Blueberry-Pecan Chicken Salad

Here in west Michigan we love our blueberries. I love chicken salad in all forms, but this particular recipe has quickly become one of my favorites. The blueberries add beautiful color to this salad and I love all the different textures. Serve this on a bed of greens, on a croissant or with a side Blueberry-Pecan Chicken Salad

Ground Bison Hummus Bowls

I love hummus – it’s so hearty and adds a wonderful burst of lemony, garlicky flavor with each bite. Using it as the base of this dish is the perfect way for it to soak up the other flavors from the meat, tomatoes, olive oil and pine nuts. Overall, it’s absolutely delicious – a nice Ground Bison Hummus Bowls

Caramelized Pear and Gorgonzola Salad

Pears are one of my favorite fruits – juicy, sweet and slightly tart. Lightly caramelizing them in honey butter takes that delicious sweetness to the next level! Served over a bed of beautiful greens, the buttery pears, creamy gorgonzola cheese and toasty walnuts make this meal a winter delight. Serve this with crusty bread to Caramelized Pear and Gorgonzola Salad

Orange-Maple Walnut Crusted Salmon

Citrus season is in full swing and I love all the juicy oranges and grapefruits available at the store right now. The sweet orange and maple flavor of this walnut topping is the perfect compliment to the fatty salmon. This pairs nicely with salad greens tossed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil or wild rice.

Sesame Cashew Chicken and Peppers

This dish is a wonderful meal to prep ahead for lunch or dinner. It’s a perfect combo of protein and veggies and it reheats nicely. My sauce has way less sugar than a traditional sesame chicken sauce, without sacrificing any flavor. Serve this on it’s own or over rice, quinoa or lo mein noodles. 3.

Beet Poke Bowl

Beets have always been one of my favorite veggies – I love the earthy flavor! This dish is a fun way to enjoy your veggies – beets, avocado and cucumber are combined with a soy and rice vinegar sauce and topped with sesame seeds, lime zest and peanuts. Delicious over cold rice or salad greens! Beet Poke Bowl

Spinach Feta Rice

This bright, lemony white rice includes a hearty amount of fresh spinach with the addition of toasty pine nuts and salty feta. Though simple, this dish has such a wonderful depth of flavor! Serve this with chicken, salmon or, to keep it vegetarian, a large side of roasted vegetables. 2. Add rice, water and lemon Spinach Feta Rice

Roasted Pumpkin and Tomato Soup

Pumpkins and all types of squash are available at the market right now and I believe they are more than just a decoration. The combination of roasted tomato and pumpkin works so well together – both add their own unique sweetness which means I didn’t have to add any sugar to the soup.
