Bacon Egg and Cheese Breakfast Paratha Taco

Today is officially my 28th birthday. It feels pretty weird considering I’ve just made a huge move to the other side of the world, and I’m separated from my family and most of my closest friends.

Grilled Shrimp & Mexican Street Corn Tacos (In Collaboration with Men’s Health)

Mexican street corn is one of my favorite things to eat. The tart lime and cheese with that charred corn and chili powder make such an addictive dish that I call it crack corn. I’ve already written two different recipes for it, so when Men’s Health approached me to help them create something perfect for summertime […]

Eggs + cheese + carbs is always a good combination, but making the cheese + carbs in the form of pizza adds a level of goodness that a piece of toast can never match.

Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Adobo

Chicken adobo is my all-time favorite comfort food. I have fond childhood memories of being in my room and perking up when the savory, pungent yet delicious smell of my mom making chicken adobo made its way from the kitchen to my nose.

Spicy Italian sausage, kale, and ricotta are 3 of my favorite ingredients to combine. I’ve prepared them in various iterations, from pasta to breakfast pizza, but when the football season started I had a lightbulb moment: football field pizza! With a little extra effort, your standard rectangular pizza gets transformed into this Sausage Kale and […]

Easy 5 Ingredient Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Freezing temperatures call for hearty, stomach-lining foods like mac and cheese and stews. Since comfort food tends to veer on the unhealthy side though, I love making turkey chili to fulfill my need for a warm bowl of food while keeping my waistline in check. Plus it’s perfect for game day, especially with the Superbowl […]
