Pizza and Salad

It is almost the weekend! How has your Thursday been treating you? It has been awesome over here!

I woke up this morning ready to tackle a tempo run! I have a love/hate relationship with speed workouts these days. The “hate” portion is because they are physically and mentally tough, but the love portion is because I [...]

Grilled Vegetable Salad

There is something about grilled vegetables that just screams summer. To me, grilling vegetables is one of the best ways to prepare them. It just seems to enhance the flavors. Plus, it is certainly a simple preparation. Who doesn’t like a meal that is simple and comes together quickly? A few nights ago, I decided to [...]

Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan Challenge

Me and Ashlei are starting a new challenge

We are going to cook our way through the cookbook Eat, Drink, and be Vegan. The inspiration started after watching the movie Julia and Julia while also becoming obsessed with the cookbook Eat, Drink, and be Vegan during the same time period. After watching the movie, we [...]

Halibut En Papillote

I am sorry for the lack of updating this past week! Maybe it has actually been more than a week? However long it has been, it was way too long. Last week consisted of studying for finals and working my booty off at work to make some money (which I have none of after booking a [...]

Shrimp and Scallops over Quinoa

I seriously love quinoa! I bought a big bag of it in the bulk bins at Whole Foods a few weeks ago and I have been making it a lot. It is so versatile and I use it as a substitution for anything I would use rice/pasta/ect…

Two nights ago, I wanted to make a seafood pasta [...]

Filet Mignon with Blender Bearnaise

I made some steak the other night because I had a serious red meat craving. Sometimes I get those and the best way to fulfill it is with steak or a burger. I won’t eat crappy steak though; it has to be a quality cut from a reputable source. I bought some filets at Whole Foods [...]

Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers

I made a pretty delicious burger last night that I thought I would share. I defrosted some ground turkey because I was going to attempt lasagna, but I realized I didn’t have any lasagna noodles. Oops! I improvised and made these awesome burgers since I had everything on hand.

Broiled Mahi-Mahi With Parsleyed Tomatoes

I have a little time to kill before I meet my friend to run at 9 so I thought I would share my delicious dinner from last night

This was AMAZING. I bought some fresh Mahi Mahi at Whole Foods last weekend that was on sale so I wanted to use that up before I [...]

Whole Wheat Naan Bread

This stuff is seriously crack. As most of you know, I am in the process of making every recipe from the “102 essential recipes” in How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman. Last night was “Grilled Fish Fillets”, and I made a salad, so I needed some bread to go with it.

This recipe is pretty easy [...]

Grilled Salmon with Tomato Dill Marinara

I was in the mood for some Salmon on Sunday night, but I also wanted pasta because I was running 20 miles in the morning. I have probably stated this before, but I ALWAYS eat pasta before a long run or race. It is sort of like a ritual. I usually stick to basic dishes because [...]
