Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Pesto + The Veggie Spiralizer

It's the first week of fall and while everyone else is blogging about pumpkin flavored soup, smoothies, muffins, cookies.... I'm stuck in summer mode. As excited as I am to move on to fall, I'm still savoring the last few tastes of summer, like the basil, zucchini and tomato in this dish. The light, refreshing flavors feel and… Continue reading Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Pesto + The Veggie Spiralizer

Smooth Summer Squash Soup

Call me crazy, but sometimes even in the middle of summer a bowl of soup can be quite nice. I had the most amazing summer squash soup on our California road trip (when it's 60 degrees in the evening hot soup doesn't sound as crazy too). Anyway, I loved it so much I decided to try to recreate… Continue reading Smooth Summer Squash Soup

Spring Spaghetti Squash Pasta

I was going to wait to post this one after another go-around so I could make it a little prettier. I wanted to add fresh basil. And put the vegetables and chicken on top of the spaghetti squash instead of mixing it all up in the pan hamburger-helper style so it would photograph better. In… Continue reading Spring Spaghetti Squash Pasta

It took me a long time to come around before jumping on the Paleo bandwagon. And then once I did, it took me a longer time still to say the words about myself: I’d gone Paleo. Even now, writing this post, it’s hard seeing them in black and white, not gonna lie. You see, I’ve… Continue reading Beef & Broccoli + Why I Went Paleo

Creamy Cauliflower and Leek Soup

I know this isn't your typical Hello, Spring! recipe for the first week of the new season... but spring sure is taking it's sweet time to get here.... at least in Texas that is. The weather here lately has been down right erratic. 80 degrees one day. 30 degrees the next. And rainy. My god, so much rain. It… Continue reading Creamy Cauliflower and Leek Soup

The Best Beef Stew

First, let me apologize to all the Catholics out there for sending you beef on the first Friday of Lent. I'm truly sorry. But I thought with another cold front on the horizon you might need this for the weekend... Oh, the tease of spring... it continues. Instead of cursing the weather gods for keeping… Continue reading The Best Beef Stew
