the recipe progression.

well, saturday was the "chocolate chip graham cookie" experiment.

they turned out great! they taste similar to a chocolate chip cookie (but with way different ingredients!), but have a graham cracker aftertaste. 


monday night's meal: saucy pepper steak. 

first of all, i don't generally make's overwhelming for my system. but i LOVED this one. it was quick, easy, and delicious! very well received by the husband and will be added to my mental rolodex of meals! chaaa-ching.

similar to the picture, right? yeah. twas delish. highly recommended.

in other news, i thought i'd start instituting a little section of my blog called "steph's favorite things."

oprah's not the only one who can do it.

so, here are a few of my favorite things, to start it off...

1. do you ever battle to slice a pizza?

scissors make you touch the scalding hot piece of dough...

a roller hits the side of the pan (because i can't work a pizza stone... that's a topic for another day. i had a tragic experience once with dropping a piece of dough and still haven't bounced back)...

well, i have the answer!
 introducing, a random tool by food network! (i don't know what it's called...) picks things up, measures the length of things, and cuts things! it's an incredible tool that everyone should have. really.

2. P90X. i have been doing it, and my abs are firmer than ever! really. and i can't even do all the exercises. it's incredible!

3. this dog. get cuter. oh, wait. she can't. even though she's all up in our bed.

well, that's it for this episode. i know you'll be on the edge of your seat in anticipation. and don't worry... i already know one thing for the next favorite things. here's a hint: it's a cleaning supply. get excited.


  1. steph!! Can I get this recipe from you! It looks delish!!!


  2. you're killing me with this food.
    when i come home, make me THESE things. please no rice, beans, or tortillas.
    also- please let me borrow (or burn? legal?) p90x when i return? thankyouvarymuchsir. you're a gentleman and a scholar.
