If you’re in the market for a delicious, stick-to-your-ribs type of dish that’s full of hearty white beans, tomatoes, garlic, capers, mushrooms, and black olives, then you’ve come […]

Thai Basil Ground Beef Bowl

Ever since my trip to Thailand I have been head over heels for Thai food. Luckily in Los Angeles, I can find amazing and authentic dishes in Thai Town, but many times I want to create it at home and have more control of the ingredients. One of my favorite spicy dishes is Thai Holy Basil Beef, or Gai Pad Krapow, so I set out to create a quick and healthier version at home using ground beef […]

Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites

Bacon wrapped chicken bites are the easiest appetizer, made with just TWO ingredients. Using the air fryer, the bacon comes out crisp on the outside, and the chicken juicy and tender inside. These were always a favorite when I was a kid, my Mom served them anytime we had company. She would set out some duck sauce, totally optional and let everyone dig in. If you prefer to bake them in the oven, you can use oven […]

How Many Weight Watchers Points is a banana? What makes Weight Watchers different from other diet wellness programs and the reason it worked well for me is that you can eat whatever you like. On WW no foods are off limits. But if you are choosing to eat fast food, chips and cookies, you’ll use up your points on a small amount of food and may end up being very hungry. To help you make better choices, and […]

So when I do cook it I want it to be tasty and leave me wanting more.. I love shredded pork and decided to try my own version of pork carnitas, which is a fancy name for a Mexican inspired pulled pork.

Angel Hair Pasta with Sausage and Kale

Pasta is so easy to make and dress up with just about anything. It’s like a nice blank slate that accepts just about any accouterments you want to throw at it. Angel hair pasta (also known as capellini pasta in Italy) happens to be one of my more favorite pasta because it’s so fine and I think pairs nicely with bigger, more textured proteins and vegetables. For example, you wouldn’t really want a really big, chewy pasta […]

Ultimate Guide to Quinoa: How to Cook It, Health Benefits, and Recipes

Every time I think about quinoa, I think about that Bud Light commercial from a few years back and I laugh. I don’t laugh because of how they portray quinoa like it’s a bad food. I laugh because of how the actor pronounces the word (for anyone still wondering it’s pronounced “keen-wah”) and also because I think some people think the grain is a bad thing. It’s different than your typical rice or wheat, sure, but in […]
