Crockpot Sweet and Sour Pomegranate Short Ribs with Creamy Polenta

Since I have started writing this blog I have tried a lot of new foods. Short ribs are one of those foods. Until recently, I had never made them, but I am pretty sure they are my new go to food. Basically, I have already made them twice in the last two weeks and no one […]

Caramelized Brussels Sprouts and Bacon Fettuccine Alfredo

Don’t let this freak you out. I promise that brussels sprouts in pasta is good. Especially when they are combined with bacon. So I gotta tell you guys how I just spent the last ten minutes. Trying to figure out how you properly spell brussels sprouts. See, I thought is was just brussel sprout, but […]

Steak Fajita Stuffed Baked Potatoes with Avocado Chipotle Crema

SO, I pretty much never cook steak. I am just not really a steak person. If I am going to cook it, it is going to be a really good beef tenderloin with seriously just some salt and pepper, nothing else. Or a rib eye for cheesesteaks, or a flank steak that I seasoned the heck […]

Roasted Harvest Veggie, Curried Avocado + Coconut Rice Bowls

Plus some pomegranates too (if I knew how to do that winking emoji I so would, but I am lame and don’t). So I gotta say, this is kind of the best healthy comfort food I have had in a while. I could totally eat this all week; carbs, coconut, curry, avocado, maple roasted fall […]

How To Deseed A Pomegranate (In Pictures!)

So it is time I tell you about my little addiction with pomegranates. It has been going on hard-core for about three years now. Actually, I only ever tried a pomegranate around three years ago, but all I needed was one handful and I was hooked. Now every year I get crazy excited seeing the […]

Mini Cheddar Sweet Potato and Chorizo Shepherds Pies

Shepherds pie… is it British or Irish? My mom insists Irish, I thought it was British. I did a quick Google search on the topic which mostly pointed towards a British/Scottish origin. Seems the true origin dates back to the Scottish countryside in the 1700’s where the dish was made mostly by the poor from […]

Currently Happening on Instagram.

  • 30 Minute Coconut Milk Braised Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Rice. It's cozy comfort food, but yet pretty healthy too. It's all made in ONE POT (or the instant pot or slow cooker). And? It is just another excuse to make homemade naan, which you know I am all about. Extra saucy curries need naan...plus rice. All the carbs basically :) If you haven't made this yet, it's time. Watch the video, then grab the recipe link in my profile. #hbhhealthyjanuary #curry #naan
  • Fried Buffalo Goat Cheese Balls. Nothing classy about these. Just addicting. Goat cheese, coated in breadcrumbs, pan-fried, and tossed in spicy homemade buffalo sauce. Enjoy warm...with extra sauce (always extra sauce). Make tonight, tomorrow, or save them for Sunday's game. Either way, just make them. Recipe on blog (inked in profile) #gameday
  • Fudgy Avocado Brownies with Chocolate Fudge Frosting. PLEASE do not let the avocado scare you, these brownies are insanely good...and a lot healthier than your average brownie. They're chocolatey, perfectly sweet, studded with chocolate chunks, and finished with the best chocolate frosting. The avocados only add richness, I promise you don't taste them. And? +gluten-free. Know this sounds too good to be true, but trust me. These are GOOD. Even the brothers said so. That is HUGE. Recipe on HBH today - linked in profile. #hbhhealthyjanuary #chocolatelovers
  • Kale Pesto Cheese Pizza. When it's January, but you really want a little cheesy pizza...make this. It’s veggie filled (hello to sun-dried tomatoes + crispy kale + lemony arugula), but extra cheesy too. Sooo, it's balanced. And it's DELICIOUS. Made this yesterday on @goodmorningamerica with @ginger_zee (did you watch??). Grab the in the HBH Super Simple Cookbook. Link in profile. PS. I’ll make on stories soon too! #HBHSuperSimple #gingerscookclub
