Being a Food Blogger Gave Me the Attention Span of a Pea

A rather bold statement I’ll admit, but being a food blogger has completely turned my attention span to mush. Don’t get me wrong. I love blogging and all that encompasses it. The freedom and creativity that blogging allows me in my life is second to none. I’ve met wonderful people, I get to make my own schedule, I have worked with fabulous brands in the food industry and have even published my own cookbook; all of which wouldn’t have been possible without having my food blog. However, when I recently started to feel overwhelmed, I took an attention span test and got a 30 out of 100; which means that I basically have the attention span of a pea.

Better Than Takeout: Homemade Chicken Pad Thai

I love chicken pad Thai and have wanted to make it at home for a few years now. Sadly, when I've found a recipe for it, there are usually about 30 ingredients, most of which I can't pronounce. And I would get scared and chicken out. So when I found this easy recipe, I decided to go for it! I will be honest here and tell you that I really wasn't expecting anything great. ...more

Turn Leftover Easter Eggs Into a Delicious Egg Salad Pita Sandwich

Planning a Meatless Monday dish to make on the Monday after Easter is a no-brainer for some people, because there are all those Easter hard-boiled eggs that need to get turned into something resembling a meal. I'm a huge fan of hard-boiled eggs any time of year, and this Egg Salad in Pita with Green Olives, Green Onions, and Dijon is one of my favorite ways to use them. If you've never considered adding green olives to egg salad, I highly recommend it! ...more

Light Curry Egg Salad with Greek Yogurt

When Meatless Monday comes right after a holiday where many people have an abundance of hard-boiled eggs, doesn't it make sense to feature some kind of Meatless recipe idea using hard-boiled eggs? I thought so, and when I spotted this Light Curry Egg Salad with Greek Yogurt on Cookin' Canuck, it sounded perfect for the day after Easter. Dara lightens up the egg salad with Greek yogurt instead of mayo, spices it up with curry powder and serves it on whole-grain crackers for a healthy meatless lunch or light dinner idea. ...more
