Well here’s a little known fact about myself to chipper you up on your Thursday – I prefer/can only write a blog post when I’m listening to the Kygo station on Pandora. It has that perfect mix of vocals & instrumentals, inspiring me to get my deepest words out to the world! It can also take a turn for the worst & get me too emo, when I go back & read posts I can always tell. Ha!
TODAY is one of the best days for you guys because I’m forcing you to listen to me rave about these fucking incredible knives that I’ve ONLY cut my fingers on ONE time. And that may or may not been because I was under the influence.. of something other than wine.
ALL HAIL IKEA $2 KNIVES!
I’ve tried other knife sets & knives from different companies that claim they have the baddest, bestest, sharpest knives in the world! Not because I’ve owned many of them, but because I’ve gone to other homes & asked to use their knives. And as predicted, they fucking suck! They either have to be sharpened, be polished, or go through some other bull shit procedure in order to cut a tomato… BUT THESE IKEA BEAUTIES REQUIRE NOTHING BUT LOVE. And they slice through a tomato like butter! Are they the prettiest knives with their bright yellow & red handles? Depends if you like ketchup & mustard. I have no shame, I proudly set them at the table, especially with guests over. I’ve thrown out the other prettier knives Wafiq inherited, no more pretending Ikea knives aren’t the only things in our kitchen that matter.
I’m back w/a few other kitchen favorites! I’m all about trying new flavors, doing new things, and not getting too comfortable with -anything! Including food. I keep these 5 ingredients in my kitchen most of the time, and think it’s worth a try if you haven’t. Sometimes, when they’re sitting there starring at you, you’re more likely to make use of them. I might not cook w/these guys every day, but they’re common enough ingredients to keep around
Did You Know? “6% of U.S. consumers now claim to be vegan, up from just 1% in 2014.” ( v i a ) Shout out VEGGIES!!! You know what they say, you can’t change a guy? Don’t even try. Well folks, I’ve done it, I’ve changed Wafiq. From the guy that new the name of […]
Did You Know? Most of us are used to eating popcorn at the movie theater, but in parts of Columbia they snack on Ants. “Known in Spanish as ‘hormigas culonas,’ the brown, cockroach-size insects are roasted, salted and eaten like peanuts. Considered a delicacy, they can fetch more than 10 times the price per pound […]
Did You Know? When people cook most of their meals at home, they consume fewer carbohydrates, less sugar and less fat than those who cook less or not at all – even if they are not trying to lose weight ( v i a ) Hello hello! I have tons of wild rice in […]
Did you know? As little as 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon daily can have positive effects on blood sugar levels, digestion, immunity, and more. Stronger doses are also extremely beneficial for improving heart disease risk and cutting risk for diabetes, cancer, and neuro-degenerative diseases. ( v i a ) For those of you that are cold […]
Mmmmmm nothing like the feeling of Fall right around the corner, but before we leave August I have a couple favorites I’ve been enjoying & want to share. I’ll be carrying these products into the next few months to come. Under Eye Sheets: I’ve been trying a lot of eye pads. Recently, I used […]
F*** It. I love French Fries. Here’s the thing. I have an evil relationship with french fries. And for my first F*** It Friday post, I’m dedicating it to the potato. For my ENTIRE life I’ve been a potato fan. Maybe it’s the Midwest in me? Norwegian heritage?! I don’t know, but something has […]
One of my favorite places in the world is –> THE GROCERY STORE!!!!!!!! There are so many interesting ingredients in there, how do you not spend 3 hours inside each time you have to pick up eggs?! (<– Wafiq hates me) I’m always down to try new foods. Some ingredients I’ve happily added to my diet […]
