{mexican style zucchini}

Another question? What do you serve with your tacos? Like a side dish?

{the perfect fall salad}

With the Fall weather we tend to go with more hearty soups + pastas. But, this girl still craves a good green salad. I’m currently hooked on arugula. It’s so pepper + delish, I can eat it daily and not get sick of it. I’m really trying to be better at sharing recipes so today felt like the perfect day to share this goody!

{peloton 30-day review}

SHOP: Relaxed Breathe ON Twist-Hem Cropped Top ($14)Zella Studio Crop Lite Leggings 

Back on July 13th, the day all the gyms in California were shut down for the second time since covid. I got a wild hair and pulled the trigger on one of the biggest purchase. A Peloton bike.

Not going to lie, I instantly had nerve turds…ha! What if I don’t use it? What if I hate it? What if it’s not worth the money? Or all the hype?

It’s been 30-days and I feel confident enough to give an honest review……

{sheet pan salmon}

You guys – I wrote in my Intentions for the week to share a recipe. And here ya go. Holding myself to it. Last night I made my famous (not really lol) {sheet pan sausage + veggies}. I’m a BIG fan of sheet pan meals.

The clean up is key for week nights. And they’re typically pretty healthy recipes….protein + veggies.

Did I mention, I no longer have a dishwasher? I AM the dishwasher. Ha! Our little old 1950’s house has no dishwasher. We plan to do a kitchen renovation in about 6 months….fingers crossed. And a dishwasher is at the tip-pity top of my “must have” list.

I was always one to store my dirty dishes in the dishwasher. Until it was full, then run it. Anyone else?

And I made my sheet pan sausage + veggies last night, it reminded me of this salmon dish I made a few weeks ago. I snapped photos and planned to share it the next day. Then I probably decided to blog about Target or something.

{copycat starbucks egg bites}

You guys, I hate to say it, but can 2020 get any worse? I take that back. Yes, yes it can. Everyday it’s something new + different. Not good stuff either. My heart breaks for all the fire victims.

I did see, possibly, the best covid new to date. Holy Rosary is doing a drive-thru fair taco fundraiser. I might camp out the night before. Anyone wanna join me? Save the dates 8/29 – 8/30. Holy Rosary Community Center on California Street. I’ll see you there!

On my weekly intentions, I’m going to add: Share a recipe. I miss sharing writing up yummy recipes. Then seeing you guys recreate them in your kitchen. So, I’m going to be better at it.

Anyone else is obsessed with the Starbucks egg bites? They are such a great healthy + quick option for breakfast. And I’ve found a way to make them very similarly but with your oven at home! No fancy equipment needed, just a little water bath and a muffin tray.

{quarantine survival kit}

SHOP: Pajama Top (sized up) | Jogger Pants | Slippers | Yeti Cup

All the rules go out the window during self isolation: wanna drink at 9 am, do it. Stay in your pj’s all day, why not? Let your kids watch TV for 8 hours, 🤷🏼‍♀️ Eat all the quarantine snacks, fuck it. Do at-home workouts or sit on the couch, you do you!

We’re all just surviving🥂

I was thinking about the “things” that are legit keeping me sane at the moment. I’m sure we’ve all got a handful of must-haves. Here’s list of shit I must have or that I’m crazy grateful for right now!

{pf chang’s lettuce wraps}

Happy Hump Day friends! I’m trying my best to be peppy AF, but to be honest – I’m not feeling it. Politics. Coronavirus. Nashville. It’s just kinda sad, you know what I mean? And I gave up beer + wine, so I can’t even self medicate (my favorite way) at the end of the day.

Since I don’t have much to say – let’s keep it short + sweet! How about a bomb ass recipe?

{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!
