Brussels + Roasted Cauliflower Grapefruit Salad

Well hey there! Let me introduce you to the most epic brussels salad I've ever had. This delicious, hardy salad starts with shredded brussels sprouts, roasted cauliflower, and broiled grapefruit and is finished off with panko breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, toasted hazelnuts, and and easy homemade grapefruit vinegarette. I told you... epic. If you're already a salad lover, this one is for you, and if you don't- I bet this one sounds pretty interesting because it's not your "typical" salad. This salad is surprisingly filling, and when I first started making it I was thinking this isn't going to be enough! But it is. And it's best enjoyed right after you make it, so leftover salad wasn't something I was going for with this Brussels + Roasted Cauliflower

Mango Curry Noodle Bowls Sponsored by Dang Foods

Curry is something I need more of in my life. It's so simple, it's healthy, it tastes totally different from anything else (in a good way!), and it sure makes for some great leftovers (heck yeah to leftovers!). I've mostly only had curry with rice, so I decided to try curried noodles (noodles are like my go-to for everything), and these Mango Curry Noodle Bowls did not disappoint! Because this curry is so simple, and has minimal ingredients, I wanted to make sure I added the perfect toppings to give it that little extra oomph. That's where my friends from Dang Foods came in. Their coconut chips were the perfect topping and added just the right amount of crunch and sweetness to these Mango Curry Noodle Bowls.  Oh Dang that's good!

(No) Chicken Noodle Stew

Dear Fall, I am so totally into you right now. Summer did not sit too kindly with me- she was hot and humid and I just didn't enjoy her much this year. I've so been looking forward to making my favorite warming comfort foods, like this (No) Chicken Noodle Stew for example! It was a gloomy, rainy fall day and I was trying to decide on something easy and warm to make for dinner. My first thought was soup! It's totally soup season, yay! So I go through all the ingredients I remembered I have in my fridge to use up- also yay to using up produce before it goes bad! Onions- check. Carrots-check. Celery-check. Noodles-check. Having settled on making "chicken" noodle soup for dinner, you can imagine my disappointment when I didn't have nearly enough vegetable

Superfood “Coffee” Sponsored by New Chapter Vitamins

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of New Chapter, maker of whole-food vitamins & supplements. The opinions and text are all mine. The New Chapter product mentioned in this post was sent to me as a gift from New Chapter Vitamins to use in this recipe, thank you so much! It's true that coffee is one of the most popular food items in the world, well at least here in the US we would be lost without our precious coffee. I have to admit, I like it too. There's just something that is so comforting about a nice warm cup of coffee in the morning. But sad news for me, caffeine really isn't my friend *insert crying emoji here. So I drink decaf occasionally, and I do like it- but even that bothers me sometimes. I decided to try to make a "coffee" using

Pumpkin Carbonara with Shiitake “Bacon”

Do you love pasta? Do you love a simple 30-minute meal? Do you love mushrooms? And do you love pumpkin, but not the overbearing kind, like the subtle pumpkin flavor? If you answered yes, then you are certainly going to love this recipe.

Peach Cobbler Chia Pudding Sponsored by New Chapter Vitamins
