Balsamic Carrot Slaw

Balsamic Carrot Slaw

Winter can make eating in-season produce a challenge. When I lived in a remote area of Alaska and everything “fresh” was shipped in (and I use the word fresh lightly here), I had to get creative to keep my vegetable intake up around this time … continue reading

Garlicky Roasted Romanesco

I have a thing for weird vegetables. Not just the bent carrots or funny-shaped squash, but the lesser-known varieties that you often can’t find at the regular grocery store. Part of the reason shopping at the farmers’ market is so fun is that you get … continue reading

Baby Broccoli with Bacon

Baby Broccoli with Bacon

Fresh, local produce is my jam. Since I relocated back to the “lower 48,” I’ve been relishing all the tender veggies at my local farmers’ market. (And, of course, missing all the wild salmon and halibut from Alaska. You can’t have it all, I s’pose.) … continue reading

Green Beans with Macadamia Nuts and Thyme

Green Beans with Macadamia Nuts and Thyme

Green beans aren’t meant to be mushy, nor a dull shade of olive. And although I have a soft spot in my heart for the classic Thanksgiving green bean casserole (I mean, really, there’s something about that uber salty, canned soup-ness that takes me right … continue reading

Curried Chicken Salad with Cranberries

Curried Chicken Salad with Cranberries

Every family has their go-to comfort food or traditional meal. Growing up, roasted chicken dinner was it. To this day, the sight and smell of a whole chicken roasting away in the oven brings back fond memories. Like most Sunday night dinners, you make more … continue reading

Grass-fed Beef Meatballs with Zucchini Noodles

Grass-fed Beef Meatballs and Zucchini Noodles

Spaghetti and meatballs. Classic. Comforting. Food for the soul. Buuuuut, not exactly the most healthful meal. For many of us (me included), the wheat in pasta causes bloating, gas, and for lack of a better term, digestive turmoil. And if you do better on a … continue reading

Rutabaga Fries

Rutabaga Fries - half the carbs of regular [potato] fries. Give this low-carb, Paleo recipe a try!

With the growing season winding down, it’s time to make friends with hearty root vegetables again. Though, chances are, you never befriended rutabaga in the first place (how rude!). I get it. Rutabaga is like the awkward kid that gets picked last for sports. He’s … continue reading
