Ever since my eczema came back with a vengeance, I've been reading about ways to heal in a holistic approach.
I knew off the bat a constant stream of steroid cream wasn't going to do. After seeing my current dermatologist and being prescribed, flaxseed oil, fish oil, reishi mushrooms, nettle, and probiotics, I did some digging.
As I'm sitting in the AC post sun-bathing in Charleston, I'm truly craving these meatballs after my mom made a killer pecan pesto. Though I'd make these tonight for dinner, my arms, back, and abs are so sore from the boxing class cookie monster and I did yesterday.Read More

Ok, confession, I'm totally on the soul-cycle train- or bike I should say.
I always loved going to fitness classes (even though I hate what they do to my wallet), but spin has been the current obsession due to cookie-monster, who should better be re-named, protein-bite-only-rice-cakes-please monster's liking to the class.Read More

It's finally starting to warm up in NYC and there's nothing more than enjoying a good cocktail and some popcorn in the sun.
Before having people over, I always like to make a nice big batch cocktail and this easy margarita sunrise is super easy to put together with only a few ingredients.Read More
These are definitely on repeat in my meal prep rotation.
I used to hate making meatballs or burgers, but once I found my groove, I loved how versatile they can be- whether with flavors or how your serve them.Read More
Whenever I go out for Middle Easter/Mediterranean food I always crave this carrot salad. While each place makes it different, theres some thing about carrots with tang and spice that I cannot get enough of.Read More
It's finally starting to feel like spring in New York- maybe?
When its warm out and sunny long after work gets out, instead of having a warm and cozy dinner, a fresh margarita and some guac always sounds right. I mean who doesn't love a margarita with guac?Read More
