“Sour Cream” and Onion Smashed Potatoes

This side dish has me WEAK.

If my six year old self could see me now, she would be so darn happy to see that I have made my favorite food, sour cream and onion potato chips, into a dinner that our mother would be proud of. Imagine that: eating chips for dinner and having society accept you for it.

Have I said too much?

Elote Salad with Avocado Green Goddess Dressing

We have having a major corn moment and I am in total love.

I used to shy away from corn, mostly because my only exposure to it was the frozen stuff my aunt would serve her kids at daycare. It was way too sweet, way too starchy, and had zero flavor. There are some veggies that I am totally for eating frozen, but corn just is not it. But, now that it’s summer and we have full exposure to the stuff on the cob, I am absolutely in LOVE with adding corn to absolutely everything in a way I never desired before.

Sorry if I’m getting too corny for ya.

It’s a party up in here for sure!

Quinoa Salad with Strawberries and Feta

It’s salad season! Huzzah.

Actually, if I am being COMPLETELY honest, the last thing I want to do this time of year is cook and this recipe has been a long time coming because I usually make it once a week every week during the summer. It has all my fav things and comes together in 30 minutes with MINIMAL cooking.

So who’s with me?! Let’s not cook together!

Lime Marinated Kale Burrito Bowls

It’s a fiesta over here!

I know kale always gets the short end of the stick in the “food” world. First, she was a garnish. Then, she was the ridicule of health food world. BUT, y’all, if you think you don’t like kale salads, then you haven’t LIVED until you tried marinating it in lime juice and lots of spice.

Trust me… I will convert you. That didn’t sound sketchy at all.

Marinated Curried Chickpea Salad

Everyone needs a good salad for the summer season. Because summer salads >>>>.

Ya know back in the winter when all I wanted was soups, stews, and cozy pots of things that are supposed to build up my winter reserves? For me, all of that goes out the window the second it turns to 65 degrees. And this… this might be the most delicious, flavorful chickpea salad to ever come out of my brain.

How I found it in there, I have zero clue.

Shredded Red Cabbage Salad with Dates and Feta

Freaking fresh to death! You know it!

I’ve been madly working away on recipe testing, fun holiday content, and staying warm in the kitchen with lots of baking. Because it has been so wicked cold out the past few days.

Double duty at its finest.
