DIY crunch wrap supreme
You might’ve noticed that I’ve been on a little bit of a blog hiatus, but don’t worry… Yo’ bish is back! You see, I took a little vacay because a lot of awesome shit happened and I wanted to just live life off the computer for a lil bit. I turned 31, my boyfriend turned 31, and most importantly, WE GOT A BRAND NEW NOODLY LITTLE BBY DACHSHUND PUPPY! All of this celebrating and puppy-obsessing had me a little off course but whatever, that’s the beauty of a blog, right? You get to run it on YOUR OWN TERMS!
So what has been going on in my life? Well….. The boyfriend and I just happened to be born 5 days apart. And no, I’m not slightly cougar-ing, he is definitely 5 days older than me. To celebrate, I threw him a big tiki party and made a bunch of tasty asian-ish food. There were little banh mi sliders stabbed with bby umbrellas, larb gai lettuce wraps, pho deviled eggs, curry chicken and sweet potato empanadas, and some other random stuff that I forgot about already. I also got him a piñata and stuffed it full of candy and bby bottles of booze because that’s what you do when you’re old, right? Continue reading
Before I moved back home to Florida, I was dead-set on heading west to California. I had been totes over New York for quite a while but was afraid to move because I thought everywhere else would be boring. As for California, well, it just seemed ideal. The people were like-minded, super eco-conscious and progressive, one of my favorite ways to chill was actually recreationally legal, New York winters didn’t exist there, and most importantly — there were In-n-Out Burgers.
As an East Coast gal, In-n-Out was one of those things that I yearned for. Not being able to get it on the reg only made me want it more. I dreamt about their burgers dripping with animal sauce goodness, crispy fresh-cut fries smothered in cheese sauce and topped hot peppers, and a perfectly spun milkshake in my hand. But nah, for some reason, somebody decided to keep it a West Coast thing. And I will never forgive them for that. **insert devil eyes** Continue reading

I won’t deny that at the time, summers in NYC seemed like the best thing ever. It probably had to do with the fact that we all appreciated it so much more after coming out of almost 6 terrible months of potential frostbite. But that’s not to say that the rest of the country isn’t scoring big off of the shifting seasons. You see, there are a few things that New Yorkers are missing out on that are far more awesome than a really good Instagram shot of a hotdog positioned in front of the city’s skyline.
Down here in the South (and everywhere else that’s not surrounded by skyscrapers) we have yards! Yards that can be filled with awesome cooking equipment without the fear of it falling 10 stories to its demise. Instead of climbing up sketchy fire escapes or wasting time on DIY levees to help transport your $30 no-name grill up to the rooftop, I now rejoice with my feet safely on the ground, which just so happens to be manicured and solely dedicated to grilling and growing. And I totally am bragging right now but I have to say that my summers outside the city are so much better because of my new fav cooking tool – the Big Green Egg®! Continue reading
