I Just Want It To Be Easy!!- Chicken Crescent Casserole

I haven't been blogging much lately. Too much life getting in the way. Too many things that just haven't gone right. Too many things that have just been... complicated.

Rugby is awesome, soccer is pretty damn … Continue reading Autumn Is Coming, Bringing Sports With It- Chili for Hot Dogs

Sigh. Summer sucks. So I've been trying to keep meals on the cool side of the spectrum. But I also know … Continue reading Summer Sucks XIII: No Panini Grill Required!- Pressed Sandwiches
