Weeknight Shrimp Cioppino-ish Stew

Weeknight Shrimp Cioppino-ish Stew

Cioppino has always been one of my favorite dishes. I love a good tomato broth, tons of seafood, and some crusty bread to soak up any leftover broth. While I have a cioppino recipe on my blog that I personally love, I’ll usually only make it on special occasions. It doesn’t necessarily take too long […]

Crispy Zucchini & Red Lentil Turmeric Fritters

Crispy Zucchini & Red Lentil Turmeric Fritters

I’m gonna be honest: I’ve tried a lot of zucchini fritter recipes. A good zucchini fritter= SO GOOD. However, from my experience with multiple recipes, they often can be a bit temperamental, resulting in fritters that fall apart, have a more pancake-like texture, or suffer from watery zucchini… which also felt like it took an […]

I created this recipe a few Sundays ago right after a market haul. I had just gotten some gorgeous heirloom tomatoes and wanted to highlight them.

Corn, Snap Pea, & Burrata Salad

I know I’m all about monster salads, but there’s a new kid on the block: dinner salads. A super simple salad to have on the side with dinner that only has a handful of ingredients (I’ll be honest, my monster salads can have a lot) and a “vinaigrette” that can be made on the spot […]

Ginger Turmeric Roasted Fish (Whole 30, GF, DF)

Ginger Turmeric Roasted Fish (Whole 30, GF, DF)

Sometimes I go back and forth on white fish, but when it’s perfectly flaky like this, I’m all in. Better yet, it takes only 10 minutes to cook and this marinade is just as quick to make. Serving with white rice to absorb any extra marinade is a must in my book. Next time I’ll […]

Apricot, Cherry & Burrata Salad

Apricot, Cherry & Burrata Salad

For me, this salad is all about celebrating what’s at the market. It’s intentionally simple. There’s no salad dressing. There’s no bells or whistles. Just extra virgin olive oil and flaky salt. When produce is at its peak, that’s all it needs. The inspiration of this dish came from my desire to just eat all […]

Sticky Pomegranate BBQ Drumsticks (Whole 30-Ish)

Bonus points because this BBQ sauce is full of flavor and plenty sweet, but has no refined sugar and just […]

I’ve been loving these salmon tacos as an easy weeknight meal.

My favorite way to do these- cook the salmon the […]

This has been one of my favorite combinations of flavors for salads this month. I tried it once in early August and found myself craving it almost every week. It just feels so summery and bight.

This recipe is a bit outside my normal flavors, which is why I’m loving it right now. It’s like Mother Nature knows I have plans to cook this, because every time I’ve made this it’s been on a rainy day that calls for a comforting and cozy recipe.  This recipe is true to me- meaning […]

Grilled Miso Butter Corn

Grilled Miso Butter Corn

Corn brings out some of my strongest childhood memories related to food. As I pulled the husks off of just a few ears for this recipe, the memories just flooded back. We’d be at the beach, sitting outside on the stairs shucking two dozen corn (can never have enough). Shucking was the job no one […]

As summer approaches, it’s all about grilling. It’s quick, simple, and healthy. These kabobs include some of my favorite vegetables to grill- peppers, zucchini, red onion- along with my favorite fruit to grill- pineapple.
