Herbed Sour Cream Loaf

Two very out of the ordinary things have happened this week: I’m dusting off the blog and actually sharing something with y’all. I made BREAD (okay, so it wasn’t REALLY bread…only partially).  But damn was it good! I don’t typically need bread.  Sure, I WANT bread (every second of every day, to be exact).  But for the…

Long Live Alfredo!

I love cheese.  A lot.  More than a lot, actually.  If I had to live off of one thing for the rest of my life (nutritional aspects aside), I’d probably choose cheese.  Probably?  No, I would.  Definitely.  I hope you’ll register this as a testament to just how important cheese is in my life. In…

The Breakfast Scramble.

Our weekday breakfasts are never more than a green smoothie (self control seems to be easier on a schedule). But on the weekends, there are few things I love more than a hearty scramble for breakfast. They’re ridiculously simple to do healthy, and always filling. I love to get creative when I’ve got the time…

Roasted [Mystery] Squash Tacos + Cucumber Salsa

First things first:  this meal (with the exception of the avocado and the tortillas, obviously) was 100% harvested from our garden.  It was one of the most delicious and rewarding dishes ever to come out of our kitchen.  It all started with a mystery squash.  Upon purchase, it was believed to be butternut.  Upon fruiting,…

All Things Healthful.

We’re doing a little “cleanse” of sorts.  It’s something we do relatively often (almost always in a different way).  A little internal refresh.  Something to clean out our guts and rid our bodies of nasties.  We eat pretty clean as it is, but every once in a while we have a craving for something more…

Perfect Protein Salad

Wow, has this been a busy (and beautiful!) summer. There’s been no shortage of amazingness in my life lately — I’m dying to catch you up! Let’s start with this amazing summer salad that I’ve been in love with forever.  If you’re lazy, you can get it at the PCC deli counter (like I’ve done…

Root Beer Roast | Pineapple + Fennel Slaw | Cumin Corn

New kitchen //  Beautiful Time to spend in new kitchen // Nonexistent Sadness level // Off the charts Cheryl recently read somewhere about a “root beer roast.”  I looked at her like she was crazy, but then she started explaining… “You just throw the pork roast in the crock pot with a bottle of really…

These are a few of my favorite things.

There are few things I love more in this world than the following: 1)  The first grill of the season (in spite of the ominous clouds on the horizon — hell, I dig living on the edge). 2)  Fresh Mexican (in this case, carne asada — my first attempt, mind you). 3)  Sharing the two…
