Inspring Recipes to Get Cooking Good Looking!

Some days, I LOVE to cook. But most days all I want is to do is order Seamless, relax, and pretend I live in a world where I never have to cook again.

I spent all of last weekend working with an event planner at a man's home which is currently on the market for $22 million. Um, wait WHAT?! He has butlers, maids, and probably has never HAD to make a single meal in his life if he didn't want to. Unfortunately, most of us cannot afford to live in that luxury I so often dream about.

In order to get myself to eat better and cook more, I thought why not find some inspiring recipes that are easy to make, rich in nutrients, and that will be fun to put together! So I'm challenging you (myself included) to cook one fun and healthy recipe a week until winter ends and see how it goes.

Without further ado, here's a few things at the top of my list to make this winter.

Butternut Squash and Sage Risotto with Goat Cheese

This yummy risotto uses one of my favorite winter squashes and the best cheese. The dish is also vegetarian and gluten free, so it can be eaten by almost anyone! (Click on the photo for a link to this yummy dinner.)

Roasted Beetroot, Walnut, & Goat Cheese Salad

Can you tell I like goat cheese yet? Truthfully, I've already made this quite a few times. But to get myself to buy all the ingredients is still a challenge! Want to make it even better? Caramelize the walnuts. SUGAR IS EVERYTHING.

Orecchiette with Baked Chicken Meatballs in Tomato Cream Sauce

This is a little extra tastier than the classic pasta with tomato sauce. Using all fresh ingredients, I can't wait to make this! Besides... you can never really go wrong with pasta of any kind.

And thats it! Hope these recipes inspire you to GET COOKING!

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
