Charred Rapini with Italian Sausage

Rapini or broccoli rabe? What do you call it? I grew up always calling it rapini and was very confused to learn that there was another name for the bitter green I’ve grown to love so much over the years. I’m used to eating it the way my Nonna prepares it. She boils it in […]

Beet, Goat Cheese & Farro Salad with a Basil Vinaigrette

There have been several people who have asked what my biggest craving has been this pregnancy and it’s been hard for me to think of one because I currently love eating everything in sight. With Peyton, it was peanut butter and with Emory it was fruit snacks. Both were pretty serious cravings, which is why […]

Panko, Lemon & Parmesan Brussel Sprouts

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I’m super excited to start a day after being sick with a cold for a few days. I can’t remember the last time I just sat around and did absolutely nothing, but I was able to this weekend and I almost feel like I didn’t know what to do with myself! Shout […]

Kale & Apple Toddler Smoothie

I’ve found that the easiest way to get kids to eat veggies is in smoothie form. Peyton will usually eat any veggie we give her and often asks to eat them raw (she’s something else), but Emory has a select group of veggies he will eat and others kind of have to be “hidden” in […]

Rainbow Greek Yogurt Bowl

A little fun fact about me: I was Dorothy in my middle school’s production of Wizard of Oz in sixth grade. It was by far the highlight of my childhood and really sparked my love for music and singing even more. My love runs deep for the Wizard of Oz and all things Judy Garland, […]

Sauteed Broccoli Rabe

Growing up half Italian, I’ve had a ton of pasta. A TON. My mom would make it, my aunts would make it and of course, my Nonna would make it. To this day, every family get together has some sort of pasta on the menu. Lasagna, manicotti, pasta with sauce, pasta with ricotta, ravioli and […]

Spaghetti Squash Cacio e Pepe

Last week, my husband and I had a well overdue date night just the two of us and we indulged. There was no carb left behind. We rolled out of there like two human-sized gnocchi. The restaurant we went to is known for their assortment of small plates and entrees and encourages parties to share […]

Brussel Sprout & Kale Salad with Maple Tahini Dressing

I am constantly on the hunt for a good salad. Sometimes when carbs and cheese take over my life, it’s nice to get a break and make healthy choices. I said sometimes, okay? When I meet a good salad, I never ever forget it. I still remember the first salad that rocked my world – […]

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). […]

Autumn Trail Mix

I’m a huge grazer. Snacks are my favorite and while I’ve been pregnant, I’ve snacked on everything under the sun. Sometimes I’ll crave rich chocolate, and other times I’ll want a Caesar salad (I had both yesterday by the way, thanks to Whole Foods). While I take pride in being a snacker, one thing’s for […]
