January 21, 2016 12 comments

Well friends, I had fun travel plans scheduled for this upcoming weekend, but I think they might be foiled by the ridiculous blizzard that’s about to hit the east coast. Tomorrow morning, I am supposed to fly to Washington DC to visit my BFF Emily, who is getting married in 9 short months! The plan was to do some wedding dress shopping and snuggle up on the couch with a good bottle of […]

I am just going to put it out there that I know it is completely unfair of me to post a recipe that I made on the grill, when many of you guys are freezing your hineys off in other parts of the country (I am looking at YOU, Buffalo, NY!). So, yea… sorry about that. Buuuuuut, I include TWO cooking methods below: on the grill and in the oven […]

My Favorite Healthy Frozen Foods // littlechefbigappetite.com

Hi friends! Happy Friday! I am traveling for work today, but I wanted to post this for you guys before your weekend grocery shopping. Over the past few years, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the variety of healthy foods I’ve found in the freezer aisle. For years, all you could find were Lean Cuisines and Healthy Choice frozen dinners that disguise themselves as “healthy,” but in reality are swimming in sodium and […]

Paper Planner - 2016 Goals

Happy 2016! I hope you guys had a great night on NYE whether you went out or stayed in. We spent NYE at our friend’s house, celebrating with delicious food and, of course, plenty of champagne. Travis and I kept things pretty low-key during the day on January 1st. Keeping with our recent New Year’s Day tradition, we got brunch at one of our favorite local restaurants, The Misfit. There may or may not have been […]

Paso Robles Trip

Hi guys! I hope you had a great holiday week! I took a good old detox from blogging and much of social media, and it felt SO GOOD to just be in the moment. We took a short trip to Paso Robles, CA to do a bit of wine tasting from Tuesday to Thursday last week. Neither of us had ever been, but we’d heard such great things about the […]

Gingerbread Smoothie Recipe - Vegan and Gluten-Free

The holiday season turns me into a cookie monster! Everywhere I turn there are cookies and sweet treats: our office, holiday parties, ahhh! Give me aaaaall the cookies. But seriously, I have little self control around dessert, so I make an effort not to keep any in the house during the holidays because there are enough temptations elsewhere. That means, when I have a sugar craving or need something sweet after a meal, […]

Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes Recipe

I am leaving for Boston tonight and I am SO stinking excited! Thanksgiving is my family’s favorite holiday. We all look forward to this week every year. All of the out of town guests stay at my parents’ house, so it’s like a big ol’ family reunion every time. The best! Bessie is flying with us, too. It will be her third time on a plane in a year – our little girl is […]
