Pile those nutritious ingredients on top of bean chips, almond cheese, and tomatoes, all topped off with spinach, cilantro, and lime? My kind…

Eggplant Lasagna with Crunchy Quinoa


Hey there! I’m bringing you another lower-carb pasta alternative today, and this one is SO STINKIN GOOD. You know why? Because there’s CHEESE! It’s something that I don’t honestly use a lot of. You may find it here and there in recipes, but we became so accustomed to a dairy-free diet after both my fiance and I discovered we were…

BBQ Chicken Salad with “Fried” Onions


Ok, so right now I’m making a lot of salads. Honestly, sometimes it’s just too hot for anything else! You will probably see at least one a week for the remainder of the summer, just so I have something light and refreshing on the menu. But that doesn’t mean it’s lacking on flavor!

Sausage, Chicken, & Shrimp Gumbo


Hey there! Ok, so I know I’ve made jambalaya before (find the recipe on instagram @thesamanthaelaine), but I’m here to say I think I love gumbo more. Trust me, ask me 5 years ago and I probably would have looked at you like you were crazy. Okra was not something I had ever tried before. But now, I love it!…

Greek Salad with Chicken
