 I'm Lauren! Most days you can find me testing recipes in the kitchen or working on my couch in leggings, covered in a cozy blanket. I grew up watching my mom cook, but it was not until I attended the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, that I found my love and passion for cooking and baking. Now, I develop recipes for fitness apps all across the United States and Canada!

These air fryer jalapeño poppers are a healthier alternative to a deep fried popper. I love dishes with jalapeños in them (see my popular Stuffed Bacon Cheddar Jalapeño Chicken Breasts).

The berries give it a beautiful patriotic color. You […]

They are bite sized, which makes them great for people who are always on-the-go! If you wanted to make them super healthy, […]

This orange chicken stir fry is the perfect weeknight dinner! It is all prepared in one skillet, so there is minimal cleanup. The sauce has hints of orange and the sesame oil gives the chicken a little bit of a kick! I love stir frying different meats and vegetables, and this orange chicken stir fry […]

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE pasta salad! It is the perfect spring or summer side-dish! However, it can be really challenging to find one that tastes just right. Ya know? For years I have tried to make the one on the back of pasta boxes taste good, but something was always off. […]

I absolutely love spring! There is just something about seeing all of the fresh blooms, the longer days, and the holidays! Spring holidays are so underrated, in my opinion. Holidays in my house = lots of good food! I love a good Easter lunch, Mother’s Day brunch, and Memorial Day picnic! This carrot cake with […]

I will be the first to admit it… This combination is a little weird! But, it works so well! I love the versatility of this skillet pizza casserole. You can add any veggie or pizza topping to it! I kept mine plain – just using cheese and pepperoni. But, the options are endless! You could […]
