I’ve discussed my crazy, unhealthy, infatuation obsession with Brit Brit many times on the blog (probably too much) and honestly have never missed one of her concerts to date, so you can bet I wasn’t missing her Vegas tour! I planned this trip with two of my sorority sisters along with their hubbies for four full days of living it up in Sin City. It’s also been WAY too long since I’ve had a vacation so this was much-needed.

Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams Jeni Britton Bauer Before Jeni began making ice creams, she studied art at The Ohio State University, worked in a bakery, and had a serious hobby blending perfumes and collecting essential oils.

Healthy Baked Pesto Rigatoni I have this thing called green foodsession and it’s not going away. Last month when Bjork was putting together the income report, I accused him of choosing all green photos for the cover image. People don’t want to see all that green on there, babe.

Midnight Jam Lady, Daytime Food Fiend Cooking a whole salmon Salmon is usually quite expensive here, but not if you buy it as a whole fish. It’s huge, of course - anywhere from 2.5kg to 5kg - so the challenge then is two-fold: how do you portion and store it well, and how many ways can you cook it so you never get bored eating salmon? We’ve taken to buying it whole once a month whenever we come across really fresh salmon at the supermarket.

Vegan Caramelized Onion Mac n Cheese The minute I discovered you can make queso without cashews, I was convinced cashew-less mac ‘n’ cheese had to happen. Eggplant cheese sauce seriously knows no bounds. I’ve made vegan mac ‘n’ cheese before using a cashew-based sauce and it really was amazing!
