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 […]

Caprese Salad Stacks with Oven-Fried Green Tomatoes

Summer entertaining season is upon us, and it’s time to wow your crowd! I love when I can start include caprese salad on my menus because it’s simple, fresh and so pretty. I decided to do a spin on the classic caprese by using fried green tomatoes instead of regular and topping the mozzarella with […]

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 […]

Asparagus and Cherry Tomato Galette

Asparagus season is almost upon us! I love it prepared all kinds of ways – steamed, roasted, grilled, pickled – but it also pairs nicely with pie dough. This galette is super simple, but looks fancy, making it a great addition to your next brunch or lunch. Pair this with a simple green salad or […]

Dill Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

I feel like fresh dill is sometimes overlooked at the grocery store, but it adds incredible flavor to marinades and sauces. I have made a variety of chicken salads and this one is definitely now one of my favorites! You can serve this chicken salad on bread or with crackers, but I like serving it […]

Chopped Romaine Salad with Pepperoncini Vinaigrette

Winter weather normally means lots of soups and stews, but sometimes I just crave a big, crisp salad. This salad has a wonderful blend of flavors and textures. I especially love the edamame and feta, which add the perfect blend of sweet and salty. If you are packing this salad for lunch, I suggest leaving […]

Sopa de Lima (Mexican Lime Soup)

Josh and I recently took a food tour in Cozumel, Mexico and it was so fun to try some real Mexican food. We tried cactus quesadillas, this soup, pulled pork (cooked in banana leaves), grouper ceviche and whole fried lion fish. This soup stood out because it was so full of flavor and unlike any […]

Brown Rice and Veggie Stir-Fry with Ginger Orange Sauce

I’ve been trying hard to up the veggie intake in our house lately (even the dogs are loving them – it’s so funny to watch them beg for carrots and sweet potatoes!). This stir-fry was something I developed as a lunch option since it’s super easy to separate into individual portions. And you can play […]

Greek Stuffed Peppers

With healthy meal prep season in full swing, these stuffed peppers are the perfect prep ahead meal. They are so incredibly full of flavor and provide a number of different textures as well, leaving you full and satisfied. These peppers are basically a whole meal since they provide protein, veggies and grains, but a side […]

Vegetable and Homemade Chicken Wonton Soup

By January, I feel like I’m constantly craving warmth. If I’m not working, I’m at home in my sweatpants, robe and slippers and hiding under warm blankets (time for a sunny vacation it seems…). In the mean time, warming foods like this yummy chicken soup are good for the soul. This recipe is a fun […]
