  2. Just bought some Chai Rooibos tea last night at World Market...hope it is as delicious as your tea sounds! [Although I think I have a nut butter problem--well, I KNOW I have a nut butter problem--because when I read that tea description all I could think was "What if I combined my Chai Nutty Butter with my Apple Pie Peanut Butter???]

  6. Good eats!  I STILL have not tried spaghetti squash (I know, where have I BEEN)!  I love that you just dumped some sauce and cheese in there though and called it a day... I think that is enough to tempt me to try it out next week :)

  7. I want to eat all of that Sunday, too! Yummy eats!

  13. Hehe its a big-deal football game in the states. The commercials they show during it area always hilarious so I love watching those eating/talking/partying during the game. Unless my team is playing -- then I pay attention ;) Love ya chickadee!

  14. I'm laughing at Emma's comment below.  Superbowl's are made for FOOD and funny commercials!  Can I join you?!

  15. I'm so glad you have a recipe for tzatziki - my favourite Greek dip to pair with spanakopitas! Mmm the best! And I'm a huge perogie fan too, so yay! I will hereby declare them healthy because a nutritionist eats them too haha. xx

    ReplyDelete
  16. mmmm spanakopitas make my heart sing! I might make some this week -- the craving has started!!!

    and if you bake the perogis at 400F in a toaster oven they get all crispy and flaky on the outside and then fluffy inside... its glorious! and b/c you didn't fry them, its the equivalent of pasta and potatoes so, pair a few with veggies or soup and heck yes it's a healthy balanced meal!

  22. Haha i'm trying to get her to start up something -- she had an all natural beauty company for a little while and then got bored. Maybe tea is text! ;)

    Teavanna has really great blends and she mixes a number of those to make the tea taste like apple pie - check them out -- awesome company! <3

  23. ahh we need to protest then! come on almond joy, get it natural please. ;-)

  25. Ya know in all my years stalking TJ's I've never had that quiche.
    Love the idea of the tomato sauce directly in the squash...
    Annnnnd LOVE TJ's PB pretzels... addictive!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Aside from my homemade spinach quiche.... this one is by far the second best i've ever had -- totally try it darlin! and pick me up a few while you're there? =)

  27. Love your photo layout.  What photo editing software do you use to get the collage?  I keep intending to link up to WIAW but can not remember to photograph what I eat!  Next week...

    ReplyDelete
  28. Getting the hang of the first wiaw is always the hardest - then its smooth sailing! <3 I use Picnik for the collages but they are shutting down the website in April. Google+ should have some of their photo edits available to use as well but I haven't checked it out yet! Photobucket also has some really cool photo-editing tools for free =) Hope that helps! xoxo

  29. I still (STILL) have yet to try spaghetti squash...when is it even in season??

    Those pizza cups look good!  I saw something similar that used fish taco filling instead of pizza filling...it seems the possibilities are endless!

    Have a great week friend! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Right now darlin'! Peak season is Fall-Winter [though its avail year round] Get on it! =)

    It's not healthy.... but its perfection! no restaurant has ever topped this pie in my eyes... and P's dad has a key lime tree I'm going to raid this year b/c it is over the top outstanding with fresh juice!

  47. Mmmm, I LOVE perogis! I haven't had them since sometime last summer. We used to get them all the time when I was growing up and I still to this day insist on dipping them in honey mustard!

    Ugh, I was totally drooling over those butternut fries the other day...I may just have to go to the store this weekend and buy me a squash...although there will be no super bowling for me this year. Bad planner, Heather! Guess I'll just catch up on all the commercials online on Monday like I did last year! :)
