Beet Slaw with Peach Vinaigrette

As much as I complain about summer, and the heat (mostly the heat), I do LOVE a good slaw or salad recipe! And I recently I thought about peaches. This is how most of my best recipes start actually. With a single ingredient! Summer is always the best time for peaches! Have you ever tried…

Garlic Aioli and Chicken Pinwheels

Do you ever go to someone’s house and look in their fridge and it’s pretty much mostly sauces? Well that’s me. I’ve been obsessed with sauces and condiments from a young age. Couldn’t tell you why, I just always thought that if I ate the same meal all the time but changed the sauce it…

Bruschetta Chicken

I LOVE tomatoes! We have had a lifelong love affair actually. My first food solid was spaghetti and I was covered head to toe in sauce and noodles. As a plus, it’s summertime and that means I can pick them right off the vine at my parent’s house and they are as sweet and amazing…

Cheesy Cauliflower Mash

Last week, I really wanted to attempt a cold cauliflower salad but I was CRAVING mashed potatoes. One thing you will learn about me is that I will NEVER tire of mashed potatoes. Ever. But, with trying to be healthy and eating more vegetables, I wanted to flex my cooking new things muscle and try…

Watermelon Cucumber Feta Salad

Sorry, I’m not sorry for posting back to back cold composed salad recipes – it’s summer and I am taking advantage of summer cooking to the fullest! And why does everything taste better in a bowl? Kidding (maybe), but I am fond of these new bowls I just got. Maybe next week I will try…

White Bean Summer Salad

Summer is here (even though the weather isn’t REALLY cooperating) but I am in full summer food mode! This recipe was actually a brain child of mine that I morphed from a recipe I eat at one of my favorite restaurants in town. I wanted to create something that was more WW points friendly that…

Honey Garlic Shrimp

I’m going outside my comfort zone. I will admit that I am not the best cook when it comes to seafood but I’m pretty adept when it comes to flavor so along with my trusty meat thermometer, I think this one turned out just fine. There isn’t any specific stir fry season, in my opinion;…

Apple Cucumber Spring Slaw

I love spring. Not because of the wonderful allergies of course but because it gives me the excuse to eat cold foods ALL. THE. TIME. And not saying there is something wrong with eating cold foods in the winter. I’m just not a fan. So any time I have the chance to whip up some…

Basil Honey Vinaigrette

Oh summer, I can almost taste you right around the corner and it doesn’t help that I’m already in salad mode. Summer equals amazing salads! Win-win! This week, I wanted a BLT bad, and I’ll be honest: I don’t eat bacon a lot but when I do, it’s on! So I had a thought to…
