I tried something new today. I turned my morning routine upside down. I'm the poster child of routine-following. I do the same thing everyday at the same times: 9-10 a.m.: wake up. Immediately grab phone and peruse social media 10:30 a.m.: actually get out of bed. Try to write a blog post/watch TV. 11 a.m.:… Continue reading Margherita Chicken & Zucchini
I'm an advertising executive's dream. I get suckered into Instagram and Facebook ads all the time. I'll find myself swiping through pictures of things I never knew I needed for hours...oh, wait. I don't need them. It appears an advertisers influence over my purchasing skills is quite potent. The grocery store is no different. I… Continue reading Italian Country Breakfast Bake

I have been able to make up… Continue reading Pesto Caprese Chicken Casserole

God, I miss carbs. The main way I turn sandwiches into keto-fied version is making lettuce wraps. I'm not pick when… Continue reading California Club Wraps
A classic Italian salad beefed up to an entree. Marinate chicken with balsamic vinegar, basil and mustard and then grill. Toss in mozzarella pearls, cherry tomatoes and avocado for an added punch!
I feel like you could stuff a pepper with anything and it would taste good. I've done buffalo chicken & quinoa, Philly cheesesteak, and the classic version with ground beef and tomatoes. I mean, seriously. Can you think of something that wouldn't taste good stuffed into a pepper? Ice cream, probably. I don't think ice… Continue reading Lasagna Stuffed Peppers
