Nutella, Peanut Butter, and Strawberry-Stuffed French Toast Waffles

I’m a lover of all foods, but I’m a huge advocate of breakfast foods especially. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day after all!

Being a food fan, my Pinterest board and Bookmarked pages are filled with tons of food recipes that I always tell myself I will make.

I usually don’t have–or make– the time to try my hand in creating yummy foods, but when the urge to bake something crept up on me Monday evening, I decided to act on it (today is Wednesday. I’m a slacker).

I scanned my trillions of recipes to find something that would be beginner-level, yet still as delicious as a difficult recipe.

I came across French Press’s Nutella, peanut butter, and banana-stuffed French toast waffles. Yes, that is quite a mouthful to say.

3 Reasons to Love Mom Jeans

Your mother wears them, your aunt wears them, your teacher wears them on Casual Fridays, and now you wear them.

We’re talking about mom jeans. What once was a fashion uh-oh, is now a fashion ohhh-yesss.

A few weeks ago, I was a skinny jeans gal all the way.

Boyfriend jeans? Psh. Flared-out jeans? Nay. Mom jeans? Hell to the no.

…Until I tried on a pair of mom jeans and slide into a cozy, denim hug, one leg at a time.

Now I’m a believer in the mom jeans, and here are 3 reasons you need to snag yourself a pair right now.

 

1. Comfortable A.F. (as f**k, for you older mom jean rockers)

Mom jeans are probably the most comfortable jeans you will ever wear in your life, trust me. I’ve been wearing jeans for 22 whole years, so I know what I’m talkin’ about.

They are not too loose or too tight. They hug you around the waist just like a lover should. Also, they are also tight on the butt and the gut. 😉

2. They love babies!

Food babies, too. Did you kind of overdo it at the all-you-can-eat buffet? Yeah, we’ve all been there. But never fear, mom jeans are here!

Tuck that food baby into your high waist band and let your jeans rock that baby to sleep.

3.  Talk about trendy

Moms were totally ahead of the curve with this style staple (apparently), but we youngins had to touch it up.

Tuck a shirt into your jeans and BAM you have a classy and fashionable look going on..

Because mom jeans are essentially high-waisted jeans, crop tops are the perfect match for them.

The options are endless with mom jeans!

 

Now go to Forever 21 and make the best purchase of your life!

Did Myself a Flavor

Ever heard the phrase “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it”?
That is the phrase that came to mind as I broke a piece of a mango salsa Lay’s potato chip into my mouth. Mango salsa is just one of the four flavors that made it to the finals of the Do Us a Flavor contest.
Being a lover of snacks, I couldn’t resist trying all four flavors this weekend.
Below are my thoughts:

5 Ways To Celebrate International Beer Day

Tomorrow is International Beer Day!

Good excuse to get off work, right? Or at least a good excuse to bring a little fun to the office.

COOK IT UP

Not in the mood for sweets? Beer can still satisfy. Throwing beer into any recipe is a good idea, but I’m not sure if it gets any better than beer mac ‘n’ cheese.
