Tom Kha Gai Soup + Thai Cauliflower Fried Rice

In 2014, Tyler and I spent almost three weeks traveling around Thailand. It was one of the best experiences of my life, and came at a time when I desperately needed to disconnect (wifi is not easy to come by in Thailand). Although I was a bit burned out on Thai food by the end […]

Kale, Bacon & Avocado Salad

This recipe is the epitome of an oldie, but a goodie. I actually really don’t like the word goodie. It feels gross coming out of my mouth and it makes me think of Ciara, and I saw Ciara be mean to Russell Wilson once which is grounds for dismissal in my book. NOT OK. So […]

Portobello Pizzas

One of the *many* things that I have been very excited about since moving to Tulsa is the ability to have a guest stay over in my SPARE BEDROOM. You guys don’t get it. Spare bedrooms just don’t exist in LA (or, let me revise, they didn’t in my tiiiiiny apartments). The thought of someone […]

Pulled Pork Tacos

Pulled pork is one of the best things you can make during the week, in my opinion. It only takes a few minutes to put together in your crockpot, and it’s easy to buy a 2-3lb. roast that will give you juicy, shredded meat for multiple meals. Pork roast + BBQ sauce + Juice + […]

Grilled Caesar Salad with Salmon

One of Tyler and my favorite restaurants in Tulsa, the Palace Cafe, offers a charred caesar salad as an appetizer. The romaine comes out with perfect grill marks, and the heat of the romaine warms and melts the dressing down to the perfect texture. It’s really heavenly. Unfortunately, it’s hard for me to just eat […]

Double Meat Chili

The weather is beginning to turn in Tulsa, and I couldn’t be happier about it. The days have remained pleasantly warm, but the mornings and evenings bring a crispness in the air that is unbeatable. In that final golden hour before sunset, there’s a lingering smell in the air of BBQ and firewood, and I […]

Mediterranean Chicken Pizza

Pizza should basically be a food group, in my opinion. If I were on death row, my last meal would probably be Grimaldi’s pizza from LA – pepperoni, Italian sausage, bacon, red onion and fresh basil (put on after cooking only). Not that I’ve been thinking a lot about Grimaldi’s lately. Okay, I have. Although […]

Sriracha Chicken Salad

It’s no secret that I love spicy food, and that I love chicken salad – so creating this perfect lunch-time recipe was a no brainer. Originally, I planned on making a buffalo chicken salad by combining regular hot sauce + mayonnaise (which would still be a great combo, if that sounds more up your alley). […]

Basic Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast seems to be a meal that people get tripped up on a lot while trying to improve their diets. The typical “easy” breakfast typically involves some kind of grain – a bagel, toast with jam, cereal (GOD I love cereal), pancakes, etc. Another excuse I hear often is that making a healthy breakfast (eggs, […]
