Light & Easy Avocado Dip

Light & Easy Avocado Dip

Earlier this week, I shared my recipe for Spicy Sesame Sweet Potato “Tots.” Every tot needs a sidekick, right? I call this avocado dip “light and easy” because it so easily complements just about any light summer dish that I’d be silly not to share the recipe with you. I’ve been making this exact dip […]

No bean hummus

Hummus is one of those foods. If left alone with a jar of homemade hummus and a spoon, I could easily down the whole thing faster than Usain Bolt can sprint. I may not be able to eat the pita bread anymore, but I can still eat the hummus and man am I grateful for […]

gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan corn salsa recipe

There are certain foods that I call SOO’s. Special Occasions Only. It means that they’re special treats to savor once in a while, but not every week. My SOO’s aren’t just chocolate or ice cream either. Sweet summer corn is one of my seasonal splurges that I enjoy once or twice a summer and that’s […]

Homemade Gluten-Free Horseradish

Up until last week, I couldn’t have told you what a root of horseradish looks like. I’ve been shopping at the same Whole Foods for over 10 years, averaging at least one trip per week, and I’ve probably walked by the basket of horseradish roots over a thousand times. It wasn’t until we got slammed […]

Creamy Onion Dill Dressing

People are often surprised to know that I basically eat the same foods over and over again, just in different arrangements. I generally stick to a diet of vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, healthy fats and oils, and some complex carbs every once in a while. To me, this framework offers plenty of room for creativity […]

Have you heard of Eat Like a Dinosaur, the brand new cookbook by Matt and Stacy of Paleo Parents? My advanced copy came in the mail last week and I’ve been browsing through it ever since. The colorful, kid-friendly pages of Eat Like a Dinosaur almost land it in the storybook category, which is something […]

Spiced Pear & Cranberry Relish

Every Thanksgiving table would be incomplete without a dish of ruby red cranberry sauce or relish to grace it. Last year, I shared a recipe (that I still love) for Cranberry Pear Sauce. It’s delicious spooned over turkey, casseroles, or other hearty dishes any time during the fall and winter. But if you want something […]

Welcome, November! I’m sorry to say that October whizzed by with Superwoman speed, but that hasn’t stopped me from enjoying the gorgeous fall weather, seasonal foods, and pumpkin-laden farmers’ markets. Before the new month evaporates in a flurry of book events, holiday hustle and bustle, and fun cooking classes, it’s high time I post another hummus […]
