Royalty in Reality’s Best of Fall 2017 List

Looking at my calendar and weather app, it’s the third week of October and it was 90 degrees this past Saturday (thank you global warming). Despite these summer-like temperatures, it is indeed fall and we should all be anticipating cooler temps. Truth be told, we’ve had a few cooler temp days sprinkled in here and there and I’ve immediately pulled out my booties. While I hate the fact that the days have gotten shorter, I’m ready for all things fall! I figured as a blogger it was my duty to make sure all of my Royals were ready for the temperature drop, because let’s be real it could happen tomorrow, and share the things I’m deeming “the best of fall 2017”. From fashion to recipes to things to do, prepare for me to unload all things fall! (more…)

Easy Summer Recipe – Shrimp Foil Packets

I remember when The Boy and I first moved in together, I was bending over backwards trying to cook health meals every night. My attempt to be healthy meant LOTS of baked meals, which was basically torture during the warm summer months. Grilling is the perfect way to enjoy healthy meals without heating the entire house, but truth be told I don’t know the first thing about grilling. Lucky for me, The Boy has become a bit of a grill master and since he handles the hard stuff (getting the fire/heat just right), I can focus on what’s actually going ON the grill. Over the weekend, I decided to try my hand at grilled shrimp foil packets. They ended up coming out really well considering I’m no pro when it comes to the kitchen and a total novice on the grill.

GUEST POST: 8 Reasons Why You Should Try Home Chef

Hey Royals! TSF here and I’m back to share my 2 cents about something I think you all would love. Roxy often shares recipes and budgeting tips (which I’ve added to my arsenal of “live right goodness”) so I was excited to combine the two and experiment with a meal kit service. My choice was Home Chef. For those of you who are not familiar with a meal kit/delivery service, it’s essentially a program that lets you pick your meals for the week, then delivers all the ingredients to your doorstep. Each service is different in terms of how many meals you can order, how many recipes are available, how long you have to choose your menu etc, but the concept is the same.

World’s Easiest 30-minute Garlic Bread

I don’t know about anyone else but I am still reeling over Beyonce’s half time performance and the Carolina Panthers unfortunate fall to the Denver Broncos. Even though I was disappointed with the game’s outcome and this year’s commercials, the food surely did not disappoint! Last week, I put together a group of recipes that would be perfect for the Super Bowl from some of my fellow bloggers. It was really hard trying to decide which one to try, but when I woke up on Sunday I was still feeling my Mardi Gras fun, so I went for the garlic bread because it looked the easiest and required me to purchase very little.
