Bobby Pins & Bullets / Cooking with POTS & Pans / Uncategorized

If you watched my latest live video on Chronic Illness on the Mighty’s Facebook page, then you might have heard me mention sex coffee.  Basically this is just a delicious drink that supports and enhances sex drive. First off, I didn’t make this recipe, I found it on yourtango.com The ingredients each have a component to increase sexual desire and libido.  The secret ingredient is an adaptogenic herb, Maca, which is an Aztec root known […]

Black Bean Patties; Step-by-Step

Cooking with POTS & Pans / Uncategorized

This recipe is based off of the Pioneer Woman’s Black Bean Burger recipe, but I have modified it a bit.  In this house, Tom doesn’t prefer when I call something by a name that it isn’t and I don’t blame him.  I can’t stand when someone says pizza, and then in small print they mention that it’s a cauliflower crust or some other nonsense. For instance, there is no such thing as ‘veggie lasagna’.  He doesn’t […]

Bucket List Buche De Noel

Cooking with POTS & Pans

I first learned about a Yule Log cake, or a Buche De Noel in French, when I was in high school and taking French class.  We used to eat one for our French class Christmas party each year.  I took French one, two, and three so that’s three years of Buche De Noel.  Since then, I’ve always wanted to make one myself. The history of the yule log cake goes back to before the medieval era.  According […]

Tom is strict about when Eggnog is allowed in the house.  You see, it doesn’t matter when it is available in the stores.  I started seeing it before Halloween, but it’s not technically allowed in the house until December 1st, but occasionally around Thanksgiving he’ll allow it. Now that it is officially legal to have it in the house, it’s time for Eggnog everything. I woke up today feeling not amazing and not excited about the […]

Like there is any other way to spend time with Funfetti… Anyways, thank God for Sally and her baking addiction.  If you aren’t familiar there is a wonderful blog out there called Sally’s Baking Addiction. This morning Carter and I made funfetti donuts.  Daddy is sleeping after working all night so it seemed like a nice quiet activity.  Plus, donuts. These are super simple and easy.  I’m gonna say they are moderately healthy compared to other […]

Cinnamon Roll Scones

Cooking with POTS & Pans

I made these yesterday.  My current fear is that someone might hook me up to a lie detector and ask how many I’ve eaten. I don’t generally condone a non-triangular scone.  I prefer them to be that shape, however I have spent time traveling in the land of scones (England and Ireland) and well, they usually are not triangular. This particular scone is a very sticky mess and would not be much fun to try […]

Easy One Dish Dinner

Last night I tried something new for dinner and I’m a fan.  Because I’m a good person, when I find something delicious and easy to throw together, I share it with all of you good people. First things first: while you’re drinking your morning coffee, take some chicken out of the freezer. Next, check your fridge for veggies.  If you come up empty, resort to the cupboards. I happened to have broccoli and peppers in my […]

I done made my very own recipe, folks. It’s true.  This was my first time really experimenting on my own with varying ingredients and trying to keep health somewhat in mind.  It turned out edible.  Not just edible, but delicious and filling. Each scone is about 282 calories, which I know seems high, but they each have 7 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber.  I’ve been trying to focus more on calories that […]

Who recognizes those lyrics? Movin’ to the country, gonna eat me a lot of peaches.  Millions of peaches, peaches for me.  Millions of peaches, peaches for free.  -from the song ‘Peaches’ by the Presidents of the United States of America.  I don’t know how that became a popular song, but during a stage of my life, it was. In our case, we don’t have a peach tree yet, so peaches are not free.  My parents […]
