Bridesmaids Boxes

Will You Be My Bridesmaid Boxes by OinKSoooo, in case you don’t follow me on Instagram, and since I’ve been SERIOUSLY neglecting this little blog of mine, I will share a little news…we’re engaged!!  I’m incredibly excited!  We are getting married March 28, 2015 and I’m very much looking forward to it!  Because we are having a somewhat small wedding (100 invites), our bridal party is small as well.  It includes my sister, Matt’s sister, and two of my closest girlfriends.

Now, I know this is a food blog, and yes, I will get back to food momentarily, but I just wanted to share a little DIY project that I did.  Continue reading

Baby Boy Stanley (Gender Reveal!)

Gender Reveal Cake from Order in the Kitchen

Welcome Baby Boy Stanley to the world!!!

Hello little one!  We are so happy that you are here! :)  My colleague, Laura, has just had her baby and thanks to my ridiculously poor blogging efforts, I failed to post the gender reveal party cake that I made for her many months ago when we first found out the gender of her little baby.  Here are the pictures from making the cake and the gender reveal party we had for her at work.  Now that you know it’s a boy, it may not be quite as secretive and exciting, but I had the best time making this cake!

Chicken Sausage and Peppers

OinK Chicken Sausage and Peppers

Oh em gee, y’all.  Cover your ears real quick because I’m about to toot my own horn (I know I’m ridiculously cheesy and lame but I can’t help myself).  I made a homerun tonight.  Matt loved it.  I mean LOVED.  Muggsy went totally crazy over not being able to have it (sorry muggs it has onions).  And I had to keep myself from going back for more, but packed some up to bring to work for lunch tomorrow.  It also had the added benefit of taking 30 minutes (and like 5 minutes hands-on time, which is usually all I take into consideration when I think about how long something is going to take).  Like it will literally take me longer to write this post than to make this meal.  It ALSO cost me like $3 per serving (maybe) thanks to my couponing (I’ll get into that later) Continue reading

Watcha gobbling about? Turkeys?

Roasted Turkey Breast

Sorry for the dork-fest post title, it’s just from one of my favorite shows, New Girl, which, if you don’t watch it already, you definitely should and it’s all available on Hulu.  So Matt and I were discussing how deli turkey just doesn’t cut it sometimes.  Sometimes you want the real thing.  And by real thing I mean the thing that you are normally only lucky to have once a year? Black Friday.  The perfect Turkey Sandwich with real turkey meat and not some processed sliced turkey sitting in water or some other liquid wrapped in a plastic container (and it won’t expire for like a month?? Weird).   Continue reading

Pressure Cooker Beef Stew

Pressure Cooker Beef Stew by OinK

Oh y’all I’m addicted…  I have a serious obsession with my pressure cooker.  I’ve been wanting one ever since I taught the pressure cooking class at Williams-Sonoma back in the fall!  I finally got myself one and I’m in love with it.  You can find one here.  I sincerely wish I had one of these to give away to you, because they are seriously amazing… Maybe Cuisinart will hear my plea, and offer one up but no pressure (LOL pun totally unintentional but awesome so I’m keeping it)

My One Year Blogiversary, Birthday and Housewarming! (How to Throw a Pinterest Housewarming Party!)

How to Throw a Pinterest Housewarming Party!

Hey y’all, it’s been awhile!  Last week and this week have been very exciting and busy!  I had my birthday last Thursday, our housewarming party on Saturday and today is my One Year Blogiversary!!!  I can’t believe that a year ago, I started this little old blog and began this awesome journey.  I’ve met so many incredible people and have made some great friends (some who I’ve even met in real life!)  I’ve loved it so much and I wish I was making something awesome to celebrate, but I have been dying to show y’all what I made for the housewarming and the cake I did for my birthday, so I think I’ll share that instead… I hope that’s okay with y’all :) Continue reading
