Late Summer Gazpacho

I love me some ripe heirloom tomatoes. Just. so. good. I’m good with just slicing and eating them, but have been wanting to use them in other recipes, particularly in their raw form. Seems like a waste to cook a ripe heirloom! I’ve never been a huge fan of gazpacho, but when I saw this […]

Cabbage & Collard Slaw with Tahini Dressing

Last year I got collards in my farmshare and wasn’t sure what to do with them. I didn’t want to do the traditional southern style preparation, so I tried this cole slaw instead. I liked it a lot and it was a nice departure from the usual cabbage slaws I make in the summer. This […]

Crunchy Collard Green Slaw

I have never bought collard greens before, so when they appeared in my CSA box a couple of weeks ago, I wasn’t sure what to do with them for an easy summer dish.  After a quick Pinterest search, I found this great recipe to try.  I was pleasantly surprised with the delicious flavors, especially since […]

Garlic Kale Chips

I was skeptical of kale chips before I tried them.  I thought, “how could that be delicious? A green leafy vegetable cannot be a chip!”  Well I was wrong, they are super good.  They never last more than a day in this house…I just can’t stop myself. I’ve made them several times, always switching up […]

Banana Chocolate Almond Smoothie {dairy free}

I’ve been getting up later and later as the school year has progressed.  I have absolutely no time in the morning to do anything other than get myself ready and out the door.  I am lucky if I grab anything for breakfast other than an iced coffee.  Sometimes I manage to grab a yogurt or […]

Kale Pesto

This was my first week of my CSA Farmshare.  I already know this is the best food decision I’ve ever made.  A box full of yummy, fresh food is just what this indecisive meal planner needs.  All I have to do is supplement with a few things to make a full meal…makes my life so […]

Nutty Baked Blueberry & Maple Oatmeal

Baked oatmeal is a great, healthy warm breakfast option.  I particularly love it on a chilly morning.  I’ll hop out of bed and pop it in the oven and snuggle back up until its ready.  Nothing like coming downstairs to the yummy smells of cinnamon in your kitchen to brighten your morning!  This recipe is […]

Shrimp Cobb Salad

Once the weather starts to warm up and I start seeing signs of spring, I tend to have a desire to eat healthier and lighter.  I start pinning a large amount of salad recipes and finding ways to pack enough flavor and protein in them so that my husband won’t be hungry an hour after […]

Hearty Vegetable Soup with Farro

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, this has been the winter of soup in the Cheater Bites kitchen.  Could have something to do with the fact that it’s been snowing non-stop in Pittsburgh for 3 solid months… I recently made a big batch of vegetable broth, so I had lots of veggies in my fridge.  Then […]

Kale & Quinoa Salad with Maple Dijon Dressing

When it comes to eating kale raw, I’m a huge fan of Trader Joe’s organic Tuscan kale.  It’s not quite as earthy, if that makes sense.  So it’s my go-to for salads, and this salad is awesome.  The flavors and textures are great together…lots of depth to every bite.  And the dressing is the perfect […]
