Tex-Mex Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Tex-Mex Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

One of the things I love to do is recreate modern, nutritious versions of childhood favorites. I’ve got a healthy version of this classic Italian pasta coming your way very soon, and I’m so excited to share it with you. In the meantime, let’s talk…

Greek Meatloaf with Feta & Roasted Peppers

Greek Meatloaf with Feta & Roasted Peppers

Everyone needs a great meatloaf recipe, if not multiple meatloaf recipes. There is something about meatloaf that brings people together… everyone seems to love it. This meatloaf is inspired by Greek flavors, combining a mixture of beef and lamb with salty feta, roasted red peppers,…

Miso Teriyaki Chicken aka The Best Grilled Chicken

Miso Teriyaki Chicken aka The Best Grilled Chicken

It’s officially grilling season here in Connecticut, and that puts a serious pep in my step. It’s funny how every May, when the grilling starts to ramp up, I am once again reminded of how enjoyable and convenient it is to. I don’t know how…

Zucchini Skillet Lasagna

Zucchini Skillet Lasagna

Who doesn’t love lasagna? Call it the Italian in me, but lasagna will always have a place in my life and on my table. As much as I am happy to indulge in the real thing from time to time, I have come to love…

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

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…

Cauliflower Alfredo Pasta

Cauliflower Alfredo Pasta

When I first saw the idea of using cauliflower as a base for an alfredo sauce, I had a similar reaction to what you might have had. 1) Cauliflower Alfredo? That’s not real alfredo sauce. My (insert Italian grandmother, father, neighbor, etc) would disown me!…

Slow Cooker Banh Mi Bowls

Slow Cooker Banh Mi Bowls

If you’re anything like me, I love making a big batch of flavorful, nutrient dense protein to have in the fridge for a few days. I tend to eat mostly protein, vegetables, and complex carbohydrates like potatoes or legumes for the majority of my dinners…

Creamy Butternut Macaroni & Cheese

Creamy Butternut Macaroni & Cheese

Forewarning: This is not a salad. It will not be the lightest thing you eat today, perhaps. It is mac and cheese, after all. What it is is delicious, creamy, gluten free, and packed with vitamin C and beta-carotene from that butternut squash. Feel free…

Crispy Salt & Vinegar Smashed Potatoes

Crispy Salt & Vinegar Smashed Potatoes

Salt and vinegar potato chips are a big thing around our house. What’s not to like? Salty, crispy, with that bright acidic flavor? Yes please. But we try not to eat potato chips with our dinner (unless it’s burger night, then it’s perfectly acceptable.) My…
