Fake chicken as good as a the real deal?
Beyond Meat, a new company based in Maryland, has come up with an alternative to chicken meat that it claims is a dead ringer for the real thing. And unlike other meat alternatives on the market, this one aims to be cheap as well as tasty. The idea behind this new lean, mean protein is to break away from the boring vegan options and hopefully introduce meat-eaters to a meat-free alternative....
Healthy Banana Peanut Butter Cups
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been bringing homemade peanut butter cups to Thanksgiving dinner. They’re always a hit and I’ve definitely mastered the art of throwing them together quickly! Unfortunately with my sweet tooth, I could eat 10 of them at a time.. I will eat anything with chocolate and peanut butter! Of course this means I had to figure out a way to make them...
Butternut Squash Soup
With the weather in Baltimore practically changing seasons daily, I find myself craving some comfort foods on the cooler days so I decided to breakout an old favorite! This soup is so silky and smooth, and doesn’t use any cream, so you won’t feel bad about have a second helping! Butternut Squash Soup Ingredients 2.5-3 lb butternut squash 2 small sweet potatoes 1 large sweet onion...
Woodberry Kitchen: A Foodie's Paradise
Last Wednesday, I was thrilled to be able to share my fabulous dinner at our favorite restaurant; Woodberry Kitchen. We have spent Nathan’s last 3 birthdays here. It’s one of the few farm-to-table restaurants in the Baltimore area and they are serious about their ingredients. Woodberry Kitchen relies on longstanding relationships with the growers of the Chesapeake to provide the...
"KIND" Bar Crumbles
Before every vacation I scour the internet looking for fun, healthy snacks that are easy to take with us and with our upcoming Cali trip, I was on the prowl! Bars are always the way to go, so why wouldn’t I attempt to make one of our favorites? KIND Bars are the real deal. I found this recipe from Peas and Thank You for homemade KIND bars and decided to take that and run! “KIND”...
Remember wayyyyy back (an entire week ago!) when I mentioned dressing up my Crispy Almond Coconut Chicken? Well today we play dress up! I have a new-found appreciation for pineapple and have been putting it in everything! With all of the fresh fruit coming into season now, I’ve been wanting to incorporate it more into our meals, rather than just snacks and a summer salsa was just the way to...
What I Ate Wednesday #1
Welcome to my very first WIAW! Lucky for you, or maybe me, there happens to be a birthday dinner included at my very favorite restaurant, Woodberry Kitchen. Everything was so incredible, as always, that I’m just giving you a little taste of the delicious bites today, but there will most certainly be a post in the near future with the entire meal! Breakfast I tried a new recipe for the...
Mexican Stuffed Peppers
When it’s time to go the store but you just don’t have time, you have to learn to get creative! I scoured the fridge and pantry and decided there was no better time to clean out. And my favorite part about this recipe is that while this time I made it Mexican style, you can change up the veggies and spices, and make whatever you want! Mexican Stuffed Peppers Serves 4 Ingredients 2...
Baltimore Farmers' Market
A few weeks ago the Baltimore Farmers’ Market opened up for the season. This has to be my favorite Sunday activity; a nice long walk in the warm weather and sunshine, deciding what I’m going to have for breakfast, and what deliciously fresh fruits and veggies we will get (you really can’t beat a salad with fresh lettuce from the market!) Today I decided to try something new for...
Crispy Almond Coconut Chicken
I recently made chicken that my fiance absolutely flipped over. To say that he loves chicken would be the understatement of the century; he’s practically the Bubba of chicken, but fried chicken is most definitely the way to his heart and this recipe got his seal of approval. Crispy Almond Coconut Chicken Recipe adapted from How Sweet it is makes 4 servings Ingredients 2 boneless,...
