Southwestern Style Spaghetti Squash Bowl

Who said eating healthy has to be boring? Not me! I find that if you add lots of great spices and herbs you can take something that would be boring and make it delicious and exciting. I love spaghetti squash because it is so easy to bake and I like to do it ahead of time so when it's time to make this recipe I just have to add it to the sauteed veggies and it's ready in no time!...

Homemade BBQ Sauce*

Ahhhhh sweet sweet Summer is here. Do you know what that means? Pool parties, boat days, beach days, and most importantly... grilling out days. I don't know about you but I'm a sucker for some good BBQ and this my friends is a great BBQ sauce. I made it for my family and my brother could not get enough of it. It's so easy to make your own BBQ sauce and in my opinion it's a lot of fun to play with different flavors and see exactly...

Steak Teriyaki*

My brother's favorite thing in the world is this steak teriyaki recipe and when Greensbury Market sent me some amazing grass fed skirt steak I knew exactly what to do with it. When making this recipe what I like to do is make the teriyaki ahead and let the meat marinate overnight so when it's time to eat all you have to do is throw it on the grill and make some delicious sides to go with it! I personally love to grill some pineapple along with it...

Fish en Papillote*

Ever feel like making something really fancy really fast? Well, look no further! This recipe takes about 2 minutes to prepare and you won't believe how flavorful this healthy dinner can be. This recipe only makes one serving but it's so easy to do you'll want to make this for a dinner party of 20! I like to serve it rustic style still in the parchment with some rice and veggies.

Fried Chicken & Sage Waffles*

Have you ever had fried chicken and waffles? I mean... real fried chicken and waffles?? I'm talking crispy golden delicious chicken with soft slightly-sweet buttermilk waffles? If you've answered no then we need to change this right now. Fried chicken and waffles are the ultimate Southern comfort food and this recipe is my gourmet version of that. I put fresh sage in the waffles for an unexpected twist that I highly recommend. Oh...

Homemade Orecchiette with Pancetta and Peas*

While in Italy I realized something... our pasta sucks. That dried stuff we buy in a box just isn't cutting it for me anymore! If you've ever had homemade pasta then you know what I'm talking about. One of my favorite shapes of pasta is the orecchiette, which translates to "little ears" in Italian. They're cute AND delicious. What else could you ask for?! Alright, time to get started making our homemade pasta. Put your all purpose flour, semolina...

Truffle Lobster Mac & Cheese*

Can you think of anything more decadent than truffle lobster mac and cheese?! Answer: no. It's creamy, rich, delicious, earthy, lobstery (is that even a word?), and just all in all amazing. My parents are some tough critics and they said this is the best macaroni and cheese they've ever had. This is the kind of dish you make for a special occasion and really want to impress someone. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. In a pot of boiling salted w...

In a bowl mix together your chopped up rosemary, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and red...

Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa*

This recipe is so easy, so healthy, and so delicious. Summertime to me means 1.) time to go fishing in the Florida Keys and 2.) MANGO SEASON! I'm absolutely obsessed with fresh mangoes. We have a lot of friends and neighbors that just give them to us in the summertime constantly and we take full advantage of it. If you don't have anyone to give you any mangoes fresh from their tree you can always find them at you...

No Cook Spaghetti Sauce*

This is seriously one of the easiest dinners you can make. My mom made this for us growing up all the time and it's so fresh and delicious! She would throw everything together in the morning and when it came time for dinner all she would have to do is boil the water and cook the spaghetti. Genius. In a bowl add your chopped overripe tomatoes, garlic, basil, rosemary, red pepper flakes salt, pepper, balsamic (or you can use red wine vinegar), and ...
