Pineapple Cashew Fried Rice

Fried rice is one of my favorite pantry meals. It comes together so quickly and makes great leftovers for lunch throughout the week. I love the combo of crunchy cashews and sweet pineapple in this one! If you want to add more protein, feel free to add some diced extra-firm tofu or chicken. 1. Heat […]

Dijon Herb Roasted Potatoes

With Christmas right around the corner, it’s time to get your holiday menu in order. Potatoes are always a client favorite and these crispy mustard and herb potatoes are no exception. These go well with beef tenderloin, roasted whole chicken or pork tenderloin.  If you have vegetarian/vegan guests or those with a gluten allergy, this […]

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 […]

Ratatouille

Ratatouille is a classic end-of-summer dish because it’s a wonderful way to use up your garden veggies. It’s delicious on it’s own, but also pairs well with fish and pasta. It’s also makes great leftovers – simply cover the pan and reheat in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or scoop onto plates and […]

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 […]

Watermelon Mint Moscow Mule

Ahh summer – it’s so close! If there’s one thing I always look forward to, it’s sitting on our patio with friends with a crisp, cold drink in hand. I love mint, and it always seems to be one of the herbs that grows like crazy in our herb garden, so I’ll add it to […]

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 […]
