Butternut Squash Soup with Candied Pumpkin Seeds

We’ve had squash a plenty in our farmshare for the past several weeks. Now that it finally feels like fall, I’m excited to make some soups. Naturally the first place to go was to use some of the squash adorning my counter tops. I found Deb’s recipe for this yummy yet easy soup and couldn’t […]

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 […]

PB-Cinna-Choco Energy Bites

I have a massive sweet tooth. I think its genetic, so I blame my dad. But seriously, I can’t make it through the day without some sort of dessert. I’ve made a few different types of these no-bake energy bite cookies before and they can do the trick for me from time to time. Now […]

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 […]

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 […]

I love smoothies in the morning. I wish I made them more. Problem is, I am not a morning person and neither is my toddler, so our mornings are usually mayhem and there is just no flipping way I have my act together enough to whip up a smoothie before work… #lifegoals But on the […]

Spicy Cilantro-Lime Coleslaw

Aaaaand, I’m back to reality… Our 10 day trip to the Carolinas was just lovely.  We spent time in Raleigh with friends, had a week in Kiawah and then ended our trip at Lake Murray just out side of Columbia, SC with family.  I adored all of the time spent with loved ones and experiencing […]

Kale Quinoa Pilaf

Holy cow.  This is my new favorite side dish.  I am a big fan of quinoa and am always looking for new ways to serve it.  This version comes together very quickly and is truly a one-pot dish.  The flavors and textures mesh very well.  Leftover s are great, too! you will need: 2 cups salted […]

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 […]

Sesame Ginger Salmon

I’ve been on an Asian flavor kick lately.  I found myself craving those flavors with salmon and ran by Whole Foods to pick up a nice piece of fish for dinner.  I had pinned this recipe from Jessica ages ago and thought it was time to try it.  I was not disappointed at all.  It […]
