Vegan Spring Soba Noodle Bowl

Today I’m giving you a tiny peek into my everyday. Coffee.  It must happen first thing in the morning.  Before I can even think about opening my laptop, turning on the news, putting in my contacts, I must have at least one sip of good, strong coffee. I start everyday with green juice or a […]

Panko Crusted Barramundi Sticks with Harissa Aioli

Pappardelle with Spring Vegetables and Cream Sauce

Happy Friday, friends!

Grown Up BLT Grilled Cheese

Remember those Roasted Tomatoes from last week? You’d think it would be a safe assumption that the idea for this glorious Grown Up BLT Grilled Cheese Sandwich was born out of those tomatoes.  But no, it was the other way around. I should back up even further, because the idea for this sandwich was actually hatched […]

Ratatouille with Baked Eggs

You might remember the other day when I was all I’m-so-over-winter-I-hate-the-cold-and-snow-and-I-just-want-to-bury-my-boots-in-the-closet-and-wear-cute-shoes-again.  Wah, wah, wah.  Ok, so maybe I actually said most of that in my head, but I know we’re all thinking it. Good news, you’re not going to get any more complaining from me.  Somewhere between Wednesday (or maybe it was Tuesday) and this […]
