Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

This is seriously without a doubt one of my new favorite recipes. These are the vegetarian version of regular Buffalo Chicken Wings but just as delish. I’m not a fan of imitation foods, but these are a success story on their own. Also, I’m not sure how much healthier these are for you than the … Continue reading

Skinny Crock Pot Taco Chili

Skinny Crock Pot Taco Chili

In the spirit of my week long Mexican vacation, I give you: Skinny Taco Chili. I was inspired to make this because a couple weeks ago I stumbled across an idea for taco soup. I took that idea and ran with it. I made this with stuff just lying in my pantry, screaming to be … Continue reading

Avocado Egg Rolls

Avocado Egg Rolls

Okay, this recipe combines the two loves of my culinary life when I’m feeling ballsy: avocados and deef fried things. I’ve been told these are similar to avocado rolls at The Cheesecake Factory, but unfortunately I’ve never been there to devour those. These actually aren’t that bad for you. Sure, they sound like a fatty … Continue reading

Craving Mexican food with no pre-made tortillas on-hand? What will you do!? Make your own, that’s what! I recently posted a Food Bucket List and realized I’ve been doing a crappy job at actually knocking anything off of said list. My pre-made tortilla shortage kind of sealed the deal that I needed to make a … Continue reading

Garlic Smashed Red Skins

Garlic Smashed Red Skins

Ahh potatoes, my favorite starch. I was getting a little sick of the classic mashed potato and gravy scenario, so I decided to switch it up a bit. I’m a huge fan of red skins, but I find they’re always kind of bland. How could I wake them up? Season them with garlic and smash … Continue reading

Croque-Madame: Not Your Average Sandwich

Croque-Madame: Not Your Average Sandwich

Bonjour, mon amis! The name Croque-Madame sounds oh so French-y! Truthfully, the name is really more complicated than making this awesome sandwich. Simply put, its really just a super fancy sounding (and tasting) ham and cheese sandwich with an egg on top. Don’t be fooled though, because its anything but average. I’ve actually been fortunate … Continue reading

Maple Mustard Glazed Salmon

Maple Mustard Glazed Salmon

Now I know a lot of people are not salmon fans for one reason or another. If you’re one of these people, I dare you to give it another shot. I think the problem with seafood haters (yeah, we’ll call them haters) is that they really haven’t had fish prepared well. Not to toot my … Continue reading
