Aglio e Olio

Due to a certain YouTube channel, my boyfriend and I refer to this dish as Breakup Pasta. It’s a very simple and quick dish that is fresh, light yet filling, and perfect for a warm summer night.

Cinnamon Banana Muffins

I always buy too many bananas and can never eat them before they turn brown, so they end up in my freezer waiting for the day they can be used in this muffin recipe. It’s a classic recipe with a cinnamon and streusel twist, perfect for any morning or snack.

Avocado Lime Salad

Butter lettuce is so highly underappreciated, getting run over by romaine and spinach, but its leaves work so well with a salad of many ingredients. Adding as little or as much of each one will allow this salad to take on its own flavor, whether it be tangy or cool.

Greek Chicken Pasta

Full of classic Greek flavors, this recipe is perfect served as a warm meal or as a cool side dish at a picnic. The tomatoes and cucumbers bring a real freshness that is pleasant in both winter and summer.

Cacio e Pepe

Don’t be fooled by the short ingredient list, this pasta dish packs a lot of flavor into seven ingredients and about 20 minutes of cooking. Add a little extra pepper for more kick or more pasta water for a thinner sauce.

Sopa de Ajo

Since we already add garlic to everything, why not try a Spanish Garlic Soup. This soup was very filling and crisping the bread in the oven gave it firmness where it otherwise would have been soggy.

Sesame Noodles

The flavor these noodles had was amazing, and the runny yolk of a poached egg would have brought this whole dish to a different level. Now I just need to master poaching an egg.

Skillet Pizza

Every Valentine’s Day my boyfriend and I make Skillet Pizza, it started as an accident and continued as a tradition. It is a super simple recipe that is easily customized, because it’s pizza.

Chicken Noodle Soup

When taking a sick day, soup is the only thing I crave. This recipe is great if you have nothing to do but Netflix, nap, and watch a pot of water boil.
