Garlic Parmesan Top Knots

Sides, Snacks

How high-maintenance of a lady/dude are you?

I want us to talk make-up. Blush and eyeliner. Hairz routines. Eyelash curling situations (they’ll forever scare me). I want us to share!!! And be real life friends. And boyz (all two of you that read this blog), you too! What’s your haircut life like? How does it feel to just never have to worry about makeup? Freeing…?

Me, over here, I’m kind of easy breezy. I wear make-up pretty much everyday. But I only use, like, three things. And these few things have my loyalty probably for life. I’m gonna be 60 years old with this same routine, I have a feeling. If I’m going about my business during the day, I’ll throw on some concealer; mainly for under my eye balls. I have sleeping issues. I dunno. I hear lavender helps.

I rub some blush on for good measure. A little color makes people look like they aren’t dead. That’s a plus.

And a few swipes of the greatest mascara to have ever been created is a total must. I don’t leave the house without it. It’ll sometimes take me 10 minutes to put it on. I’m technical with it.

Every now and then I’ll put a swipe of liquid eyeliner on. It’s usually reserved when I wanna look cute. Like solidify the cuteness, you know?

Lipstick? Not for me…I don’t do it. I’m always drinking something, eating something, etc. Too high-maintenance for me. And plus, one of my greatest fears in life is to be the girl with lipstick on her teeth. Not cute. Eyeshadow? Nah…not really.

Now my nails…OMG…that’s a whole other post in of itself. Nail game has to be tight. Nail polish has a special place in my heart. You know this.

My hairz? Bangs. Straight…with a dab of this.

If I’m feeling really lazy, but want to fake like I tried, I totally do a top knot. Hair WAY up. And it being a little messy makes it cuter. It’s the 5 minute trick of tricks. I recommend it.

This recipe is inspired by my fake “I tried but didn’t” hair situation. These rolls are a hellavah lot more interesting than my hair…mainly because butter and carbs are involved.

Spicy Vegan Chili

Dinner, Soups

This is vegan chili:

…This is not:

That delicious dollop of sour cream is so powerful!! It changes EVERYTHING!

Chili is like cornbread. Rules exist about chili rights and wrongs. No beans. No this. No that. People are super picky and sentimental about the stuff. And, I mean…I get it. I do.

SO…

Before I begin, let me say this: If you’re from Texas, and this chili offends you, I’m sorry. I love everything Texas. I really do.

Friday Night Lights is the best show to ever grace our TV screens. (Yeah, I said it.)

I’ve been wanting to take a road trip to Marfa and sleep in one of those hipster tee-pees for I dunno how long.

Migas might be one of my favorite breakfast dishes ever…(next to pancakes, obvi).

And despite El Paso being the scariest city in the country, when I drive across Texas, I still pass through.

Zucchini Fries with Roasted Garlic Aioli and Sriracha Mayo

Appetizers, Dinner, Sides, Snacks

I realized something yesterday…

Making fries in various vegetable varieties is kind of my jam. I’m starting to think it’s my life calling to make fries out of just about anything…except potatoes. I have no interest in making French fries…I can just buy those from In-n-Out.

First there were Portobello Fries that I made for you, me…and Kate Moss.

Then…Avocado Fries. I mean…I’ve made them twice since Caroline originally posted them. Amazeballs.

Next there were Spicy Carrot Fries. And then…if I cut these pickles differently, they totally would’ve been pickle fries instead of pickle chips. But seriously, who cares. They were dipped in batter and fried. And then I ate like a hundred with a beer. End of story.

And now I give you these Zucchini Fries. With not one, but two dipping sauces!! Dipping sauces are important. Are you the type that has bbq sauces and hot sauces from fast food restaurants in your glove compartment?!

Yeah, me neither.

I roasted some garlic and made into an aioli. This was a good idea.

And Sriracha Mayonnaise. Ummmm…hello!!! It was delicious. You should do this.
