This pineapple salsa chicken officially solidifies July 2018 as the month of pineapple recipes, y’all. Last week, I shared these pineapple jalapeno mimosas and the week before was two-ingredient pineapple nice cream. There’s no real reason for all of this except that I particularly love […]
This dish has flavors from all over so I’m not quite sure how to categorize it cuisine-wise. You’ve got ginger, coconut, lime, red pepper, and curry, which evoke Southeast Asian, Caribbean, and West African feels so *insert shrug emoji here*. It’s a little sweet, spicy, […]
My Aunty Toyin’s recipe is the best you’ll ever taste.
A quick and easy, one-pot pasta meal perfect for weeknight dinners and workweek lunches in under 30 minutes!
Coming back to work after the holiday hiatus has been a little harsh. Because I am starting completely new projects at work this month, it reminded me of those winter breaks back in college when your routine is turned upside down (read: sleeping til whenever) and […]
I mentioned my semi-homemade streak last year in this post and am slightly embarrassed to say that it continued whenever I made something involving marinara-like sauce. My go-to was a store brand to which I would add my own spices because whenever I consulted my […]
Make better homemade salads with this collection of simple tips, an easy & good-for-you apple cider vinaigrette dressing recipe. After a sobering swimsuit try-on session and a horrifying facial break out, I recently committed to eating more greens. Fruits and veggies, especially dark, leafy greens, are […]
I mentioned my adult braces struggle last year in this post, which also happened to feature a crockpot recipe. Although I am just a couple of months away from the finish line, my orthodontist is “detailing” and “refining” my bite so…pain. Cue the smoothies, applesauce, […]
I love Pinterest. About three years ago I crawled out from under my little rock and got started pinning about everything from cooking to cleaning to fashion to money management. That is where I came across a relatively simple recipe for spaghetti carbonara. Before then, […]
I like to be organized. Color-coding, alphabetizing, categorizing…I like all of these things. On this ideal December Sunday, I have gone to church, clipped coupons, done my grocery shopping, meal-prepped lunches and picked out my work clothes for the week. 🙂 Things don’t always work out […]
Today is Black Friday, which elicits images of long lines wrapped around mass retail stores full of people chomping at the bit to get inside and spend their money on “unbelievable” deals. Today is like the Olympics of shopping for some and possibly the worst work […]
I LOVE boneless chicken breast. It’s so versatile and non-fussy, but it has a bad reputation for being dry. I’ve found that chicken breast isn’t inherently dry, though. The culprit is overcooking. The method used here was derived from a Pinterest post in which the author […]
You might be asking yourself “What makes these Hawaiian?” These sliders were birthed deep in the heaaaarrrrt of Texas (any true Texan sang that as they read), but fresh, seared pineapples + King’s Hawaiian rolls + the need for a catchy name = Hawaiian Turkey Burger Sliders. […]
Have you ever tasted something both familiar and unexpected at the same time? When I first made this stir fry, I was looking to create something flavorful and different from anything I had made or tasted before. None of the sauce recipes I found seemed quite […]
As the new year sets in, many of us are starting anew–whether it be new jobs, new semesters in school, or approaching familiar situations with new vigor. On the cusp of each year, people everywhere make resolutions related to fitness and health. With that in […]
