Sweet Potato Fries

I think it's safe to say I have cooking "stage" fright. I'm convinced that when I cook a meal for friends, even a meal I've made loads of times, that this one time will be when I poison us all. Please tell me I'm not the only one who stresses over this.

Banana Chocolate Chip Mason Jar Muffins

Is anyone else as obsessed with watching the Olympics as I am right now? Besides slightly questioning all the choices I've made in life that did not lead me to be an Olympic Gold Medalist at 16 like some of these gymnasts, I'm constantly amazed at how talented, strong, and disciplined they all are in their respective sports.

Almond and Lemon Chicken with Zoodles

I did not want to make this meal. It had been a long week, I was tired and stressed, and the last thing I wanted to do was spend my Wednesday evening in the kitchen testing a new recipe when ordering pizza sounded like a way more suitable option.

Easy Homemade Falafel

Personally, I'm a huge fan of Greek food. It's always so fresh and colorful, filled with the brightest and tastiest vegetables, even slipping in healthy ingredients where you don't expect it.

Buffalo Chicken Bowl

Can we just agree that all of the best foods are served up in bowls? Cereal, guacamole, ice cream, burritos. I'm not a big fan of fish, but I'd probably like it a lot of better if I tried eating it out of a bowl.

Relax & Recharge

It's laughable to me now to look back and remember how stressed I was in college, balancing classes, school work, internships and jobs. I didn't even know what #adulting really was back then.

Key Lime Pie Popsicles

In case you haven't been to Florida lately, it's getting a little hot up in hurrr. Besides chugging gallons of water daily to keep from passing out under the intense sun rays, we're also doing our part to keep popsicle companies everywhere in business.

Breakfast Nachos

This meal was a celebratory one, of sorts. After a year and a half of cooking in the tiny, underwhelming galley kitchen of our apartment, this was the final meal that I cooked there before packing up and heading to our beautiful new home.

Toffee Pudding Mix Cookies

Healthy eaters, look away. I strayed away from my usual healthier baking to make some indulgent, melt in your mouth cookies for my pops for Father's Day. While he's a pretty healthy guy most of the time, he isn't one to cut back where cookies are concerned.

Ginger Steak Bowl with Peanut Sauce

When I was a kid, my mom coerced me into eating my veggies by having me "disguise" them. What did this look like? Small portions of green beans hidden beneath mountains of ketchup. It was the only way I could manage to eat any vegetables for years, which I now find humorous since I rarely eat ketchup these days.

Baked Egg Sweet Potatoes

Behind every successful food blogger, is their taste tester. A friend, roommate, family member, significant other. Someone who is willing to try anything and everything and give you their honest opinion. For me, my partner in sampling out new recipes is my husband Andy.

Birthday S'mores Brownies

For the past few weeks, I've been limiting the sweets I've been eating. Besides just trying to keep my tummy happy, we're also in the midst of birthday season and my body can't handle birthday treats three times a week. But all bets are off since it is now my birthday week, so I say LETS EAT CAKE. Or in this case, brownies.

Coconut Fruit Pizza

I had big plans for this dessert. I started making it last weekend with the idea to present it to my mother on Mother's Day since it includes some of her favorite flavors: coconut, kiwi, banana, almond. And in an attempt to keep it healthy, I made my first ever coconut flour crust. And failed. Horribly.
