One Pan Whole Wheat Tomato Basil Pasta

The leaves are getting crunchier, days are getting shorter, sunlight has become like gold, and usually by the time I get home, it’s pitch black and all I want to do is get in my jammies and dial the closest take out establishment. Planning meals ahead of time is crucial during the week, and making […]

Orzo with Roasted Vegetables

Everyone has that one celebrity that they play out meeting someday over and over in their heads, some never getting the chance to actually do so, but even just the fantasy is enough. But for myself, my mom, my cousin Jen and Aunt Kathy, we got that chance two weeks ago when we joined a […]

Peanut Butter & Banana Quinoa Bites with Chocolate Chips

Themes.  I’ve always been a fan of themes.  I think it started in college with ‘theme parties’ – Pimps & Hos – Toga – Golf Pros and Tennis Hos – Keg (eh, that’s a stretch). And I like it when I can give a theme to a blog post/recipe – you have your theme, and […]

Black Bean Dip

Lately I’ve been feeling like there’s a lot of things trending in the world: Honey Boo Boo. The Harlem Shake. Kimye. Gluten Free eating. Within the last few months, two great friends of mine Liz & Al, got diagnosed with Celiac Disease.  And while they were relieved that there was finally an answer to all […]

Morningstar Farm Black Bean Burgers

MorningStar farms makes an array of amazing healthy foods in a pretty green box, one of my favorites being the Spicy Black Bean burger. I was never a huge ‘veggie burger’ person.  I do however LOVE black beans (I mean, you can even make brownies with them!) So on a whim, I decided to get […]

The Kitchen Bitchin Recipe Series: Casey's One-Pot Sausage Soup

In most scenarios, the word ‘bitchin’ is a good thing – “Hey man, that car is bitchin’” “That trip was bitchin’” “These cookies are bitchin” In this case, it’s quite the opposite. Last year, I shared with you all the dilemma of Dave and I and our somewhat “challenged” kitchen set up.  Welp – it’s […]

Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bites for Breakfast!

Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bites

First full week back to work = a fresh week to start a great series with a yummy little ingredient I’ve been seeing a LOT of lately – Quinoa – reminds me a little bit of Cous Cous, but much heartier and packed with protein.  I’ve come to learn too that it’s a great base […]

It’s goat cheese week!

Goat Cheese Week

We’re baaaaack – boy what a week it’s been! I feel like I’ve been to China and back (or maybe just the west coast) but in the last week, Dave and I flew to San Fran, drove to Sacramento, then drove to Lake Tahoe, then drove back to San Fran and then flew home!  It […]

Anyone out there that hates eating at 9pm during the week say “Aye” – AYE! Dave and I are big supporters of having breakfast for dinner – crack some eggs, fry some bacon (or turkey sausage), toss a couple pieces of toast in the toaster and you have a healthy and fulfilling dinner that you’re not […]
