Sous Vide Curried Eggplant

Sous Vide Curried Eggplant

Any eggplant lovers out there? I’m a big fan of eggplant in Asian and Italian dishes, but rarely make the effort to cook it at home. Eggplant can be spongy and bitter if it’s not cooked correctly, but the sous vide makes perfect eggplant effortless! Using both […]

Gorgonzola Steak Bites

Gorgonzola Steak Bites

Last weekend we went to a wedding that was the most beautiful, joyous celebration of love. This also happened to be my soul sister’s wedding, on my birthday, to a truly wonderful man – so it really couldn’t have been a more perfect day. Their […]

Garlic Ginger Chili Oil

Garlic Ginger Chili Oil

Spoiler alert: homemade hot sauces are incredibly easy! Toasted sesame and fried garlic give a deep, nutty richness to this super-spicy oil. I call this an everything sauce because it goes on breakfast, lunch, and dinner – from eggs to spaghetti to salad dressing. It’s […]

Steamed Artichokes with Creamy Garlic Butter

Steamed Artichokes with Creamy Garlic Butter

Artichokes have to be the most intimidating, least intuitive veggie for a first-time attempt. They take a little work to eat, but that’s somehow part of their weird charm – you have to earn the sweet, tender heart at the center. These prickly little guys […]

Jalapeño Popper Spaghetti Squash

Jalapeño Popper Spaghetti Squash

We’ve been loading spaghetti squash up with everything for easy low-carb dinners lately, so I had to share one of my favorites! Diced jalapeños for flavor and heat, crispy salty bacon bits, and (most importantly) three types of cheese make this creamy and so satisfying. I […]

They’re […]

Favorite Everyday Guacamole

Favorite Everyday Guacamole

Finally sharing my most-requested recipe! This is a straightforward, easy recipe for crowd-pleasing guacamole that is always the first to disappear at a party. In my not-so-humble opinion, great guacamole is all about three major flavors: Lime juice. Cilantro. Salt. Lots of salt. If your […]

Loaded Chorizo Cornmeal Pancakes

Happy May!! Colorado celebrated with nearly a foot of snow this weekend, so while most of you are all about smoothie bowls & iced tea I’m still thinking hot, rich comfort food. These loaded Mexican-flavor pancakes definitely do the trick – ultra-savory and topped with […]

Lazy wonton soup: for when you don’t want to spend money on takeout, but you don’t want to spend time making dumplings. Wonton-filling meatballs and wonton wrapper noodles is the easy solution! These little meatballs taste just like my favorite takeout Chinese, so good that I […]

Chocolate Stuffed Raspberries

Chocolate Stuffed Raspberries

Okay, let’s start by acknowledging that this is definitely not a recipe. This is a silly-simple, scary-addictive snack that can stand on its own or blend perfectly on a cheese platter. Sometimes it’s nice to have a small bowl of delicious poppable bites, whether it’s […]
