Sadly I will be taking a break (hopefully not too long) from cooking and @cookingwithniss while I struggle with some health issues. My hope is to not lose followers and that we'll be back up and running soon. Please keep me in your positive thoughts and prayers. Thank you! #cookingwithniss #tazo #chamomile #tea #mug

Starting on tonight's dinner- any guess on what I'm making? Hint: it's not tortillas. #cookingwithniss #dinner #maseca #masa #glutenfree

My monkey bread last night was a hit with my husband's family (you would have thought I had made the best thing ever...lol)! I used The Pioneer Woman's recipe and it was yummy. #cookingwithniss #christmascooking #Christmasdinner #monkeybread #thepioneerwoman

Happy LOVE Day, @cookingwithniss friends! #cookingwithniss #valentines

[5/10] How my dosas came out- told you I "attempted" to make. Haha! It's a refined art to make it and I definitely need to keep practicing. :-) #cookingwithniss #dosa #india #indiancuisine

[2/3] Look at that beautiful shredded chicken! #cookingwithniss #chicken #shreddedchicken #crockpot #soup

[1/7] Isn't it incredible how much spinach shrinks when sautéed/cooked? I've been cooking spinach for years, but it always amazes me. Sautéed this spinach with olive oil, garlic, and kosher salt for a turkey burger I made yesterday. I'll show you more in next posts. #cookingwithniss #turkey #turkeyburger #spinach #saute

Things just got a little more real-- bought my first digital kitchen multifunction food scale! I'm committed to this health thing, but am not super strict (even though this purchase might suggest otherwise...haha). Any of you have one? If so, how has it helped you on your health journey? #cookingwithniss #eatingwithniss #lunchtimeshopping #amazon #foodscale #healthywithNiss #healthyeating #healthjourney #healthyliving

*SWIPE for more pics* Happy Monday! I work from home on Mondays and love to catch up on "The Kitchen" on @foodnetwork -- they are so much fun! One of my favorite chefs is @chefmarcela and was so stoked/star struck when she replied to my comment the other day! Love you, Chef! Haha! #cookingwithniss #foodnetwork #thekitchen #ilovetocook #chefmarcelavalladolid #marcelavalladolid #teleworking #starstruck #tv #favoritetvshows #mondays

Grilling zucchini and summer squash for a pasta salad I'm making for a bbq tonight! :-) #cookingwithniss #bbq #summernights #summereats #summerveggies #pastasalad #zucchini #summersquash #grilling #grillingveggies #grilledvegetables

*SWIPE for more pics/vids* Made Puerto Rican sofrito today with my beautiful Mama (hence the 70s tunes; even though I love them too)! This "seasoning/sazon" is the staple of many of my dishes so I'm thrilled that I'm stocked up again. Happy that I get to cook with my heart. ❤ #cookingwithniss #sofrito #puertorico #puertorican #puertoricancuisine #cookingwithmama #mama #seasoning #sazon #cilantro #70smusic #ajidulce #culantro #cilantro #makingnewmemories

#latergram // Made pollo saltado for friends- new and old this past Saturday. Paired it with white rice, black beans, and green salad. My guests loved the meal- which brought happiness to my heart! :-) #pollosaltado #cookingwithniss #chicken #peruvianfood #peru #peruviancuisine #cookingforfriends

*SWIPE for more pics* [Latergram] On Monday night I made breakfast for dinner-- always a favorite in our house. On the menu was an egg sandwich (with sauteed mushrooms, spinach, and onions) topped with avocado and grape tomatoes; as well as a mini fruit salad on the side. The bread used for the sandwich was the 100 calorie multigrain skinnies. Yummy and quick/easy to make on a weeknight! #cookingwithniss #latergram #breakfast #dinner #breakfastfordinner #fruits #fruitsalad #tomatoes #avocado #egg #lowcalorie #weeknightdinner #easymeal

**SWIPE for another pic** Made [Asparagus Spring Salad] tonight! Ingredients: Israeli pearl couscous, oven roasted asparagus, kalamata olives, feta cheese, dried parsley, walnuts (didn't have pinenuts), kosher salt, and lemon zest. So fresh, filling, and delicious! Find the recipe on my Pinterest page (@cookingwithniss). #cookingwithniss #dinner #lowcalorie #salad #asparagus #fetacheese #greekinspired #walnuts #lemons #easymeal #weeknightdinner

**SWIPE for more pics** While you were sleeping early Saturday morning, I was cooking away in my cozy kitchen. :-) On the menu was turkey enchilada poblanos rellenos (only 223 calories; yep, also whipped up enchilada sauce in my kitchen), restaurant style Mexican rice, refried red beans, and Mexican elote (street corn). Unfortunately I was such in a hurry that these are the only photos I took. However, our guests can attest to the tastiness (thankfully)! :-) To find all the recipes go to [Lunch Menu for Sabbath, 6/10]. #cookingwithniss #mexicancuisine #turkey #poblanos #chilerelleno #lunch #latergram

