I’m not quite sure how it happened, but I blinked and summer is over. The past 3 months seemingly flashed before my eyes, and next thing I knew, it had been quite some time since I had made it out to the Dallas Farmer’s Market. With traveling, getting into the rhythm of a new job […]

Lasagna Stuffed Eggplant

Does a craving for the holidays ever just hit you HARD? This past week I haven’t been feeling well, the weather’s been kind of gloomy, and all I can think about how cozy and comforting it’s going to feel when I get to go home for Thanksgiving. I had to do something to ease the […]

I don’t know about you, but I have been loving zucchini more than usual this summer. It’s such a versatile veggie- add it to any stir fry, make noodles, or hide it in your smoothie for an extra dose of filling fiber. And the best part is, the summer abundance means it’s extra cheap. That’s […]

Smoky Chicken Tortilla-less Tacos with Mango Salsa

Consider this Shrimp & Grits’ fancier, more health-conscious cousin from California. I went to the beach with my family recently, and this was my first time trying scallops. Like fish, they’re nice and light, but with a bit more bite like shrimp. This dish still has all the flavor of its traditional southern comfort food […]

Seared Scallops with Spicy Cauliflower Grits & Greens

The fact that this recipe is free of grains, dairy, soy, nightshades, legumes, and nuts yet still feels so hearty and flavorful completely amazes me! Plus it tastes just a good leftover.
