Cheayaaaa I’m currently at a position that requires me to sit for a long period of time. [Says 80% of people in the world] 😂 . I’ve gotten questions on what are good stretches for people who have a desk job. . My favorite one is the camel pose! 🐪 Aka ustasana 🧘♀️ . Try it out ! See how you feel! Happy Friday lovelies!
@sndtrak makes pretty good lentils. So I got inspired and did something with this yummy legume 🎉 . Peep this curried lentil and spinach stew 🖖🏽 . Coming from a long day I used @traderjoes pre cooked lentils and organic spinach you can get at their produce section! Just had to add my own spices! . #copakitchen
Growing up I longed to know you. It was occasional visits back to the PI that I would see you. Phone conversations and pictures kept us connected. . It wasn’t till I was entering my teens to realize how much of an example your are to me. An inspiration. I prime example of a person who followed her dreams and knew how to make lemons out of lemonade. 🍋 🍋 . Posting this because it’s mama’s day but I give you praise everyday! Best believe that 💯 LOVE YOU QUEEN! Thanks for always treating me like an independent princess 👸🏽 ❤️🥰
Ever heard of a Lebanese salad called fattoush? . I don’t think I’ve ever had it until now. 🥗 My lovely friend stopped by today and made me one of her favorite dishes that her mom used to make her. With romaine lettuce, mint, radish, cucumbers, toasted pita chips, and simple light lemon/garlic vinaigrette you can’t go wrong ! . Sometime the simplest dishes can be absolutely electrifying to your taste bubs !
As much as I love sweet corn bread I decided to play on the savory side. . After a couple trial runs, I ended up with these cheesy chipotle and roasted bell pepper corn bread. . I found that @bobsredmill corn meal works the best! Produce always from @traderjoes and you can’t ever go wrong with using @daiyafoods for cheese alternatives! 🥰🌽🌶 . . #copakitchen
Probably one of my favorite collaborations so far. 🤗 . To shed some light on collaborations is that I haven’t enjoyed all of them. However, it’s always a good learning lesson. Just want to give a soft reminder to pick and chose who your work with. And if you don’t vibe with em’ simply let me know. Your time and talent is precious. 😇💯 . CD: @chibzz . 📸 : @j.castae

My 1st go at the financier. 🤗 . My twist ? . I added a mix of citrus and fresh blackberries 🍊🍋🌱 . Financiers are petite almond cakes that are moist and slightly crisp on the outside. I had some fun mixing different dairy replacements to this recipe. I found that aquafaba (chick pea water) and oat milk were the best options. Still going to play around with the almond meal and flour ratio but pretty content with the turn out. . #copakitchen
