Roasted Butternut Squash Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette

This is one of my favorite salads I’ve ever made! The roasted butternut squash used in this recipe is delicious, and so is the apple cider vinaigrette (which suits many other salads!) I forgot to take a picture of it on it’s own, but it is included in the picture on this post, along with…

Sweet Potato Goat Cheese Frittata

Frittata (baked egg omelette) is one of my favorite brunch/breakfast foods. This recipe (inspired by Country Living) is my go to for when I have large amounts of spinach or kale that I want to use before it spoils. Here’s how I make this Sweet Potato Kale Frittata INGREDIENTS 6 large eggs (I used pasture…

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

Right now the best soup I have EVER made. Thank you ginabnutrition for this recipe (found on her instagram). The fall flavors of this soup are just incredible, and I love that this soup uses seasonal ingredients. I made a few adjustments based on ingredients I had at home to her original recipe (adjustments will…

I was out of bread at home and looking for a homemade bread recipe that also used garlic (which I had a surplus of), and found this DELICIOUS garlic knots recipe from Pretty.Simple.Sweet. They were fluffy, flavorful, and buttery, just how I like them! I didn’t have a standing mixer, so I used my dough mixer…

Kale Walnut Pesto

I’ve had Chef Chloe’s 5- ingredient Vegan Pesto saved in recipes I’ve wanted to try, and decided to make it yesterday. I didn’t love the final product, so I added an additional cup of kale, as well as ingredients inspired by Easy 5- minute Vegan Pesto from the Minimalist Baker. Pesto is a good amount for…

Oil-Free Roasted Eggplant (Two ways)

Likely due to my middle eastern background, eggplant is one of my favorite foods. I’ve been seeing different methods of roasting eggplant without oil, and decided to do an experiment using two similarly sized eggplants from the same store to figure out which method I liked best. I tried two methods: one using the stove…

Superfood Roasted Salmon

I found this recipe from on the @cottercrunch instagram page and knew I had to try it! I had a surplus of blueberries and basil from my local farmers market that I wanted to use last night before they spoiled, so I thought this was the perfect recipe to make. According to Cotter Crunch this…
