10+ Chocolatey Valentine's Day Desserts For You and Your Sweetie

I’m not sure where it started, but there seems to be an unwritten rule that Valentine’s Day dessert requires chocolate. I might not understand its origin, but you’ll hear no argument from me! Why look a gift horse in the mouth, right? Because any excuse to eat chocolate (legit or otherwise) is welcome, lol.

Cheesy Scalloped Cabbage Casserole {Gluten-Free; Lactose-Free}

Cheesy Scalloped Cabbage Casserole {Gluten-Free; Lactose-Free} 1

Gluten and lactose-free Cheesy Scalloped Cabbage Casserole is an all-star comfort food side dish that pairs well with any number of things! When Mike and I were first married, I didn’t have a huge repertoire of recipes up my sleeve. I was still in law school at the time, and batch-cooking freezer-friendly meals (like spaghetti, beef stew, turkey chili, and chicken stir-fry) on weekends was my way of life. I was determined to cook homemade dinners for us though....

Cherry-Almond Brown Butter Blondies with White and Dark Chocolate Chips

Cherry-Almond Brown Butter Blondies with White and Dark Chocolate Chips 1

Cherry-Almond Brown Butter Blondies with White and Dark Chocolate Chips will make you a winner no matter what team you’re rooting for on game day! Let’s be real here; I’m just not that into football. To me, the only legitimate reason I can think of to attend a Super Bowl party would be for the food. (Ok, and maybe for the halftime show and/or commercials.)...

Soy Sauce Orange Cashew Chicken with Noodles

Soy Sauce Orange Cashew Chicken with Noodles 1

Soy Sauce Orange Cashew Chicken with Noodles is a delicious sweet/savory weeknight dinner in 30 minutes! I have a friend who won’t cook unless she can follow a recipe to follow to the letter. No subbing yellow bell pepper for red bell pepper, avocado oil won’t see the light of day if the recipe calls for sautéing in light olive oil, and if a recipe makes two servings but she’s cooking for four, she will literally make the same recipe twice instead of just doubling it. I’m totally not judging (to each her own! Whatever works, right?), but I seriously do not have patience for […]...

Easy Homemade Vanilla Almond Lattes

Easy Homemade Vanilla Almond Lattes 1

Disclosure: I’m sharing #beyondordinary in my life as part of a Sahale Snacks® sponsored series for Socialstars™. Try these Easy Homemade Vanilla Almond Lattes instead of hitting up your favorite café! As of late, I have come to terms with the following regarding myself and coffee: As an adult, it turns out I actually am a coffee drinker. I don’t like my coffee super strong and straight-up the way I drank it in law school (basically for rocket fuel); instead, I much prefer a medium roast brewed in a French press with a splash of whole milk or if I’m feeling indulgent, half and half. […]...

Japanese Power Bowl with Quick Miso Vinaigrette

Japanese Power Bowl with Quick Miso Vinaigrette 1

Make a Japanese Power Bowl with Quick Miso Vinaigrette for lunch to power through the mid-week slump! There’s always a debate about whether to buy lunch or brown bag it to work. Now that I work from home, I realize how fortunate I am to be able to whip up a healthy (hot, if I choose) lunch every day, but when I worked in an office I didn’t have that luxury. I frequently packed salads or power bowls like this, and Fridays were reserved for lunch out!...

Gluten-Free Coconut Almond Flour Cake {Inspired by Middle Eastern Cake Harissa}

Gluten-Free Coconut Almond Flour Cake {Inspired by Middle Eastern Cake Harissa} 1

A dense, moist, and sticky sweet Gluten-Free Coconut Almond Flour Cake, inspired by the Middle Eastern Cake Harissa. I hope you had a great weekend! If it snowed where you live, I hope you stayed safe and warm and had the chance to enjoy the snow…or at least bake something delicious! Mike and I are in DC and we’ve been hunkered down since Friday enjoying the snow; this weekend we had our second snowfall, which was actually a doozy: winter storm Jonas! Being from Buffalo, I am in my element, and although we were starting to go a little stir-crazy by Sunday afternoon, we actually […]...

Easy Miso Chicken Soup

Easy Miso Chicken Soup 1

Easy Miso Chicken Soup comes together in 30 minutes for a delicious weeknight dinner! Friends frequently ask Mike and I where we want to travel next, and both of us immediately think of going back to Thailand because it completely stole our hearts. The only problem with that is there are so many other beautiful places we want to visit first; Turkey, Eastern Europe, and Japan are all high on our list, with Japan in particular being near the top....

Savory Oatmeal Breakfast Bowls with Smoky Garlic Greens and Chipotle-Honey Vinaigrette

Savory Oatmeal Breakfast Bowls with Smoky Garlic Greens and Chipotle-Honey Vinaigrette 1

Savory Oatmeal Breakfast Bowls with Smoky Garlic Greens and Chipotle-Honey Vinaigrette is a delicious way to get in a serving of whole grains and vegetables early in the day! I’m really not fussy about my oats. I’ll take them just about any way I can get them: savory or sweet, whipped, steel-cut, made into granola, baked into muffins, and of course in cookie form. But one day I stumbled on a way of making oats that was a bit of a revelation for me....

Easy Turkey or Chicken Masala Wraps

Easy Turkey or Chicken Masala Wraps 1

Easy Turkey or Chicken Masala Wraps are a delicious recipe to transform leftovers into a completely new meal! I don’t consider myself a food snob at all. My go-to meal when nothing sounds good is a humble egg (preferably fried, runny yolk) with roasted vegetables, or a big pile of salad greens topped with whatever leftovers I can find in the fridge....
