Edamame & Quinoa Salad

Like so many of my recipes, this meal was born out of necessity. I was short on time. I was freakin' hot in my apartment (I live in an older complex and during the summer the AC can't keep up with the Texas heat). So I popped my head into the fridge to see what… Continue reading Edamame & Quinoa Salad

Cheesy pasta is always a good idea in my book. One of the first meals I learned how to make is stuffed pasta shells. To use the famous wording of Friends character Chandler Bing, could it BE anymore easy? You basically just cook the pasta shells, stuff them, bake them, eat them! All you really… Continue reading Easy Cheesy Stuffed Pasta Shells

Sausage and Bell Pepper Frittata

Brinner = Breakfast + Dinner I love having breakfast foods for meals other than breakfast time. Pancakes for lunch? Yes! Eggs for dinner? Yes 100%! Not only is whipping up a frittata easy, but you can use any leftovers for breakfast and save previous morning time. It's a win-win. I added sausage to this frittata… Continue reading Sausage and Bell Pepper Frittata

Build A Satisfying Oatmeal Bowl In 5 Minutes

Can you remember the first time you ate oatmeal? I do! It gave a bad first impression! I did not grow up eating oatmeal. It just was not a part of our food repertoire. Instead, I would eat foods like eggs or cereal for breakfast. At some point in my early adult life, living on… Continue reading Build A Satisfying Oatmeal Bowl In 5 Minutes

All About Quinoa

Quinoa is a highly nutritious whole grain that comes in three colors: white, red, and black. It is also gluten-free, making it an option for celiac disease patients. Fast Quinoa… Continue reading All About Quinoa

Avocado Salsa

You might be wondering "isn't this guacamole?" Well, it's not. Guacamole traditionally includes cilantro and raw onions, two foods I do not like. Guacamole is also not traditionally made with hot peppers. Also, guacamole is traditionally creamy/smashed. Before I continue to over-use the word "traditionally," let's move on... This avocado salsa makes a great dip… Continue reading Avocado Salsa

Taco Bowl

It is human nature to want to take shortcuts. In some areas of life, shortcuts can lead to disastrous results (never try to take shortcuts with your taxes, for example). But in cooking, shortcuts can be a lifesaver! One of my favorite ways to make meals easier is to batch-cook rice. If you cook between… Continue reading Taco Bowl

Caesar Pasta Salad

The holidays are a wonderful time of year, a time to enjoy traditional foods. For us, that's tamales and pozole. But after a few days of eating the same thing over and over again, with little to no veggies, your body might begin to crave something else. That is exactly what happened to me the… Continue reading Caesar Pasta Salad

Nourishing Eggs, Beans, and Rice Bowl

Pinto beans were, and as an adult continue to be, a household staple in my childhood home. I remember thinking from a young age that beans keep you strong and healthy- that was the perception imparted on me! There's rice under all those toppings, I promise! Now, as a nutrition student, I've come to realize… Continue reading Nourishing Eggs, Beans, and Rice Bowl
