For Mother’s Day weekend, although I wasn’t able to be with my Momma, I know she would have loved these tasty wraps. The smokey roasted turkey, and the sweet and tangy spiced apple butter spread remind me a little bit like the holidays and cooking in the kitchen together. The creamy brie and the crisp apple are the perfect fillings.

Spring has sprung! And it’s gloomy, drizzling, and cold in San Diego. Cold is of course relative at 63 degrees but either way, the last few weeks of winter were spent laying on the beach so Spring has yet to impress me.

Rain or not, I will say that I’m extremely excited for the new in-season fruits and vegetables. Asparagus has been ridiculously expensive so I’m happy to see that price drop. I was also loaded up with greens last … Read more...

It’s fragrant, toasty and has such a warm and inviting personality.

In dressings and sauces, it is such a delight. Yes, it can be a little high on the calorie scale, but a little goes a long way, so as long as you mix it with other oils, vinegars, and flavors, it evens out.

Before I realized how easy it was to prep healthy salads for the week, Lauren and I would occasionally buy a salad or two from Trader Joe’s as a treat or when we had a busy week and knew we needed to take a healthy shortcut.

I’m never really all that impressed with store-bought pre-made salads (unless they are from Whole Foods, which is unfortunate for the wallet), but there was one that I just loved. After eating this salad … Read more...

Blackberry Gorgonzola Salad w Mixed Berry Vinaigrette_LYK6

It’s FRIDAY! We made it! You deserve a cookie. I know I do. This week has been straight up grueling. I am fairly positive I have 4 jobs right now. It’s only a season of transition so I’m trekking, but I’m excited for the day when I can streamline all of it into one.

You could probably tell by the pics, but a lot of berries are involved in the making of this fresh and healthy salad. I guess another … Read more...
