Southwest Shredded Chicken Bowls

Southwest Spiced Chicken Power Bowls

Some of my friends and I are in a Bachelor fantasy league. Feel free to make fun of me, I don’t care. It’s awesome and a legit reason to pound some wine on a weeknight. It’s kind of like fantasy football, but we “draft” the hot messes from each season of the Bachelor franchise and then hate-watch […] Read more…

Crunchy Thai Peanut Chicken Salad

Crunchy Thai Peanut Chicken Salad

This is it… my first official post and new recipe of 2015! Of course, just like any good red-blooded American, I’m kicking off January trying to reset my body and undo all the damage I did over the holidays. This means lots of salads, but as we know, I LOVE salads so this isn’t really a […] Read more…

Favorite Fall Tomato Soup

Favorite Spiced Tomato-Pumpkin Soup

It’s been awhile! Not to sound like a walking cliché, but the holidays have really snuck up on me this time around. Don’t ask me if I’ve started my gift shopping, because as the groundbreaking Canadian-reggae musical group MAGIC! would say in their seminal work “Rude,” “Tough luck my friend, but the answer is no!” Anyway.

Smoky-Sweet Autumn Breakfast Hash

Smoky-Sweet Butternut Breakfast Hash

I’ve been getting slightly bored of my typical post-Saturday-morning-gym egg-and-vegetable scrambles so I decided to change it up a bit and really embrace some fall produce. If you don’t have butternut squash readily available, you could definitely use sweet potatoes instead, for a more traditional hash. I think in order to make this one really pop, […] Read more…

Sweet + Salty Autumn Chopped Salad

Sweet + Salty Autumn Chopped Salad

Another fall evening, another delicious salad for us all to enjoy. This one originates from my friend Kasey, who threw together the brussels/bacons/pear/cran combo one night when I was over at her place. As mentioned, it has plenty of sweetness – cranberries, pears, pecans, slightly caramelized brussels – but the saltiness of the bacon evens […] Read more…

Curried Quinoa Avocado Naan Flatbreads

Curry Quinoa + Avocado Naan Flatbreads

Know what I love? Naan. Most bread items I can take or leave, but naan is where it’s at. Especially when topped with all sorts of savory textures and flavors. Like, say, warm quinoa. And cool avocado. Yeeesss. These naan flatbreads are my new go-to snack/app when I have people over for lunch/dinner and want […] Read more…

Green Coconut Curry Chicken Slow Cooker Recipe

Slow Cooker Green Coconut Curry Chicken

As I mentioned in my recent chili recipe post, I got a crock pot! This, my coconut curry chicken, is the next meal I’ve perfected with my new slow cooker. For this recipe you could totally use red or yellow curry paste if you prefer it over green. Red curry paste is actually my favorite, but […] Read more…
