I promised I'd be making tortellini soon! In case you missed it, this tortellini recipe is the product of a craving I've been having tortellini for YEARS. I know tortellini seems like a super random craving, and it was. I think it has something to do with my obsession with cute-looking food — tortellini are so darn cute and therefore fun to eat! Regardless, my craving was just made all the worse because...

I know, this would have been better served to post BEFORE the Super Bowl… But considering I made it for the super bowl, there were no pictures to post before that. But any day is a good day for guac, amiright? I’m a very visual person when it comes to food — if it doesn’t look appetizing I don’t want it. This is why I don’t like mayo, and why all the beige food at Thanksgiving (turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, bread…) isn’t appealing to me. And also why guac freaked me out for so long. Green slime? No thanks...

Ugh. The word “healthy” can mean so many different things that it basically means nothing — you know? I bet if you asked five different people what “healthy” meant, they’d give you five different answers. And that’s not inherently wrong or bad! The thing is, health is a highly individual thing, and what’s healthy for one person isn’t necessarily healthy for another. What becomes harmful then, is when someone tries to force what’s healthy for them onto you...

This past Christmas, Marc gifted me what he dubbed “kitchen adventures.” Fancy salt & pepper grinders, a legit pizza cutter, a mortar & pestle, new knives, all sorts of stuff. I’ve lamented before about feeling like I was in a food rut compared to my high school & college days — although what I’ve realized recently is that this is more just real life now. Turns out when your weekdays consist of work, exercising, cooking food, and eating food, it doesn’t leave much time for dreaming about food...

Week 1 of sugar free January is complete! In case you missed it: during the month of January I’m giving up added sugar (inspired by the folks at Pinch of Yum). This is less of a strict diet or a new years’ resolution, and more of an experiment to see how sugar affects my body. Let’s go!

I started writing you a guide on gluten free flours, but quickly realized that I should first start with the ones I use the most often. Because there’s a lot of options out there, and it’s hard to know where to start...

I'm not a huge fan of football as a sport, but I am a fan of it as a social event. This goes all the way back to high school when I'd go to Friday night games to hang out with my friends, and when I got home my dad would ask me "who won?" and I'd be like "ummm..."

Hi! Sorry I've been a little MIA recently... it's been harder than I expected to get back in the swing of things after the holidays! I totally meant to post this last weekend, but then we started talking about finally resuming decorating our apartment (after like a year of doing nothing), so I spent the weekend looking at lamps and side tables instead of taking pictures of salad. Sorry.
But I'm here now with a delicious, nutritions salad! I'm kind of ashamed/baffled at myself for not having a salad recipe on here by now. For all you know, I just eat pizza & cookies all the time. Not that that's too far from the truth... but I at least need to have a salad with my pizza!

Gluten has been a hot topic for long enough now that most people have heard of it. But what is it exactly? When I gave up wheat, rye, and barley (which are gluten-containing grains) about a year and a half ago, I thought I knew what gluten was. Turns out that I had no idea...

Welcome to go messy or go hungry!

I’ve been cooking since before I was tall enough to see over the counter, and I’ve joked about starting a food blog forever, but I wasn’t sure I had anything important to say.

That changed about a year ago when I decided to actually take control of my chronic digestive issues, and wildly changed my diet (as in, no wheat, no lactose, cutting out very specific fruits & vegetables)...
