Herbed Ricotta and Sausage Lasagna Cups

Lasagna is one of my absolute favorite comfort foods but it can also be a process to prepare with all the layering and long baking/resting time. These mini lasagnas are ready in under 30 minutes and are so fun to make (not to mention super yummy). Serve this with roasted vegetables or a big garden […]

Broccoli Pizza Crust

I feel like I’ve been eating a lot of pizza lately (as I’m sure many of you can relate to). Today I decided to lighten things up a bit by using broccoli as the base. Sounds weird, but it’s actually quite tasty and a fun way to get your kids (or husband) to eat their […]

Tortilla Chip Crusted Tilapia with Sriracha Lime Mayo

Like many of you I’ve been using this time to clean everything, including my pantry. It’s been great to see what I have on-hand and figure out different ways to use it. I found a bag of tortilla chips that was mostly crushed and figured those chips would make a perfect coating for the tilapia […]

Chickpea Pasta Primavera

Even though the weather is still a little chilly out, I have already started to think about spring and all the delicious produce that comes with it. This pasta has a rainbow of veggies and just a touch of cream, lemon and cheese to create a yummy sauce. I used chickpea pasta for even more […]

Sirloin Steak and Cabbage Stir-Fry

Lately cabbage has been one of my favorite veggies because it’s low carb and high fiber. I enjoy adding it to soups, roasting it with olive oil and spices or sautéing it in dishes like this stir-fry.If you don’t want to use beef, you can easily swap out the protein with diced chicken breast or […]

Perfect Lemon Chicken

A few days ago, my friend gave me some Meyer lemons from California and that beautiful fresh citrus just brightened my day! Winter is rough, and I feel we need to remember some of the awesome things about winter – like seasonal citrus. While regular lemons are available year round, Meyer lemons are much more […]

Mushroom Spaghetti with Goat Cheese

I’ve always been a mushroom lover. This pasta is pretty much equal parts mushrooms and pasta because I really wanted to highlight their meaty mushroom flavor. The creamy goat cheese that’s added at the end boosts that flavor even more. Serve this with a side of roasted vegetables or with a lightly dressed green salad. […]

Lamb Meatballs with Za’atar Spiced Yogurt

I’m always trying to come up with new and exciting appetizers for my dinner parties and cooking classes and lately I’ve been getting lots of requests for Mediterranean-type meals. Lamb is not a protein choice that I often put on my menus, but I really enjoy lamb meatballs because you are able to add lots […]

Brown Butter Scallops with Thyme and Pink Peppercorns

Love is in the air (or maybe that’s just the brown butter I’m smelling…). Valentine’s day can be stressful when trying to plan the perfect meal, but it doesn’t have to be. I am always up for staying in and cooking rather than trying to make a reservation at a fancy restaurant.These scallops are SO […]

Frozen Yogurt Bark with Strawberries

Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits, but sometimes it can be hard to find good ones. We have now started to see some Florida strawberries at our grocery stores and I’ve been scooping them up because they are so sweet and juicy! I have a huge container of them in my fridge right now […]
