SIP, SIP, HOORAY!! & to that I say T-G-I-F!
…Just kidding, every day is Friday when you’re in quarantine! *one of the perks*
I know dalgona coffee is the new craze, but I got to be honest… I’m OBSESSED with matcha.
So naturally I just HAD to make dalgona matcha (aka whipped matcha goodness)! This recipe is kicked up crude mom style though. I made a homemade honey vanilla simple syrup that blends seamlessly with the whipped matcha & almond flavored milky drink!

This salad mother fuckin’ SCREEEAMS fall. Just look at it. Now look at it again. How much more fall can a salad get?!
If you like sweet & salty at the same time, this is your recipe! However, if you’re one of those people who hate fruit with savory, or who don’t like hot & cold food mixing… just click out now. Really, it’s ok! I’ve only taken partial offense… /just find you really, really weird hahaha ;)

You know that one night a week where you’re sitting there fighting with yourself, “I’ve been eating really well! I deserve some fuckin’ carbs. I deserve some damn cheese! I’ll just slap a tomato on it & call it healthy”! Well, that’s how this Pesto Caprese Grilled Cheese was born. Well, that & the cold weather made me do it. Pair this with a hot cup of tomato soup?!?! DEAR LORD YAAASSSSSSS <3 <3
I don’t think this sammich needs much selling.
Hot melty cheese.

This has to be one of the easiest & least complicated recipes I have up on the blog. Aaaand that’s exactly why it’s one of my favorites! It’s the perfect quick & easy weeknight dinner. The plus side?? You don’t need much of the white wine, so you’re free to drink the rest of the bottle *winnnnning*!
For how little ingredients there are, this dish isn’t lacking any flavor.
It’s bright, a bit tangy, salty, buttery, & in a bath of white wine sauce!! Fucking YAASSSSS!
These meatless meatballs make for the PERFECT party appetizer, or served over a bed of rice for a full on meal! They have been an absolute HIIIIT, even with my carnivorous friends, at every party we’ve ever brought them to. People gasp when they find out they’re completely vegetarian, shrug, & devour them until the pot is empty.
So what if I was craving Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana… & I don’t eat meat?!?! *puts hands in face & cries*
Aaaaaand that’s basically how this recipe was born! I also don’t use cream because it’s not the grrrrreatest for you ;) Ok, so maybe this is more like a healthier, meatless take on the Olive Garden classic! Haha! I promise you though, it’s super fucking delish!!

I woke up today feeling like I was on the verge of getting sick. We are talking weak, sore muscles, tender neck, & some serious brain fog. I wanted to make something for dinner that was easy but also nourishing as fuck. I remembered a deliciously filling soup I’d made a while back. It was the PERFECT cold weather day or sick prevention soup! It’s a naturally detoxifying soup thanks to the lemon, garlic & turmeric! WIN WIN. Not to mention all of the vitamins & minerals you get from the lentils.
My bruschetta is one of my most coveted recipes! A true garlic lovers best friend! I can’t tell you how many times I have been asked for this recipe. Let me tell you, writing it down was H-A-R-D. I normally make this & adjust the seasonings as I go. Keeping track of what exactly I put in it?!?! A straight up challenge.
This recipe is for my soon to be sister in law, Shana!! She has asked for this recipe countless times, as well as the others in my tribe! This one goes out to my homies <3 ;)

This is the ultimate summer dish!! I like to make this recipe & have it in the fridge for lunches, or for just a quick snack! The longer it marinates in its own juices, the BETTER!
It’s cold, crisp & refreshing.
It tastes light, lemony, a bit tart, juicy, & deliciously crunchy! This recipe takes no time at all to make & is highly rewarding in the flavor department. Not to mention all of the amazing health benefits of chickpeas! You can look them up yourself, I said I wasn’t going to mention them ;)
Ok, hear me out, I too was super skeptical when I saw a salmon patty served over cabbage...
I thought to myself:
1) That seems like a super fucking weird combo.
2) Cabbage makes me toot toot (not sexy).
3) Will this dinner ACTUALLY fill my belly?
4) Will it even be tasty?????
