Whole Wheat Gnocchi with Brown Butter and Sage Pumpkin Sauce

Whole wheat gnocchi with brown butter sage and pumpkin sauce is a deliciously creamy and nutty dish that is full of Fall flavors.

You guys. Do centipedes or bugs with 50 bajillion legs freak you the heck out and give you the heeby-jeebies? There was one on my wall yesterday and I screamed bloody murder. The look that Winston gave me was pure confusion.

It was the most disgusting little critter I ever did see. I didn’t know what to do. A million thoughts went through my head. I could’ve easily slammed a book on it but then I would’ve had to clean it up from the wall and I definitely didn’t want to do that. I couldn’t just leave it there though after I crushed it. I thought ok maybe I’ll put a cup over it and strategically maneuver it into the cup and put it on the floor and let Jason take care of it when he gets home, but I didn’t want any close interaction with that thing. I decided to then grab a shoe from downstairs. Right when I was about to slam the shoe on this guy, I turned to look at Winston and when I turned back around to do the deed, HE WAS GONE. LIKE VANISHED INTO THIN AIR. There was no trace of him whatsoever. I shook everything nearby to see if he’d come out and no, nothing. Omgggg.

It’s always nice to get away and come back rejuvenated and refreshed. I love traveling, too, because it…

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions


To say my brain is fried after three design meetings and countless paperwork and numbers would be a complete understatement. Building a custom home is a dream and it’s one of the most exhilarating things I’ve ever done but holy hell. It is A LOT of work. I honestly feel I’ve spent over 10 hours scouring paperwork after the design meetings. We’ve had a total of three design meetings clocking in at four hours each. Think about your house and then…

I’m so thankful that I had a three day weekend.

Yesterday, on our day off, we went into the design center again and finalized everything. Signed off on everything and confetti fell from the ceiling. Only, I wish that last bit…

My Kinda Caviar (Cowboy Caviar)

The most colorful salad you will have at your next party or barbecue! Cowboy caviar is like a mashup between salsa and beans. Salsa and beans had a baby and named it cowboy caviar because it's just so hearty and richly delicious!

I could never pinpoint the category of shows that I like to watch. I always knew I liked to watch suspenseful shows but I’m also totally into family type shows like Parenthood and This Is Us. My coworker told me about this detective show on Netflix about how a girl gets killed and they are trying to find out who the killer is. I mean, I know that sounds like the most basic detective show but I don’t know how…
