{greek tuna salad}

Happy Hump Day homies! Trying to get back into posting at least one recipe per week. To be honest, I’ve got so many to share….I could post 2 per week. As requested – next week will be the pasta bake that I made Sunday. Stay tuned.

If you’re looking for a new healthy + fresh salad to add to your rotation – I got you boo!

This salad is great for meal prepping lunches too! It saves for about 3 days.

Two misconceptions about canned tuna:

  1. Canned tuna doesn’t have to be boring!
  2. Tuna doesn’t need mayo. Believe it or not!

And I’m sharing a recipe today to prove it!

{shrimp + pineapple fried rice}

Hi friends! It’s been a while since I’ve shared a recipe on here. So, I wanted to change that STAT!

This coming Saturday is Chinese New Year. And you know that I’m all about celebrating ALL THE THINGS. Holidays are kinda my thing! We like to go all out. Big or small. Holiday or not. Typically we celebrate with one main thing…….

FOOD!

Bay and I wanted to put a fun + healthy spin on one of your very favorite Chinese dishes. Fried rice. If Bay could eat fried rice every day, she 100% would. Ha! Since it’s the new year and everyone, inducing myself, seem to be on the clean eating train. I am currently on week #2 of the Kaia Fit 30-day Jump-start program. Which is very clean eating.

My wheels started turning and I decided to whip up on of my favorite healthy rice dishes. Shrimp + Pineapple Fried Rice using Hinode Calrose Brown Rice. Grown in U.S.A. Non GMO. Gluten Free. Heart healthy.

You can find a variety of Hinode rice at Walmart + Nugget Market.

Before we get started on the recipe, I wanted to chat a little more about Chinese New Year.

{cinnamon roll casserole}

Hi friends!

I know it’s been a little quiet over here. I was planning of taking all this week off.

But, then I made this cinnamon roll casserole and Bay said I should probably get on here and share it ASAP! Ha!

This is one of those recipes that will wake your whole house up. As this casserole bakes up, it smells amazing.

{holiday outfit | turkey chili}

SHOP: Ruffle-Trim Top (on sale) | Denim | Heels | Pavé Link Bracelet (on sale)

Dear Santa,

The tree isn’t the only thing getting lit this year! #sorrynotsorry

HAPPY FRIDAY FRIENDS!!!

As I typed the title, I thought – what a random post! Truth is, I’ve got so much to share and so little time. So we’re tag teaming these posts with all the things. Food + outfits! Why not?

Let’s start with why I LOVE all black outfits……

Slimming AF | I think we’re all down with anything to look a little slimmer, right? Black makes any figure, shape and size – look longer and leaner. And it’s so sleek!

Easy AF | By far the easiest color to dress up or dress down. Black jeans with a t-shirt and sneakers by day. Swap out with a heel + blazer and you’re instantly dressed up! Having great basics like this in my closet are a MUST!

Accessorize AF | Black is basically a blank canvas. So anything goes. You can always keep it simple with jewelry. Or bust out all the bright + fun pieces and let the jewelry be the statement. Add a leopard belt. Or a bright scarf.

Classic AF | It’s one of the most classic colors in your closet. Black will NEVER go out of style! When you dress in classic colors + pieces you will instantly look + feel put together with little effort.

{thai turkey + carrots}

Happy Hump Day peeps! Tonight is our annual annual family pumpkin carving competition. Debating if I want to get tips…..or carve a pumpkin. Hummmm! Plus we’re celebrating my Dad’s birthday. I foresee lots of red wine. Mom’s Famous Chicken Tortilla Casserole (it’s a tradition) and laughing till we (almost) pee our pants. It’s just how we roll.

I haven’t shared a recipe in a bit, so I thought I better get one up today.

If you’re down with healthy + easy + flavorful + one pan meals….

Then I got you!

I made this Thai Turkey + Carrots dish last month. It was so good, I made it the other night. I was craving it. Then I realized I never shared the recipe with you guys.

Think turkey cooked in coconut milk + broth with and all the yummy spices. You get sweet + spicy + salty all in one.

This legit takes 15 minutes. It’s clean AF. Weight Watchers friendly. The only ingredients that have points value is the coconut milk and peanuts. Everything else is ZERO! I picked up all my ingredients at good ol Trader Joe’s. Except for the Franck hot sauce. Which you should already have in your fridge. Because that shit is bomb!

{chicken ravioli bake}

Happy Hump day friends.

Very important question: What is the casserole that reminds you of your childhood? Good or bad. The casserole your mom made weekly. Because god knows, casseroles were all the rage!

Mine would have to be {Mom’s Famous Chicken Tortilla Casserole}

Sharing and old, like really, really old. Like 2005-ish old. So, basically this recipe is older than my kid? Crazy to think I’ve been making this longer than she’s been alive…lol!
