Sweet Potato Hash with Sunny Side Up Egg

After nearly a year of seeing various friends post on social media about their experience with the Whole30 program, I finally decided to commit to it myself. This past Sunday was Day 1 for me and so my recipe posts for the next month will be Whole30 compliant. Currently on Day 3, my cravings haven’t…

Leftover Crunchy Green Beans with Sunny Side Up Egg

What’s one of the easiest ways to use up leftover vegetables from last night’s dinner? Brunch of course! That’s exactly what I decided to do with the leftover Crunchy Green Beans I had on hand. They were delicious and paired scrumptiously with a Sunny Side Up Egg. Quick, easy, light but filling. My perfect kinda…

Bunless Turkey Burgers with Crunchy Green Beans

I absolutely love turkey, but ground turkey is a little difficult to work with. It’s sticky, you can’t over mix it, and it’s extremely lean. Therefore, it can easily be rendered rubbery and tough. Thus far, I’ve braised turkey meatballs to keep them moist and tender, slowly stewed it with tomatoes for spaghetti sauce, and…

Sweet Potato Lentil Stew with Wild Rice

Wild rice is still a somewhat new ingredient I’m experimenting with, and as noticeable in the photo I’m still working on preventing the black rice from darkening my dishes.

Kadai Style Paneer

My slow cooker and I have developed a very close relationship over the past year and in fact, I’m not sure how I ever lived without her. Normally when we’re in the mood for the aromatically sassy and seductively spicy flavors of India, I create a one skillet dish that we reheat for lunches at…

Sandwich Rye

My first attempt baking bread on my own has successfully motivated me to continue practicing. I actually enjoyed the hours spent anticipating whether the bread was gonna take me down to happy sandwich town or make me angry cry. My usual affirmation is: leave the baking to the wifey. She enjoys it after all and…

Veggie Pizza

For as long as I can remember I have absolutely loathed green bell peppers. For years I couldn’t even stand the smell of them. The unripe fruit has been vehemently rejected from my slices of supreme pizza and left unapologetically limp and lifeless on the side of my restaurant plates. I’ve long held the opinion…

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Pepitas

For two seasons now, I’ve been trying my hand at edible landscaping. The path leading from my driveway to my front porch is a steady incline with several flower beds cascading between the walkway and my home. Our property was vacant for about a year before we moved in and the landscaping shows it. Plus…
