Sauteed Baby Zucchini

There’s something about the “baby” version of veggies that just makes me want to eat them more. I’m guessing I’m not alone since baby carrots are such a staple no one thinks twice about it (even though rumor is they aren’t actually baby carrots anyway but rather full...

Broiled Sea Scallops

Even though I grew up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, where I spent summers crabbing and consuming all sorts of crabs, shrimp, and clams, sea scallops are one of my all-time favorite seafoods. Bay scallops are one of my least favorite. So don’t get the two mixed up....

Easy Kale Salad

A simple massaged kale salad is a good staple to have as part of your arsenal, and it creates a base with which you can add all sorts of creative toppings. Avocado adds some healthy fat to this version, and I even threw in some pomegranate seeds for the fall. Nothing...

Brussels Sprout Chips

  I decided to make these as an experiment because I had a surplus of Brussels sprouts, and I’m so glad I did, because they will now be in regular rotation for the family’s healthy snacks. They’re simple to make- consider putting some out for your next get...

Avocado Toast

I invented this version of avocado toast back when it was all the rage about when I created the Cleanse, and I come back to it over and over again for an easy breakfast. In the summertime, my husband and I always arrange to hang out with his best friend, and we...

Beef Stew

Chilly fall and winter days call for a good soup, and some form of beef stew is usually in the mix at our house. I make it in different ways…sometimes with wine, sometimes with Worcestershire sauce, and this time, with mustard. Sounds weird, but I got inspired after...

Mustard Balsamic Pork Chops

My husband created a marinade this was inspired from, and it’s not stuff I would have initially put together, but it’s really good! I knew I had to share it with everyone. This could also work as a marinade on chicken, or on other cuts of pork.   Prep Time: 15...

Simple Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts may be a hard sell for some people, but I think it’s just because you either: 1) haven’t had fresh ones; or 2) you haven’t cooked them the right way. No one wants gross water logged mushy Brussels sprouts. This is a recipe you can start with to dip...

Balsamic Sauteed Asparagus

This asparagus is so simple yet seriously awesome. I don’t even love asparagus but I could eat this all day. Not even lying. It’s a great example of how a little tweak can turn a dish into something special! I use organic asparagus, which is often much thinner and...
