#MealPrep…Tuesday? | My # 1 Struggle

#MealPrep…Tuesday? | My # 1 Struggle

I hate soggy veggies. I mean, I don't LOVE vegetables in general (though I'm learning), but if they're leftover, limp, overcooked, or otherwise past their prime, I consider them pretty much inedible. That's why, as I mentioned in a previous meal prep post, I have never been a big fan of meal prepping. In fact, [...]

Meal Prep Monday: Recipes and Inspiration for the Week Ahead

Meal Prep Monday: Recipes and Inspiration for the Week Ahead

I'm not a big "meal prepper," but yesterday, I spent most of the afternoon planning meals, shopping, and cooking. My husband was shocked.

#FoodinFilm Blogathon (Day 3): A Simple, Easy Watch Party Menu for “Chef”

On Friday, Rebecca over at Taking Up Room wrote about the food from Gilmore Girls. Today, my post is inspired by Lorelai and Rory's food-focused movie nights.

#FoodinFilm Blogathon (Day 1): Food Trucks and Multiculturalism

When I heard about the Food in Film Blogathon, the first movie that popped into my mind was Chef, starring Jon Favreau. My husband and I have always loved food trucks; our first date was a visit to the Kogi BBQ truck, and it meant so much to us that we had them cater our wedding. [...]

Cozy Fall Soup Recipe Roundup

In Southern California, our weather is pretty great year-round, but I definitely get tired of the heat. The highest temperature predicted this week is 86 degrees, so we are getting close to soup-and-scarf weather, and I couldn't be more excited. I can't wait to dive spoon-first into a steaming bowl of soup! Today, I'm sharing [...]

#NationalTacoDay Recipe Roundup

#NationalTacoDay Recipe Roundup

Uh, guys...why is National Taco Day on a Wednesday and not a TUESDAY? I love a good excuse to eat tacos. Generally, "Taco Tuesday" is enough of an excuse, but I suppose I can make "Taco Wednesday" work...if I have to. Today, I'm sharing a couple of taco-related products that I love plus three tried-and-true [...]
