Anchovy & Olives Tapenade

Some people avoid using anchovies in their cooking, but I encourage my clients to incorporate them from time to time.

You can incorporate them subtly into […]

That’s why I developed this Edamame Gluten-Free Pesto Pasta recipe. Instead of just […]


Creamy Broccoli Soup

I’ve been trying to find ways to help reduce my food waste, and a great one is using food scraps that would usually be thrown away. Take broccoli stems, for example. They contain the most fiber out of any part of the vegetable, are high in antioxidants, and contain vitamins Em, and K, and calcium. […]

Vegan Key Lime Bars

What’s perfectly tart, cashew-creamy, and has a delectable cookie crumble crust? These drool-inducing Vegan Key Lime Bars. I used to get mega cravings for the key lime pie cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory. But all of the saturated fat, dairy, and added sugar would leave me feeling bloated and sluggish. These dairy-free key lime bars […]
