Everything but the Kitchen Sink Burrito


One of the few trying things about going on vacation for me is attempting to eat all of my refrigerator’s perishables while also not buying any groceries (rough life, I know). I’m headed out for a week long  hiking trip in a few days so I’ve been eating a lot of weird meals (read leftovers galore!). One of the easiest things to make while simultaneously getting rid of a bunch of stuff in the fridge is a burrito. I’m partial to the breakfast variety. Its not glamorous, but it sure is delicious! It’s one of the easier meals to make with whatever you might have lying around, so here’s what was in my fridge this morning…

Easy Bruschetta

I’m going to just come right out and say it. I’m obsessed with tomatoes right now. I want to eat them with every meal, and I’ve been doing a pretty good job of it. If you’re like me and you find yourself with an excess of tomatoes, bruschetta is a good way to use those delicious ‘maters!

This recipe is great for an afternoon snack, appetizer or full on meal if you really go for it. It’s super easy and super delicious.

Heirloom Cherry Tomato Sauce

I picked up some amazing goodies that included beautiful heirloom cherry tomatoes and fresh pasta. Naturally I spent the rest of my day thinking about  what I was going to make, and decided on a more traditional (and super easy) pasta sauce.

Royal Icing


In honor of our sorority’s convention in Palm Springs this weekend, The Lawful Kitchen has been whipping up some awesome Alpha Chi Omega themed goodies!

These sugar cookies decorated with royal icing are a lot easier to make than you would think. I whip them out for just about every event (birthdays, NCAA football games, Halloween, xmas), and they can be infinitely customized.

This is the best chicken I’ve ever eaten. Some may say that’s a bold statement, but I love this chicken so much I want to be buried with it in my mouth.

Not only is this dish incredibly delicious, but it’s also incredibly easy to make and it only takes 5 ingredients!

I like to serve this with a side of veggies cooked in the same mustard sauce. I prefer green beans or broccoli, but it works great with root vegetables (potatoes, carrots etc.) as well.
