Roasted Radishes & Thyme

Posted on

  We’re in full fall swing, let the #roastallthings commence! Starting with root vegetables to be exact, I love roasting vegetables to bring out their natural sweetness and make a warm savory side dish to pair with any meal. Radishes are a long time favorite of mine and with so many varieties, there are endless possibilities when it comes to preparing them. I especially love roasted radishes as they make a great alternative to potatoes while still maintaining lower starch, and lower carb, without lacking… Read More

Crispy Brussels Sprouts

Posted on

  Let’s face it, Brussels sprouts are basically baby cabbage and ‘baby’ anything is cute, right? So naturally, you’d think more people would be all heart-eyes over Brussels sprouts, and I can tell you I am, though I haven’t always been. I love cabbage, and always have. In fact my Grandpa and I have jokingly fought over my Grandma’s cabbage. But Brussels sprouts, not so much. I feel like they’re the younger sibling, totally left out of the fun and somehow they’ve gotten the bad… Read More

Cooking has mostly been my outlet of choice throwing a little bit of this, a little bit of that together and watching the flavors meld and transform. However, sometimes you just want a dang BAKED good! And for those times, I attempt at baking. I was so excited when Lauren from Empowered Sustenance¬† asked me to create a recipe for a guest post on her site. I knew, having followed her for quite some time… Read More

Roasted Carrot Soup & Horseradish Cream

Roasted Carrot Soup with Horseradish Cream

When I first decided to make this I wanted flavors reminiscent of tomato soup. I know you may be thinking, what?? Carrots don’t exactly seem like they would work well for that type of experiment, but trust me they do. Growing up I was not fond of chicken noodle soup, despised “cream of” anything and generally the only canned item of any kind that I liked were asparagus and I’m pretty sure that’s because they were super salty (I love that). However, tomato soup was… Read More
