{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.

Your quarantine nickname is your current mood + the last thing you ate.

So please call me hungover cinnamon rolls 😆🤷🏼‍♀️ 

What’s yours?

Speaking of cinnamon rolls – You guys were VERY into the cinnamon roll recipe that I shared on stories yesterday morning. And since we don’t do anything very exciting on the weekends anymore, this seemed a little more fitting than the typical weekend notes.

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!

{dalgona coffee // whipped coffee}

Happy Monday friends! Hope you all had a wild weekend…ha! Just kidding.

Since not much happens on the weekends these days, weekend notes doesn’t have a place anymore.

We tie-dyed sweatshirts + made whipped coffee. Which you guys seem to be VERY into. So, I thought I’d share the recipe for the whipped coffee. It you’re a Tik Tok’er, then you’ve seen it a million times. That shit has going viral.

Basically the “it” drink at the moment.

If you want to see what all the hype is about, then you’ve got to try it out!

{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!
