Greek Yogurt Bagels

It’s gonna be…. oh wait, it’s already May.  Flowers blooming, trees budding, it’s finally Spring! Now that the weather is cooperating, exercising outside is a must. Running outside most definitely beats running on a treadmill. The scenery alone makes it much easier run more miles at a time. There are just so many more activities…

Shrimp Burrito Bowl

BIG WEEK friends. Moving is tiresome, I’m sure all of you agree with that statement. Even with movers, it’s just a long process. I’ve moved countless times over the past 5 years or so. But it’s a good move and so incredibly happy, especially now that it’s over 😉 Anyways, another thing we can probably…

Fire Feta Dip

Ladies nights are a staple in my friend group. We try to do them once a week; Whether it’s going out for happy hour or it’s a movie, in our PJ’s, drinking wine, like adults do. They are a fabulous bunch of women and I feel very lucky to call them friends. Ladies night are…

Mediterranean Pasta

Pasta pasta pasta. Super easy to make and can be paired with a lot of different flavored sauces. When I was younger, I preferred my pasta with butter and parmesan cheese. No sauce, which in my family, was seen as very odd. My brother only liked meatballs and sauce. We did eventually grow out of…

When exhaustion sets in…

We are winding down on these wintry months, thankfully! Another giant snowstorm last week, almost didn’t make our flight out! Alexa and I went to go see my Mom, she moved to NC in July. Now the weather down there, awesome! 55 degrees and sunny, sounds perfect for March. We explored the American Tobacco District…

Meatballs Gone Wild, part 1

Happy Friday Everyone! This has been a week of comfort foods. When the weather is so rainy and gloomy, there is nothing better than a home-cooked comfort meal. Comfort foods are different for everyone. Anywhere from mashed potatoes, mac n cheese, a big bowl of beef stew; all of which are delicious. My personal favorite…

Breakfast, it’s what’s for dinner.

Breakfast foods are fantastic. The best part is you can eat them at any time of the day: breakfast, brunch, lunch, and my personal favorite, for dinner. After a long day at work, there is just something comforting about a big stack of pancakes and a side of bacon. Yum.  And let’s be honest, bacon…

Easy Chicken/Veggie Stir Fry

Hello all, Here we go again! I am really committing to this blog now. It’s been almost a year, third times a charm or so I’ve heard 😉 A lot has changed, my two pups and I have moved into a cute little one bedroom apartment in the city. We are loving it! They have…

Greek Yogurt Blueberry Scones

In the Summer of 2015, I was training for my first half marathon. It was the healthiest I had been since my soccer playing days growing up. I was running about 15 miles a week and I was hungry all the time! I was eating every 2-3 hours, so I had to start coming up…

Buffalo Chicken Mac N Cheese

Most nights I have some idea of what I want to cook for dinner. Chicken, veggies, and potatoes is pretty standard in our house. This past Friday, I was not sure what sounded good for dinner. I had ideas of making mini burgers and buffalo chicken sliders. It had sounded good but not quite what…

The Wooden Spoon.

It all began with this woman right here. My Grandma Dean. That is her holding me on her 70th birthday. I am the youngest grandchild out of five. My Grandma became my first best friend. She had me cooking in her kitchen as soon as I was old enough to get up on a stool. I…
