Recipe: Clementine Creamsicle Chia Pudding

Yay, it's citrus season! When I entered the market on a particularly cold and cloudy day this past weekend, I was immediately drawn to brightness of the fresh lemons, limes, grapefruits, and oranges. I knew I had to make SOMETHING with citrus. So, I left the store with clementines and blueberries (because I thought they … Continue reading Recipe: Clementine Creamsicle Chia Pudding

Recipe: Gluten-free Dairy-free Devil’s Food Cake (that doesn’t suck!)

This weekend marked the annual end of Daylight Savings Time here in Cambridge. Halloween is over, the sun sets before 5pm, and WINTER IS COMING. *dies* Despite growing up in New England, I'm not that fond of winter.

Recipe: Gluten-free Pumpkin Breakfast Bites with Cream Cheese (Protein!) Frosting

For someone who "isn't a pumpkin spice person," I've certainly been cooking with it a lot lately. This week, it's pumpkin breakfast bites - partly because they're festive fall fare and partly because I've been craving cake for breakfast.

Recipe: Sweet and Spicy Sesame Slaw

I'm Vietnamese-American. Growing up, my family actually ate more typical American fare than Southeast Asian food - which is a shame, because I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. Thai and Vietnamese spice profiles are truly a taste odyssey and can be a fun exercise for the palate. The balance of heat with sweet, sour with savory, and … Continue reading Recipe: Sweet and Spicy Sesame Slaw

My Journey: I got in a car accident, tidied up my apartment, and found myself

Sometime in early 2016 I "KonMari"-ed my life. I had just been in a car accident, gone through a break up, and moved to a new apartment all within a two-week span. With my room littered with moving boxes and hastily thrown together trash bags of clothes that I was too concussed to deal with, … Continue reading My Journey: I got in a car accident, tidied up my apartment, and found myself

Recipe: Every Season Roasted Corn Salsa

I'm pretty sure that everything is better roasted and charred. Meats, veggies, and most certainly, corn! In my last attempts to cling to summer, I decided to incorporate some Mexican-esque recipes into my weekly meal prep. Roasted corn salsa is one of my favorites - so naturally, it had to be made. This recipe is … Continue reading Recipe: Every Season Roasted Corn Salsa

Current Feels: Post Anxiety

Regarding that title: I think I unintentionally just created a term for the state you experience after anxiety or maybe the anxiety you have surrounding blog posts. Either way, it's perfect for today's post! ;D Full disclosure: I have an anxiety disorder and I've been experiencing a lot of self-doubt this week, particularly as it … Continue reading Current Feels: Post Anxiety

Recipe: Warm Kale and Apple Salad

Despite it being mid-October, it doesn't really feel like autumn yet in Cambridge. My commute to work has been filled with falling leaves, people sipping pumpkin spice lattes, and 80 degree weather. My soul has been longing for fall flavors for weeks, but my body and the atmosphere seem to still be feeling summer. In … Continue reading Recipe: Warm Kale and Apple Salad

Recipe: Craving Crusher Brownie Batter Protein Shake

Fun fact: the day I developed this recipe, I was experiencing the worst pre-menstrual symptoms I have in years. I'm talking legit make-a-bowl-of-brownie-batter-and-eat-it-kinds-of-cravings bad. Using my better judgement and letting the inklings of the horrific stomach-ache-to-come be my guide, I decided to whip up this cup of happy instead. The potassium in the avocado is … Continue reading Recipe: Craving Crusher Brownie Batter Protein Shake
