Oh hey, I know it’s kinda been a while since I’ve done my last travel post. I feel like I’ve been traveling ALL summer and between launching the new blog design, working full-time, cooking up recipes, and visiting Tony, I haven’t had time to do an iPhone photo dump.
Zucchini season is HERE because my Pinterest feed told me so. I even made a board devoted to all things zucchini (shameless plug so you can follow me!).
If you’re thinking that you would never put zucchini in a baked good, it’s time to get out of your comfort zone because these muffins are MIND-BLOWING and full of chocolate love with zero zucchini taste.
I love when vegetables can taste like chocolate, don’t you?
Why are burgers so freakin’ delicious? I’m serious. Turkey burgers, chicken burgers, bites of Tony’s heart-attack double bacon burgers. Oh and isn’t it just convenient that they are constantly paired with the other most addictive food in the world… aka french fries?!
My willpower around juicy burgers and hot, crispy french fries = zero.
So, what’s a girl who is trying to eat healthy but has a massive craving for a burger to do?
I feel as though I’ve been waiting forever for humid summer nights. And my goodness are they here. Smoky BBQ meat, fresh juicy watermelon, and frozen yogurt has taken over my life and I couldn’t be more ecstatic about it.
As you’ve probably seen via my Instagram, I’ve been taking a few summer trips. Along the way, I find myself eating out and enjoying food relative to each state’s culture. Often times, I’ll order some sort of chopped salad; each one being more unique than the last. In New Mexico, I enjoyed a BBQ Chicken salad with green chile, chickpeas, jicama, mango, red pepper and an incredible cumin-lime dressing. In Minnesota, I often munch on my Healthy Chicken Chickpea Chopped salad and mix up the dressings. When in North Carolina visiting Tony, I gravitate to greek salads with red potatoes, grilled onions, olives, and loads of feta cheese.
Hi you guys. How was your weekend?
From around noon until 6pm on Saturday and Sunday, I was in my kitchen testing out new recipes. It’s actually my little weekend ritual. I jam out to music, dance around, get creative, trash the kitchen, and make my entire apartment smell like fresh baked goodies.
