Fennel & Orange Salad with Toasted Pistachios

IMG_2050

Citrus! Sweet, Sweet (and sour) Citrus.

Without your glowing jewel tones and bursts of vitamin C, how would we ever survive the harsh brutalities of winter?

Just seeing citrus this time of year gets me feeling all bright eyed and bushy tailed. 

Look!

A Soup Called Minestrone (with Parsley Pistou)

IMG_1918

Now this is  a story all about how
My leftovers got flipped-turned upside down
And I’d like to take a minute, just sit on your throne
I’ll tell you how I made them into a soup called minestrone!

Just call me the Fresh Princess of Soup. Or call me a nerd. Either way, we both get to call this soup delicious.

Clafoutis! Ohhh lala.

It sounds so French! It sounds so fancy!!  It sounds… so…

Complicated.

Julie’s Detox(ish) Kale Salad

IMG_1385

What’s not to love about a  holiday completely dedicated to eating?

It’s the best! Thanksgiving makes me feel some type of  way.

It feels so good in the moment – and I’m all about living in the moment – but sometimes it leaves us feeling less than our best when its all over. Continue reading Julie’s Detox(ish) Kale Salad

I am a pie person. Let it be known.

Waffles with Maple Brown Butter

IMG_0807

Baby, it’s cold outside.

Entirely too cold for my liking.

I’m a warm weather kinda gal, and if you visit this blog frequently you probably already know that. Temperatures have been dancing around the freezing mark for the past few days and I think that is just too cold for November… Or, well, ever!

But unusually cold weather makes for a good excuse to cozy up at home and make a nice big batch of warm, crispy waffles.

Mmmm… Waffles. As if you need an excuse.  Continue reading Waffles with Maple Brown Butter
