Garlic and Lemon Zest Fiddlehead Crostini with Cashew Cheese

It’s fiddlehead fern season and although these little bundles of crunchy green goodness are a bit more tedious to prepare than other seasonal veggies, they’re well worth the effort for the few weeks they’re available.  Fiddleheads can cause severe indigestion if not prepared properly, so be very sure to clean and cook them thoroughly! The […]

Garlic and Parsley Thin Crust Pizza with Potatoes and Au Jus Drizzle

Although I’m a fan of thinly sliced potatoes on pizza, I’ve never actually gone the spiralized route.  I will try anything on a pizza and this experiment was a huge success, spiralizing makes the potatoes super crispy — almost like breakfast hash browns!

Raw Carrot and Cantaloupe Salad with Arugula and Blood Orange Vinaigrette

Roasted Prosciutto Wrapped Radishes with Citrus-Cilantro Dressing

I’m a pretty big fan of roasted radishes as it is, so I figured wrapping them in shaved prosciutto and drenching them in a citrus marinade couldn’t hurt! If you’re looking for a meat-free option, simply omit the prosciutto all together or wrap the radishes in rice paper bacon before baking. Roasted Prosciutto Wrapped Radishes […]

Matcha Green Tea Dutch Baby Pancake with Fresh Fruit

I opted to pair my pancake with citrus and kiwi, since it’s […]

Healthy Beet Powder and Goji Berry Breakfast Cookies

Healthy breakfast cookies make for the perfect breakfast on the go and they’re also a great way to use up ripe or frozen bananas. They’re also very easy to experiment with, substitute the nuts, seeds, fruit and spices for different varieties to suit your taste.  I’ve experimented with apples, blueberries, nutmeg, turmeric and walnuts in this […]
