Sweet Potato-Almond Butter Muffins

What can I say? I am currently obsessing over sweet potatoes! Before the shelter-at-home mandate, I bought a bunch because I knew they would last, and I knew could get a lot of use out of them, including a satisfying sweet-tooth treat if needed, like

Hello! How are you? Let me guess – you are home, slightly bored (or majorly restless) and wondering what activities will occupy your day today? How many of you are cooking as a way to pass the time? For me, cooking is a wonderful creative 

Cheesy Sweet Potato Soup

Cheesy Sweet Potato Soup

Full confession – this cheesy sweet potato soup recipe is a result of me cleaning out my fridge. I love cooking like that, using things I have on hand already, and this soup was the happy by-product of a hodge-podge of ingredients I had hanging around hoping to get noticed. Initially inspired by a sweet potato, my mind got wandering to the idea of soup. As I dug through the fridge I found an almost-too-old carrot and I knew I had an onion hanging around, too. With these three veggies as my base, I knew soup would be perfect. Especially as Michigan teases us with springlike days followed by snowy surprises, a bowl of warm soup is still a cozy comfort.

You may have heard over on Instagram that I have given up meat and alcohol for the month of February, and I’m also trying to consume less dairy (i.e. cheese!). This is what I do when I want to eat better, I make restrictions for

Sweet Potato Pancakes with Apple-Mustard Relish

I’m a firm believer that almost any vegetable can be shredded, shaped and pan-fried into a most delicious “cake” or “pancake”. In fact, I rank it up there with my top favorite ways to cook almost any vegetable. While this recipe highlights the ever-popular fall ingredient sweet potatoes, I have been known and should be expected to repeat this method as the seasons change with other veggies. I mean, really. What’s not to like about crispy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside, golden, hearty, nutritional goodies? Oh, and how about the fact that they practically demand some sort of topping and/or dipping sauce? Yep, pretty much anything I can dip into a sauce or drizzle with a sauce gets high marks in my book. Look how craveable these beaut’s look!

Truth be told, I don’t really care for boneless, skinless chicken breast. I have always loved other foods exponentially more, so I’ve tended to ignore chicken completely. Some exceptions apply, like braised chicken thighs or crispy chicken thighs, of course, but dark meat is a

Six Easy Ways to Best-Self

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2018. I am so excited for what’s ahead this year. I imagine a lot of you, myself included, are eager to start off on the right foot with a healthy routine and better lifestyle habits, all of which I have some thoughts on.

First of all, “healthy” is such a complicated word these days. So many diets, so many theories, so many food alternatives – what one person thinks of as healthy is completely opposite of someone else’s perspective. As I’ve gotten older, I try to focus on choices that make me feel like my #BestSelf. I love that term because it’s not about dieting at all, it’s just about making one choice after another to become the best version of me!
