Friday Favorites

I hope you are all staying warm (if you’re an East Coaster). I hope the wine is flowing and your boo is close by.

If you’re in need of a refresh and have some time to stop by Sephora this weekend, pick up some travel size overnight sleep masks.

At just $4 a mask with approximately 3-4 uses a package, it’s a great travel buddy or night time spa treatment for your face. In the morning, your skin feels fresh and rejuvenated.


The mask itself comes in a small container with a fold back lid. After your first use, just reseal the lid with cling wrap. Yes, it’s a little annoying, but it’s only $4 so that was easy to get over.

Now your face is fresh and feeling fancy. You can go downstairs and make your signif the breakfast sandwich of champions.


Take a piece of bread of your choice and cut a small circle in the middle and lightly butter both sides of the bread.


After you heat a slightly greased pan, place the pieces of bread in the pan. Crack an egg into each one of the circles. Let cook for 3 minutes.




On one slice, add sliced avocado and sliced goat cheese.


Cover and cook for 3 minutes. Flip over one more time just to get some extra melting going on for the goat cheese.

Plate and enjoy. The egg yolk will be runny and in my opinion, you can never go wrong with avocado and/or goat cheese. #amIright

I hope your Valentine’s Day is filled with snuggling. Either with your boo or with a nice bottle of vino.


Music Crush Monday

Music Crush Monday

It’s a snowy, windy, icy kind of Monday. That can only mean one thing; dance the hell out of your work day.


Ellie Goulding’s new work is everything to me right now. She’s giving me that upbeat feel that I need. Here are my absolute favorites:

Also, Monday wouldn’t be right if I didn’t share my major accomplishment over the weekend. I found/perfected/mastered a gluten free pizza crust. I will never make my own dough again and I will never buy a frozen pizza again. JD’s gluten free pizza dough is my all time favorite. Find it at your local Whole Foods or Stop N Shop.


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. If you have a pizza stone, put the stone in now and let it heat up for 30 minutes.

Bring the stone out and place it on a pot holder. Place the dough on the stone and with luke warm water, carefully press the dough out until you have a 13 inch circle. Dust the dough with corn meal.

Place the stone back into the oven and cook for 5 minutes, or until slightly browned around the edges.

Bring the stone back out and layer the pizza with whatever you want! I layered one with pesto, turkey sausage, spinach, raw onion, tomato, and mozz. Another one I made with a tomato sauce, turkey sausage, tomato, and mozz.

Place the stone back into the oven and cook for 15-17 minutes or until the cheese starts to brown.

Pull it out and enjoy!


Homemade pizza pairs well with a nice couple of glasses of Pinot Noir, an all pajama kind of day, a movie marathon including Bridge of Spies (SO GOOD, btw), and watching the QUEEN rock it at that Superbowl concert. #amIright
