Pasta Masta: My Mom's OG Pasta Salad

My mom would always cook THE BEST foods growing up. From her Lemon Chicken to her Tomato + Spinach Whole Wheat Pasta + my all time favorite her OG Pasta Salad.  . Regardless of how her day was, she was always in the kitchen cooking dinner for my brother + I, talk about a rockstar. . Ever since I moved out, I have been trying to emulate her + her skills, making + baking my little heart out. For some reason it doesn't have that magic mom touch her meals would have, but I’m working on it, lol.  .

Forever Hungry: My Top Trader Joe's Eats

Yeah, I’m completely guilty of that. . Once I moved out of my parents + had to ‘fend for myself’ the grocery store seemed like the most daunting task known to man, aside from picking up dog shit, now that’s daunting. . The large grocery stores are my enemy, I get waaaay to overwhelmed + sidetracked with everything they have that I walk out forgetting just about everything except for strawberries, vodka, + sourdough bread. Thank god for Trader Joe’s. . Even...

Gone are the days when no one would ask, “are you feeling okay today,” all because I didn’t put on makeup, *sigh. (Please tell me I am not the only one falling victim to this).

So this post is for those of you like me, not wanting to spend 35 minutes in front of the mirror all to realize that your eyeliner is crooked. I have my...
