1. I was pretty excited to hear that Misty Copeland was made a principal dancer for the American Ballet Theater. Way to go Misty!

2. A New York Times recipe for guacamole with green peas sent shock waves through the food world this week. Apparently, some people were super mad. I’m not angry, but I probably won’t be adding green peas to my guac any time soon.

3. Have y’all been watching the second season of True Detective? Bud and I have. We went in with low expectations so we’re not super upset like many others. We’ll see if the show can hold our attention!

4. I’ve been searching for an ice cream recipe that doesn’t require an ice cream maker (not really ready to make that investment) and have only found a few quality recipes. Any suggestions?

5. Happy early 4th of July!!


Homemade Teriyaki Sauce


There’s something really enjoyable about making food from scratch. Over the history of this blog, I’ve shared homemade peanut butter, homemade hummus and homemade salsa (among a few other things). Something about the making process is really fun for me. It’s so satisfying to eat the product of your work. Typically, just a handful of ingredients create a wonderful, wholesome meal. Why buy something at the store when you can make it at home with ingredients you already have?

This teriyaki is the perfect example of just that. When I was planning our menu for the week, one of the recipes called for teriyaki sauce. Instead of adding teriyaki sauce to the grocery list, I decided to research a recipe for teriyaki sauce to see if I could make it at home. Turns out, the recipe was fairly simple and I already had all the necessary ingredients.

I hope you find making food at home as much as I do! Even more so, I hope this blog is a resource for you to find fun, accessible recipes that encourage you to make more at home.
