Honeydew Salad with market Fresh Arugula and Citrus-Avocado Dressing

Since posting the recipe for this carrot and cantaloupe salad earlier this spring, I’ve been incessantly experimenting with different melon-vegetable combos.  The following recipe was born from all that experimenting and ended up deliciously creamy with the addition of avocados in the dressing! FYI…the addition of any type of melon is like instant summer in […]

Cold Avocado and Kiwi Soup with Citrus Marinated Cucumber

I’ve been on a soup kick lately…hot or cold, I don’t care.  When experimenting with proportions in this soup, I accidentally made way too much and had enough to eat for a few days.  The beauty of this mistake was it gave me a few different opportunities to experiment with toppings. I used sustainably raised shrimp from […]

Turkish Eggs with Garlicky Avocado Yogurt and Paprika Butter

Pork and Collard Green Wraps with Onion Sprouts and Avocado

This is my modern take on traditional pork and collard greens…less rendering, more wrapping! I’m not a big meat eater (especially when cooking at home) but when I do add meat to my grocery list, I’m committed to buying ethically raised animals from local farmers.  Thanks to the convenience of my weekly organic SPUD box, […]

Daikon Radish and Avocado Salad with Blood Orange Vinaigrette

More often than not, the most delicious meals are the least complicated.  After getting some daikon radishes in my SPUD box the other week, I’ve been experimenting with them all over the place.  Naturally, they made it into one of my daily mishmash salad creations and the result was pretty epic! This salad is quite […]

Avocado and Celeriac Salad with King Crab and Creamy Grapefruit Dressing

My dad always buys these huge boxes of frozen king crab legs, the downstairs freezer is always full of them. Since I frequent my parents house on a regular basis, I feel that they also belong to me.  I’m a firm believer that’s it’s the duty of offspring to capitalize on their parents gains…circle of […]
