A Series of Unfortunate Events came out on Netflix, so you can catch me binge watching that. Growing up, I would fly through those books. They were one of my favorite series in grammar school. Plus, all Netflix shows are phenomenal. I am 4 episodes […]

Ground Turkey and Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash

Ok, I’ve never ever had acorn squash at all. Not to pat myself on the back, but I’m patting, this stuffed acorn squash was really good, and a great way to try acorn squash for the first time. All squash is on sale, cause it […]
