If the words “stuffed” and “squash” in the title of this dish isn’t sweet music to your ears, then what if I throw in “chorizo” and “queso fresco”? If you’re anything like me, there’s a straight up symphony going on in your head (and maybe your stomach) right now. Whether Texas weather chooses to acknowledge […]

Southwest Stuffed Squash

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 […]

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 […]

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

This is like my LBD of kale salads. It’s so simple, low-maintenance, and a go-to when I don’t have a lot of time or ingredients. It hits all the right notes- the tangy lemon, sweet apple, spicy ginger, and crunchy kale can turn the hearts of even the most devout kale haters (my roommate is […]

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, […]
