The Poor Couple Has Big News!

It’s been a bit of a slow year here at PCFG, and a few of you may be wondering why our posts have tapered off in the past year or so. Well, to start off, we’d like to apologize to our fans who may be missing our more regular posting schedule. We swear we have a good excuse though!

Originally, we had moved into a new apartment together at the beginning of this year, and figured by Summertime we’d be back into the swing of posting things. Unfortunately that didn’t quite happen. After a handful of financial crises (including an emergency new car purchase), we were finally able to put the hectic past 7 months behind us. That brings us to our big news!

The Poor Couple got engaged!

So yes, in other words, the Poor Couple will now be even poorer! We joke of course, since this is a happy time, but as you can imagine, getting engaged this Summer was obviously a big distraction from posting as well. Fortunately, we’re starting to get back on our feet and back closer to a more regular posting schedule. If all goes well, we should be able to at least get a few posts up per month like we used to (though we can’t promise this, since as everyone knows, wedding planning is a lot of work)! That aside, we may even be able to write up a few articles on doing some wedding planning on the cheap!

Thanks again to all our persistent fans! We’ll make sure to keep you all in the loop with fun new recipes, Pizza Lab experiments, and cooking tips as we always have. Stay tuned!

Yes, the setting may be nice, and it’s nice to have someone bring food to your table, so you and your mate can focus on the mushes, but what if you couldn’t get that reservation?

PCFG Gives Four Practical, Cheap, Easy Tips For Losing Weight!

So it’s no secret that America is really really fat. I know it, you know it, we’re all aware of it and yet the problem gets worse and worse every year. Obviously, there’s nothing wrong with being a tiny bit overweight, and fat-shaming is bad. That said, trying to lose weight when you’re heavy, is a good thing, and millions of people struggle to try and lose weight every single day, to no avail. There’s eight billion different diets and weight loss programs out there, but personally, we here at PCFG are not fans of wonky regimens and huge, sweeping changes to diet. Both Meg and I have had to worked on losing weight at one point or another in our lives, so we’ve been there before. At the same time, we’re absolutely not dieticians or doctors, so any advice we offer is merely simple, practical advice for any of our readers. Food is slammin’! But so is self control! And obviously balance is the key.

Yes, it's this picture again.  We'll try to get a different one up soon, promise.

Still though, food is pretty damn important.

PCFG Is Off For A Week! Sorry For No Posts!

As you can see, no new posts on PCFG this week unfortunately! Our deepest apologies if you were really looking forward to one. We’re still working on the site’s next relaunch, pending a super srsbiz meeting between Meg and I. Don’t sweat it though, Summer is right around the corner! And with summertime comes our awesome, mid-year posting schedule which includes both a new recipe and a Smoothie Sunday post every single week!

Until then, we leave you with the following question: is this a picture of one of our butts?

Dough butt.

Happy Birthday Poor Couple’s Food Guide!

From the beginning, cooking and food has been a big part of me and Erik’s relationship.  A year ago this week we decided to start a blog about it.  What started as wacky experiments in pizza in the form of Pizza Lab has now expanded to 6 categories with lots of recipes and reviews.  We had a slow start, but our audience has been growing, and will hopefully continue to grow.  We really want to thank those of you who have been with us from the beginning and for the support from our friends and family.  And of course we’re also always grateful for new readers and new fans.  You all mean a lot of us.  Every comment or like helps us feel like we’re making a difference.  So thank you everyone! 

There’s some other big things coming soon for Poor Couple’s Food Guide, so keep an eye on the Facebook page!
