White Balsamic Cranberry Sauce

You remember that bottle of white balsamic vinegar that’s just chilling in the back of your pantry because you bought it for that one salad dressing that one time? Well, it’s your lucky day because I have something incredible for you to make that will utilize your lonely vinegar. This sauce has the classic holiday…

Jalapeño Chimichurri Sauce

If you add one recipe to your culinary arsenal this summer, it should be this sauce. I’m not even kidding. The light and fresh herbs plus a mildly spicy jalapeño kick and a wallop of salty garlic… it’s literally the perfect companion for EVERYTHING! Fish. Yes. Shredded Pork. Yes. Grilled Steak. Yes. Eggs and Bacon. Yes….

Chicken Nuggets with Dairy-Free Ranch

This is a little play on a past recipe. I’m sure some people prefer chicken nuggets to chicken fingers… Add some sweet potato fries and you’ve got a very-kid friendly recipe! Chicken Nuggets 4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs 1 c. potato starch 1 egg 1/2 c. red palm oil or coconut oil garlic powder salt…

Curried Broccoli Salad

Deli counter salads are always so yummy, but they are often pretty expensive (Yes, I’m talking to you Whole Foods) so it’s a great idea to whip some up at home. It’s also a wonderful side dish to bring to summer potlucks, BBQ’s, or parties! Curried Broccoli Salad 6 c. broccoli florets, broken up into smaller pieces…

Sesame Honey Dip

Happy Spring! Here’s a delicious no-bake recipe for a fresh raw veggie dip or sauce. This was an “on-the-fly” creation. I needed a tasty sauce for some coconut shrimp and the inspiration just hit me! Lucky for me, I had all the necessary ingredients right in my fridge. This is super easy to make and…

Tahini Lamb Burgers

I love Burgers. Of all kinds. I’ve even had an alligator burger before. This is not that exotic, but it’s out of most people’s beef/turkey burger comfort zone. If you’ve never had lamb before, a burger is good way to experiment with this yummy meat option. Ground lamb is relatively easy to find, inexpensive (compared…

Chicken Fingers with Honey Mustard Dip

I’ve been a bad, bad blogger. This month has been a bit intense for me so I’ve neglected the website in order to focus on more pressing matters. And even though only a couple people read this, I do miss sharing and posting things here in my lovely corner of the inter-webs. So I’m back…

Bacon Jam

Dude. Bacon Jam. It exists and it’s AMAZE BALLS! I mean really, sugar and bacon in a spreadable form has to be some sort of window into the heavenly realm. You know, the one with angels and golden streets and pearly gates… It’s bacon perfection. This divine condiment can be used for any and all…

Avocado Mayonnaise

Delicious, just delicious. That’s what this stuff is. I mean seriously, who doesn’t love avocado? It’s the most perfect food. It should be added to everything. If I started my own eatery, it would be called Avocado… or maybe Aguacate (avo in Spanish; so fun to say!) Avocado Mayonnaise 2 egg yolk 3/4 c. olive…

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…
