Dinner recipes

The best vegan sushi

Whenever I see the fam, I can expect the usual shenanigans. Food and laughter are the main components, with lots of stories, random games, spontaneously passing out on the couch from a food coma, and then repeating. I can also expect that my Uncle E will share some amazing cooking tips or a new recipe…

Hemp and almond crusted chicken with honey Dijon dressing

Hi! Hope you’re having an awesome hump day. Thank you for your insightful comments on this morning’s post. I’ve enjoyed reading all of them and love the discussion that’s been going on today. Thank you! <3 This morning Liv and I ran a couple of errands and ended up at Tiki Port. I’ve drastically reduced…

Sur La Table dinner at home

Nothing like a Tuesday night fancypants (yet easy!) dinner after a hot barre class. (Hot barre! Not to be confused with the Whole Foods meal, but equally delicious and a rare form of workout torture/triumph.) Ok, and wine too 🙂 Even though it was a little lonely preparing this meal by myself instead of with…

Spring roasted vegetable risotto

This post is brought to you by Blue Diamond Almond Breeze (aka my favorite almond milk). I’m working with them to create monthly recipes on the blog, and am planning to do only vegetarian recipes. You can check out last month’s vegan banana pudding here! Risotto is one of those things you can file under…

Easy grilled pizza

One of the things I quickly realized during our last (first!) Italy vacation was the beauty of food’s simplicity. Quality ingredients can go a loooong way, and don’t need to be bogged down with superfluous oils and seasonings. If you use fresh ingredients, the natural taste of the food can truly shine. I learned a…

Homemade enchilada sauce

Enchiladas are the beautiful type of meal that is hard to mess up. This is why they’re a gem for cooking newbies; just wrap something in a tortilla, cover it with sauce and cheese, and bake it. It will be delicious. It’s kind of like a stir fry: you add whatever you want, and somehow,…

Warm tempeh salad with mustard vinaigrette

Hi friends! How’s your morning going? Thank you so much to those of you have entered the giveaway. Keep ’em coming! Bella has been itching to do something fun -I can tell when she gets cabin fever- so Livi and I took her to the dog park. It was absolutely beautiful -mid 60s!- and there…

The Best Pasta Salad You Will Ever Have in Your Entire Life

It’s a bold statement, but this truly is the best pasta salad ever. We went to our little cousin’s birthday party last weekend, and while it was a blast to hang out with the fam, swim with Livi and hear her sing “Happy Birthday,” the star of my heart was a pasta salad. Not just any…

Healthy and hearty chili

Ok, not really… it’s still shorts and tank weather. But it’s always a good day for a huge bowl of chili and chips. Yesterday afternoon, Livi and I didn’t have anything going on, and I figured the weather was too nice to stay inside. We called Kyle and Meg to see what they were up…

Polenta Pesto Lasagna

I’m not sure what happened to me this week, but I’ve been extra inspired to try out new recipes. Sometimes I don’t post any recipes because I’ve been living off salad beasts and egg burritos, other times, I have so much I want to cook and share! This is one of those times, so I’m…

PRO Meals: Salmon Cakes

Happy Monday! Anything exciting happening this week? I’m not sure what we’re up to today, but the weather’s been gorgeous so I’ll probably see if some friends want to meet up at the splash pad or zoo. I do know that we’re having these salmon cakes for lunch, though. Recipe to follow! Around the House I’m kind of…

PRO meals: Salmon in parchment with asparagus and basil

I’m getting waryyyy too comfortable with our Trader Joe’s routine. I put Livi in the baby carrier (the BabyHawk or Ergo), grab a cart, and blitz through the store, often in 15 minutes max. It has to be fast and furious, because Livi loves to snack her way through Trader Joe’s and I try to…
