Now this is a story all about how
My leftovers got flipped-turned upside down
And I’d like to take a minute, just sit on your throne
I’ll tell you how I made them into a soup called minestrone!
Just call me the Fresh Princess of Soup. Or call me a nerd. Either way, we both get to call this soup delicious.

Clafoutis! Ohhh lala.
It sounds so French! It sounds so fancy!! It sounds… so…
But that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Well, except the French part. It is

And for the record (SPOILER ALERT!) I’m also not Oprah.
But I have favorite things toooooooo! Continue reading Coley’s Favorite Things: A holiday gift guide for the coolest people you know.
What’s not to love about a holiday completely dedicated to eating?
It’s the best! Thanksgiving makes me feel some type of way.

As if you need an excuse. Continue reading Waffles with Maple Brown Butter
