by Chrissy

Roasted Veggie Salad with Lemon Basil Vinaigrette_LYK1

Salads are usually healthy go-to meals. But we as we have learned from restaurants and fast food places fessing up to the calorie count and ingredients, we know that salads aren’t always the healthiest of options out there; the culprit being fatty dressing and processed, chemical-laden ingredients.

Bleh.

How to remedy this? Easy. Get to the store, buy some fresh ingredients and produce and make your own salad and dressing. Boom. Case closed.

Funny looking vegetable, isn’t it? I promise it’s a cauliflower though. I wasn’t quite sure how to maintain it’s beauty once it was all chopped up so I decided to try roasting it whole and I have to say, Chris and I have decided it’s our new favorite preparation for cauliflower of any color.

Purple, orange, white, or green, we want it poached then roasted, and dipped in a creamy, tangy, cheesy, sauce.

Now, I never cook with butter. It’s not really intentional, it’s just that olive oil is the go to since it sits on the counter near the stove. These … Read more...

by Lauren

So, this salad (or salsa? Or dip?) has been a huge hit around these parts lately. I’ve now taken it to a dinner party as a salad and camping as a salsa/dip and in both cases, the bowl came home empty.

After eating ham, cheese, and bread, every day on our honeymoon we craved vegetables. Just a tiny carrot, a leaf of kale, a slice of a beet – really, anything without carbs involved would have been totally acceptable.

Sweet Potato & Broccoli Veggie Patties

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.

And I bet I’m not the only one who held this unspoken requirement.

I’ve grown up since then and dearly love my veggies, raw and plain or cooked and seasoned. Although I don’t need the cheese, it sure makes my heart happy! These patties are savory, slightly sweet and … Read more...
