  • Simple Baked Kale Chips

    My goals are strong this new year but I know the munchies are going to pester me for a few more days. I just want to snack on something crunchy and salty that is not processed. These ever so simple, crisped up greens fit the bill. I started by roughly chopping two decent size bunches [...]

Pictured above is our Christmas Day dinner: Tuscan White Bean & Swiss Chard soup, decadent truffle macaroni and cheese, maple pecan Brussels sprouts, and a kale pomegranate garden salad. Over the last month, I have been trying really hard to focus on [...]

  • Orange Berry Vanilla Green Smoothie

    Here's a super duper quick post. Whenever I make a smoothie that turns out exceptionally yummy, I have to share it with you. Normally I just toss this and that in trying to incorporate greens, 1-2 fruits, protein, and fiber. The below combination turned out perfect for a morning smoothie with its bright citrus influence. [...]

  • Festive Savory Holiday Tart Featured on FOX & You Have To Laugh At Yourself

    This has been a fun and fulfilling food week! Yesterday, I had to plan, shop for, and make a holiday themed dish for Fox's Good Day Charlotte show as well the event I mention towards the end of this post. They have a segment called "What's Your Dish?" and it requires bringing in all of [...]

  • Thanksgiving Edition: Cranberry Pecan Maple Scalloped Sweet Potatoes & Parsnips

    All of the traditional Thanksgiving colors are reflected in this unique twist on sweet potato casserole. I know some families are also pretty split on a sweet versus savory version. The creamy scalloped version, smoky paprika, and salt please the latter and the maple syrup and cranberries provide just enough sweetness for the former. The [...]

The cauliflower absorbs the herbs, olive oil, and spices well making every bite delicious. Although it is baked for over an hour at high heat, it [...]

  • Holiday Edition: Broccoli Leek Pie (Gluten & Dairy Free!)

    Give me any vegetable baked into a pie and I'm there!  With the few ingredients most pie crusts call for, I know that they are pretty simple when it comes down to it but this one is even easier. No rolling on the counter while meticulously making sure that your butter stays cold and and your [...]

  • Dessert Or Breakfast ANY Fruit(s) Crisp

    Listen to this - never again will you have to cut butter into flour and all that mess to make a fruit crisp. This one is made of dreams because it is time saving, calorie saving, sugar saving, dairy free, and gluten free AND still tastes like a traditional version. This is my hands down [...]

  • Spaghetti Squash Peperonata & Pearled Couscous Vegetable Pilaf

    We all enjoyed both dishes but initially I made the spaghetti squash for the adults and the couscous for the kids. Although the recipes are very simple, they turned out unique and delicious. We ate up the rest of the stew too and it complemented both! First, I want to talk about spaghetti squash. Spaghetti squash can [...]
