Buyer’s Remorse

You know when you are laying in bed at night and can’t sleep so the next best option is to think about all your regretful decisions? There’s nothing like a walk down Regret Road to put you to sleep, am I right? While I could fill this blog with my many regretful decisions, I am…

Thai Inspired Salad ft. Shrimp

You know when you have had a long day and get home and are starving? The last thing I want to do is stand around and cook food so I usually resort to shoving all the snacks in my face until I am full of regret wishing I would have just ate a legitimate meal….

White Wine Pasta ft. Brussels Sprouts

I usually just use olive oil on my pasta instead of sauce. Lately though, I’ve been getting really into making my own sauce and this one was worth writing down AND it’s v easy. What goes in: Brussels Sprouts Olive Oil Pasta (I used red lentil pasta, but any kind does the job) 3 Tbsp….

Parmesan Cauli Tots

If you think you don’t like cauliflower…roll it in a ball and cover with cheese and then let’s talk. What goes in: 1 Head of Cauliflower OR 3 cups of already prepared Cauliflower Rice 1 Bunch of Green Onions, minced 1 Bunch of Parsley, minced 1 Cup Parmesan Cheese 3/4 Cup of Bread Crumbs 1…

Nicoise Sister Salad

Inspired by a craving for a Nicoise salad, but as usual subbing things in & out depending on what I already had laying around AND it still hit the spot. I highly recommend this pretty little salad and the minimal effort it takes to make. What goes in: Your choice of lettuce- I used a…

Veggie Fried Rice

I honestly think I could live the rest of my life just eating fried rice. It’s definitely my go to meal when I am short on time (lazy) and money (post fun weekend, or probably any weekend). I almost always have rice around and you can throw whatever veggies in it you have on hand!…

Veggies Wrapped in Veggies

One trip to the farmers market and a giant zucchini later… Only 50 cents too! Anyway, now I have a lot of veggies to use, so what better way then a chard wrap? To be honest, not all the wraps would stay together so another option is to deconstruct and make a salad. Same recipe,…

Roasted Chickpeas

Another quick & easy snack! Warning: really addicting, especially when watching netflix and mindlessly shoveling handfuls into your face. Which is probably for the best because if you try to save them in a tupperware they lose their crunch (but are still tasty). What goes in: 1 Can Garbanzo Beans (chickpeas, same diff) Olive Oil…

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potato fries are easily one of my favorite snacks, plus they take almost no effort to prepare. Here is possibly the easiest recipe you’ll ever see! Enjoy! What goes in: 1 Sweet Potato Olive Oil Seasonings: Paprika, Black Pepper, Himalayan Pink Sea Salt What you do:  Preheat the oven to 385. Cut your sweet…

Chipotle Shrimp Tacos ft. Salsa y Rice

So I am talking chipotle as in the seasoning, not inspiration from the fast food norovirus place, just to clarify! AND, disclaimer: usually with anything I cook I just use whatever seasoning I have on hand and I am not particular about what exactly goes in, but in this case I happen to think the…

Watermelon Salad ft. Quinoa, Mint, & Feta

It is officially summer and I know that because this past week it has been hotter than a goat’s butt in a pepper patch. But, I am not complaining! After the longest winter I’ve ever lived, I will take the heat any day. I remember a hot day when I was younger and hearing my…

Cheesy Spinach Bread Bundles

Sometimes all you need is cheese wrapped in bread. And some spinach to balance it out? This little treat is dedicated to slow Saturday mornings filled with carbs and naps. Enjoy! What goes in: 500 grams of Spinach (one of those plastic boxes you see at the store) 2 cups Ricotta 1 Egg Yolk 1/3…
