Clean Almond Joy Bars

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for a hump day/afternoon sugar boost! Seriously, munch on one of these and try not to jet out the door and run around the block 5 times. It’s amazing how sensitive our bodies can become to sugar when we limit our consumption of the sweet stuff. Even during my pregnancy,…

Basil Cream Meatloaf with Balsamic Drizzle

  Is there any possible way to take a good picture of meatloaf? I mean, even on a good day, it still just looks like a brick of smushed food matter. Pictures notwithstanding, this dish is actually really delicious. Using white meat to make meatloaf is a tricky proposition (even trickier than taking its picture) because…

Kid-Friendly Breakfasts

I remember school mornings being rushed and chaotic… I also remember cereal. Lots and lots of cereal. Honestly, I don’t blame my mom. Cereal is fast, easy, and kids love it. There’s barely any dishes to clean, especially if you’ve taught your little ones to rinse and load a dishwasher. Unfortunately, in these health-conscious times, we…

Chicken with Green Mole

I’ve been super LAME about posting lately. It’s not because I don’t want to… it’s because the month of April (into May) has been craze balls. Lots of things smashed into a few weeks of time. Between work, my husband’s graduation, wedding stuff for my in-laws, and moving to San Clemente it’s been pretty hard…

Cilantro Pistachio Pesto

This one is a revival from the archives of The Clean Plate. This pesto never fails to impress! For example, I just recently used it for my husband’s graduation party. Believe me when I tell you that 20 lbs of chicken slathered in this delicious and beautiful sauce does not disappoint. Check out these happy…
