Strawberry Mango Spinach Salad

I'm in full scale spring mode and I'm not looking back! This is in spite the fact that we're at least 1 month away from local produce yet, and there's still lingering snow around here! Luckily for us California is experiencing spring and sending it our way! In the meantime, I'm nose deep in the seed catalogs trying to figure ...

Paleo Pineapple Fried Rice

Do you ever make something out to be a big deal in your head, only to discover it was really nothing at all? I do this all the time from the usual things people dread to the smallest of tasks.

Picture creamy Greek Yogurt, topped with a homemade Triple Berry Sauce, with a sprinkling of Maple Cinnamon Granola and you'll see why I just can't get enough of these! ...

Zucchini Noodles Aglio and Olio

So... what do you make for dinner that's twice as fast as take-out? Why Spaghetti Aglio Olio of course - it's Italy's version of fast food. It's made with pantry staples, and can be made in mere minutes - sounds like perfection right? This version is a departure from the traditional dish because I've subbed the pasta with zucchini noodles ...
