Sesame Ginger Glazed Green Beans

I developed these green beans specifically to go with my Slow Cooker Chinese 5 Spice Pulled Pork. But they're so fast and easy to make, as well as incredibly flavorful, they make a great side dish to so many Asian inspired dishes, (like my Slow Cooker Honey Lime Teriyaki Chicken). And you don't have to limit the sauce in this ... Read More

Slow Cooker Chinese 5 Spice Pulled Pork

This recipe is another result of trying to branch out more often with different spices. And I've been having so much fun creating new recipes with a twist. (I'll be sure and list some of the recipes I've been doing below.) Often the beginnings of a recipe come from necessity, meaning I have something in the fridge or freezer I ... Read More

Rosemary Sea Salt Roasted Almonds

These rosemary almonds started off as just something I was making for my Easy Cheese Board Date for 2. But they quickly took on a life of their own, so I made some space in the recipe calendar, so they could be their own recipe. Part of my job as a recipe developer is to make sure everything tastes the ... Read More

Chocolate Raspberry Cream Candy Cups

This recipe was inspired by a couple of things. The first one is Tyler's love of the classic chocolate raspberry combination, and the second is peanut butter cups of all things. Of course we both love peanut butter cups, (and you can find my homemade recipe in my Inspired Ice Creams e-book). But I wanted to use their shape as ... Read More

My Favorite Energizing Green Juice

I have a very 'on and off' relationship with juicing. I love green juice, and I really love how it makes me feel. But... I struggle to make time to actually juice. And I know I'm not alone in this because everyone I know feels the exact same way. Juicing sounds great and all, but really... it's hard to make ... Read More

Slow Cooker Honey Lime Teriyaki Chicken

It's no secret I love to cook. I'm the type of person who relaxes after a long day by spending time in the kitchen, I just find it ultimately soothing. However having said all that, there's days where cooking dinner is just one more thing to cross off the list that's adding stress to an over packed day. And it's ... Read More

Get the Glow Carrot Beet Juice

One of my 10 Intentional Habits for the New Year is to eat more veggies. There's always so much confusing diet advice being thrown around, and it's even worse at the beginning of a new year. But there's one thing everyone seems to agree on, and that's to eat more veggies. You simply can't go wrong with that formula! For ... Read More

Taco Sweet Potato Noodle Bowls

Sometimes it's fun to mix up the same flavors you're used to into a different dish altogether. We often make these Taco Sweet Potato Bowls I posted years ago, but lately I've been making this spiralized version of the same flavors. As an added bonus, it's also completely dairy free, and really easy to make. The American version of tacos ... Read More

Easy Homemade Taco Seasoning

When Tyler and I were first married, one of the only things he could cook was the American version of tacos. And let me tell you what, he definitely had some opinions on every step of the process. I actually couldn't stop laughing the first time I made tacos for dinner, and he was hovering over my shoulder giving me ... Read More
