Pan-seared Peaches & Steel-cut Oats

Second only to eggs, oatmeal is my favorite breakfast food. More specifically, steel-cut oats. A little crunchy, a little creamy and entirely reminiscent of my childhood. My mom used to make me oatmeal or cream of wheat for breakfast during the colder months of the school year and it was awesome. Unfortunately, due to my body’s love/hate relationship with gluten, cream of wheat is out of the picture. But, I still reach for oatmeal whenever the temperature drops below 50 degrees. Here’s one of my favorites.

When it comes to chips, cookies or fried foods, I really don’t have much trouble passing them up. But, one unhealthy treat that I have a borderline unhealthy relationship with is ice cream. No matter the weather or time of day, I can always go for a scoop (or two) of ice cream, which is why this recipe is an absolute staple for me.

Chickpeas are versatile, delicious and inexpensive. In addition to making hummus, a new favorite snack of mine is roasted chickpeas. Sweet or savory, you can flavor them either way. In this case, they’re savory with a little kick.

poblano turkey burgers + black bean & corn salad

It was a fantastic coincidence that it was Arizona’s restaurant week during our visit. As a result, we ate tons of different food in Scottsdale – so much of it was amazing (if you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know this). But, it’s no coincidence that since my return to the east coast, I’ve been craving southwest food in a big way. So last night I recreated some of the flavors I was already missing with roasted poblano turkey burgers and a black bean and corn salad.

Homemade Deodorant {six ingredients}

The idea of  aluminum based compounds and parabens seeping into my skin got me to switch to Tom’s of Maine deodorant a couple of years ago. Now, the idea of rubbing petro-chemicals (found in Tom’s of Maine) into my skin has started to bother me. So, after finding a recipe for homemade deodorant on Apartment Therapy last week, I decided to give it a try.
