Sriracha Cauliflower Fried Rice

We make fried rice fairly often because it's a fantastic way to use up little bits of leftovers in the fridge. Sometimes I use cauliflower for a veggie packed version, but sometimes I use cold leftover cooked rice when I'm really craving carbs. Either way you make it, fried rice is both delicious and budget friendly, (and I need all ...

Tropical Spinach Salad with Creamy Coconut Lime Dressing

I'm really quite predictable with my seasonal cravings. With every fall that arrives I'm overly enthusiastic about all things apple and of course sweet potatoes. But as the months wear on into winter I start longing for the summer produce again. I know there's things in season for a lot of people, but from where I'm sitting, the world outside ...

Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins

I'm becoming more and more of a savory person over time, but sometimes I still really crave sweet baked goods for breakfast. Luckily these cravings usually strike on the weekend when I have a little more time to bake! I've had this idea in my head for a while, but I just haven't gotten around to it with a super ...

Asian Sweet and Sour Cucumber Salad

I had the best lunch last week at a local Thai place that serves incredibly flavorful food. It was one of those meals that you just keep thinking about, and I knew I was going to need to recreate what I had to share with you too. So the thinking about lunch turned into an obsession, and I cancelled the ...

Molasses Ginger Cookie Energy Bites

My favorite cookie of all time is my Grandpa's Molasses Ginger Cookies which I made into a gluten free version last year. They're highly addictive, and so good that I don't make them too often because I lack a little thing called 'willpower'! So I thought it might be fun to take the same flavors of this classic cookie, and ...

Gooey Cranberry Orange Skillet Cookie

It's the perfect time of year for all things gooey and decadent. I've been testing out lots of deliciously sweet things lately, and my friends and family are loving the recipe testing right now! The recipe for this Gooey Cranberry Orange Skillet Cookie started off with white chocolate chunks. But after doing some testing, I found that chocolate chips were preferred ...

Apple Pie Skillet Cake

This time of year is perfection with the last of of season ripe tomatoes, and the fall fruit in full swing! I like having vine-ripened tomatoes and apples in the same week - it gives you the sense of having your cake and eating it too. (Although I'll have to say, I'm definitely hoarding the last of my garden tomatoes.) And...speaking ...

Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites

Energy bites are one of my favorite things to have around because they're awesome as a snack on a mountain top in Glacier National Park. Or they're equally good in the car on the way from one appointment to another when I just don't think I can make it until dinner time. On one of my recent grocery trips, I ...

Creamy Spaghetti Squash Florentine

The word Florentine pretty much just means some kind of dish with lots of creamy spinach in it. Everybody has a different way of making the classics, but for me it all started with an Eggs Florentine dish that I've made so often I can make it in my sleep. First there's a bed of spinach with a creamy bechamel, ...
