Why You Should Just Eat The Fruit + A Spring Break Smoothie Recipe

It's the first day of Spring (finally!) and to celebrate I want to share one of my favorite smoothie recipes - I call this the Spring Break Smoothie because it pretty much tastes like Spring Break (minus the booze) in a glass.

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

Salmon with Lemon, Dijon and Dill

Salmon is one of my favorite go-to weeknight mains - it doesn't take long to marinate, it cooks quickly and as a bonus I can save a dose of my Omega-3 supplements... The main reason I cook it during the week though is it's not something I usually order out. I'm going to try to… Continue reading Salmon with Lemon, Dijon and Dill

Red, White & Blueberry Salad

Happy Fouth of July, everyone! I just couldn't let the holiday go by without contributing something red, white, blue and edible. Now, I realize there's just no topping last year's American flag tart (gluten-free and dairy-free), so I didn't even try with the desserts. I decided to go in a completely different direction instead... salad. Before I go any… Continue reading Red, White & Blueberry Salad
