Chicken divan will always remind me of home. My mom made it for my family often growing up, and it’s one of my favorite home-cooked meals. Though the casserole is by no means a healthy dish, it’s unbelievably delicious and comforting. It’ll taste even better once it starts to cool down in LA. Hurry up, fall weather!
Hope everyone had a great weekend, and is surviving/survived Monday! I have yet another busy week ahead of me, as I’m heading to New York in a couple of days for work. Though it’ll be a quick trip and full of work events, I’ll have some time to visit friends who live in the city.
These lettuce wraps are fresh and delicious, and the perfect weeknight meal. The spicy drizzling sauce has just the right amount of kick and boosts the flavor of the ground turkey. Enjoy!

Happy October! I can’t believe it’s already fall, but I’m definitely not complaining. I’m looking forward to chilly weather, warm clothes and hearty meals…oh, and all things pumpkin. Soup is one of my favorite meals during the fall/winter, so I’m kicking off this month with a classic chicken tortilla soup. This recipe is hearty, delicious and healthy–well, healthy sans the sour cream and tortilla strips. :)
Last weekend, I got to see my brother marry his girlfriend of seven years and love of his life, Vanya. The wedding was absolutely gorgeous and a day they will never forget. It was so nice to spend the weekend with family from Ohio that we haven’t seen in years.
This chicken dish was always a favorite of mine growing up, but for some reason, I’d never made it myself. The dish is simple to prepare, and full of flavor. The white wine cream sauce is heavenly…I tell ya, heavenly!

As I expected, last month flew by. I visited my hometown of Columbus, Ohio two different weekends, once for my cousin’s wedding then again for the first Ohio State football game (GO BUCKS!). Life has momentarily slowed down, so I was finally able to get back in the kitchen. These tostadas were delicious and simple to prepare. The freshly fried corn tortillas are a must!
How is it already August?! The next couple months are going to fly by for me, as I’ll be in Ohio two different weekends, then my brother gets married in September. Though it’s been extremely busy, it has been and will be a blast spending time with family and friends. I’ll only be in LA two weekends out of the upcoming seven, so I might be a little slow to post!
On to the recipe–this dish is simple and delicious, with the star being the creole mustard sauce. The meat and vegetables can be served on or off the kabobs. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to snap a photo until after we ate, so the veggies aren’t pictured. Food blogger fail!
Calling all peanut butter and banana lovers–I think I’ve found your new favorite dessert. These bars are moist and full of flavor, and the Nutella drizzle takes them to the next level. I know I’ll be making these again very soon.
Last weekend, my best friend’s brother (who happens to be my brother’s best friend), got married. The wedding was absolutely gorgeous and one to remember. Congrats Ryan and Stephanie!
If you’re in need of a wedding photographer, I highly recommend Lauren Scotti!
