My version of the Burger Lounge veggie burger

When we go on vacation, we make it our mission to try out as many local restaurants and faves as possible. We’ll ask for ideas (you always have the best!), walk around to explore hidden dining treasures, and if we fall in love with something (like Mon Ami Gabi in Las Vegas for breakfast) we’ll visit multiple times before coming ...

I also prepped that angel ...

PRO meal: Mexican stuffed sweet potatoes

I’m fully convinced that everything goes with sweet potato. You can add more sweet (butter, brown sugar and cinnamon = the trifecta of foodgasms) or use the sweet potato as a lovely complement to your favorite savory dishes. One of my all-time favorite sweet potato combos: atop a salad with rotisserie chicken, goat cheese and balsamic dressing- it’s absolutely heavenly. ...

PRO meals: Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

Slow cooker, many nights you’re the very reason why we have a “real” dinner. Chicken cacciatore is one of my favorite easy summer meals, but the delicious smell of it simmering on the stove also makes it appropriate for fall. This past week, the only way it was going to happen would be in the slow cooker. I’m pretty sure ...

Raw jalapeño crackers

When things get a little, um… shriveled… over here, there’s really only one thing to do with them. Put them into the dehydrator! Duh. It’s where things go to die…or be born again? I’ve gotten a little overzealous with my jalapeño consumption. They’ve been thrown into eggs, salads, eaten with hummus, plain, it’s a little out of control. There are ...

PRO meals: Spicy chopped salad

Sunday, I’ll make and chop as many foods as possible for the upcoming week, and then when we’re hungry, it’s so much easier to grab something, add a few finishing touches and feast. I try to have at least 2 “real” meals a day, ...

Baked Breakfast Cookie

It took some trial and error, friends, but I’ve finally perfected the baked breakfast cookie. Here’s the back story: Almost 5 years ago (has it really been that long?!) I endeavored to create a portable, healthy breakfast option. I was always on the go, especially in the mornings, and wanted to something I could pack up and take with me ...

Savory Quinoa Muffins

I was in the mood for something a little different when I made quinoa muffins for the week. I LOVE this sweeter version, but was feeling like something a little more savory. Taste-wise, they were everything I wished for them to be: a mild nutty flavor from the quinoa, robust sundried tomatoes, creamy goat cheese and bright, fresh spinach. The ...
