Here’s a little inspiration for a 15 minute “throw together” option. Just make sure you have a nice balance of the following: Protein, veg, healthy fat, carb and some spice. Salads or “power bowls” are all the rage and perfect excuse to combine and use up left overs.
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!
The other night my friend called last minute to gather a group to grill. I’m 50-50 when it comes to handling last minute plans… I like to consider myself super spontaneous, but I really value prep time. Anyways, I offered to bring a summery side dish – thinking I could whip up a healthy potato salad […]
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.

This recipe is loosely inspired by a side dish I had during a trip to my favorite Moroccan restaurant, Baboush, in town. The atmosphere and ambiance plays well to their Moroccan theme, but what I love most is there is a touch of sweet in most of their savory dishes. As far as veggies […]
In late spring when my neighborhood Dallas Farmers Market offers locally grown asparagus, I can’t resist. I am all for seasonal eating and there is no better way to celebrate springtime then by blending some of the tastiest herb flavors with fresh and easy food recipes. Even if you’re not motivated enough to plant your […]
I love my carbs – I just don’t love them processed! It was after I really got into running (and peanut butter sandwiches) that noticed I could not pronounce half the ingredients on the store bought loaf’s label. I wanted to get back to my Kansas roots, literally, and make my own bread just as […]
