Baked Falafel Puffs

I surround myself with never-ending to-do lists. During the school year I had sticky notes surrounding my desk with lists of errands I needed to run, groceries I had to buy, and a list of assignments with impending due dates. Now I am at this strange period in between college and “real life” and although I suppose I have all the free time in the world and zero obligations, I […]

Farro Salad with Apples, Almonds and Smoked Mozzarella

I’m back. Sorry, I know it’s been awhile. Stuff got busy you see. A lot of things have happened since I’ve been gone. I got a job (woo!), I graduated from college (MAJOR milestone there), packed up everything in my college apartment, moved back home, unpacked everything, and now I am starting to pack up all my stuff AGAIN to move across the country. Yeah, big things. Over the course […]

What’s your general thought on turkey burgers?  Are you someone who finds them dry and tasteless? Ya, me too.  I try to opt for turkey burgers whenever I can, but so often I end disappointed by the taste, texture, or crazy amount of added salt. Well, this recipe for Asian Turkey Burgers is totally different.  These burgers have a ton of flavor and are so easy to make. For a moister turkey burger, […]

Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie

Earlier this week my friends and I had a debate over the difference between a smoothie and a milkshake.  Some people said that smoothies always include blended ice. Others said that milk never goes into a smoothie and only in a milkshake.  And then one person insisted that a milkshake has ice cream, milk, and ice. Then given all of that, I really don’t know what this drink is, but I […]

Honey Roasted Cashews l www.littlechefbigappetite.com

Today I had lunch at Whole Foods. No, not from the salad bar…and no, not from the prepared food section. I lunched/snacked (snunched?) on all the samples. It’s this sick / weird / totally smart thing I do. It started when I used to go to Costco with my family on the weekends. You know how that is — they have a sample section at the end of every aisle […]
