  • 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
