On The Side

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. There are just so many ways to use it. Something I really enjoy is finding inspiration from eating out or traveling, especially […]

Seasonal Sweet Corn Elote

If there is one food I could never get tired of eating, it’s strawberries. I just adore them, and it’s rare that I go a day without having some for breakfast. But honestly, they are SO much more flavorful when they’re in season, so when they made their debut at the Dallas Farmer’s Market, I […]

Chili Lime Salmon with Strawberry Mint Salsa

If there is one thing I have learned through studying nutrition, it is that no one diet or lifestyle is the “best.” Our bodies are all wildly different in their nutritional needs, and we have the freedom to tailer our diet to fit our specific needs. As long as whole, fresh foods from the earth […]

Vegan Spring Greens Pasta Salad

Does a craving for the holidays ever just hit you HARD? This past week I haven’t been feeling well, the weather’s been kind of gloomy, and all I can think about how cozy and comforting it’s going to feel when I get to go home for Thanksgiving. I had to do something to ease the […]

Seasonal Roasted Pumpkin and Brussels

This cold front hit Texas just in time for pears and apples to make their debut at Dallas Farmer’s Market this weekend. And when I say cold front, I mean it got below 80 degrees. But nonetheless, I was rejoicing at the hint of crispness in the air. With featuring two of my favorite fruits, […]

Toast to Apple + Pear Season

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 […]

Watermelon Shrimp Ceviche + Exciting Announcement

Have you ever tried to lure someone into coming to your party by telling them you were serving canned tuna? I sure hope not. But tell them you’re serving tapenade on crostini, and they may not know what language you’re speaking, but they’ll come if for no other reason but curiosity. You can whip up […]

Tuna Tapenade Cucumber Crostini

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

My mom says- and I quote- “this is the best guacamole I’ve ever had.” Now I know some of you are diehard traditional guac fans, and I completely respect that- why fix what isn’t broken, right? But if you’re feeling a little crazy, these few little tweaks just set it over the top. It’s such […]
