Mushroom Series: Mini Mushroom Pizzas

Mushroom Series: Mini Mushroom Pizzas

For the next part of our Kitchen Pride mushrooms series, I made an appetizer because I wanted to make more than just main courses. When I made this recipe, I had been craving pizza, plus I got a good deal on the turkey sausage and […]

Whole 30 Day 25

Whole 30 Day 25

Today was a fun day because my university’s graduate student council hosted a 2012 Euro Soccer party for the final match between Italy and Spain. I’ve been a fan of Italy for a really long time, so of course I wanted to go. Therefore my […]

Whole 30 Day 1

Whole 30 Day 1

I had been toying with the idea of doing Whole 30, which is a 30 day period of omitting foods that can negatively impact your health and fitness. I have been doing Paleo/Primal for almost a year now (July 1 is my Paleoversary!), and even […]

Paleo Zucchini Bolognese

I crawled out of the vineyard for one day just to spend some time writing and entering my data. I’m going to have to schedule days like these regularly because they are highly productive, and because there are a lot of graduate students around the […]

Spaghetti with Olives and Artichokes

As you can probably tell, I am still quite busy. Finals week is coming up and not only do I have exams to take but I am giving my first exam as well. My Thanksgiving break was not only occupied by exam writing, but also […]

Mediterranean Salad

Mediterranean Salad

It saddens me that we are halfway through July (nearly), and I have only made one post on here. I have been away doing field work for most of last week, away from the Internet, so posting was impossible. At least I got a good […]

Multi-Colored Pasta Salad

Multi-Colored Pasta Salad

For the camping trip this past weekend, I brought a pasta salad along with the brownies. When I went to the store to get ingredients for the salad, I didn’t have a clear idea of what was going to be in the salad. I basically […]

Southwestern Red Quinoa and Tofu

Southwestern Red Quinoa and Tofu

My room mate let me borrow her camera so that I could hammer out a recipe for this blog, and I am so thankful! I’m really back to be in the game posting here. I did order a camera yesterday. It’s a light pink Canon […]
