Za’atar Hummus

When you have really good hummus, you find yourself wanting to put it on everything. On sandwiches instead of mayo, a dollop on your salad, with your chips instead of salsa.  The za’atar really brings this to another level. Make sure you use the best olive oil you can get your hands on. Za’atar Hummus…

Quinoa, Tabbouleh Style

Quinoa is just plain fun to eat. You either like the nutty texture or you don’t. I happen to be a big fan of it. Cold or hot, quinoa makes a great addition to any meal or as a main stay.

Maple Glazed Donuts

I’ve only ever had donuts 3 times in my life. The first time was so heavenly and special, I had to experiment with them. Thus was born the maple glazed version. This recipe is so awesome because it’s made with coconut milk and the hint of nutmeg makes them smell just like the real deal….

Sundried Tomato & Onion Focaccia

There’s something about focaccia bread that keeps me coming back. There are so many possible topping choices, the olive oil and saltiness. I just can’t get enough. Be sure to use the best possible olive oil you can. It makes a difference. Better yet, use some of the oil from the tomatoes. This recipe is…

Broiled Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts get a bad rap. Yes they can taste awful, but it’s all in the execution. Salt, pepper, olive oil and cayenne pepper can go a long way with this dish. Season liberally! These baby cabbages are crispy, crunchy, smelly and delicious. They start on bake and end on broil. Each time I find…

Potato hash & more.

Remember that chimichurri recipe? If you need more things to pair it with- I’ve got you covered! This time we have a potato hash with various other goodies mixed in! Sometimes I’m too lazy to add anything to the hash and other times I’m feeling like Cookie Monster and add all the left overs in…

Pico de Gallo

Why buy jarred salsa when it’s so easy to make! I served this Pico de Gallo recipe at a party and before the night was over it was all gone! Make sure you have tortilla chips or your favorite taco recipe to serve it with. A spoon works, too! 🙂 Pico de Gallo Ingredients 2 large…

Cole Slaw

My mom made this when I was a kid and my sister and I loved it so much we would eat it with yellow corn tortilla chips as a snack. Everyone thinks they have the best recipe of potato salad and cole slaw right? Well this one is the best. I promise you! Thankfully my mom…

Chimichurri

I love this sauce. I kid you not I made it for weeks and doused it on everything from eggs, rice and salads, to steak and empanadas. It’s packed with garlic and flavor and can be used on anything. If you love it as much as I do you might just spread it on a…

Mac & Cheese

This by any means is not healthy but man is it GOOD! You’ll quickly learn I don’t often (if ever) cook with dairy. I’ve been severely allergic to dairy since I was born, so it’s been a journey navigating the dairy-free world. Let me just say it’s improved significantly in the last 15 years. There…
