Baked Potato and Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

A few days before the wedding, I came across a killer deal for a Vitamix at Costco that I could not resist. My life savings was already down the crapper so I figured why not dig myself a bigger hole and purchase myself a super high powered blender while I was at it? While a […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Monday, November 26th, 2012

As a nurse, my mother is required to work one holiday a year.  For as long as I can remember she always has chosen Thanksgiving as her holiday.  One year, when I was about 11 or 12, my family got kind of lazy to whip up a big meal so they decided to purchase a […]

Curried Vegetables Over Quinoa

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

If you are craving Indian food without the heavy cream and clarified butter — this should do the trick!  It is spicy, easy to make, and quite filling.  But I’m not going to lie — it would have tasted MUCH better in a creamy tomato sauce with lots of garlic naan to soak it up.  […]

Chasin’ Tails

Friday, March 30th, 2012

I was lucky enough to check out the soft opening at the much-anticipated Chasin’ Tails Restaurant yesterday and all I have to say about it is… NOM NOM NOM As a seafood aficionado, I have never had the chance to fall in love with crawfish.  My pops had 30 lbs of fresh crawfish flown in […]

Get On the Boat, the Zucchini Boat!

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

In my household of two, I am the main cook while Rob takes care of the dishes.  Some people may think that I have it easy since cooking is the fun part, but it is EXHAUSTING trying to come up with new and delicious recipes all the time.  Thanks to Pinterest, this task has been […]

The Dirty Dozen: What Vegetables to Buy Organic

Friday, March 16th, 2012

After speaking to a few people, I realized that buying organic produce is not always an option for those with kids to support, a house to pay for, student loans, expensive shoe habits, etc.  This is something that you should not beat yourself up over.  If you arm yourself with the correct information you will […]

Portobello Mushroom Fajitas

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

These mushroom fajitas were JAWSOME.  And I’m the type of girl who appreciates an extra juicy steak fajita. Even though I had cheese as a topping option, I didn’t use it because the dish was so flavorful as is.  The best part?  It was super easy to make.  Rob helped me make the pico de […]

Greek Style Chicken Wings

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Rob and I love chicken wings but since he gave up fried food for Lent and I am trying to eat healthier in general, I had to come up with new alternative. I really love Mediterranean style flavors so I seasoned some organic, free-range chicken wings I found at Trader Joe’s in olive oil, oregano, […]

Spinach-Basil Pesto and Bowtie Noodles

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

Ever since I saw a Facebook photo of my sister Kristina’s pesto noodles made with homegrown basil, I have been JONESING for the dish.  My time finally came last Thursday night.  I didn’t get home from work till about 8:30 and I wanted something carb-filled and creamy in my belly. I followed Ina Garten’s basic […]

Bulgogi with Grass Fed Beef

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

By day 3 of our vegetarian diet, Rob was begging for some meat!  I was okay with that because everything is fine in moderation.  I was able to find some thinly sliced grass-fed beef so I decided to make bulgogi.  I served the meal with lots of romaine lettuce and kim chi so we could […]
