Butter Chicken

It took me moving to Seattle to experience real Indian food. I had previously only been exposed to the restaurant chain frozen-then-reheated junk, but the authentic family-owned Indian restaurants are abundant in these woods. I love it! After experiencing the absolute joy that is Butter Chicken for the first time three years ago, it became a…

Spring Greens & Citrus Salad

I tried this salad reluctantly at one of my favorite restaurants, Duke’s Chowderhouse, and was unsure how I would feel about the unique combination of toppings.

Apple “Cookies”

Sweets will be my doom. I am so good all day: yogurt for breakfast, salad for lunch, baked chicken dish for dinner…and then those late night sugar cravings come calling, and all my hard work is ruined. I have a difficult time avoiding sweets. That is why being gluten intolerant is actually a bit nice…

Shrimp and Asparagus Stir Fry

I have been trying to eat less chicken and more seafood so I have more variety in my diet. Luckily, I am obsessed with Pinterest, and I found dozens of recipes that I can’t wait to try. So far, my favorite has been this Shrimp and Asparagus Stir Fry. It was quite filling for being…
