Recipe: Olive and Spinach Pasta

Delicious carbs and pastaaaaaa. What I love most about pasta is that no matter what your diet is, you can usually find substitutes for the pasta or noodles to whatever fits your eating habits. For this dish, since it’s meatless and dairy-free, I like to use a whole wheat spaghetti noodle since it’s more filling…

Video: Fancyfied Electric Lemon Bars

In a new video for my “Grub & Gab” series that I’m posting on YouTube, I decided to make a fancyfied version of my Electric Lemon Bars. It’s a really simple and super easy addition, but creates a delicious twist to a classic dessert. All you have to do is add put a layer of jam…

Someone at work was highly generous and brought in a near tree’s worth of Meyer lemons. Of course I grabbed some up and in return made lemon bars to share with my coworkers. Since then, everyone has been asking me for the recipe and here it is! This is a recipe I’ve been making for…

Is it just me or are a lot of cooking and recipe videos floating around social media really annoying and obnoxious? I know music is copyrighted and there’s a limited pool of free-use songs, but it seems like everyone picks the same obnoxious song. Since I couldn’t really find the cooking videos that I liked…

Recommended: Citrus Bundt Cake from Baking Bites

Bundt cakes are one of my favorite types of cake to bake when bringing it over to someone’s house. I like to think of it as a casual elegant dessert. It looks really fancy, but there isn’t much work involved in making it so presentable – unlike a layered cake with frosting. I had an…

Recipe: Fish Baked in Foil with Tomatoes and Couscous.

My favorite way to eat fish is baked in a foil pouch. It keeps the fish tender and moist, plus it makes a pretty awesome sauce to go over a starch. I like couscous for this dish since it soaks up the flavor of the sauce. There’s a few components to the dish and several steps,…

Recipe: Pixie’s Easy Hummus

I am a hummus fanatic. I like to eat it as a snack with veggies or crackers. If I’m out of salad dressing, I like to put a few dollops of hummus into my salad. I also like to use it as a sandwich spread since I do not like mayonnaise. Hummus is also part…

Recipe: Cold Quinoa Veggie Salad

Quinoa is one of my new favorite things to make. It’s like couscous, but nuttier. It soaks up the flavor of what ever you’re cooking it with. It’s very filling. It’s delicious hot or cold. And it’s quick and easy to make! I’ve made this salad many times before. When I’ve brought it to potlucks, there…
