Taco Pizza

This recipe is actually a childhood favorite of Rachel’s. She was telling me about this awesome Taco Pizza her mom used to make all the time. So I decided to bring it back to life for her.

Turkey Meatball Caprese Pasta

I’m always on the lookout for a simple and delicious pasta recipe. Mostly because I feel like it’s one of those meals that you can easily throw a bunch of ingredients together—without taking too much time—and it’ll still taste great.

French Onion Soup Grilled Cheese

I have a weird confession to make. I really love soup in the summertime. The hotter it gets outside the more I want soup. Is that crazy? Probably. I know that not everyone has my love of hot soup on a hot day, so I decided to take one of my favorite soups and turn… Read more »

About The Chic

Back in 2004 when I was looking to name my events company, I stumbled across the word 'Chic' in an old dictionary. The definition was: “a fashionable lifestyle, ideology, or pursuit”. I fell in love with the word and the idea that chic is the pursuit of something better, prettier, or cooler than you are today. Chic isn’t a state of being or even a destination, chic is the journey you take on the way to something greater. ~Rachel
