Thoughts of apartment hunting and moving fill my mind.... nothing like a flavor-packed bowl of fresh veggies with homemade vinaigrette to soothe my stress! This is a great recipe to incorporate your local grocery store's rotisserie chicken! If you want more wholesome ingredients add artichoke hearts and chickpeas :)
Over the weekend we had a road trip gone bad... major FAIL! Find out all about that and the amazing food I got to eat at one of the nations most famous food spots. Its important to always see the positive in a negative situation, so that's what this beautiful recipe is all about :)
These juicy babies are stuffed with feta cheese, spinach, mushrooms, crushed red pepper and other yummies. Top it with fresh avocado slices and nestle it on some butter lettuce and a King's Hawaiian bun and you are golden. I love pairing this guy with some A1 sauce or some whole grain mustard... le fancy! Perfect recipe for those cool Spring evenings when the grill is calling your name. Pair it with some baked potato wedges and you have an incredible meal!
The perfect dessert to make this Easter weekend! Perfectly sweet light and fluffy. I loved pairing it with some whipped cream and a coffee. Isn't it perty?!
Miami, Florida is home to so many amazing authentic Cuban restaurants. Sadly, Orlando has very few places that hit the spot. So I decided to make some at home! If you know good Cuban food, you know that these little babies are like gold. They are savory, crunchy and so satisfying but usually they are deep fried in oil. I healthy-fied them up by baking them and trust me, you won't be missing any of the grease! Especially because I made an incredible garlic mojo for dipping! I love when I can really toot my own horn, toot toot!
I am just embracing spring with open arms here! With my AC broken all weekend I decided to make a light fish en papillote AKA fish in parchment paper. This is a simple little pouch that holds all the steamy flavorful goodness locked in on whatever fish you desire most. Light, healthy and packed with the flavors of spring and summer. Pair this with a crisp Sauvignon Blanc and you're in business!
