Cheesy Eggplant and Lentil Bake (Vegetarian + Gluten Free)

Cheesy Eggplant and Lentil Bake (Vegetarian + Gluten Free)

This Cheesy Eggplant and Len til Bake has been one of the most requested recipes I’ve created… not just one of the most requested vegetarian dinner recipes but most requested recipes period.   I hinted at it on my Instagram stories about a month ago, and…

January Smoothie School:      7 Days of Smoothies

January Smoothie School: 7 Days of Smoothies

Do you love smoothies?  Welcome! Do you dislike smoothies?  Welcome! I am both of you.   It’s hard to believe that I didn’t care for smoothies for most of my life, actually up until about a year ago.  There were two main reasons for this:…

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…

Creamy Pumpkin Risotto

Creamy Pumpkin Risotto

Just when you thought you’d hit your “all things pumpkin” limit for the year, I’m here to prove you wrong.  We are taking pumpkin in a different direction here, a savory one, that is just as comforting and cozy as your favorite pumpkin bread or…

Fall Roasted Vegetable Salad

Fall Roasted Vegetable Salad

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…

No-Bake Pumpkin Truffles

No-Bake Pumpkin Truffles

In transparency, I struggled with what to call these lovely little bites. Are they vegan?  Yes. Are they gluten free?  Yes. Dairy free?  Yes. Refined sugar free?  Yes. Easy to whip up in the time it takes you to read this blog post?  Yes. But…

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…

No-Peel Apple Almond Crisp

No-Peel Apple Almond Crisp

Controversial as it may be, in almost all cases I prefer crisp to pie.  There are certainly outliers here, I love Key Lime Pie or Lemon Merengue Tart for instance, and if I had a Black Bottom Oat Pie delivered from Four & Twenty Blackbirds,…

Herby Marinated Lentil Salad

Herby Marinated Lentil Salad

Everybody needs a few great picnic-y salads in their repertoire. I’m all for the classics, like a great potato salad, a crunchy slaw, fresh greens… you know the ones. But I love to bring something less expected, and one I can be almost sure no…

5 Minute White Bean Hummus

5 Minute White Bean Hummus

For all you fellow snackers out there (you’re my people), I have a host of easy, nutrient dense recipes that are great to have on hand in the fridge for those days when you don’t want to deal with preparing lunch. Those kinds of days,…

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!…

Grilled (Faux) Caesar Salad

Grilled (Faux) Caesar Salad

This is hardly a recipe, but it’s so good and such a staple around here that it’s impossible not to share it with you. When I lived in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, I lived around the corner from the Wythe Hotel. They had a fabulous restaurant there…

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…
