Is it just me, or does it feel like we’re in some odd purgatory season between summer and fall? I’m already starting to see pumpkin flavored foods and drinks hit the shelves, but I would probably sweat out cinnamon if I tried drinking a PSL while my dashboard reads 103. And nothing feels right about […]

Pork Chops + Purple Pea Succotash

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 […]

Spinach and Turkey Meatballs + Zucchini Pasta Primavera

I am officially partnering with the Dallas Farmer’s Market to bring you specially curated recipes using fresh, seasonal produce from your local partners. I’m so excited to learn more about seasonal produce together and bring you the stories behind each vendor at […]

Watermelon Shrimp Ceviche + Exciting Announcement

It’s SUMMER which means all the peaches are ripe, sweet, and begging to make their way into your dinner menu. And just in time for the 4th! How can you resist?! This play on classic caprese (kah-preh-say) salad is such a stunning yet simple main dish to serve at a backyard barbecue or on a […]

Peach Caprese Chicken

I am so excited to share some of the recipes from the new Abundantly More Magazine created by a sweet friend as a way to showcase the profound Gospel implications in simple, everyday life. I got to share a bit of my food philosophy in the magazine… “Any place there is joy, there is God. And […]

Smoky Chicken Tortilla-less Tacos with Mango Salsa

I guess you could say I put the lime in the coconut. I never quite understood what that means, but I can see why it’s a song lyric, because the creamy coconut with the tangy lime is the perfect combo. But what’s even better is this comes together in only 30 minutes, requires minimal ingredients, […]

Creamy Coconut-Lime Chicken Stir-Fry

For some reason, when I am having company, I always decide to try something new. This is probably as close as I come to “living life on the edge” if I’m being honest. But where there’s risk, there’s a chance at reward, and let me tell you- this dish was a crowd pleaser (especially since […]

Lamb Kofta with Mint Chimichurri and Pea & Mint Salad

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

When you can’t decide between burgers or tacos, don’t! These little sliders have all the best flavors of tacos in hearty, juicy burger form. Forgoing the bun not only lightens up the dish, but allows the meat to really stand on its own. And the sweetness of the roasted sweet potato rounds paired with the […]

Taco Burger Sliders

This is seriously the most satisfying soup. The spice of the curry paste is perfectly balanced by the creamy coconut milk, and the textures of the soft sweet potatoes with the slightly crunchy kale leaves nothing to be desired. Makes about 6 servings! Coconut Curry Chicken Soup Ingredients: 2 lbs. chicken tenders 1 T. ghee […]
