So Fresh & So Clean
SUMMER: The time of year when a lot of my favorite foods come together at peak ripeness and everything is available at the FRESHEST of fresh. Why not combine all of the things into one tasty, fresh, and healthy dinner that can be eaten around a table full of friends, or standing up in your kitchen because you're too excited to eat it and you never make it to the table (guilty). These shrimp and pineapple lettuce cups are a breeze to make, and you can practice your knife skills during the prep. The pineapple lends sweetness to the tender shrimp, while the summer pico de gallo adds tang and brightness. A little crunch from some water chestnuts and bibb lettuce, and you're on your way to a super summer supper. Keep reading for the recipe...Read More
Dinner in a Flash!
I taught myself how to cook during college - after eating every flavor of Hot Pocket that was ever made. I remember sliding the hot pock out of the sleeve and thinking to myself, "enough is enough." Anyway, I was learning the basic comfort foods throughout my four years and was excited to move in with my besties after graduation so that we could all cook together and share recipes. My honorary sister, Kari, made this soup for us while living together and I have been making it consistently ever since. It is so easy and SO GOOD! I'll always think of her when I make it and I think that's why I make it when I'm not feeling so great - instant comfort!

This Little Piggy Went to Market...
Pork. It's what's for dinner. Remember those pork cutlets Will Morrow described in my Hangry Hero spotlight? Well here's my version: quick, delicious and absolutely addicting. I can see why he is so obsessed with them at the moment. This supper was quite a highlight in my household - hangry bf ate three of the cutlets before we even sat down. It's even quicker if you enlist someone to help you make them - he took on the roll of fry cook, while I took care of the dredging station. Keep reading to find out how to make these babies at home.

Spice Up Your Life
Do you have this song in your head now? I do. Hi friends! The days are getting shorter and the temperatures are dropping, so I've been coming up with simple week-night suppers that warm me up from the inside and allow me to enjoy the last rays of sunshine. Meatloaf has been a staple in my life since I was little. My mom made meatloaf a lot and I have taken her recipe and added my own twist and tips for you!Read More
Feel Good Fish Dish
Salmon is such a wonderful fish. It can stand up to bold flavors, it's flaky, but still delicate, you can grill it or bake it or sear it -- I just love it. I get really excited when it's on sale (the fresh stuff, not the frozen stuff), so I like to treat it with love and respect when it makes an appearance in my kitchen. Since my trip to China, I've been under the influence of Asian flavors and this recipe was a big hit at my house. Give it a try and let me know what you think!Read More
