This easy, healthy cilantro pesto is a great way to change up the usual basil pesto and is a delicious accompaniment to many meals. Hi guys! Happy Wednesday (and Happy Birthday to my Madre)! 🙂 I unofficially dub this week sauces and spreads week on the blog. First the chia jam, and now this lovely…

Berry Lemon Chia Jam

I started a new thing where if we’re out of something, I’ll try to make it from scratch. This doesn’t work for the obvious staples (like eggs. We go through 172 each week), but little things like almond butter and jam. Berry Lemon Chia Seed Jam One night, I was packing Livi’s lunch up for…

Homemade Acai Bowls

Along with the handful of bases where we’ve been stationed, there’s also a corresponding food that will bring back fond memories of that assignment. Despite the glorious Southern food that we were surrounded with, our Valdosta food was Indian cuisine: soaked up with fresh naan and enjoyed with our close friends. Our Tucson food was…

Plantains: the Other, Other Vegetable

I’m going to go ahead and count today as my first time time cooking with plantains. (I’m smiling in the photo, but am also a little afraid) Cooking with Plantains Ok, so there was the one Mexican party we threw when I made an awesome slow-cooked chicken and plantain dish… but that was years ago.…

Pho-nomenal

After my first at-home chicken pho experience, I’m convinced that it’s kind of like enchiladas: intimidating until you actually do it and realize how easy it is. Ok, so pho is a little more time-intensive, and you can’t exactly throw anything you have into the mix (like enchiladas! Enjoy this butternut squash, bean, goat cheese,…

Chicken Tortilla Soup for the Soul

Little lovebug woke up coughing yesterday. Thankfully, as of now, it sounds fairly superficial -like a little summer cold/ick- but I’ve been trying to think of ways to soothe her throat and stop the coughing. She had some warm mint tea in her sippy cup yesterday morning (loved it!), and for dinner, it was chicken…

3-Minute Skinny Peppermint Mocha

Starbucks! They know me! Source I tend to stay away for the most part during the warmer months.. (which, let’s be real, is 97% of the time in Tucson.) I can make my own coffee at home, and save for the occasional iced green tea lemonade, it’s rare that I’ll hit up the SB drive…

Sparkling Lemonade Iced Tea

Sparkling lemonade iced tea is a refreshing drink to cool off with as we head into these warmer months. It’s sweetened with Stevia, so you can enjoy a sweet drink without the sugar rush.  I had an amazing weekend with amazing people, and I’m also wicked sore from teaching on Saturday. My biceps are killing me!…

Homemade Strawberry Sports Drink

Enjoy this homemade strawberry sports drink to hydrate before or after a workout. At a bar in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, they have the best infusions…fresh fruit soaking in vodka, which tastes dangerously like candy. That’s all I can remember to tell you about those drinks. This strawberry infusion is a little bit healthier, and will help…

Healthy Egg Salad

The Pilot and I have always had pretty clear ideas of who does what in our little household. We each have our own *jobs*, from the normal everyday stuff (I cook, he does dishes, he vaccuums, I Swiffer and clean everything else, he takes out the trash and recycling), to the more unusual stuff. Like…
