My Husband: The Chef

Mr. PattyCakes likes to cook. Unlike me, he is able to look in the fridge and randomly put shit together and come up with amazing restaurant-quality dishes. Every time. I am one lucky wife.

Let’s take tonight, for instance. We wanted chicken (slash, I had one thawed, and we needed to use it), and Patty wanted to work on his sauce-making skills. So I was instructed to get the heck out of the kitchen while he worked his magic. The outcome: a deliciously creamy sauce that went perfectly over lemon pepper chicken and deliciously fluffy couscous. Unfortunately, there are no pictures of this beautiful dish because we devoured it, but believe me: it was fantastic.

This has made the lightbulb go off in our heads. Why don’t we do a chopped challenge: I choose the random ingredients, and Patty cooks a delicious meal.



Feel free to help out with any suggestions. This is going to be fun!

In other news, today was day 2 of the Warrior 90 Day Challenge. So far, it is pretty easy, but I can feel it, and it gets my ass in motion….so that’s good!

I’m also in the need of a completely new wardrobe. I have no idea where to begin. But this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I look like I’ve stepped out of the beginning of an episode of What Not to Wear every day, but I’ve made so much progress on my weight loss journey. I’ll take it!

Until next time, folks!

Mrs. P


I am a 20 something focused on being a kickass mommy, fiance, cook, and worker-outer. I love everything about cooking (besides desserts, but I'm working on that), and I always try to make everything healthy. I live in Houston with my fiance PattyCakes, my son, The Bug, and my 2 puppies, Sir Reginald and Beaux. I absolutely love my family and would do anything for them. But I won't do that. I love crappy scary movies, disney movies, indie music, Hank III, classic rock, horribly childish jokes, naughty language, reading, Harry Potter, lifting weights, cooking, football, Nebraska, and being outdoors. I am getting married in May to the absolute love of my life. He is my greatest supporter in everything that I do, and my best friend and joke-provider. I lost a shit ton of weight a few years ago (193 down to 142 in 3 months) by eating healthy and doing P90X. I gained 25 pounds of that back, and am now working to get back down to a healthy weight using Weight Watchers and LiveFit. So far so good! So, read, enjoy, learn something, teach me something, and have fun!

  1. Ericka, I’m in! In my commitment to not waste food and use all my stuff before I go grocery shopping, I’ve come up with some pretty interesting meals! Mostly delicious, I’ve been told by my official taste tester, Katie Howard.
