    Bachelor in Paradise: FINALE + Falling for Smythe

    September 9, 2014 • 10:00 am

    OMGGGGG we have finally reached the END of Bachelor in Paradise!!! What did all of you think of the final episode...and the ultimatum that Chris Harrison gave everyone?!?! I'm really glad that Michelle talked to Graham about AshLee...I know AshLee had her heart set on making it work with Graham, but he wasn't 100% in it, and that was pretty obvious. 

    It was sooooo adorable when Michelle called her little girl to ask for advice! What a sweet, smart girl you have, my love!!!! And ahhhhh, I'm SOOO happy for you!!!! It's so great to hear that you are happy and now have someone who treats you the way you deserve to be treated!

    Lacey and Marcus were pretty much a given to have a great time on their fantasy suite date...they are CRAZY about each other and are clearly in love! 

    I do feel sorry for Sarah...she deserves someone amazing, and it's unfortunate that she was turned down by Robert on their fantasy suite date :( WHYYYY did he say yes to the date if he wasn't into it?! And yes to staying in paradise with Sarah?!?!?! What's this guy's problem????

    I'm REALLY proud of Sarah for confronting Robert and asking him why he acted the way he did. She didn't feel loved, beautiful, wanted, or happy in that moment, and those are the MOST important feelings you should feel. Robert acted like he didn't do ANYTHING wrong, and didn't realize what he did! I mean...how could he not know what he did...he went to sleep with jeans on and pushed Sarah away!!!!!! It's almost as if he put on a face for TV and his feelings for Sarah weren't real. I don't know...what do you guys think?! Poor Sarah :(

    Awwww it was great to see a few of the good Bachelor fam to talk to the remaining couples!!!! So good to see my good friends Molly and Jason too!!!! I LOVED Cody's speech, he has proven that he is such a sweet, genuine guy :) Michelle did an amazing job describing how happy Cody makes her...she's been waiting to find an amazing guy like him to show her dedication, kindness, respect, admiration and LOVE!!!!! Ahhh so happy for you both!!! 

    OMGGGGGGG Marcus!! Look at that Neil Lane bling!!! I swear I don't read any spoilers, so I had NOO idea this was coming!!! His speech was sooo awesome, and the two of them are such an amazing couple together; they're such a great match!!!!! I wish you two the best of luck with your happy ever after!!!!! Oh man...I'm feeling gushy and teary eyed after watching this!

    Ok ok enough gushy love talk!! Onto fashion love!!!!!! As we transition into Fall, I can't help but fall for my new 10x10 Smythe jacket!!!! It's the perfect fall blazer to pair with plaid, tweed, leather, and EVERYTHING in between!!!! To make things even more exciting, Smythe has just celebrated their 10 year anniversary, with their new 10x10 collection, and I couldn't be happier for them!!!

    Food Friday Flashback: Southwestern Pasta

    September 5, 2014 • 10:00 am

    I haven't shared a pasta recipe in a VERY long time...and this one HAS to be one of my all time favourites, so I'm sharing it with all of you once again!!! Justin and I LOVE the mix of smoky and fiery flavours in this dish, balanced with the smooth, refreshing avocados - it is divine!

    Ingredients

    2 cups of fusili pasta (or gf pasta) 
    1 tbs butter (or coconut oil)
    1.5 cups of milk
    2 tbs of chili powder
    1 tsp of salt 
    1 egg
    1 tbs of flour 
    1 tbs of lime zest 
    juice from 1/2 lime 
    3/4 cup of plain tomato pasta sauce 
    3/4 cup of jalipino gouda cheese (grated)

    1/2 cup of chopped asparagus 
    1 tsp of olive oil 
    1/2 cup of bbq’d chicken breast, cooled & diced 
    1 chopped avocado
    1/2 can of black beans
    1/2 diced red onion
    handful of chopped cilantro 

    NOTE: This recipe requires 3 stove top pots/sauce pans.
    1. For boiling the pasta
    2. For the Sauce
    3. For the veg/stuffing of this pasta.

    Directions

    1. Boil 2 cups of  fusili pasta ( We used a gluten free pasta and it turned out great! I prefer the quinoa gf pasta as it emulates real pasta the best).

    2. In a medium sauce pan, melt 1 tbs of butter (or coconut oil if you are on a health kick) 
    add 1 cups of 1% milk. In a little cup, break ONE egg, add remaining 1/2 cup of milk & flour & whisk together until smooth. Add this mixture to pot and bring to a low boil while whisking add lime zest & chili powder, mixing as much as possible while continuing to whisk, your sauce should be slowly thickening. Add tomato sauce and then SLOWLY add grated cheese while whisking. At the end, add salt & lime juice SLOWLY while whisking
    sauce should be complete, set aside and whisk every so often.

    3. In a separate pan, on low, warm up onion in a tsp of olive oil. Add asparagus & chicken until asparagus is warmed up. Add beans (you don’t want to over cook these items, just warm them up until asparagus is al dente).

    4. Add pasta to bowl, pour chill cream sauce over, add chicken mixture, top with a squeeze of lime, cilantro & avocado…ARRRRIIIBBAA…ENJOY!
