7 Lunch Meal Prep Recipes

I keep two things in mind when I prepare my lunches on Sunday.  Is it easy and fast to make?  Will it taste as good on day 4 as it did on day 1?  That means that I might take short cuts to save time and use ingredients that will stand the test of time in the fridge. Today I’m sharing my recent lunches that I’ve made ahead of time on Sundays.  As a heads up, these recipes are not gourmet or exciting and they may even seem boring.  However, they work great for me and I hope that they will …

Mini M&M Cookies

Cookies are always a good idea.  If you read my blog you’ve probably heard me say that before. Last Sunday, I celebrated Greek Orthodox Easter.  There was SO much food and it was all so delicious.  Easter is my favorite holiday when it comes to food.  My mom makes traditional Greek dishes like pastitsio, spanakopita, lamb, potatoes, and tzatziki.  I’ve been known to make a pretty mean pastitsio and spanakopita, too.  😉 Tsoureki (Easter bread)  and koulourakia (Easter cookies) are two of my favorite things of all time.  All time.  I’m rationing out the last few kouralakia that my mom gave me to try to …

M&M Sugar Cookie Bars

Who has leftover Easter candy? We have a boat load of pastel colored M&Ms.  I don’t know exactly how much a boat load is but it sounds like a lot.  Last week I wanted a normal size bag of M&Ms but the grocery store only had the ginormous size available.  The only downside with having leftover candy is that I want to sneak an M&M (or a few) whenever I pass by the bowl of them on the kitchen counter.  Is that really a downside?  😉 My husband and I spent Easter day with his family.  I like to give …

How to Organize a Junk Draw

Here’s the second installment in my How to Organize series!  What’s it all about?  Click here to get the scoop and then come back for the scoop on how to deal with those pesky junk draws. I’m sure that everyone has a “junk drawer.”  You know, it’s the spot where you throw stuff because it doesn’t belong anywhere else. I am very neat and organized.  Very.  However, even I have a junk drawer.  Remember neat freak Monica from Friends and her secret closet?  That’s how I feel about my junk drawer.  I clean the junk drawer often but, mysteriously, it gets messy again …
