What I’m Loving Lately

December 17, 2014 2 comments

Hello, and happy Thursday friends! My week is flyyyyying by and I am not complaining! I wanted to pop in and share a few things I am loving lately.   Hanukkah The first night of Hanukkah was on Tuesday evening. To be honest, I get pretty homesick for my family during any holiday I am away from them – I miss our traditions! In college, sometimes I would FaceTime my parents as we […]

Pumpkin Hummus

Clearly I am hooked on making dips right now because today I bring you the most delicious Pumpkin Hummus recipe. If you’re one of those people obsessed with pumpkin-EVERYTHING as soon as fall hits, you’re going to love this hummus. Even if you’re not, I bet you’ll think this Pumpkin Hummus is A++++ (if I do say so myself). The pumpkin flavor is faint, but you still definitely know it’s there. The addition […]

Sun-Dried Tomato Dip

Sun-dried Tomato Dip

I love eating tapas-style because that way I get to try small bites of many different things. More and more restaurants are offering shared small plates instead of larger dishes, and it is always my preference to order this way, as opposed to getting my own entree. This is probably why I always look forward to snacking at the appetizer table during the holiday season – lots and lots of delicious nibbles […]

What I Ate Wednesday

Salad for Lunch

Well, I took a two week hiatus from blogging and social media, but I am back! The past two weeks have been filled with travel for work and the holiday, so I wanted to fully immerse myself and block out the internet for awhile.  Thanksgiving is my all-time favorite holiday, so I was beyond excited to go home. Spending time with my family is even more special now that I live 2,000 […]

Sharing a big ol’ photo dump from my iphone! I haven’t done this in awhile, so I am ready to catch you up on what I’ve been up to. Travis and I have talked about doing monthly dinner parties at our apartment forever now, but we finally got around to it. We hosted a Mediterranean-themed dinner party and invited over four of our friends. We cooked the main meal and our […]

Maple Chili Popcorn

Maple Chili Popcorn

I remember growing up, every holiday season my dad would receive a massive tub of popcorn from work. The tub was divided into three delicious flavors: butter, caramel, and cheese. Given that I’ve always had a sweet tooth, the caramel was my favorite – I could eat myself sick with that stuff. Now that I try to keep a (much) healthier diet, snacks like that caramel popcorn don’t typically make it […]

Butternut Squash Soup

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have spotted this Butternut Squash Soup over the weekend. Travis has been under the weather for a few days now, so I wanted to make something warm and comforting for him. I love butternut squash soup, but I was looking for a way to enhance the flavors of the soup and differentiate it a bit. These parmesan-shallot crisps do just the trick! […]

Extra Crispy Roasted Potatoes

Crispy Roasted Potatoes

I have this thing about regular potatoes that if they aren’t cooked extra crispy (I mean borderline charred), I really don’t care for them. To me, baked potatoes and mashed potatoes are just so boring (I know, I am crazy!). It must be a texture thing. Travis, on the other hand, loves potatoes, so if I make them, I always try to roast the bejesus out of them to make […]

Meal Prep Recipe Roundup

Cardamom Granola

Every weekend, I meal prep at least one recipe for the work week. Meal prepping is great for people with busy schedules (ahem, all of us!) because you can simply grab and go meals and snacks when you’re on the run. It is also perfect for constantly hungry people (me!!) because there is always something healthy in the fridge for me to eat, so I don’t have to turn to junk food. […]

Chicken and Chickpea Sausage Minestrone Soup

It’s getting to be that time of the year where all you want to do after work is cozy up with something warm. Even though the nighttime weather is only hitting the low 60’s in LA recently, I still find myself craving warmer meals. This Chickpea and Chicken Sausage Minestrone Soup came out of a desire to make a hearty soup, but pack it with a protein, so that it would […]
