Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Spicy Sriracha Glaze

Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Spicy Sriracha Glaze

It kind of seems like I only eat vegetables and cookies if we’re considering this space of internet a reflection of my eating habits. And that’s kind of true. (I actually have another cookie recipe for you coming up!) I tend to lean more toward the vegetable end. I eat vegetables with every meal. Like literally. (In the literal sense, not that crazy figurative sense that people seem to say.) I eat a breakfast salad daily, which is essentially vegetables…

Kale and Sun-Dried Tomato Spaghetti Squash Casserole

Kale and Sun-Dried Tomato Spaghetti Squash Casserole

John and I typically have about 10-15 minutes between patients around 2ish where we typically call that time “lunch.” Oh, we totally do that to ourselves. I’m obsessed with the thought of efficiency (to like the point of self-destruction in some cases) If I’m going to be at work for 12 hours, I want to be see patients for 11.5-11.75 hours. (Enter: self-destruction when I do that 4 days per week with a shorter Friday for weeks on end.)  …

Chocolate Pistachio Date Truffles

Chocolate Pistachio Date Truffles

Ok. So these really aren’t truffles per se. But I couldn’t get myself to call these Chocolate Pistachio Date Balls.

Unlike truffles, they’re dairy free and naturally sweetened only with dates! BUT, while we’re on the topic. Names like “energy balls/bites” are a great…

Birthday Gratitude

Birthday Gratitude

So my birthday is tomorrow. My 30th birthday. I’m currently in San Diego with John. Well technically we’re in Coronado at the Hotel Del Coronado. And I’ve been thinking a lot (one of my favorite pastimes.) I’ve been thinking about milestones. Those milestones always have a way of making me take a step back and reflect. With my day mostly occupied of very specific, relatively small, blocks of time, otherwise known as appointments, it’s easy for me to forget the…

Dijon Cashew Cream

Dijon Cashew Cream

When I was a kid I thought that I didn’t like sandwiches. Like any kind other than peanut butter and jelly. Turns out that’s still mostly true. However, one day I was eating a sandwich (the bad kind, the non-PBJ kind) at my neighbor’s house and realized that I do, in fact, like sandwiches. I just don’t like mayonnaise. My mom happens to like mayonnaise, so she put that on our sandwiches. Me? Not so much. Even the name sounds…
