Thai Coconut Chicken Noodles AKA Hairs

Picture this- 8 girls, one kitchen and 6 months in Florence Italy. It sounds like the start to a great sit com right? It pretty much was. Italy was undoubtedly one of the best experiences of my life, and the food being a major reason for that. Endless fresh pasta, pizza, wine and gelato while roaming through the streets of Florence with some of my best friends? I am so grateful and stupid lucky.    What I didn’t expect however, was to come back with a new favorite Thai recipe that remains an all time favorite. No matter how much you love cheese and carbs, and trust me, I am a HUGE fan, you eventually […]

Lemon Dijon Chicken

So, it’s day 2 of the whole 30 (the second attempt) and I’ve already dropped the ball on being organized and meal prepping. This, I can already tell, and yes I have read over & over, is the key to succeeding on this change in eating.

This recipe has become a weeknight staple for Adam & I! It’s simple, warm & comforting and can be made to be a little lighter for a “skinny” version or more luxurious aka carbs & extra cheese.

We eat a lot of chicken because it’s simple, cheap to be honest and can be made a million different ways.  This is a nice version to make the rotation of chicken & veggie dishes a tad more exciting. Plus- a simple delicious version of broccoli on the side helps add to it. I’ve been reminded […]

Sheet Pan Tandoori Chicken

Enter a delicious, easy clean up, sheet pan dinner! You can make it ahead & let it marinate for up to a day. Adam and I follow the “whoever cooks doesn’t clean” rule, but with two people who equally love to cook and equally hate the dishes, it often results in rock paper scissor battles OR, the worst method…. who can out wait the other. But- this recipe is the easiest clean up ever. You fold up the tin foil and throw it away! TADA! Leaving more time for your evening routine- whether that be Netflix binging, reading, exercising (go you) or putting kiddo’s to bed.  Plus- did I mention it’s delicious? Do not let […]
