Oven-Baked Goat Cheese Green Chile Queso

I have a little something for you. It’s melty, cheesy, and has turkey bacon. All you need is a chip (or like, 200) and life is good. Whenever we have friends over, I spend a little while planning my appetizer game. Even though I grew up around Mexican food, Mexican appetizers aren’t my forte. Ok,…

don’t make me go

I feel like all of my post titles for the next 9 months or so could be some version of “keep me here forever” haha. How was your weekend, friends? Hope you had a great one. Ours was magical, and definitely reminded us of our first couple of months here. We did a lot of…

Goat cheese, beet and jalapeño flatbread

This is my healthier at-home version of our beloved Bo-Beau Kitchen flatbread: goat cheese, beet and jalapeño. AKA three things you wouldn’t really think to put together. But, it’s so right. The component that helps bring everything together is a sweet onion-tomato spread. To make this, all I did was heat one large diced sweet…

Sur La Table dinner at home

Nothing like a Tuesday night fancypants (yet easy!) dinner after a hot barre class. (Hot barre! Not to be confused with the Whole Foods meal, but equally delicious and a rare form of workout torture/triumph.) Ok, and wine too 🙂 Even though it was a little lonely preparing this meal by myself instead of with…

Banana split smoothie

Hi! Happy Wednesday to ya 🙂 How’s the day going so far? This week has already been a lot of fun. I took Livi to her yoga class and we planted some herbs in the garden. I might eat my words later, but I feel like you really have to work to kill plants here.…

It finally happened

Today, I finally felt like I LIVE here. I thought it would happen quite a while ago, especially with resuming the usual to-dos and chores, but nope. It still felt like vacation, even when I had a mountain of laundry to tackle and bags of groceries to put away. It comes with the novelty of…

11/22: Friday Faves

-An amazing party with amazing friends.  (My neck is doing something intense haha) Last night was my little “see ya, later” party, which came at the perfect time because worksickness kicked in a little this week. The shenanigans of the locker room were the best ever, and something I miss the most. The hostess with…

10/25: Friday faves

Hi friends! Let’s all do the Friday dance! Or the piñata dance? I’m just now getting a chance to get to the computer, since Livi and I had to rush on base early this morning. I had to get some blood work done, and since kids are no longer allowed in the base clinic (so…
