Food Fails and #MonthOfSmoothies

The honest reason I haven’t been writing too often is because I am in a cooking slump. I cook and take tons of delicious pictures, only to have the meal fail at the last minute. Last week, I tried to make a braised balsamic eye round roast. When I checked the temperature, I thought the meat was going to be tender and magical.

It wasn’t.

You’re dealing with a perfectionist here. Please forgive me.

To top things off, I am so over winter. I want weather that produces delicious veggies that I don’t have to cook and inspires meals that don’t send you spiraling into a food coma.

When the new year came around, I decided to go the whole month of January without a single cheeseburger. This doesn’t sound that hard, but I work right next to a Wendy’s and a Five Guys. But I made it! I got my first burger of 2014 at Johnny Rockets.


What a freaking mouthgasm.

I needed another challenge for February, so I went with a month of smoothies for breakfast! I’ll be doing a recap each week of the smoothies I drank and how to make them. But, I’ll be documenting them every day on my Instagram!

So follow SarahRogers09. Search #monthofsmoothies in the hashtag search place. If you’re not already following me, you’re missing beautiful pictures of my weekend breakfasts at Emma’s…


Adorable pictures of Jerad’s niece that make you want to just eat her up…


And other yummy adventures, like Bon Me’s Friday night noodle bar.


Hopefully I’ll get my groove back soon, but for now you’ll have to enjoy my drinkable creations.
