On Cornish Game Hens: A Thanksgiving Upgrade

Or downgrade if you think about the sizes we’re talking about…MINI CHICKENS!! And oh so good! Yup, just spoiled the ending of this post – DE-LICIOUS! It even came complete with stuffing!!! I was originally just going to make the stuffing and leave it to the next day, but then I realized I was halfway…

On Chicken & Chorizo Empanadas

Since moving and getting my adult side of life in sync again, I have been on a cooking BINGE! Also – meal planning, yeah, I’m a newfound convert! I know I tried meal planning before, but I did it wrong for my life, and by that I mean, I was meal planning so that I…

On Mussels Charmoula (Senate Style)

As if I haven’t done enough big adulting things this month, here’s my last bit of big news! THIS CHICK GOT A NEW JOB as a Marketing Coordinator for a law firm! Now, I can’t announce exactly where I’ll be working for another week (I do have a LinkedIn page for anyone interested in creeping…

On Trout and More Wedding Shinanigans

It is with a huge relief that I say wedding planning is wrapping up! (PHEW!) But what a journey! It’s now been over a year since we got engaged and started to plan our future together, and this past weekend was no exception. Frankie got his ring in on Thursday (CHECK!), Saturday morning I had…

On A Better Fried Chicken Sandwich

Since completing Whole30 with plans to go back to a Whole30-esque diet from here on out after the holidays until the wedding, one of our favorite fast food/late night meals was 100% ruined in the process: Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Sandwiches. We’ve tried them a couple times since whole30—always late at night, and always when we…

On BA’s Best Lasagna

I was hoping there would be an opportunity for me to host some friends and cook with them, and thankfully, when my friend Melissa asked for help in making bachelorette goodies/crafts, I figured we’d go ahead and make dinner too! We decided that we would make lasagna! Mm mm yay!!! There was one recipe in…

On Fish & Chips

If I’ve learned anything this year, it’s that I can only get better at different techniques with time and practice, and the only way to practice is to, well, cook! Especially for Alex, who is getting more confident and adventurous in the kitchen every time we cook, these FaceTime moments together are providing both of…

On A Summer Tomato Salad

This week, I really wanted to dive into some veggie-forward recipes because, 1) buying veggies tends to be a heck of a lot cheaper than buying meat, and 2) with our upcoming CSA experience in a little less than a month from now, I need to start scoping out some potential recipes to make the most…

On Bruschetta Bananza!

About two weeks ago, Alex & I changed up the game plan because of the warmer weather and decided to make a couple different bruschetta’s as part of a delicious and fairly light Sunday lunch/dinner! What a way to spend a Sunday afternoon! Not to mention that Frankie & I spent the evening on our porch…

On Seared Barramundi and Post-Whole30

If I haven’t already said it, and I’m pretty sure I have, Whole30 was indeed life-changing. Not only does junk food or fast food no longer taste the same, it’s no longer appealing either. Not that that’s a bad thing, because it totally isn’t (better on our budget and better on our waistbands too), but…
