Dill Pickle Deviled Eggs

Spring is here! Slowly but surely we will be getting some warmer days. In anticipation for the Easter holiday I thought it would be fun to share one of my favorite deviled egg recipes. Josh and I are huge deviled egg fans – I eat them for breakfast with toast or for a snack with

Date, Walnut & Pecan Banana Bread

Banana bread is one of those foods I remember making with my mom growing up. I feel like bananas are one thing in our house that always turn ripe so quickly so this was a perfect way to transform them. This bread is made with olive oil and Greek yogurt which provide great texture. The

Pumpkin Pie Pudding (gluten-free, dairy-free)

I absolutely love pumpkin pie, but I don’t enjoy how sugary it can be (one slice has around 25 grams of sugar). 100% pumpkin puree is such a wonderful ingredient to use in recipes because it’s chock-full of vitamins, antioxidants and fiber. This simple recipe combines pumpkin and coconut cream, plus a small amount of

Caramelized Onion Dip

Party season is here and that means lots of yummy snacks! Onion dip is a classic favorite, but making it from scratch is extra delicious.  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Frozen Yogurt Bark with Strawberries

Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits, but sometimes it can be hard to find good ones. We have now started to see some Florida strawberries at our grocery stores and I’ve been scooping them up because they are so sweet and juicy! I have a huge container of them in my fridge right now

Blueberry Walnut Smoothie

One of my goals this year is to add more color to my diet. This may seem like a really weird thing for a dietitian/chef to say, but sometimes nutrition goes out the door when things get busy. Simple recipes like this smoothie are a great way to pack a lot of nutrition into one

Date and Goat Cheese Ball

I’m a huge fan of goat cheese and pairing it with medjool dates provides the perfect sweet and salty combo. This cheese ball is the perfect make-ahead snack to share with a crowd. Pair this with some champagne and get the party started! 1. Place cream cheese, goat cheese and milk in a stand mixer

Quick Focaccia with Goat Cheese, Fig Jam and Prosciutto

The holidays are officially here this week! Having some simple and quick appetizer recipes on-hand is helpful when you have a hungry crowd arrive at your door. This focaccia is so delicious and is the perfect balance of sweet and salty. The focaccia recipe itself (without the toppings) would also be a nice addition to

Sunflower Seed Butter Energy Bites

Back-to-school season means meal prep is back in full swing and my clients want their fridges stocked with healthy meals and snacks. Packing school lunches can be tricky since you have to be wary of those with allergies. Thankfully these energy bites are nut-free so they are safe to pack for a lunch treat or

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
