Crunchy Broccoli Salad with Creamy Dressing

Crunchy Broccoli Salad with Creamy Dressing

The first time I ever dyed my hair was freshman year in college. I’m naturally a dirty blonde (which I have always thought was quite an unfortunate term for hair color), and decided to go a little lighter. It was so ridiculously similar to my natural color, it wasn’t even worth the effort.

Cardamom Saffron Cake {Inspired by the Kuwaiti Cake Qors Oqaily}

Cardamom Saffron Cake

When Mike and I returned to the U.S. last July after spending a year in Kuwait, it was surprisingly unceremonious for us, which felt weird because spending a year there was definitely life-changing for me in so many ways.

Thai Pineapple Fried Cauliflower “Rice” with Chicken

Thai Pineapple Fried Cauliflower “Rice” with Chicken

There’s nothing better than a home-cooked meal in the middle of the day when you’re at work.

(It beats the heck out of a quickly thrown-together sandwich or fast food from the drive-thru any day!)

Smoky Braised Sausage and White Beans in Savory Peanut Sauce

Smoky Braised Sausage and White Beans in Savory Peanut Sauce

Until about a week ago, I thought we weren’t going to see much cold weather here.

And then last week hit with the full force of winter; high temps in the teens and about six inches of snow. (After our three previous “snowstorms” that produced less than an inch of accumulated snow each, I was about ready to throw a party to celebrate our snow! Or at least head outside and play in it.)

Hearty Garlic and Herb Mushroom Stew {Paleo and Vegan-Friendly}

Hearty Garlic and Herb Mushroom Stew

Even though I don’t usually share their sentiments, I can at least understand how some veggies fall into the “eww” category for some people…

Arugala Breakfast Salad with Stovetop Maple Nut Brittle and Blueberry Lemon Dressing

Arugala Breakfast Salad with Stovetop Maple Nut Brittle and Blueberry Lemon Dressing

I’m a big fan of breakfast for any meal of the day, but I’m weird about my eggs in the morning. I will eat any kind of egg except one with a runny yolk for breakfast, but as far as runny yolks go, all bets are off for lunch or dinner. So weird.

(Any other quirky breakfast eaters out there?)

Tomato-Basil Turkey Burgers with Garlicky Zucchini and Quinoa Recipe {Plus a Q&A with Denise Austin and a Giveaway of Her 10-Week Health and Fitness Plan}

Tomato-Basil Turkey Burgers with Garlicky Zucchini and Quinoa

For nearly everyone I know, February is their least favorite month (even my sis, and it’s her birthday month!).

By the time February rolls around, the excitement of starting a new year has worn off and so has the novelty of snow…and the need to constantly bundle up and chug soup to stay warm. Green grass, leafy trees, and color in general are still a long way off and everything just seems kind-of blah.

I’ve got something that’s full of excitement and energy to warm you up on a cold February day…how about a chat with Denise Austin, some fabulous fitness motivation, and her recipe for Tomato-Basil Turkey Burgers?

Oatmeal Golden Raisin Muffins with Cream Cheese Glaze {Vegan}

Oatmeal Golden Raisin Muffins with Cream Cheese Glaze {Vegan}

I make a ridiculous amount of muffins.

They’re the perfect thing when you want to use up a little bit of coconut milk or the last 1/4 cup of a few different kinds of nuts or dried fruit, or if you have an apple or banana that isn’t good for much else except baking.

Savory Camembert Turnovers with Honey-Roasted Turkey and Lingonberry Jam

Savory Camembert Turnovers with Honey-Roasted Turkey and Lingonberry Jam

There are a multitude of Korean cafés/bakeries where we live in Alexandria. In fact, it seems that nearly every non-chain coffee shop in the area is either straight-up Korean or Korean with a French twist.

At first, it took some getting used to. I mean, the coffee is good, really good, actually. And there’s the perk of having the option of bubble tea (which my niece can’t get enough of). The baked goods and pastries are decent too, but definitely interesting and somewhat surprising if you’re not used to them.

Brussels Sprout and Bacon Hash with Fried Egg {Paleo}

Brussels Sprout and Bacon Hash with Fried Egg

I share a lot of my meals on Instagram (I think it’s part of the whole you know you’re a food blogger when…), but so many never make it to the blog.
