Homemade Acai Bowls

Along with the handful of bases where we’ve been stationed, there’s also a corresponding food that will bring back fond memories of that assignment. Despite the glorious Southern food that we were surrounded with, our Valdosta food was Indian cuisine: soaked up with fresh naan and enjoyed with our close friends. Our Tucson food was…

Grain-free chocolate chip muffins

The nanas are here! (Pure joy. My heart couldn’t even handle how happy Liv was to see madre and nana.) Yesterday morning, Liv and I met up with Whitney and her little guy at the library for storytime. The downtown library is HUGE, and the bonus is that they have free 2-hour garage parking. Parking…

Eggplant Fries with a Creamy Yogurt Dressing

Ohhh friends, do I have a snack recipe for you. But first, I have to tell you about a new restaurant Liv and I went to check out last night. We were at Sprout’s across the street, and I realized that Native Foods had finally opened. I had no idea what they served, but knew…

Spicy Almond Dip

Thank you to those of you who have sent well wishes with the recent San Diego fires. Our house is fine for now, but I’m sending thoughts and prayers to everyone affected. You can see the smoke from the freeway, and it’s heartbreaking to hear of those who have had to evacuate their homes. Snack…

Banana split smoothie

Hi! Happy Wednesday to ya 🙂 How’s the day going so far? This week has already been a lot of fun. I took Livi to her yoga class and we planted some herbs in the garden. I might eat my words later, but I feel like you really have to work to kill plants here.…

Clean Eating Tuna Salad

This recipe is inspired by the tasting tiki hut at Trader Joe’s. I’m thankful that they manage to give me a quick little snack when the munchies hit, and they also tend remind me of things I love that have somehow fallen off the radar. Case in point: tuna salad. We were getting our weekly…

Hi guys! How’s your day going so far? Lately, boatloads of fruit have been consumed in our house. This is the best fruit salad and I’ve been making it fairly often for the past few weeks. Livi goes crazy for it, and it’s the same salad I took over to Whitney’s to celebrate Easter with her family. Hope…

Veg intimidation: make kale taste delicious

Last week we talked about artichokes. Today, let’s talk one of the world’s favorite (kinda stinky) greens: KALE! Kale is a nutrient-packed powerhouse and yields some fantastic dietary benefits including iron, Vitamin K, calcium, and an antioxidant boost. It’s funny to think that something I wasn’t crazy about at first attempt is now one of…

“The crunch” chopped salad with homemade Ranch dressing

I originally had a sweets recipe planned for today, but since I think we’re all still swimming in chocolate eggs from yesterday, how ’bout a salad to balance everything out? This is my latest salad fave and I will eat it until forever. By “forever” I mean until I burn myself out and am onto…

Veg Intimidation: How to Cook Artichokes

Imma bout to show you the way to my heart. Artichokes are one of the first foods that the Pilot and I would make to go along with our dinners. When we first started dating, money was tight so instead of going out to eat, we’d share an ahi tuna steak and cook two artichoke…
