Let’s Do Lunch: Chopped Salad

Let’s Do Lunch: Chopped Salad

I am a burger girl through and through. I love burgers and could probably eat one every day if I could. However, sometimes I love a good salad. Crisp vegetables topped with all sorts of delicious things. When I was little, I looooved getting side […]

Let’s Do Lunch: Caprese Toasts

Let’s Do Lunch: Caprese Toasts

Hey guys, it’s me. I’m alive, I promise. I know things have been quiet around here and I know I’ve mentioned it before, but apparently I needed even more time to just… be. You know? The past two months have been rough – June especially. […]

Let’s Do Lunch: Black Bean & Chicken Quesadillas

Let’s Do Lunch: Black Bean & Chicken Quesadillas

I have a confession to make. I haven’t really done much cooking the past month. I don’t know how I’ve been managing to eat (I think most of my meals end up being family meal at the restaurant) and I haven’t really been eating out. […]

Let’s do Lunch: Easy Falafel Pita Sandwiches

Let’s do Lunch: Easy Falafel Pita Sandwiches

Today’s post is brought to you by laziness. Unlike my usual fare, this stuff isn’t homemade because honestly? Sometimes I don’t have time to cook or just don’t want to. When that usually happens, I like to have some easy ideas in mind when grocery […]

Let’s Do Lunch: Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps

Let’s Do Lunch: Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps

I have a confession. I baked something this morning and didn’t take pictures of it. It was so wonderful. It is something I will make again and photograph and post about, but for my first run through, I just wanted to make something simple in […]

Let’s do Lunch: Mediterranean Pasta Salad

Let’s do Lunch: Mediterranean Pasta Salad

When I got back form Sweden, it was 100 degrees outside and I had no energy to cook or bake anything that required the oven. So when I was trying to plan out what to eat for the week, I decided to try making a […]

Mexican Dip

Mexican Dip

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I’m skipping my “Let’s Do Lunch” series this week because it’s Cinco de Mayo and this dip just HAD to happen. I guess you could eat this for lunch, right? I don’t have any plans to celebrate in Sweden, but I […]

Let’s Do Lunch: Smoked Salmon Toasts

So in honor of my departure today for Sweden (AHHHHH), I thought I would bring a simple and easy lunch to you. Like so easy I’m embarrassed to be writing this down as a recipe. But you know, it’s what I ate for lunch this […]

Let’s Do Lunch: Loaded “Baked” Potato Pita Pizza

Let’s Do Lunch: Loaded “Baked” Potato Pita Pizza

Sometimes you just wants carbs, carbs, and more carbs for lunch. Oh and maybe some bacon. And cheese. And you know what? Go for it. There’s nothing wrong with that. Maybe not every day for the rest of your life (I wish) but for a […]

Let’s Do Lunch: Veggie Quinoa Sliders

Let’s Do Lunch: Veggie Quinoa Sliders

I made adorable little crispy veggie quinoa sliders. It’s a fact that everything is cuter when in miniature. Babies? Way cuter than most adults. Plus even their tantrums could be considered cute. Once you grow up it’s just pathetic. Puppies and kittens? Generally cuter than […]

Let’s Do Lunch: Spinach and Artichoke Grilled Cheese

Let’s Do Lunch: Spinach and Artichoke Grilled Cheese

Spinach and Artichoke is one delicious combination. It’s most notorious in dip form, but I’ve put it on pizza, I’ve put it in pasta, and now I’ve put it inside a grilled cheese sandwich. And let me tell you, it was a wonderful decision. If I’m […]

Let’s Do Lunch: Smashed Chickpea & Avocado Toast

Let’s Do Lunch: Smashed Chickpea & Avocado Toast

This sandwich came to me in a dream. Okay, not really. It came to me by staring into my pantry before going grocery shopping and noticing this can of chickpeas that had been sitting there for a few weeks. The wheels started turning and I […]
