eat your greens. [broccoli pesto pasta]

March 3rd, 2021 by | comments

Although I don’t have kids yet, I feel like this would be a great dish to try and get your kids to eat vegetables. Sure, it’s pasta, but there is a lot of broccoli in here AKA lots of fiber and protein! The broccoli pesto sauce is full of flavor and perfectly coats the cavatappi noodles. You don’t have to top the pasta with crumbled bacon, but I highly recommend it!

product review – Appetites. [tamarind glazed beef w. sesame broccoli & snow peas]

August 22nd, 2014 by | comments


Grocery shopping and cooking just got so much easier with the iPhone and iPad app, Appetites. The company’s publicist asked if I wanted to try the service (free of charge), and I gladly accepted.

Appetites provides tons of delicious recipes on the app. Once you select a recipe and enter your billing information, you select a delivery time and all the ingredients arrive at your door that same day! Pretty convenient, huh? What’s even better is that once you’re ready to cook, the app has step-by-step video instructions for the recipe–it couldn’t get much easier. This tamarind beef I chose to make was full of flavor and delicious paired with the nutty broccoli and snow peas!

newfound love. [creamy buffalo chicken & quinoa bake w. kale, broccoli & goat cheese]

November 6th, 2013 by | comments


Over the past few months, I’ve fallen in love with buffalo sauce. Don’t ask what took me so long. I had a ton of quinoa in my pantry and wanted to find a way to combine the grain with my newfound love (buffalo sauce). To my surprise, I found a recipe online that did just that. This quinoa bake was divine–I’m getting giddy just thinking about having it for dinner tonight. :)

feels like home. [chicken divan]

IMG_4467Chicken 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!

back on track. [quick broccoli cheese soup]

January 9th, 2013 by | comments


Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a great one. I’m just getting back into the swing of things, as I had two weeks off work. I spent most of the break at home with my family, then flew up to San Francisco for New Year’s Eve weekend.

Unfortunately, I caught that nasty cold going around, so I’m relying on comfort foods, Emergen-C and lots of rest to get better. Though I’m not fully recovered, this soup definitely helped a bit. Here’s to hoping none of you catch this cold!

heating up. [sun-dried tomato fettuccine w. chicken & broccoli]

August 16th, 2012 by | comments

It’s hot. I mean, really hot. So why did I make pasta? I suppose I’d have to go with laziness; I didn’t want to make a trip to the grocery, so i played the game of ‘use what you have.’ The dish turned out delicious, and not too heavy. My roommate, Megan, and I enjoyed a bowl of the pasta while blasting the air conditioning. It made the dining experience much more enjoyable. :)
