Weekend Photos

September 30, 2014 0 comments

I’m stopping in this morning to share a few pictures I snapped on my phone this weekend. Travis was away on business, so it was just Bessie and me holding down the fort. Since you all know how much Bessie likes sending text messages, she insisted on taking a few selfies to send to her daddy. Of course, I obliged. What a little camera hog she is! I had a […]

Strawberry and Avocado Salsa

In an effort to clean out my fridge this weekend, I created this INCREDIBLE strawberry and avocado salsa. Travis and I love making a mango-avocado salsa to serve on top of tilapia or halibut, but strawberries were the only fruit I had left in the fridge this time. In all honesty, the strawberries I had on hand were a little too ripe (borderline squishy), but I knew it wouldn’t matter for a salsa. […]

Apple Honey Muffins

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is on the horizon, so I thought it would be a good idea to bake something festive this weekend. It is customary to eat apples and honey together on Rosh Hashanah because it represents a “sweet new year.” I was definitely in the mood for something sweet yesterday morning, so I decided to bake these apple honey muffins in honor of the holiday. Sadly, […]

How to Make Steel cut Overnight Oats

Steelcut Overnight Oats

I love steel cut oats because they tend to fill me up better than regular rolled oats. The only problem is that they take at least 20 minutes to cook, which isn’t ideal on a weekday when you’re trying to get out the door in time for work. But did you know that you can actually cook steel cut oats overnight, so that they are ready for you in the morning?? […]

Recipe Organization: My Method

Recipe Organization

I subscribe to way too many food magazines. I kept receiving free or heavily discounted offers, so I just continued to sign up for one after the other. I read all of them, but in the last year my stockpile became a bit ridiculous. I began hoarding magazines on the bookshelf in our living room because I couldn’t part with them. As I read these magazines, I dog-ear pages that I […]

Zucchini Bread

There is something about the beginning of fall that makes me dream about warm freshly baked breads. Well, to be honest, I’ve been fantasizing about zucchini bread for a few weeks now, but it has been too hot to even think about turning on my oven. On Monday morning I saw I had three lonely zucchinis in the fridge just begging me to use them, so I finally sucked it up, turned […]

Steak Salad

When I got back from Boston on Monday, Travis told me he bought all of the ingredients to make our favorite steak salad. I was so excited because we had not had it in months. We started making this steak salad a little over a year ago after trying something similar at one of our favorite restaurants in Santa Monica, The Library Ale House. As I am sure you could […]

Vacation in Boston

Farmer's Market

Hi friends! The past two weeks I have been home with my family in Boston. I had some time before starting my new job, so I was able to spend a few weeks at home relaxing. I haven’t been home for that amount of time in over two years, so I felt very grateful for the time to relax and catch up with lots of family and friends! Now that I […]

Chicken Pita Sandwiches

With school and work starting up again after summer vacations, many of us are in need of new lunch options to throw into the mix. Personally, I always try to bring my lunch to work because it is cheaper, healthier, and I love knowing what I am eating. While I’ll always love sandwich classics like PB&J and turkey & cheese, I also get excited when I pack a new combination. If […]

Avocado Hummus

Avocado Hummus

Whoever decided avocado and hummus should go together is a genius. Travis has been buying spicy avocado hummus from Whole Foods for the last few weeks and he is hooked on the stuff. I glanced at the ingredients on the package and thought, “Heck, I could just make this.” Since I am away for the next few weeks, I decided to try and make it for him before I left. He always loves […]
