Dinner

Butternut Squash Curry

I love curries – especially ones that are chock-full of veggies. This dish is perfect to make at the beginning of the week and enjoy for lunch because it will keep you full until dinner time. And it’s a great meal to make for any of your vegan friends or those with food allergies since […]

Smoky Beef and Bean Chili

These picture-perfect fall days are my favorite. The sun is shining, there’s a cool breeze and we can start to curl up on the couch with a bowl of warm soup or stew. Chili is one of the best make-ahead meals, because it’s great for lunch or dinner and it honestly tastes better the longer […]

Sweet Potato Ricotta Gnocchi with Brown Butter

Fall is here and that means it’s time to for some warm, cozy dishes like gnocchi. This gnocchi recipe is one of my favorites because the sweet potato adds beautiful color and a slightly sweet flavor that pairs perfectly with the salty brown butter sauce. Serve this with a leafy green salad and a glass of […]

Roasted Broccoli and Chickpea Tacos with Smashed Avocado and Chipotle Crema

Tacos are one of my favorite go-to dinners (I’m sure most of you would agree). But a meatless taco? That might sound strange, but just trust me with these. The roasted broccoli and chickpeas add great flavor and bulk to each taco, leaving you full and satisfied.These are great on their own, but to round […]

Ratatouille

Ratatouille is a classic end-of-summer dish because it’s a wonderful way to use up your garden veggies. It’s delicious on it’s own, but also pairs well with fish and pasta. It’s also makes great leftovers – simply cover the pan and reheat in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or scoop onto plates and […]

Italian Sausage, Kale and Tortellini Soup

Once I feel a chill in the air, I immediately crave soups. They are so comforting in the fall and winter months and I love that there are so many different kinds to enjoy. They are an easy way to get your veggies too! This soup in particular packs huge flavor from the sausage and […]

Summer Veggie and Chicken Enchiladas with Avocado Salsa

Enchiladas are one of my favorite comfort foods. There are so many different flavor combinations you can go with, but since we are in peak summer produce season, I decided to fill them chock-full with delicious summer veggies. I added shredded rotisserie chicken for a protein boost, but if you want to keep these vegetarian, […]

Baked Salmon with Crunchy Pecan Crust

Salmon is a favorite in our household because it’s not only delicious and healthy, but it cooks super quickly so dinner is on the table in no time. It can be prepared in numerous ways, but this one is definitely one of the best (especially if you have people who don’t typically like salmon). I like […]

Buffalo Cauliflower Rice Bowls

Veggie-based meals are some of my favorite because they are filling and full of health benefits. This buffalo cauliflower bowl is so delicious (especially if you enjoy spicy food like I do) and I love all the different flavors and textures. If you prefer to keep this vegan, simple leave off the dressing. 1. Preheat […]

Meatballs with Blueberry BBQ Sauce

Blueberry season is almost here and it’s one of my favorite things about living in Holland. The fresh blueberries are so sweet and delicious and I always make sure to buy them in bulk and keep them in the freezer to enjoy throughout the year. Adding them to barbecue sauce provides a pop of sweetness […]
