Maple Brussels Sprouts Hash

Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 10-12 minutes About five years ago I ate my first brussels sprouts as an adult. My father didn’t like them (see next paragraph) so if I ever ate them, it would have been sparingly. So five years ago I’m in one of my favorite restaurants and the short-ribs just spoke […]

Mini Vegetable Quiches

Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 30-35 minutes Serves: 3-4 Growing up I always liked quiche, specifically broccoli and breakfast sausage. Yes…even for dinner.

Summer Salad with Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette

Chunky avocado salad

Prep time: 10 minutes! Serves: 4 You’re probably thinking, wow Julianne, that chunky avocado salad looks just like guacamole, right? And it kind of does. But its not! Guacamole is a bunch of ingredients mashed into a dip or topping. In this recipe, the ingredients are combined, but left as distinct flavors and textures. The sweet […]
