IMG_6634

Hello, everyone! Glad you’re enjoying the wedding photography practice session pictures I put up last night! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Matt and I stuck around DC and got some wedding planning done, along with some relaxing and outdoor fun. On Saturday morning, we hit up the farmer’s market! There’s nothing like the farmer’s Continue Reading …

Braised Chicken with Potatoes, Lentils, Fennel, and Kale

Good morning! I have a new recipe for you all today — now that vacation is over and I’m back to school (today marks the first day of my final semester of graduate school classes), I’m excited to start cooking and sharing recipes again. Especially for dinner! I was in the mood for something healthy and creative last night so Matt and I Continue Reading …

Last night, I turned on the oven.

Gooooood morning! Matt arrived back into town last night after a weekend with the guys in NYC, so I decided I would dust off the oven and actually cook a real meal to welcome him home. Shocking, I know. Behold: I seriously hadn’t turned on my oven in way too long. Summer heat = all I want are nice, cool salads and vegetarian fare (especially Continue Reading …

Roasted Marinated Pork Tenderloin Recipe

One of the resounding favorites (among both kids AND adults) from the kid’s cooking classes we taught last week was a Roasted Marinated Pork Tenderloin.

Hello friends! I’m back to share more details about my trip to Arizona this week with Thermador! They flew me and 11 other bloggers out to Scottsdale for a fun foodie unveiling of their new cooking range. We even got to try it out ourselves! (Loved the rhinestone aprons they gave us, hehe!) I’ll start from the beginning ;) Before Continue Reading …

Learning the Food Service Ropes at UNC Hospital

Gooooooood morning! I love that almost no one else knew about slicing Brussels sprouts, either! Here’s to all of us eating delicious sprouts from now on :) I think next time I will also try slicing them in half — a lot of people recommended that, too, both to decrease cooking time and increase the amount of the sprout that gets a nice golden Continue Reading …

Taco Night!

I’ve been feeling in a big rut lately food-wise, so on Saturday, Matt and I decided to mix things up. Enter: TACO NIGHT!!! I hadn’t had tacos in FOREVER and they’re so fun to make. Plus, I always crave Mexican food when it starts getting warm out :) We cooked lean ground turkey with homemade taco seasoning, heated up some whole wheat Continue Reading …

Healthy Diner-Style Chicken Fingers (!)

When I was in my early 20’s and going out on the town all the time, chicken fingers were always my late night diner food of choice. There’s just something about biting into a delicious, crisp, hot, juicy chicken tender smothered in ketchup that makes me swoon. I hardly ever eat them now, though, because a) I don’t often find myself in diners Continue Reading …
