Steelcut Overnight Oats

How to Make Steel Cut Overnight Oats

September 19, 2014 3 comments

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?? […]

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 […]

Skirt Steak Salad with Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Tomatoes, Green Beans, and Shaved Parmesan Recipe ll A hearty and gluten-free salad recipe! ll

When I got back from Boston on Monday, Travis told me he bought all of the ingredients to make our favorite skirt steak salad. I was so excited because we haven’t had it in months, and it’s one of our favorite dinners. 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. […]

Vacation in Boston

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 Recipe -

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 […]

Nut Butter Protein Bites

When I tell people that I work out at 5AM every morning before work, they usually tell me that I’m nuts. While that may be partially true, I’ve found that it really works with my schedule and I love the feeling of having my workout completed before most people are even waking up! I won’t lie, it definitely took me a few weeks to make it a habit and find the […]

And they lived happily ever after

Dear Bessie, I can’t believe you are the 12th dog we’ve fostered! Don’t worry, you’re not just a number to us. We love you soooooooooo much. Isn’t it crazy that we’ve fostered you since January!? So much has happened during our seven months together, and Travis and I have grown to love you more and more each day. I wanted to share with you seven reasons (one for every month) why I love you…   […]
