Grub…Lately x2

Hi. It’s been a while. Way too long. I apologize. Life happens. But I’m back! I’ve got some great things headed your way, however, I just wanted to give you a little “what I’ve been eating” update. I hope that someday, when I’m older, I’ll look back on these posts and go, “That was a…

Grub…Lately

I am still here. I still live. I’m still eating! What is it about summer that makes me: 1) not want to be on or near the computer 2) eat anything besides fruit, ice cream, and cheese and crackers 3) wish I had a pool Oh, right. Because it’s summer! Happy DAY! Besides the fact that…

Mediterranean/Mexican lunch wrap

When I’m out for lunch, the last thing I would ever choose to order is a wrap. Honestly, I’m not really a wrap kinda gal. I prefer a sandwich. But this, my friends, this is a wrap I will easily make again because 1) the ingredients are all delicious 2) it took me about 3…

Giant Rainbow Cookies

What do you like to do when it rains? Read a book? Take a nap? Go out in the rain? It’s supposed to rain all weekend round these parts, so check your weather. If it’s rainy for you, you should most definitely not nap, please put down your book, do stay in your slippers, and…

3 Easy & Delicious Smoothies

One of my favorite, go-to, breakfasts lately has been smoothies. Honestly, you can pretty much throw any fruit in a blender with a few other things and call it a smoothie, but there are a couple of ingredients that are key to a delicious and easy liquid breakfast. These are a few of my favorite…

Yes, Kansas City, Missouri and also Kansas. “Why did you go to Kansas City, Quinn?” Oh, gee, thank you for asking! Jerrod and I took a much needed mini vacation to eat,…

Life is Busy but There’s Always Food

March and April have been the busiest months of my life, ever. That’s actually not true, but it’s kind of true. They’ve been rough, but May is near! May will bring time in the kitchen, meals outside every single day, adventures, and change. I’m ready. Bring it on, life. I don’t have a single recipe…

Lemon Chicken Spaghetti

Saturday! Didn’t this week feel really long? Every day this week, around 2:00, I was itching to get home from work and be outside. It’s that time of year where the thought of sitting inside all day makes me sad. Even if I’m just sitting on our deck, I’m a happy lady. You know what…

Strawberry Margarita Punch

As I sit here drinking my peppermint tea, I really wish I was drinking a margarita next to a beach with the sun beating down on me. Unfortunately, I live in the central part of the Midwest and am a several hour plane ride away from said beach. Sigh. To make up for a lack…

ramblin’ with quinn: one

Things I don’t understand: – How my refrigerator goes from being incredibly full to being basically empty so dang quickly. Besides the essentials (almond milk, eggs, cheese, condiments, yogurt, Hy-Vee bacon lover’s ham, bacon, and beer…), I really only have nothing. I cry. And that’s a lie. I have other things – I have some…
