Grilled Halloumi with Walnut Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Candied Walnuts

I don't know, it's just my preference. So one day while I was trying to do my homework AKA paint … Continue reading Grilled Halloumi with Walnut Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Candied Walnuts

Healthy Baked Ziti with Cauliflower

Now I love my baked pasta. It's cheesy and tasty but normally so calorific that if I made it I, a bulking teen, would end the day way over my calorie goals. It also is so void of nutrients. I mean, white pasta, processed tomato sauce, and cheese. So many nutrients, amirite? That's why I … Continue reading Healthy Baked Ziti with Cauliflower

Gruyere is love, Gruyere is life. Seriously, I love Gruyere cheese. So. Much. So if you haven't had Gruyere cheese, it basically tastes like a cross between Swiss and Parmesan.

Green Lentil Pasta with Broccoli

I wish I were Italian. Then I would, for one, have an awesome Italian accent and, two, get to eat pasta all day. Now sadly, I'm not Italian but I do have access to pasta.

Mashed Cauliflower – Experiment Gone Wrong

I love mashed potatoes. I would marry mashed potatoes. And then eat my new wife. That's how much I love mashed potatoes. Unfortunately, half a cup of that delicious nectar is over 200 calories.

Moldy cheese. That sounds appetizing. Actually it is because blue cheese is basically moldy cheese. I think that's why it's blue. I'm not sure I'm too lazy to research it.

Black Bean and Chickpea Salad with a Lemon Olive Dressing

Ugh, salads. Salads are like rabbit food, right? This person seems to agree. I mean, who would eat a salad?

Bacon wrapped deep fried chicken with ranch dressing and 5 grams … Continue reading Black Bean and Chickpea Salad with a Lemon Olive Dressing
