BBQ Chicken Pizza

We’ve been having a lot of last minute dinners recently– aka we have stocked up on Trader Joe’s frozen pizzas. These dinners are quick and delicious, but I it really doesn’t take too long to make something just as delicious and fresher. The key is having the ingredients on hand, and that’s something I need to work on– having more… Continue reading

Chicken Spinach Enchiladas Verde

Every feel like your life is too busy, and you’re always on the go?  Us too! We used to cook at home every night and then spend evenings hanging out on the couch.  Now, it’s rare for us to have a night where all we do is spend it with each other.  We run from the gym to meetings to… Continue reading

Green Leaf’s and a Giveaway

  I have been a little MIA lately because travel season has begun in the wonderful world of Admissions!  I really do love traveling for work– seeing new places, catching up with friends– but the thing I hate is how I can’t eat healthy.  Well, I guess I can, but it’s so hard on the road, especially in airports. Some… Continue reading

Founding Farmers

Almost two months ago, I was in DC for a conference.  We went to the zoo, I ate at Mike Isabella’s restaurant (you’ve heard all this before in previous posts), but I left out another tasty restaurant right in the heart of DC. Founding Farmers.  The restaurant is eco-friendly, it is owned by a collective of American family farmers, and… Continue reading

Do you love Top Chef as much as I do?!?  Well, you should!  I have a lot about cooking from watching each season, and it also helped me to expand my palette and try new things. Problem now is that I don’t have cable, so no shows, and especially Bravo shows come into my home in the evening My friend… Continue reading

Restaurant Review: Williamsburg’s The Trellis

For Austin’s birthday (it was April 30, so I’m posting a little late…), we splurged (both money wise and points) and went to the Trellis, a delicious restaurant right in the heart of Colonial Williamsburg. We had a great meal!  It started with the best assortment of bread ever:  focaccia with olive oil, cornbread with honey butter, and pretzel bread… Continue reading

Food in Nelson County– Part 2

Yum– that pretty sums up everything about the food we had during our mid-week weekend.  Every meal was better than the last. First dinner was at the Blue Toad Pub.  It was right down the road from the Inn.  They had bottled beer representing every state, but of course, we got beer that was brewed right down the street at… Continue reading

I Heart Panera

When I have to eat on the run and am eating out, I almost always pick Panera.  It is delicious.  The first couple times I visited, I was so confused when ordering, but years later, I think I’ve finally gotten the hang of it. In college, the nearest Panera was 45 minutes away, and on more than one occasion, I loaded… Continue reading

tawanna Thai

I have an obsession with thai food– but when I say thai food, I mean very generic and americanized pad thai and curry.  So delicious and minimally spicy.  Whenever I travel, I want to get more of the authentic thing.  In LA last week, I was able to spend some in the Miracle Mile area, eat delicious thai food with… Continue reading
