When I first thought about recreating a pasta salad I considered two things. One being that it had to have a Mediterranean flavor, and two was that it must have black olives. I have a deep love for olives! Follow & Share!
This recipe for lemon herb stuffed omelette is one I shared while taking over the Whole30recipes Instagram page! It’s light and fresh, perfect for summer! It’s also incredible simple but has a touch of elegance and decadence which qualifies it to be served for brunch! Follow & Share!
Ever since I can remember I have been resourceful in ways I’ve been able to generate income for myself, and I truly believe that I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit. When I was 7 I was begging to cut the grass to earn some extra cash. I remember even asking my sister if she’d pay me to clean her room. I did whatever I could to save money and use it wisely on things that mattered to me (it’s all relative, I mean… Read More
I can’t wrap my mind around where summer went. It feels like it was just the beginning of July and here we are now at the end of August. Who let that happen? One thing I know for sure, I am soaking in on all of the summer produce possible. Fresh items like peaches, nectarines, berries (all the berries!), summer squash and greens are in such abundance right now. So I am using them up in every way I can possibly fit them… Read More
I love fall and winter for many reasons, partly the Holiday season, but if I’m being perfectly honest, it’s all the warming food that really does the body good. The foods of the season are things like winter squash, hearty herbs, root vegetables and savory meats. These foods give us sustenance, keeping us fuller longer. But yes of course, there is an association with the Holidays that makes these meals all the more special. It means friends and family come together, more meals are shared… Read More
The transition from winter into spring is here and we’re all anxious to celebrate! I think hunkering down with one last crazy cozy meal is just the way! I spent my weekend with a trip to the farmer’s market, some time in the sunshine but also a lot of time indoors, hunkering down working on projects and things I needed to get done. This meal was an easy one pan throw together that I knew would last me several meals. It’s warm spices take this… Read More
I am of the belief there’s nothing that cannot be combined, piled and squished into an acorn squash. Am I right? First of all, they are so darned cute! These petite squash have a ribbed silhouette that makes them a beautiful display. Serving them cut in half as a single portion is a great way to create what seems like a fancy meal, but takes little time and very few ingredients. If you make these and decide to keep them for meals throughout the week,… Read More
Pomegranates have been used for centuries to represent fertility, abundance, unity and love. It’s complexity, the tiny sweet pods between fleshy membrane and sweet and sour tartness of each seed make the fruit alluring. Interestingly pomegranates seeds are full of antioxidant properties, healing vitamins, minerals and immune supporting benefits. Behind the rich red skin lies the bursting granules of deliciousness. Similar with a coconut, you don’t know what’s inside or how to eat it without bursting it open to see for yourself. With it’s tempting… Read More
Confession: I’ve never liked chicken salad, ever. Really, the idea of the traditional version of mixing chicken with mayonnaise, boiled eggs, celery and sometimes even grapes offers no appealing factor to me. So it was something that I wasn’t going miss when I no longer used eggs regularly. However, I do like the idea of chicken salad. The portable way it’s thrown into lettuce cups and the accessibility of using leftover chicken that you have in the fridge. That is what inspired me to create… Read More
This might look like the a nightmare for whoever has to do the dishes, but I assure you it’s the exact opposite. Even though these roasted lemons begin to caramelize and their sugars ooze out of them onto the pan and burn, the part that looks burnt wipes right off!! In fact, I’ve thought several times of doing this just to clean my pans. The acidity in the lemon counteracts the burnt sugar and together actually makes the pan shine brighter! So this benefits you… Read More
