This is such an easy and tasty kale creation. The crunch makes it so delicious to eat – it’s almost like a potato chip! Plus the spice really makes it unique from your standard veggie chip.
Forget the fact that it’s well past Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and even New Year’s. My love affair with pumpkin is here to stay. When cooler weather arrives there is nothing better than a big pot of chili. This is the perfect healthy (hello, Vitamin A) and hearty dish with a creamy thickness from the pumpkin that is oh-so-savory!
This is my take on the most traditional meal to eat on New Years Day. I subbed the ham/pork for turkey sausage to keep it a bit healthier, but it is equally comforting, delicious, and a satisfying way to bring on the new year.
This is my version of Indian Garam Masala in the most simplified way possible. If your trying to warm your soul (or clear your sinuses) on this cold winter day than this is the recipe for you!
Ceviche was something I was looking forward to eating in Ecuador. It’s often disputed that ceviche’s birthplace is either Peru or Ecuador so it’s hard not to find it, and order it, from any given menu.

An afternoon stroll through Quito’s Old Town and a quick stop in a local hole-in-the-wall allowed me to eat next to the locals, but not with them… I’m so grateful that a number of companies are popping up […]
I am convinced there is no lactose intolerance problem in South America. I just returned from Ecuador and on every street corner, in every mom and pop convenient store, I was tempted by ice cream and frozen fruit treats galore. Just as much as this sweet man… I am a sucker for all things milky […]
My friends (admittedly myself included) are about as indecisive as, well, I’m not quite sure… So when it came to Fourth of July plans we considered a road trip to Austin, camping in Oklahoma, a flight to LA, going to my parent’s lake house outside Kansas City, and then we settled on staying in Dallas.

My sister Alli has a way with animals. I wouldn’t go so far as to say she’s a horse whisper – anyone that knows her knows she’s been bucked, thrown, broken a foot, dislocated a shoulder, suffered a concussion and had to undergo wrist surgery due to miscommunication with these four-legged friends. I guess that’s […]
