I am notorious for bringing the one green thing in a sea of beige on the holiday table. And guess what? It’s always a hit. Don’t get me wrong, I am all about the breads and potatoes and stuffing, but I enjoy a fresh seasonable salad just the same. Plus the colors of this salad […]

Cider-Spiced Salad

Summer corn has made its grand entry, and just in time for the first official day of Summer! To me, the sight of these husks is permission to unleash all the warm-weather dishes.

Keep as a side, or add protein […]

Though you can’t expect the chewy texture of rice, this does the trick without all the starch. Creamy Coconut Cauliflower Rice Ingredients: ½ tablespoon coconut […]

Creamy Coconut Cauliflower Rice

Quite possibly the ultimate summer dish. I can’t tell you how many times I made this last summer with my neighbor’s fresh peaches. The sweet peaches and blueberries pair perfectly with the tangy maple dijon dressing, and the richness from the goat cheese and avocado team up with the heartiness of the grain to bring […]
