Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend?

This was our first full weekend back home after our honeymoon and we had plenty of catching up to do including piles of laundry, grocery shopping and baking two loaves of bread. We finally watched the movie La La Land, which I found adorable. Have you seen it?

Saturday and Sunday were fantastic, relaxing and food of good food (both Mexican and Thai!). We also hung out with friends, watched The Office on Netflix and cooked a few delicious meals out of the HGG Reset (are you guys doing it yet?!).

Pumpkin chicken chili with black beans and quinoa! A protein packed delicious dinner that can be made in your slow cooker.

Pumpkin week recipe #2 is here and it’s a savory one! I’m writing this while we’re driving back into the city after a long weekend of wedding planning. It’s raining out, No Doubt is blasting and one of our windshield wipers isn’t working correctly.

Secretly I’m hoping it will continue raining for next few days so I can cozy up under a blanket, take a bath every night while chilling out to my Spotify playlists, followed by a big bowl of chili with sweet cornbread on the side.

Enchilada turkey meatloaf stuffed with sharp cheddar cheese and jalapenos to make this a deliciously spicy and FUN dinner idea!

As I was photographing this meatloaf, I thought to myself how difficult it was to actually make meatloaf look delicious. Then again I thought, maybe a saucy photos are the way to do it. Saucy photos are popular on Pinterest so I’ve concluded that people must love them.

Or at least that’s what I told myself when I photographed this recipe anyway. Heh.

Paleo and gluten free turkey burger sliders on sweet potato buns. An easy bite sized recipe or appetizer!

Did you know the official first day of summer was LAST week? I don’t know about you, but it has felt like summer here in Chicago for about a month now. I’ve been absolutely loving the heat, the longer days, and the chance to hang out on the patio with Tony.

We also have a bird feeder, so Milly likes to come plop her belly out and watch the birds too.

Juicy grilled jerk chicken drumsticks with a delicious Caribbean Rice & sweet mango salsa. The perfect healthy grilling recipe for summertime!

When I was a wee little nugget aka a little lady, my favorite kind of chicken was chicken drumsticks. My mom grilled and baked them all the time for us, usually slightly coated or sometimes in zippy Puerto Rican spices with creamy beans and Spanish rice on the side. The chicken was incredibly juicy, so much more so than regular chicken breasts.

Now I wonder why I don’t eat it more often.
