Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner, which, in my language means all the best foods make a grand reappearance onto the plate. Mexican cuisine has so much to offer in the taste profile.

Strawberry Salad with Blackberry Balsamic Dressing

When spring season hits, so do my cravings for fresh food. It’s officially perfect weather for long days at the farmers market and I couldn’t be happier to see fresh fruit and local produce. Although you don’t have to go too far for fresh produce, the grocery stores around us are starting to re-stock on…

Sweet Potato & Farro Melt

A few days ago, Justin came home hauling over eighty pounds of pork meat from his last hunt. That means he came home with eighty pounds of Italian sausage, chorizo, bacon, bacon-wrapped tenderloins, ham, and pork chops from the local wild game processor. Filling our freezer up to the brim with meat, I knew I…

Zesty Egg Salad Avocado Boats

A slight twist on an old favorite with additional monounsaturated healthy fats, this recipe is zesty and all around delicious.

Lemon Orzo with Almond Crusted Chicken

This is another great dish to meal prep for lunch or dinners throughout the week. This recipe makes enough for about 4-5 people and if you add a salad or something else on the side it can stretch even further. The orzo can be eaten cold or reheated, which makes it perfect for dinner-on-the-go or…

Tomato Basil Brunch Bruschetta

There are certain ingredients that are meant to be together, like tomato and basil. The savory bite of the two married together just feels right in any dish. However, typically these two ingredients are found on the dinner table, not in a breakfast dish. Lately, I’ve been wanting something different for breakfast, other than my…

“Winter Citrus Salmon Salad”

In case you haven’t heard it enough already, Happy New Years! After the hectic Holidays, January comes flying in at full speed.

Pesto Zucchini Noodle Pasta

Zucchini noodles have been all the rage this past year, they’ve even earned themselves the nickname, “Zoodles”.

Among other vegetables I have seen spiralized into noodles include sweet…
