Hi, I'm Rachel.

A few years ago I could barely boil water.

True story.

Determined to be a kick ass wife, I developed a love for football and learned to cook in my tiny Jersey City kitchen. I spend my days working in Manhattan, my nights and weekends chasing after a rambunctious toddler, and the hours in between cooking with my husband and feeding my TV habit...oh, and I blog about it all!

The Weekend.

This weekend flew by in an instant, as it usually tends to do. I feel like we packed in a whole bunch of things and so here's just a little peak into the weekend dish!

We ate pizza. You can never go wrong with this on a Friday evening.

We watched Fringe on Friday evening. Man I love this show. I have a feeling it will not be back next season, so I'm trying to soak it up while it lasts!

I got a haircut. Nothing too drastic. Just a nice shortening and thinning. I like it a lot. Thanks to The Art of Hair for an affordable, solid haircut!

I met my new cousin. So adorable and tiny!

We ran a 5K with our friends. The race was organized by my great friend Kristen. It was a fantastic race for a great cause. I forgot to snap a photo, but here's one from last year's...

I napped. This almost never happens.

I watched The Notebook. Ah this movie. It's been such a long time since I've seen it and when I came across it on ABC Family while Shaun was watching basketball, I couldn't help but get sucked in. It was just as good as ever. It never gets old.

I listened to the Ghost soundtrack! Ah full blown obsession commencing...

I watched like 6 episodes of Pioneer Woman. I'm starting to really enjoy this show. I would never make most of her dishes because they are unnecessarily butter-laden, but I enjoy her creative eats and living on a ranch just looks like fun.


I realized that Easter is in 2 weeks! Fun. I love Easter! I can't wait to get in the kitchen and make up some fun eats, like my Peepza Pie from last year. You can also find these and many other Peeps recipes on Love From the Oven today.


So that was my weekend. I crammed in quite a lot, didn't I? I can't believe Monday is already here. Let's make it a great week, shall we?

How did you spend your weekend? Share some highlights!

Sounds like a perfect weekend! I feel like mine flew and am definitely moving slow this morning!

Love pizza on the weekends! I had a pretty low-key weekend with a visit to the beach and a baby shower on Saturday!

I'm glad you had a good weekend - congrats on the 5k! I think that is a great distance, and perfect for spring runs!

I used to watch Fringe, but I stopped halfway through the second season and haven't caught back up yet - I love Joshua Jackson though. I think it is my Dawson's Creek addiction that makes me a sucker for anything he's in!

<333 Joshua Jackson in anything :) Can never get enough of him!

the pioneer woman is growing on me. I mean I love her and her cookbooks and blog but on TV I have had to grow to like it! Anyway- sounds like you had a great weekend!

that pizza looks incredible! sounds like you had a fabulous weekend! i spent mine spending lots of quality time with the husband + enjoying the gorgeous weather. not too shabby! =)

Um...after reading through comments, I'm fairly certain I need to get into Fringe immediately. I had the biggest high school crush on Joshua Jackson ever.

I fell in love with the Pioneer Woman when I started reading her blog. I love the show too, even though I no longer have the Food Network :(. I've made a few of her dishes and I lighten them up sometimes (grape/olive oil instead of butter *when it won't ruin the taste*, and half and half instead of heavy cream). So far, they've tasted great!
