Packed Lunch: Rice & Bean Bowl

I’m one of those people at the office who brings in lunch every day. The same lunch every single day. The Huffington Post wrote an article about us. Sure packing a lunch every day can get tiresome, but it’s cheaper and healthier to do it yourself. It’s hard to argue with that. If you’re on…

Spinach Mushroom Frittata

If you read this blog often, you might not think I eat anything other than dessert. Hopefully this shows otherwise. Of course I eat savory food every day, several meals a day. But I hardly ever blog about it because I’m someone who’s content with having the same meal for lunch every day of the…

4 Healthy New Year’s Recipes

New Year’s resolutions are hard. It’s easy to shoot to high and make resolutions impossible to keep up with; the best kind are little changes you can work into your everyday routine and maintain without even thinking about it. I didn’t make a food or fitness resolution this year. Mine is to get whiter teeth,…

Thai Reese’s Puffs Peanut Butter Sauce

When I was at the Wine & Food festival, I was lucky enough to meet Justin Warner after his demo. Justin has made a number of sweet and savory recipes for General Mills using their Big G cereals in unexpected ways(here’s the blog post featuring those). Jason from General Mills sent me some of their…

Healthy Black Bean Quesadilla

The saddest thing about moving to a new city besides leaving behind friends and family is always leaving behind good restaurants. There are always a few dished you just can’t find anywhere else and you don’t know what to do about it. Last time I was in Providence I had huevos rancheros with a black…

Warm Grape and Goat Cheese Salad

Sometimes I forget that I can make dishes with goat cheese in them. Whenever I’m at a restaurant I tend to order something—anything—with goat cheese on it; it escapes me that I can buy that at the store(for a lot cheaper) and use it myself. I’ve heard of roasting grapes before but frankly that’s more…

Hipsterfood’s Easy Lentil Soup

I always imagine soup as being one of those long, time-consuming foods to make. It definitely can be, but now I know it doesn’t have to be. I found this recipe on the blog, hipsterfood, and thought it looked too easy not to try. I’m also a sucker for anything with lentils in it. One…

Italian White Bean Salad

This is one of my favorite things I’ve eaten this Summer, which is saying a lot since I love sweets and it’s a savory recipe. It’s just the prefect, refreshing thing to throw together and put on a plate and enjoy without ever turning on the oven. The ingredients here are really simple: White beans,…

Caprese Omelet

Fresh mozzarella is something great. It’s just the right amount of creamy and chewy that melts just right. I could eat just about anything with fresh mozzarella and basil on it. This omelet is just as flavorful as any caprese salad or margarita pizza. The eggs give a blank canvas for sweet sundried tomatoes, creamy…

Easy Broccoli Frittata

On an average day I eat more eggs than anybody I know. I wish they were always this intricately flavored and delicious but more often than not they’re just scrambled. But once in a while—once in a while it’s refreshing to put time and thought into the simple egg and make something with a little…
