Chicken Caesar Pita

So I used to work at Chili’s back in high school and jr. college and I had a weakness for their Chicken Caesar Pita. It was an item I would only get on a special occasion because it was like 600 calories and it came with fries. But it was soo good. The warm pita…

Cheesy Mushroom Chicken

Recently I have been trying to eat cleaner — no more Splenda and limiting processed foods. I started doing this about a month ago and I feel a lot better. I just have more energy and my stomach is flatter. I recently have been posting my meals on my Instagram, mostly because it holds me…

Broiled Parmesan Herb Tilapia

Need a super-fast, but seems-really-fancy dinner? This recipe can be made in less than 10 minutes — start to finish! It can be a weeknight meal, or even pass for a meal to make for guests. I found this recipe in a Shape magazine years ago, and still use it as a great, low-carb, fall back…

My first half marathon!

I am officially a half marathon runner! And I am officially addicted. I never knew I would enjoy the feeling of running a race with other dedicated athletes as much as I did. So much in fact I cannot wait to register for my next race. If anyone has a favorite race or event I…

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday. Or happy only 4 more full days of work until the next weekend… I guess that is a negative standpoint, but I am just always so excited for my weekends! This weekend we’re headed to San Diego for my friend Whitney’s birthday! Yay for being able to conquer a new baking…

Chicken Fajita Quinoa Burrito Bowls

Honestly, I could live off Mexican food. No joke, Jake and I had a different kind of Mexican meal each night last weekend. Luckily I know (and now he does too!) how to lighten it up so it isn’t as damaging as it normally can be. I won’t lie, I LOVE traditional cheesy Mexican food.…

Greek Chicken Quinoa

  Happy Easter! Ever since I moved away from my hometown, the holidays seem to fade over time. Of course I go home for major holidays my family celebrates, but Easter hasn’t been one of them in a couple years. Luckily one of my closest friends here in LA is the hostess with the mostess. She…

Veggie Loaded Pepperoni Calzones

Aaah. Calzones. How dare you to exist. As a kid I always loved the idea of shoving all kinds of pizza ingredients into a thick crust with a ton of cheese. Of course, I didn’t cook this… my dad would, but they were always so good. My dad actually used to make homemade pizza dough…

Honey Lemon & Rosemary Chicken

Sometimes I seem to forget how much of an improvement a marinade can make! Who wants plain old chicken? I mean sure, it’s okkkk. But maybe it’s just me, but I just don’t love the flavor of chicken or turkey on it’s own. It needs flavor. I now love to make my own simple marinades. I…
