Grilled Chicken Kebabs with Cilantro, Garlic, and Garam Masala ll The perfect summertime grilling recipe that everyone loves! ll www.littlechefbigappetite.com

This is my favorite chicken marinade. It makes boring old boneless, skinless chicken breasts so juicy and flavorful. I’ve been making these Grilled Chicken Kebabs with Cilantro and Garam Masala for years now (even before I had a grill and only used my grill pan). I bought my first jar of Garam Masala back in college when I was making an authentic Indian dish. For a long time it sat behind […]

Whole Wheat Flatbreads with Fig and Arugula

A few weeks ago Travis and I enjoyed a delicious date night out at Momed.  Momed is a casual and modern Mediterranean restaurant in Beverly Hills. Every bite we had that night was outstanding. If I had any more room in my belly I would have just kept eating. Although, I did make sure to save room for a piece of their Baklava because I was eyeing it in the display […]

Asian Turkey Meatballs with Sesame-Soy Dipping Sauce

Sunday night’s dinner came together very quickly, which was exactly what I was hoping for. I promised myself this weekend would be all about relaxing, catching up on the one million errands I had to do, and just straight up chilling. It ended up being all about the one million errands I had to do. Where the hell did the time go? So by 5PM on Sunday night, all I […]

Homemade Pumpkin and Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits (and an Explanation on Fostering Dogs)

Your dog will LOVE these Homemade Pumpkin and Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits! They’re made with very few healthy ingredients, ensuring only the best treats for your pup! These biscuits are made from all human ingredients — just made for doggie taste buds. I tried them. You won’t like them. But your dogs (or your friend’s dogs) totally will!

My Favorite Protein Pancakes

I am a MAJOR breakfast advocate. If you’re my friend (or my mom!) and you’ve told me that you tend to skip breakfast, I have most likely given you a “YOU NEED TO EAT BREAKFAST” speech. They’re not kidding when they say it is the most important meal of the day, people. Besides, if you eat a healthy breakfast, you are more likely to start your day on a healthy track […]

Sweet Potato Cookies with Raisins and Coconut

Try these delicious Sweet Potato Cookies with Raisins and Coconut for a healthy, clean fall dessert. They’re packed with healthy ingredients for a guilt-free cookie.   I really want you to trust me on this one. I am fully aware of how weird these cookies sound. I am telling you to put sweet potatoes into cookies. It’s completely bizarre. I get it. But hey, we’ve done weirder things before: put […]

Almond Butter Granola with Flax Seeds

Almond Butter Granola with Flax Seeds

This Almond Butter Granola with Flax Seeds is gluten-free, vegan, and packed with healthy fats. Try it on top of yogurt or as a quick snack on the go.   If we were to play word association with the word “granola,” I guarantee one of the first words to be thrown around would be “healthy.” But the sad reality is, that just ain’t true. So many packages of granola and […]

Spiced Roasted Almonds

I hate how quickly retailers try to make us forget summer. The stores were filled with Halloween decorations weeks ago and soon they will be shoving those out to make room for the holiday decorations. Before we know it, all we will see is red and pink for Valentine’s Day. Can we SLOW IT DOWN PEOPLE? Here in LA it is still summer weather (well, that’s nothing new) and I […]

Chia Seed Protein Bars

I’ve been on a real Chia Seed kick for the last year. I put these little guys in everything – yogurt, overnight oats, and now I make protein bars with them, too! If you have never had chia seeds, or you’ve seen them in the store and are hesitant to try them, here are a few things that may sway you: – They are a great source of healthy fats, […]
