20-Minute Summer Vegetable Curry with Seared Salmon 1

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 skin until I realized that it can be crisp and flavorful. (Hello wild-caught salmon and a short stint in a very hot pan.)

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....

20-Minute Chicken Fajita Quinoa Dinner Skillet

20-Minute Chicken Fajita Quinoa Dinner Skillet 1

This quick-cooking 20-Minute Chicken Fajita Quinoa Dinner Skillet is cooked on the stovetop, and is a great recipe to have up your sleeve for those busy summer nights when you don’t want to heat up the oven or fire up the grill! It’s a great way to use leftover chicken too. So, Mike still won’t eat quinoa. I wish we could be one of those happy dinner households where they make one meal and all sit down to enjoy the same thing together like The Brady Bunch or something. That has just never been the case with us....

Strawberry and Cream Smoothie Bowl

Strawberry and Cream Smoothie Bowl 1

Every spring I look forward to picking strawberries the same way I look forward to picking apples in fall. It’s like a seasonal rite of passage. But then when the time actually comes to do the picking, typically my basket isn’t even halfway full when I end up thinking about how much easier it would be to just buy the fruit pre-picked. So it goes every year, lol....

Quick Creamy Chicken Paprika Soup

Quick Chicken Paprika Soup 1

I’m a planner. (I may have mentioned that here before or you may have guessed. Or you may know from personal experience, and if that’s the case and I drove you nuts with my 1001 lists all I can say is I’m sorry. Truly. But remember, like Monica’s label maker, sometimes organization comes in handy. ;) ) Anyway....

Sweet and Savory Teriyaki Nut Squares {Paleo}

Sweet and Savory Teriyaki Nut Squares {Paleo}

So, here’s how this oddball recipe came to be… I was recently thinking about my Stovetop Maple Nut Brittle when the idea for a savory version came to mind. That spun off into a savory granola idea, then a savory granola bar, and then nut bars. Teriyaki nut bars, to be exact, because Mike and I had just come home from lunch at our favorite Japanese restaurant and I had Japanese food on the brain. Welcome to the inner workings of the mind of a food blogger, lol....

Blue Cheese, Chicken, and Cauliflower Skillet with Bacon, Walnut, and Date Topping

Blue Cheese, Chicken, and Cauliflower Skillet with Bacon, Walnut, and Date Topping

I go through phases when I just don’t feel like cooking. At all. Sometimes, if I’m really burned out, the better part of a week will go by before I feel inspired to cook. That’s when Mike gets to do one of his favorite things: live off the food from the Pakistani restaurant a block from where we live. It’s a windfall for him and a win for me too since I get a much-needed break and time to recharge....
