Spicy Sriracha Harvest Bowl

Spicy Sriracha Harvest Bowl

Spicy Sriracha Harvest Bowl This bowl was inspired by one of my favorite dishes at a local restaurant in Phoenix, called The Henry. They have this really yummy and hearty harvest bowl that I have been craving all quarantine.  Recreating dishes from places I love has made me more inspired in the kitchen, and has helped curb those restaurant cravings. Full of protein, healthy fat, veggies and spice, this Spicy Sriracha Harvest Bowl is a perfect lunch or dinner option to feed you and the family. If it's just the two of you, you'll have some leftover for the next…

Tuna Salad Recipe

Tuna Salad Recipe

Tuna Salad Recipe! This recipe is inspired by the tuna salad from my favorite local bistro in Phoenix, AZ, La Grande Orange. I've never had golden raisins in tuna salad before, the golden raisins add such vibrant flavor and texture. I knew I needed to try and recreate this recipe at home. LGO definitely uses a secret sauce or a secret ingredient that makes it extra delicious, but I think I created something that comes pretty close. Ingredients: 4 cans of tuna (I use two light and two dark,  the contrast of the light and dark gives it a unique…

BLT(A) Salad

BLT(A) Salad

BLT Avocado Salad One of my absolute favorite sandwiches is the BLT *add Avocado! I could eat that weekly, however with trying to switch things up I thought taking the bread away is a great and healthier alternative to do just that. This salad is also great because it contains a lot of ingredients you probably already have in your fridge. As the temperatures heat up this BLT Avocado Salad is perfect for cooling down, with the light and creamy dressing as well. Instead of the mayo or aioli I also toned down the dressing, made it a little healthier…

Cauliflower Fried Rice

Cauliflower Fried Rice

Cauliflower Fried Rice Fried rice is probably a top ten favorite food of mine, however it is not always the healthiest choice. Im usually eating fried rice on a splurge meal or for Christmas Eve dinner when we are having one of our tradition dinners. Because I often crave it more than those times, I got on board with the cauliflower rice trend and decided to create my own healthier version of "Fried Rice" Not gonna lie, I was not a fan of cauliflower rice at first. It took multiple attempts to get the right consistency and taste. It was…

Pesto Pasta with Peas

Pesto Pasta with Peas

Pesto Pasta with peas Spring is around the corner and fresh dishes are always the four front. Lighter brighter flavors, more veggies, greens and all the in between. Pasta is a favorite of mine and adding light greens and veggies is a great way to help make it a good spring dish. I love adding arugula to pesto because it adds a nice bite and I think it pairs nicely.  Because of all the pesto and the peppery bite with arugula I thought a creamy light cheese light Ricotta would be nice.   Ingredients: 1 Box of Bow tie pasta…

Tzatziki Sauce Recipe

Tzatziki Sauce Recipe

Tzatziki Sauce Recipe Tzatziki is for sure my favorite greek condiment. I think because it reminds me so much of sour cream lol and I LOVE sour cream. It's so creamy, yet has that perfect thick consistency. Packed with so much flavor you can eat it alone with veggies or add/spread it on any sandwiches, bowls etc. Tzatziki is a pretty basic recipe that typically is summed up with 4-5 ingredients. However like I said above I love sour cream and I add a little to my Tzatziki sauce recipe because I think it adds a little more creamy richness…

Greek Tostasda Recipe

Greek Tostasda Recipe

Greek Tostada Recipe I am a huge fan of the tostado. It leaves so much room for fabulous toppings, and if you're trying to be healthy it's like an open face taco, you can eat only what's on top or indulge a little and enjoy the tortilla. I could eat Mexican food all day every day but thought this would be great with Greek Flavors. Then as I thought about it more " I thought to myself, well duh, it's just an open face pita" lol So, Open face Pita, Greek Tostada, whatever you want to call it, I think…
