Malted Chocolate Brownies 1

When we were kids, my mom used to tell my sister and I that I was born older. And I was secretly like duh, Mom, that’s obvious…I’m the older sister.

But as an adult, I get what she meant: I’m an old soul.

Grilled Zucchini with Quick Tomato-Olive Sauce and Feta Cheese

Grilled Zucchini with Quick Tomato-Olive Sauce and Feta Cheese 1

Bright Mediterranean flavors make this Grilled Zucchini with Quick Tomato-Olive Sauce and Feta Cheese a perfect summer side dish. Mike and I decided years ago that we just aren’t campers. Actually, it was after our first camping trip that we sort-of had an inkling that it just wasn’t our cup of tea, but after our second trip we outright swore off camping altogether. (It’s not the bugs, or the snakes, or even the uncomfortable bedding that gets me. What kills it for me is the fact that I can never just get clean, lol. Dirty feet and sticky fingers are the stuff my nightmares are […]...

Watermelon Salad with Sweet and Spicy Vinaigrette

Watermelon Salad with Sweet and Spicy Vinaigrette 1

Sweet and salty pair perfectly in this refreshing Watermelon Salad with Sweet and Spicy Vinaigrette! Growing up, our summertime meals consisted mostly of fresh veggies. Sweet grilled corn on the cob; sliced red tomatoes with my mom’s sweet creamy white dressing; zucchini sautéed with garlic, olive oil, and salt; steamed green beans with butter; bowls of leafy greens. It was bliss, all of it, and it’s no wonder that to this day my sister and I both prefer veggies over meat or junk food. (Thank you, Mom!)...

20-Minute Thai-Inspired Summer Vegetable Curry with Seared Salmon

20-Minute Summer Vegetable Curry with Seared Salmon 1

This 20-Minute Thai-Inspired Summer Vegetable Curry with Seared Salmon makes the perfect weeknight summer meal. It’s amazing how much technique effects the final outcome when you’re cooking. The mere thought of green beans made me gag as a kid until I had them for dinner at a friend’s house and realized they aren’t inherently mush. (Sorry, Mom…you were notorious for overcooking the beans!) I disliked fried eggs until I learned how to cook them so that the whites are set and the yolks are runny. (The only thing worse than chalky overcooked egg yolk is icky undercooked egg white goop…ugh.) And I thought I hated fish […]...

Grilled Chicken Salad with Corn, Peaches, Blue Cheese, and Balsamic-Honey Syrup

Grilled Chicken Salad with Corn, Peaches, Blue Cheese, and Balsamic-Honey Syrup 1

This Grilled Chicken Salad with Corn, Peaches, Blue Cheese, and Balsamic-Honey Syrup is full of summer flavors! Until about a year ago I was completely grill-lazy. Which was strange because I went through a grill-all-the-time phase where I wouldn’t even let my hubby touch the grill. (Ok, that’s a stretch…I insisted on being the primary griller, but far be it from me to completely stand between a man and his fire.)...

Peanut Butter and Jelly Loaf

Peanut Butter and Jelly Loaf 1

This Peanut Butter and Jelly Loaf has all the flavors of that nostalgic sandwich baked right in. With kiddos home from school for the summer, if your house is anything like mine was growing up, I bet your kitchen is seeing its fair share of PB&Js. Nothing is faster for parents to whip together…and nothing is easier for kids to grab and eat on the go while they head out the door for more play. (Because when you’re 9 and it’s summer, food is of secondary importance after spending time outside with your friends.)...

Cheesy Refried Bean Burritos

Cheesy Refried Bean Burritos 1

These Cheesy Refried Bean Burritos are a hit with kids and adults alike! And bonus, they come together fast and are freezer-friendly. When I dormed in college, my friends took it upon themselves to teach me how to cook their favorite meals. An Indian boy across the hall cooked me vegetable curry. My Italian friend would cook me her grandmother’s recipe for chicken with basil cream sauce. And my roommate’s specialty was refried bean and bell pepper burritos....

Cherry Chocolate Chip Coffee Popsicles {Paleo}

Cherry Chocolate Chip Coffee Popsicles 1

These paleo Cherry Chocolate Chip Coffee Popsicles are a great way to satisfy your summer cravings for a sweet treat to cool down with. I’m not even joking when I say I could live off cherries and nothing else during their teasingly short season. (Even despite all those warnings about the collywobbles my mom gave me growing up.) Collywobbles or not, a five pound bag of cherries never lasts long in my fridge....

Tangy Arugala Salad with Sumac (Salatat Jarjeer)

Tangy Arugala Salad with Sumac (Salatat Jarjeer) 1

Rocket lettuce is the star of this Tangy Arugala Salad with Sumac (Salatet Jarjeer) that I learned how to make in Kuwait! I’m not a long-time fan of peppery “rocket” lettuce. In fact, it’s only within the past couple years that I started to enjoy arugala. In Kuwait arugala is widespread, which isn’t surprising because arugala thrives in sandy soil. When Mike and I lived there, he had a habit of ordering from his favorite Persian restaurant (which was literally a two-minute walk from where we lived) about once a week. They always included a few bags full of arugula with our kebabs, and since […]...
