Cinco De Mayo was yesterday! Lots of people think it’s Mexico’s independence day but it’s actually a date to commemorate the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Not that I need an excuse to eat Mexican food, but it definitely inspired me to try something I haven’t done… Continue reading Chicken Al Pastor
It’s not often that I write a blog containing multiple recipes, but I’ve been eating so many damn mushrooms lately, I had to make an exception. Also, does anyone read this part of the blog? When I’m looking for a recipe I tend to scroll through all the yapping and go straight to the good… Continue reading MUSHROOMS! breakfast, lunch & dinner.
JULIA YOU CAN’T CALL IT PULLED PORK IF YOU’RE NOT USING PORK. WHY DON’T YOU JUST CALL IT JACKFRUIT AND BBQ SAUCE ON A BUN?! A) Because that sounds weird.

Who wants to “eat with Julia” when they… Continue reading Bargain Black Bean Soup

Sometimes I don’t even feel like going outside to get groceries but I do it anyway because… Continue reading Julia’s Two Bean Beef Chili
Seriously. I have been craving chicken ALL week. The past few days have been pretty hectic and it seemed like every other minute I was heading to a holiday party and gorging my face on cheese and Swedish meatballs. That being said, I defrosted a whole chicken and I needed to cook it before it… Continue reading I feel like Chicken!

I started my new food week off right by making a beef stew. When I think beef stew I think root vegetables and red wine. I opted for a lighter version using kale, white beans and white wine. White wine and beef? Am I crazy? Crazy smart, that is! It still gives it a beautiful… Continue reading Beef, Kale and White Bean Stew
