February 21, 2017 4 comments

Hello from Amsterdam! We arrived here on Sunday evening and are loving everything so far. We’re headed to the Anne Frank House this morning, but before we go, I wanted to stop by to say hi to you guys and share some highlights from our time in Paris last week. It was Travis’s first time in Paris, so he wanted to make sure he saw all of the main attractions, and I […]

I Quit My Corporate Job to Travel Across Europe. And You Can Too! ll www.littlechefbigappetite.com

In all honesty, I’ve started and stopped writing this post so many times in the last week. Little Chef Big Appetite has always been about my recipes, healthy eating, and tidbits of my daily life. I know you guys aren’t coming here to read about my career or philosophies on life. But, over the course of the last month there have been a couple of big changes in my life […]

Brown Ale Marinated Hanger Steak with Caramelized Onions Recipe -- Perfect for a Cozy Date Night In! ll www.littlechefbigappetite.com

I don’t know about you, but I always prefer to stay in on Valentine’s Day, rather than go out to eat. Sometimes Travis and I will go out to dinner the weekend before February 14th, so we can avoid paying crazy prices for prix-fixe menus at our favorite restaurants. But on Valentine’s Day evening we always prefer to open up a bottle of wine at home and cook a delicious meal together. When […]

We recently started incorporating pureed pumpkin into Bessie’s food after we read that it can help reduce itchiness and stop […]

FITzee Foods Delivers Healthy Pre-Portioned Meals

FITzee Foods Review l www.littlechefbigappetite.com

Last month I had the opportunity to try FITzee Foods, a healthy pre-portioned meal delivery service. FITzee is different from services like Blue Apron and Plated because the meals arrived already prepared, and all you have to do is heat them up.  So that means no grocery shopping, meal planning, or cooking.   Admittedly, when FITzee Foods reached out to me about trying their service, at first I wasn’t sure if […]

Hi friends, happy Monday! Did you enjoy your extra hour of sleep over the weekend? As nice as I thought it was on Sunday morning, I was super bummed when I looked out the window last night at 5PM and saw that it was dark already. Wah! Where did all the daylight goooo!? Since I’m now in total fall mode (despite it being 80 degrees in Santa Monica tomorrow…), I’ve got […]

This Sunday night begins the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. It’s a tradition to eat apples and honey on Rosh Hashanah as a way of wishing for a sweet new year. In honor of the holiday, I asked some of my blogger friends to share their favorite healthy apple recipes. Even if you’re not celebrating the holiday this weekend, these recipes are all perfect for fall, when apples are […]

Hey hey! Travis and I are back from a weekend away at Big Bear Lake, CA. My birthday was last Wednesday, and since having a mid-week birthday is never that fun, we decided to plan a last minute weekend getaway. We spent a majority of our time in Big Bear doing outdoor activities, like hiking and kayaking. It’s only two hours away from LA (without traffic), so it was a perfect little 36 […]
