Broccoli & Shrimp Zoodles

Need a juicy, zesty, fresh-tasting meal for Spring? Try this magical bowl of zoodles and angel hair topped with broccoli, kale, and shrimp, and doused with a lemon-garlic-white wine-butter sauce. I'm usually content with the meals I make for dinner but this one really...

Quinoa & Beet Salad with Feta

I'm definitely in "summer salad" mode - how about you? It's so nice to have an already prepared salad to eat when you: a) want to bring lunch to work to avoid the tempting, unhealthy foods in the workplace b) need a quick bite during that busy weekend project c) just...

Creamy Ricotta Pasta Salad Recipe

The minute I step outside I can feel sweat beginning to bead up on my forehead, chest and lower back. Give it a few minutes more and I'll feel it start to drip. A couple minutes more and it feels like Niagara Falls. It's July in Charleston, SC and the dog days of...

Dreamy Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

Growing up, honey mustard was my jam. French fries, sandwiches, chicken tenders, shrimp. I'd find anything to dip into honey mustard just so I could have the sauce. But during college, I took a honey mustard hiatus when I learned what was actually in the honey mustard...

Better Than Fried Okra

Fried okra bites are so 5 years ago. These panko crusted baked beauties taste amazing and won't clog your arteries. Did you know eating fried food even just once a week increases your risk for developing Type II Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease? Your risk is even...

Asiago Peppercorn Dressing

This creamy, tangy dressing works wonders over crisp lettuces. It's a salad worth putting on your weekly eats list.  I got a salad spinner for Christmas last year. There aren't too many things I hate more than wet lettuces in salad. The water displaces the dressing,...

Spiced Quinoa Parfait + Tips for Choosing a Healthier Yogurt

Ya'll. Have you tried using quinoa in place of granola in your yogurt parfaits? It's so good! The chewy quinoa is a nice texture against the creamy yogurt. It's also a great way to get your whole grains in as well as up the fiber and the cancer-fighting antioxidant...

Apple Pumpkin Pancakes

Growing up, it was common for my dad to throw some diced apples into the pancake batter on Saturday mornings. I didn't know it then, but it was such a pro move. Not just because it adds some natural sweetness to the batter, but also because the apple pieces cook only...

Anatomy of a Balanced Breakfast + Siggi’s Toast

I did not receive compensation for promoting Siggi's in this post. I support Siggi's because I enjoy their products and believe that they are a healthy alternative to many other high-sugar, ingredient-laden yogurts on the market.  Ever thought of spreading yogurt on...

Peanut Butter Pumpkin Toast

This peanut butter pumpkin mixture is simple, addicting and so versatile. It only takes 4 ingredients and comes together in minutes. It's rich in heart-healthy unsaturated fats, fiber, and plant based protein, and can add a nutritional boost to your day. Dip apple...

Kiki’s Summer Bowl

Since she's such a good helper in the kitchen, it only seemed fair to name a dish after her. Kiki is quite diligent about keeping the floor clean, ensuring that any food scraps that fall off the counter during food preparation are not left to sit on the tile floor to...

How to Build a Better Salad

I'm about to get pretty snobby about salad. You've been warned.   I feel like people hate eating salads because of the typical "House Salad" they've been introduced to at restaurants: iceberg lettuce topped with a few cherry tomatoes, some shredded carrots, and a...

Growing up, honey mustard was my jam. French fries, sandwiches, chicken tenders, shrimp. I'd find anything to dip into honey mustard just so I could have the sauce. But during college, I took a honey mustard hiatus when I learned what was actually in the honey mustard...
