{WIAW} What I Ate Wednesday – March 2016

March 2, 2016 2 comments

Hello! We made it to Wednesday already! This week is flyyyyying by for me. My friend, Meredith, was here visiting us all weekend and she just left yesterday morning. So since I last checked in with you guys, my days have been jam-packed with Los Angeles sightseeing and lots of eating! I haven’t done a What I Ate Wednesday post in a long time, so I thought I’d bring it back […]

Chewy, Delicious Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Cookies l www.littlechefbigappetite.com

I thought you might need a little pick-me-up this Thursday, so how about some cookies? As the title of this post says, these Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are perfectly chewy and SO delish! I spent last Friday night on a baking spree. I’d had a very long week at work and all I needed was to put away my phone and computer and just totally de-stress. Wine, Netflix, scented candles and […]

This Week's Meal Plan l www.littlechefbigappetite.com

Oh boy, did we have a crazy weekend. Saturday morning was rough. After Bessie’s morning walk she ate her food like normal and then about one hour later she started acting really strangely. She was sitting up in her bed and rocking from side to side, when all of a sudden she scrambled out of her bed, but was only moving with her two front legs. It was as though her […]

Alternative titles for this post: Bessie the Bed Thief My Dog Makes No Sense My Incredibly Creative, Very Obsessive Dog Since, it’s Friday (YIPPPEEEE!) I was feeling a very lighthearted post for today. I personally love when I get a little sneak peak into a blogger’s life, so I thought it would be fun to share one of the things that makes Travis and me laugh constantly around here. Bessie has this thing […]

Tuscan White Bean Soup with Chicken Recipe l www.littlechefbigappetite.com

For those of you freezing your butts off right now, I hope this soup comes at the perfect time. I love one-pot meals and I especially love them on weeknights when I don’t want to do a lot of cleanup. Because, let’s be real, who has time to scrub multiple pots and pans on a Thursday night when you’re trying to binge ShondaLand? Not me! This Tuscan White Bean Soup couldn’t […]

It’s Friiiiiday! Who’s ready for Valentine’s weekend? Even if you don’t have a special someone in your life, it’s a great excuse to hang out with friends, drink wine and eat lots of cookies (okay, maybe that’s just what I would do). Travis and I are celebrating on Saturday night, a day early, mainly because both of us prefer to eat at home on Sunday nights. It also helps that we […]

Valentine’s Day is on Sunday! Travis and I never typically go out to eat on the actual day because we try to avoid the restaurant madness (and fixed-price menus!). So Travis and I have plans to go out on Saturday night instead, and then we’ll likely stay at home and cook together on Sunday night. Every year I like to bake something for Valentine’s Day, but baking for Travis can be tricky because […]

Imperial Valley and Coachella Valley Farm Tour

Hi guys! I never post on Saturdays, but after a crazy week I just couldn’t get this post up on Friday. So here I am! It’s the weekend, YAY! After two weekends of travel and tons going on at work, I am so happy to be home right now and catch up on the one million things on my to-do list. On Monday, I mentioned I would share all of the details of […]

Hi friends! Happy Monday! Whew, I am exhausted after my trip this weekend. I got to spend the last couple of days with some fellow awesome female bloggers as we toured farms in the Coachella  Valley and Imperial Valley in California! The tour was organized by the California Farm Water Coalition, in an effort to create more awareness of the water issues California farmers face every day (and especially during our current drought).

Washington DC Trip - littlechefbigappetite.com

When I last left you guys, I mentioned how I thought my flight to DC was going to be canceled because of the big snow storm, Jonas, that hit the East coast last week. Well, I ended up being able to get on an earlier flight, so I got into Washington DC on Friday morning right before all of the snow madness hit the city. The timing worked out perfectly […]
