Spicy Thai Noodles

We’re only one week into June, and it feels like summer is flying by already. After finishing the school semester, I took a girls road trip with my two closest friends from pharmacy school. It was wonderful! We took I-70 to Utah, then made our way down to Northern Arizona, hitting Capitol Reef National Park,… Continue reading Spicy Thai Noodles

Spring Rolls with Peanut Hoisin Dipping Sauce

September is here, yet fall has not quite arrived with it. Though this is on the whole quite irritating, it does mean a bit of an extended harvest. My mint patch is still going strong, and spring rolls have become my favorite way to use it up. I don’t have a very long history with… Continue reading Spring Rolls with Peanut Hoisin Dipping Sauce


One Pot Greek Chicken and Orzo

Another semester of school has started, which means once again my evening free time has shriveled. Therefore, quick, easy, pre-planned meals like this one pot recipe are a life saver. And if I haven’t planned ahead, cereal is usually what’s for dinner. I love me some cereal, as does Alejandro. However, my responsible adult self… Continue reading One Pot Greek Chicken and Orzo

All this heat makes… Continue reading Slow Cooker Venison Barbacoa


Viola and Strawberry Arugula Salad with Feta

I know, I’m pretty shocked myself. I’ve always hated raw leafy greens in any form and have gone far lengths to avoid them. Each… Continue reading Viola and Strawberry Arugula Salad with Feta


Sourdough Crepes with Turkey, Arugula, Artichokes, and Sun Dried Tomatoes

Spring is finally here!!! Though our winter hasn’t been especially nasty, I’m definitely feeling a change of season. It’s been fun the past couple weeks seeing more and more of the perennials I planted the last two years peeking out of our flower beds. Between picking up an additional three shifts at work last week… Continue reading Sourdough Crepes with Turkey, Arugula, Artichokes, and Sun Dried Tomatoes

Linguine Aglio Olio

Let me just tell you, the last couple weeks have been rough. They’ve involved many late nights and early mornings, multiple teary meltdowns, and not nearly enough baking. Thankfully, I have a couple close friends at school going through the same thing to complain to, study with, and talk life. I’m really not sure if… Continue reading Linguine Aglio Olio
