Sweet Potato and Pepper Hash with Baked Eggs

Sweet Potato and Pepper Hash with Baked Eggs

I’m on a roll with these breakfast items. Well really, I’m just super into sweet potatoes lately. And I’m also into food that tastes even better the next day. Since John and I have later nights Monday through Thursday, we typically sit down to eat together around 8:30 PM. I typically get home around 7:45/8. So, yeah, I’m not making anything fancy. Typically, I cook a lot on Saturday and Sunday, and one or two mornings a week, I prepare…

Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Spicy Sriracha Glaze

Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Spicy Sriracha Glaze

It kind of seems like I only eat vegetables and cookies if we’re considering this space of internet a reflection of my eating habits. And that’s kind of true. (I actually have another cookie recipe for you coming up!) I tend to lean more toward the vegetable end. I eat vegetables with every meal. Like literally. (In the literal sense, not that crazy figurative sense that people seem to say.) I eat a breakfast salad daily, which is essentially vegetables…

Chocolate Pistachio Date Truffles

Chocolate Pistachio Date Truffles

Ok. So these really aren’t truffles per se. But I couldn’t get myself to call these Chocolate Pistachio Date Balls. Truffles have the connotation that you’re going to want to savor the flavor of these. Like truffles, they’re simple, only requiring 4-6 ingredients (depending on if you coat them in chocolate…but, really, that’s not an option). Unlike truffles, they’re dairy free and naturally sweetened only with dates! BUT, while we’re on the topic. Names like “energy balls/bites” are a great…

Dijon Cashew Cream

Dijon Cashew Cream

When I was a kid I thought that I didn’t like sandwiches. Like any kind other than peanut butter and jelly. Turns out that’s still mostly true. However, one day I was eating a sandwich (the bad kind, the non-PBJ kind) at my neighbor’s house and realized that I do, in fact, like sandwiches. I just don’t like mayonnaise. My mom happens to like mayonnaise, so she put that on our sandwiches. Me? Not so much. Even the name sounds…

Red Curry with Purple Potatoes and Swiss Chard

Red Curry with Purple Potatoes and Swiss Chard

John is dying a slow death as he nears the end of the Whole30, but this flavorful meal distracted him just enough. I really thought that he would have been used to some of the changes by now. And really, guys, he’s not suffering. Well. He may argue otherwise. But he feels better. His energy levels have stabilized. He feels satisfied with all of the meals. Yet. The fact that he has limitations imposed on him is the real thing…

Balsamic and Thyme Marinated Portobello Mushrooms

Balsamic and Thyme Marinated Portobello Mushrooms

Easily one of the best things about the whole30 is that it’s stimulating my creativity. I typically have my go-to vegetables that I love. Those always include Brussels sprouts, butternut squash, and leafy greens. John will always happily eat all of the vegetables that I prepare…as long as they’re accompanied by some type of pasta. There’s something in his Italian heart that makes him undeniably and inexplicably in love with pasta. So yeah, those vegetables are fine, but they are…

Roasted Garlic and Sage Butternut Squash Soup

Roasted Garlic and Sage Butternut Squash Soup

This is barely a recipe. It’s kind of embarrassing. But also genius. This Roasted Garlic and Sage Butternut Squash Soup is a 4 ingredient (plus seasoning), healthy (and vegan) soup, perfect for those winter months where the hours of day light are few, and my ambition is low. HOWEVER. In my truest of fashions, I decided to complicate this recipe. But it’s totally worth it. (That’s how I typically justify my complications in other aspects of my life as well) I…

Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

So should we talk about the fact that I’ve been MIA for 3/4 of a year? Yeah? Well this cease in absence is a declaration of my commitment to balance my life with more “me” time. Cue: this post about these gluten free, vegan chocolate chip cookies bars.   Why these healthy little bites? Let’s speculate: maybe we indulged a bit too much over the holiday season? Maybe we really shouldn’t have had that other serving, cookie, cocktail, etc? How about…
