The next few months are going to be go, go, go for me. I’ve got a bachelorette party that I planned for a friend, her wedding and two separate groups of friends visiting. It’s a lot, but I’m super excited. That said, when I’ve got a lot going on, breakfast tends to get pushed to the back burner.
Ramen is one of the first foods I remember making on my own. My mom would let me pick from the many overly processed flavors at the supermarket. I’d go home, heat up a pot of water on the stove and place my brick of noodles inside. Once dissolved, I’d add that packet of flavoring (ahem, msg) and pat myself on the back for “making” my own meal.

As we inch closer to the weekend, we’re craving everyone’s favorite trendy meal…avo toast. There’s a reason why it’s so popular, and LL food contributor Jessica Lee is spilling the details on her ultimate avocado toast recipe, plus why it’s about to be your new favorite (easy-to-make-at-home-meal), too…
Austin weather has been all over the place lately. A few days ago I was walking to work, and it was lovely on the way in.

Needless to say, cold weather always leaves me craving soup. The beauty of this Curry Cauliflower Soup is that you probably already have most of the ingredients on hand. I almost always pick up cauliflower at the store because I love the nutty taste that comes out when you roast it. Pair that with the zip of curry and turmeric, and you’ve got a really delicious, warming soup. Enjoy!
It’s January, and though most of us won’t admit it, statistically-speaking it’s likely that we’re taking a long, hard look at our diets right now. The holidays bring delicious goodies and not a whole lot of leafy greens. Hey, that’s cool! It’s all about that magic word — balance. Let’s weigh out the bad with some good by way of a hearty kale salad with roasted delicata squash. It’s hella healthy and still tastes delicious. Seriously.
