Burgundy Steak Salad

Sorry for the long post delay, we went out of town for the weekend and didn’t get to the grocery until this morning. But we’re back with a fast and flavorful recipe that’s definitely...

Basil Roasted Veggies & Couscous

Basil Roasted Veggies & Couscous

The roasting gives the veggies in this dish a wonderful rich flavor, not to mention beautiful with all the gorgeous colors. And couscous is a nice change from rice and pasta all the time....

Spicy Lime and Herbed Tofu Lettuce Wraps

Spicy Lime and Herbed Tofu Lettuce Wraps

What’s better than a recipe that involves NO cooking whatsoever? Um, nothing? We made these for the first time tonight, and they were quite refreshing. Due to some poor menu planning on my part,...

Ginger & Serrano Steamed Roughy

Ginger & Serrano Steamed Roughy

This is one of our favorite quick meals, not to mention healthy. If you don’t have one already, pick yourself up a bamboo steamer – it’s the best $20 you’ll ever spend. We use...

Soy Almond Waffles

A nice Sunday brunch, these waffles are super light and fluffy. This is a nice twist on the traditional – the almond extract gives these a wonderful flavor. Plus it’s dairy free, substituting soy...

These are a staple for us. Granted, they are a bit time consuming and the spring-roll sheets are tricky to work with (Taylor handles them like a master!), but it’s a healthy, refreshing dish...

Balsamic Portobello Turkey Sliders

Balsamic Portobello Turkey Sliders

After eating these, you’ll be asking, “Where’s the Beef?” The Worcestershire sauce in the ground turkey meat really makes them taste like ground beef, but so much healthier. We love the concept of “sliders”...

Cumin Rubbed Sirloin with Basil Roasted Potatoes

Cumin Rubbed Sirloin with Basil Roasted Potatoes

Saturday night dinner is usually a bit more of a splurge, as we figure we are replacing going out to dinner. Even if we cook something fancy (like steak), it’s still cheaper than eating...
