Easy Garlic Hummus

I'm not usually an organic nut. I buy it when I can, but I don't fret over whether or not something is organic, or whether there's a few ingredients I can't pronounce. If I'm buying a Reeses or a bag of French fries - which, admittedly, doesn't happen often nowadays - I'm not freaking out about the long ...

Managing Depression While Traveling

That title can't be right, can it? No, the word "depression" doesn't belong in the same sentence with the word "travel." If Pinterest is to be believed, and I'm 100% sure it is, then travel is a magical potion that fixes things like anxiety and depression and causes you to live in a perpetual state of ...

Creamy Chicken Stuffed Peppers

I have a confession to make: I'm a chronic pepper-purchaser. Now, in the grand scheme of addiction, on a scale from biting your nails to meth, constantly buying too many peppers probably falls more toward the "biting your nails" side of things.

In spite of the fact that I ...

Overnight Banana Cacao Oatmeal

I'll be honest guys, I was late to the overnight oats party. It was one of those trends that I wrote off when it first popped up, like the salad in a jar and all those other Pinterest miracles. Once I actually gave it a fair shot, though, it was life-changing. I love waking up to a filling breakfast, ...

Breaded Cod With White Wine Marinade

When it comes to marinades, I firmly believe that seafood takes the cake in the flavor department. They are top notch when it comes to soaking flavors in, all the way to the core, so that every bite is perfect. Cod is especially good because as it cooks, the surface breaks apart and all the marinade ...
