Melt in your mouth, Parmesean Chicken Breast

This is one of my favorite recipes I have made recently. It is quite indulgent, however it is extremely simple and tasty to make. Worth it. The easiness of cooking the whole meal at once is also pretty appealing to the beginner chefs out there. You can make this the night before you want to…

Blackberry Buttercream Frosting

  I made this cake for my friend Emily's birthday last weekend and felt like getting creative since she is quite the hostess. In honor of her royal themed birthday, I knew I had to make a cake fit for a queen and wanted to do something different. Naked cakes are very in right now and also…

Baja Shrimp Tacos

Shrimp Tacos don't need a long introduction.  I haven't done too much with shrimp in the past so when my grocery store had a killer special on fresh shrimp, I decided to get outside my comfort zone. Frozen shrimp works as well, just make sure you de-thaw before you cook. This recipe is an easy base for the…

Blueberry Mango Salsa Fresca

"Extra, extra, pico, please", is my only request, every time I eat Mexican, since as long as I can remember. Sometimes, I even look forward to the pico more than the actual meal. I love everything about pico de gallo, the freshness of the chopped veggies, the bursts of flavor.. pico is just awesome. I am…

Sriracha Crema Sauce

The perfect addition to top off any taco, is this sauce I created with some inspiration from the internet and local rotisserie spots. You probably have everything in your fridge for it already and it takes just moments to make! It reminds me of the amazingly creamy sauces you can get from any peruvian chicken…

Corn and Black Bean Salad

This simple mixture of goodness has been incorporated into a lot of meals I have made this year. It has accompanied some of my crock pot creations, been used as a side with my meals and also enjoyed as a snack.   It takes minutes to make and is very inexpensive, even with organic produce.  If you're…

Jane’s Basic Base Tomato Sauce

I have an instant connection with anyone who loves their sauces as much as I do. Seriously, extra sauce on EVERYTHING please! My coworker Andrea and I have texted each other mid pizza bite to discuss how people who don't enjoy extra sauce on their pizza, are probably not enjoying life. Extra saucy is the way to…

Crustless White Cheddar and Bacon Quiche

    Breakfast is a meal I am guilty of not giving enough attention to. I am not the biggest bruncher (gasp, I know) and I am not a morning person, so the extra sleep option always wins. I do like my two eggs scrambled in the am, so this recipe spices up my morning…

Guilt Free & Healthy, Crockpot Chicken Fajitas

I'm stoked to share this recipe with you because: #1 it's a crockpot recipe, #2 it's more delicious and 100 times healthier than the fajitas they drench in oil at Mexican restaurants and #3 it takes 10 minutes to prepare. The #fajitaeffect. My friend Emily T. came over this week to watch the season finale of the…

Jane’s Jolly Jell-O Shots

  I love living in the district as a 25 year old and am surrounded with the most amazing, supportive and beautiful friends. Being able to celebrate the season with them and indulge on the best homemade food & drink always makes for the perfect amount of holiday cheer. I decided to create my favorite Jell-O shot recipe for my friend's white…
