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 […]

Pumpkin Protein Smoothie

Pumpkin Protein Smoothie

Dearest Fall Fanatics,  Dropping by your screen today to wish you a happy FOURTH day of Fall. I hope you’re having the most splendid time so far and are effectively managing your “Fall Freakout” (…you know, when you get SO excited about the season change […]

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 […]

Peanut Butter + Oat No-Bake Energy Bites

Peanut Butter + Oat No-Bake Energy Bites

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 […]

Peaches N’ Cream Overnight Oats

Peaches N’ Cream Overnight Oats

Dearest Peachy Peeps,  It’s no secret that the morning is usually one of the busiest times in our day (…you want me to do HOW much before 8 a.m. and show up as a fully-functioning human being?!). Yeah, I get it….we’ve all been there.  However, do you […]

Summer Veggie & Basil Pasta Salad

Summer Veggie & Basil Pasta Salad

Dearest Pasta People,  I haven’t forgotten about you–it’s just that, sometimes, a steaming bowl of pasta doesn’t sound like the most bomb.com idea in the heat of the summer. As any true pasta lover knows, though, pasta can be enjoyed at any temperature (kind of […]

Simple Watermelon & Feta Salad

Simple Watermelon & Feta Salad

Dearest Watermelon Wizards,  Or at least, those aspiring to be watermelon wizards. How cool of a superpower would it be if you could just make a watermelon appear out of thin air? I have to think that would be fun…but also potentially dangerous for innocent […]

Summertime Hydration: Fruit-Infused Refreshers

Summertime Hydration: Fruit-Infused Refreshers

My dearly beverage beloved,  If I were to ask you to list the best parts of your past, present and future summer days, I’d venture to guess that you wouldn’t make it too far down the list without dreaming up “a cool & refreshing beverage.” […]

Rainbow Chard & Sunflower Seed Pesto

Rainbow Chard & Sunflower Seed Pesto

Dearest pasta peeps,  Boy oh boy do I have something for YOU. It’s a little nutty, a lot green, and definitely not good just on pasta. In fact, it’s suitable for just about all of your dippin’ and spreadin’ pleasures–potatoes, sandwiches, crackers, roasted veggies, fingers…you get the point. […]

A Berry Gut-Happy Smoothie

A Berry Gut-Happy Smoothie

Dearest Smoothie Sippers,  Do you ever wake up and think “Man, today would be a whole lot better if I got in two servings of fruits and veggies before 8 am…”?? If so, this smoothie concept is for you. If not, this is also for […]

Summer Farro Salad

Summer Farro Salad

Dearest Summer Swooners,  If you’re anything like me, summer is a test of how many different ways you can write the word “salad” on endless potluck sign up sheets. Everyone knows that salads are some of the simplest, fool-proof potluck contributions–but none of us want […]

Summer Toasts for Two

Summer Toasts for Two

Dearest Toast Fanatics,  Apologies I couldn’t come up with an alliteration with which to address you, but synonyms for “lovers” or “fans” that begin with “T” are harder to come by than originally anticipated. Anywho, I’m back with another simple, tried and true nutrient-dense 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 […]

Sweet Potato & Banana Smoothie

Sweet Potato & Banana Smoothie

Dearest Smoothie Spooners,  Or “smoothie slurpers,” whichever side you take. Normally, I like to slurp my smoothies through one of my fancy, reusable metal straws (thx Amazon!)–but this smoothie required me to take a step outside of my normal smoothie routine…for two reasons:  The beautiful, […]

Sweet ‘Tater Fries & Spicy Sriracha Ketchup

Sweet ‘Tater Fries & Spicy Sriracha Ketchup

Dearest fellow ‘tater enthusiasts,  I hear you. I see you. I am one of you. And yes–I’m here with a simply splendid spin on some sweet ‘taters guaranteed to please all the hungry mouths. The thing I like most about potatoes? They fit any food occasion. Breakfast? Hash-browns. Sweet […]

Spicy Thai Peanut Noodles

Spicy Thai Peanut Noodles

Dearest Noodle Enthusiasts,  This one goes out to all of you–especially those of you looking to spice up your noodle life. Yes, of course, I’m referring to literally spicing things up (hello, cayenne), but also to enhancing the nutritional quality of your pasta dishes. Picture […]

Spicy Parsnip & Potato Soup

Spicy Parsnip & Potato Soup

Dearest Soup Swains,  Don’t worry–until about five minutes ago, I didn’t know what the word “swain” meant either. Yes, I pulled the classic search “nouns that start with the letter ‘S’”–because I can’t pass up the opportunity for an alluring alliteration (see there? did it […]

Sun-dried Tomato & Mushroom Frittata

Sun-dried Tomato & Mushroom Frittata

Dearest Eggcelent Eaters,  Do you yearn for breakfasts that are both delicious and nutritionally-dense, but sometimes feel like you’re cracking under the pressure? Are you scrambling for fresh ideas to spice up your household’s breakfast routine? Do you ever find yourself lost in complication, wishing more […]

Hosting Happiness: Brunch Edition

Hosting Happiness: Brunch Edition

Dearest members of The Brunch Club,  You know, kind of like the Breakfast Club–but loads more trendy and exclusive? Let’s be honest, brunch doesn’t happen every day. It’s an occasion that should be revered, savored, and celebrated at least once weekly. In my opinion… If […]
