Turmeric Chicken Kebabs with Cilantro Basil Chimichurri Sauce

I love when I am super productive in the morning and have a free afternoon/evening to be creative in the kitchen. Corey and I read each other’s minds when we were meal planning as we both suggested that we make chicken kebabs for dinner one night this week. I had a package of multicolored bell peppers that I didn’t end up using last week, so what better way to use them up? I think the…

Quick & Easy Egg Bowl

When it comes to breakfasts, I am 8 times out of 10 more likely to choose a savory item over something sweet. Eggs are my jam. I LOVE eggs so much. At only 70 calories per large egg, they average about 5 grams of fat and 6 grams of protein. They are also SO versatile — scramble some up for breakfast, hard boil one for a midday snack, or throw a fried egg on your lunch or…

Creamy Cashew Basil Pesto

Basil. Quite possibly my favorite herb. Recently, I’ve taken preference to enjoying pesto on my pasta dishes rather than tomato sauces. Something about the pungent freshness of basil has become so much more enticing to me. In my opinion, pesto is the king of sauces. Now as you’ve read before, my fiancé has a lactose intolerance — so store bought pestos are usually out of the question due to the cheese content. There are vegan pestos, but…

Almond Milk

Now that I have a hand-me-down professional grade blender (thank you mom!) I decided I want to start making my own almond (and soon cashew) milk. I have been drinking alternative milks for years now, not because I have an intolerance, but because I never really liked the taste of regular milk. My fiancé though, does have a lactose intolerance; so that makes it a no-brainer for us to use non-dairy items in our home. There…

Toasted Coconut Curry Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are having a total moment right now. This is a short and sweet recipe post for my currently favorite way to prepare sweet potatoes. (shout out to the close second, sweet potato toast, or sweet potaTOAST, if you will.) These diced and spiced sweet potatoes are a BANGIN’ sidekick to any meal. Yesterday I had them along side some fried eggs and avocado, last week along side a tilapia filet topped with fruit salsa. This bright…

Cinnamon Chipotle Lentil Vegetable Soup

It has literally been raining for 10 days straight here in Watertown, NY. Which has been great for being super productive, but not-so-great for much else. (How long does it take to become Vitamin D deficient? lol) I don’t know about you but when the weather outside is frightful, a hot bowl of soup sounds so delightful!…(Corey is right, Im so corny.) Back when I was living in NYC, I would often make a large pot…

Cilantro-Lime Broccoli Slaw

Taco night was a hit! There is something so great about getting together with people and communally stuffing your face with delicious eats. Tacos are probably our (Corey and I) favorite food of all time, so we were pretty excited about having people over and being able to mass produce tacos. We like to use corn tortillas for our tacos (shout out to GF foodies!). Quick tip: warm the tortillas on a skillet, and then…
