Tangy & Zesty Greek Salad

After the New Year hit, my husband and I vowed to eat at least one salad a week. I know, not very ambitious, but we’re hoping it will help us feel better about ourselves this year. Gotta start small, right? We’ve been bad lately, especially with ordering out (makes me cringe just thinking about it). […]

Arugula Salad with Burrata and Pomegranate-Balsamic Glaze

In an effort to spend more time with my nonna and help take some load off of her Christmas Eve prep, I suggested some of the girls of the family get together to help her make her homemade gnocchi. So we did, and it was so fun, but the lady is nuts. Even though we […]

Farro & Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash

Not that I’m complaining, but it seems that the world is skipping over Thanksgiving and going straight to Christmas these days. I’m guilty of it too and have found myself convincing my husband to start decking the halls with me in our home. Thankfully, he’s just as crazy about this time of year and we […]

Bacon-Wrapped Dates

Today I’m talking about bacon-wrapped dates because the holidays are among us and it’s time to bring out all of the warm and savory apps. Can I get a YUM?! My mom has been making these salty, sweet bites for years now and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed them over the years at our fall/winter gatherings. My […]

Healthy Cauliflower Rice Burrito Bowl

I’ve had to stay away from rice this entire pregnancy because it hasn’t settled well with me, which is a bummer because I’m a huge fan of brown rice. To top it off, rice (and rice flour) is in so many foods/dishes I like, my favorite being burrito bowls. Have you ever had a burrito […]

Blueberry, Lemon & Cream Crepes

In my opinion, one of the best flavors to enjoy during summertime is anything lemon-blueberry. The bright zest from a lemon combined with sweet, sugary blueberries is a killer combo. Both add such a nice bite to muffins, cakes, cookies and sweet breakfast dishes. Sad thing is, I haven’t enjoyed many lemon-blueberry treats this summer. […]

Cinnamon Sugar Square Marshmallow Treats

I’m not much of a traditionalist when it comes to food. There are certain dishes I’d never want to change, but for the most part, I find a lot of happiness trying meals and/or desserts that add unexpected ingredients or flavors to a recipe. It’s such an experience for my taste buds when I find […]

Homemade Greek Yogurt

My family has been enjoying Greek yogurt long before brands like Fage or Chobani hit stores in America. I love that it’s become a popular breakfast food and/or snack because it’s the only yogurt I’ll let touch my lips. Honest! My Yiayia used to make homemade yogurt and would send my mom home with a […]
