Cucumber Pineapple Salsa

Cucumber Pineapple Salsa

A few years ago I learned that pineapple is an excellent post-workout recovery food.  It has lots of great anti-inflammitory properties, so it helps to speed up the recovery process.  Plus, it’s totally delicious, so it’s pretty much a win-win.  Not so shocking, my pineapple consumption increased shortly after that. Currently, triathlon season is in […]

I’m totally dragging this morning.  If someone could send some coffee my way that would be great.  Really, really great!  Please, help. Why is it that I can wake up at 7am on Saturday, fresh faced and bursting with energy, yet when the alarm goes off at the same time on Monday morning it still […]

Roasted Garlic Hummus

Roasted Garlic Hummus is a vegan, gluten free dip that’s healthy and packed with flavor. As much as I hate to admit it, I’m really not into football.  Well, actually, it’s not just limited to football, all sports (except triathlon) are kind of  lost on me.  I wish I could get into it, but I (now […]

Sundried Tomato & Olive Tapenade

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  I think I’m still kind of tired from traveling around to see as much of my family as possible, and I’m definitely still full from the seemingly endless stream of food that was in front of me all day. Although maybe not too full to think about […]

Serve this Heirloom Tomato Tartine with mixed greens for the perfect summer lunch or lite dinner. I briefly considered roasting these tomatoes.  Oven roasted tomatoes are simply divine.  The thought of a sweet, slow-cooked tomatoes with salty whipped feta and crunchy, toasted farm bread sounded heavenly.  But, on second thought I realized that roasting these […]

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sliders

Get out your slow cookers!  These Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sliders are the perfect addition to your weekend BBQ! I don’t usually think about my slow cooker when it’s 90 degrees outside.  I’ve always associated it (wrongfully so) with winter comfort foods, soups and stews.  But, in the past few weeks I’ve been seeing slow […]

Caramelized Fennel Risotto

I’m feeling a little bewildered right now.  I just discovered that in my three years of blogging, this is only the third time I’ve shared risotto with you.  And why do I find this odd?  Because I absolutely, postively adore risostto!  My love for this creamy rice dish knows no bounds. Sadly, this is not a dish that can […]
