Garlic Scape Pesto: Celebrating Summer Produce

When Summer rolls around I get super excited because for a food lover like me, it’s all about the fun fresh produce here in New York. I wanted to share a not-so-known early summer ingredient that I am sure you will want to add to your list of summer produce must-haves. I am talking about Scapes. […]

Mexican Stuffed Peppers

When thinking of stuffed peppers, one usually thinks of the Italian version with tomato sauce, beef, and rice. I love Italian food, but I also love Mexican food, maybe even more. I had to figure out a way to turn a classic recipe into a mexican marvel, and here it is. My Mexican Stuffed Peppers […]

Banana Nut Overnight Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a superfood, and used in everything from cookies to crumbles, cakes and cobblers. It can be eaten plain or dolled up with goodies. It even has some non-culinary uses, seen  a lot of the time in face masks and skin treatments for the great things it can do for your complexion. While it […]

Super Sides: Balsamic Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Another addition to my “Super Sides” series is my Balsamic Roasted Brussel Sprouts. They are tangy, beautifully seasoned, and roasted to perfection, making them a great addition to any dinner spread.

Tasty Taco Salad

If there is one things to know about me, I love a good salad. Salads can be so many things: crunchy, savory, tart, fresh, sweet, hearty. A pile of crisp lettuce decorated with toppings galore that is perfectly dressed is the way to my heart. Since I also love mexican food, this Taco Salad is […]

Super Sides: Mashed Cauliflower

This is my first of many recipes in a series I’m calling “Super Sides.” Side dishes can be simple, or have a spectrum of ingredients, but I am going to share sides that I think are super. Mashed Cauliflower is my first super side and it is a must try. I learned about mashed cauliflower a […]

Vanilla Bean Meringues

I remember during the Christmas season, my family would always have meringue cookies in the house. They come in fun colors like green and pink, and were so sweet, crunchy, and light. I could eat a million of them and never get tired of having another. Luckily they are relatively guilt free and low in […]
