Three words: sweet potato salad. Crazy, right?! Like, is it cold mashed potatoes? Kind of. But in the best way and I swear you’ll love it.
Before you bypass this sweet potato salad recipe, hear me out. If you don’t like regular potato salad, you’re in luck! This side dish is completely different than what you’re probably imagining: no hard-boiled eggs or mayonnaise, which can both be a turnoff to some people. Instead, this fall-inspired side is basically mashed white sweet potatoes dotted with celery, red onion, dried cranberries and finished off with some fresh thyme leaves. Yes, you read that right: sweet potatoes! It’s an indescribable, tasty dish, so I hope you’ll try it yourself! Continue reading →
I love a good egg bake, and since going gluten- and dairy-free frittatas are always my go-to. These mini frittatas are super fun to serve when you have guests, or to make ahead of time to heat up in the microwave throughout the week.
Egg dishes are so versatile because you can really add whatever you have on-hand. I love to make a giant batch of my signature roasted sweet potatoes to eat for breakfast during the week, so naturally I had some to throw into this recipe.
Picnics are my favorite. Sunrises are also at the top of my list of things that are rad. Eric and I try to do a special picnic at least a few times each summer (in fact he proposed to me after one of our picnics!), and we realized that in our nearly 8 years of being together, we had never seen a sunrise together. So we made it a sunrise picnic breakfast!
I’ve watched many a sunrise with my best friend, who happened to live just one neighborhood away from mine while we were growing up. We’d plan to get up early, bring coffee (it was mostly creamer, actually) and spend the first waking hours of the day together watching the sunrise and talking about life. For that reason, sunrises are extra special to me.
I have a lot of excuses for not posting very much this summer. But I hate excuses, so I’ll only share one (below) because it’s relevant to this site! One thing I don’t hate: sweet potato hash. I’m currently obsessed to the point where I eat it every morning for breakfast!
Yes, I’m a vegetarian. But I’m also human and I miss bacon sometimes. Luckily, I’m perfectly happy with a couple facon bacon recipes I’ve found on the internet! When I started my lectin-free diet, I decided I needed to quickly come up with a recipe for tempeh bacon that fit so I wouldn’t miss out on that familiar taste.
I’m always on the hunt for refreshing summer drink recipes, especially when I can use the best in-season fruit! This watermelon cooler is so easy and delicious and it’s not overly sweet like so many other fruity cocktails.
The best way to make sure your abundant cucumber bounty doesn’t go bad is to make them into refrigerator pickles! They last for months and get better as they hang out in your fridge. In my mind pickles go with everything: on burgers, in sandwiches, on an appetizer platter and my favorite: straight from the jar.
