Global Eats: Azerbaijan and Armenia

This is my first installment of my global eats project, and I am headed to Eastern Europe to visit the cuisines of two former Soviet nations: Azerbaijan and Armenia.  It may be slightly odd that I paired these two nations together given their tense relations and multiple conflicts over territory disputes.  However, geographically and cuisine-wise,…

White Chicken Chili with Salsa Verde

Since Christmas, I have had a hard time following my new meal plan.  Between parties and abnormal schedules, my eating has been a bit off.  I have especially had a hard time giving up wheat.  It is an incredibly hard to make a change like that, especially while being surrounded by so many tempting foods. …

New Year’s Eve 2018

Egg White Breakfast Casserole

I have never been that great at eating breakfast.  I typically do actually have breakfast (except for most weekends when I wake up just before lunch).  I just don’t make very good choices when it comes to breakfast.  I would swing between extremes of eating too little or eating too much.  I would often eat…
