Weeknight Garlic and Herb Crispy Roast Chicken Breasts

This weekend I tackled the dreaded closet switch-over. The second I got started, I sort of wished I hadn’t. Until I found my navy & white vest from Stitch Fix earlier in the year. I cannot wait to wear it! Bring on all the fall things! Since I was in full on fall mode, it […]

Pasta with Homemade Creamy Tomato Sauce (Vegan)

September 9, 2014
Not much beats a big plate of pasta with Homemade (Vegan) Creamy Tomato Sauce...especially when you can get it on the table in 30 minutes! |

  I remember when I discovered that I could substitute applesauce for oil in making muffins. It pretty much felt like I struck gold. I was also a little baffled as to why everyone wasn’t already doing this. I mean, it seemed like a total win-win. Until I took one bite of those muffins. Uh, […]

This simple vegan and gluten free Sweet Pepper and Mushroom Soba Noodle Stir Fry is fresh, delicious and you

Say hello to my new favorite 20-minute dinner – Vegan Sweet Pepper and Mushroom Soba Noodle Stir Fry. The alternate title was here’s-everything-in-my-fridge-that-needs-to-get-eaten-before-we-go-away-for-the-long-weekend-stir-fry. Just didn’t have the same ring as the actual title. A little too long, perhaps? Yea, I kinda thought so too. Last week was an awkward week in terms of cooking. After […]

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. Oops. To celebrate, […]

A super belated thank you for your well wishes on last weekend’s triathlon!

Honey Lime Chicken Skewers are a wonderfully simple weeknight meal and so incredibly delicious!| #weeknightdinner

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. So, I’m on a mission to change that!  I also just found a zillion wooden skewers in my kitchen. Mostly though, kabobs are the ideal summer dinner.  Simple, and […]

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 […]
