Sweet Potato Noodle Salad with Roasted Corn

Simple spiralized sweet potatoes are mixed with fresh, roasted corn and a few greens, topped with a sweet and salty dressing. This will become your new summer staple for lunches all week long.

I am pretty darn excited about the fact that corn is back in season. I adore fresh corn, and I try to take advantage of it all summer long. Speaking of admiration for a vegetable, sweet potatoes are held dear to me as well. Luckily for me, I can enjoy those all year round in just about every shape and form. So, when I saw a salad that had both of my favorite vegetables, I had to give it…

A simple, but flavorful salad full of bright and fresh ingredients that will become your new favorite meal. A smooth peanut vinaigrette drizzled over baked chicken, rice noodles and fresh veggies will be your go-to salad this summer.

This Spring I have been really into the salads. Even though it has been a cold, wet spring, I have moved on past the comfort foods. I am so ready for the lighter meals full of fresh veggies and perhaps some chicken thrown in. I am super excited for fresh fruit again! I know the south is in strawberry season, but we won’t be until the end of June. I’ve only planted a few things in the garden that don’t mind the cold weather because anything else will shrivel and die. Kind of how I feel when there is rain day after day and it’s barely out of the 40’s. Good thing…

Chicken Shawarma Naan Salad with Sweet Potato Fries

Naan acts as a killer vessel for hummus, chicken, sweet potato fries, spinach, cucumbers, avocado, tomatoes, and feta cheese. A fantastic dinner, or great lunch. Incredibly satisfying and filling makes the time to cook and prep all worth it.

Chicken seems to my jam lately. I’m all into chicken dinners these days. It’s always been my favorite type of meat. And that’s coming from someone who could eat meat once a month and be happy. Since my husband is a huge meat person, I compromise as meal planner and do about half vegetarian and half meat meals throughout the week. That way…

This is a healthier version of butter chicken. Coconut milk makes it rich and creamy while cauliflower is subtly swapped for the chicken. This is an easy, satisfying weeknight meal that will please all at the table.

This dish is for all of those who are still in, what it may seem like, the the throes of winter. We got a big enough snow storm Monday to cancel school. And it has been spitting snow off and on for a few days this week. I know out west is getting hit hard. I feel you people! I find the snow to be beautiful, and I really don’t mind it a whole lot, but I am definitely ready to retire my…

Chicken Curry with Zucchini Noodles

Healthy, satisfying curry that is filled with fresh vegetables, zucchini noodles and chicken. Served with flatbread for a dipping vessel, and you have yourself the perfect weeknight meal. Quick and easy, this will satisfy any curry lover, or on the fence curry questionables.

Now that the weather is finally on the downward trend for cooler temperatures, I am diving headfirst into the comfort/cold weather foods. Soup is pretty much on the menu weekly, and the carb/meat dishes are making their way to the top. Hot cider is a regular, since it’s not quite time for hot chocolate. The viewing of the last of the colorful leaves is a daily enjoyment. And the time change is the real signal for the winter days to come. I don’t know about you..

Chicken Coconut Curry with Rice Noodles

Healthy, quick and satisfying, this curry is a great way to welcome fall with its warm flavors and end of summer veggies.

I don’t know about you all, but I live for the change of seasons. I love all seasons equally, but I get tired of them as they progress. So, I am always super happy when a new season comes rolling in. Living in New England, the season change can be very subtle, like soft butter spread over warm toast. It slowly slides in, with small temperature changes, summer blooms fade away, and the air begins to move from the heavy moisture to crisper, cleaner smells. Other times, the change of season is like bam! a rock just got thrown into a pond disturbing the ever-still water and causing a ripple effect. The temperatures drop drastically over night, causing...
