Scallops & Risotto

(peeks head outside nervously awaiting lingering snowstorm to hit me in the face) IT'S SPRING! Well, at least it looks like it is. We finally made it through a very long and tough winter. That was a bit** and yes, I'm being polite. I love this time of year! Flowers start poking through the ground [...]

Massaged Kale & Fennel Steak Salad

  There's a drool that is constant with this salad. I love it and I eat it almost everyday (minus the steak). Sometimes I eat it with chicken or shrimp but it's definitely my go-to! It is very low in fat and super healthy while filling at the same time. Try it! 1 bundle red [...]

Eggplant Rollatini

I love eggplant. The two best ways to make it in my opinion? Asian inspired with rice or parm/rollatini. You can't go wrong. Rollatini is just eggplant parm basically, stuffed with ricotta and spinach (among other spices). It is so worth it! Sunday's + rain +being nine months preggo and about to pop any day [...]

Butternut Squash salad with crispy prosciutto

Crisp fall salads that can transition into winter? YES please. I love a warm/cold salad and this happens to feature both. I roasted butternut squash and paired it with some of my favorite winter flavors for a light but bold crunch. Plus, find me a person who complains at the sight of crispy prosciutto!! Paired [...]

Pistachio Pesto Shrimp pasta

Summer has been a little bit hectic so far. We took a trip to Poland to handle some business but to also be with family. It was a good but quick 5 days! Each day, I thought about the garden a little and was curious to see what was growing. I was also daydreaming about [...]
