spicy shells + veggies

Last year, I made a major announcement on my Twitter account that I’m proud to confirm still rings true.

This is meant to be a quick + easy dish that’s easily customizable and the perfect comfort dish during a busy work week. || Read more

mac and cheese for one

I have the worst kind of obsession for mac + cheese. I’ve been on what seems like a life long mission to find the cheesiest, tastiest mac + cheese out there. I’ve had a lot of disappointments and a lot of pretty decent finds (shout out to Mrs. White’s Golden Rule Cafe!).

This recipe is so quick and easy, I have been using it more often than the boxed stuff. Yes. I said boxed. I love Cracker Barrel cheddar and I am not ashamed to admit it.

Super quick and easy and I use pretty much whatever pasta and cheese I have in my fridge and pantry already. I like mine sprinkled with cayenne + parsley and salt and pepper but that’s up to you. You can always season once it’s all put together. I’m literally eating this mac + cheese as I put this post together for you. This obsession is no joke. || Read more

New Year's Day pancakes

Well. Here goes nothing, 2018! After a few days of fun in the world of hellish flu, I woke up today finally feeling somewhat normal. Oh, and with a craving for pancakes. You’ll need to prep a mix of self rising flour for this recipe that you can store for future pancake cravings.  || Read more

BBQ shredded chicken

On this fine Labor Day Monday all any girl wants is a delicious, BBQ shredded chicken sandwich. I mean, right?

This homemade BBQ sauce is quick to put together + makes about 2 cups that you can store in the fridge and use on whatever you’d like. When all is said and done, the shredded chicken will make about 2 sandwiches. Or just 1, piled high with a little bit leftover. No judging.  || Read more

Final Casserole

My cookbooks have unfortunately been left untouched for these past few months but today I picked up my “Healthy Cooking For Two (Or Just You)” cookbook by Frances Price, RD and started flipping through the pages.

FOUND: Carolina Casserole.

SERVINGS: 1-2 people.

Perfect. || Read more

spicy noodles, garlic shrimp + broccoli

I’m certain that I am on some sort of mission to prove to myself that I can truly make dinner night by night using what I’ve got in my fridge, freezer, pantry and without going to the store or market. Seriously. It’s been days, weeks even, since I’ve gone to grab groceries. Blame it on the heat starting to turn up here in the desert or my lack of time to get creative in the kitchen. Tonight, I’m all of a sudden not feeling well and I need a quick fix before bed. || Read more

vegetarian lo mein

I am going to be very honest right now. I’ve had zero interest in grocery shopping lately and if you know me, I love shopping for veggies and other groceries. There’s just no time or energy.

In cases such as these, I rely on recipes exactly like this one. What’s already in my pantry? What veggies do I need to use up before they go bad? You get the drift.

With just a few simple staples you should already have in your pantry, this recipe is a quick and delicious dinner for 1 and takes very little effort. I’m all about cooking vegetarian when I’m in a bind or nothing sounds good to eat. Meat is expensive and takes time to cook, but feel free to add grilled chicken, shrimp, steak… Really, whatever you crave, into this dish to add some protein.

Same goes for the veggies. Don’t skip cooking the noodles in broth. Whatever you throw into your skillet to sauté? That’s up to you!

I literally had half of a zucchini and 3 mushrooms in my vegetable drawer that needed to be used up. I could have easily added some more veggies from my freezer but opted to keep it simple.

It’s all about using what you’ve got (and using that $$ you spent on said food).

Use what you’ve got and eat happy!
