Unicorn Cauliflower Salad

  Salad at the End of the Rainbow Unicorns seem to be all the rage these days. Unicorn onsies. Unicorn toast (not to be confused with Mermaid toast). Unicorn lattes (yes people … they’re real! Served up in Brooklyn at The End). So I got to thinking … what about Unicorn … salad? True. Unicorn […]

Vegan Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream

I would happily eat ice cream everyday for the rest of my life. If I could deal with dairy. But I can’t, which used to make me incredibly sad. So sad that the ice cream maker that arrived as a wedding present last year almost seemed like a cruel joke. That is, until I decided […]

Golden Beet Pasta with Okra

  Pantry Pasta to the Rescue! I had a full morning with very little fuel. I kicked off the day by teaching a local class for Under Armour at Belk, followed by a martial arts conditioning and sparring class that had me resembling a ripe, drenched tomato by the end of class. I ran a few […]

Sweet Potato ‘Pasta’ with Spicy Vodka Sauce

Different Than the Real Thing, Baby! . . . .and different is a good thing! I’ve gotta say, I’m in a pretty committed relationship with my spiralizer. Dr. Will Cole has me off grains for a while as we work on strengthening my digestion, so I’ve been replacing my deep affinity towards pasta with veggie noodles […]

Walnut Meat Tacos with Sun Dried Tomato Spread

Meaty Meatless Tacos!   I was recently getting my lashes done with the amazing Daniella Allen out of Charleston, SC. I basically lay there for an hour or so with my eyes closed, so we have ample time to talk about anything ranging from family life, travel, to recipes. She was going on and on […]

Grilled Carrot Dogs

4th of July Showstopper! I come from a baseball family, which means hot dogs, peanuts, beer, and a night at the ballpark is like a warm hug. The problem is, well—the hot dogs. Mystery meat that most likely doesn’t come from an organic, local and humane source. There are a few decent brands out there, […]

Roasted Beet and Grilled Orange Salad with Chive Dressing

A Summer Solstice Salad   Happy Summer Solstice! Yesterday was the longest day of the year where the sun seemingly stands still and light fills up the world. It’s the first day of summer which means a season of welcomed bright salads. I’ve made it my duty to eat a salad with every dinner this […]

Coconut-Almond Chocolate Dipped Cherries

  ☽ Chocolate Cherry Moons ☾ It’s summertime and that means CHERRIES! I love these little bombs of flavor in both sweet and savory situations, but was feeling an urge to satisfy my sweet tooth. Everyone loves a good chocolate dipped strawberry, but what better way of saying upgrade then dipping cherries in this gorgeous ganache with […]

Sweet Minted Pea Soup

I just returned from the frozen tundra of NYC to my normally warm southern home of Charleston only to discover it’s just as nippy. I’m on a quest to stay warm and decided after a good hot and sweaty yoga class that soup was on the menu for lunch. My husband is a self-proclaimed pea addict, […]

Vanilla Cashew Milk Punch

It’s New Year’s Eve and corks will be popping and champagne flowing. While I’m a huge fan of bubbles, I also love drinks that evoke comfort and bring me back to my happy place (aka please make me an adult milkshake). Milk Punch is a traditional New Orleans style drink that’s served during Mardi Gras. It’s […]
