Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Parmesan

I've got to brag on myself a little bit here. I had been feeling pretty unmotivated lately when it comes to the gym. I haven't been in two weeks!

I was going to go to the grocery store and decided to stop by my kryptonite (Ulta) beforehand. Did that, spent way too much money, then went across the street to get… Continue reading Garlic Butter Steak Tips with Mushrooms

Green Bean Salad with Hearts of Palm

I love that my local grocery store has a little fresh olive bar in the produce section. I bought a handful of super green olives yesterday, and they may be the best I've ever had. They've also got roasted garlic cloves, marinated mushrooms (personal fave), and sometimes dolmas. I'm now slightly obsessed with that olive… Continue reading Green Bean Salad with Hearts of Palm
