It’s #Skinny Guac O’Clock time

This is a recipe that has taken me quite a few times to master but I finally figured out the avocado to non-fat greek yogurt ratio. What's great about this is that it not only lightens up your normal guacamole dip, but it also doubles it in size. #yaaaas Guacamole is fun, you can add all … Continue reading It’s #Skinny Guac O’Clock time

Skinny Ranch Taco Crackerole [lettucewraps]

Hello my friends, it has been too long but the accidental hiatus is (hopefully) over. Although I have not posted in quite some time (you can thank nursing school for that*into my final year this fall*), I have still been in the kitchen experimenting with some deliciously healthy food alternatives, great for diets and meal … Continue reading Skinny Ranch Taco Crackerole [lettucewraps]

The Most Delicious Turkey Chili

April in the District has brought us the usual gorgeous blooms, however, mother nature has thrown us a cold front this week and I feel there is no better way to combat the cold than with a bowl of delicious chili. I often make chili in the crockpot since you can't really go wrong with … Continue reading The Most Delicious Turkey Chili

Pink Vodka Sauce

This is a hefty batch of pink vodka sauce but it is definitely worth the freezer space. I enjoy going to Eastern Market, my favorite neighborhood marketplace and picking out a new handmade ravioli to try with a meat from their butcher and a cheese from the Maître Fromager. I love their pasta sauces as well but wanted … Continue reading Pink Vodka Sauce

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 … Continue reading Melt in your mouth, Parmesean Chicken Breast

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 … Continue reading Blackberry Buttercream Frosting

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 … Continue reading Baja Shrimp Tacos

Blizzard 2016, Capitol Hill DC

I am so happy I grew up in a place that has four seasons. Even though I am part mermaid (a certified beach bum for life) I turn into a snow bunny the second cold weather comes around. I absolutely love snow and nothing is prettier than snow in the District, especially Capitol Hill. My … Continue reading Blizzard 2016, Capitol Hill DC

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 … Continue reading Blueberry Mango Salsa Fresca
