

    Rose & Thorn [33]

    Weekends are now synonymous with “long runs”… Rose: Celebrating my dativersary with J. Thorn: The bottom of my feet hurting, something crazy, after my long run…new pain! Friday  Game night with the soccer homies! I say soccer homies because most of us play soccer together, but we all also hang out outside of soccer too. After work, I went home to make my BLT dip for the party and also clean up the casa a bit. Just another case of the #NailedIt , but on a much smaller scale this time. I hate, no really hate mayo, so I found other ways to substitute it out. All of the ingredients…

    WIAW – I HATE Pinterest!

    #NailedIt Please let me explain before you stop reading. My hatred stems from its ability to give me  false hope that what I find on a stupid “board” will be easy to make. And also because the title tells me so! Psh, lies…all lies! I’m sure some of you readers will immediately gasp at my title of the blog today, but seriously…let’s be real! Pinterest is kinda dumb, but kind genius as well, which is probably why I despise it! Boards and pins, even more stuff social media stuff that I have to keep up with. Thanks, Jenn! Today’s WIAW is a little different that what Jenn had originally intended this link-up to be, but…
