A spicy southwest inspired version of tuna mac and cheese with black beans and yellowfin tuna made in partnership with Genova Seafood! Great for weeknight dinners, game day or anytime you have a comfort food craving.

Raise your hand if you loveeeee mac and cheese.

As a kid, my Dad would always make me mac and cheese made with sharp or white cheddar, LOTS and lots of pepper. If I was lucky, he’d would add peas (because I loved them more than any other veggie in the world).

Now that I’m into full on #adulting into my late 20’s, I LOVE when my mac and cheese is packed with anything just a little bit unique: truffle mac and cheese, mac and cheese with a Ritz cracker topping, mac and cheese with brussels, butternut squash mac and cheese, or even a classic broccoli cheddar mac and cheese. Can mac and cheese be its own food group yet?

Delicious and easy 30 minute dinner for two: Chili Maple Lime Salmon Bowls with amazing mango & edamame mixed with sweet forbidden rice.

Lately, we’ve been loving salmon. It’s the BEST easy healthy meal out there, am I right?

Just the other day, I stepped into Whole Foods after a class at Crosstown Fitness. Usually I head there after my workout. Normally I shop at Trader Joe’s because it’s much cheaper, but Whole Foods happens to be incredibly convenient when I need last minute ingredients. Plus sometimes they have pretty good deals on produce (all the berries right now!).

Easy, flavorful tuna wraps drizzled with light chipotle Greek yogurt ranch dressing. They’re the perfect summertime lunch and packed with delicious farmer’s market veggies.

Say hello to my new favorite lunch because I couldn’t believe how much I LOVED it. I’ve been on a pretty consistent, early morning workout routine as of late, which means by the time I’m thinking about lunch (as early as 10:30AM for Abra and I…) I want something quick, filling, and of course, delish.

You only need 30 minutes to make this amazing honey garlic salmon paired with Dole’s new fabulous organic Apple Dijon Salad!

Five years ago I would have been crowned the salad queen. Now Abra (AK’s brand manager) has taken the position that over. If you follow us on Insta, you know that we’ve adopted the hashtag #abrassalad.

Every day she packs the most delicious little lunch and meal prep concoctions: roasted brussels with goat cheese and chickpeas; kale salad with garlic and carrots, and a sautéed broccoli with chickpeas and cranberries. Can you say veggie inspo?

Tuna quinoa salad packed with protein, fresh spring veggies and a green goddess avocado dressing. Delicious and so easy to make!

My Dad used to make the BEST tuna pasta salad on the planet. It had tiny little circular pasta, fresh peas, lots of tuna and wayyy too much mayo. Truth be told, I loved it from the bottom of my heart.

Dad even made the salad for my high school graduation party and I couldn’t resist going back for serving after serving. It was a simple memory, but one that will stay with me forever.

Spicy Maple Glazed Salmon for two makes the perfect weeknight dinner. All you need is 20 minutes to make this healthy meal. Serve with sweet potato fries and veggies, or a lovely kale and brussels sprouts salad!

I’m trying to settle back into the routine of things at home after a little over a week in Israel. It’s going to take me a while to sum up the incredible experiences I had there, but I’ll preface it by saying that was truly a life changing experience. While I’m definitely sleep-deprived, my soul feels peaceful and happy. Over the next few weeks, my plan is to break down my trip by experience and through recipes I enjoyed while abroad.

If I ever move anywhere else in the United States, it would be to California. Lately I’ve been thinking about the days when I used to live in Hermosa Beach. The weather was indescribably beautiful. The neon pink and orange sunsets were astounding. The wines were bold and native. The hiking trails were gruesome (in a good way).

Every year these memories come up as we approach cooler temperatures. I can already feel it happening and I’m just not ready yet. How about you?

I think one of the most important things in any relationship is finding someone who can make you laugh. Or who you can laugh along with. I’m a HUGE goofball (and pretty weird), so finding someone that understands my sense of humor is essential.

Oh, I think I forgot to tell you guys I am dating. Not serious marriage dating, just having fun and searching for that little bit of laughter in my life. Good, right? Well obviously for whoever I date it’s good. I mean, what kind of guy can resist freshly baked cookies and mexican food for dinner?

There are reasons I can’t go around cooking for all of my dates — food is a serious attachment. That’s why I only bake the life-changing cookies when I REALLY like someone. Because after those cookies, there is no turning back.

Anyway I’ll keep you posted on all of that… as if you care. But let’s pretend you do, because frankly I can’t just talk about tacos all day.

OH WAIT, yes I can…

First thing’s first: How was your Memorial Day Weekend? I hope you had the chance to relax and eat some delicious food.

I was able to finally catch The Great Gatsby in theaters and HOLY heaven… Leo! I don’t think he’s been that good looking since his Titanic days. Besides staring into Leo’s eyes via theater projection screen, I was able to accomplish a lot this weekend. I cleaned my room (MAJOR DEAL), booked some flights, spent time with my family, cooked, and instagramed my food like a freak.

Yes, I’m totally one of those people.

I wish I could say I instagrammed and ate this salmon this weekend, but that’s just not truth. I actually created this dish several months ago and completely forgot about it until recently when I was strolling through my photos. Please forgive me! How could I deny you this magical meal?

This salmon. Um, words really won’t do it justice, but I’ll try to describe it in the best way I know how: through super delicious adjectives (obviously) and dramatic descriptors.
