Burst Tomato and Zucchini Spaghetti with Avocado Sauce

We are living in the deep of winter. Deep, dark, frozen winter. We’re talking multiples of ten below zero where your hands get frostbite within like two seconds of being exposed to the air. Why/how/why? This is exactly why I am channeling the warm vibes by bringing avocado, zucchini, and tomatoes into my life in […]

Skillet Zucchini and Yellow Squash

Considering this is the side dish we eat four out of five times during the late summer months, I feel like it’s time to share my feelings about the gloriousness of sautéed zucchini and squash and then leave you to get on with your day and life. Basically, it’s easy (10-15 minutes max). It literally […]

ONE-POT RATATOUILLE SPAGHETTI

Quick, easy and healthy dinners are the best. Preferably something that takes under 30 minutes, requires minimal preparation and washing up and is made with wholesome, healthy ingredients.

Roasted Vegetables Recipe

This roasted vegetables recipe uses the best of Autumn vegetables; creamy sweet butternut squash, tender yukon potatoes, juicy zucchini, the sweetest carrots and crisp bell peppers. Mixing the veggies works because the tougher veggies are roasted 10 minutes longer than everything else. You can also change up the veggies. The flavor combination is lovely and […]

ROASTED VEGETABLES

One of my favorite ways to eat and make vegetables. Roasted vegetables bring out sweet flavor notes of veggies and they’re infused with the olive oil you drizzle it with. It has been raining here for 6 days straight. It’s supposed to clear up today and we’re supposedly finally going to see some sun. The […]

Autumn Minestrone Soup

I’ve always loved minestrone soup so seeing as it’s fall I decided to make a minestrone filled with the veggies of the season. This soup is incredibly hearty and filling even though it’s vegetarian. It’s a lot of dicing since there are so many veggies but you can take short cuts and use some pre-cut […]
