I love turnips. The root and the greens sautéed together with garlic is one of my favorite things in the whole world. Generally, turnip greens are cooked with lots of fatty bacon, which is delicious, don’t get me wrong, but turnips and turnip greens are so rich in vitamins and minerals, it’s not worth adding …

Have I mentioned it’s fall? Because it is. So, bring on the squash!  For a perfect light fall dinner, or appetizer, just imagine tangy basil pesto spread between layers of tender squash and topped with warm, roasty toasty tomatoes, garlic and a sprinkling of pine nuts. Now stop imagining and make this! It was so …

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 …

Easiest. Dish. Eva. I made an impromptu dish tonight for The Cheese and I to snack on while we waited for chicken meatballs to bake in the oven. The options were: 1) eat our hands; or 2) make something to snack on. I went with option two. I had a bunch of snap peas leftover …

Grilled Carrots and Zucchini! If this doesn’t scream summer I don’t know what does. The Cheese and I had this tonight with Mediterranean Marinated Chicken. While I love roasting veggies, grilled carrots and zucchini develop this charred, robust flavor on the grill. The Cheese was saying that they almost have a meaty element to them. Anyways, …

Cherry tomatoes and corn are two of my favorite things to grill in the summer. Both veggies are at their peak and grilling them truly brings out the maximum flavor you can get from these two. Scroll down for deliciousness… Corn:  Ingredients: Corn (1 per person) Directions: Soak your corn in the husks for at …

Hey Y’all! Tonight with my Chicken with Maple Mustard Sauce i’m making some roasted veggies as a side. This is a GREAT way to use up vegetables in the fridge before they just sit there and go bad. This recipe is done with carrots and cabbage (because that’s what I had leftover) but you can literally …
Zucchini Lasagna
This recipe is really easy to assemble, and is a MUCH healthier version of your normal lasagna recipe. Note – Let this lasagna cool for a while before cutting into it. In fact, I like to make it in the afternoon and then stick it in the fridge so that it cools completely and sets …

This is a quick and delicious dinner that is super low carb, if you’re into that. It’s just a healthier, vamped up version of the regular thang thang. This could TOTALLY be a vegetarian dinner but my hubby, Colby (aka The Cheese) needs some chicken sausage with his #zoodles cause the word vegetarian really scares …
