Cottage Cheese Banana Pancakes

Mornings are better with pancakes! I love having some ready in the fridge for a quick and delicious breakfast. These pancakes are full of protein thanks to the cottage cheese and eggs, so you can feel full and satisfied until lunchtime. The banana adds just the right amount of sweetness and also provides a good

Sweet Potato and Carrot Breakfast Hash with Chimichurri

Having breakfast ready to go in the morning is a real game changer. I often make these types of dishes for my clients because they reheat well and are a good combination of carbs, protein and fat to keep them full throughout the morning. I used pork breakfast sausage in this recipe, but you can

Mushroom Lover’s Beef Stroganoff

I have fond memories of eating beef stroganoff growing up, but it often wasn’t made from scratch. This recipe is super simple, requires one pan and tastes like it’s been stewing all day long. Unlike my husband, I have always been more of a “meat on the side” type, meaning that I love having more

Olive Oil Poached Halibut with Cherry Tomatoes & Olives

Typically I get two different types of clients – ones that love fish or ones that say it’s too fishy. For those “too fishy” people, I always challenge them to try halibut. It’s incredibly mild and has a wonderful meaty texture. Like most fish, it pairs really nicely with citrus. Poaching it in olive oil

Dill Pickle Deviled Eggs

Spring is here! Slowly but surely we will be getting some warmer days. In anticipation for the Easter holiday I thought it would be fun to share one of my favorite deviled egg recipes. Josh and I are huge deviled egg fans – I eat them for breakfast with toast or for a snack with

Lentil Bolognese Sauce

Getting clients to enjoy vegetables in fun and new ways has been a passion of mine for quite some time now. This sauce is one of my favorites to enjoy throughout the week because it reheats nicely and the flavors really meld if you make it a day or two ahead of time. It’s chock-full

Orange Chicken Meatballs

These chicken meatballs are the perfect meal prep item to enjoy throughout the week. They are made with almond flour, making them naturally gluten-free. The orange sauce (made with fresh orange zest and juice) is the perfect balance of sweet and salty (and slightly spicy). Serve this with cauliflower rice, brown rice or quinoa. Preheat

Spaghetti Squash with Bacon and Goat Cheese

I’m always trying make low carb dishes that actually taste great and still provide some good nutritional value. Spaghetti squash is a wonderful ingredient to use for adding flavor, fiber and the texture of “noodles”. I love serving it with pesto or meat sauce, but today I tried it with bacon, balsamic and lots of

Roasted Cauliflower Steaks with Arugula Salad

Lately I have had a lot more requests for plant-based meals which I’m happy to accommodate. When I first started working as a chef I was developing recipes for a vegan/vegetarian meal prep company so I’m used to getting creative with veggies. These cauliflower steaks are hearty and filling and simply beautiful. I seasoned mine

Date, Walnut & Pecan Banana Bread

Banana bread is one of those foods I remember making with my mom growing up. I feel like bananas are one thing in our house that always turn ripe so quickly so this was a perfect way to transform them. This bread is made with olive oil and Greek yogurt which provide great texture. The
