Rosemary Potatoes and Apples

This recipe is just a celebration of fall and it may be the perfect dinner side. And all made in one dish, it couldn’t be easier.

Noodle bowls are some of our favorite dinners – they are fast, so flavorful, and can be packed with endless varieties of vegetables.

This recipe is vegan, gluten-free,Continue reading “Weeknight Noodle Bowl”

Jalapeño and Roasted Corn Cotija Cornbread

Dry cornbread is one of my least favorite things. When I have cornbread I want it moist, buttery, flavorful, and slightly sweet. In my version, you also get a little heat from the jalapeño, extra corn flavor from the roasted corn, and a touch a salty cheese all topped with a salted honey butter. ItContinue reading “Jalapeño and Roasted Corn Cotija Cornbread”
