Recipe | InstaPot Refried Beans

I’m a vegetarian and my boyfriend is omni. He’s a good sport though. I’m not afraid to make him some meat, if he wants, but most of the time he happily obliges to eating vegetarian while at home. Because, you know, who is going to complain when someone is cooking a full meal (besides children, obviously)?   On days where… Read more →


Recipe: Strawberry Cheesecake Jars

Even though I’m not really a dessert person, there’s just something about single-serve desserts that get me. Especially if they’re cheesecake.   Spring is coming and I’ve been in the mood for something fruity, but something heavier than just a fruit bowl. So, I decided to search for some options.

Healthy Quinoa Frittatas

Recipe: Quinoa Frittatas

I’m pretty awful at eating breakfast. I mostly drink as much espresso as possible and jam out on work until lunch (early lunch because I’m crazy hungry by 1130am). Sometimes, I’ll eat a handful of almonds – that’s about as serious as it gets.   Now that it’s winter, I find myself craving something heartier in the morning. I’ve been… Read more →
