Coffee Butter

Cooking with POTS & Pans / Uncategorized

Not coffee with butter in it (which is a thing), but butter with coffee in it.  My sister-in-law sent me the recipe one day and told me make it and let her know if it’s any good.  Sometimes she has me preview recipes for her.  I just wait until I have a good day with minimal symptoms and a bit of energy, then it’s go time. This recipe is from Tastingtable.com. My only real gripe […]

It’s rough times around these parts, lately. You see, SafeCo has this super fun little way to reduce your auto insurance.  We’re all about discounts.  It’s easy enough.  You just plug I a little tracker device into your car and it measures how safely you drive.  Meanwhile, you live your life and then suddenly remember and swear. It measures how many miles you drive, what time of day you drive (e.g. If you drive during […]

Welcome to Texas!  We’re in Dallas this week to meet Rachel’s family.  Wait! Doesn’t the family usually just meet the final two and don’t they usually meet on location?  I was confused too.  Rachel clarified for us that her sister is eight months pregnant, therefore the family will meet the final three guys in Dallas, then they’ll travel to Spain for overnight dates. Meeting the Family with Peter Peter is up first.  They start out […]

Baby, Write this Down

This message applies to anyone who is ever forgetful in any way. Whether you have brain fog, or you are just a normal, tired adult we can all use a reminder about ways to make life easier. My mom always had a notepad sitting on her desk and one by her nightstand. Why? Because sometimes the ‘3 am-can’t-sleep brain’ has great ideas. By 7 am, they have usually vanished. Several people have told me lately […]

Ok, we’re 9 minutes out from when the episode ended, so I’m still mad.  The feelings are fresh and raw and I’m cranky.  It was a two hour show tonight for four hometown dates.  The first three dates were in the first hour and the last date and four minute rose ceremony was the last hour, so I imagine I’ll be focusing my attention of this blog similarly. Date One: Baltimore, MD with Eric I […]

The world is full of adventure.  Perhaps you have a chronic illness, like me, and your days of adventuring might be on pause at the moment, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t find another to follow along with and enjoy! This Spring/Summer I followed a fun and unique adventure across America and I thought I would share my favorite points with y’all. Julian Redman, who went to the same high school as me, rode his custom-made […]

I guess this is Episode 7. The gang travels to Geneva, Switzerland because it too is the perfect place to fall in love.  Rachel comes to tell the guys that there will be 3 one-on-one dates this week and a three-on-one date.  There is a rose available on each date.  The four with roses will be receiving hometown dates next week. **Where is Chris Harrison?  Did he not come to Geneva? Is he secretly wanted […]

I’m a Fruit Girl, Not Like that Time I Memorized the Chiquita Banana Song for School

It’s official, y’all.  I’ve always told everyone that I don’t know how to work ‘fruit phones’ and other ‘fruit’ products–which was my code for Apple products.  I just never had one and never knew how to work one, which was why I was always an android girl. UNTIL… two days ago. We had some business for plan changing stuff at the Verizon store, which is my personal hell, btw.  It always takes so long.  In […]

Want to Pay Less for Your Prescriptions?

How much do you pay each month for your prescriptions?  If you’re like me, I’m guessing you don’t buy them and take them just for fun.  Most prescriptions are a necessity to keep yourself alive, healthy, conscious, etc. I happen to be double covered so my prescriptions are still a chunk of my income, but not anywhere near what many have to pay, or what I would have to pay if I didn’t have insurance.
