Creamy Avocado Cilantro Sauce

Everyone knows the struggle of finding a perfectly ripe avocado.

Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs – Make your Own Food Dyes with Food!

I feel like food dye is most commonly found in frosting, and I just don’t make that much frosting. I’m gonna go ahead and call that a good thing, but ever since I saw a food network show with blueberry dyed frosting, I’ve been dying to try it. Plus, now that I’ve detoxed my life and cut…

Healthy Creamy Chip Dip

Grilled Peaches

If you’ve been following along, you know that I have a very big thing for Peaches, especially late season Palisade Peaches! Peaches make an amazingly sweet and healthy dessert all on their own, but sometimes you want just a little more.

Sometimes you just need a snack: a hearty, carby, delicious snack. And there’s no better time for that kind of snack than before a big day: a big day on the boat, a big day at a beer fest; or, as for me today, a big day at a wedding!! So today I’m indulging, and…

Carrots 2 Ways // using the whole carrot 

In honor of earth day yesterday I thought I’d share a recipe with “reduce, reuse, and recycle” at heart. Food waste is a big problem in the states, and part of that problem is not knowing what to do with all parts of the vegetable! In this recipe we use the whole carrot: the root…

This is a great treat for an afternoon where you want something light, especially as the weather starts to warm up and we see hints of spring. The complex flavor of fig really adds to the dish, complementing the light and wispy flavor of the cantaloupe. And the sprouts add great texture.        Ingredients: 1/2 cantaloupe…
