Homemade Grain-Free Tortillas (+ stuff to put on them)!

Long live the flour tortilla — the perfect fluffy vehicle for all delicious foods desiring to be swaddled. Of course, these days gluten and flour aren’t always the popular choice. I’ve opted for corn tortillas only to longingly stare at someone’s traditional burrito, dreaming of the pure bliss that is experienced with each bite. Nothing else […]

Zucchini Lentil Bolognese Lasagna

There aren’t many things better in the world than pasta.I crave any and every kind on a daily basis, but with the blaring summer months upon us, a big bowl of carbs isn’t always *gasp* what makes me feel best. That was the impetus for this creation — swap traditional lasagna noodles for a beautiful, […]

Carrot Bacon

That’s right, people: CARROT BACON. And before all of you, ‘Heaven-is-paved-with-bacon’ people get your panties in a bunch, just know this isn’t meant to BE bacon, but a pretty damn tasty replacement for those who would like to eat less meat or are vegetarian.

I’ve been personally fighting off a mini sinus infection, and knew I could knock this out through good food, a ridiculous amount of neti pot-ing, and homeopathic approaches. I’ve been pounding my sinus […]

Classic White Truffle Pasta

  Pimped Out Buttered Noodles I just had the week of a lifetime. I traveled all over Italy with Lucini Italia to see Italy through their eyes and enjoy the olive harvest. I plan on sharing much more about this trip soon, but immediately need to share my truffle foraging experience. We had a gorgeous […]

Zucchini ‘Cacio e Pepe’

Buon Appetito! Cacio e Pepe is a classic Roman pasta dish which means “cheese and pepper”. It’s a testament to the statement, “less is more”. It’s absolutely delicious and a quick solution to a rumbling belly, but I wanted to find a way to create it without the heavy feeling of cheese and pasta. Zucchini […]

Coconut Cream Fruit Bowls

    My Sweet Tooth’s Hero!   I’m more of a savory person than sweet, but when my sweet tooth aches, it aches hard! I keep chocolate bars around for those hankerings, but sometimes they just don’t hit the spot. I need something more purposeful. An actual dessert with a spoon instead of breaking off […]
