Day 1

Today wasn't horrible. I followed my plan and now I'm thinking about tomorrow. To make it simpler, I decided I am going to post end of day, on the actual day as it will make more sense 😛 Though I will say, I do my meal prep the day before AND I already know what my... Continue Reading →

Gangnam BBQ

Father's Day dinner was Korean BBQ. The best thing about going with my family is that mom usually orders everything and it's just a neverending supply of meat to grill.

Basic Mayonnaise

I love this recipe because, like all basic recipes, you can make it your own. When I make this normally I also add a ton of garlic a lemon juice. You will need either a blender, preferably a food processor. When you see how easy this is, you'll wonder why you ever bought mayo. Basic Mayonnaise... Continue Reading →
