Paprika Chicken and Spinach

Hola everyone, I’ve been slacking. Between an exhausting “vacation” in Las Vegas and starting a new job, I’ve been so tired! But, I had to start cooking again and here is where I started…a delicious, comfort meal! Ingredients: 1 large chicken breast 1/2 cup red onion, diced 1 tsp paprika salt & pepper 2 Tbsp…

Oystahs for a $1?

I only started enjoying oysters within the recent past (thanks to the “trying to look cool” act I put on in front of my wonderful boyfriend when we first started dating), but now I cannot get enough of them. Living in Boston has opened up MANY opportunities to enjoy them. The one caveat…they’re expensive. BUT…

Lolita – Boston

Has anyone been Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar in Back Bay? It is to die for – I went last night for my second time. My cousin and I enjoyed great salsas, a guacamole trio, delicious tacos, and OF COURSE some tasty margaritas (I ordered the firing squad!). This place gives you a real experience…

“Meatballs”

Alright, I have a big trip planned next weekend in the warmest of weather and so I need to look my best. That means this week is low in carbs and high in vegetables! I had all that leftover zucchini and ricotta from my gf vegetarian pizza this week, and I thought…what the heck can…

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…

How I Treat My Boston “Boyfriend”

So as a newbie to Boston I’m lucky enough that one of my best friends from college lives here too. Best part? She and I have very similar palates šŸ™‚ so usually when we hang out we cook together (or just eat a lot of cheese and cured meats…) and drink some wine. I was…

Mother’s Day Brunch, Away from Moms

Living in Boston and no being able to get home this weekendĀ 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 recipeĀ 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…

Wine Riot, South End Boston

I had a true “Saturday Don’t Matter Day” this weekend. Never heard of it? Neither had I. From my understanding, and experience, it’s when you drink, eat, spend and do whatever you want on a Saturday, because it doesn’t matter. Cool. Starting out at brunch (at The Beehive, of course), and then the browsing around…

SoWa Open Market

Boston’s South End is now one of the nicest, best places to get the real Boston feel. However it wasn’t always like this, and cities remember histories. However, spiraling off of the area’s artistic culture, the South End is known for Boston’s largest open market from April to October every year, and a few seasonal…
