The Dinna Ladies

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

Healthy Tips & Tricks for the Flying Foodie

Happy Friday everyone! Sorry I’ve been MIA lately (and a big thanks to Dinna Lady Madison for picking up my slack!) but I have a good reason I promise.  Last week my boyfriend and I headed to Vancouver and Whistler to enjoy some fresh pow and cool mountain air.  If you’ve never been and even remotely […]

Sausage and Eggplant Arrabbiata

Valentine’s Day is on our minds this week, and if we were staying in for a homemade meal, we’d want it to be a little bit spicy and a little bit sweet, just like our love (lol). Now personally, I am trying to get OUT of the kitchen in exchange for date night at a […]

Super Bowl Sunday Gluten-Free Pizza

Happy Friday everyone! This weekend is a big one… it’s Super Bowl Sunday!!  I’d be lying if I said I paid much attention to football this season, but that doesn’t mean I’m not gonna root like the Ma$$hole I am for the Patriots (lol Tom). Regardless of your team affiliation, I’m gonna guess that you […]

Honey Sriracha Chicken

Winner, winner chicken dinner! Sriracha is a worldwide phenomenon by now, and it can be found all over the place in dipping sauces, marinades, and on many restaurant menus. Some people even carry bottles in their purses – I’m serious. However, given my extreme distaste for Tabasco (we were given spoonfuls of Tabasco as kids […]

Smoothies for Dinna Part 2

While I’m very much your sit-down-and-cut-into-a-juicy-steak kinda girl in terms of dinners, there is absolutely something to be said for subbing in a smoothie.  If you’re selective about the proper ingredients, these babies can be both nutritious and filling.  My eyes are definitely bigger than my stomach, so I’m still surprised when I’m struggling to […]

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, […]
