UB Style: The Foodie

Is the kitchen where your heart is? From décor to dinner, the Foodie has an undeniable taste for the natural and the rustic. You select design just like your dishware: creativity is always on the table, and every detail is perfect to a tea.

Turn your Kitchen and Dining space into your personal sanctuary by selecting furniture with a natural wood finish. Neutral tones provide a clean backdrop for your creations and allow you to experiment with your style choices in cooking and dinnerware.

Fresh ideas for summer décor include bohemian patterns, rope textures, crisp white accents and ceramics. Finish off your look with spa-inspired accents: add faux green foliage or a white pillar candle in a rustic lantern.

…And finally, here is a recipe for fresh summery burrito bowls to celebrate the season!

– 1 lbs chicken cutlets marinaded for a least an hour in a little lime juice, olive oil and salt and cooked in the skillet

– Corn, fresh or canned toasted in the skillet with smoked sea salt.

– 1 can black beans, warmed with cumin and chili powder

– 1 cup pumpkin seeds toasted in the oven with smoked sea salt and olive oil

–  3 cups cooked rice

– Fresh lettuce, chopped

– Avocado dip, we blended 3 avocados with 4 gloves of garlic, 1/4 cup greek yogurt and juice of two limes

– For garnishing – greek yogurt, corn chips, cilantro, red onion, tomato slices, and a variety of hot sauces and salsa.

To serve: Set all of the ingredients out along with a stack of bowls and let people mix and create as they desire!
