This grilled chicken recipe with basil and lime (I used lemons from my tree) screams SUMMER! It is super delicious. This has become an instant favorite especially since I have several of the ingredients growing in my backyard: lemons, basil, and scallions. This chicken recipe is light, fresh and healthy, perfect for dining al fresco on a warm summer night.
I finally have a life again. I took my Masters of Public Health comprehensive exam last Friday. I couldn’t be happier to have finished. Well I’ll be happier when I found out I pass. Studying had taken over my life so I’m so happy to be able to breathe again. I have a whole plan for when I graduate in a month, including many home improvement projects, which I will be sure to blog about. One month and 2 bigs papers left. I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I can do it! Have a great weekend!

I’ve made this salad a few times and each time it’s been a hit. It’s absolutely delicious–filled with parsnips, carrots (I used heirloom), apples, bacon, beets and a whipped goat cheese. Simply, mouth-watering. I made this salad over the weekend for my cousin’s shower. It’s fairly easy to make, especially since most of the components can be made ahead of time. It makes a gorgeous presentation and made a stunning addition to the buffet table. The recipe is from The Little Paris Kitchen cookbook is by the adorable Rachel Khoo. I just love her cookbook and show on Cooking Channel. It reminds me of the days I studied abroad in Paris. Enjoy!
My mom and I threw a bridal shower for my cousin over the weekend. It was adorable and I’m super excited to share photos in a post this week. After the party, my house it a mess of decorations, which is probably why most these links revolve around cleaning. I’m ready for some spring cleaning! Happy spring everyone!
3. Andrew and I are coming up on our 2 years in July. Never too early to start planning: DIY versions of traditional anniversary gifts.
4. I’m love coconut oil for many things: cooking, lotion, chapstick… One jar of coconut oil equals 16 household staples across three rooms.
5. When spending a little more money traveling is a good idea. Who else is ready for a vacation?
My sister, Mia, had to create a movie for school that captures a setting. Mia chose the kitchen as the setting and asked if she could film me cooking. She captured how much time and care goes into a meal (and how little time goes into eating and enjoying the meal). Hope you enjoy!
