Shaved Asparagus Salad

As I sit here eating a whole pound of asparagus (haha) I’m reminded of what beautiful produce we are provided in west Michigan in the warmer months. The asparagus with thicker stems may not be everyone’s favorite, but in this salad they work perfectly for peeling. Serve this with grilled salmon or chicken and a side […]

Mushroom Enchiladas with Pepita Green Sauce

With meat being a little harder to come by these days, I’ve started to include more plant-based meals into our weekly routine. Mushrooms have a meaty texture and add great flavor to this dish. And the creamy green sauce will be your new favorite!If you aren’t a huge fan of mushrooms, you can substitute white […]

Greek Sheet Pan Chicken and Veggies

Trying to maintain a healthy eating pattern during this time can be difficult, but I keep reminding myself to stock up on fresh veggies while I’m at the store. I very much look forward to being able to go to the farmers market soon (hopefully) to help out our local farmers.This sheet pan dinner couldn’t […]

Shrimp Diablo

A few months ago, Josh and I tried shrimp diablo at a local restaurant and have been dreaming about it ever since. The flavors were so fresh and inviting, without being overly spicy. What I love about this meal is that it comes together so quickly and it’s versatile. Feel free to serve the shrimp […]

Broccoli Pizza Crust

I feel like I’ve been eating a lot of pizza lately (as I’m sure many of you can relate to). Today I decided to lighten things up a bit by using broccoli as the base. Sounds weird, but it’s actually quite tasty and a fun way to get your kids (or husband) to eat their […]

Tortilla Chip Crusted Tilapia with Sriracha Lime Mayo

Like many of you I’ve been using this time to clean everything, including my pantry. It’s been great to see what I have on-hand and figure out different ways to use it. I found a bag of tortilla chips that was mostly crushed and figured those chips would make a perfect coating for the tilapia […]

Chickpea Pasta Primavera

Even though the weather is still a little chilly out, I have already started to think about spring and all the delicious produce that comes with it. This pasta has a rainbow of veggies and just a touch of cream, lemon and cheese to create a yummy sauce. I used chickpea pasta for even more […]

Sirloin Steak and Cabbage Stir-Fry

Lately cabbage has been one of my favorite veggies because it’s low carb and high fiber. I enjoy adding it to soups, roasting it with olive oil and spices or sautéing it in dishes like this stir-fry.If you don’t want to use beef, you can easily swap out the protein with diced chicken breast or […]

Perfect Lemon Chicken

A few days ago, my friend gave me some Meyer lemons from California and that beautiful fresh citrus just brightened my day! Winter is rough, and I feel we need to remember some of the awesome things about winter – like seasonal citrus. While regular lemons are available year round, Meyer lemons are much more […]

Lamb Meatballs with Za’atar Spiced Yogurt

I’m always trying to come up with new and exciting appetizers for my dinner parties and cooking classes and lately I’ve been getting lots of requests for Mediterranean-type meals. Lamb is not a protein choice that I often put on my menus, but I really enjoy lamb meatballs because you are able to add lots […]
