Zucchini Noodle Caprese “Pasta”

Zucchini Noodle Caprese Pasta

Ever since my wedding day, I've been on an all pasta and chocolate diet (side note, this is not healthy). I've now realized that I had my fun and it's time for me to get back into a healthier lifestyle. I've been wanting to try zucchini noodles for a while, but the thought of getting my bulky spiralizer (that I've never even used) out of storage seemed so daunting. Then, I was sent a miracle product called the Chelsydale's Dual Blade Julienne Vegetable Peeler and it has officially cured my ... [ Read More ]

Panang Curry with Fried Tofu

panang curry

It's only been about a two weeks since I left Thailand, but I'm already missing the incredible food. One of my favorite dishes I had while I was out there was Panang Curry. It's a sweeter, milder curry and I thought it would be fun to try and recreate it based on memory last night! It's very rare that I create a bomb recipe the first time, but I managed to do it with this one!

Mango Brie Panini (an homage to Hamilton College)

Mango Brie Panini

Tucked away on top of a hill in Clinton, NY, sits one of my favorite places on earth. This picturesque oasis is called Hamilton College. For those of you who aren't familiar with Hamilton, it's a tiny (but mighty) liberal arts school with some of the best academic programs the entire country. From 2008-2011, I had the pleasure of working there, getting to know the students, the campus culture and most importantly, their life-changing Mango Brie Panini sandwich. Hands down, this is one of the ... [ Read More ]
