Asparagus Plate
RecipesSides

This is one of my easiest “go-to” side dishes in my rotation. During the spring when asparagus are in season, asparagus is usually my veggie of choice. I can’t seem to get enough. There’s virtually no pre-time to speak of, and it always tastes great, imho. Adding the cherry tomatoes and

Artichoke
DinnerLunchRecipesSides

Artichokes (and asparagus) are my favorite spring vegetables. They generally peak between March and May, so try to scoop up as many as possible. They can get a little expensive, but they’re usually a little cheaper during peak season. This recipe is super easy. The artichoke meat is very tender, and

Here’s another recipe I can’t take credit for, but it’s too delicious not to spread the word. Thanks to Elana Amsterdam at www.ElanasPantry.com for this one.

I can’t take credit for coming up with this recipe. I have to give full credit to Linda Spiker over at TheOrganicKitchen.org for this one. But it’s so delicious, I just had to share. I’ve only made a few (minor) modifications to her recipe. So, whichever way you go, it will turn out

Chicken Leg Zucchini
DinnerRecipes

I’m always on the lookout for easy, yet slightly different meals. This one was a result of “what do I have left in the refrigerator tonight?” I was down to a chicken leg, a zucchini, some cherry tomatoes, and a lemon. For the chicken, I figured rosemary is always good,

Cauliflower Bowl
DinnerLunchRecipesSides

I’m tired of calling cauliflower rice “rice” with quotes around every single time I write it. Let’s make a deal and start calling it “caulirice” from now on for simplicity. We all know it’s not “real” rice, but the result has a desired similar effect. Deal? Ok then. Another issue

Pork Chop with Romesco Sauce
DinnerRecipes

Romesco sauce is traditionally a seafood sauce from the Catalonia region of Spain. It’s made from roasted red peppers, almonds, olive oil, and garlic. However, because it’s so rich and hearty, it pairs fantastically with pork, chicken, or lamb. I made a simple pork chop with stove-top braised carrots to

Romesco is a bold, Spanish sauce traditionally made with roasted red peppers, olive oil, garlic, and almonds. Originally from the Catalonia region on the Northeastern coast, it was meant to be served with fish. But the versatility of romesco lends itself well to pork, chicken, or lamb. Romesco can also be used as

Herbed Wings
DinnerLunchRecipesSides

Is there any bad time for wings? I didn’t think so. Chicken wings are good for lunch, a snack, a side dish, parties, or even a dinner. Heck, I’ll even eat some cold leftover chicken wings for breakfast. These herbed wings are a great alternative to the normal hot-sauce or
