So I just got my Blendtec and she’s reaaaal beautiful. By far the best blender I’ve ever owned. It has a touch screen for gosh sakes. I’m surprised my phone is even a touch screen with my personal technology issues. I’m not exactly “with it” when it comes to technology. I’m thankful I have friends that know what’s going on or this blog would never function. Fact.

I plan on making ice cream in my Blendtec this weekend. It’s suppose to snow but I don’t care. I need what I need. And my needs include chili and ice cream right now.

I’m starting to feel more grown up as each month goes by. I’m still only 24 but our fridge is beginning to stack up with save-the-dates and wedding invitations. And well, that’s a grown up thing to do. And the weird thing is, most of those people are around my age. Weird, it’s just weird. I can’t even fathom planning a trip (I’m needing a tropical vaca soon) let alone planning a wedding at this young age. Cheers to those brave souls. Like my cousin. She’s one who is tying the knot soon. I’m in her wedding. I need to find teal wedges asap.

So guess what I’m going to start doing soon? Writing my second cookbook. Yes sir, I am. My first one hasn’t even come out yet, but I absolutely loved making the first one and I want the second one to be even better. Wait, you didn’t know I came out with my first cookbook? Well, that’s probably because you either don’t care, which is understandable, OR you haven’t seen it yet because it’s just on preorder. Yep, you can preorder my book right now and it will arrive at your doorstep come April. And who doesn’t love an unexpected present on your doorstep?! Am I right or am I right?! That’s why I HAVE to shop online so much. Presents at my doorstep make my world go round. Damn you modcloth. Damn you.

So if you’d like to purchase my first cookbook, you can do so here. You won’t regret it. Hopefully. It’s similar to my blog, with old recipes as well as never before seen new recipes. And it also has my obnoxious rants that have nothing to do with the food, just me wanting to be heard. #onlychildsyndrome. I’m going to start using that hashtag in every Twitter post I write. Which is one every 3 months. My twitter is exciting.

PS- this recipe is once again brought to you by my good friend Stacy. While I was out in California, she made me this green smoothie/drink. I thought I would hate it because it was only vegetables, but she proved me wrong. It was a smoothie that was super refreshing and paired perfectly with my sausage patties. Some people don’t like the idea of drinking their vegetables and I get it, but some people would rather do that. So I’m giving you the option. You’re welcome. Loveyousofreakingmuchyouvegetablelovers.

Prep time

Total time


  • 1 cup water
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • slice of fresh peeled ginger
  • ½ cucumber, peeled
  • handful of fresh parsley
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 2 sticks of kale, stems remove
  • ½ green banana (I used green so it was less sugary)
  • handful of ice

  1. Place all ingredients in your Blendtec (or other blender).
  2. Blend until completely pureed and smooth (there should be no clumps or pieces of vegetables to get in your teeth).
  3. Drink. I drink mine while consuming eggs, sausage, and avocado.
  4. Be merry because you got a good amount of veggies in your morning drink!
