I pulled out the big guns for October in the Pretty Hungry 2015 Recipe Calendar for obvious reasons. (Because October is the best month there is. Duh.) This is the recipe I was most excited about in the whole calendar… which is saying something since this granola is pretty to-die-for. But this one was my baby. […]
Maybe this makes me a wimp, but I reeeeally can’t handle the heat when it comes to salsa. Medium is about as crazy as I get on the spiciness scale. So it comes as no surprise that I’m a big fan of salsas that incorporate fruity sweetness into the mix. Any mango salsa lovers out […]
~ Meet Miss February. This soup is Miss February in the 2015 Pretty/Hungry Recipe Calendar. Have you snagged your copy yet? Because it’s not too late. (Although it’s kinda too late since we’re two months into 2015… but what I mean is, it’s not too late for you to get a calendar if you want […]
~ You might recall a recent Facebook post in which I sheepishly confessed that I just now removed the pumpkins from my porch. (Yes, the ones I had out there to commemorate the Harvest season. Yep, it’s February.) I’m a mom of a 2-year old and a newborn, and I run two home businesses… what […]
I’m a major smoothie girl! And so is my little one. (Which is delightful to me because she considers smoothies to be a real treat and I’m happy to serve them up since they’re soooo good for her!) I’ve shared my Tropical Green Monster Smoothie with you before, and also my Post-Partum Super Smoothie. But […]
I don’t know if you all have noticed but it has been a LOOOONG time since I’ve posted an actual recipe here for you. The Kale Casserole doesn’t exactly count because I took those photographs about 3 months before our baby was born. Since Ava’s arrival, it’s been a whole different story. Lots of last […]
Hello and welcome to the 2nd edition of “Dear Carissa” – where I answer your questions about cooking, budgeting, wellness, and life! (Since I’m such an expert… NOT.) Actually the real reason for this series is that I wanted a way to answer your Frequently Asked Questions in one place so that others might benefit […]
~ Something very odd has happened to me lately… I’m am losing my desire for super-sugary sweets. What is going ON with me?!? It’s quite baffling. All of a sudden I cannot finish a pint of Ben & Jerry’s (which is unheard of!) Even my ongoing love-affair with Seasonal Reeses just isn’t burning as hotly […]
~ Hello there! Good news- We had our new baby just over a week ago and she is PERFECT, as you can clearly see from the photo above. If you want to see more little life moments like these, I’m on Instagram! And if you’re into birth stories, I wrote about Ava’s here and here. […]
Today, I am doing something I never do. I am interrupting the schedule of posts I had planned to bring you this week in order to give you this recipe. (Which for someone like me, who thrives on planning, making lists, and checking items off one by one… is a pretty big deal. Go ahead […]
Ok… so this is just one girl’s opinion (feel free to vehemently disagree with me)… but I believe it is nothing short of a sin, a travesty, and a crying shame to cook garden-fresh tomatoes! ~ ~ Was that a confusing statement? What I mean is that in my ever-so-humble opinion, there is only one […]
My husband works with some wonderful, wonderful people. And on Monday, those wonderful people hosted a double baby shower for him and another co-worker from his office (who happens to be due just a week before us!) We were so honored to be included in the festivities, and I, of course, had a hay-day photographing every detail of […]
This week I had the honor and privilege of speaking to a group of ladies about one of my favorite topics: Cutting Your Household Spending! ~ ~ Truth be told, I’m a bit of a budgeting nut. I actually find the challenge of a tight budget to be very rewarding and fun in itself (weird and […]
~ I have a major crush on a local establishment called the Old Mill Bread Co. Ever heard of it? Well, frankly, I curse the day I first learned about it, because I now find it very difficult to be content in life without Old Mill bread being a daily part of my diet. It’s just […]
This is the first post in the “Dear Carissa” series… wherein you (brilliant Pretty/Hungry readers) send in your questions about cooking, budgeting, wellness, and LIFE in general, and I answer them! I do not claim to have the “right” answers to any of these questions, mind you, these are merely my answers. This series began as […]
