Lentil Farro Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette

Omygoodness. I have been SICK. Like living on chicken broth, abandoning all personal hygiene, and finishing every TV season of everything kind of sick. By the time I crawled out of my cave of blankets and tissues it was like Tom Hanks in Castaway - complete Wilson situation with my Apple TV. Slow motion grab for Netflix as I was pulled back into the land of makeup and responsibility.   So after a nasty week of feeling terrible I am happy to report that I have finally rolled off … [Read more...]

Roasted Butternut Squash Farro Salad with Cider Vinaigrette

Holy Moly. I have SO many Thanksgiving recipes I want to share this month I don't even know what to do! My desk/kitchen counter/living room floor....probably car floor...jeans pockets...coat pockets...anything with pockets....are stuffed and covered in random scratch pieces of paper with recipe ideas scribbled all over.     Literally this is how I organize my life.   Thank God Facebook keeps track of birthdays for me.     But long story short I was … [Read more...]

Beet & Orange Citrus Salad

  So I do not  did not like beets.   I didn't just kind of not like them... like I really really didn't like them. You know when you're swimming in a lake and you accidentally swallow lake water? Like right by some seaweed? That's what I thought they tasted like. Dead serious.   Then something magical happened... I went out to dinner to this restaurant I had been dying to go to (RPM Italian!), and I ordered beets...and I LOVED them. They were prepared to perfection. … [Read more...]

Quick White Bean Nicoise Salad and Quick Fixes When You’ve Overindulged

  So I had such a great time this weekend! One of my very best friend's from growing up got married and her wedding was fabulous!! I have never seen a couple so in love - if I ever had any thoughts that real love and soul mates don't actually exist (Flash back 2 weeks ago to me shoving my face with soy ice-cream... watching 500 Days of Summer...and wondering why Prince Charming hasn't called yet....), 5 minutes into their wedding and you would have already completed your E-Harmony … [Read more...]

Roasted Salmon Summer Salad with Capers and Sweet Red Onion

    I just can't do it guys. Nope. No way. No how.   You can dress it up all you want... smother it in bbq sauce, hide it in a quesadilla, pound it into a burger....   Okkkk maybe mold it into a McNugget...   But I cannot eat chicken again this week. I have hit my poultry limit. Do you ever get like that??   I don't eat red meat and I'm usually too lazy to defrost frozen fish so my weeknight meals usually revolve around … [Read more...]
