Salsa Verde

This weekend, we celebrate my favorite person on the planet’s 29th birthday. Matt is my husband, BFF, adventure partner, biggest supporter, and also a huge salsa snob. Pretty early into our relationship, I went to visit Matt in the city and he sent me home with a jar of fresh salsa. I think that’s when…

Summer Chop Salad

Happy Memorial Day weekend! I’ve been MIA enjoying the spring weather – finally! This weather has me dreaming of the upcoming long Summer days, so it’s only fitting that I share my favorite summertime salad. I’m back with this crunchy, colorful, hearty summer salad that’s the perfect side dish for any barbecue. I have been…

Perfect Pesto

It’s St. Patrick’s Day weekend, so I’m sharing one of my favorite green recipes with you before Matt and I pack our bags and escape to the beach for the next week šŸ™‚ Pesto is one of Matt’s favorite foods- growing up, his mom made it for him with the basil and parsley they grew…

Orange, Fennel & Arugula Salad with Honey Dijon Salmon

Hello and Happy 2019! I hope your year is off to a great start. I spent the past few weeks totally engrossed in new cook books (thanks Mom, Pam, and Janice!) thinking a lot about what I’d like my relationship with food to look like this year, and how to translate that into blog posts/recipes…

Quick Pickled Red Onions

I love knowing exactly what goes into them, especially becauseĀ it’s hard to find them without added sugar. I have found that…

Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

I will start by saying that this recipe is magical because it’s the ONLY way my husband will consider eating brussels sprouts. Yes, he is a grown man. When we met, Matt convinced me that he wasn’t a picky eater, but as the years went on, it becameĀ  clear to me that this was just…

Chia Berry Jam

I’ve been looking for something to step up my breakfast game, but have always been intimidated by the whole jam-making/canning process. I came across some chia seed jam recipes on Pinterest and it sounded so easy, I had to try! Because this recipe uses frozen fruit, it’s something you can make and enjoy year-round, swapping…

Ice Tray Herbs

I may be happily rushing into Fall with my chunky sweaters and blanket scarves without looking back, but I will miss having fresh herbs around. I have tried growing them inside in the cooler months, but the small amount of natural light we get in our current place isn’t up to my plants’ high standards,…
