Whole30: The Craft and Strawberry-Avocado Salsa

April 3, 2014

I would literally steal candy from a baby right now. LITERALLY. Right this second. Even if that baby had a half-eaten, gag-inducing Cadbury Creme Egg. The legit ones. The ones that look like a real egg. Wrapped in chocolate. [SHUDDER] Of course, that’s after I would punch the How I Met Your Mother writers in [...]

Spicy Strawberry and Goat Cheese Salsa

This salsa is what happens when you cut open what feels like a perfectly ripe avocado and find… well, not a perfectly ripe avocado. A perfectly ripe avocado isn’t grey inside. Dinner was supposed to be a fantastically delicious repeat of Salmon with Strawberry-Avocado Salsa. Studies have shown that you can’t have “fantastically delicious” with [...]

Kale and Quinoa Salad with Strawberries and Goat Cheese

Today should be “Garden Friday” where I show you how I somehow managed to make it another 7 days without killing the green things growing in my backyard. But it’s raining outside. Like, “you shoulda’ built that ark” raining. So instead of showing you our first zucchini, or telling you about my peach tree dropping [...]

Have you entered the KitchenAid Stand Mixer giveaway yet? You should! Contest closes Thursday night! Crammed into the busting-at-the-seams bottom drawer of my freezer is a collection of leftover bowls filled with… leftovers. There’s chili and chicken stock. And something that’s either more chili or possibly a meaty marinara sauce (I’ll find out for sure [...]

Grilled Salmon with Strawberry Avocado Salsa

It’s an unlikely combination, but one that works. Like, really works. It’s spring here in Texas, weather-wise if not quite calendar-wise yet. With all this beautiful weather comes a flood of fresh produce that no longer requires considering a second mortgage, unlike that sad-looking, coffee stirrer-thin asparagus for $5/lb that was out barely a month [...]

Strawberry Panini with Arugula and Goat Cheese

Strawberry Panini with Arugula and Goat Cheese

I absolutely adore the strawberry + goat cheese combination. Sweet, juicy, in-season strawberries meet a creamy, tangy goat cheese. It’s a combination that knows no limits: appetizers, sandwiches, and even dessert. Toss those strawberries with a good balsamic vinegar and peppery arugula, and pile it on some crusty French bread? There’s a perfect balance, a [...]

Roasted Strawberry Crostini with Basil and Goat Cheese

Roasted Strawberry Crostini with basil and Goat Cheese

I absolutely fell in love with the idea of roasting strawberries with basil long before I even took the first bite. Because after 30 minutes in the oven, my kitchen smelled amazing. My mother-in-law once served us cheesecake drizzled with basil syrup for dessert. Back then, the idea of basil going anywhere near something that [...]

I try to steal away an hour or so of each weekend to make breakfast ahead of time for most of the upcoming week. Muffins, waffle batter, scones, kolache… something to make our early week rush a little more efficient. Something we can grab with one hand as we’re locking the door and rushing out [...]
