Thank you to Tyson Foods for sponsoring this post. I am happy for the opportunity to share brands that I believe in with my readers, and I hope you enjoy my recipe for Herbed Chicken and Brown Rice Spanakopita Bowls.
I don’t know who first came up with the idea of a meal in a bowl (for some reason, I feel like it was a fast food chain!), but whoever it was is a food genius. (more…)

When autumn rolls around with its shorter days and chilly evenings, I always start to feel a little nostalgic.
What that really means is that I start to miss the cold-weather comfort foods that I haven’t had in what feels like forever because the weather has been too warm to really enjoy them. (more…)

I admit Mike is without a doubt the grillmaster in our house.
He’s very particular about the grilling process and basically has it down to a science. Which is why it was really strange when one day when I grilled (for like the second time, ever), he asked me how I made the chicken taste so good.

So, I always thought I wasn’t a big fan of Thai green curry.
I couldn’t put my finger on it exactly, but I always knew there was just something about it – some flavor in there – that didn’t quite sit well with me. (more…)

What is your favorite recipe using zucchini? Muffins, breaded and fried, or stuffed, maybe?
This recipe is always a crowd-pleaser, and really lets the flavor of zucchini shine…

When I think of a picnic, I always think of fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, potato salad, some kind of cooked greens, iced tea, and a big chocolate cake.
I realize that this sounds very Southern, which is odd to me because I’m from New York…and I can’t ever remember having a picnic like this in my life! (Who knows, maybe I did when I was a kid and I just don’t remember.) (more…)

I love chicken satay; I mean I really adore it.
I never hit up a Thai restaurant without ordering it, and I like coming up with different variations of it (like soup and sandwiches) in my own kitchen. (more…)

I have a weird method of cooking for Mike and I.
One thing I adore about him is how even though he is a crazy-picky eater, if it’s a dish he likes, he doesn’t mind eating it for leftovers…for a week straight. Yup, I’m a lucky girl. (more…)

I remember having a discussion with a friend a few years ago (before paleo was a household word) about the paleo way of eating. She was telling me about a friend of a friend who had converted three months ago and claimed to “feel great and be in the best shape of her life”. (more…)

Sometimes spring is obvious (like when temps go from 35 degrees to 55 degrees overnight and melt three feet of snow), and sometimes it isn’t quite so obvious (like when temps raise just a degree or two over the span of an entire month).
And then there are times when spring needs a little coaxing…like when it snows two feet in the span of two days at the end of March/beginning of April.
