Plan Your Easiest Movie Night-2

Whenever I plan date nights or events with friends, I’m all about making things simple and relaxing when it comes to setup. I used to plan more elaborate get togethers and get SO tired by the time my guests arrived from all the planning, that I’d be ready to take a nap before all the fun even got started! I’ve learned since then that easier and uncomplicated are the way to go! Kyle and I have even started going on what we call “comfy date nights” every month, where we don our coziest sweatpants and sweaters, and go to a casual Mexican restaurant followed by a movie. He puts on his glasses, I take off my makeup, and we just relax! Those comfy date nights are always my favorite and I’ve come to realize how much more enjoyment you get from keeping things simple.

Crispy Green Beans with Garlic Dipping Sauce

For all you veggie haters/dislikers out there, this one is for you! I remember when I was younger, my mom used to make boiled brussels sprouts and they were just the worst thing (no offense, mom). Bitter, mushy, and soul-sucking. While that last one might be an exaggeration, I can distinctly remember wondering to myself…

Teriyaki Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I don’t think it’ll come to a surprise to anyone when I say that some of my favorite flavors are Japanese. Being half Japanese, I grew up eating traditional food at my obachan’s house each Friday night and my more adventurous palette definitely stemmed from eating octopus salads and raw fish on a weekly basis….
