Cinnamon-Apple Overnight Oats

So, I have a lot of oat recipes on the blog. I eat oatmeal in some form almost every single day, even on the weekends. If I’m not eating oatmeal, it’s because I’m traveling or because I’m going out for breakfast/brunch…which doesn’t happen all that often. And that’s ok. It’s comforting to know that whatever […]

Chai Apple Oatmeal

Ok, ok it has happened. I am fully embracing fall. Bring on the flannel, the boots, the PSLs. But before you go full-on leaf raking, tailgating and pumpkin carving, make yourself a tasty bowl (or mug, as the case may be!) of this chai apple oatmeal. Before I ever liked coffee, I was a tea […]

Hummus Zoodles

Hummus Zoodles

I’ve hinted at this recipe for the past few weeks with my “What’s in the Box?” series, but it’s time to share it officially. With the bounty of zucchini and summer squash arriving in my delivery each week, hummus zoodles have become my go-to summer lunch. I love them because they requires no cooking–only spiralizing, chopping and scooping–and uses […]

Cauliflower Rice

Cauliflower Rice

A good friend of mine recently put out a call on Facebook for low-carb lunch ideas. Eating too many carbs (and not enough protein) is something I personally struggle with. Just ask MyFitnessPal. But, I have been doing a better job lately by replacing rice and pasta with other starchy foods that are higher in […]

Tzatziki Sauce

This post is the second part of a series. Learn how to make pan-fried falafel to go with your tzatziki here, and check back next week for a homemade pita recipe. Falafel has become a regular meal in our household, in part because it freezes so well. It’s easy to make a big batch of […]

Eggy Wrap with Chorizo

So, the classic eggy wrap is pretty great. Scrambled eggs, cheese and hot sauce all wrapped up in a tortilla for a perfect, delicious and (if need be) portable meal. However. If you skip the hot sauce, add in spicy sausage and switch the cheese…you have something different, but just as delicious! A coworker made […]

Buffalo Chickpea Salad

As a firm believer that hot sauce makes almost everything better, it was only a matter of time before this salad came about. I made this salad on a day when I really wanted buffalo wings, but had no time or energy to actually go get said wings and no chicken with which to make […]

Kiwi Oatmeal

I have gone most of my adult life thus far thinking that I did not like kiwi. I don’t know if I had a bad experience as a kid or what, but for many years I avoided kiwi at all costs. However, in the spirit of trying new things (or re-trying old ones), when I […]

No-Knead Wheat Bread

My friend Doug shared this artisan bread recipe with me a few months ago, and told me how easy and completely foolproof it is. I tried it out, and it really is simple. The original makes a ton of bread though (more than I have space for in my freezer), so I made some adjustments […]

I love the food (pancakes? coffee? eggs?) and I also cannot function without a solid meal to start the day. That’s why shortcuts like this […]
