Salmon with Garlic Dijon Sauce

I never would have thought to pair mustard and salmon together, but when my boyfriend came to me with this recipe and insisted we try it, I decided to give it a shot. I honestly didn’t even think I’d like it, since the flavor combo just seemed odd. Much to my excitement, it was the…

Roasted Salsa Verde

Every once in a while, I’ll get a craving that won’t subside no matter how long I attempt to wait it out. This week, that craving was tacos. Since tacos are always boring without salsa, I decided to try to make my own (for the first time!) and it was probably the greatest decision I’ve…

Goat Cheese, Kale, and Mushroom Alfredo

Sometimes you just need a big bowl of creamy, cheese-covered pasta. So I threw some kale in it to soak the bad things up. That’s how it works, right? Ingredients 3 tablespoons of butter 3 tablespoons of minced garlic 16 ounces of sliced mushrooms 2 teaspoons each of chopped basil oregano parsley thyme 2 handfuls…

AvoTacos

I’m so excited to be sharing one of my favorite meals! This one is less of a recipe, since the toppings should vary based on your own personal taste. I will be sharing my own AvoTaco formula, but this can easily be adapted to fit everyone’s dietary preferences. I don’t know about you, but my…

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…

Where Gluten Hides

When I was 18 and first diagnosed with “gluten sensitivity” (we didn’t know at the time that it was Celiac), I figured that gluten would be fairly easy to avoid. I just can’t eat bread, cookies, cake, or pie right? Boy was I wrong. Gluten is everywhere, and although some items are obvious gluten harborers,…

Avocado and Dill Zoodles with Shrimp

I’m always on the lookout for creative zoodle recipes, since they are so good for you and actually pretty filling. This one was fantastic because the sauce didn’t even have to be cooked! All that needs to be cooked is the shrimp, and I prefer to sauté the zoodles too since it softens them a…

Mashed Butternut Squash

Butternut squash has all kinds of health benefits, including a high concentration of potassium and vitamin B6, which supports the immune system and nervous system. I have a deep love for potatoes in all forms .This recipe is a less starchy (and more colorful) side dish that can be used to replace mashed potatoes and…

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…

Sweet ‘n Spicy Pecans

Looking for a fun and unique Valentine’s Day treat? This roasted pecan recipe is the perfect way to show your special someone that you care. You can divide them into little goody bags like this for a fun gift for your coworkers, send a care package to your BFF, or munch on them with your…

Pizza Zoodles

I always forget how ridiculously easy zucchini noodles (AKA “zoodles”) are to make. It seems like it should be a ton of extra work compared with regular pasta, but as long as you have a good spiralizer they take pretty much half the time! And they are also significantly better for you, which is always…

Chicken Piccata

Flavorful. Creamy. Rich. Savory. Heavenly. In case you can’t tell, I really liked this recipe. It took a bit more work than I typically will put into a meal, but it’s perfect for a weekend day, when you can just relax and spend some time enjoying the whole process. I always like to blast some…
