Let’s Talk Kabobs

Do the prospects of what you can make from dinner leftovers ever really excite you? Like almost more than the actual dinner itself? Welllll they do for me <obviously>🤣 Kabobs are one of my absolute favorite spring/summer things to make. They’re just fun, colorful, versatile and can be used in endless ways for leftovers. Like…

Hearty Steak and Kale Salad

So there I was <again> at lunch time. Staring a whole bunch of steak and veggie leftovers from Kabob night in my fridge. I didn’t just want to eat them plain. I wanted a salad. But not just any salad. A nice and hearty one. With hearty greens and a thick, yet nutritive dressing. And…

No Bake Cookie Makeover

Ok. Do y’all remember those cookies you made with your mom over the stove and they didn’t require baking and it totally blew your mind? Or at least it blew my mind. They were so GOOD! Chocolate (y), Peanut Butter(y) and melt in your mouth(y). So many fond memories. I decided to make them with…

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…

Black Bean Pumpkin Plantain Enchiladas

It’s a mouthful of deliciousness. A little spicy. A little savory. A little sweet. A little creamy. A little Tex-Mex. A lotta Delicious. This is most definitely Minimalist Baker inspired! I had made her Black Bean Plantain enchiladas and absolutely fell in love! So I set out to make them again and had zero cashews…

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…

Carrot Top Pesto

No, it doesn’t have red hair, it’s literally made of the green fronds atop a carrot bunch. Or maybe the bottoms depending on how you look at it… Spent a nice spring afternoon touring the Farm at Stone Barns with the kiddos and was blown away by what they are doing there! Farmers, agriculturalists and…

Coconut Flour Shortbread Date Caramel Twix Bars

Annnnd then I snapped my fingers and POOF. Turned these ingredients: Into… Twix Bars! Well maybe it wasn’t THAT easy, but it wasn’t bad I promise. Seems daunting. First shortbread. Then a caramel. And THEN a chocolate topping. Uughhh. But it goes by quick. And you can multi task. Like while the shortbread is baking,…

“The Collard is the New Tortilla”… Burrito

I’m tellin ya. It’s true. Found these enormous fresh Collards at the Farmers Market and immediately thought “burritos!” Weird, I know, but I’m weird so it makes sense. I didn’t actually even make these burritos for dinner. I stuffed them full of other leftovers and ate on them throughout the week. They are these perfect…

Sourdough Adventures

Best advice. Just start. Sourdough is an intimidating thing and if you start thinking about and listing all the steps in your head, you won’t do it. It’s a lot, but it’s worth it and you can do most steps while you’re doing other things. There’s a lot of passive time. You either have to…
