Chickpea Salad

Garbanzo beans.  Gram.  Bengal gram.  Egyptian pea.  Ceci.  Chana.  Kabuli chana.  Chickpeas. Did you have any idea that this little legume had so many names?  Yeah, me either.  What I do know, however, is that they are quite delicious and pack a hefty nutritional punch.     Chickpeas, though small, are mighty.  Just half a cup boasts 20% of your daily protein, fiber, folate, iron and  phosphorus.  And offer a substantial amount of thiamin, vitamin B6, magnesium and zinc. But wait, because the good news doesn’t stop there.  Chickpeas taste great on their own – I... read more

Spiralized Zucchini with Pesto and Roasted Tomatoes

Summer is such an incredible time for fresh fruits and vegetables. I know that with each season comes a new round of seasonal produce, however, in my humble opinion, summer has got a real lock on the market. Let’s think about this for a moment … there’s watermelon, tomatoes, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, squash, asparagus, green beans, peppers, plums, nectarines, peaches, figs, avocados, lychee, honeydew, cauliflower, beets and corn!     The crazy part? That’s not even a complete list!  Hah! Want to hear a funny story real quick? Yeah, who doesn’t love a... read more

Shrimp, Avocado & Tomato Salad

  I don’t know about your location, but things are really heating up here in NYC.  Saturday started out delightful and then all of a sudden it was 85° and humid as can be!  Don’t get me wrong, I love the summer and warm weather but I tend to be more of a 70-75° type of lady.  My main goal is really the ability to walk somewhere without feeling like I need to shower again as soon as I arrive at my destination.   You know what I’m talking about here!  We’ve all been there!   With the rise in temperature, comes my desire to eat lighter, brighter, more... read more

Avocado Toast [4 ways]

I have a new obsession.  You know when you discover something new and you HAVE TO tell everyone about it?  Yeah, that’s the stage I am in … so please, allow me to share on some non food related stuff while partaking in food pictures.  🙂     Google Play Music.  It’s the best, Jerry!  THE BEST! If you are a music lover [like me] you really need to start exploring the fantastic-ness that is Google Play Music.  It’s similar to Pandora; however, the way to choose the stations they have really appeals to my childlike sense of curiosity. You see, when you go to the... read more

Roasted Carrot Ginger Soup

Just try to convince me that a food with that color isn’t bursting with nutritious goodness … go ahead, I dare you! Let me give you a heads up … it ain’t possible.  I flat out won’t believe you.  And this soup is more than what meets the eye!  Not only are there carrots and ginger … obviously … but there is fresh grated TURMERIC, too!  This was my first time ever cooking with turmeric and it TOTALLY ROCKED! There is something that I love about cooking with new foods, especially new foods that are kind of odd or typically outside of my usual... read more

Chicken Bone Broth

Remember that savory, tasty, whole roasted chicken from last week?  Well, part two’s comin’ your way! Warm and healing Chicken Bone Broth.     A few weeks ago, I made this Chocolate Mousse with the help of gelatin.  In the world of health and nutrition, gelatin is so hot right now.  Many people are choosing to incorporate gelatin into their daily routine because they are not getting it naturally.  Gelatin is composed of collagen, amino acids and proline found in animal bones, fibrous tissues and organs, which, let’s face it, at least in my circle of friends, are... read more

Lemon & Garlic Whole Roasted Chicken

Here’s a riddle for you … What has two legs, wings, and answers the question, “What’s for dinner?”     That is right!  Lemon & Garlic Whole Roasted Chicken!  You are too good!  😉 Maybe not the best riddle in the books but, you know, it’s hard to make chicken funny.  It’s just not a very funny food.  And, what the riddle doesn’t quite emphasize enough is that this chicken provided not 1, not 2, but 3 dinners for Nate and I!  3!  I’m not really sure why we don’t roast a chicken weekly!  It’s inexpensive, versatile,... read more

Mango Pulled Pork

Put on your seatbelt and prepare your taste buds because we’re talkin’ savory today. Yup, Mango Pulled Pork, that … wait for it … is done in the crock-pot!!!  (It’s best if you imagine this in a singing voice or with some sort of dramatic music.)     But first, a quick history lesson.  Today’s topic: Megan’s barbecue preferences. It’s typically not my thing.   It’s typically never been my thing.  (Insert gasps.) I know, I know, that’s basically un-American but I find it sticky and 9 times out of 10 the amount of food I get is not worth the amount of effort applied.... read more
