Weekend Food Prep

Weekend Food Prep

Soo I wasn’t so great on the healthy eating thing these past four days. It was bound to happen, since I had an insane week at work and was too busy enjoying a baseball game last Sunday to do any food prep. Meanwhile, I’ve been quite good and have kept up with 1 gym trip … Continue reading

Chicken with Spicy Peanut Sauce

So I think I’ve said this a few times before, but spring has definitely sprung in Northern California. Aside from a couple of rainy days here and there, and some crazy wind, I think spring is here to stay. It’s forecast to reach 85 degrees today! Anyway, the moral of all of this weather talk … Continue reading

Weekend in Photos

Weekend in Photos

Oh boyyyy was it hard getting out of bed this morning. Seriously…I severely underestimated how tired I would be with Daylight Savings, and overestimated my willpower to get up after just one snooze. This is all karma for me being the DST cheerleader yesterday. Let’s just say I’ll probably be staying late at work today … Continue reading

Week in Groceries

Week in Groceries

Calling all grocery shopping cart voyeurs! Am I the only one who thinks it’s super interesting to see what other people buy during their grocery shopping trip? I hope not, because this post is allllll about groceries. As I’ve mentioned before, where I shop for groceries is mostly a matter of convenience. I don’t have … Continue reading

Protein Packed Lentil Stew

Protein Packed Lentil Stew

So I’ve kind of fallen off the recipe wagon. There’s a number of reasons for this- I’ve had a few cooking fails in the kitchen, I just haven’t been inspired to make anything new lately besides soups and stews (which have largely been fails…see reason #1), and the biggest reason is because nothing ever looked … Continue reading

Meatless Monday: Spaghetti Squash

Meatless Monday: Spaghetti Squash

I am FINALLY sharing with you all my recipe for spaghetti squash! I’ve only showed you pictures of me making it one two three times, I guess it’s time I post my recipe. The thing is, this isn’t a recipe as much as it is a method. Spaghetti squash is super versatile. Once you roast … Continue reading

Spicy Crispy Squash Rounds

Sometimes, I feel like a bit of a produce pusher. Pretty much all summer long, I ate quinoa. I made it for lunch, I snacked on it, and I brought it to potlucks so that everyone else could see how good it was… There was back in (what felt like summer but was actually) late … Continue reading

Meatless Monday: Curried Cauliflower Soup

Meatless Monday: Curried Cauliflower Soup

Something about cold weather makes it so hard to get out of bed in the morning. I mean, the obvious conclusion is that no one wants to leave the comfort of a warm, cozy bed for the cold, harsh world. We don’t usually run the heater at night (because we’re cheap :-P)…we’ve had a warm … Continue reading

Meatless Monday: Late Autumn Grain Blend

Meatless Monday: Late Autumn Grain Blend

Told you guys I had something for you this Monday! Remember my summer skillet? I thought it was pretty freckin good as is: Trader Joe’s Harvest Grain Blend with summer vegetables like zucchini and tomatoes and just a touch of white wine and basil. (OK, it WAS pretty good!) However, I came up with a … Continue reading

Meatless Monday: Pumpkin Curry

Meatless Monday: Pumpkin Curry

My original plan for this month was to show you all how to roast & puree a pumpkin, and then share a bunch of pumpkin recipes. After pumpkin bread on Friday and pumpkin curry today…I’m totally going backwards. Since I didn’t exactly think a Weekend in Photos post was appropriate (my weekend consisted of only … Continue reading
