Quick and Crispy Lacinato Kale Chips

A “healthier” change-up from standard potato chips and bakes in under 10 minutes! Kale chips have become increasingly popular over the past number of years. Admittedly, I have tried more kale chips I’ve disliked than ones I’ve actually enjoyed haha! Especially because when I have a kale chip, I expect them to have that same crisp “crunch” that…

“Bread-less” Banana Strawberry Breakfast Bread Pudding: Eggs, Bananas, Cinnamon, Vanilla Extract, Baking Powder, Fresh Strawberries and Whipped Cream

I’ll be completely honest – this recipe was created from a disaster. And that disaster was my attempt to make a solely egg and banana-based pancake that I soon found out was somewhat impossible to flip/keep intact. After tasting the pieces of the no-longer pancake, I found that it reminded me of something else: bread pudding. The consistency…

Quick and Easy Vegetarian Crunchwrap Supreme: Large Tortilla Shell, Stuffed with a Refried Bean and Barley ~ Lentil Mixture, Topped with Cheddar Cheese, a Tostada, Mixed Greens, Tomato and Plain Greek Yogurt

This recipe is throwing it back to college and my love of Crunchwrap Supremes from Taco Bell! I had never had a Crunchwrap Supreme before college until a friend introduced me and I loved it. That being said, I haven’t eaten at Taco Bell in a SUPER long time. I do eat a lot differently than I used to…

Colorful Raw Veggie “Tacos”: Lettuce “Taco Shells”, Topped with Hummus, Broccoli and Carrot Slaw, Cucumbers, Sweet Peppers, and Rainbow Carrots, Drizzled with a Spicy Chipotle Sauce

My boyfriend’s exact words after giving him one of these was “Why are you trying to disguise the fact this is actually just a salad?”, followed by: “These are actually pretty good!” Hahaha! That definitely made me laugh. I like to get a bit creative with my food options, especially when it comes to incorporating…

Dark Chocolate Chickpea, Tahini and Peanut Butter Candy Easter Eggs: Chickpeas, Tahini, Peanut Butter, Maple Syrup, Almond Extract and Vanilla Extract, Blended to Creamy Perfection and Dipped in Dark Chocolate

I was never a huge “candy lover”. In fact, growing up my brother would end up eating most (if not all) of my candy because I showed minimal interest in it. Which is surprising, because I do have a HUGE sweet tooth – hand me any dessert and I’m there. One candy I did enjoy…

Bright Rainbow Bell Pepper Brunch: Eggs Over Easy in Bell Pepper Slices, Topped with Fontina Cheese and Sprinkled with Black Pepper and Parsley, Drizzled with Hot Sauce, and Served with Seed Toast

Spring is (technically) here, but it doesn’t feel like it! Especially with another snow storm making its way through (we are NINE inches and counting so far here!). So, I decided I wanted something colorful to brighten the day and crafted this bell pepper brunch tray! It’s the perfect balance between sweet, spicy, and savory,…

Irish Hunter’s Pie: Base Layer of Mushrooms, Peas, Carrots, Broccoli, Onion, and Garlic, Middle Layer of Ground Venison, Topped with Creamy Mashed Potatoes and Cheddar Cheese, Drizzled with Gravy

If you are going to make anything this weekend to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, make this Hunter’s Pie. Granted, I know most of you will not have ground venison on hand (I can thank my Dad for that), but there are many other meats you can substitute or you can even do a meatless version!…
