A new twist on the classic lemon asparagus will leave your mouth watering with this Roasted Lemon Asparagus with Cranberries & Feta.
lemon + asparagus + cranberries + feta cheese = where have you been all of my life??
Also something that has been missing from my life: a really good vacuum that sucks. And by sucks I mean actually effectively sucks the dirt and crud out of my carpet.
For the past four years of our marriage we have been using the one we registered for and received as a wedding gift. We really had no idea where to start when we were registering for wedding gifts. The vacuum we asked for was j u n k. We just recently replaced it and my mind is BLOWN at how much dirt this new vacuum is picking up, and I want to cry at the thought of how much the old one was NOT picking up.
How were we living in all of that filth for the past four years?! Nasty nasty nasty.
I wish I could go back in time and tell my pre-wed self to register for different, better vacuum. I also wish I’d considered a second set of silverware since now we are faced with the choice of giving up the set we’ve had since our wedding day, or living with mis-matched silverware since they stopped making the set we have.
I get emails all the time from people asking what kind of cookware I recommend, many of them about to invest in their first set of pots, pans, and bakeware. I have tried a bunch of different brands and there are only a couple that I highly recommend with confidence. Circulon® is one that I do trust and whenever I suggest their pans to someone I tell them that these are pans that you can trust to hold up through the wear and tear of cooking and baking for a family for years to come.
I’ve had to toss out a few pans over the years and not a single one has been a Circulon pan (and I’m pretty hard on my cookware, when you cook 5-6 days a week they get used a lot.) Also, I’m kind of obsessed with how non-stick-y my Circulon pans are. Every single pan in the store seems to say “non-stick” on the box but I swear they are not all created equal. Sometimes I don’t even bother greasing my Circulon pans because they are honest-to-goodness made to not stick.
Love. that. so. much.
If you are getting hitched soon, first of all congrats!! I’m happy for you and the lucky guy/gal. Secondly, please do yourself a favor and register at Macy’s, Kohls, or Target where you can register for Circulon cookware. Your 4-year married self will thank you. Unlike the current version of me that is regretting that sucky-non-sucky vacuum we’ve been putting up with for our entire marriage.
If you’re not getting married anytime soon and have no need to register for cookware, I am giving away a Circulon pan set today!! YES! Enter below by leaving a comment telling me what kind of recipes YOU want to see this summer. Ice cream? No bake treats? Grilling? Tell me!
