Roasted Chickpea Salad

This is a new FAVORITE!! I made this last week when I was invited to a Middle Eastern Feast. I had no idea what to bring, like not a clue. So I reviewed a few recipes and this is the resulting recipe. It is so delicious and the warm flavors would pair so good with […]

Veggie Tots

We have our produce box delivered every Thursday to the gym. It’s like Christmas to open it up and see all the beautiful fruits and veggies and herbs! We were looking to mix it up a bit and the boys are definitely at an age where hand-held foods are just so realistic. A client shared […]

Help! My kid won’t eat his veggies!!!

Whoaaaa! Take a big deep breath, smooth your feathers, and prepare to go to the dinner table just a little bit calmer tonight…. I don’t know any parent that isn’t familiar with the dinner time struggles. It’s hard enough to prepare a meal and get it on the table. But the coaxing and coercing and […]

This quick weeknight meal lends itself well to prepping ahead. Poach the chicken on the weekend and store in a container for up to 4 days OR freeze the chicken in a bag, the veggies in a bag, and the sauce in a bag. Put all three bags into one big bag and your set […]

Sweet Potato Souffle

This Sweet Potato Souffle recipe is one I made up out of necessity. I had baked no less than ONE MILLION Sweet Potatoes for a cookout. Not one was eaten… hahahaha! I guess Potato Salad, Corn Salad, and Potato Chips seemed more interesting to the masses 🙂 But, what is one to do with a […]
