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 […]

Grilled Tequila Lime Shrimp Skewers with Coconut Cauliflower Rice

Our grill has gotten a lot of use lately since we both have been super busy and want dinner on the table fast (and we are taking advantage of the fact that grilling is still an option!). With that said, I still don’t want to sacrifice flavor or nutrition with our quick meals. This meal […]

Broiled Feta and Tomatoes

Sweet summertime! Isn’t August the best month here in Michigan? The farmers market is bursting with delicious produce, including a wide variety of tomatoes. Josh and I have been receiving a farm share each week and I always can’t wait to see what we get. Tomatoes are a great one to have a lot of […]

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, […]

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 […]

Sweet Potato, Asparagus and Spinach Crustless Quiche

I’m always trying to figure out some make-ahead breakfasts for us to enjoy throughout the week that incorporate veggies. Frittatas and quiches are the perfect option. This crustless quiche is fluffy like a typical quiche, without all the carbs and extra fat from the crust. I like to serve this topped with hot sauce or […]

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 […]
