Ruined my stepsister's birthday and got her banned from all clubs in town.

(warning: long story)

BACK STORY: When I was 12, my mom got married to a halfway decent guy. He’s not bad, but he’s not great either, but he made my mom happy and that’s all that I cared about. In fact, I cared so much about her happiness that I was willing to endure 6 years of living under the same roof as his self-obsessed, obnoxious, spoiled daughter, Amy. The entire time we lived together, she would project all of her insecurities onto me in the form of insults. Being young and wildly insecure about myself, these daily insults well and truly cut me to the core and just continued the cycle of crippling insecurity.

When I started “talking to” a boy for the first time, Kyle, she all of a sudden developed an intense infatuation with him and told me I was forbidden from communicating with him from then on. I was insecure but I was not a pushover. When I didn’t listen to her demands, she took it a step further and told Kyle I had ongoing relationships with several other boys (untrue), which he unfortunately believed. I was completely crushed. She then swooped in and took every opportunity to rub it in my face that she “won” him (i.e. inviting him to my birthday parties at home, inviting me out with her only to later reveal I would be thirdwheeling on their date, making him compliment me and then gloating about how she had such a nice boyfriend, etc). This sort of thing happened countless times, not with just boys but with friends and even workplaces! They ended up dating for two years and, although they had a nasty breakup, Kyle and I remained on good terms, which drove her up the wall. She would constantly ask me, “So did you guys hook up behind my back yet?” while claiming to have moved on already.

CHICKEN TORTILLA SOUP


INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 28-oz. can of diced tomatoes
  • 10.5 oz condensed chicken broth
  • 1 ¼ cups water (alternatively, you can use 2 ½ cups of homemade broth instead of the broth and water)
  • 1 ½ cups frozen corn kernels
  • 1 cup white hominy
  • 1 15 oz. can of black beans
  • 1 4 oz. can of chopped green chilies (my kids hate spicy food, so I don’t add these)
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 cooked chicken breast halves, cut into bite sized pieces (I grill mine, usually)
  • Toppings: crushed tortilla chips, shredded cheese, green onions, additional cilantro, sour cream

DIRECTIONS:

In a medium stock pot, saute onion in oil until soft. Add garlic and saute for one minute. Mix in chili powder, cumin, tomatoes, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, and simmer 5-10 minutes. Add corn, hominy, beans, chilies (if using), cilantro, and chicken, and heat through. Add salt to taste (if you use homemade broth, you will need to add more salt). Ladle into bowls, and add toppings of your choice.

PIZZA MAC N’ CHEESE


Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of elbow macaroni
  • 2 cups half and half
  • ¾ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • ¼ cup cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 8 ounces sharp shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 ounces shredded Gruyere cheese
  • ½ cup marinara sauce
  • ½ cup sun dried tomatoes
  • 3 ounces pepperoni slices 

Directions: 

1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
2. Bring a large pot of water to boil.
3. Add the macaroni and cook until al dente.
4. Strain the pasta, setting aside about 1 cup of the pasta water in a bowl for additional steps later on.
5. In a saucepan, combine up the half and half, oregano and crushed red pepper and place over heat to a simmer. Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring often. 
6. Add the cream cheese and stir until there are no chunks in the mixture.
7. Mix in the shredded Cheddar and Gruyere cheese until sauce is smooth.
8. Add the macaroni and the previously set aside cup of water to the saucepan. Don’t worry if it looks too liquidy; eventually the macaroni will soak up the excess liquid.
9. Stir in the marinara sauce, sun dried tomatoes and pepperoni.
10. Once thoroughly mixed, pour into a 13″x9″ inch pan.
12. Evenly sprinkle breadcrumbs and Parmesan over the baking pan with the macaroni and sauce in it.
13. Stick it in the oven for about 10 minutes to lightly brown the macaroni and allow the breadcrumbs to get crispy.
14. Take out of the oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
15. Serve it up and grub ’til that food coma ensues.
