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

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.

Harissa-Spiced Roasted Root Vegetable Medley Salad with Sweet-Spicy Date Vinaigrette

Harissa-Spiced Roasted Root Vegetable Medley Salad with Sweet-Spicy Date Vinaigrette 1

The flavors of this festive Harissa-Spiced Roasted Root Vegetable Medley Salad with Sweet-Spicy Date Vinaigrette are perfectly balanced. So…that’s really what you want as your Christmas gift?, Mike asked me dubiously. Yes. You know how much I love the Russian ballet, I replied with an ear-to-ear grin after telling him that I wanted to go see The Nutcracker with him. Judging by the look on his face, I might as well have asked him to find me the Holy Grail or to lasso me the moon. Such is the difference between men and women, lol....

Two Potato Side Dishes for Holiday Entertaining

Two Potato Side Dishes for Holiday Entertaining

These two potato side dishes for holiday entertaining are perfect recipes if you want to slightly switch up a couple classic festive dishes! When it comes to holiday meals, the meat might be the main event (or at least what gets the most attention), but for me, the sides are the stars of the show. Give me a plate full of stuffing, mashed potatoes, candied yams, green beans almondine, and cranberry sauce and I’m a pretty happy girl. And the turkey itself is totally gravy....

Cheesy Green Bean and Red Rice Casserole {Lactose-Free; Gluten-Free}

Cheesy Green Bean and Red Rice Casserole {Lactose-Free; Gluten-Free} 1

This Cheesy Green Bean and Red Rice Casserole makes a beautiful addition to any holiday spread. With Thanksgiving being next week, do you have your holiday meal fully planned? Of course there are some dishes that have to be on the table (I’m looking at you, turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and cranberry sauce!), but in my family, we like to switch up the other sides a little bit. Maybe one year we’ll make candied sweet potatoes, and the next year it’ll be marshmallow-topped squash. Sometimes corn casserole is involved, and that is always a winner....

Vegan Boston Baked Beans {Small-Batch}

Vegetarian Boston Baked Beans 1

My take on Boston Baked Beans is vegan and comes together in a fraction of the time that the original recipe takes…it’s the perfect side dish! I confess, I’ve never been one to be all that sad when Labor Day rolls around. Yes, I like summer (as much as any Buffalo-born-and-raised-girl can), but in all honesty, I love autumn way too much to be disappointed about summer’s end. (And don’t even get me started about the first snowfall; I look forward to it every year the way a kid looks forward to summer vacation or a trip to Disney. What can I say? Buffalo is […]...

Layered Corn, Avocado, and Tomato Salad with Herbed Sour Cream

Layered Corn, Avocado, and Tomato Salad with Herbed Sour Cream 1

This Layered Corn, Avocado, and Tomato Salad with Herbed Sour Cream features the best of summer produce and is sure to be a hit at your summer picnic or potluck. At the beginning of summer, one of Mike’s favorite coworkers moved to Hawaii. (It was a sad day when we said goodbye to her, not only because she was funny and sweet and smart, but also because she makes the best brownies I’ve ever put into my mouth. She’s like some kind of evil brownie magician because I swear her recipe is irreplicable despite my 25 pathetic attempts.)...

Grilled Zucchini with Quick Tomato-Olive Sauce and Feta Cheese

Grilled Zucchini with Quick Tomato-Olive Sauce and Feta Cheese 1

Bright Mediterranean flavors make this Grilled Zucchini with Quick Tomato-Olive Sauce and Feta Cheese a perfect summer side dish. Mike and I decided years ago that we just aren’t campers. Actually, it was after our first camping trip that we sort-of had an inkling that it just wasn’t our cup of tea, but after our second trip we outright swore off camping altogether. (It’s not the bugs, or the snakes, or even the uncomfortable bedding that gets me. What kills it for me is the fact that I can never just get clean, lol. Dirty feet and sticky fingers are the stuff my nightmares are […]...

Watermelon Salad with Sweet and Spicy Vinaigrette

Watermelon Salad with Sweet and Spicy Vinaigrette 1

Sweet and salty pair perfectly in this refreshing Watermelon Salad with Sweet and Spicy Vinaigrette! Growing up, our summertime meals consisted mostly of fresh veggies. Sweet grilled corn on the cob; sliced red tomatoes with my mom’s sweet creamy white dressing; zucchini sautéed with garlic, olive oil, and salt; steamed green beans with butter; bowls of leafy greens. It was bliss, all of it, and it’s no wonder that to this day my sister and I both prefer veggies over meat or junk food. (Thank you, Mom!)...

Creamy Dijon Potato Salad with Herbes de Provence

Creamy Dijon Potato Salad with Herbes de Provence 1

If you’re looking for a new twist on a classic favorite side dish, Creamy Dijon Potato Salad with Herbes de Provence is the answer! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that when Mike and I were in Paris there was no holds barred on things like bread and cheese (come on, it’s Paris). We tried to make up for it by walking seven to ten miles a day (and that wasn’t even our sole means of transportation; we typically took the Metro three or four times a day too! What can I say? Paris is big and there’s a lot to do). And […]...
