Copycat Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowls

Everyone loves Chipotle. At least everyone in the Tri State Area does. If you google things to do in New Jersey, the first thing that comes up is the Jersey Shore-the Atlantic looks beautiful and blue until you step in in and get tangled in kelp-y sludge. There’s also an aquarium with hippos.

So I can see how double scoops of marinated meat and legitimately seasoned food is very exciting over here.

Brussel Sprout Pizza (and How to Make 100% Whole Wheat Pizza Crust)

If kids don’t like broccoli, they hate brussel sprouts with a burning passion. Most people say they hate brussel sprouts and haven’t even tried them. It’s just the way of life to hate brussel sprouts.

It’s never too early to start a life lesson.

Salmon Burgers with a Garlic Aioli

Luckily for me, I live a train ride away from New York City. So I frequently visit with my friends- our agenda almost every time we visit we visit an art museum (we need to visit all of the before we turn 17 and we have to pay), a park, ICE CREAM, and a restaurant that we’ve heard of on instagram or a travel blog. Recently we traveled to the Whitney Museum of Art, then visited the Highline, and then seeked out Chelsea Market to have lunch. In Chelsea Market there was a restaurant called The Lobster Place. I ordered a salmon burger and then watched businessmen and women eat whole lobsters while wearing suits and chuckled a little as a waited for my order. As soon as we got our food, we found a nice spot on the Highline and chowed down. Now there are two possible scenarios that could’ve happened:

(1)we could’ve been so hungry that anything tasted good at that moment (2)the food could’ve just been that good, or (3) a combination of 1 and 2.
