Green Chickpea Flatbreads with Buttermilk Greek Salad (GF, V)

These easy and healthy green chickpea flatbreads are perfect for quick lunches and weeknight dinners! Chickpea flatbread Having a batch of these chickpea flatbreads in my fridge has become my lunchtime savior. School started this week (!!!) meaning I’m finally diving into a few new projects without the distraction of fixing doll parts (we seem to have a problem with dismembered heads around here) or potty training (so. much. laundry). Juniper is in preschool, Ella is in second grade, and I’m playing catch-up from juggling the kids over the past couple of weeks. That means my lunches, while blissfully...

No-Churn Vegan Mango Ice Cream with Coconut Peanut Crumble

This soft-serve vegan mango ice cream comes together in just minutes without an ice cream maker and gets served with a crunchy coconut peanut crumble! Have I mentioned that my seven-year-old daughter Ella has a sweet tooth? Like HUGE. Whereas little Juniper is our salty girl (she’s been known to literally steal handfuls of sea salt from the container), Ella hates pretzels, won’t tolerate olives, and literally begs for dessert every night (it never ceases to amaze me how two kids from the same parents can be so different). I have a hard time negotiating this, as the effect...

Introducing the perfect party appetizer: warm corn dip! This warm corn dip is flavored with garlic, jalopeños, cilantro, green onions, hot sauce and a toasty layer of feta cheese. It’s sweet, salty, a touch spicy, creamy and crunchy. In other words, it’s the perfect way to kick off your next party (new video below!). I love corn. I love dip. I love corn dip. As a Midwestern girl at heart, I have two big obsessions: sweet corn (which you can read about here, here and here) and Mexican-style dips. “Mexican” dips were a staple of my childhood in Illinois,...

5-Minute Cold Cucumber Soup

This cold cucumber soup might just be the most refreshing thing you taste all summer. This is a last-minute unscheduled post, as I’ve had several people ask me for the recipe for the cold cucumber soup that I recently posted on Instagram. The recipe actually comes from my Craftsy class, and it’s one of my FAVORITE speedy lunches or dinnertime appetizers on sweltering days! Unlike most chilled soups, which require hours of refrigeration before eating, this cucumber soup can be served straight out of the blender. That means you’re just minutes away from one of the most refreshing soups...

Gluten Free Veggie Burgers with Sriracha Mayo (Quick & Easy!)

These gluten free veggie burgers are packed with vegetables and protein but taste downright indulgent. And they couldn’t be easier to make! These ain’t no frozen cardboard patties These gluten free veggie burgers are my new go-to meal when I’m craving something soul-satisfying but nutritious. I have to admit that I have a long, slightly sordid history with veggie burgers. It all started in high school when I’d inhale those “meat” flavored patties from the freezer section of the supermarket, doused in ketchup to mask their cardboard flavor and texture. Gah! Thank god my tastes have evolved since then...
