Chicken Enchiladas

{f you’re subscribed via email, I’m so sorry for those two weird email notifications regarding a “new post” last month. Something was wonky with WordPress and it was triggering emails. The internet is a mystery to me sometimes. I’m trying to make sure it doesn’t happen again!} Today, we are talking about enchiladas. It’s a delicious dish that might feel intimidating to make…until now. Sometimes I just need some comfort food, a little spice, and lots of cheese. If you feel the same way, this is your dish. This recipe will have you making homemade enchilada sauce (that the chicken cooks in!) using only a small list of flavor packed ingredients. If you’re not a fan of chicken, you can easily sub it out for roasted veggies, black beans, or another type of meat. Here we go! First, you saute some diced onions in a large pot. Then you add [Continue Reading...]

South America: Turning 25 Years Old in Cotopaxi and Quito, Ecuador

I got to hike the second highest volcano in the world on my 25th birthday with amazing friends–this day is going to be a hard one to top! Megan, Kristina, and I hopped in Paul’s car around 6am so we could get an early start to Cotopaxi, a national park just outside of Quito. Paul and Santiago, Kristina’s classmates, navigated the roads while the three of us tried to sleep a little more in the backseat. We had to get to the volcano early in the day because if you arrive too late, the fog covers up the entire thing and you miss the beautiful view. The five of us planned to leave even earlier than 6am but struggled to wake up on time. Hikers intending to climb to the summit usually spend the night at the base camp and start their trek at midnight or 1am in order to [Continue Reading...]

South America: Mitad del Mundo in Quito, Ecuador

I’m sure some of you have already noticed, but this blog has been pretty quiet due to an unexpected (but much needed) blogging hiatus. This is actually the longest I’ve ever gone in 2.5 years without posting, which is kind of startling but I’m absolutely ok with that. I didn’t mean to take a blogging break but something just told me I had to. As rewarding as this blog is, it takes a huge amount of time and effort. And sometimes, I really enjoy stepping away from the computer screen and it’s difficult to balance my time. But I find that I come back to this space every single time, and when I do, I’m glad I did. So here I am, refreshed and determined to finish my South America Recap (just one more post after this!), and I’m also looking forward to posting some fun recipes that I’ve had [Continue Reading...]

Biscoff Apple Crisp with Biscoff Caramel Sauce

I was recently given the opportunity to work with Biscoff and create a recipe with their ridiculously delicious Biscoff Cookie Spreads. Let’s just say that I’ve been eating this stuff non-stop, and I could eat 10 more jars. No questions asked. I love Biscoff cookies but have never really tried the spreads. I was missing out–this stuff is addicting! I’ve been spreading it on crackers, eating it with apples, and just straight out of the jar via giant spoons. Someone help me. I normally don’t even like to eat too much sweet stuff at one time but what’s not to love about cookies in the form of a spread?! Genius. And I could also make 10 more batches of this Biscoff apple crisp! But wait, it get’s better. Biscoff caramel sauce also happened. And it’s the most amazing caramel sauce ever!!! I hinted about it on Instagram but no one was able to guess that the secret [Continue Reading...]

South America: Huacachina, Peru

The little town of Huacachina is beyond amazing. We only spent one night there but every moment of it was so much fun! If you are around the Lima area, I highly suggest visiting this place. Disclaimer: This post if filled with way too many sunset photos. But I don’t care! There was only one minor travel issue (yay!) on the way down which consisted of Megan and I hanging out too long at the airport after we landed in Lima, losing track of time, and then barely making our bus to Ica! The Cruz del Sur bus station in Lima is about 3 times as big as the one in Cusco so we didn’t anticipate such long lines to get our tickets and check our bags. The ticketing system at the bus station is sort of like going to the DMV–you receive a number from a self-serve kiosk based [Continue Reading...]
