Crunchy Coconut Almond Granola

  Is it just me, or is this year zipping by fast? I’m sure I’ve said it before, but seriously. 2014, slow down, please!! (!!!). I made a batch of this granola for a quick breakfast/snack for the week. I love it mixed with yogurt and fresh berries, or just by itself. I liken it […]

Chunky Avocado Salsa

  We’re getting ready for our second annual pre-Easter egg hunt brunch this Sunday and also for my in-laws visit to meet our little Henry, who will be 3 months next week (what!!??!!). This avocado salsa, along with my new obsession, plantain chips, has been our go-to snack all week long. Hey, no double dipping!!! […]

Lemon Poppy Seed Cocoroons

  My BFF is in town this week while Mark is off on a business trip. We’ve done a lot so far.¬† Finished a 5k, went to my niece’s baptism, had laughing-fits from stories from our college days, finished more bottles of wine than I would like to admit, baked, cooked, and made time to […]

Big Pot of Chili

I’ve been dreaming of a big pot of chili for a while now. But it wasn’t until my aunt asked for my chili recipe for a cook-off at work, that I realized I had never posted my go-to chili recipe on el blog. Sure, I’ve posted this pumpkin chili recipe, that happens to be crazy […]

Salsa Fresca

This salsa tastes fresh, hence the name, Salsa Fresca. We also lovingly call it “Salsa de Papa” since it’s something Mark makes on the regular here in our house, using the recipe he acquired from his dad. It’s obviously great¬†with chips, but we also love it on scrambled eggs, in sandwiches, added to rice and […]

Sweet Potato Tacos

  We’ve been home for week with our new little bundle of joy, Henry. Maybe this is too soon to say, but the second time around doesn’t feel as hard of an adjustment. Sleep deprivation is a little bit more manageable. Working off of a new eating/pooping/sleeping schedule doesn’t feel as stressful. Guess you can […]

Green Smoothie (that doesn’t taste “Green”)

  I don’t own a juicer, so with that said, here’s my contribution to eating cleaner in 2014, with a nice green smoothie. I’ve always preferred smoothies over juice, anyway. This smoothie is packed with fresh spinach, bananas and a sprinkling of fresh cranberries to round it out. I used coconut milk in here, but […]

Granola-Crusted Nuts

Granola-crusted nuts are quick to assemble and a great anytime-snack.

Cauliflower Rice

This here is my new favorite way to eat rice. Cauliflower rice, or how I like to call it, Cauli-rice, is simply amazing. It tastes so close to the real contender that even my husband didn’t notice he was missing the carb version. The preparation is pretty easy, toss chunks of cauliflower into a food […]

Dairy-Free Cheese Popcorn

Our good friend Kelsey was in town visiting for the week. She’s a foodie like me so it’s always fun to put our heads together on new recipes that are a little off-beat. She’s known to bring out the more creative culinary side of me, which is one of the reasons why I love her […]
