Cooking with Your Future Baby Mama: Gochujang Power Bowl

Happy New Year! It’s been a min but I am officially back with the jump off. And what’s a more perfect way to get things going than a healthy food post?!


I was doing my morning scroll of my Twitter feed and saw a post by Bon Apetit via Basically for a Gochujang and Sesame roasted Squash recipe and said “WELP that’s what’s for lunch today!” And I headed to the store and got to work. Continue reading

Happy Monday?

Well……Monday is def doing is typical thing and acting like a Monday. So here’s some things to make the day better and change the tone for the week if you need it like I do!

  1. Light Candles and Meditate. Meditation has become a staple in my life in keeping me focused and managing stress. I like to meditate before I go to bed to help set the tone for my sleep and the following day. However if you are having a day like mine you may want to go out to your car (if you’re at work) and take 5. I really like THIS 5 min guided meditation that helps align your chakras. I literally vibrate after I’m done  and feel ready to face the rest of the day. If I am at home, I really enjoy lighting candles generally but I also like to light them while I am meditating. I am really into these candles from Angelic Rose Essentials. Not only are they beautiful to look at they smell amazing even after blowing them out. The Postiano and ocean drive scents are sure to help with dealing with the “Mondays”.fullsizerender_33__62045-1485141747-500-659

Over the past year and a half I have been working on taking my health more seriously and getting my body in the best shape that it can be. During that time I’ve lost about 20lbs and a zillion inches. I try not to track that data too much because it can be stressful and discouraging. I don’t own a scale and only get weighed when I go get my B-12 shots (I’ll save that for another post.) Anyway with spring sliding through last week I thought this was a great time to give my body a restart and do a 3 day juice cleanse.

Adventure Time: Portland, OR

For the last couple of years the Fall season has turned into adventure time for me. Last year in August I made a resolution to go on a trip once a month until the end of the year to spend time with friends and family. I ended up accomplishing that goal and it was so rewarding  to see that through. This year I wanted to take a short trip alone to a city I have never been to and just explore it. Thanks to being on Virgin Americas email list I cheap trip to Portland, OR fell into my lap. I have always wanted to go and had a couple friends from there but really knew nothing about this beautiful city. I  heard and read a lot about Portland, especially as a life long foodie, this was one place that was mandatory to eat my way through and that’s exactly what I did. Continue reading

Cooking is Stylish: Easy and Impressive Sea Bass…

 2015/01/img_4910.jpg
I love to cook. If you follow my Instagram you can see that. Cooking is how I decompress, especially when I am trying out a new recipe.  So the spirit, guided me to waltz into Whole Foods because I wanted to make some Sea Bass for dinner. I have a love/hate relationship with Whole Foods (or Ho foods, there’s always a hot guy there, ALWAYS). I think that their meat and fish is so fresh, but I also feel like the grocery bill is equivalent of a pair of shoes (I rather starve).  I copped the Sea Bass and a couple of other things and was outta there.

Cooking is Stylish: This Thanksgiving…I Had The Answers…

IMG_4438.JPG
It has been a long time since I have done a food post. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram then you already understand my passion for good and pretty food. This love for food sometimes doesn’t support my love for fashion because I am not sample size (and working out is not my friend…sometimes) but I love to cook and eat. In my world having attractive food is just as important as it tasting good. My mother taught me this and my grandmother taught her so I have been this way forever. No matter what I cook, I plate my food like it is being served in a restaurant. Visuals are not only important in fashion, they are important for everything! Especially food.
Anyway, this year was my second stab at cooking my family’s Thanksgiving dinner. I must say, I am patting myself on the back and so is the rest of my family. IT WAS GOOD! And Pretty! Here are a couple of tips that I have learned about plating and cooking that I would love to share:
