Mozzarella and Goat Cheese Stuffed Beef Hamburgers

Recently I’ve been craving a hamburger. Not one of those you can get from McDonald’s or even a restaurant, but one I could make on my own and add WHATEVER I wanted to it. Some years ago, I made some cheese stuffed burgers, but it didn’t turn out like I wanted it to. Why? One…

Homemade Cilantro and Parsley Pizza Dough

Pizza, Pizza, Pizza. lt’s ALWAYS all about the pizza! That’s my opinion anyway. When eating pizza, I’m always fascinated about the dough. It is too soft? Too dry? Not tasty enough? Too much spices? There’s a reason why if I’m ordering pizza, there is probably 1

Parsley and Cashew Pesto

I’ve been eyeing the pesto at my local Farmer’s Market for awhile now, but can never buy it. The reason? Too expensive. I’m a cheapskate and I REFUSE to pay $5 or more for some pesto that I can easily make at home. For a long time I’ve been passively eyeing ingredients saying “Oh, they…

Honey Garlic Jalapeno Chicken

Lately, I’ve been trying to do the whole meal-prep thing. Some weeks it’s a success and other weeks I’m just like ” Bump it!” This past week I decided to use chicken for that week’s meal-prep. Only one problem….

30 Minutes or Less Honey Garlic Salmon

Hi everyone. It’s been a while. I’ve been trying to eat healthy lately (see the “trying” part) and it’s especially hard to do sometimes (or most times). When I come home from a long day of work, I┬ádon’t have the energy or desire to cook

Quick and Easy Blueberry Muffins

There are times when craving a muffin you have an image of the exact muffin that you want. Whether it’s the richness and goodness of a chocolate muffin, a craving for banana muffin, or the sweetness of a blueberry muffin. Today, it was all about the blueberry muffins. Luckily, I had blueberries to help satisfy…

Watermelon and Peach Lime Coolers

Watermelon used to be my go to “fruit” in the summer when I was younger. If I could get away with eating watermelons over apples, oranges, or other fruit, I was SOOO happy. There’s just something about eating watermelons and spitting out the seeds that

Salmon Tacos with Cilantro Lime Sour Cream Sauce

Happy Friday Eve! Okay, this week is a sad week for me because…. I started work again. After having 2 months off for summer vacation, it seemed too short yet too long at the same time. Anyway, enough of my whining. I have been craving salmon for a while (yes I’ve

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Hi! So I want to talk about leftovers. I LOVE leftovers. Coming from a big family, it’s hard to cook small portions of food when all I’ve known is cooking for five or more people. Because of this, I’ve mastered the art of

Chicken Rice Bowl

Rice Bowls are a easy and healthy go-to lunch or dinner. For many years, when eating at Chipotle or Moe’s, I’ve always wavered between the burrito or the rice bowl. It’s always a 50% chance whether I’d get the burrito or rice bowl. Since I was craving a rice bowl and didn’t want to spend…
