New recipe post - yay!!!!!  I feel like it's been forever since I posted a new recipe.  With how busy life has been it's been hard to find time to get creative in the kitchen :-(.  Although, today is Prime Day!  Which is pretty much the greatest day ever and I just purchased myself a Continue Reading

Sesame Coleslaw, (healthy)Vittles&Bits

Oh. My. Goodness. It has been a CRAZY busy week for me.  I'm so glad I prepped a whole bunch of veggies last Sunday because I haven't had any time after work to cook this week!  In addition to all the veggies and hard boiled eggs I made, I also made this Sesame Coleslaw because Continue Reading

The colors would make this a great Christmas-time dish, no?

I created this salad yesterday, as a means to have a nice break from studying for the start of my clinical rotation (Monday - ahhhh!!!!).  I just wanted to do something with chickpeas, but other than that didn't have a clue what I was going to make.
