Nicoise Salmon Salad

You may have read in my previous postĀ that I had an amazing salad experience a few weeks ago at the Nordstrom Cafe. Don’t worry, this is the last you’ll be hearing of it. šŸ™‚ It was just such a fun surprise to feel so passionately about a salad. I like salad but I don’tĀ loveĀ it, which…

Salmon Chowder

There’s no feeling quite like curling up with a warm bowl of creamy soup on a cold evening. Plus, if you haven’t noticed, I am a huge fan of salmon. It’s one of my 5 major food groups, along with candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup.Ā Name that movie! That’s why I am so excited…

Sopa de Pollo Verde

Whenever I’m eating something that I truly enjoy, apparently I do a “happy food dance.” I’ll take a bite of my food and kinda shake my hips and do a little shimmy in my chair. Its funny because most of the time I don’t even realize I’m doing it until someone else points it out…

Caprese Salad, 3 Ways

Anyone who knows me knows that IĀ loveĀ caprese salad. It’s my go-to dish whenever I need to pack a simple lunch, bring a side dish to a party, or simply when it’s too hot in my tiny apartment to justify turning on the oven/stoveĀ for dinner. I love it because it’s so easy to make and so…

Greek Salad with Spiralized Cucumbers

Since this is my second spiralizer recipe in a week, I must admit I’m a bit addicted. I go through phases where I don’t use it for a month, then use it every day for aĀ week. There’s no in-between! This time, I decided to re-vamp one of my all time favorite salads, the deliciousĀ Greek Salad….

Brazilian Shrimp Soup

These past few weeks have slowly begun to look like spring. The trees are blossoming with little pink flowers, there’s usually around an hour of sunlight per day (followed by 9 hours of misty rain…it’s still Seattle), and the daylight lasts a little longer into the evening. It’s got me excited for the upcoming warmer…

Homemade Chicken Broth

Bone broths are a goldmine of healing properties: Gut healing – Bone broths are rich in gelatin, which seals up holes in your digestive tract (ulcers, holes in your intestines, leaky gut syndrome). Additionally, they contain the amino acid L-glutamine, which specifically reduces gut inflammation. Bone broths also normalize stomach acid, which is helpful for…

Spring Greens and Citrus Salad

I first had a salad similar to this one at one of my favorite restaurants, and was unsure how I would feel about the unique combination of toppings. I have never been a fruit-in-salad kind of person…until I had this. It may sound like a weird recipe to those of you who, like me, are…

Clam Chowder

It is almost criminal to live in Seattle and not like clam chowder. I love how the warm and flavorful soup makes me feel on a rainy day. I had always expected clam chowder to be difficult to make, so I just went to restaurants whenever I had a craving, which was often. It was…

Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

I have a deep love for Greek food, and this is probably my all time favorite recipe. I am so excited to share it! I make it year round, even when it’s too hot outside to be typical soup weather. The rich lemon flavor makes it just as refreshing on a hot day as it…

Seasonal Autumn Salad

I was kind of late getting onboard the kale train. I read about it online and knew that it was supposed to be some magical wonder food, but I had heard from a few friends that it was tough to chew and tasted bitter. After months of curiosity, I finally bought a large bag of…
