The Perfect Ice-Cream Alternative

 July 9, 2014

On warm, starlit summer nights the tradition of post-dinner ice cream and a stroll through downtown seems to become a regular habit. But when this habit includes soft-serve vanilla ice cream and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, even the longest stroll won't burn off...

The Perfect Summer Salad

 June 25, 2014

I know exactly what you're thinking: "Avocado and tofu salad? Can Taylor be any more like a health nut?"

Make Room for Chili

 June 11, 2014

Chili and summer are two words that you typically don't hear together. However, with the fresh abundance of brightly colored and earthy-tasting produce hitting the local farmers' market stands and grocery store aisles, chili seems like the most genius one-pot...

Add Some Mediterranean Flavor to Your Lunch

 May 28, 2014

Warm sunlight is streaming through the windows and shining down on me, a cool iced green tea is by my side, and Jack Johnson is playing in the background. As I sit writing this column, I must admit I'm in heaven. With a cool, refreshing lunch waiting for me in...

Taking the 'Blah' out of Veggie Burgers

 May 15, 2014

Taking the Blah out of Veggie BurgersOne of my favorite go-to lunch options is the veggie burger. Most of you reading this are probably thinking, "Blah. Boring. Bland." But I'm here to prove all of the veggie...

Sauce in a Snap

 April 2, 2014

I bet if you open your pantry, somewhere on one of your shelves is a box of pasta and a jar of marinara sauce. This quick-fix dinner staple seems to find its place in most homes across America. And why not?Well, put down the...

The Traveler’s Savior

 March 19, 2014

I need to take a second to brag...I was lucky enough to spend this past weekend under the Florida sun! I know you're jealous. Warm sun kissing your body while waves splashed at your feet sounds like nirvana (and it was!) However, before you get too envious of my...

Healthier St. Patrick’s Day Fare

 March 5, 2014

St. Patrick's Day is quickly approaching. When I was younger, this cultural holiday always made me wish I was Irish, and back in my elementary school days I may have even fibbed about my family's heritage! Thank goodness for my patient parents who embraced this...

Turning Leftover Rice into a Tasty Treat

 February 19, 2014

I rarely order takeout, but working three, 12-hour shifts in a row in the middle of an ice storm seemed to warrant a break from my kitchen duty. I decided to rely on some fresh Cantonese-style takeout for dinner on the last night of my 36-hour stretch.

Pot Roast, Skinny Shoreline Chef-Style

 February 5, 2014

Over the past month this bone-chilling weather has earned many names: the Polar Vortex, the Deep Freeze, and, my personal favorite, the Arctic Assault. No matter how you choose to refer to what feels like a giant snowball attack on our country, the general...

The Lazy Girl’s Soup

 January 22, 2014

The laziness bug has struck my apartment. Maybe it's because I'm working a bit more and sleeping a lot less, or perhaps this chilly, damp weather has been to blame. Regardless of the cause, I've been spending less time in the kitchen and more time lounging in my...
