Planning a Holiday Happy Hour

A few weeks ago, I decided to combine a housewarming party and a festive holiday happy hour into one big celebration at my new house in Tulsa. It was so much fun to do everything from the invitations, to the decor, to the cooking – and even more fun to actually enjoy the party. I […]

“Spaghetti” and Meat Sauce

Comfort food is an absolute necessity of life. However, is it really comforting if it makes you feel like absolute trash afterwards? Nothing is less comforting to me than feeling like the cookie monster or a beached whale after inhaling an entire pint of ice cream or a loaf of freshly baked sourdough bread (a […]

Walnut & Thyme Encrusted Cod

Clearly I’ve been majorly slacking for the past few weeks, so you’ll have to accept my apologies. I got put down by a horrendous flu that is actually still in my life. Go away. Nobody likes you, flu. I enjoy sleeping, working out and actually being able to taste my food. You make me stuffy, […]

Creating a Picture Perfect Bed

I’m not a master decorator by any means. I don’t really know anything about interior design, and I can’t even really tell you what my “style” is – I just SORT OF¬†know what I like. Even then, I typically get overwhelmed by choices, tend to be¬†disappointed in results, and then want to change things 3 […]

Coconut Chicken Fingers and Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

I talk a big game when it comes to pizza, but chicken fingers also hold a very special place in my heart, especially when paired with a honey mustard dipping sauce. Mmmmhm. Yes. I actually made these a couple weeks ago and haven’t gotten around to putting them up, and am having to fight the […]

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 + […]
