mediterranean chicken burgers

I seem to recall a cute little saying in elementary school, “April showers bring May flowers!” Was that just a way to make children growing up in Syracuse, NY feel better about the fact that even once it stops snowing, the weather is still going to be crappy for a few more weeks? Is there…

kale caesar

Don’t hate me for the most basic of all basic posts. I mean that in both ways, as in “I’m giving you directions for assembling a salad” and also the 2016 vernacular “this is soooo #basic.” I made these a few weeks ago for dinner, with the promise to myself that if I was going…

chicken cordon bleu sandwich

Last weekend, my family came down to visit Baltimore and DC, and then attend a family wedding in Virginia on Sunday. They got to do all the touristy things: the aquarium, the science museum, and an O’s game in Baltimore, and then the DC monuments and Arlington National Cemetery the following day. We stopped by…

tzatziki chicken salad

How is it already August? I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised that this summer is flying given that I’ve been flying all over the place every week. This week I’m going to Philly which means I’m driving and I can already taste the freedom of just good old fashioned traffic. On my red-eye back…

chicken burrito bowl

I’ve done several stupid things recently. When I found out I was going to be working from home, I figured all I would need is a laptop and I could just carry it around the house and work from wherever. Uhh, not so much. I have so much crap already. And by ‘crap,’ I mean…

broccoli parmesan stuffed chicken

Less than four weeks until graduation. Four weeks baby. FOUR WEEKS! (Name that show.) It’s hard to believe that this whole blog shenanigan lasted the entire time I was in grad school. I’m hoping that with my move back to Baltimore I’ll be posting more often because: 1) I’ll have friends to cook for. Okay,…

tortilla crusted chicken

200 days until Kelly and Aaron tie the knot! (It works out really well that it’s a nice number, implying that I really planned ahead here. Spoiler alert: I didn’t.) A midst all of the planning for the eventĀ itself, everyone in the family is thinking about looking their best for the big day. Mom and…

creamy chicken taco soup

It’s barely 2015 and I’m already over winter. Yes, I did grow up in Syracuse, NY, but to be fair I spent the better part of the last 7 winters in Maryland. While not exactly tropical, Baltimore is just a little bit warmer which makes the winter more bearable, in my opinion. When I walked…

sriracha honey baked chicken wings

I just spent my 3rd weekend in Rochester. This was weird given that I’ve lived here since June. I’ve been escaping to camp, or Baltimore, or home all summer. I subbed a Body Pump class on Saturday- that’s right, finally found a job teaching! I legitimately stalked the group fitness director at a gym like…

three bean salsa

I somehow made this way more complicated than it needed to be. I was planning to whip up this salsa/salad concoction one night last week for dinner, but when I got home from Wegmans I realized that I don’t have a can opener. This is one of the downfalls of living alone- all those little…
