Muffin-Tin Omelets with Kale, Sundried Tomatoes, and Goat Cheese

When I started Whole30, it was a desperation move to see if I could find something that might speed up healing my plantar fasciitis so I could start running again. It sounded like an okay-ish idea. Actually, that’s totally a pants-on-fire lying lie. I knew it was a terrible idea. That I would be miserable [...]

Whole30 Breakfast: Spicy Sweet Potatoes, Green Beans, and Eggs

Hey – remember that time I did Whole30 last year and it was so awesome that I had a very big and very public ugly-cry meltdown (The Meltdown, as we refer to it… when we dare refer to it) in the middle of Whole Foods over the price of strawberries and embarrassed the &^$# out [...]

Goat Cheese & Asparagus Grilled Cheese

Who else went overboard and bought nearly 6lbs of asparagus because it was $.88/lb? Welcome to the hoarder club! Who else has eaten roasted asparagus for breakfast, lunch, and dinner pretty much every day? Welcome to the we-clearly-don’t-understand-hoarding club!

Sweet Potato & Spinach Carbonara

My friend Katie has been called The Carbonara Queen. Crab, jalapeno & corn, BLT, lemon & spinach. If it can be whisked into that creamy sauce of bacon, pepper, eggs, and cheese, she has done it. She’s kind of my Pasta Patronus. And I’d like to be just like her when I grow up: One [...]

Roasted Cauliflower

It’s mid January. And you’re probably still eating your vegetables, right? A couple of months ago, I shared a killer-addictive recipe for roasted cauliflower. Who uses “killer-addictive” to describe cauliflower? Someone who puts browned butter, prosciutto, and sage on cauliflower. That’s who. Cauliflower is in the market now and the heads are abundant, cheap and [...]

Loaded Hasselback Potato Bites

How are you spending New Year’s Eve? We typically celebrate with our closest couple friends, a big spread of appetizers, and good wine. What more could a person ask for? And because you can’t take the country out of the girl, we’ll probably light a bunch of *^%# on fire. Outside the city limits, of [...]

Roasted Cauliflower with Sage Browned Butter and Prosciutto

Let me tell you about the Thanksgiving Side Dish That Wasn’t. No matter how many times you’ve hosted or cooked for 279 people at your house for a party or a holiday dinner, you aren’t immune from forgetting something.

Garlic & Orange Roasted Green Beans

I’m pretty good at a handful of things. And throwing a bunch of green beans seeds into the dirt and mostly remembering to water them when Mother Nature won’t is near the top. This is the barely-a-recipe recipe that we’ve been using to put a dent in the 2-pounds-a-week green beans that have been coming [...]
