Pantry Raid: Mushroom Barley Soup

I am kicking off my list of 2015 foodie resolutions right with one of the pantry raid recipes that I promised. This one comes from last week, after we realized that the #snowmageddon was not going to be all it was cracked up to be but nonetheless could use something warm to eat, since it was still very cold outside. This recipe is healthy and doesn't require a lot of ingredients, making it a perfect recipe for using up pantry and fridge staples. Cooking guidelines are approximate, since I found ...

Let’s just get a jump-start on 2015, ok?

Funny that, 11 months ago, I just finished writing about how I was completely absent from blogging for a majority of 2013. As it turns out, my track record in 2014 wasn't much better. A solid two posts? Winning.

Between starting a new job, visiting three states that I never previously visited, and continuing to work on my MBA, 2013 was quite an eventful, if not decent, year. Since it has been sufficiently long enough since I posted anything worth reading, I’ll share the who, what, where, and ... Continue Reading

In a nutshell…

In a nutshell? This has been the story of my life for just shy of two years: via "Marketoonist"... highly recommended if you need more laughs in your life. Hopefully that will change in the near future, though, as my current job winds to a close. That's right. I'm closing another chapter very soon and moving on to different things. I'm not going to say "new and better things" just yet, since who knows what the future truly holds in store for us and I don't want to jinx it; ... Continue Reading

Back to school? ¡Sí se puede!

So, as if four years of college coursework and commuting wasn't enough torture for a lifetime, I went back for some more. My first ever graduate-level class started last week. For the next 14 weeks, I will be commuting down to school, right after work, for a Tuesday night class from 6:30-9:30pm. Here's where the fun begins. Electroshock Torture 101 Have you seen the price of gas recently? Hovering around $4/gal for regular? If I was Sunoco or Exxon, I would look into installing coin operated ... Continue Reading
