Chicken Tamale Bowl

I have been obsessed with polenta lately. Likeeeeee you can literally put anything on top of polenta! Last night I decided to make these chicken tamale bowls, and instead of using rice underneath toppings, I switched it out for polenta. I’m so happy I did because It was SO good!!! Ingredients: Chicken: 1 lb chicken […]

Balsamic Brussel Sprouts

As an adult I’ve re-discovered my love for brussel sprouts. As a kid there was no food that I despised more than brussel sprouts. Growing up, my parents would make the Green Giant frozen package sprouts with butter sauce for dinner. They were mushy, cabbage-y,  and soaked in some nasty sauce that tasted way over […]

My Morning Coffee

I’m a coffee addict. I can’t explain it, but I just need it. I can drink it black. I can drink it sugary. I can drink an espresso or a latte. I don’t discriminate against it by any means. If it’s morning and there’s a coffee in front of me, I’ll drink it. As I’ve […]

Toast everyday

I’m not a big breakfast person. If I make breakfast it’s something quick. Like a smoothie, muffin, hard boiled egg, oatmeal, or toast. Usually its just coffee though. Side note, growing up I used to love toaster strudels, both the fruit ones and the ones with egg and cheese. Obviously I no longer eat those […]

Ronin Sushi

I don’t know if there has ever been a time where Phil has asked me “What do you want to eat?” where Asian cuisine doesn’t pop into my mind. Sushi, Thai, or Chinese I could eat any day, everyday. Basically I could eat rice and fish for every meal. So on Saturday after working 11pm-11am […]

Pizza All Day Everyday

As an avid pizza connoisseur, yes I said connoisseur, I have picked my top pizza places. I like all pizza; deep dish, Chicago, thin crust, flavored crust, you name it. If it’s a carb, and has melted cheese on it, I like it. One of my favorite things about living so close to downtown is […]

I’m obsessed

Ive always considered myself one of the lucky ones blessed with good skin.  I’ve never had issues with break outs; except that one dreaded time a month. !!BUT!! I unfortunately do not drink much water. As much as I try, I’m just never thirsty; and then when I try to push myself to drink water […]
