Save Yourself Sometime To Go Smoothies

A few weeks ago I posted some pictures on Instagram of to go smoothies I whipped up and a lot of people have been asking me about them so I thought why not write a blog post? I haven’t written a cooking related post in a while so this was a great excuse to get back to it. I have had a lot of early days lately so I thought about experimenting with frozen homemade smoothies. I got some [...]

The Buzzing Melbourne Restaurant Scene

The wonderful city of Melbourne is a melting pot of nations, cultures and culinary diversity. Once you get there you will easily become enchanted with its mysterious laneways paved with narrow cobblestone and vivid atmosphere created by street jazz performance. Buskers are not the only special thing about this city. Its restaurant scene will leave everyone speechless. Even for a Sydney girl [...]

Cream of Corn + Pea Soup, Yum!

I have to say that this was a pretty successful first attempt at making soup completely from scratch. In my normal fashion I didn’t follow a recipe, just experimented and came up with a great new easy, fast recipe. As with all of my other recipes I say use the ingredients to your preferred taste, for example I only like a little bit of salt but you might like a lot (but don’t over do [...]

Reader Q+A with Little Sprouts Kitchen

Hello, I’m Kimberly from Little Sprouts Kitchen! I live in sunny, San Diego, California. I moved to the west coast almost six years ago from West Virginia (Go Mountaineers!).

Loaded White Chicken Chili

I came across this recipe about a week ago on Pinterest and it looked delicious! I immediately started thinking about ingredients I could add to make it my own. Only a portion of these ingredients were in the original recipe. If you have read my cooking posts in the past you know I don’t normally measure anything out and just go with taste, however I did end up having specific measurements for [...]

So Simple Turkey Meatballs

(Originally posted December 14, 2014) Recently I decided to start eating ground turkey instead of ground beef because it’s much healthier. Even though when I first tasted ground turkey I didn’t care for it, I’ve discovered that over the past few years I must have developed a taste for it because now I think it’s delicious! The other day I saw a picture of spaghetti and meatballs and ever [...]

Totally Random Veggie Combination

(Originally posted November 2, 2014) Halloween night I was trying to figure out what kind of vegetables to make for dinner, I found myself with a random assortment of choices. I decided to go for the following ingredients: Onion Radish Cabbage Olive Oil It’s not really a combination of vegetables you would normally think to put together but I found it to be super simple and yummy! All you have [...]

Experiment: Cauliflower Pizza Crust

(Originally posted August 23, 2014) Outcome first time around Over the past few weeks I have been experimenting with making Cauliflower Pizza Crust (low carb). It definitely takes some experimenting to get it right. The first time around I forgot to put the egg in and the crust fell apart (it was still good enough to eat as a snack). My friend and I came out with two semi-successful crusts that [...]

Garlic Roasted Chicken + Potatoes + Veggies

(Originally posted June 24, 2014) Tonight I thawed out some chicken thigh quarters and was looking through the fridge at what I had. I came up with a new chicken + veggie/potato  + marinade combination that I really liked and wanted to share with all of you. It would probably be a good idea to cook the vegetables and potatoes in a separate dish than the chicken, I found that the oil getting [...]
