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…

Burrito Bowl ft. Jalapeno Cashew Cheese Sauce

BOWLS! So easy, so filling. Which explains why I already have an almost identical post to this one. BUT, the jalapeño cashew cheese sauce is a game changer worthy of a second bowl post, so here it is! What goes in: For the bowl: Brown Rice Medley (from Trader Joe’s) 2 Sweet Potatoes, chopped 1 Red…

Pineapple Salsa on top of Cod, Beans, & Greens

Winter is FINALLY over and it is going to start to hit the 90’s this week, so I was trying to think of refreshing meals (even though I’ll be sitting in an AC office while eating them). After scrolling through Pinterest, I still had nothin, so this meal is the result of walking around Trader…
