Recipe: Blackened Tofu Slabs with Peach Salsa

Wandering aimlessly down the cookbook aisle at my local bookstore is how I’ve found some of my all time favorite recipes. About a week ago, I was doing just that.

Recipe: Buffalo Wing Salad

I woke up wanting to make buffalo wings, but I’ve been trying to eat  a little healthier lately, so I decided to put them in a salad. I went with kale as my base because it’s really versatile and goes well with pretty much everything.

Review: Field Roast Frankfurters

Last week, I was grocery shopping with my boyfriend and he suggested we pick up some of the Field Roast Frankfurters to try for the first time. They’re available at a ton of baseball stadiums now, so we figured we would try them out and see how they hold up to the classic Dodger Dogs […]
