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…

“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…

A Craving is Craving…Even a Healthy Craving

On my way back to Boston from San Diego I had a short layover in the Minneapolis St. Paul airport. It seems random, but actually this terminal is small and delightful with plenty of food options. Being alone, I decided to opt for a flatbread to go option and take it to my gate and…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Pasta and Broccoli – Carb Queen Part 3

This week I NEEDED pasta. I know what you’re thinking, “Okay you wanted pasta.” No, no, no, I really mean that I needed it. It wasn’t just any normal craving, it was my carb queen craving. However, I was running low on regular ingredients for a pasta dish, and I didn’t want to be super…

Cooking has Been Hard…

Ugh, this blog has been hard to keep up with the last two weeks and that’s partially because I haven’t been cooking enough. I love to cook, as you know, but I’ve been so lazy recently so I’ve found some fun and relatively “healthy” frozen meals. My personal recent favorite? Amy’s organic mac’n’cheese. What do…

Favorite Food Network Show

Alright everyone, if you’re on this site I’m sure you watch the Food Network. Maybe not as much as I do (cause believe me that’s a LOT), but it’s definitely on your regular channel scroll, am I right? My favorite Food Network show is Chopped. The excitement of what’s in the basket, the creative delivery,…
