    Salsa Fresca Chicken

    I hope you’re all having a good weekend so far! Today I’m sharing a recipe for Salsa Fresca Chicken. I found the recipe on Pinterest last year and mostly followed it. I made my own pico de gallo consisting of: red onion, lime juice, roma tomatoes, garlic, and jalapeno. For the recipe you’ll need: boneless, skinless chicken breast cumin salt black pepper garlic powder pico de gallo shredded monterey jack cheese The recipe also has you sprinkling fresh cilantro on top, but if you’ve been following me on here for a while you know I can’t stand cilantro so I left that out. The recipe is so easy, but does…

    Kraft Dressings

    I eat salads either as a meal or as a side to a meal at least twice a week so when I got sent 2 new Kraft dressings I was excited to try them out. I got the Lemon Herb Vinaigrette and the Aged Balsamic. I’ve tried both and I like them both! The lemon herb isn’t sour, but does have a little zing to it. The aged balsamic is a little sweeter, but not too sweet which is good. Both are light and refreshing for summer! *I was sent these products complimentary, but all opinions are my own.

    Ham & Chive Scrambled Omelet

    Today, I’m sharing a really easy side dish or small meal that is an old favorite/comfort food. When my mom makes Chinese food (unless we’re eating noodles or something like that) it usually consists of white rice and an assortment of 3-5 side dishes. One thing I’ve eaten throughout my life is eggs with some sort of meat and a vegetable. It can vary. Sometimes it’s got roast pork and string bean niblets. Sometimes, like how I’m making it here, it is chives and ham. I took these photos last year when I decided to make this ham & chive (sort of) omelet to bring to work for lunch with…

    Spicy Kale & Portobello Tacos

    Do you ever use the website/app Yummly? I first discovered it about 2 years ago. I mostly use Pinterest, but occasionally I’ll check Yummy out. What I love about that app is that you can search for recipes by ingredients which I find really helpful when I’ve got leftover ingredients in the fridge that I need to use up. So 2 years ago I had leftover adobo sauce and baby bella (baby portobello) mushrooms so I searched Yummly for a recipe. I found a taco recipe using portobellos, adobo, and kale. Perfect since I also had kale! I followed the recipe above except I just eyeballed the amount of ingredients since…

    Zespri SunGold Kiwi

    I’m a huge fruit lover and I try to eat fruit every day. I’ve never had a a SunGold Kiwi before so when I got sent 2 from Zespri to try, I was excited. The SunGold Kiwi is a hybrid of a regular green kiwi and a gold fruit (according to my online search) and is not genetically modified or anything. The kiwis came with a little knife/spoon tool where you can cut the kiwi open and then scoop it out to eat, but I prefer slicing my kiwis. The kiwi was really delicious! Sometimes I find regular green kiwis to have an acidic aftertaste, but the SunGold didn’t have…

    Ice Cream

    What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream? I go through phases of what my favorite is and I can go for months or a year even of just eating that flavor. I like pretty classic flavors and vanilla will always be a go-to for me, but I also love mint chocolate chip, cookie dough, cookies and cream, butter pecan, tin roof sundae, and more. Last summer I was on a real pistachio almond kick. These photos with me and my mint chocolate chip cone, sprinkle clutch, and chambray jumpsuit is from last summer when we could go out to the ice cream parlors sans mask.

    Honey Mustard Brussels Sprouts Salad

    How was everyone’s 4th? Since many of you may have been grilling and/or eating lots of food yesterday I thought I’d share a salad today. I found this delicious honey mustard brussels sprouts salad last year on Pinterest and it’s perfect for detoxing after all the food yesterday. I followed the recipe exactly except I used shaved brussels sprouts from the grocery store because they were out of fresh brussels sprouts. I also quartered the recipe since it was just for me. For the recipe you’ll need: brussels sprouts dried cranberries pecans red wine vinegar dijon mustard salt pepper garlic powder onion powder honey olive oil Since I got shaved…

    June 2020 Favorites

    Can you believe it’s already the end of June? This has been the weirdest year ever. We’re more than halfway through 2020 and we’ve been in lockdown or in some sort of quarantine for almost 4 of those months. I have a few favorites from this month to share. It’s actually a pretty short list. First, I’ve mentioned this before and if you follow my Instagram Stories, then you know I’ve been trying to go for daily walks whenever the weather is good. When I was working from home during the last 3 months of school, I knew I had to get out for walks. It was good to get…

    Southwest Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

    Most people would associate sweet potatoes with fall, but I love sweet potatoes any time of year. The recipe I’m sharing today I found via Pinterest almost 2 years ago and I’ve made a handful of times. It’s a Southwest Stuffed Sweet Potato. It is so tasty and filling. I can eat it with just a small side salad or something and be good for a meal. It’s also great to bring to work for lunch. I just pop a potato in the microwave and it heats up really well. For the recipe you’ll need: sweet potatoes olive oil black beans corn salsa lime juice cumin salt & pepper crushed…

    BLT Style Panini

    I’m calling this a “BLT Style” Panini because instead of lettuce, I used spinach and I also included pepper jack cheese. For this panini, I used a griddler/panini press. I built my sandwich with ciabatta, baby spinach, tomato, bacon, and pepper jack cheese. Then, I pressed it in the griddler until it was heated through and the cheese started to melt. So easy! Easy lunch or weeknight meal!
