Green Beans with Almond Brown-Butter & Mandarins

by Lauren


This weekend our refrigerator was nearly as empty as it was when we moved in. The only non-condiment item left in there was a pound of green beans which inspired this tasty side dish. After leaving the Trader Joe’s with a surplus of Satsuma mandarins I decided to combine the two.

These patties. They are deeeelicious!

Broccoli and cheese reminds me of childhood. I bet that’s because I probably wouldn’t eat my broccoli without some a ton of cheese melted over top.

Double Chocolate Strawberry & Zucchini Muffins

by Chrissy

Dying for a chocolatey treat without all the guilt? Aren’t we all…

Well then, I’d like to introduce you to this little chocolate-chocolate chip muffin, unlike any other.

Butter-less, oil-less, fruitfilled and veggie-filled… I really don’t think you could ask a an edible muffin to be any healthier.

The applesauce, zucchini and strawberries, keep this muffin cakey and moist, and add really great texture. However, I won’t try to lie to you, the melted chocolate chips don’t suck … Read more...
