    Cheesy Roasted Butternut Squash Casserole

    Oh, casseroles. Long gone are the days where “casserole” meant unappetizing. Fast forward to today, and casseroles can be stand alone stars, healthy, crowd pleasers, and perfect for busy families on the go. This Cheesy Roasted Butternut Squash Casserole is one of the best casseroles I’ve ever had. It pairs nicely with roasted chicken, topped with pan seared, and buttery scallops, or good all on its own. “I’ve been thinking about this casserole all day” – Andrew. But I had been, too. It’s that good. As you can see, I shot this as leftovers. What’s great about this is that it conveys a feeling of sharing and also that the casserole is…

    Creamy Avocado Salad Sandwich

    Craving an egg or chicken salad sandwich? But don’t have the time? This Creamy Avocado Salad Sandwich is the perfect substitute. Prepared with just a bit of mayo, you still get the subtle tang without the calorie bomb.  The recipe for my Creamy Avocado Salad Sandwich was born by way of craving. I wanted an egg salad sandwich. I can’t have eggs and was short on time (we were headed to the zoo). What’s a girl to do? “Aha!” moment. AVOCADOS. But I didn’t want just guacamole on two pieces of bread. As lovely as that sounds, I wanted a bit of texture while still being creamy, so I added…

    Lemon Ricotta & Eggplant Pizza with Hot Honey Drizzle

    For this Lemon Ricotta & Eggplant Pizza with Hot Honey Drizzle, I wanted to explore the sweet and savory aspects of the ingredients, and the texture of the pizza, while using classic in-season produce. The result hit the preverbal nail on the head. Elevated, yet simple, this pizza is perfect for both weeknights and weekends.  Guys, this pizza looks difficult and all time consuming, but hint: it’s not. However, it tastes like you spent hours slaving away in the kitchen. There are a few more steps than my normal pizza’s, but you won’t be disappointed. I am actually so pumped about this recipe as a local magazine, Charlotte Lately, reached out…

    Golden Beet Salad & Ginger Dressing

    I do not remember having beets as a child. In fact, I know I didn’t. It wasn’t until recently that I have learned how delicious and satisfying beets are. They’re Andrew’s “favorite food”, but lets be honest – we all know that’s not true. Donuts. Donuts are Andrew’s favorite food. This Golden Beet Salad & Ginger Dressing is a close second, though. You can use any beet variety for this dish, but Golden Beets lend their sweetness and more mild flavor to counterbalance the zesty ginger dressing. Roasting beets help bring out their sweetness even more (so, sort of like a donut??) as does the final sprinkling of salt after…
