If you’re going to eat candy this Halloween

Happy Halloween! Whether you’re taking little ones out trick or treating, headed to a party, or staying home and passing out candy (or staying home and keeping the lights off– no judgement, I’ve done it) I hope you have an enjoyable evening. My little family and I are headed out to a party this evening,Continue Reading

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Protein Ice Cream

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Protein Ice Cream

As I’ve said before, I’m a huge fan of real desserts, and rarely try to make “healthier” alternatives if they aren’t likely to taste as good or be satisfying. But this is one of those that tastes as good, or even better than the real thing, so I had to share. I’ve noticed that I’mContinue Reading

Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut Squash Soup

I just can’t get enough of butternut squash in the fall. It’s an obsession. One of my favorite butternut squash recipes is this amazing soup. It’s like heaven in a bowl. Creamy, sweet, comfort food for sure.  And what’s even better than heaven in a bowl? Heaven in a bowl that is easy and quickContinue Reading

Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie

Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie

Once the weather starts getting cold, I’m as big of a pumpkin fan as the next guy (gal) out there, and this quick and yummy smoothie makes me so excited that its pumpkin time. And just like carrots, the bright orange color lets you know they’re high in antioxidants and vitamin A… except, I’m notContinue Reading

Roasted Chicken Thighs with Butternut Squash and Red Potatoes

Roasted Chicken Thighs with Butternut Squash and Red Potatoes

I wasn’t planning on posting this recipe. In fact, I wasn’t even planning on making this meal. Ok, let’s be honest, I haven’t planned a thing in the past week. Normally I’m very organized about my cooking and meals: every Saturday I plan what I’m going to cook, what I’m going to make for myContinue Reading

Hatch Chili Chicken Stew

Hatch Chili Chicken Stew

If you live anywhere close to the southwestern part of the United States, then you probably understand the hype about hatch chili season. Every fall, the chili peppers start showing up on farmstands and in CSA baskets. I got a bunch myself last week and was super excited to make my favorite enchilada stuffed chiliContinue Reading

Ginger Miso Salmon

Ginger Miso Salmon

Not to brag, but I’m pretty sure I’ve perfected the art of cooking salmon. It goes something like this: heat a cast iron skillet under the broiler until it is hot, add the seasoned salmon skin side down, and allow to cook for 10 minutes under the broiler. The result is a flaky, juicy, yetContinue Reading

Chili Lime Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Chili Lime Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Wait wait. Stop for a second. Can you feel it? In the air? FALL IS COMING! I don’t know why I love fall so much. I love spring and summer too–and I tolerate winter– but there’s something about the September air that gets me excited. Maybe it’s college football season (my husband and I wentContinue Reading

Oat Bran Chicken Parmesan

Oat Bran Chicken Parmesan

I’ve been struggling a little with what to name this recipe. I considered “Lower Carb Chicken Parmesan,” “Higher Fiber Chicken Parmesan”, but neither really appeals to me, since I rarely make food choices based on the carb/fiber content of the meal alone. “No Breadcrumb Chicken Parmesan” would work, but that just sounds soggy to me,Continue Reading

BLT+E Salad

BLT+E Salad

I’m proud to say I’m over my salad slump. It’s true. For a while I was struggling with salads because they were all the same, and I was bored. But ever since I decided to try some new and creative salad combinations, I’ve been on a roll. Here’s another one that takes one of myContinue Reading
