Curried Chickpea Salad Sandwich

I’m generally good about eating dinner leftovers for lunches at work but lately we haven’t been making big meals for dinner. We’ve been keeping it light with smoothies or salads. Frankly, these don’t make good leftovers. So, I’ve been needing to come up with easy dishes to make on the fly for my lunches. Since… Continue reading Curried Chickpea Salad Sandwich

Boozy Truffles

Let’s talk Valentine’s Day. Whether you love it or hate it, this holiday is great for making and eating sweet treats! It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone but food is definitely my favorite way to celebrate a holiday. My typical go-to is cake or cookies but I wanted to change it up this… Continue reading Boozy Truffles

Wild Rice Bowl With Tahini Sauce

Meatless Monday has developed into a meatless few months for me. To be honest, I’m still deciding if this will be a permanent change or not but I am enjoying the challenge of cooking differently. It would be all too easy to just dive into lots of pasta or cheese but I don’t think my… Continue reading Wild Rice Bowl With Tahini Sauce

Blueberry and Pesto Quinoa Bowl

Alright, it's confession time. I absolutely ate my way through the holidays. I mean, I went all out with sweets and wine and homemade Chex mix (because we all know the homemade stuff is at least a million times better than the stuff that comes in a bag). No treat went uneaten. I’m not even… Continue reading Blueberry and Pesto Quinoa Bowl

Lemon Iced Ginger Cookies

I used to think sugar cookies were the ultimate iced Christmas cookie. They are certainly a classic but let’s be honest, they are really just sugar on sugar no matter how beautifully they are decorated. Why not add some flavor to the sweetness? Over the last few years I have developed a love for ginger… Continue reading Lemon Iced Ginger Cookies

Pumpkin Pecan Pie

Admittedly, I am a relatively recent pumpkin convert. It is only in the last few years that I have been able to enjoy a slice of pumpkin pie or pumpkin bread. I still can’t handle pumpkin spice flavored beverages though.  Pecan pie, on the other hand, was my absolute favorite when I was growing up.… Continue reading Pumpkin Pecan Pie

Roasted Vegetables with Lemon Dressing

Easy, healthy and delicious. That is what I love about roasted vegetables but let’s get real here, I’m over the boring potatoes or broccoli. I still need easy but I also need variety both for my palette and my sanity. Why not experiment with a variety of vegetables? I really don’t think you can go… Continue reading Roasted Vegetables with Lemon Dressing

Strawberry Pastry

God bless the person who decided pastries were an ideal breakfast food! Can I get an “AMEN”??? That sweet, carb loaded goodness might not actually be part of a healthy, balanced diet but it certainly does give me motivation to actually eat breakfast. My eyes don’t exactly light up the same way when presented with… Continue reading Strawberry Pastry

Fruit Bruschetta

I love hitting up my local farmer’s market for seasonal produce and I love hosting friends at my house for tasty eats. The best is when these two loves come together with an easy recipe that is dressed to impress. When hitting up the farmer’s market, I often browse for what looks enticing and create… Continue reading Fruit Bruschetta

Lemon Roasted Broccoli

When I was pregnant I couldn’t get enough broccoli. I would eat it any way I could get it – raw, steamed, roasted, mixed into another dish. Of course, the rest of my cravings weren’t quite as healthy so I tried to embrace this one as much as often as possible. As I was reaching… Continue reading Lemon Roasted Broccoli
