Watermelon + Arugula Salad with Goat Cheese & Candied Pistachios

By Katrina Yoneda - September 04, 2017

I say this with 100% honesty… this recipe was a TOTAL nailed & failed it recipe all at the same time. It ended up; however, being a NAILED IT recipe once I tweaked it.

Here’s why: the recipe I used for the candied pistachios did not turn out at all, I really disliked the recipe I tried :( It was a little too gritty for my taste. But you gotta just keep on truckin’ until you get it right, right?! So I made it again & was back to loving the candied pistachio goodness.

We’ve all had those long & scorching beach or pool days where we completely neglected putting on sunscreen. Just straight up remembered… but did nothing to prevent the lobster burn. Your bad. That’s ok, I have something for that Coppertone sunburn.

These Ginsicles are sure to kick off your weekend juuuust right! I had a dear friend recommend I make these popsicles because we share a mutual love of baking & drinking. So obviously these popsicles were a no brainer! I got the recipe from Bon Appetit & let me tell you—NAILED IT! The recipe is insanely easy; the worst part was tracking down Juniper Berries. Liiiiike WHAT berries?!?! It turns out they are in the dried spice section at most grocery stores. I ordered mine off Amazon Prime because I’m just that lazy.

This will be a quick post because let’s face the facts; who actually likes to talk about shit?! Not I.

I’m going to tell you right now my husband has already put in an order with me for like 6 bottles of this miracle spray for his work *laughs*. He works with all dudes, -1 girl. Poor thing *shakes head*.

Natural Deodorant

Antiperspirants & deodorants… the topic is truly terrifying! This is going to be a long post, but it is worth the info my friend! You always hear that deodorant is better than antiperspirant; the truth is they are both NO BUENO. Aluminum & parabens are the two main buzzwords that you hear for posing the most threat to your health. However, there is at leeeeast 10 chemicals to stay away from when purchasing (if you must).

No Mayo Buffalo Tuna Lettuce Cups

By Katrina Yoneda - September 04, 2017

I’m not going to lie; I LOVE mayonnaise in my tuna. It was kind of devastating having to make the switch to “no mayo” tuna. Mayonnaise is so high in fat, saturated fat & also contains 50% of your daily recommended amount of sodium. DEPRESSING, am I right?! Girl, I get it! Once I made this recipe, however, I felt a little less sad about leaving the mayo out. That’s a promise!

Veggie Fajita Salad + Shrimp Skewers

By Katrina Yoneda - September 04, 2017

Let me tell you why I decided to make this salad tonight: it’s fast, easy & PACKED with flavor! Don’t let my long instructions fool you… I ramble.

I get a call from my mom today who decided that she unexpectedly wants to have a sleepover with my son. Do you know what this means to my husband & I?!?! We wanted to make a QUICK ass dinner so that we could get our comfys on & binge watch all the violent, crude ass shows we want!!!!!! This is something my husband & I rarely get to do so we are STOKED.
