cherry smoothie

It’s cherry season! This Memorial Day, I was so excited to see boxes of bright red cherries stacked up in the fruit section of my grocery store. I brought home a box and made this cherry pie smoothie, which includes fresh cherries, graham cracker crust, vanilla yogurt and milk. If you don’t have the energy to make a cherry pie (if you’ve made one before with fresh cherries, you know the amount of work involved in pitting the cherries one […]

best chili 8 copy

There’s a time and a place for 30-minute beef chili: a weeknight when you just want to throw something in a pot and have it be warming and pretty delicious in a matter of minutes. And then there’s a time and a place for those more lazy afternoons watching football when you can also make the World’s Best Vegetarian Chili and bake homemade cornbread to boot. That’s not really my designation; this is a recipe adapted from Cook’s Illustrated called the “Best […]

Green-Smoothie-1 FEAT

Smoothies are always satisfying and (usually) extremely healthy. What makes the unhealthy ones so unhealthy? They’re often fruit-based and loaded with unnatural sugars and preservatives. Where do vegetables fall into the equation? Should we be scared to mix them in with their sweeter cousins? I say no! This green smoothie features a blend of kale, spinach, cucumbers and celery, combined with some of our favorite fruits to create a healthy, vegetable and nutrient-rich glass of satisfying goodness. Need we say more? […]

What if you could make a pasta dish in less than thirty minutes using a clever mix of store-bought ingredients and homemade pizzaz that was delicious, unusual, and nutritious? (Well… It contains vegetables, at least.) And what if it all fit in one pot for easy cleanup and no stress? I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty good to me. Adapted from The Kitchn, this dish uses store-bought frozen tortellini combined with sweet potatoes, spinach and just a […]

buddha-bowl

Buddha bowls are my new favorite way to get in all of my vegetables for the day. If you haven’t heard of them yet, I’m sure you’ve seen them around the web, since they’re kind of a thing right now. But what’s with the name? They actually called “Buddha” bowls because they look like, well, a Buddha belly with all of those vegetables piled on top! In terms of what vegetables you can add to them, you can go crazy and add […]

A long time ago, in a galaxy… well, okay, it was this galaxy. I bookmarked a recipe for Mark Bittman’s shrimp – also known as “The Simplest and Best Shrimp Dish” or “Shrimp My Way.” It sounded pretty good, but, for whatever reason, I never made it. Well, stop the presses: I made it recently and it is pretty good. I don’t know if it’s the best shrimp dish ever—no Bubba Gump here, I’ve yet to taste every shrimp dish in the […]

This Thai chicken pizza is inspired by a crazy good pizza I had the other weekend up in South Lake Tahoe, CA. Instead of marinara sauce, this pizza is lathered with Thai peanut sauce made from scratch using peanut butter, soy sauce, fresh ginger, garlic and brown sugar. Then it’s topped with chicken and mozzarella cheese and baked in the oven. After it’s done baking, this Thai pizza is topped with fresh ingredients, including cilantro, carrots, sprouts, and lime. What other […]

Do you remember those red and blue gas station slushies as a kid? Those are what this drink reminds me of, except representing a much healthier version! There are no artificial dyes and I minimized the sugar in this recipe. I used frozen strawberries to get the cold slushie effect, but feel free to add in some fresh strawberries if you have some you need to use up! The lemonade part is very easy to make with only three ingredients: fresh […]

Do I really need to sell you on this one? Look at that picture! It contains mascarpone! That’s an Italian cream cheese. In a pasta! With delicious springtime asparagus! Are you crazy?! Scroll down to the recipe and get started making this! Still here? Well, okay, you’re a tough sell. I can respect that. But seriously, I toast walnuts and cook asparagus in the same water as the pasta for extra convenience, making this essentially a one-pot dish, and there […]
