Pineapple Ginger Chicken Stir-Fry

Lately, I seem to have developed a random obsession with asking everyone I know to tell me their go-to favorite meal that they make most often for dinner at home.  Not the kind of dinner that they maybe aspire to make all of the time (you know, the 100% local, organic,...

Tomato-Rubbed Bread (Pa Amb Tomàqet)

Oh my goodness, you guys…Barcelona.  💛 We’ve only been home from our trip to Spain for a little over two weeks, but I would seriously pack up my bags and head back over again in a heartbeat.  This city absolutely stole my heart. And based on a quick scroll through the...

Pozole Rojo

One of my random cooking goals for 2017 is to learn more about cooking with dried chile peppers.  🎉 I’m always passing by them at the grocery store that I frequent most in Kansas City, which is beloved for its epic selection of Latin American favorites.  From soft homemade tortillas, to...

20-Minute Thai Basil Chicken

As excited as I am to be moving into Barclay’s house when we get married in June, I’m definitely starting to feel All The Feels about leaving the River Market in downtown Kansas City — the neighborhood I’ve called home for these past five years. Gosh, there are a million...

Brussels Sprouts and Bacon Flatbread

Italian Orzo Spinach Soup

One of my good friends has a rule that none of us are allowed to complain about the weather here in Kansas City when we’re around her. 😉 Somehow, though, this still happens all the time, since it always seems to be “unseasonably” something-or-other.  There’s always someone lamenting about the lack of snow this...

Hummus and Veggie Breakfast Bowls

I feel like I’m probably forever going to be a procrastinator when it comes to trip planning. Especially with meals.  🙄 I always so look forward to eating out and trying new places on vacation, and always aspire to doing my research and asking for recommendations and actually having a plan for...

Oaxacan Rusty Nail

I realized the other day that it has been forever since I’ve shared a new cocktail recipe here on the blog.  I think it’s high time to remedy that… …with some mezcal.  🥃 🇲🇽 🤗 🙌🏻 Barclay and I are still on a smoky cocktails kick this year.  (Well,...
