meet.make.stud earrings.

Who would've thought that Home Depot would be our go to accessory store?! Probably not the marketing brand they are going for but for us DIY'ers, it's like being a kid in candy store.

meet.make.learn to crochet.

Our fabulous friend Ashleigh (a fellow Ladies Night-In guest) has been wanting to teach us to crochet for awhile, and what better place to learn then a sunny day in Beacon Hill Park. Take a dash of beautiful weather, and add in a new craft? Well you've got yourself a perfect afternoon!

Ode to Mom

Happy Mother's Day to all the lovely moms out there!

The three of us all live away from our mom's, and since we can't be there with them to celebrate in person, we wanted them to know just how much we love and appreciate them!

Oh So Healthy Snacks

Healthy snacks made easy... and unintentionally!

Steph and I just like food, any food, so kudos to us for making some healthy options this time around. Our usual go to is anything that involves a lot of butter, oil, and all the things they say you are suppose to keep minimal in your diet. Who are "they" anyways?! We tend to take after our Chef husbands... 

We wanted to see what all the hype was about kale chips, so we followed this Martha Stewart recipe.

Apparently kale is a super food. It's likely the amount of salt we added counteracted it's nutritious value but we had to compromise. They were heavenly! So quick and effortless to make. It may not be the most pretty or presentable dish but the taste makes up for it.

Next we tried out this chickpea recipe from cupcake project.

The chickpeas recipe combo seemed interesting with the cinnamon spice and we are always down for trying new things. One word - yum!!! Very addictive and a great alternative to nuts. Not a main course dish but a great party snack. Possibly an idea for Christmas holiday treats to giveaway... ? 

Have less than an hour to put together some tasters for guests and don't have much in your kitchen to work with? Kale chips and cinnamon chickpeas. Keep these two recipes handy!

Happy healthy-ish eating!