[Latergram] **SWIPE for more pics** A couple weeks ago I made creamy polenta topped with oven roasted brussel sprouts and portobello mushrooms-- I loved it! Only 195 calories per serving. Btw, I know this is more like a winter recipe, but hey, eat what you want any time of the year! :-) #cookingwithniss #healthyeating #healthyliving #polenta

**SWIPE for more pics** Tonight's dinner was Mexican inspired quinoa. I oven roasted fresh corn on the cob, but it did not have enough of a char so I roasted it more on stovetop (with kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper). You'll see in the second pic that the corn is more charred. The ingredients in the final product are grape tomatoes, drained and rinsed black beans, dried cilantro (didn't have the fresh one), multi-colored quinoa, kosher salt, and chipotle powder. The hubby and I loved it and it was surprisingly filling for 358 calories (per serving). #cookingwithniss #healthyeating #healthyliving #quinoa #blackbeans #healthywithNiss #vegetarian #latergram #corn #caloriecounting #tomatoes🍅

[Latergram] A couple weeks ago I made garlicky spaghetti squash topped with parmesan cheese and parsley. It was so delicious that I forgot about pasta (even if for a moment- lol)! Only 407 calories per serving-- flavorful, healthy, and delicious! #cookingwithniss #healthyeating #healthyliving #spaghettisquash #pastaless

[Latergram] **Swipe to view more pics** A couple weeks ago I made quinoa broccoli slaw salad and topped it with Trader Joe's spicy peanut vinaigrette and sliced almonds. Only 210 calories per serving-- fresh, crunchy and delicious! #cookingwithniss #healthyeating #healthyliving #traderjoes #broccoli #slaw #broccolislaw #organic #quinoa #salad #healthywithNiss #vegetarian #caloriecounting

[Day 6 in Spain] **SWIPE for more pics** Snacking on popcorn (my fave snack) while watching the grandiose processionals from our apartment in Malaga. We were so blessed to have front row seats and witness Holy Week/Semana Santa in Spain! #eatingwithniss #cookingwithniss #culinarytravel #foodies #foodieparadise #travel #photojournaling #thebestisyettocome #spain #malaga #holyweek2017 #semanasanta2017 #snacks #latergram #popcorn #popcornaddict #processionals #takemeback #idratherbeinMalaga

[Day 6 in Spain] **SWIPE for more pics** Snacking on delicious marcona almonds in Malaga while strolling through the gorgeous streets. Check out the Holy Week/Semana Santa booklets on the stand- they are so serious about their festivities. I loved it! #eatingwithniss #cookingwithniss #culinarytravel #foodies #foodieparadise #travel #photojournaling #thebestisyettocome #spain #malaga #holyweek2017 #semanasanta2017 #snacks #latergram #almonds #marconaalmonds #takemeback #idratherbeinMalaga

[Day 6 in Spain] **SWIPE for more pics** We had one of the best rotisserie chickens we have ever had...in Malaga, Spain at @pollos_san_juan . It was also the most affordable meal we ate in Andalucia. The potatoes, sauces (including patata brava sauce), and tortilla Española were exquisite too! Wish we had this spot around the DC area! Please check them out if you are ever in Malaga!#eatingwithniss #cookingwithniss #culinarytravel #foodies #foodieparadise #travel #photojournaling #thebestisyettocome #spain #malaga #holyweek2017 #semanasanta2017 #lunch #latergram #tortillaespanola #chicken #rotisserie #rotisseriechicken #cheapeats #patatasbravas #potato #pollossanjuan #pollossanjuanmalaga

[Day 5 in Spain] **SWIPE for more pics** Having dinner at our favorite restaurant in Seville with the fam-- we went a little crazy with ordering goodies again (not everything is pictured). :-) We had cod fish croquettes, fresh cod fish eggplant stacks, roasted seasonal vegetables, Bartola chicken, and vegetable "sushi." Highly recommend this spot if you're ever in Seville- it's such a chill spot that they even give away free books! #eatingwithniss #cookingwithniss #culinarytravel #foodies #foodieparadise #travel #photojournaling #thebestisyettocome #spain #seville #holyweek2017 #semanasanta2017 #dinner #latergram #labartolasevilla #labartola #codfish #eggplant #veggies #croquettes #goodeats #freebooks #books #tapas

[Day 5 in Spain] **SWIPE for more pics** The market in Seville was nicer than the one we visited in Madrid; look at all the delectable items! I love markets; don't you? #eatingwithniss #cookingwithniss #culinarytravel #foodies #foodieparadise #travel #photojournaling #thebestisyettocome #spain #seville #holyweek2017 #semanasanta2017 #market #latergram #mercado #mercadobarranco

[Day 5 in Spain] **SWIPE for more pics** Brunching in Seville with the fam-- we went a little crazy with ordering goodies (not everything is pictured). :-) Check out the beautiful dishes, courtyard, and all of the details.
