This 10-Minute Black Bean Dip Will Be A Touchdown At Your Next Football Party!

October 1, 2015

Football season is in full swing, and game day snacks aren’t always super healthy. But I have a recipe for an amazing dip that you can serve instead of nachos or wings that you can turn to for endless munching, with no guilt whatsoever. There’s no added sugar or fat, it’s vegan and gluten-free, and you can easily customize it to suit your own tastes. Plus, there’s no cooking and it only takes 10 minutes. What could be better?

Chicken with Tarragon, Grapefruit, and Olives

June 23, 2015

I wanted to continue my little streak of cooking and eating citrus fruit, peel and all, so I came up with an easy, simple chicken recipe and tried it out on a couple friends who came to dinner.
