Strawberry Blueberry Spring Mix Salad

I love a good salad. There’s so many different types and ways to enjoy them. Heck, stuff them in a wrap and it can change the whole game. I’ve been craving a good steak salad lately. There was this awesome place when we use to live in Morgantown called Salad Works and it was THE BOMB. They would make steak on the spot for you for your salad. God I miss that place. Since moving, there’s really no good place that offers a quick salad to go close to where we live. Well, besides Panera. Panera can definitely be a great option, but it can also be a little pricey. I just prefer to make my own salads. This is one of my favorite warmer weather salads. It’s cool and refreshing, plus nourishing. Each time I make it, it always ends up a little different. Sometimes it’s changing out the lettuce for […]

Turkey Meatballs with Zucchini Noodles (Zoodles)

Are you following Rachael DeVaux? Because you totally should be. Rachael, aka Rachael’s Good Eats, is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist based in Washington (the state) who shares creative ideas and recipes for a healthy diet. Plus her Instagram is drool worthy. She has a pretty popular cashew chocolate chip cookie skillet that’s making IG go crazy. Ya girl is definitely trying that one next. I knew as soon as I saw Rachael share her behind the scenes of making her zoodles topped with organic turkey meatballs and cilantro avocado sauce I just had to give them a try. Unfortunately I didn’t have a lot of the ingredients Rachael used, but that’s what makes recipes so fun! You don’t have to follow the recipe. For the most part, I like to think of them as cool guidelines, but you can definitely be a rule breaker here. That’s what makes cooking so […]

Southwestern Turkey Chili

It’s a little hard to tell with all this crazy weather we’ve been having, but summer is quickly approaching! I loved summer because it was always associated with a more laid back style of life. No matter how crazy life got, I could count on summer to give me a breather. Summer was good for my soul. Fast-forward and now summer means everyone is gearing up for vacations aka work gets crazier trying to cover shifts because everyone’s tryna burn through that PTO. This summer is a little different though. I found out in early April that I matched to my first choice Dietetic Internship (eeeek!!). So that means I’ll be leaving my job mid-summer to prepare for the internship. Granted I’ve been working in the field since my last year of undergrad, but there’s so much my mind needs a good refresher on before jumping into the internship. It’s definitely […]

Homemade Pumpkin Spiced Chip Cookies

One of my favorite things about the food community is it seems there is always a national something day or month.  Last week hosted national homemade cookie day, so you know I had to celebrate accordingly. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get this post up on the day of or as soon as I would have liked due to traveling. What counts is I’m still going to share a delicious homemade cookie recipe with you! Not to brag, but cookies are my forte. Ya girl can make some bomb cookies. In college, my friends use to show up at my apartment with cookie supplies in hopes I would make them cookies. Every time I go to my parent’s, my mom asks me to make cookies. Anyone who is anyone knows moms always make food taste better, so you know you’ve successfully mastered a recipe when your mom has passed the torch onto you. MOMMA I MADE IT. There’s nothing […]
