Heat has happened here.
Sun sure’s scorching.
Temperature topped triples today.
It’s #*$%ing hot out.
Which probably explains why I’ve been craving frosty milkshakes like it’s my J-O-B. Cold, cold milkshakes in a festival of fun flavors.

I may have mentioned that I like to run.
The truth is that I enjoy running – it’s the one time of day that I can decompress, filter my thoughts, and clear the cobwebs. And as with anything else, having the proper equipment on hand only makes things more fun.
Which is why I was so delighted to come across Albion Fit.
Albion Fit deals in women’s fitness, swimwear, and workout clothing, and, man, do they do it right. I was lucky enough to take their Mantra Yoga Pant and Love Racer tank for a spin; the pants have a lovely fold-down waist, notched hems, and a fabulous fit. I love them. But let me tell you about the tank.

Doesn’t it seem like there’s an expert on everything these days?
Snake handling experts!
I even tuned into the TODAY Show the other day and found Natalie and Savannah being schooled by a dishwasher loading expert! (At which point I questioned, for the 121st time, why I watch The Today Show!)
I have never climbed on a surf board, I generally try to avoid snakes and coupon clipping, and, as A. will most certainly confirm, I am far from an expert when it comes to loading my poor, put-upon dishwasher.
I am, however, a confirmed Nacho Expert, both in terms of preparation and consumption.
And today, I’d like to share some of my most expert tips with you.
Expert! Get ready!

Don’t forget, this is truth talk time…

If you stop by here with any regularity, you know that I generally like to keep things a little silly. Life can be challenging. Putting a healthy, thoughtful meal on the table for your family each and every day can be challenging. Which is why I think it’s so importantRead More →
Well look-uh here, finishing up Skillet Week right on Earth Day… it’s almost like someone, you know, got their planning on! I do find my skillet to be the most environmentally responsible tool that I have in my kitchen, mainly because it will last my lifetime and hopefullyRead More →
There really isn’t that much to say about this cobbler… Except maybe that it is the work of 1 humble skillet, 11 simple ingredients and 40 short minutes in the oven. Or perhaps that it’s the perfect vehicle for crisp, sweet, springtime apples, such as the lovely Pink LadyRead More →
Let’s face it: quesadillas are all kinds of messy. Which is why they’re the perfect candidate for skillet containment. You could bake your quesadillas on a baking sheet. Sure, you could do that. But let’s just sit for a spell, talking of skillets, and then see if youRead More →
Confession time: I love skillets. I love cooking in skillets. I love baking in skillets. I love broiling in skillets. I love wearing skillets as dangly earrings on date nights. Really? No. Maybe? Only every third one. The truth is that even before I got serious about cooking,Read More →
Beans really are a kind of magical fruit, aren’t they? Yes, magical in that way, silly goose! But since most of us aren’t 10 year old boys, we’re going to talk about the other ways that beans are magical today. Like how they’re filling! Like how they’re fibrous!Read More →

Loaded. Loaded, I tell you! I think there are two camps when it comes to carrot cake: (1) Just stick with the carrots. (2) Throw lots of other stuff in the mix and go absolutely nuts with it. I’m a go absolutely nuts with it person. For sure.Read More →
