Raspberry Kiwi Tart with Raw Nut Crust and Lemon Curd

When summer finally gets here and the temperatures rise, the last place you want to be is a hot kitchen. This dessert comes together so quickly and it tastes amazing. You can always skip the lemon curd and simply use whipped cream or coconut cream (if you want to this to be vegan). If you aren’t […]

Italian Chimichurri Marinated Mushrooms

Mushrooms – with my job I’ve noticed people either love them or hate them. I, however, have always been a huge fan. I like how they are so meaty and soak up any sauce you put on them. This salad is nice for summer gatherings because it is served at room temperature and gets better […]

Dill Pickle Grilled Chicken Wings with Spicy Ranch Dip

It’s officially grill season! I’ve been waiting so long to get outside and make dinner on the grill. I especially love grilled chicken wings because they get super crispy and smoky. The dill pickle brine on these wings gives them an incredible salty flavor and helps to keep them juicy. The ranch dip is the […]

Italian Sheet Pan Nachos

If there is one meal I will never refuse, it’s nachos. And while standard nachos are amazing, I decided to switch up the flavor profile and instead top my chips with some Italian yumminess. The sweet Italian sausage and crispy pepperoni pair perfectly with the salty cheese and chips. The romaine on top adds a […]

Chicken, Mushroom and Snap Pea Stir-Fry

Busy work weeks can mean lots of eating out or digging through the fridge and pantry to find something quick to eat. I’m a huge fan of putting together meals that are super simple such as this stir-fry. The key to making a meal this easy taste amazing is quality ingredients. I started with organic […]

Charred Lemon Hummus with Sumac

Hummus is often found on my menus. Whether I prepare it for a snack or as an appetizer for a dinner party, it’s always a delicious, comforting dish to share. I also love that it can be made so many ways – I often garnish it with toasted nuts, pesto or pomegranate seeds. This hummus […]

Berry Avocado Smoothie Bowls

Smoothies are a great way to pack lots of nutrition into one meal. This smoothie recipe in particular is full of fiber and healthy fats (but also tastes insanely good). I love serving smoothies in a bowl because garnishing with nuts, seeds, coconut and fruit is so fun – this would be the perfect cooking […]

Citrus Butter Sea Bass in Parchment

If you’re a citrus fan like me, then you will love this dish. I pumped up the flavor of the butter with a ton of citrus zest and the fish just marinates in that delicious as it cooks in the parchment paper. This recipe is super simple yet elegant, making it a great option for […]

Roasted Carrots with Pistachio Pesto

Easter is right around the corner and I’ve been in full-on planning mode trying to figure out what to make my clients as well as my own family. This carrot recipe is definitely on the menu now! I recently bought these mini rainbow carrots at a local farmstand and there really is no comparison when […]

Chicken Feta Burgers with Radish and Cucumber Tzatziki

These chicken burgers have so much flavor! Ground chicken by itself can be a bit bland, so I added lots of yummy spices and feta to jazz it up. Radishes aren’t typically added to tzatziki sauce,  but I really like the color, crunch and slightly spiciness they provide. I suggest serving these burgers with lettuce […]
