Food: Gnocchi with Homemade Parmesan Cream Sauce

Here’s a little something different for you on the blog this hump day. Food! Today we’re talking about Gnocchi!

Gnocchi is potato pasta and it’s amazing. I had Gnocchi for the first time at a restaurant a few years ago and fell in love.

Now I don’t hand make my Gnocchi but I do make my sauce from scratch and it’s pretty bomb if I do say so myself.

Parmesan Cream Sauce:

  1. Butter
  2. Minced garlic
  3. Milk or half and half
  4. Flour
  5. Parmesan (grated)

I don’t have specific measurements I kind of just go with the flow when I’m cooking! However if you would like the measurements so you can try this at home I will provide them!

This dish is quick, filling, easy, and can be quite fancy!


There is shrimp in the picture! You can do no meat or you can add chicken or shrimp, I’ve done both!

Live it. Love it. Style it.


Meal Prep: Chicken Stir Fry

For the past two months I have been meal prepping. It is a life saver! I do it every week for my lunch for work. It’s easy and nice not to have to worry about food each day. It is also great for trying to get in/stay in shape.

I have fun coming up with different meals each week.

What I do:

Every Sunday is meal prep day. I do meat and veggies at the very least. This past week was chicken stir fry.

I made the chicken stir fry with chicken tenderloins, broccoli, mushrooms, and peppers. I cooked rice and I eat fruit with every meal prep. Depending on my work week I do prep for three or four days.

I add fruit or apple sauce and I’m set for the week! I reach in the fridge each morning pull out lunch and hit the road. This is so easy and stress free plus it’s fun coming up with a new recipe every week!

Love it. Live it. Eat it.
