stovetop brussels sprouts on a plate with roasted chicken and mashed potatoes

Stovetop Brussels Sprouts

So, I didn’t know I liked brussels sprouts until I got old enough to cook them myself. It’s pretty difficult to feel happy about eating bland, bitter, boiled sprouts. This stovetop recipe is quick, easy, and full of flavor, with very few ingredients. It only takes 15 minutes to whip these bad boys up. Which, […]

Air Fryer Tofu

I have loved tofu ever since middle school, when I suddenly became a vegetarian. Although I’m no longer a vegetarian, I like to keep crispy tofu in the house to add easy protein and texture to a whole multitude of dishes. Besides, it’s fun to prove people wrong when they’re adamant that they don’t like […]

Air Fryer Sweet Potato Tacos

At this point if you don’t already know that I love tacos, you are not paying attention. Admittedly, I have historically relied heavily on chicken tacos.

Veggie Egg White Omelet

Asparagus as a Side Dish

Honestly, I never get sick of eating asparagus. It is a substantial vegetable with a lot to give and when roasted, it can be drool worthy. Granted, this is coming from the woman who told her wedding caterer that she’d be just as happy only eating the asparagus and brussels sprouts they made and forgoing […]

broccoli pine nut pasta served in a bowl.

Broccoli Pine Nut Pasta

This dish brings me back to high school. It was one of my favorite meals that my, now, mother-in-law made. This version of broccoli pine nut pasta is a little different from the dinner’s I enjoyed at her home, but it is just as comforting. It is a cheesy, crunchy, broccoli-filled, mess of noodles that […]

Creamy Sun Dried Tomato Pasta

My father-in-law makes an amazing tomato cream pasta dish – it is dear to my heart…and my stomach. In high school, it was just about the only meal that I requested from him, despite the fact that he is an excellent cook. I imagine he probably got sick of my constant demand, so I learned […]
