Pumpkin Mac and Cheese with Italian Sausage

Call it biased for being born in October, but fall is my absolute favorite season. From sweater weather to the crisp smell in the air of the fall leaves that are changing into beautiful hues of orange and red, autumn is a magical time of year. And nothing brings that magic to life more than […]

5 Fresh & Easy 5 ingredient Summer Salad Recipes

There comes a point during the summer where slaving away in front of a hot stove or oven has ZERO appeal. With a bunch of fresh fruits and vegetables in season and bikini season also in full effect, the desire of a refreshing salad skyrockets and the stars basically align for producing some kick-ass spring and […]

Cheesy Chicken & Artichoke Cauliflower Casserole

For my fellow artichoke lovers out there, this recipe is for you. While one of my favorite artichoke-focused items is the namesake slice from Artichoke Basille Pizzeria, it’s safe to say that an artichoke slice is nowhere near healthy.

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! First off, apologies for the brief hiatus in posts, but I’ve been quite busy with a new job (promotion, heyyy!), as well as NYRR races, the Governor’s Ball music festival, and a recent trip to Napa and Las Vegas (for which you can expect a few […]

Rosemary Candied Bacon Grilled Cheese with Balsamic Apples

Guys, I may have just made the best grilled cheese of my life. This grilled cheese was the result of attending The Big Cheesy a couple of weeks ago, as I left the event inspired to do a grilled cheese series featuring my own cheesy creations. I have a few different ideas swimming in my head, […]

Easy Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Pasta

It’s officially spring, but Winter is apparently a psycho ex that won’t go away as it’s been hovering in the realm of 40s and windy the past few days in NYC. In times like these, I skip the kale and quinoa and go for the comforting stuff, especially after a hard workout when my metabolism […]

Easy Avocado Toast with Sunny Side Up Egg

If it hasn’t already been obvious based on my prior posts, there are 2 food items that I have a disproportionate amount of love for: avocados and eggs. My friends have even joked that this blog is basically just me throwing an egg on top of everything, which is partially true, and so I’m fully embracing […]
