The Laziest Recipes Ever: Blue Cheese Crostinis

This recipe is simple and straightforward,  both in preparation and in flavor.  As such,  I will spare you my usual ramblings and get right down to business.

The fact that it's 7 a.m. on a Saturday and I haven't had my coffee yet might also be partially to thank for my bluntness....

Blue Cheese Crostinis
•Good quality blue cheese
•Sliced and slightly crushed hazelnuts
•Baguette,  sliced into 2-bite rounds and lightly toasted

To each toasted round, add a few crumbles of blue cheese and a spinkling of hazelnuts. Drizzle a generous amount of honey over the top and be amazed by the flavor combination.

I'm not trying to fool you here,  people!  Something magical happens when you combine these simple ingredients.  Give it a try!

Spicy Rosa Chicken Pasta

I've come to realize that I've been getting a little....


Ugh. Everyone else gets skinny in the summer- they're out and about swimming,  playing beach volleyball,  rollerblading and what-have-you... and what am I doing?

I'm asking if I can get more butter for my sweet corn as I wipe BBQ sauce from my chin.
So I've started to try and do better.  Smoothies,  apples,  almonds,  and all that jazz.

But tonight I needed pasta.  White,  refined pasta.  No whole wheat this time around.  Just delicious noodles slathered in sauce.

Rosa sauce.

(For those unaware,  Rosa sauce is a mix of marinara and alfredo that has been personally stirred to perfection by the gods.)
