Rockin’ Roasted Root Veggies

Rockin’ Roasted Root Veggies

Dearest fall enthusiast,  Fall is in the air–and I’m not just talking about the outdoor air. If you’re anything like me, you probably spend the majority of this season trying to figure out how to get fall in all of the airs. The car air, the bathroom air, the […]

Refreshing Tomato & Cucumber Salad

Refreshing Tomato & Cucumber Salad

Dearest summer veggie lovers,  As our summer season quickly draws to a close, I thought to myself, “What better way to celebrate than to create a lil’ salad to share with two of my favorite in-season foods?” (and also use the *what seems like* 5,000 […]

Dearest Balls of Energy,  You see what I did there? I’m addressing this post to not only YOU (you lil’ ball of energy), but also the little balls of energy of which this post is about…so meta, don’t ya think? Anywho, it’s Wednesday (aka RECIPE […]

Pineapple, Black Bean & Corn Salsa

Pineapple, Black Bean & Corn Salsa

Dearest Salsa sapiens,  You know, like Homo sapiens–but ones who really love salsa. It’s like how your parents always used to tell you if you kept eating too much of one food, you might actually become it? Well, that may actually be the case when it comes […]

Lemon Rosemary Ricotta Hummus

Lemon Rosemary Ricotta Hummus

Dearest Dippin’ Darlings, I have many long-standing inside jokes with myself (a skill one must learn to cultivate growing up as an only child). One of my favorites, however, involves carrots, cucumbers, pita bread, and pretzels. What do all of these foods have in common? Thanks […]
