Grilling season officially kicks off this weekend, which means these balsamic-marinated grilled artichokes should definitely be on the menu. I’m at a loss for words trying to explain how delicious these artichokes are, so you’ll just have to try them yourself. :) I highly recommend squeezing some charred lemon on top and dipping the leaves into pesto aioli – a winning combo!
With spring in full swing, there’s no better way to celebrate the season than with this delicious, vibrant and healthy salad. It’s packed with arugula, quinoa, asparagus, peas, bell pepper, toasted slivered almonds, pecorino romano…the list goes on! The salad is finished off with a simple lemon vinaigrette, and can be topped with grilled chicken or left as a vegetarian dish.
With our wedding quickly approaching (February is going to be here before we know it!), we’ve begun ‘shredding for the wedding,’ as they say. We definitely still have our cheat days, but have been lightening it up during the week. This pesto brown rice bowl is inspired by one of my favorite dishes at Roni’s Diner in Beverly Hills. The bowl is incredibly delicious and I’m so glad I can now make my own version!
Lasagna is one of my favorite dishes to cook. Although the process is somewhat laborious, the dish is delicious and provides at least one week’s worth of leftovers! My fiancé and I ate this lasagna for dinner and brought the rest to work for lunch the remainder of the week. The ground turkey and vegetables provide a delicious alternative to the classically prepared lasagna with beef.
Life got a bit crazy (busy with work, got engaged[!], etc.), which is why I’ve been absent from blogging, but I was able to get back in the kitchen to make this delicious chicken fried rice. The rice is full of flavor and the perfect meal to whip up during a hectic week.
Zoodles provide the perfect solution for a lighter “pasta” dish that is still full of flavor. The slightly al dente zucchini noodles, mixed with a thick and savory marinara sauce, is a scrumptious combination that will keep you coming back for more.
