I added more “pizza toppings” this time for more flavor and a pop of color. These healthy…   Read More»


Sweet Potato and Tomato Pasta

Sometimes I’m just in the mood for something different. Something I’ve never had before. That happened to be a few weeks ago, a day where I didn’t feel like being in the kitchen for hours and was feeling super sad about letting go of my foster dog Lenka.

Baked Eggplant Parmesan

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Am I late to the party on this one? I feel like cauliflower crust was “sooo 2013” in the foodie world but either way, I’d never made it because I didn’t actually believe it would work, or that it would be as delicious as it is. On our recent vacation to Washington state, Will and I…   Read More»

Zucchini Linguini

When I told my recipe taster (or boyfriend, same thing) that we were having Zucchini Linguini, he assumed I meant linguini noodles with some zucchini cut up and mixed with the pasta.
