Caramel Macchiato

Treat Yo’ Self Two Thousand Fiftee-eeen! (You have to imagine Tom Haverford and Donna singing that, okay?) I was WAAAY late to the Parks and Rec party…like, didn’t-even-start-watching-it-until-it-the-series-was-over late. And while I was a little dissappointed in myself  (I’m usually pretty up-to-date, very familiar with, and generally all over any funny TV), after I’d watched the first episode, all I could be was excited…because, yeah, shame on me for taking so long, but also, lucky me—I had so much solid comedy ahead! Laughs for months to come! (It actually ended up being more like weeks, but that’s beside the point.) While Treat Yo’ Self Day has been around since 2011, Treat Yo’ Self 2015 (that’s today!) is my first opportunity to celebrate with the rest of the Parks and Rec-watching world. And if you have no idea what I’m talking about, two things: #1 I am so jealous because you still get to watch the whole series for the first time, and #2 Watch this video so you know what the deal is. Fragrances and “fine …

Brussels Sprouts Fettuccine

I was never one of those kids who hated Brussels sprouts. I mean, I knew that I should most definitely turn my nose up at them, but the truth is, I never had them as a child. And by the time I tried them as an adult, people had figured out how to cook them in such a way that they were, like, good. Delicious, even. Brussels sprouts are another fall food that makes me feel all cozy, and while I love them roasted, I don’t always have 45 minute’s worth of foresight. The other night, I wanted Brussels sprouts, and I wanted them now, so I sliced them up, pan-fried ’em, and tossed them with pasta and a simple garlic sauce. So easy and delicious. Happy cooking!

Heirloom Tomato Pasta

You know those days when you need pasta and you need it now? That was yesterday for me. I needed pasta. In my stomach. ASAP. I was trying to hold off a major migraine, and when that’s in progress, I need something serious to eat. So, pasta…but I figured I should probably have some vegetables, too. Luckily I had some heirloom tomatoes (that were total lookers, by the way), basil, and some cashew cream already made—I was eating 20 minutes later. 🙂 This meal is really easy, healthy, and filling.

Breakfast Quesadilla

There are two foods I can never get enough of: coffee and Mexican food. So, it was only natural that I would eventually come up with a Mexican dish I could justify eating with my morning latte. This breakfast quesadilla calls for crispy potato “tortillas” with a scrambled egg center that has delicious Mexican flavors folded up inside. It’s hearty, healthy, and has a bit of a kick. You’ll love it. Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!
