I tried, guys. Really, I did.

I promised myself I would wait until the first day of fall to open my first can of pumpkin. I refused to be that girl. You know the one I’m talking about.. the one that is all “OMG #PSL” in like, August.

And yet, here we are. Three days away from the official start of fall and elbows deep in Chipotle Pumpkin Salsa. Soo close…

Rosemary Basil Pecan Pesto

Put summer’s bounty of fresh herbs to good use with Rosemary Basil Pecan Pesto – an easy and affordable alternative to store-bought pesto. Toss with pasta, spread on sandwiches, or use as a sauce on pizza.. the possibilities are endless!

 

Chances are, you’ve probably heard by now that pesto can be a great way to use up an abundance of basil before it goes bad. Perhaps you even consider yourself a seasoned veteran when it comes to homemade pesto. But did you know that this traditional Italian sauce can be a great way to use up other fresh herbs, as well?

The idea for this Rosemary Basil Pecan Pesto first came about in an effort to tame the herb garden jungle that is quickly taking over the balcony of our apartment. While I’ve been doing my best to incorporate as many fresh herbs into dishes as possible, there are not enough caprese salads in the world that can handle the amount of basil that we currently have (alright, slight exaggeration, but you get the point).

Slow Cooker Sriracha Mango Chicken Tacos

Slow Cooker Sriracha Mango Chicken Tacos are perfect for those hot summer days when you have zero desire to turn on a stove or oven. An easy, refreshing summer meal! | www.bytesizednutrition.com
Think your slow cooker is only good for winter staples, like soups and stews? Think again! These Slow Cooker Sriracha Mango Chicken Tacos are perfect for those hot summer days when you have zero desire to turn on a stove or oven. So go ahead and get outside, enjoy the weather, and have dinner waiting for you when you return!

 

It’s gettin’ hot in here, so turn off all your stoves…

That’s how the song goes, right??

 But for real, we are in the heat of summer here in Ohio and cooking on the stove or in the oven is just not in the cards right now. And apparently, I’m not the only person who feels this way because this month’s Recipe Redux theme is all about beating the heat and keeping your kitchen cool during the hot summer months.

So, how exactly do keep your kitchen cool (and NOT live off of take-out)? Well, the first (and probably most obvious) option is to load up on no-cook meals. I often find myself naturally gravitating towards sandwiches, salads, and smoothies during the summer months. But, after a while the allure of no-cook meals inevitably wears off and the craving for a nice home cooked meal sets in. So, what’s a gal to do?

Two words: Slow. Cooker. (more…)

Take a break from traditional salads with this refreshing Cauliflower Chickpea Tabbouleh. A quick and easy no-cook dish that’s perfect for feeding a crowd! 
 

 

Over the past few years, I’ve sat back and watched as cauliflower went from being the last item left on the veggie platter to the star of the produce section. As a dietitian, witnessing this dramatic transformation has been like watching a child struggle through the awkward teenage years and finally come out on the other side as a beautiful, confident young adult. I couldn’t be prouder of how far my little cruciferous veggie has come!
