Crispy Baked Kale Phyllo Triangles with 3-Ingredient Feta Yogurt Dip

The holidays are over, but that doesn’t mean we’re done entertaining.

There’s always something to celebrate and if there’s one thing I think we can all agree on about a party, it’s that there should be food. But yeah, maybe food that’s a little lighter because the holidays did just end and let’s face it, many of us probably need to cut back just a bit on indulgence right now.

We don’t have to sacrifice flavor though!

Herbed Chicken and Brown Rice Spanakopita Bowls

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....

Harvest Kale Salad with Roasted Acorn Squash, Toasted Hazelnuts, and Apple-Cinnamon Vinaigrette {Let Them Eat Kale Cookbook Giveaway}

Harvest Kale Salad with Roasted Acorn Squash, Toasted Hazelnuts, and Apple-Cinnamon Dressing

From first bite, I’ve always been a kale-lover, but that might be because the first time I had it I was an adult. (My mom has a serious dislike of all leafy greens so she literally never made them – not once! – for my sister and I growing up. But don’t worry, we weren’t veggie-deprived! She was still of the strict belief that every meal should include a vegetable.)...

Stovetop Tuscan Mac and Cheese

Thank you to I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter® for sponsoring this post. I am happy for the opportunity to share products that I enjoy with my readers, and I hope you like my recipe for Stovetop Tuscan Mac and Cheese. There are the obvious sources of mealtime inspiration, like cookbooks, food magazines, and food blogs. There are friends’ recommendations, and remakes of restaurant favorites. But how often do we really go to our moms for recipe advice? (I mean after college anyway…my mom was my cooking guru during undergrad!)...

Pardina Lentil, Green Apple + Kale Salad

DSC_4560(small)

Like most people I talk to, I’ve been trying to work my way through my super-stocked pantry and freezer. Last week a couple days before I went shopping, I took a look around my kitchen for any items on hand that would make a decent lunch. I found a bag of Pardina lentils tucked away in the back of the pantry, and some kale and a couple green apples in the fridge. I also grabbed an onion from the pantry, and along with a flavorful dressing made from basic fridge staples, it was an easy, delicious meal....

Sautéed Kale with Sausage and White Beans

Mike and I always joke that we are much more active in colder months, and this week was a good example. (Side Note: We are cold-weather people…I am so excited for our first snowfall!) The past seven days have been crazy busy with entertaining…I’ve made roast chicken, a slow-cooking Moroccan-inspired stew (like this one), and even an autumnal-themed luncheon. Now it’s time for a quiet meal and some quick-cooking comfort food....

Spanakopita Puffs

Given the choice between a big, one-plate meal (like lasagna or roast chicken), or a meal of several small dishes, I will choose the small dishes at least nine out of ten times. (That tenth time I just need roast chicken, lol.)...

Mashed Potatoes with Cabbage and Onion {Colcannon}

Halloween isn’t my favorite holiday. I kind-of see it as a non-holiday holiday that must be endured before the real holiday season can be ushered in (and for this I apologize to my darling Halloween-loving readers!). But…I will admit there are some fun things about it. Costumes, for example. And jack-o-lanterns. Scary movie marathons. And if you’re still young enough to do so, trick-or-treating is always a blast (who would refuse free candy, right?). These are the traditions that I grew up associating with Halloween....
