Here’s my late Cinco De Mayo post! I am loving all the flavor combination possibilities with empanadas! Check out my addicting beef, chorizo, and potato recipe below!
Nothing is better than a dinner that takes less than 25 minutes to make and eat! You’ll honestly probably spend more time peeling the shrimp than it actually takes to make this recipe. Not only simple to make, but the combination of these fresh flavors create a hearty but healthy meal.
Avocados are hands down one of my favorite snacks and a great addition to just about anything! When I am getting ready in the morning, I will crack eggs into my halved avocado and toss them in the oven. In 20 minutes, I have a vitamin packed breakfast that is great to spread on bread or simply to enjoy with a spoon!
One big tip I have is to scoop out about 1-1.5 tablespoons of avocado (wide not deep) to create enough room for your egg. Otherwise it will overflow!
One of my new year resolutions is to bring lunch from home at least 4 work days a week. As all of us know…. harder said than done, especially working with a restaurant group!
So my plan is to make use of my favorite inventions, my zucchini spiralizer and mason jars! Here are a few recipes below that are some of the most simple and efficient ways to spice up your lunch and by day 4 still not wanting take out!
It’s 5 degrees outside today and I have very little to no motivation to even step outside into the frozen Windy City! Grocery shopping… no thank you! So quickly I became a contestant on the show Chopped with my fridge of 5 ingredients being my “basket.”
Now I wasn’t given the challenge of wasabi candy canes or banana ketchup…. but rather chicken breasts, vegetable stock, Brussels sprouts, onions, and carrots! Probably the easiest Chopped basket ever given. Not much of a “challenge,” but one pretty darn good soup on such a cold day! Read more
The ultimate healthy comfort food, this stuffed acorn squash gives you the creamy texture and rich taste with out any regrets. Delicious for lunch… dinner… or special event, this dish is a unique blend of flavors that will leave a memorable impression!
It’s finally snowing here in Chicago, which calls for a cozy blanket, holiday music, and a delicious hearty soup!
This Moroccan Spiced Chickpea Soup was created by my laziness to walk outside to get groceries in this snowy morning! The blend of spices are really what makes this soup special! All you really need are some canned chickpeas, canned tomatoes, and quinoa… pantry necessities!
This Sunday was well spent at the Wicker Park Famers Market. Beautiful vegetables, fruits, breads, and a adorable crepe stand!
