My mother initially told me to make this salad to serve alongside the Caramelized Onion and Gruyere Quiche I was making for brunch. The acid from the tomatoes and balsamic paired perfectly with the rich and creamy quiche. Love at first sight.   This salad is extremely easy and goes really well as a side dish with …

This week, Sunday night dinner needed to be easy, healthy and FAST! The Cheese and I had a crazy weekend and we needed something quick that was going to fill us up but also make us feel better about all the craft beer we drank. To be totally honest, I kind of threw this together. …

It’s late summer and okra is in season! This classic southern side dish is so hearty and delicious, I eat it all by itself spooned over some brown rice.

This recipe is a serious favorite around the house. The best part about these meatballs is that they can be used in so many different ways. For this recipe, I did meatballs with tomato sauce over zoodles.  But, you can use any sauce or any base. This recipe makes A LOT. You can easily have leftovers …

This is a delicious and healthy alternative to chicken salad. The goat cheese and Greek yogurt give the pesto a tangy lift and add so much flavor to the chicken. This is so easy to make, and the leftovers are perfect over a salad! Nom. Nom. Nom. Ingredients: 2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (I used …
