Curried Cauliflower & Kale Quinoa Salad

Quinoa is one of my favorite things. I want to say grains, but it isn’t actually a grain; its a seed. I have found that most people either love or hate it, and I am firmly in the love camp. I’m always on the hunt for a new variation of this yummy super-food for my lunch […]

Sun Dried Tomato & Kale Quinoa

Quinoa is a stand by in this house. Whether for a dinner side or making a big batch for a week of lunches, I’m always whipping up a new version of this protein packed and filling grain. I usually just start throwing in whatever I have in my fridge or pantry or try to use what […]

Israeli Couscous with Roasted Vegetables and Pepitas

Have you ever tasted something while you are cooking it, and you just keep eating it?  Well, that happens to me a lot.  I go in for a taste to check for right texture and seasoning, and if it’s really good, I keep coming back for more.  I ate almost an entire helping of this […]

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 […]

The Best Crab Cakes You’ll Ever Eat

Matt’s mom makes bangin’ crab cakes.  I mean, for real.  We eat them every year on Christmas Eve…with some sort of steak, delicious sides and lots of champagne.  It’s become our holiday tradition and it’s awesome.  We all look forward to this meal so much that we stuff ourselves beyond reason.  I find myself craving […]

Grilled Corn & Black Bean Salad

This summer salad is fresh and delicious and goes perfectly with so many different dishes.  I served it with these yummy peach, bacon & arugula sandwiches and ate the remainder for lunch all by itself.  I think it would be great with some grilled chicken or alongside some tacos or fajitas.  It comes together quickly […]

Arugula, Chickpea & Feta Wheat Berry Salad

I’ve been in search of some good lunches lately.  I get bored with leftovers all of the time, which I’m almost shocked to be saying.  Because I am a real leftover lover for the most part.  I’m also not a big fan of sandwiches for lunch…I can do it once a week, but more than […]
