These Egg Roll Bowls are all of the delicious classic egg roll filling, without the junk!
I am so thrilled that it’s finally release day for my fabulous friend Gina, from Skinnytaste! Gina is beyond sweet, so genuine, and so talented!
Her new cookbook, Skinnytaste Fast and Slow, is now available in stores everywhere, and it is TRULY an amazing and beautiful resource. Gina’s hard work does not go unnoticed in this cookbook! All of the recipes are either cooked slow in the slow cooker, or are quick under 30 minute meals. My two favorite things!
I am so thrilled to share this recipe with you today. We devoured it so quickly!
Gina has a whole chapter on TACOS (my favorite), and recipes like Slow Cooker Lasagna Soup (page 53), Slow Cooker Maple Dijon Chicken Drumsticks (page 167), Slow Cooker Carne Desmecjada (page 195), Slow Cooker Vanilla Bean Pear Butter (page 291), and Slow Cooker Pumpkin Flan (page 298). I just cannot wait to get cooking!
Congratulations, Gina! Find her newest cookbook in stores everywhere books are sold, or on Amazon! It’s a must-buy!
These Grilled Fish Bowls with Garlic Scapes and Kale makes for the perfect summer meal in a bowl. Packed with flavor and fabulous ingredients, this dish is packed with everything you need for a delicious and nutritious lunch or dinner.
Last year was my first year of joining a local CSA and frequenting my new town’s farmers markets. I came home week after week with incredible amounts of produce, many of which at a loss of what to do with. (P.S. if you’re looking to save money eating organic, a CSA is an amazing resource).
I hate to say it, I wasted a lot last year. I often didn’t use up all of those more unique ingredients. But not this year.
This year, I’m teaming up with my fabulous friends Juli (from PaleOMG) and Cassy from Fed and Fit to bring you a recipe a week inspired by our CSAs and Farmer’s Market hauls! That’s right. Every week you’ll get THREE delicious recipes to inspire you to cook something new, try a new ingredient, or just enjoy that fresh local produce!
Part of my first haul!
If you’re looking for a CSA in your area, this website is a good resource on how to find one!
Everything is better in a bowl. Seriously! This week let’s use up some kale, garlic scapes, scallions, and cucumber!
Now, let’s see what my fabulous friends made this week!
October has me feeling all Fall! It makes me realize how much I truly love this season. The weather has been just right, and I am loving all of the Fall flavors popping up in my CSA! I purchased some amazing blanket scarfs, my boots are out and in use, and this past weekend we went apple picking! The foliage in New England is really starting to shine in only the way it can in New England! So beautiful.
Today is special. Not only am I bringing you my delicious (and easy) pumpkin soup, but my girlfriends and I have SIX total pumpkin recipes to get you through the next two months.
Can you taste that creamy goodness?
Let’s see what we have going on this month… Soup, pancakes, savory muffins, chia pudding, freezer fudge, and blondies.
Pumpkin, coconut milk and chia seeds are combined and topped with toasted coconut flakes and an almond butter drizzle to make a thick and creamy chia pudding that’s paleo-friendly, vegan and great for breakfast or as a snack.
Summer is coming to a close but it’s NOT over yet! For the next number of weeks you can be sure I’ll be doing tons of grilling and enjoying it every chance I get. This salad is loaded with perfectly grilled chicken, tons of grilled veggies (whatever vegetables you wish, really), and a delicious tomato-based vinaigrette dressing. It’s the perfect way to throw together dinner without turning the oven on!
Grilled veggies, perfectly flavored and grilled chicken, and my new favorite dressing… Dinner is SERVED!
Are you excited for the Fall, or holding on to the last bits of Summer?
Did you know that the first night of Hanukkah falls on Thanksgiving this year? That’s some exciting stuff over here. Especially when it comes to the food. Latkes, cranberry sauce, pumpkin desserts, cookies… I love the idea of the Thanksgiving + Hanukkah combination. Whether you celebrate the two or not, or whether prefer calling them potato latkes, pancakes, or fritters, this side dish will fly off your table (so make a lot!).
Last week my mom was in town just in time to try these sweet potato latkes paired with my homemade cranberry apple sauce (get ready for Tuesday). Of course I put a nice plate of these out for her and Mike to try, and the reviews were great! A huge hit all around. This week will be filled with Thanksgiving dishes, so stay tuned!
