Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! How’s the morning going? I’m coming up for air after all of the celebrating we’ve been doing over here. We had the best time with the fam in town this weekend, and last night, I had our monthly wives’ meeting here at the house. It was a great night with sangria, enormous cheese boards,

beautiful cheese board

and the ridiculous little drink markers.

I made almost everything during the day so it would be ready to go. For dessert, we had crazy brownies:

Crazy brownies

(cookie dough on the bottom, Trader Joe-Joes in the middle, chocolate chip brownies on top. Layer and bake in a 9×13 dish at 350 for 35-40 minutes. I’m really glad I never made these while I was pregnant because the obsession would have been real.)

and the famous Kris Jenner lemon cake. I’ve heard Lauryn talk about this cake so often, and knew I wanted to give it a try. You guys. It was SO GOOD. And so ridiculously easy. I added a teaspoon of lemon zest to the batter, and it gave it a little extra somethin’. Definitely try it out for any upcoming holidays or get-togethers.

The bulk of dinner was catered from Birdie’s Market: teriyaki chicken and steak skewers

BBQ pork deviled eggs and regular deviled eggs.

I made a quick chopped salad (spinach, bell pepper, zucchini) and served it with Trader Joe’s carrot miso dressing (<— it’s by the salad greens and so good).

We also had this healthy and delicious vegan artichoke dip.

I used Kite Hill cream cheese style spread and it was dreamy. Here’s the recipe if you’d like to give it a whirl!

Vegan artichoke dip


Vegan Artichoke Dip


  • 3 cans (14 oz each) of artichoke hearts, drained
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil (or neutral oil)
  • 6 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 container of Kite Hill (or similar vegan) almond cream cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. In a food processor, chop the artichokes and garlic so they still have a bit of texture, but are small enough to scoop.
  3. Add the artichokes and garlic to a round baking dish, and stir in the oil, thyme, and oregano. Cover with foil, and bake for 35-45 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and stir in the lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Stir in the vegan cream cheese of choice.
  6. Serve with tortilla chips or pita chips!

    Can I PLEASE be invited to one of your girly events? I will even pay for my own flight!!!!

    Once again, you have raised the bar with all of your delicious snacks. The brownies that you made, weren’t they the ones that Jessica Simpson called “slutty brownies”? I made them once for work and all of a sudden had loads more friends than when I started the day with!!!!

    What do you all do at your monthly wives meeting? I would love to hear more about it, how you plan, what’s on the agenda, how you make sure to keep it going? I’m 36 with two kids and I work full time and finding friend time is always SO hard.

  4. Amber on April 11, 2018 at 1:39 pm

    I want those pulled pork loaded deviled eggs NOM! Also those brownies :-O

  5. Rhonda @ Change In Seconds on April 11, 2018 at 4:40 pm

    Can’t wait until I try the dip!

  6. Emmy on April 11, 2018 at 5:48 pm

    All of it looks delicious! I have to mention that the tortilla chips that are pictured with the artichoke dip look JUST like Cool Ranch Doritos– I’m just thinking how funny it would be if you served Doritos with the healthy vegan dip (no judgment if you did, it would probably taste amazing haha). 😀

  7. Janice O'Kane on April 11, 2018 at 6:46 pm

    Seriously, I want to come to one of your parties! You, of course, are amazing so there’s that – and the food always looks epically fantastic! 🙂 Definitely making the vegan artichoke dip and indulging in some Siete tortilla chips (read eating the whole bag)!

    Since you love spicy & cheese…def try the Cabot Habanero Cheddar….so, so good!!!

    My go to dessert is choc cupcakes with nutella buttercream….for dips…I’m still searching for a homemade option. For now, I love the Greek yogurt spinach dip from TJ’s.

    This looks so good! I love that you do have monthly get togethers. How do you keep them going? With kids and everything it gets tricky. My friends and I have tried this before and it seems to go bust after the second month or so. I would love to hear more about how you do it!

    • Fitnessista on April 14, 2018 at 10:31 pm

      we have them every month, but it’s slightly official because it’s all of the wives from the squadron. i would pick a set day (like the 3rd wednesday of every month) then everyone knows when to plan for it!

  11. Jessie on April 12, 2018 at 11:27 am

    Looked like such a fun girls’ night! The food looks amazing! Thanks for the recipe ideas

  12. Lisa @ Lisa 3D on April 12, 2018 at 1:33 pm

    I’m crazy about cheese boards, olives, artichokes and all kinds of savory bites, so this dip sounds like something I would love!

    • Fitnessista on April 14, 2018 at 10:29 pm

      please let me know if you give it a try!

  13. Gerald Washington on April 28, 2018 at 7:31 pm
