{lazy lasagna}

What’s for din, friends? I haven’t posted a recipe is a bit. And since this one has been highly requested since I gave a sneak peek on Instagram stories, I thought today was a good day!

The absolute easiest lasagna recipe to date! Layered up with the most delicious flavors + so incredibly cozy and comforting. Even when it’s 100 degrees out!

This recipe is old school. I think the very first time I ever had lazy lasagna was when my grandpa’s wife, Lois, make it for a holiday? It was honestly yearrrsss ago. Just like traditional lasagna, there are so many ways to sneak in veggies. Make it a little lighter. You can really add anything you like and it will still be amazing. Almost anything.

HAPPY FRIDAY friends. How are we doing? Hanging in there?

I am excited for a lazy Friday night. This week was very emotional for not only myself, but most of my people. So, I am ready to take it easy. Relax. Enjoy!

Years ago, I started this ritual (thanks to my girl friend Sara) where I start to clean the house on Thursday evenings and finish things up on Friday morning. That way we’re chore-free on the weekends. This has been especially nice lately… life-changing, actually. Ha! Waking up to a clean space on the weekend is so refreshing. Highly recommend! I do all my grocery shopping. Wash my car. Fill my gas tank. I hustle, but it’s 100% worth it come Friday evening.

Today’s agenda includes pizza + comfies at home. And I cannot wait!

I hope you have a good one, too!

I hope the weather is nice for my trip to Puerto Backyard🌴 getting tired of Cabo San Living room 🏡

I was originally going to share Vacation + Easter dresses today, but since our Cabo trip is postponed + Easter is canceled, thought a cocktail recipe was a little more “essential” at the moment.

{bay bakes // chocolate chip cookie bars}

Sweet. Salty. Chocolaty. Shall I keep going?

If you’re working on your quarantine bod too, I got a good one for you. Really, Bay has a good one for you!

In the last week or so there is one thing I’ve become very good at, taste testing! Ha! And these bars get my stamp of delicious approval.

Is it possible that baking cookies into the form of bars actually makes them taste better? I think Bay might be on to something here!

Hi friends. Shit is just so weird right now. Still going through all the emotions. Stressed. Sad. Pissed off – that I can’t easily get the basics. Not trying to hoard, just need some necessities. Scared of the un-fucking-known. Happy to have more slow time.

Lets all remember to spread kindness. The world needs that shit right now!

Intentions for the Week:

  • Create a new habit – they say it take 2 weeks, and I’ve got that!
  • Stay healthy
  • Find fun ways to move my body without going to the gym
  • Take Charlie for lots of walks
  • Keep a positive mind
  • KonMari my closet
  • Master at-home mani + pedi’s
  • Come up with a tequila + emergen-C cocktail
  • Only purchase what we actually need
  • Work on my skincare

And since I think we all have extra slow time, I rounded up THE best board games. I read the reviews. Did some homework. Gathered a great selection of games all available on Amazon, so you don’t need to leave the house.

{pf chang’s lettuce wraps}

Happy Hump Day friends! I’m trying my best to be peppy AF, but to be honest – I’m not feeling it. Politics. Coronavirus. Nashville. It’s just kinda sad, you know what I mean? And I gave up beer + wine, so I can’t even self medicate (my favorite way) at the end of the day.

Since I don’t have much to say – let’s keep it short + sweet! How about a bomb ass recipe?

If you had to choose between being skinny or eating tacos. Would you choose crunchy or soft tacos 🌮🤔

Or Taco Bell 😆 I’m telling you a Taco Bell on the beach is good for the soul 🌊 add it to you summer to-do list!

It’s been a while since I shared a good ol Taco Tuesday recipe. I’ve kinda switched gears and Tuesday have become a regular Target sharing day. But, I tried out a new recipe last week and….

HIT it straight out of the ballpark. With help of the ever so talented, Half Baked Harvest. This recipe was adapted from her oven baked tacos. I just switched it up a bit to make them a little more xoxo stacyb….and a lot less ingredients!
