Harissa Roasted Green Beans

It was totally unplanned, but apparently I’m on a side dish kick this week. I love green beans, especially Roasted Green Beans, though I don’t make them nearly enough. A while ago when L and I were shopping for dinner groceries I suggested green beans. He claimed mentioned he didn’t like them. What’s not to […]

This Creamy Tomato Soup is like a warm, velvety hug that you don

I think we’ve seen the last of the 80 degree days, and that chill that’s been in the air is here to stay for a while. I suppose it’s inevitable.  Bring it on. Oh, and by it, I mean cozy comfort foods. Instead throwing on a scarf or sweater to warm up, I’ll be swaddling myself […]

Weeknight Garlic and Herb Crispy Roast Chicken Breasts

This weekend I tackled the dreaded closet switch-over. The second I got started, I sort of wished I hadn’t. Until I found my navy & white vest from Stitch Fix earlier in the year. I cannot wait to wear it! Bring on all the fall things! Since I was in full on fall mode, it […]

Easy Thai-Inspired Carrot Soup

September 5, 2014

It might as well almost be December because I found myself starting to look for a new winter coat the other day. I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt at the time. It might be best for me to slow down. I seem to keep forgetting that even though we’ve moved past Labor Day, it’s still […]

This simple vegan and gluten free Sweet Pepper and Mushroom Soba Noodle Stir Fry is fresh, delicious and you

Say hello to my new favorite 20-minute dinner – Vegan Sweet Pepper and Mushroom Soba Noodle Stir Fry. The alternate title was here’s-everything-in-my-fridge-that-needs-to-get-eaten-before-we-go-away-for-the-long-weekend-stir-fry. Just didn’t have the same ring as the actual title. A little too long, perhaps? Yea, I kinda thought so too. Last week was an awkward week in terms of cooking. After […]

How is it that summer always goes by so darn fast?! This summer, especially. This time of year always makes me feel like I’m getting pulled in opposite directions. Half of me is super excited for all things pumpkin & apple, cool fall mornings and cozy sweaters. The other half of me is hanging on […]

Remember last Friday when I teased you with an instagram photo of blueberry basil simple syrup in the works? Yea, I was totally prepping for this killer drink. Basil is completely flooding the farmers market and blueberries (like, the really good kind) have been sticking around longer than usual this year. Take advantage. Load up, […]

It’s been kinda quiet in these parts this week.  Sorry about that! I’ve been a little sidetracked with a project – otherwise known as, putting the FINAL edits on the Freekeh eCookbook!  Also writing the introduction (which I’ve been putting off for months) and coming up with a name.  Yea, so this thing is really happening.  And […]

A super belated thank you for your well wishes on last weekend’s triathlon!
