Warming Up {majorly easy chili}

Warming Up {majorly easy chili}

We are actually having a heat wave. It’s been in the low 40s the last several days and I am legitimately sweating even though I’m not wearing 8309482 layers. Who am I??! Okay, that’s a separate issue. What I have for you today is a hearty bowl of healthy chili that will do your body good even when the … Continue reading

Preparation {overnight steel-cut oats & quinoa}

I’m pooped, y’all. Last semester was brutal both in terms of school and also personally—I lost my maternal avó (grandmother) in October, which shook me to my core. It still knocks the wind out of me. She was a phenomenal woman, and I miss her every day. Though the circumstances were devastating, getting home to the Bay … Continue reading

Bringing it Back {hot artichoke dip}

Bringing it Back {hot artichoke dip}

Hello, friends! My summer in the Windy City got away from me. It was eventful and busy! My first night I ate at one of Chicago’s best restaurants, Girl & The Goat, and the next morning saw one of my best friends graduate from med school. I squeezed in more great food at The Publican, The Bristol, and Frontera … Continue reading

A Week of Lasts {beet hummus}

Right now I am in a pretty nutty transition period. The past nine months have been a whirlwind of moving towards some major life changes—I’m starting grad school this fall, and the road to get there has been long (and at times, trying). So after prepping for/taking the GRE, writing and re-writing entrance applications (aka … Continue reading

Jesus Cookies {reese’s & pb cookies}

Today I bring you Jesus Cookies. No, not these: I don’t remember why my high school friends and I started calling these  “Jesus Cookies,” but the name certainly stuck. I was racking my brain yesterday (and enlisting the help of friends and my mom) trying to come up with a better/more [socially] appropriate name for these … Continue reading

Banh Mi Bowls

Banh Mi Bowls

Banh mi sandwiches have to be some of the best things you can stuff your face with. They are cheap, full of so many textures, and pack a serious depth of flavor that is so simple, it’s a little mind-boggling. I have my favorite banh mi place by my work, where for just $4.50 I … Continue reading

Marietta’s Cheesecake

Marietta’s Cheesecake

It’s been a while! I’m sorry for the major gap. Not quite sure how to explain it other than life gets in the way. Ain’t it so? But I’m back. With tasty stuff. I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but boy do I love cheesecake. I used to ask my mom to make … Continue reading

Greek Turkey Burgers with Tzatziki

Greek Turkey Burgers with Tzatziki

It’s almost summertime, and we’ve had a few weeks of some pretty freakishly warm weather in San Francisco. If you are wondering why I am surprised by this, thinking perhaps, “Warm weather is not the warm for summer in San Francisco?” let me tell you first that no, it is not normal, and then direct … Continue reading
