st. patrick's day mint chocolate trifle, dessert, brownie and oreo trifle

So my oven broke last week just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. I know what you’re thinking perfect timing. But after over analyzing my failed ombre cake this weekend I decided not to let it get to me. I decided to follow the advice of two of the wisest guys I know and just let […]

One of my girlfriends had a birthday party last night and I’m proud to say I stayed out, in a bar, well past 2 a.m. I know my after-hours-attending, late-night-eating 21 year-old self is laughing right now as she reads that statement but she’s just going to have to deal with the fact that we’re […]

A Halloween Hangover

Happy day after Halloween to you all! If you have children, I hope you didn’t steal too much of their candy last night “for the sake of their health.” For those of you that did, I suggest a supervised withdrawal action plan that involves adding a Snickers bar to each meal to avoid crashes throughout the […]

Remember when I used to post recipes? You know, actual recipes of real food. Between the juicing and the travel, I’ve been on a bit of a cooking hiatus. And I’ve been informed as of late that not everyone is a fan of my juice cleanse posts. So fortunately for all of you the cleanse […]

Relax, I’m not married. But even if I were, it’s likely I’d still be having this affair. Fortunately it relates to food. And before you stick your head in the gutter, let me be clear that I’m simply referring to my love affair with scones. No food fetishes here ladies and gentlemen. Ah, scones. My […]

I love stumbling across new and interesting people through Instagram or other social networks and getting immersed in their lives, even for just a few moments.

Blueberry Tea Cake

I must admit, my baking has been somewhat of a bust as of late. Last week I attempted a “healthy” oatmeal, banana, raisin cookie and it failed miserably. I was missing one of the ingredients and tried to make it work, and well, let’s just say it was intern level at best. I can’t promise […]

St Patrick’s Day has always been highly regarded in my family. How could it not be? With Murphy as your surname you learned at a young age: The lyrics to MacNamara’s Band Everything can be dyed green with the proper amount of food coloring-even chicken salad. Wearing green underwear will not win you the tiebreaker […]

What Finn Ate Wednesday

In light of recent events, I decided to dedicate this What I ate Wednesday to my pup. After all, he’s ingested more interesting stuff than I have this week. Except maybe that delicious antipasto at Coco Pazzo, or the leftover roasted beet salad and quinoa from my Sunday post. Oh, and snickerdoodle dip. But more […]
