Bug Porn

Maybe it’s the romantic ocean breezes here in California because I see things. Nasty things. There are things going on out here, in broad daylight, and they don’t even try to hide when I sneak up and yell, “Get a room!”I think this one needs a caption…

He loves me.

Look what I got for Valentine’s Day!

He loves me.

I know he does because…

1) He takes out the trash.

2) I went to the mall once without my wallet and he drove there and rendezvous’d with me in the parking lot, handed me my wallet, and drove home.

3) He’s not afraid of big spiders.

That’s all I need… and the chocolates.

A Valentine Treat

Raise your hand if you would like homemade chocolate cupcakes for Valentine’s Day. Now raise your other hand if you’d like them to be sinfully delicious but so healthy, you’re allowed to eat two. These are hands-down (get it? hands up – hands down!) the easiest and best chocolate cupcakes you can make. If you love someone, keep them healthy with this yummy homemade treat. I’ll be making a dozen for Denis… but I’ll tell him I only made six. 😉

Make my nachos for Superbowl

Do you spend Superbowl Sunday on the couch eating unhealthy snacks, watching guys in better shape than you play football? Is your fridge the only place you’ll ever see a 6-pack? Then you need to make my nachos this Sunday. These are not like any nachos you’ve ever had.

Look at the picture!  Mine are healthy and nutritious, crunchy and delicious. I won’t lie – they take a little work, but you won’t feel like an over-stuffed football by the second half… you won’t need a time out to take a nap… your waist band won’t snap from too many chicken wings… the sofa springs won’t be audible every time you sit down… you won’t need double coverage to hide your stomach… your stomach won’t hurt from having one turnover too many… your friends won’t be scrambling to get your heart started again… your trip to the bathroom won’t be third-and-long… I think I will cut back on these really bad jokes… but make sure you roll out my nachos… they are the bomb.
