Healthy-ish Chocolate & Banana Oat Muffins (vegan optional)

I’ve never considered myself a baker, but lately I find myself baking more and more. This is mostly due to clients who love baked goods, but also because I’m feeling more and more comfortable experimenting with baking recipes. I like savory dishes because it’s easy to change recipes and adjust flavors without worrying about whether… Continue reading Healthy-ish Chocolate & Banana Oat Muffins (vegan optional)

Quinoa Grain Salad with Fresh Dill & Goat Cheese

One thing that makes me feel totally on top of life is having a grain-based salad in the fridge for convenient and healthful eating. Unlike lettuce based salads, grain salads get better with time, so they’re perfect as make-ahead meals or for leftover lunches. The ingredients in this particular quinoa salad are simple but come… Continue reading Quinoa Grain Salad with Fresh Dill & Goat Cheese

Summer Veggie Nourish Bowl with Classic Lemon Hummus

Yep, this my third nourish bowl post this month. Why? Two reasons. First is because I love nourishing bowls of goodness, packed with an array of nutrients, flavors and textures. It’s my favorite way to eat because it’s healthy, convenient, packable, stores well in the fridge and, most importantly, they’re absolutely delish. If you want… Continue reading Summer Veggie Nourish Bowl with Classic Lemon Hummus

Quick & Easy Tabouli Vinaigrette

When I decided that a tabouli recipe was next on my list for development, I knew my tabouli salad wasn’t going to be traditional. In my mind, traditional tabouli is made from bulgar wheat, fresh parsley and mint, olive oil, lime juice, chopped tomatoes, salt and pepper. The herbs are strictly chopped. There’s no cucumber allowed.… Continue reading Quick & Easy Tabouli Vinaigrette

Meatless Meal Plan: Car Camping for Two

Matt and I are really big on camping. And when I say that Matt and I are really big on camping, I really mean that Matt is a camping pro and I’m along for the ride. That’s not to say I don’t love it though. I actually grew up spending my summers glamping (glamourous, more… Continue reading Meatless Meal Plan: Car Camping for Two

Portobello Shawarma Wraps with Creamy White Sauce

I am super excited about today’s post. Like so stoked. And that’s because I honestly didn’t expect much out of this cooking adventure, at least not out of the first attempt at it. I mean, I knew it had potential. The potential was just realized sooner than expected. Despite knowing nothing about Shawarma (other than… Continue reading Portobello Shawarma Wraps with Creamy White Sauce

Roasted Tomato & Creamy White Bean Pita Sandwiches

It’s Day 3 of my “debloat and recharge detox” and I’m feeling good and staying motivated. My detoxes are easy in that I’m not seriously reducing calories or only eating cabbage soup. It’s more about portion controlling, loading up on veggies and fruits (even more than usual) and reducing excess fat, sugar and carbs. Because… Continue reading Roasted Tomato & Creamy White Bean Pita Sandwiches

Best of Basic: Oven-Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

Every so often, when I’m feeling a little sluggish, or feeling like I’ve been particularly indulgent lately, I like to reset my routine and get back on track. This detox, as I like to call it, could last for a couple days, or if I’m feeling super motivated, a few weeks. With summer just around… Continue reading Best of Basic: Oven-Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

Speedy Fajita Lettuce Wraps with Marinated Tomatoes (Vegan Optional!)

Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone! Now, I personally do not need an excuse to eat Mexican food, but I’ll take one without complaint. And a Corona Light with a squeeze of lime for that matter. Yes, that sounds muy delicioso. In honor of Cinco de Mayo this year, I decided to not only share a… Continue reading Speedy Fajita Lettuce Wraps with Marinated Tomatoes (Vegan Optional!)

Vegan Verde Crack Sauce

For awhile now I’ve been wanting to recreate the Mexican Goddess Dressing from the infamous Chop’t restaurant, a fast casual, create-your-own-salad chain that has pretty much taken over the lunch scene in New York City. Although it moves fast, between the hours of 12 and 2pm on a week day, the line is literally out… Continue reading Vegan Verde Crack Sauce
