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 🙂 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 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…

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…

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,…

Tasty Videos

Does anyone else watch these from bed in the morning? just me? check them out on Facebook – and here’s a fun meatball video 🙂

Trader Joes Frozen Oatmeal

I am always looking for easy, filling, and protein filled breakfasts. The key word there is EASY. I don’t always have time to make eggs or protein pancakes, but have any of you seen this frozen steelcut oatmeal from Trader Joes? 2 minutes, stir, add some fruit and almonds and YUM!
