Loaded with crunch and texture, this slaw is super easy to toss together. Our broccoli, apples, nuts, and dried cranberries are tossed together with an apple cider vinaigrette. No mayo in this slaw! Perfectly fresh and a great transition dish into fall as apple season […]

Corn, Tomato, and Avocado Salad

Corn, Tomato, and Avocado Salad

If you haven’t been able to tell, corn is a food group of its own for me in the summer. Eaten straight off the cob slathered in butter, tossed into a salsa, or in this avocado salad, I can’t get enough of it. And if […]

How To: Instant Pot Corn on the Cob

How To: Instant Pot Corn on the Cob

Corn is ABUNDANT right now. Everywhere you turn there is a stand selling freshly picked corn ready for the eating (and ready for the dousing of butter..). Corn is a staple in our summer diets so I make it many ways, but in the hot […]

Spaghetti Squash. A super easy and filling swap if you’re trying to cut back on carbs. I love how well it works with a variety of flavors. What I don’t love? That it can take a solid hour to cook in the oven and it’s […]

Fresh Pineapple Salsa

Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner and it’s never too early to start getting in the fiesta mood! I’m a salsa girl. To me the chip is nothing but a vehicle to get the salsa in my mouth. You know what’s another vehicle […]

Greek Chickpea Salad

As the weather warms up, I’m looking to spend less time standing over a hot stove or oven and more time outside soaking in the vitamin D (preferably with a glass of wine in hand). This recipe solves this need. Just some slicing and dicing […]

Quinoa Caprese Salad

Quinoa Caprese Salad

When I was younger, I didn’t fully appreciate caprese salad. I didn’t get the hype. I just would pick out the mozarella and leave the tomato and basil. Fast forward, now it’s one of my favorite combinations. The caprese spin on this quinoa gives those […]

Buttermilk Biscuits

Buttermilk Biscuits

By now you should know that I’m not afraid of carbs. Life is short and sometimes you need a fluffy, flaky biscuit drizzled in honey. I love how quick this recipe comes together. I like to use a smaller biscuit cutter so you have lots […]

Happy almost St. Patrick’s Day! I’m not Irish, but this is one of my favorite days of the year. I can’t even begin to express how excited I am that it falls on a Saturday this year. I’ll be spending the day in St Paul […]

Homemade Soft Pretzels

Homemade Soft Pretzels

Guess what day it is? PRETZEL DAY! I like pretzel day. (My fellow Office fans out there get me?). These pretzels are simple to make, no lengthy rise times. They’re great as is, or go a little crazy and have them with some cheese or […]

Easy, No Knead, Overnight Focaccia

Easy, No Knead, Overnight Focaccia

Happy Wednesday! A little personal life digression… I’ve been struggling with back pain for a while now due to a torn disc (I swear sometimes that I’m 24 going on 84…) Today I finally received a steroid injection and am hoping it gives me a […]
