Linguine with Roasted Cauliflower and Pesto Sauce

Hello and happy January! In the season of new year’s resolutions, new habits, self-care, and personal growth, I am going to start posting more often. This means trying more new recipes, being creative, and doing lots of research. It also allows me to share my love for good (generally) healthy food that nourishes the body…

In a large mixing bowl, toss together…

This recipe is very filling and a perfect dish for the beginning of autumn and end of summer. We will definitely be enjoying this one throughout the season!

This is an incredibly flavorful dish that’s pretty easy to make, for anyone who has no experience cooking Indian food. There are a couple of special spices, but most of the ingredients you probably already are familiar with and may have in your pantry already. Note: This recipe is spicy! I would say this is…

Moroccan Tagine

This is one of our favorite recipes because of the bold spices and memories we have from Morocco. I have yet to invest in an actual tagine (the dome-shaped dish it’s named for), this dish can easily be made in a stock pot. Although I’ve already shared a tagine recipe, this one is a little…

Fusilli Pasta with Romaine, Chickpeas, and White Wine Broth

This quick recipe is super easy to throw together on a weeknight and has just enough kick to it to keep you wanting more! If you’re not a big fan of spicy, either reduce or eliminate the red chili flakes. If you do choose to eliminate them, you may want to compensate with black pepper….
