Nutty Chicken Salad Wonton Cups

After weeks of large meals, I’m definitely ready for something a little lighter. This chicken salad is one of my favorites. It has so many different textures and flavors and the wonton cup serving bowls add a great crunch! Serve this as an appetizer or keep the wonton cups in an airtight container and the

Apple Meatloaf with Caramelized Onion Gravy

 This wintery weather has me instantly craving comfort food. A few weeks ago, Josh and I picked up some ground beef and pork from a local farm and I was excited to figured out what to do with it. Answer: meatloaf. The apple and carrot in this loaf add a pop of sweetness and added

Slow Cooker Moroccan Chicken

After spending long hours prepping food over the holiday weekend, I’m sure we’re all ready for a simple and healthy meal that’s not turkey or mashed potatoes! This recipe is so comforting, packs lots of nutrition and is very simple to make. The Moroccan seasoning (which is a combo of cinnamon, cumin, black pepper and

Miso-Garlic Marinated Ribeye Steak

Miso (soybean paste) is often an underutilized ingredient, but it adds amazing salty flavor to marinades and dressings. This steak is sweet, salty and spicy and while great on it’s own, it would also make a wonderful taco filling. If you’re a fan of Korean BBQ, this recipe will be one that you will definitely

These types of desserts can be very high carb, so I decided why not make a bar that tastes exactly the same but contains health benefits? I’m telling you, these are delish! Super peanut

Roasted Italian Sausage and Cabbage Sheetpan Supper

Letting the oven do most of the work is so nice during the busy work week. This meal is not only delicious, but also chock-full of protein and fiber! The crispy, nutty roasted cabbage paired with spicy jalapeños and sweet sausage is a fabulous flavor combo. I finished mine with balsamic drizzle (which can be

Roasted Pumpkin and Goat Cheese Soup

Who doesn’t love fall? The leaves are changing, the weather is tolerable (just ask any chef who has spent the entire summer cooking in hot kitchens) and the pumpkins and squash are plentiful. This soup is a labor of love, but nothing beats fresh pumpkin. And this recipe makes a large amount, so you can

Fennel Apple Salad with Lemony Tahini Dressing

Fennel is a sweet and crunchy root vegetable that works beautifully in salads, pasta dishes and soups. In this recipe, I paired it with apples, parsley and sunflower seeds (for more crunch!) and a lemony dressing to help balance the licorice flavor of the fennel. Serve this salad at lunch with sandwiches or at dinner
