Quadrant Wrap Snack Ideas

I honestly don’t know who came up with this quadrant wrap/tortilla trend thing, but they were genius! It’s so fun, flavorful and convenient. The 4 spaces keeps it from getting to involved and complicated by adding too many things. I am notorious for “layering on flavors” until I’ve layered entirely too many flavors and what…

Bell Pepper Sandwich

Aka, the Idiot Sandwich, according to Gordon Ramsay. I don’t know though. He may have mis-judged this one, in terms of its potential. Have you ever had a sandwich made with a bell pepper as the bread? I discovered it when I saw Gordon Ramsay’s hilarious video where he ridicules a woman for making one,…

Pizza Ideas

Who doesn’t love a good pizza?! I know I certainly do! That being said, pizza can be a little tough sometimes. I feel like we get pigeon holed into thinking it was something that has to be ordered, and is only good when it’s loaded with tons of cheese, high sugar sauce and sausage. At…

Kale, Fennel and Plantain Salad

Have you ever added sauteèd plantains to your salad?! Neither had I until I read about it in this issue of Bon Apetit. And then found this amazing Collard, Fennel salad with Plantians and Sumac from Chef Ashleigh Shanti from a restaurant called Benne on Eagle in Asheville, NC. I didn’t have all the ingredients,…

Easy Crustless Roast Vegetable Quiche

So. We have this moms group here. Made up of many of the moms in my daughters Pre-K class. I absolutely adore all of them and truly cherish spending time with them. You can count on them for anything and they are always willing to help if you ever need it or find yourself in…

Spring Rolls!

So it’s finally feeling spring(y) up here in the Hudson River Valley of NY, so I decided I should probably make some Spring Rolls! My husband also loves them and I had been BOMBING on dinner and figured I should probably redeem myself. Sometimes my blog fails I try and disguise my food blog fails…

Cilantro Lime Cauli Rice Burrito

Definitely Chipotle inspired. Their lime cilantro rice is actually everything. I was craving a burrito and Chipotle is easily a 35min drive+parking nightmare for me. So I improvised. I had also riced a TON of cauliflower so I thought I’d put it to good use. One cauliflower yields a TON of cauli rice FYI. It’s…

Sweet N Spicy Roasted Eggplant Sandie

I used to detest Eggplant. I thought it was slimy and bitter and seedy. But eggplant is kind of like okra, you just gotta show it a little love, treat her kindly and cook her right! Then it’ll B-L-O-W your mind and the possibilities for it are endless. These days I ALWAYS either have a…

Ginger Lemon Tahini Dressing

This dressing deserves its own post… I had it hidden away here, but it bothered me. It’s just too good to stay buried! Trust me. It needed its own post. It needs to be put in/on errrythang, not just 1 thing!! So here it is. I’m guilty of eating this by the spoonful(s) Ingredients: 1/4c…

Collard Turkey Wraps with Herbacious Tahini “Cole Slaw”

I got this idea from the 21 Day Keto Reset as well. I never thought of using Collards as a wrap before until I bought one at Whole Foods made by Eat Gud Whole Foods. I became obsessed with making a delicious lemony tahini dressing and making a delicious collard wrap. So this is a…
