Turkey and Baby Kale Salad With Avocado Sage Dressing

The other night it was just me and the kids for dinner and I decided to get a little creative with the turkey cutlets I had defrosted. I have been trying to keep avocados on hand for taco nights and because the 3-Year-Old can’t get enough… Read the rest of this post »»

The Simplest Mayo-Free Coleslaw Ever!

I’ve been feverishly loading up on fresh veggies from the farm stand like they are going out of style because, well, they are! I’ve already gotten the itch to experiment with pumpkin but I’m just not ready yet. Fall may be … Read the rest of this post »»

Coconut-Crusted Flounder Over Pineapple Fried Rice

Monday night I defrosted flounder fillets with no real dinner plans besides “Hey, let’s have fish!” At first I was considering breading them in pistachios like I do tilapia but then I remembered it was just going to be the… Read the rest of this post »»

Citrus-Thyme Chicken on a Stick with Optional Brussels Sprouts

Homemade Sausage and Sweet Potato Strata

My gym started a new feature on its website called “Tasty Thursdays” and our new trainer posted a sweet potato casserole idea I just had to make my own — because, you know, I can’t follow a recipe. Anyway, I’ve… Read the rest of this post »»

Greek Yogurt With Coconut and Cocoa Nibs

Sometimes I feel weird sharing my more simple ideas here on the blog so I just instagram and post them on Facebook and twitter. But then, I forget not everyone is confident in the kitchen, and I start to get questions like, do you have the exact recipe… Read the rest of this post »»

15-Minute Whole Wheat Pasta With Peas and Ham

Sometimes I feel like my cooking talents are wasted on my family. Other times, when I’m not so self-confident, I assume I must just be a bad cook. How awesome would it be if they not only liked what I cooked but appreciated how I can pretty … Read the rest of this post »»

Chocolate-Coconut Energy Balls

I made my first batch of “energy balls” a couple of months ago and fell in love with their simplicity. I’ve never quite been able to master my own granola bar but put a few forgiving ingredients in a bowl and mash together into… Read the rest of this post »»

Indian-Inspired Chicken and Vegetable Chili

Let me tell you a little story about me and Indian food. It all starts in northeastern Pennsylvania in the ’80s. I grew up with an Italian mother who made a pot of homemade sauce once a week. We cooked a lot and lived on pasta and things like … Read the rest of this post »»

Simple Shrimp Spaghetti

I had no plans on sharing this idea when I started cooking it, but once I took a taste I thought, “Let me see if the family likes it. If they do I’ll write it up.” So I snapped some photos and then served. They LOVED IT! Even the kids!!… Read the rest of this post »»

Chopped Beet, Avocado and Zucchini Salad With Thyme, Lime Juice and Fresh Mint

Cheesy Zucchini Tomato Bake

Mom did it again and dropped off a zucchini the size of a baseball bat — click here to see her harvest from a few years ago. I love it! Zucchini is one of my favorite vegetables because it’s so versatile and makes a great recipe bulker,… Read the rest of this post »»

Homemade Chocolate Syrup That WILL Fool Your Kids!

I’m SO excited to share this idea with you! I’ve been experimenting for months. First, I started making homemade chocolate milk with cocoa powder and maple syrup but my kids never went for it. The grittiness of the powder  never… Read the rest of this post »»

Spicy Slaw

I’ve been wanting to post this idea for weeks! Which is rare because I normally get an idea, make it, share it and then move on. That’s right, I rarely make the same thing twice. It’s just how I’m wired. I love to constantly… Read the rest of this post »»

Beets and Basil

This is such a basic idea I almost wasn’t going to share it but then I figured, why not? Sometimes I think we overcomplicate food. This is a reminder to myself to keep it simple. The reactions from the family were pretty typical. The Husband… Read the rest of this post »»

Guac-Turkey Burgers

I might as well apologize now. Avocados may take over my blog. I’ve fallen in love. I really didn’t think it was possible. I tried to like guacamole years ago but I never saw the appeal. I knew the health benefits of avocado and tried… Read the rest of this post »»

Avocado Mango Salsa
