Before I say anything about the process of making these, I just gotta say...these are AMAZING! You know how sometimes you cook something and once you taste it you're like "damn, I'm good" - I experienced that with this.
Everyone knows what comfort food is. Some comfort foods are universally agreed upon (mac and cheese, anyone?) and others are comforting on a much more personal level.
Some of my favorite comfort foods are sunny side up eggs with buttered toast, pierogies fried in butter and sprinkled with sugar, and american grilled cheese on wheat bread. These foods aren't necessarily the healthiest, though they remind me of childhood in the best way! If we're gonna talk about comfort sweets, however...my number one is banana bread.
If you live in the Northeast, then you know today's weather has been UNREAL. It is so beautiful outside! I've been in a pretty stubborn funk the last few months (hence my absence of regular blogging) but today's weather has been inspiring. In a pretty great way, too, because this broccoli slaw is insanely good.
Whether you're enjoying the spring-like warmth or actually living in the month of February, this slaw goes great with any light or heavy main dish you may be cooking up tonight.
Can you believe we are already in the homestretch of fall? Feels like I was at the beach soaking up the sun just yesterday! And suddenly Thanksgiving is only a few days away. How?!
Thanksgiving coming up means I'm going to want to balance out the heaviest meal of the year with plenty of light meals. This fall-themed salad is the perfect meal in the days leading up to the holiday season. Plus it's a great healthy addition to your Thanksgiving spread if you make a large batch of it!
About a month ago I took a trip to Whole Foods by my apartment. Often I am going for one or two specific things and I end up leaving with way more than I anticipated. This trip was no different.
I can't remember what I had set out to buy on that trip, but I can tell you I took a trip down the bulk bin aisle and the rest is history. One of my impulse buys? A big ol' bag of raw almonds.
I'm a young adult living it up in Brooklyn. I love cooking, baking, crafting, crocheting - you name it! Most of what I cook is healthy for you (and equally delicious) with the occasional "yolo" meal. My passion truly lies with inspiring others not only to cook at home but to try new foods in the process!
