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 … 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

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

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.

It reminds me of the amazingly creamy sauces you can get from any peruvian chicken … Continue reading Sriracha Crema Sauce

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 … Continue reading Jane’s Basic Base Tomato Sauce

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 … Continue reading Crustless White Cheddar and Bacon Quiche

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 … Continue reading Guilt Free & Healthy, Crockpot Chicken Fajitas

  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 … Continue reading Jane’s Jolly Jell-O Shots
