Hi friends! Are you ready for a crazy delicious recipe this morning? This Roast Chicken recipe is PERFECT. Hearty, delicious and healthy. For me, a roast chicken is the epitome of fall comfort food. I love throwing a whole bird into the oven on a Sunday evening when I have a bit more time to cook. Since there are only two of us, there are always leftovers, but Travis and I […]

Miracle Crust Apple Pie

Fall is upon us people! It’s really hard to believe because the temperatures are still in the upper 80’s in Los Angeles. Don’t get me wrong, I love the summer, but I am itching for the temps to cool down a bit. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I haven’t been cooking as much recently. It’s just been too darn hot in our apartment to even […]

Hello! How are you guys? Can you believe it’s already Wednesday? I mean, thank goodness for Monday holidays! This London post was SUPPOSED to go up last Friday, but as I mentioned, things have been quite nuts around here lately, so alas, here we are on Wednesday. Better late than never. I took 1,389,457,343 photos in London, so in order to keep this post as concise as possible, we’re going to […]

Hi friends! Happy Hump Day! My week is moving pretty quickly, and I can’t wait for the long weekend. Work has been very crazy for me since I got back from my trip, so I am definitely looking forward to the extra day to catch up on life things this weekend.

One Day in Amsterdam

Hello, I am back! To catch you up, the last 10 days I was traveling through Europe. My dad’s side of the family had a big family reunion in the English countryside, where he grew up. When planning this trip months ago, we quickly realized that flying from LA to Europe takes a long time, and there weren’t many direct flights that were budget-friendly. Many of the flights we looked at had […]

Tips to Stay Healthy While on Vacation

Hi people! I am leaving for vacation in England TODAY! Woohoo, I can’t wait! We booked this trip months ago and I am thrilled that it is finally here. Before I leave, I wanted to share how I stay healthy on vacation.

Delicious Vitamin-Packed Green Smoothie Recipe! ll Vegan, Gluten-Free and Refined-Sugar Free ll

Monday night I came home from work and our apartment was HOT. I knew Travis wanted a “real” meal for dinner, but cooking was the last thing I felt like doing. I had just picked up lots of fresh produce at the grocery store, and the only thing that sounded appealing to me was a cold, fresh smoothie. I know, that is so unlike me. I typically would consider a smoothie a pathetic dinner, […]

Los Liones Hike

Hello friends! How was your weekend? Mine was great! We had plans to go away for a short trip, but our plans changed at the last minute. It ended up being fine because we had an activity-packed non-stop weekend! Friday night neither of us felt like cooking, so after 20 minutes of debating what to eat, we decided to head to The Misfit, our favorite local restaurant. We started our […]

Steak Tips with Applewood Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce Recipe

I talk a lot about how much I love grilling during warm weather. My kitchen doesn’t become 110 degrees, clean up is much easier, and the obvious…it’s delicious! When Weber offered to send me their newly reformulated line of BBQ sauces, I was so excited! Travis and I already use a Weber grill at home and we’re big fans of their grilling equipment. To be honest, I didn’t know much […]
