Goat Cheese & Asparagus Grilled Cheese

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! Cheap asparagus means two things: 1) Spring is just around the corner (and seriously, could it [...]

Sweet Potato & Spinach Carbonara

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

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.

Cauliflower is in the market now and the heads are abundant, cheap and [...]

Garlic & Orange Roasted Green Beans

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 [...]

BBQ Chicken Stuffed Baked Sweet Potatoes

BBQ Pulled Chicken Stuffed Baked Sweet Potato

We’ve eaten some pretty good stuff over the last almost three Whole30 weeks (hello, fire-sale King Crab legs!) but our favorite meal (besides the crab) has been this a baked sweet potato half topped with barbecue “pulled” chicken, served along side something green. And not just because it’s an incredibly budget-friendly meal… but that helped, [...]

Spinach & Quinoa Salad with Goat Cheese

Spinach and Quinoa Salad with Goat Cheese and Pine Nuts

We now have a 3 year old! A 3 year old who eats things like quinoa, kiwi, prosciutto, and even a bite of sushi now and then. The crazy thing is that I can distinctly remember the first time I tried each of those foods – because I was far, far older than 3. But [...]
