Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh. YOU GUYS.

My fingers are literally dancing off the keyboard right now as I type up this post. (Partly because I had an extra cup of coffee this morning, but mostly because I’m just SO DARN EXCITED about this recipe) I basically took three of my favorite foods (salmon, pistachios, and goat cheese) and combined them into one dish. And let’s just say, the results were even MORE epic than I could have imagined.

I’m a firm believer that you don’t need a lot of time (or ingredients) to make a healthy and delicious meal. That being said, all you need to make this Herbed Goat Cheese and Pistachio Crusted Salmon is just 15 minutes and 3 main ingredients (plus a few pinches of herbs for flavor!) And despite the fact that this dish tastes incredibly indulgent, it’s actually extremely nutritious!

Weekly Bytes 1.28.18 + A Healthier Super Bowl Dip Recipe!

Another week is in the books! Scrolling through my camera roll, I realize that I didn’t really do the greatest job of planning (or documenting) my meals this week. Most days, I just kind of flew by the seat of my pants, throwing together a bunch of leftovers and/or whatever I could find in the fridge until I ended up with something that slightly resembled a meal. Hey, whatever works, right?

As an added bonus, I’m also sharing a healthier Super Bowl dip that I created on the fly last week. Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of this post to check out the recipe!

Are you the type of person who eats according to the date on the calendar? In other words, are you easily offended when someone mentions pumpkin outside of the months of October and November?

If so, then I suggest that click that little red “x” in the corner. of your screen. Because what I’m about to share with you today may not be suitable for certain audiences.

No, it’s not a pumpkin recipe (although that wouldn’t be THAT far fetched – I did make myself a pretty good pumpkin pie smoothie the other day…), but it’s pretty darn close. Ready for it?

Spaghetti Squash Frittata with Spinach, Tomatoes, and Feta

Spaghetti Squash Frittata with Spinach, Tomato and Feta is a light, yet filling meal that makes the perfect weekend brunch, lazy weeknight dinner, or make ahead breakfast! This simple frittata is naturally gluten-free, vegetarian, and loaded with flavorful veggies.

 

It’s Sunday, which means it’s time to share some weekly bytes. But, today also happens to be January 21st – and if you’ve been hanging around here for a while, then you know that the 21st of every month is Recipe Redux day. So, what do you say we make a compromise and talk about this Spaghetti Squash Frittata that I’ve been loving these past few days?

This Spaghetti Squash Frittata was inspired by a similar dish I ate a few weeks ago during a trip to The North Market. I was perusing (read: drooling over) all of the dishes on display at The Little Eater when my eyes landed on a slice of their Spaghetti Squash Frittata. Spaghetti squash? In a frittata? WHY HAD I NEVER THOUGHT OF THIS BEFORE?!

Frittatas have long been one of my favorite ways to use up leftover veggies – simply throw the veggies in a cast-iron skillet, pour in some eggs, add in any other mix-ins or spices, and bake in the oven. In less than 30 minutes, you have yourself an easy, delicious, and affordable breakfast (or dinner) that’s loaded with veggies! (more…)

Weekly Bytes 1.14.18: Back-to-School Edition

Aaaand just like that it’s Sunday, which means it’s time to share another round of weekly bytes!!
 

You’ll notice my meals this week weren’t quite as *exciting* or *adventurous* as last week, but that’s okay. Between starting my last semester of grad school (!!!) and unexpectedly having to replace my laptop (booo) I wasn’t left with a whole lot of free time for cooking or experimenting in the kitchen. But, fortunately a little weekend prep work and some freezer meals came to my rescue and made for some easy and delicious eats.
