Italian Sausage-Chicken Soup

I love soup during all seasons. There’s just something about having a comforting bowl full of broth, seasonal produce and some kind of protein. Aside from the fact that soup tastes good and is good for you, it’s incredibly easy to make! All you need is some quality ingredients and you’ll be on your way…

Bhindi Masala (Curried Okra)

I would say this Bhindi Masala (curried okra) turned out to be a successful experiment! After having it a couple of weeks ago at an Indian restaurant, I thought I’d try making it at home using good oils and all organic ingredients. The final product was delicious- however, it didn’t taste quite the same as…

Chicken Tikka Masala

I recently had dinner at an Indian restaurant and it was fantastic! I enjoyed it so much that I thought I’d recreate a couple of my favorite dishes. I didn’t order Chicken Tikka Masala at the restaurant, so I knew I had to make it. Let me tell you, it didn’t disappoint! We enjoyed it…

Denver Frittata

This Denver Frittata is a rendition of my favorite omelette…the Denver omelette! When making breakfast or brunch for my family, it’s much easier to whip up a frittata than it is to make individualized omelettes. You can even make it the night before to keep things even simpler. This also makes a great breakfast for…

Cauliflower Rice Tabbouleh

Traditionally made with bulgur wheat, this Cauliflower Rice Tabbouleh is a healthier gluten-free version that still packs the same flavor punch as the original. This salad is bright and fresh and takes very little time to make, but it greatly benefits from sitting in the fridge for a few short hours that allow all the…

Tzatziki

This Tzatziki is a delicious sauce for grilled meats, a dip for fresh veggies and even a salad dressing. When choosing which yogurt to use, please be sure to only purchase a brand that is made with organic, grass-fed, full-fat dairy. Low/non-fat dairy is often times loaded with sugar and other unnecessary ingredients to make up…

Lamb Kofta Meatballs

These Lamb Kofta Meatballs are one of my favorite ways to prepare lamb. It’s a really simple recipe and takes hardly any time to whip up. You can also recruit the little ones (if there are any around) to help roll the meat into balls once it’s time. The extra help is always nice and…

Cherry-Lime Smoothie

One of my favorite things about the seasons changing is having a new produce selection! As the weather warms up, I can’t help but take advantage of the fresh fruit in season. Smoothies are a quick and refreshing snack, especially when you’re on the go. This recipe for my Cherry-Lime Smoothie reminds me of the…
