Grilled Sweet Potaters – Two Ways

  I’ve got Fourth of July on the brain and I can’t stop (won’t stop) thinking about how epic it’s going to be (the fireworks, the friends, boating, booze, Beer Olympics, and of course the BBQ). There’s going to be a whopping 20 of us camping together and everyone is responsible for bringing a side…

Betches Who Lunch- Easiest, Tastiest Spread Ever

Things have been b to the u-s-y lately, but despite the chaos a girl’s still gotta eat. Lunches are typically my least fave because I’m always in a rush and don’t have much time to prepare and sit down to a nice, leisurely meal like with dinner or weekend brunches. However I’ve recently shaken things…

Betches Who Brunch- A Mother’s Day Special

I’m sure we all know by now that Mother’s Day is this Sunday, and I plan on cooking my ma up some delicious brunch.

I could honestly eat these dishes every week which isn’t a bad thing considering how nutrient-packed and surprisingly healthy they are! So make them today, or make them all year long. There’s absolutely no…

Vegan Chargrilled Chile Relleno with a Quinoa, Black Bean & Corn Stuffing

This time of year, every year, my obsession for Mexican food is borderline LOCO (crazy). I’m not sure if it’s the sunny weather that tends to have me craving refreshing, easy meals like veggie tacos seasoned with fresh cilantro and lime, or annual spring getaways to Mexico where I eat enough guacamole to feed a…

Spring Detox Salad

So far, this spring has been a busy one! In the past month I’ve jetted off to the Riviera Maya in Mexico for a week with the MLB, trekked to Minnesota (where it SNOWED) for a business trip, and spent last weekend wine-tasting in Walla Walla with my main betches. My adventures included tons of…

Earth Day Buddha Bowl (Because saving the environment is #sohotrightnow)

Yo, did you know today is Earth Day? If you’ve checked Facebook or googled anything then chances are you probably do. But besides another reason/excuse to update your social media or pimp out a themed blog post, Earth Day is the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. The passage…

#sohotrightnow Spring Edition

I always feel like the weather dictates many of my posts, but I believe as the seasons shift our bodies do as well, and we want and need seasonal foods to accommodate (i.e. winter- comfort foods like soup and pasta to bring us warmth and fill us up, spring- a time of new beginnings and…

Cream of Asparagus Soup

Now I’m not sure if I should actually admit this, but I wasn’t quite positive when St. Paddy’s Day actually was this year (was it Saturday, when the bars were promoting their St. Paddy’s specials- or Sunday with everyone running races wearing green shirts and finishing it off with a beer?!) But I soon found…

Another dreary winter month has come and gone and we are one step closer to Spring! But I don’t want to diss too hard on February as it definitely had it’s moments (birthday celebrations, snow days, a surprise engagement party, a belated Valentine’s Day with the MLB and of course tons of tasty culinary creations…
