Oven Baked Paneer Tikka

I’m a big fan of Indian food, and I try to make Indian-inspired dishes at home every once in a while. Particularly with paneer, like this oven-baked paneer tikka. If you’re not familiar, paneer is a soft cheese that doesn’t melt into a gooey mess when heated. You can slice or cube it and toss [...]

Browned Butter Maple Vanilla Skillet Granola

I’ve made homemade vanilla granola plenty of times. But today, I made browned butter vanilla granola in a skillet. I eat yogurt with fruit and granola 2-3 times a week. It’s easy, it’s filling, and hits a lot of nutritional notes. So I almost always have a variety of things on hand to make this. [...]

Blood Orange Chocolate Buttermilk Scones

Years ago, I worked in a bakery that made the best chocolate buttermilk scones. They were tender and crunchy and craggy. The buttermilk gave them a tangy flavor that in my mind is better than heavy cream. And chocolate? Yes, please. In addition to chocolate, I’m a big fan of citrus flavors, so orange chocolate [...]

Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

I’m not the biggest cauliflower fan, but I recently got a head in my Imperfect Foods box. I don’t hate it, but it’s not something I’ll go out of my way for. Unless it’s coated in hot sauce, like this recipe for baked buffalo cauliflower bites. Truth is, I’ve never had anything coated in hot [...]

Homemade Hot Honey

Hot honey is not a new thing at this point; it’s on pizza’s everywhere these days, and you can even buy it at most local grocery stores. But how about homemade hot honey? If you’ve never had it, it’s the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. It’s a great condiment to have on hand if [...]

Crispy Curried Chickpeas

Curried chickpeas sound like something you’ve had before. But not this way. Eating healthy can be a drag sometimes, but it helps if you have a few super healthy foods that you love. Especially if those foods are easy to turn into something that seems unhealthy. These chickpeas are not the boring ones you see [...]

Sesame Cherry Granola

I love cherry granola. On yogurt. On oatmeal (yes, sounds weird, but try it!) Or on its own. Sometimes I buy it. But sometimes I make it because I get flavor combos in my head that I can’t find at the store. Like this one. Tart cherries and toasty sesame seeds. Other than those, you [...]

Chocolate Berry Frozen Yogurt Bark

I spend a lot of time during the start of a new year trying to come up with creative, healthy snack ideas. Because I love snacks,  but don’t get any satisfaction crunching carrots and celery, no matter what you dip them in. This recipe was inspired from a combination of all my favorite snacks — yogurt, [...]

Best Oven Baked Fries

Oven baked fries are a tough one. I’ve made them lots of times, because fries are a satisfying side dish and sometimes you just don’t want to (or these days, can’t) go out to get them. And deep frying in the house is rarely a thing that’s worth the trouble. So I’ve been trying to perfect [...]
