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

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

Italian Chopped Salad

These winter months can be brutal – especially when the snow just won’t seem to let up! A lot of the time I find food can take me to another place. This salad reminds me so much of summer with it’s sweet heirloom tomatoes and basil. Serve this with a side of soup and a

Chicken and Veggie Stew (Dairy-Free)

I often have several clients requesting meals that are gluten-free and dairy-free. Making meals and snacks that are gluten-free can be pretty simple these days since there are so many gluten-free products available, but making meals dairy-free is a little trickier (especially if you want them to taste good). Soaking raw cashews and blending them

Farro, Bacon and Roasted Mushroom Risotto

Farro is one of the ancient grains I truly adore. It has a chewy bite and slightly nutty flavor, making it a fun substitute for arborio rice, which you would typically use in a risotto recipe. The pairing of the farro with bacon, meaty mushrooms and salty Parmesan is so good – I would definitely

Chicken and Baked Tofu Fried Rice

With more dinners being prepared at home, this is a great time try to re-create some of your favorite take-out meals. This will not only save you money, but will also give you the opportunity to make those meals much healthier. I love bulking up my fried rice with lots of colorful veggies so that

Baked Spaghetti with Roasted Tomatoes

Cold weather always has me craving warm casseroles like this baked pasta. This dish is super family-friendly and a fun one for kids to help prepare. It reheats really well too, making it a great meal prep item to enjoy throughout the week. Serve this with a big leafy green salad or roasted broccoli and
