Healthy(-er) Chocolate Chip Cookies

So one of my rooomates is Vegan and as I’ve stated before I am definitely not, BUT I definitely enjoy trying everything and let me tell you THIS GIRL makes the best vegan desserts. It’s crazy sounding, I know but it is TRUE. Living with her has opened my eyes to some healthier alternatives to…

Texas Dinin’ and Drankin’ (Part 3)

So in Austin I ate BBQ, which I discussed in my last Texas post, but I also drank some great cocktails and ate some truly farm-to-table meals (because I was literally on a farm…). We hit the town hard on Saturday night – First on Rainey Street we visited Lucille’s Patio Lounge. As the website…

Ballin’ on a Budget: Homemade Chinese Delivery

When I don’t know what I want to eat, it’s really simple actually: I want Chinese food. I’ve learned it always makes me happy, and I’m always satisfied. The downfall? If I don’t want to leave my house (read: always the case) and my favorite delivery has a $20 minimum (read: sigh), that can break…

Texas Dinin’ and Drankin’ (Part 2)

In this post I want to talk about the barbeque I had in Austin, Tx. I mean – the REAL Texas BBQ experience, YUM! The featured picture for this post was my meal. In fact, I’m just going to post it again. We went to Stiles Switch BBQ and what you see on my plate above…

Mother’s Day Brunch, Away from Moms

Living in Boston and no being able to get home this weekend means I’m not with my mom today! I have a few friends who are also away from their moms this weekend so I offered to host our own brunch-away-from-mom Mother’s Day brunch. In that pic you can see my “brunch-bar.” I made cookie butter…

Carb Queen Part 4: Primavera a New Way

So by no means am I vegan, but I’m open to eating anything if it’s delicious. Last night I really wanted to use more of the coconut milk I opened for my Chickpea Curry earlier this week, so I found this vegan pasta primavera recipe and I reallllyyy enjoyed it. Personally, I needed more salt and…

Oleana, Cambridge

Well everyone my birthday was on Monday – woohoo! Thankfully my lovely boyfriend enjoys eating and trying new places as much as I do. For my birthday dinner he found and took me to Oleana in Cambridge, MA. For those of you who are thinking, “Turkish food? What is that?” it’s really just part of…

Chickpea Curry

Alright, My school project for this blog is over…but I just realized that all of the really good recipes I’ve made over the last few months is on this blog. So I guess it’s not a big deal if people still read it…but it’s a great recipe record (although I hope you all keep reading!). One thing…
