A little BTS of my trip to Lyon on @airfrance for the Bocuse d’Or 🥹 Big merci to Air France for inviting me to meet their new lineup of star chefs who will be bringing their talents to flights and lounges all over the world 🥲 #literallyadream #airfrance

Scenes from a weekend in Lyon 💘

French onion soup season is the best season 🫶 #cozyrecipe #comfortfood #souprecipe #cookinginspo

My secret ingredient for creamy, protein-rich, gut-friendly overnight oats: @ronnybrookfarm drinkable yogurt (which comes in numerous delicious flavors so you can mix up your breakfast game). These overnight oats are perfect for a quick and easy make-head breakfast or on-the-go lunch for busy workdays and beyond! #ronnybrookdairy #ronnybrook #ad Blueberry muffin overnight oats: * ½ cup rolled oats * ½ cup Ronnybrook Farm Blackberry Drinkable Yogurt * 1 tablespoon nut butter * 1 tablespoon honey * 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon * 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract * 1 tablespoon chia seeds * Pinch of sea salt * Fresh blueberries
 Chocolate peanut butter overnight oats: * 1/2 cup rolled oats * 1/2 cup Ronnybrook Farm Chocolate Creamline Milk * 1 tablespoon nut butter * 1 tablespoon maple syrup * 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract * 1 tablespoon chia seeds * Pinch of sea salt Combine all ingredients in a mason jar and stir well to combine. Refrigerate overnight and enjoy!

Long, cold winter nights call for classic cozy comfort dishes. Luckily my @madein cookware (which is extremely high quality at an accessible price tag) makes cooking all of my go-to recipes a joy. Get my simple one-pot pot roast recipe below and visit the link in my bio and enter code ‘GILLIE’ for 10% off all of @madein’s amazing products 😌 #MadeInPartner Dutch oven pot roast recipe: - 1 2-3 pound boneless beef chuck roast - Salt and pepper - 2 tablespoons olive oil - 2 medium onions, sliced thin - 5 garlic cloves, sliced thin - Red pepper flakes (optional) - 1 cup red wine (or substitute equal amount of beef broth) - 2 tablespoons tomato paste - 2-3 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce - 2 cups beef broth - 5-6 sprigs of fresh thyme and rosemary - 1 pound baby potatoes - 1 pound baby carrots - Fresh parsley, for garnish 1. Pat the beef chuck roast all over with a paper towel. Season both sides of the check roast with a generous amount of salt and pepper and set it aside to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes. 2. Preheat the oven to 300°F. In a Dutch oven or large heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. 3. When the oil is shimmering, add the chuck roast to the pot and sear for about 5 minutes per side (including the sides of the roast), until the surface of the roast is deep golden brown. Remove the meat from the pot and set aside. 4. Reduce the heat to medium heat and add the onions to the pot with the fat from the roast, using a wooden spoon to scrape up the browned bits from the base of the pot. Stirring occasionally, cook the onions until they are slightly caramelized, 4-5 minutes. 5. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes the the pot and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. 6. Add the red wine to the pot to deglaze. Stir in the tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, and beef broth and stir to combine. Add the sprigs of rosemary and thyme and stir gently to incorporate. 7. Nestle the seared roast into the broth mixture, cover the pot, and transfer to the oven to braise for 1 hour 30 minutes. (Continued in comments)
