Grilled Brussels Sprout Pizza with Balsamic Glaze

- Food + Drink, Main Dish

I am a huge fan of pizza, like I’m sure most people are. But sometimes I like to mix it up a little and forgo the red sauce and typical toppings and go with something a little more unique. So, the other night, I decided to try making pizzas with the pitas that I bought at the farmers market and topped them with brussels sprouts. The end result was really good. Ingredients 4 pitas 1/2 of a red onion About 3…

Spiralized Zucchini Pasta

- Food + Drink, Main Dish

A few weeks ago, Brandon and I went out to dinner and instead of ordering pasta, I decided to go with a spiralized zucchini dish in an effort to make a healthier choice. I am a major sucker for pasta, but obviously it’s not something I should be eating every single day. I was a little hesitant about ordering the zucchini dish but loved it so much that I had to recreate it at home. We had this for a…

Almost-Vegan Chickpea Salad

- Food + Drink, Main Dish, Salads, Side Dishes

I’ve been in a little bit of a dinner rut again, so before I bought groceries this week I decided to check out Pinterest for a little inspiration. I’m always in search of high-protein vegetarian meal options, so when I found this recipe for Mashed Chickpea Salad, I knew I had to try it out. I put my own twist on the original recipe, and it turned out so good. Brandon even liked it! I’m calling it “almost-vegan” because I added…

The Best Way to Cook Tofu

- Food + Drink, Main Dish

Anytime I mention that I like tofu to someone who hasn’t had it before, they wrinkle their nose in disgust, baffled as to why in the world I would actually enjoy it. It never fails. BUT…I have been a vegetarian for several years and I will admit, it freaked me out a little bit at first as well, but just because I didn’t know the right way to cook it. I have had AWFUL tofu in some restaurants (not all,…

Veggie Pot Pie Muffins

- Food + Drink, Main Dish

The other night, I was finally feeling that our house (and the kitchen) was organized enough to actually cook something, so I went with our tried-and-true tofu stir fry. Then, the next night, I wanted to try something a little different…and I had some leftover veggies. So, the pot pie “muffin” was born. Disclaimer: I did not measure anything when making this so everything is just a guess. If you use this “recipe” just choose what works well for you! Ingredients:…

Mexican Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

- Food + Drink, Main Dish

While stuffed peppers are a favorite go-to dinner of ours, I very rarely use an actual recipe. However, this week I found a recipe for Mexican quinoa stuffed peppers on Pinterest, and had to test it out – how can you say no to healthy Mexican food? (The answer is: you can’t) I used slightly different spices, just because we didn’t have everything on hand that the recipe called for and I didn’t feel like buying more. The good news is…

Pear & Brie Grilled Cheese

- Food + Drink, Main Dish

Grilled cheese has always been a favorite of mine – we even had it as an appetizer (with tomato soup shots) at our wedding. Not even kidding. That was the one thing that I knew I HAD to have when it came to food for the wedding. While I’m always a fan of a classic grilled cheese with cheddar or american cheese, there’s just something about a fancier sandwich that I can’t say no to. I’ve committed to trying at…

Review: Hello Fresh (Simple Weeknight Dinners)

- Food + Drink, Main Dish

Sometimes when we get home from work at night, all we want to do is unwind on the couch with a glass of wine – going to the grocery store for fresh ingredients and then cooking an entire dinner just seems like so much work after a long day. That’s why I absolutely LOVED Hello Fresh when we tried it for the first time last week. I ordered our box online, and it arrived at our doorstep the following Wednesday (exactly when…

Butternut Squash Ravioli with Sage Brown Butter Sauce

- Food + Drink, Main Dish

It’s no secret: I am a sucker for any kind of pasta. Throw in some bread + olive oil and a glass of wine, and I’m in Heaven. So, the other day while grocery shopping, I picked up a butternut squash and figured I would attempt to make ravioli. Because HELLO…pasta and Fall flavors combined? What more could I ask for? While watching a cooking show the other day, I noticed that the chef was making ravioli with wonton wrappers. Brilliant,…
