Lizzie, I love your enthusiasm! Keep it up! No one can name your blog better than you can. Just keep believing you can do it, not matter what "it" is. You have proven you have the wherewithal - you've graduated college and have a job! If you love to write and cook, just start a blog and get going. Don't over-think it. At a minimum it will be a great record of your cooking journey and something for you to share with your family and friends. Good luck!

I love hangman!!

1 Day in Boston Lunch & Dinner Rec?

All morning, my husband and I have been trying to figure out the name of the place we had pho when we were in Boston last time. It was so delicious! We finally figured out it was http://www.yelp.com/biz/pho-vietnam-restaurant-boston but sadly, they have closed!!!

And yes, Legal Seafood definitely has a lot of tourists. But I just don't think you can beat their clam chowder and their free rolls!!! :-) We have one in ATL where we live and every once in a while we go there for some for lunch. I still say it's a check list kind of place at least once in it's hometown. Boston is awesome. Have a blast whatever you end up doing.

After Dinner Games, Got One We Should Be Playing?

Oops, hit enter too quickly. The Farkle game sits on a cake stand that I keep on the kitchen dining table along with s&p and honey.

This is not a made up game, but we love Farkle!

Creative Chip Alternatives

So many great suggestions y'all!!! Thank you so much!!

After Dinner Games, Got One We Should Be Playing?

When the kids were little (three of them) we played Sock Wars. I'd keep a basket of the clean socks from the laundry and instead of matching them and folding them up, everyone would sit in a circle and the socks would be dumped in the center. When I said GO!, everyone would start picking up socks and throw them at the person to whom they belonged until all of them were out of the pile! Then we'd each fold up our own and eventually put them up. Now, I SWEAR we ALL loved this game! No matter how many times we played it, we'd all be laughing our heads off! It was a great way to make a chore fun and to end the day on a positive note.

Creative Chip Alternatives

All of these suggestions are making me so hungry!! :-) I was thinking more along the lines of eating salsa because it's so low cal and low fat (and low Weight Watchers points:-) which is what I'm doing!) and endive works great because it's a scoop and salsa is well, runny.

@nygiants122 - thanks!! I will try it and I'll let you know. I like kale but have never had it like that.

National Margarita Day!

Well, lately I've been drinking Bob's. My husband and I are doing Weight Watchers and have lost 70 lbs each! WOOHOO! http://www.bajabob.com/ (Am I allowed to mention all these companies? I don't know but I can assure you, I don't receive compensation for doing so!! LOL! Definitely the other way around!)

National Margarita Day!

Best margarita recipe?

Best Banana Cream Pie in NYC!

I need your help! I have to find the best Banana Cream Pie in NYC! Today is National Banana Cream Pie Day and my friend Carlos, who lives in NYC, has just informed me he's never had any! That's just wrong. Please help him.

Creative Chip Alternatives

I need some ideas. Hit me (I've been reading Urban Dictionary, can you tell?)!! I've been eating salsa with endive and endive does make a great chip! But there must be come other similar veggies out there that I haven't considered? (No, I'm not a vegetarian although I have nothing at all against them. I'm not gluten free and I do dearly love tortilla chips. But I gots to lose me a few more pounds and veggies are free!!)

Rimmed Baking Sheets

I buy cheap rimmed baking sheets and they rust so I buy expensive rimmed baking sheets and they rust too. What the heck am I doing wrong here? Surely there must be rimmed baking sheets that don't rust?
