A Tale of Two Cities: Foodie Sisters Wining and Dining in D.C. & Boston

Caramelized Onion & Mushroom Mini Pizzas

Growing up, every once in a while on Sunday nights, especially cold ones, my mom would tell us we’d be making homemade pizza for dinner. She would use puff pastry and combine the sheets into one large pizza, as  big as we could fit on a sheet pan, and each of us would get to […]

Crunchy Chickpea & Avocado Salad

Happy Thursday everyone! Today’s post will be short and sweet as this week is a little crazy- getting back into the swing of things after a big holiday break is always the worst isn’t it?! This salad is incredibly cheap and simple to create.  It’s also basic enough to add in other salad-toppers you may […]

Blueberry Cinnamon Overnight Oats

Happy January! I hope you’ve all thought of a resolution or two this year… although I honestly can never really stick to mine.  They’re usually just so drastic.  For example, once I tried to give up french fries for an entire year.  Not only is this kind of silly, but just downright unreasonable.  To never have […]

Classic Chicken and Dumplings

Welcome to 2018! We hope everyone had a Happy New Year and a wonderful holiday season! While we were blessed with ample time spent with friends and family, I also happened to receive one of the items on my all-time wish list for Christmas: my first Le Creuset dutch oven, which I insisted on breaking […]

Holiday Coconut Snowflake Protein Balls

Happy Christmas Eve everyone! Regardless of which holiday you celebrate, I hope you and yours have a wonderful, safe, and delicious holiday season.  Madison and I are celebrating with our loved ones and eating LOTS of yummy staples like turkey, mashed cauliflower, and pie! If you’re adhering to a strict diet right now like me, […]

Foodie Stocking Stuffers

We’ve heard from several of you that Maddy’s post this week on holiday gift ideas for foodies was really helpful, so we’re continuing that theme with a post on 10 stocking stuffers any foodie would enjoy!  I absolutely LOVE stocking stuffers… opening my stocking is maybe my favorite part of Christmas morning.  When Madison and […]

DIY: Making Your Own Herb-Infused Olive Oil

Happy December 1st! First of all, I can’t believe 2017 is almost over, and I have to say I’m kind of relieved.  Between the orange buffoon toying with the idea of nuclear war and Lyme disease, all I want to do is enjoy the holidays and ring in a (hopefully) pleasant 2018.  But before that […]

The Pioneer Woman’s Braised Short Ribs

The moral of this story is: don’t be afraid of a challenge (and also, I need a Dutch oven). Instead of detoxing after Thanksgiving, I went in the complete opposite direction and decided to attempt a dish that while one of my favorite indulgent things to eat, has always intimidated me: short ribs! No time […]

Cauliflower Shrimp & Olive Pizza

Happy almost Thanksgiving everyone! Madison and I will be heading to see our dad’s side of the family in Harrisburg, PA this Thursday and are mentally preparing for the feast ahead.  I realized I might have some difficult though, as I’m still not consuming much gluten, dairy, or sugar.  Lucky for me, a juicy piece […]
