Caprese Stuffed Mushrooms

caprese stuffed mushrooms

Confession: I ventured into that room called the kitchen… Recently tasked with supplying the appetizer dish for supper, I wanted to try something new. I came upon this stuffed mushroom recipe, saw a short ingredient list and was sold. I’ll admit, I am not well versed in the kitchen. There is a lot of room for improvement but I’m making moves with this caprese stuffed mushroom recipe from Delish. First, check out this short ingredient list I was talking about: Ingredients 4 portobello mushrooms 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil 2 c. shredded mozzarella 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved 2 cloves garlic, […]

6 Gym Pet Peeves

Gym Pet Peeves

Confession: I Have Gym Pet Peeves I love my gym. I really do. It’s home turf and I love the people there. But there are some gym pet peeves that leave me shaking my head (and cussing under my breath). I do commend each and every person there putting in the work and try my hardest to smile and encourage, but when I’m struggling to overcome my morning zombie mode there are a few things I could do without. 1. A Bit Much Cologne or Perfume Let me preface by telling you about my terrible sense of smell. A blessing and a curse. I […]

I’m a Blogger, I think?

Becoming a Blogger

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Confession: I haven’t posted on my blog since 2015 So it’s been a hot minute since I’ve blogged on Confessions of a Meathead. Honestly, I had kind of forgot this existed until I got a reminder to renew my domain. And then I did, so here I am. In my perfect blog world way back when, I was going to be on top of this platform, posting frequently with beautiful photography.  I wanted to be witty and researched and well read. I would make new blogging friends who mentored and inspired and together we had the best collaborations. Unfortunately, I don’t live in […]

Confession: I’m Attempting To Bake A Healthy Dessert…

Baking Healthy Dessert

…And Not Burn The House Down. If only I could bake half as well as @Samantha_395 or create #foodporn worthy pics like @aflynn. But I’m trying and geek on healthy, tasty food blogs on the reg for healthy dessert recipes. I had to momentarily stop my healthy dessert geeking during bikini prep as it was entirely way too tempting but I saved some of my  favorites that I thought would ease me into my Betty Crocker role.  My first attempt comes courtesy of Miss K Kitchen Creations as I made her healthy dessert cookie dough and cream cup treats. (Recipe courtesy of Ingredients 1 Cookies N […]

Confession: I Survived Bikini Peak Week (Twice!)…

Bikini Peak Week

…Surprisingly, (my) bikini peak week wasn’t made of the horror stories or craziness you hear about. And for that I’m thankful!  As a first time bikini competitor I have never experienced a “peak week.” But the nerd in me did my research…and holy moly there is only about 78 different ways to go about it. Luckily, I have a rockin’ coach that has tried just about every which way and knows what will and won’t work. Like she said, you either are ready for the stage or you’re not. The end. I hear ya, so I just listened and am thankful I […]

Confession: My Mother Taught Me More Than I Know

Sorry Mom

…It may have taken years to admit but I have learned so much from my mom. I love my family. Each and every one of them with their weird quirks and all (some a little more so than others!). And I know I am completely blessed to have such a great family at that. As much as we really do just love and adore each other (adoration shown in various, often weird ways) we aren’t much for mushy words or tears and feelings aren’t always our thing. But on this Mother’s Say and a week past her birthday I think […]
