Butternut Squash and Black Bean Tacos

Hi everyone!! I hope you had a nice week! I’m in the end of semester push right now (a.k.a. high anxiety and high stress only made worse by being around other law students!!). I’m hoping to continue posting through the end of the semester and exam period, but no promises. If things go radio silent, you’ll know why and hopefully I’ll be back around Christmas!

But anyway let’s think about other things like food!!

White Chicken Chili

Hi everyone!!! I hope you all had a lovely week. I don’t know how the weather is where you are, but it has gotten chilly here in DC!!!! The chilly weather reminded of a recipe I made last year to share with you all. Unfortunately, I made it right when my 1L life got crazy and I never got around to posting it! So, I have it to share with you today!!

Green Smoothie

Hi everyone and happy Friday!

I have been feeling a little under-the-weather this week and I wasn’t planning to post today. However, after a green-pick-me-up smoothie I am feeling slightly better and I decided to share my secret weapon! I’m not sure if it is just the constant rain that has me down or if it is related to the flu shot I had earlier this week, but I’m hoping that this smoothie keeps me going through the rest of the afternoon!

Onion Baked Chicken

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! I don’t know about you all, but this week has seemed to last forever! Luckily, I was able to whip out a new and easy dinner recipe midweek to spice things up.  It’s super easy and really flavorful. The calorie count is pretty awesome too!

I don’t know about you all, but every once in awhile I get super tired of the same old chicken breasts. I sometimes use dry onion soup mix on potatoes and pot roast and I thought why not add it to bland old chicken? The result? Awesome!!!

The Best Black Beans Ever

Hi everyone!! I hope you all have had a nice week! For those of you who are curious about how my argument on Monday went, Sarah and I successfully argued for the defense and won!!! High five!!!

So I know “The Best Black Beans Ever” is quite a cocky title, but seriously – this recipe makes THE BEST BLACK BEANS EVER!!! I have always loved black beans, in fact when I was younger I got made fun of for ordering black bean soup as an entrée at a Mexican restaurant. What can I say? They’re awesome!

I originally saw this recipe in my new favorite cookbook, It’s All Good, but I made a few changes. Mostly, I just reduced the amount of oil to bring down the overall fat content! Believe me, you don’t need a ton of fat to make these beans awesome – the trick is to cook them over low heat for at least fifteen minutes to get a deeper flavor.

Green Chile Fish Tacos

Happy Friday everyone!! So.. something has happened… I finally gave into Goop. I’ve been reading about our friend Gwyneth’s diet for some time and I finally tried one of her recipes.

Even though I made my own alterations, the result was fan-freaking-tastic.
