Pan Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Pomegranate (Whole 30, Paleo)

If you want a festive side dish for Christmas Eve dinner and green bean Christmas trees aren’t your thing, this is the dish for you. I like holiday meals to feel celebratory and seasonal, but not overly gimmicky.  Maybe it’s because I’m not terribly crafty,…

Sweet Potato Agrodolce

Sweet Potato Agrodolce

Sweet potatoes have my heart.  I love them prepared so many ways, and this is one of, if not my absolute favorite.  The tender, creamy flesh of the sweet potato make it ideal for roasting and lends a mellow sweetness on its own, but pair it…

Thanksgiving may look a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still get excited about (arguably) the most important part… the food!   I’ve teamed up with four other talented bloggers to put together a selection of five easy, tried and true Thanksgiving…

Squash Pasta with Sage Lemon Butter

Squash Pasta with Sage Lemon Butter

This is the season when food starts to get deliciously cozy, which is probably why I love cooking so much in the colder months.  There is a serious comfort factor that exists for me when the temperatures drop and a warm dish of hearty food…

Easy Teriyaki-Glazed Salmon Bowls

Easy Teriyaki-Glazed Salmon Bowls

This is less of a recipe than it is an idea. Take a protein, give it a quick marinade bath, serve it with a bowl of crunchy, spicy, tangy accompaniments. You may have caught on by now that we are very into “bowl food” around…

Tex-Mex Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Miso Teriyaki Chicken aka The Best Grilled Chicken

Miso Teriyaki Chicken aka The Best Grilled Chicken

Citrus Pork Tenderloin with Chimichurri Sauce

Citrus Pork Tenderloin with Chimichurri Sauce

It’s June, and it’s almost Father’s Day, so that means we are going to grill. To be fair, that’s a stereotype and an overgeneralization, but I find it to be fairly accurate in terms of predicting what will go over well this weekend at my…

Crispy Grain-Free Chicken Cutlets

Crispy Grain-Free Chicken Cutlets

These crispy, juicy, tender chicken cutlets are a bit of a marvel. I don’t know about you, but around my house crispy chicken is about the only thing we can all agree on. Television? No. Chicken cutlets? Yes. Chicken Milanese has always been a dish…

Crispy Cod & Summer Corn Salad

This meal is basically summer on a plate. Every June I get excited about sweet summer corn, it’s one of the vegetables I wait all year for, and it seldom disappoints. When corn is super fresh, you have to do very little to it (isn’t…

Slow Roasted Tomato & Garlic Pasta

Slow Roasted Tomato & Garlic Pasta

This is the kind of recipe I just love to make in the summer. The tomatoes are cooked low and slow, for 3 hours at 225F with zero hands on time, meaning dinner won’t be contributing to this heatwave we’ve had going on. I learned…
