Recently I realized how veggie-focused my blog posts have been this month. Well, this post for Roasted Beet and Arugula salad is no different. What can I say? Can’t stop, won’t stop! A big reason for my vegetarian-skewed diet these days has a lot to […]
Today, I’m pulling from the archives, folks, and sharing my oldie but goodie recipes for Grilled Blueberry BBQ Chicken and Broccoli Salad. In my opinion, a quintessential summertime meal! It occurred to me recently that I’ve been posting mostly vegetarian recipes. The reality is, that’s […]
So, we all know by now that I love to cook and I do it all the time. Daily, in fact. Whether I’m cooking for clients, friends, just myself or recipe testing for this blog, there is rarely a day that goes by that I don’t cook something. However, when we are knee-deep in 90 degree weather (Hallelujah and Amen!!!), I too prefer to cook a little less. Here are 5 tips to avoiding your kitchen this summer so you can either cook less, or just spend more time outside.
You guys…..! It’s peach season! Did you hear me? Peaches! That means it’s summer and the best time of year, in my humble opinion. Every summer I enjoy peaches by tossing them on the grill and serving them a la mode with some crushed nuts, […]
Alrighty, friends….comin’ at you with something fresh and summery today. My Corn and Basil Risotto Salad is so fresh and flavorful, I can’t even explain it. You’ll just have to cook it and see for yourself! Even more exciting, it’s one of my favorite summer […]
OMGosh! How much do y’all love No-Cook recipes in the summer? I mean, we’ve been having a string of 90+ degree days here in Michigan and I’m craving crisp, fresh, bright, veggie-packed meals. Lately, this has meant lots of salads, but the other day I combined a few of my favorite flavors to create this delightfully delicious dish of raw cauliflower and golden tomatoes with creamy chive ricotta and a jalapeno-shallot mignonette. So yum! You should try it too…really!
On a scale of 1-10, I think we all agree that rescuing dogs gets a 10 for nobility, compassion and straight-up coolness. Am I right? Well, what about rescuing produce?! I happen to think it deserves the same amount of reverence. After all, food waste […]
Recently, I subscribed to Hungry Harvest…a food rescuing mission that just launched their newest delivery zone right here in Metro Detroit. Cool, eh? You can read more about Hungry Harvest and my experiences with the rescue boxes in an upcoming post. In one of my […]
So, last night I did something really smart. Wanna know what? I meal planned! What is it about the term “meal plan” that sounds so complicated and serious? It was really quite simple, and it was my way of starting this week on a healthy foot.
Since I’ve been testing some salmon recipes lately, I had a few portions of cooked salmon in the fridge. My first thought was to turn those leftovers into my Spring Salmon Salad. Y’all know how much I love chicken salad, and salmon salad is just another rendition. To honor the season, I’ve used peas and asparagus, along with sautéed kale and micro-greens for a little leafy nutrition. On a slice of whole grain toast, this dish is fiber-packed and ready to picnic, which, with Memorial Day coming up, also makes it a great recipe to whip up for your long weekend plans.
