this recipe, slightly, otherwise this is the same salad my mom has been making since I was shorter than the countertops. Mom always adds sliced onion to the cucumbers. It is really good.
This Pear and Cardamom muffin falls in the middle of virtuous and fancy.They are relatively low in fat, but drizzled in a sweet glaze… and I’ve packed them full of fruit.
This Easy Seafood Stew is quick enough for a busy weeknight. Shrimp, white fish and clams – but you can modify the seafood based on what you like and have available.
This Tofu Noodle Soup is a quick vegetarian weeknight meal. Plus, the kids always say the long rice noodles in soup is a cool thing.
This is it. The only granola recipe you need.
Cashew and Cranberry Breakfast cookies – a grab and go breakfast. Make ahead. Freezer friendly. Vegan
Broccoli and Feta salad. A summer salad. Something you can make now and serve later today or even tomorrow. Polucks, parties, BBQs, lazy Saturdays
A simple muffin with greek yogurt and lots of cinnamon. Quickly before the rhubarb is all gone.
This Cucumber and Feta salad is like a deconstructed tzatziki sauce
And I am going to share with you a cake. A bundt cake. Which I made for no real occasion or reason other than I felt like baking one day. And I liked the way this one turned out, so here it is.
This is simply iced tea sweeten with fruit and fruit juice. It’s like a kid friendly cocktail. A fancy punch. And it cuts down on the copious amounts of juice kids can easily consume sitting around the pool on a hot day. And it’s cheaper. No more juice boxes.
I’ve made and written about various versions. Homemade granola bars are fairly easy and these don’t need any oven time. Which means 15 minutes, tops.
So my best sous-chef and I found this Coconut Jerk Shrimp recipe on the #Tkeveryday Recipe Challenge. It’s made with lite coconut milk. While you will rarely see seafood and fish on this blog, it is something that lands on our menu from time to time. And Gav happens to be a huge shrimp fan. Actually, he considers himself a “crispy shrimp expert”.
this Cauliflower Gratin is really comforting and rich and low carb. Perhaps Paleo, but not vegan unless you skip the parm
Here is a healthy little muffin to go with your weekend coffee. Vegan, nearly fat-free and packed with protein from chia seeds and quinoa. Next time you are cooking quinoa for dinner make some extra.
This banana chocolate chip muffin is a statement. It is not trying to solve your health and diet problems. No it is just muffin. Eat the muffin. Enjoy the muffin. Then walk away. Call it what it is. Be happy with it. And get on with your life.
There is something special about waffles. Effort and planning is involved. Or at least, it appears that way. In reality, as long as you have a waffle maker, they are about as much hassle as pancakes.
Everyone needs a recipe like this in their life. A new cookbook from Cupcakes and Kale author Jessica Nadel and a recipe for her Mediterranean Broccoli and Barley Salad.
I like to make something a little different on the weekends for breakfast. Steel cut oats take just a little bit longer than regular oats to cook but I love the hearty texture. This time with fresh pineapple and shredded coconut.
… I have a pooch that happens to L.O.V.E. pumpkin. Love! I tell you. I got busy and made Mr. H some snacks.
