Roasted Red Pepper Asiago Cheese Dip

Cheese is quite possibly the greatest food of all time. If you don’t love it, we can’t be friends. No actually we will be friends- I’ll eat the cheese for both of us #glutton. UCLA, I found your cheese. I recently learned about PDO Asiago Cheese. And it tastes SO good. Especially with a nice glass of red wine. Olivia Pope style. You…

Frozen Chocolate Banana Bites

Frozen Chocolate Banana Bites This recipe is inspired by my friend and her family as they are OBSESSED with Banana Babies (those mini chocolate covered bananas on a stick). Whenever I visit, they are always in the fridge and we always end up eating them all. They are also sold at Trader Joes as chocolate covered banana…

Berry Love Trifle. Dessert BLT.

  Trifles are a staple summertime dessert. They’re sooooo good and so un-nutritious. Yep, made that word up. You love it. You’ll also love- this healthy version of layered goodness. It’s gluten/wheat free and replaces sugary messes with more beneficial messes. You’re going to need to make BAM muffins in a cake form first. But this recipe’s super easy. That’s…

Healthy-ish Lemon Cheesecake (Wheat-free & Gluten-free)

Cheese is delicious. Cake is delicious. Cheesecake, oh my gosh, whoever  invented that should get an award. It’s totally not healthy though. Surprise! I know you all thought it was… hah. Typically, it’s loaded with cream cheese, sugar, sour cream in addition to a graham cracker crust averaging around 500 calories per slice. Spoiler Alert: an…

Ging-ah Curry Chicken

Chicken with a kick. I LOVE this, 1. because I love spices (obviously) and 2. because these specific spices are incredibly beneficial towards your health. These spices are beneficial for a multitude of health reasons, some being that they give your metabolism a boost, act as an antioxidant, improve your cardiovascular system specifically in reducing…

Kale Pesto

YAY, this was delicious. So two things. 1.) I know I’m not the first to make a kale pesto- but this is an original. As a common tread, I once again didn’t like the ones I was trying from the internet. I had pretty low expectations when I made this, but it magically became one…

G-ma’s Chunky Tomato Sauce

Straight from Alanno-scalo Italy- I present to you: my grandmother’s quick and easy chunky tomato sauce (I call her G-ma, you can too). As pictured to the left- my super Italian grandparents in Italy. Yes, G-pa looks like he’s in the mob. He’s probably not. I assure you. About this sauce. It’s great to make as…

Steamed Broccoli with Pine Nuts

“Eat your broccoli; it’s good for you.” I was a weird little kid so my mom didn’t really have to say that to me, ever. I was too busy pretending to be a Brachiosaurus dinosaur  that had to chomp all the tops off of the trees (more commonly known as broccoli florets). Weird, but healthy. Right. So I’m…

Caveman Breakfast Cups

I recently visited my friend Amanda in Seattle (yes we have the same name, taught at the same school, and lived in the same apartment complex just by chance), and while I was visiting, we made these delicious caveman-satisfying breakfast cups for her carnivorous husband. They’re simple and super easy. I usually make them the…
