Finding the chic in everyday life

I love eating, cooking, crafting, zumbaing, ice skating, and lots of other randomness.

First generation organic.

Since December 2008, I've lost 15 lbs and I hope to continue my healthy habits of nutritious eating + frequent, fun exercising.

I don't think I usually eat good luck foods on New Years Day. I did this year though. According to my Grandma, eating anything green brings you money in the new year.

Hey Katie!

They are delish and so easy! I posted a link to the recipe (for both the frittatas and rolls) on my first blog post about them:

Those mini frittatas look amazing!


We eat foods for luck on New Year's Day. Yesterday we ate the greens, black eyed peas and pork chops. Pork is something my husband's family does for luck, so I went along with it. :)


great job with the eating in :) i keep getting more and more excited about this challenge :) saving money and healthifying some of my favorite treats I often order when feeling lazy- :)

Also- i LOVE that you shared that hot cocoa recipe. I used my last bit of prepackaged hot chocolate last night and I am stoked that I have all the ingredients you used in your homemade version (including the baileys ;) ) You are BRILLIANT!


My friend eats lentil soup for new year's for good luck (she is italian). where does the black eye peas and collard green tradition comes from?

Diana @ The Chic Life

I found a link w/ some info. In general, I think the peas represent coins and the collards represent green money - they're supposed to bring good luck and weatlh!

I'm new to commenting but wanted to say that I love your tea cup header- so adorable! I love your blog too- what great resolutions you came up with and I love the black eyed pea good luck food!

I didn't have any good luck foods just yummy food with good friends! :)Happy New Year!

I believe that if we are really meant to be lucky, we will be lucky, even without lucky meal or whatsoever.
