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!

Five Things Friday: Favorite Foods Edition, Part I

Another week here and another gone by too fast! I don't really mind though. It was a great week, spring has sprung and I'm ready for a fun weekend with minimal plans.

Since I just did a Thursday Thoughts post, I thought maybe changing up the Five Things Friday with a theme might be fun. So without further ado, today I'm bringing you Five Things Friday: Favorite Foods Edition! I created this list on a whim...just the first five things that popped in my head. I'm sure this list could go on and on...but apparently these are the foods I'd want to be stuck on a desert island with!



Like these from the Lighthorse Tavern or my nice little lemon blueberry pancakes that can be whipped up at home.



I could devour an entire box in one sitting. No problem.



Ice Cream

Like this amazing, towering cup of ice cream from the Penn State Creamery that I enjoyed during THON Weekend.


Peanut Butter

Sigh. I could eat it anytime, anywhere. On a spoon, mixed into desserts, slathered on fruit. Peanut butter is good.


Just give me a cheese and crackers plate for dinner (with a glass of wine, of course) and I'm a happy girl. True story.


So...what would be on your list of five favorite foods?

Cheese, crackers and wine. That is all I need. :)

i'm totally with you on the cheese -- i could live on cheese alone!

I feel the same way about cereal. I think it's responsible for the three pounds I've put on. :)

Oh man! I COMPLETELY agree with you, except that I'd change pancakes to french toast and Cheerios to over-easy eggs.

I'm totally with you on cereal!! I could eat it any time. Same with ice cream - any time, any day. I have to add eggs to the list too. :)
