That is not the case for my Perfect Lemon […]

Super Bowl Round Up - Diary of a Formerly Fat Girl

It’s Super Bowl Weekend!!  Doesn’t matter if you’re a die-hard fan or a casual watcher, Super Bowl Sunday is pretty much a National holiday. Everyone likes a dead-of-winter excuse for chicken wings and beer and sitting on the couch. And while I can’t guarantee that your quarterback won’t get sacked or that your receivers won’t […]

Order jalapeno poppers at any local pub, and you’ll get balls of deep-fried weirdness and watered down marinara sauce. These, mercifully, are not that. Fresh roasted jalapenos give a great kick alongside a cheesy, mexican-style filling.
