Kale Caesar Salad with Tofu Croutons & Kalamata Caesar Dressing

Kale Caesar Salad with Tofu Croutons & Kalamata Caesar Dressing

Posted on Wednesday, April 9, 2014 in Veggie Dishes Everyone Loves

I pride myself on creating vegetarian recipes that even hardcore carnivores will love. This kale Caesar salad, well … it’s a bit of an exception. It really doesn’t even try. The thing is, I personally think it’s really kind of incredible, so the meat-eaters that turn their nose up at this one are, in my opinion, totally missing out.

Well, hey! More for us.

Broccoli & Meyer Lemon Pizza

Broccoli & Meyer Lemon Pizza

Posted on Friday, March 21, 2014 in Veggie Dishes Everyone Loves

Lemons on pizza? Like, rind and all?! I know, I know, I totally know. I wasn’t sure about it, either.

Even after I took my first bite, I wrinkled my nose a bit. It was … sort of bitter and weird. But then I kept going. That sour/tart, astringent taste soon became addicting – before I knew it, I couldn’t get enough.

Posted on Monday, December 23, 2013 in Beverages

The holidays are upon us, and dang, did Christmas come fast this year, or what?! I thought I had it together, but today, I’m a little stressed. I don’t know about you, but I feel like I need an extra boost (or two, or three) to get me through my endless to-do list.

Oh, and hey! A Power Berry Smoothie (or two, or three) should fit the bill just fine.

Individual White Berry Lemon Sangrias (Yes, Sangria in a Jar!)

Individual White Berry Lemon Sangrias (Yes, Sangria in a Jar!)

Posted on Thursday, April 25, 2013 in Beverages

I am way, way too excited about this foolproof way to make sure everyone gets their fair share of fruit in every single glass of sangria. Bonus: this method is perfect for parties (it doesn’t get much easier for the host or hostess). Double bonus: it’s freakin’ delicious, of course, because it’s sangria. In a jar!

Creamy Lemon Pasta with Peas and Optional Ham

Creamy Lemon Pasta with Peas and Optional Ham

Posted on Wednesday, April 3, 2013 in One Dish Two Ways

This pasta dish has been on my mind for some time. And, yeah, it’s been in my stomach more than a few times, too. First, I had to get the recipe just right. Then, I had a heckuva time getting decent photos of the stuff, so I had to keep making it. Over and over and over.

Thank freakin’ goodness. It’s spring! I’m feeling it. Easter is less than a week away, crocuses are already just about done blooming, daffs are due to show their sunny faces any day now, and perfectly green, fresh asparagus is in the market.

Spicy Baked Zucchini Fries with Greek Yogurt Dill Dip

Spicy Baked Zucchini Fries with Greek Yogurt Dill Dip

Posted on Monday, September 10, 2012 in Veggie Dishes Everyone Loves

So, zucchini fries. Not a new concept in the blogosphere and beyond, but something that flew under my radar until only recently. When I caught a glimpse of these crispy goodies during one of my many massive pinning sessions (ahem, can you say “Pinterest addiction”?), I knew they had to be mine.

Zucchini. Cut into fry shapes. Breaded in spicy Panko bread crumbs. Baked until crispy. Dipped in a cool, lemony, dill-infused Greek yogurt dip.

No-Bake Blueberry Cheesecake Mini Tarts

No-Bake Blueberry Cheesecake Mini Tarts

Posted on Friday, June 22, 2012 in Happy Endings

I thought I’d go with a “Happy Endings” type recipe for this Friday. These are sweet, easy, and cute … the perfect conclusion to the week.

These two-bite tarts (three if you’re daintier than me) are ideal for entertaining – they’re easy finger food, they look great, and they take – I’m not kidding – not even 10 minutes to make. Taste-wise, the filling is just right. Sour cream, cream cheese, whipping cream, lemon zest, brown sugar, and a little vanilla. It’s the perfect base for those beautiful bursts of blueberries.

Fresh-Squeezed Lemonade by the Glass

Fresh-Squeezed Lemonade by the Glass

Posted on Thursday, June 14, 2012 in Beverages

Sometimes you just need a little refreshment. One glass worth, to be exact. Something special, something easy, thirst-quenching, and cold. Some lemonade, for instance.

I love lemonade (but then who hates lemonade?). And I love that it’s a cinch to make, especially by the glass. This recipe could not be simpler – dissolve some sugar, squeeze a couple of lemons and add the juice, stir in water, and then plop in some ice cubes.

White Strawberry-Lemon Sangria

White Strawberry-Lemon Sangria

Posted on Thursday, May 24, 2012 in Beverages

Some might argue that a true sangria is red.

Me, I don’t care either way. It’s sangria. When you’re drinking sangria – regardless of the hue – life is automatically good. Who would want to argue with that?

This sangria in particular has become a fast fave in our house. It’s sweet, but not sickeningly sweet. It’s just-right sweet. The strawberries lend their signature summery taste while the sour lemon keeps everything in check. Lemon-lime soda tops it off and, I think, makes this sangria particularly drinkable – in a bit of a dangerous way, actually.
