    Just bought some Chai Rooibos tea last night at World Market…hope it is as delicious as your tea sounds! [Although I think I have a nut butter problem–well, I KNOW I have a nut butter problem–because when I read that tea description all I could think was “What if I combined my Chai Nutty Butter with my Apple Pie Peanut Butter???]

    Good eats!  I STILL have not tried spaghetti squash (I know, where have I BEEN)!  I love that you just dumped some sauce and cheese in there though and called it a day… I think that is enough to tempt me to try it out next week :)

    Those perogis look amazing!  Also, I know I’m going to have to give that savory cheese cake a try.  What a great idea.

    Hehe its a big-deal football game in the states. The commercials they show during it area always hilarious so I love watching those eating/talking/partying during the game. Unless my team is playing — then I pay attention πŸ˜‰ Love ya chickadee!

  5. says

    I’m so glad you have a recipe for tzatziki – my favourite Greek dip to pair with spanakopitas! Mmm the best! And I’m a huge perogie fan too, so yay! I will hereby declare them healthy because a nutritionist eats them too haha. xx

  6. says

    mmmm spanakopitas make my heart sing! I might make some this week — the craving has started!!!

    and if you bake the perogis at 400F in a toaster oven they get all crispy and flaky on the outside and then fluffy inside… its glorious! and b/c you didn’t fry them, its the equivalent of pasta and potatoes so, pair a few with veggies or soup and heck yes it’s a healthy balanced meal!

    omg so I thought of you at the store the other day — saw those new mini almond joy M&M-like bites and almost had to buy them! Then I saw how much dye they put in them. Shame on them — ruining a good thing!!! lol

    Haha i’m trying to get her to start up something — she had an all natural beauty company for a little while and then got bored. Maybe tea is text! πŸ˜‰

    Teavanna has really great blends and she mixes a number of those to make the tea taste like apple pie – check them out — awesome company! <3

    Hi Jenn.  Just found your blog via some WIAW posts today.  You are amazing, there are so many links…thank you so much, I look forward to checking them, and YOUR site out!!!  Have a wonderful Wed.

    Love your photo layout.  What photo editing software do you use to get the collage?  I keep intending to link up to WIAW but can not remember to photograph what I eat!  Next week…

  11. says

    Getting the hang of the first wiaw is always the hardest – then its smooth sailing! <3 I use Picnik for the collages but they are shutting down the website in April. Google+ should have some of their photo edits available to use as well but I haven’t checked it out yet! Photobucket also has some really cool photo-editing tools for free =) Hope that helps! xoxo

  12. says

    I still (STILL) have yet to try spaghetti squash…when is it even in season??

    Those pizza cups look good!  I saw something similar that used fish taco filling instead of pizza filling…it seems the possibilities are endless!

    Have a great week friend! :-)

    I looove that you always drink Kombucha. I haven’t had it in so long, I need some in my life! Happy Wednesday!

  14. says

    Your “want to” Superbowl eats all look DELISH! I wish the Superbowl was on Saturday, so I can recover on Sunday…Sheesh! Hope you are having a wonderful day and thanks always for hosting pretty lady! :)

  15. says

    Hi Jenn!  Haha sorry about just the breakfast recipe!! I meant to post more but the whole day I got busy with picking up my altered wedding gown, wedding registry, everything! πŸ˜›  I hope you’re having a great day~~

  16. Maria says

    I need to get on this.  I’ve been meaning to do a WIAW post for a long time but I keep forgetting! I’m putting it in my calendar for next week :-) 

  17. says

    Mmmm, I LOVE perogis! I haven’t had them since sometime last summer. We used to get them all the time when I was growing up and I still to this day insist on dipping them in honey mustard!

    Ugh, I was totally drooling over those butternut fries the other day…I may just have to go to the store this weekend and buy me a squash…although there will be no super bowling for me this year. Bad planner, Heather! Guess I’ll just catch up on all the commercials online on Monday like I did last year! :)
