I believe brussels sprouts deserve more love. They are sort of every kid’s holiday food nightmare. I’d look at them (sulk) and then look away, literally. There’s so many ways to eat them, dress them, and enhance this unassuming vegetable that has endured such a bad rep for so long. They’re kind of like that…… Continue reading Brussels Sprouts with homemade Lemony Tahini
OK. So I totally went M.I.A. for the last 10 days on a self-imposed recipe hiatus. Life has been crazy with a capital “C”. I kid you not. Had lots of work coming through, Ethan’s birthday party, Halloween, a case of laryngitis, & his actual birthday hits tomorrow. But tomorrow it’s just about being present.…… Continue reading Gluten Free Caprese Pasta Salad
Breakfast, lunch or dinner! Paleo Sweet Potato Toasties that are loaded with mashed avocado, protein-packed hard-boiled eggs, chili powder, sumac & sesame seeds. You will love! Whole 30 approved, too.
You know how there’s certain foods you just kinda (totally) ignore? Well, that was exactly the case with me and sweet potatoes/yams. I knew about this potato variety, but aside from my aunt Rosy’s epic Thanksgiving and Christmas sweet potato, cinnamon and marshmallow casserole; I seldom paid much attention to this unassuming vegetable. And the worst part…… Continue reading Southwest Sweet Potato Salad
I guess I could’ve simply called this blog something to do with avocado & that would’ve been a fair representation of my love/love relationship with this creamy green fruit and its abundant inclusion in my diet. It’s like my “daily bread”. And half the time I eat it over bread, so yep- that sounds a bit…… Continue reading Summery Avocado Toast
This is not your average potato salad. Once you give this incredibly simple recipe a try, you won’t ever return to the store-bought variety. That, my friends, is a promise. If you enjoy boiled potato salad, wait till you try roasted potato salad! This simple move from [boil to roast] makes for some serious, next-level…… Continue reading Roasted Purple Potato Salad
Traditional spaghetti was a primary staple in my university diet. At least a once-a-week meal that we would eat, reheat and eat over the course of two days. Not very exciting to say the least; but hearty and affordable. During my 4th and final year of undergrad school, I moved into a brand new residence that…… Continue reading Buckwheat Soba Spaghetti!
I was casually asked at a dinner party just last Friday what my blog is all about. It’s questions like those that make you step back and try to fill in the gaps with inside knowledge but outside perspective. I concluded that it’s the story of a life, told through food. I share recipes and…… Continue reading Buckwheat Tabbouleh
Mexican take-out meets healthy deconstructed taco bowl. Except there’s no rice. I’ll do you better, it’s got protein rich quinoa which like rice; is also naturally gluten free. And it’s highly addictive kind-of-GOOD. Sans meat or with it; it’s totally customizable to your preferences. I enjoy this sans meat simply because the quinoa and black…… Continue reading Mexican Quinoa Casserole
