For those nights you just really can’t deal

Listen up here, I know this title may be shocking to some of you as this is a blog about recipes, but we all have those moments that we are just too tired or bored with our go-to meals that we need a little help from the outsiders. Below are some suggestions for the times where we can’t be bothered with grocery lists, grocery store lines, and just the whole thinking of how and what to make.

Blue Apron First batter up is, Blue Apron – Their claim to fame is: “A better way to cook. Fresh ingredients, great recipes  delivered weekly to your home”.

PlatedOur second contender (by the way this is in no specific order, definitely not in terms of preference either) is Plated – which is similar to the above in that they want you to: “Cook something extraordinary tonight. Chef-designed recipes & fresh ingredients delivered to your door”.

Fresh 20Last is this little gem that I referenced in my weeknight dinner recipe. It somehow got buried in the rambling of my blog post, Fresh 20 – means shopping for 20 Ingredients in 20 Minutes to prep the entire week’s meals. It takes an hour at the start of your week to save you valuable time during busy weeknights.

I don’t want to hear any of you ever sigh and say “I just can’t”. Good food doesn’t have to be a pain in the butt. Get your A game on and check out one of these sites to help you eat well with minimal effort.

Happy Eating, XO.

And So the Damn Blog Begins!

Have you ever been watching the Food Network or Cooking Channel and thought, damn I can make that! (Although let’s face it most of the time they are using terms, tools, and ingredients we know nothing about). Well this happened to us one lazy Saturday morning. And so from our laziness and a few “damn that looks delish” moments our blog came about.

This blog is for the folks that are into food (cooking and eating alike) but who aren’t a chef by any stretch of the imagination. And let’s be honest, we all love food but, no one wants to come home and slave over dinner or worry over long grocery lists. “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”

Recipes can be so daunting you don’t even want to think of attempting to make something. So our rule of thumb is “if you can recite it, you can make it”. So go ahead – peruse our easy and short recipes. Try them out and tell us what you think. We’ll have editor notes discussing our experiences with the dish. It will include our thoughts on how to mix it up, how it looks or tastes and our overall DAMN that was good moments…

Click on any of the categories to the left for our damn delish recipes.

Or email us at to tell us about your experience with any of the recipes or to submit your own scrumptious recipes!

XO, Happy Eating.
