Steak Salad w/ Goat Cheese & Caramelized Shallots

Pine Nut & Sunflower Seed Pesto

My husband and I share a garden with my parents in their amazing backyard. My mom grows a ton of basil and we had so much I decided to make some pesto for the both of us. I made two jars of the traditional pine nut pesto and still had so much basil left that…

My Take on The Gladly Chopped Salad!

I had this salad at The Gladly two years ago and since then it has been in my top 3 salads OF ALL TIME. They also serve this at Cowboy Ciao. If you look this salad up it literally has its own Facebook page. Its that good. My husband has only had the one I…

Scallops & Grits

This is one of the first things I tried to make for Ross when we started dating. I think a lot of people get scared to cook salmon and scallops but they are both so easy and quick once you know how to do it right. I add caramelized corn and onions to the top but…

GF Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

As you know I am a big fan of chickpea desserts but when I saw this one with just almond flour I had to try it. These turned out so ooey gooey and peanutbuttery. They were perfect for freezing into an ice cream sandwich because even frozen they were so soft and chewy. Here is…

Cauliflower Pizza! Pepperoni Jalapeño & BBQ Chicken!

This is one of my go to dinners and I think I have finally mastered the crust. The first time I made this it was super crumbly and you could not pick it up like a normal pizza. The trick is a little flour. You don’t have to add it or you could use less…

Shrimp Po’boys!

The first time I had a shrimp po’boy was in Louisiana visiting my now husbands family for the first time. There was actually a lot of firsts when it came to food on that trip, shrimp po’boys being one of them! Before trying it I kept thinking fried shrimp on bread sounded….interesting. Ross insisted it…

Vegan Mac & Cheese

I have always wanted to try making this. Whenever I see pictures of it online it always amazes how much it looks like cheese. I knew my biggest critic was going to be my husband and he really enjoyed this. Let’s be honest, it doesn’t taste exactly like mac & cheese. If you’re going into…

Blueberry Protein Donuts!

These are such a yummy treat. They are sweet, cakey, and the best texture. They also have the craziest macros EVER! {Macros listed at the end of the recipe, I will give you a hint they are under 100 calories}. These donuts are so easy. Trust me, I get very impatient when baking and if…

Jerk Chicken and Zucchini Quinoa

This is one of my favorite chicken recipes if not my favorite. The first time I had jerk chicken was on the side of the rode in Jamaica when I was 17 and I never forgot about it after that. This is my take on jerk chicken using a dry rub. Traditionally you are supposed…

Flank Steak, Broccoli & Mushroom Teriyaki Bowls

  My husbands favorite food is by far Asian food. If we are ever ordering in and I ask him what he wants I always know what he is going to say. This is super simple and is such a quick recipe. What you will need: 16oz flank steak Teriyaki sauce {I used low sodium…

Cashew Milk

My favorite non dairy milk is by far cashew milk. I do like almond milk but it has a very distinct almond flavor to me whereas the cashew milk does not. This is the easiest thing to do and tastes so much better than store bought in my opinion. Here is what you will need:…
