Veggie Noodles + Garlic Wine Sauce

Butter. Garlic. Wine. – Three things I don’t want to ever live without. Luckily, all three can be found in this indulgently delicious, yet veggie packed, recipe. I don’t tend to use the word indulgent in my recipe posts, because many associate that word with other words like heavy, rich, unhealthy, or bad. This recipe however, though none of those four latter words, does deserve a description as indulgent, because it is as delicious as…

Avocado + Cara Cara Salad

I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am with the daily increase in daylight. Through my twenties, there has definitely been a pattern of winter related blues and just over all blah-ness. I think most people struggle with some level of seasonal affective disorder, especially us in the more northern and chillier terrains. The combination of darkness and cold really wears on my productivity, my esteem, and my emotions. Its so refreshing…

Chocolate Chip Marbled Banana Bread

When it comes to cooking, I feel like I have a really good handle on things. I can improvise with ingredients or measurements and usually find success. Baking, however, is a completely different beast. I have a truly difficult time with creating baked goods from scratch without a recipe. This is partly because I just don’t experiment enough. If I continued to try and try again at a recipe, I am sure I would finally…

Sweet Potato Nests – & the Importance of Breakfast

Breakfast may very well be my favorite meal of the day. This is one part due to loving eggs so much, and one part due to loving the feeling of fueling up for the day. I feel like the meal I fill myself with in the morning sets the tone for how energetic I will or will not feel for the rest of the day. I’ve only skipped breakfast a handful of times in my…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Waffles

Guys. If you’re looking for a breakfast recipe that could basically double as a dessert, look no further. These waffles are all you need. I had a few bananas on their way to being brown and thought, “Why not experiment with a new recipe?” rather than just making a batch of standard banana bread. We just recently purchased a mini waffle iron, so waffles seemed like the obvious answer. We went out for a little…

Dark Chocolate Everything Clusters

I hardly go a day with out chocolate. If you peeped your head into my freezer on any given day, you’d likely see a bar of 72% Dark Chocolate in the door shelf, maybe even two bars. There is something just so magical about the taste and texture of chocolate, and there aren’t many things that can’t be made better with a little chocolate. Chocolate doesn’t just taste amazing; it also packs so powerful health…

Falafel & Farro Bowl

Its easy to get into little food ruts of making the same kind of meals each week. If you’re looking for a recipe to shake things up, look no further. I used to make falafel pretty often when I was eating mostly vegetarian, but I kind of forgot about it for awhile. However, this past weekend I stumbled upon a falafel picture on Instagram from a blogger I follow, and I immediately craved the the…

Winter Citrus & Fennel Salad

If you’re looking for a dish to improve your mood and brighten your day: Look no further. Corey and I have been watching a lot of Viceland TV over the last year. One of their most recent additions to the line up of shows is Its’s Suppertime with Matty Matheson. Its your average cooking show minus the likes of Rachel Ray or the beloved Ina Garten. Instead this show features a very boisterous, vulgar, hipster…

Lemon Garlic Hummus

I could easily take down a whole container of good hummus in a sitting if given the opportunity. I’ll also admit that store bought hummus can be one of those “forget you have it in the fridge” kind of items. The best flavors or brands often have the shortest shelf life and the highest price and it feels so terrible when you have to toss any un-used expired leftovers. In efforts to waste less and…
