Avocado Toast with Spicy Black Bean Burger Strips

August 11, 2014

One of the highlights of my weekend was taking advantage of Summer Streets – think car-free running down Park Avenue all the way to the Brooklyn Bridge. It also happened to be my first true long run since I ran the Big Sur Marathon Relay, oh about three and a half months ago.

Honey Lime Chicken Skewers

After last weekend’s triathlon I suspected I’d feel like I’d want to reward myself with a giant ice cream cone once we got home from the race.  Except that’s not exactly how things played out.  I wanted to want ice cream.  Like, really wanted to want it.  Instead I had a super intense craving for […]

Cumin Scented Beef Kabobs

Kabobs are one of those dinners that get lost in the shuffle for me. And, it’s really unfortunate because there’s so much to love about them.

Blue Apron for Busy Weeks

You know those times when you go to the grocery and only need to pick up a few things.  Literally, just a few things.  You momentarily debate whether or not to grab a basket, but ultimately opt against because it doesn’t seem worth it when all you’re picking up is a carton of milk and […]

I’ve been a little distracted lately.  I can’t believe it’s May already, and that the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo are staring us in the face.  Instead of preparing for mint juleps, margaritas and guac, I’ve been up to my eyeballs in freekeh.
