This Kitchen.

I moved this week. I moved out of my old, crazy, tiny little kitchen.

This kitchen where I could never get the oven to work just right…

This kitchen where I wanted to pull my hair out multiple times over the past twelve months…

This kitchen where I worked so hard to make the space functioning and beautiful…

This kitchen where I somehow wrote and developed my second cookbook…

This kitchen filled with so many memories…

This kitchen…

How to Throw a Taco Bar Party (In Less Than One Hour!)

How To Throw A Taco Bar Party

Once we enter fall I feel like time just starts speeding up. One minute you’re picking apples, the next minute you’re carving pumpkins, and then before you know it, you’re drinking this cranberry rosemary refresher and writing out dreams and goals for the New Year.

Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice

Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice

You may not believe me when I tell you that that’s not actually rice in the picture. No, really, there’s not one bit of rice in that dish.

Coconut Crusted Chicken Strips

Coconut Crusted Chicken Strips

Awhile back a friend introduced me to these amazing chicken strips from the Whole Foods freezer aisle. She even showed me how simple they are to make: you just pull them out of the box, plop them on a sheet pan, and bake! I’ll admit it: I was intrigued.

Green Tea Soda

Green Tea Soda

One of the hardest habits I had to break a few years back was kicking the diet soda. I’m not going to lie: it wasn’t easy. I missed that bubbly, sweet sensation… well, until I realized I could make my own sodas and spritzers using sparkling water. Lately I’ve been needing a little something extra…

7 things you need to eat before summer ends…

I don’t like the fact that summer is ending. However, since there’s nothing I can do to stop time, I’m just going to make the most of it and breathe in the last bit of summer as much as I can. Most people make summer bucket lists. They fantasize about tropical vacations, days at the beach,…
