There’s no shortage of delicious green ideas on the internet right now, but I thought I’d pop in and share a few of my favorites. Whether you’re a resolution maker or not, I think we can all agree that a little extra kale around this time of year isn’t a bad idea. (Click right on the photos to go to each recipe, links are also at the bottom of the post).
Oops, how did these get in here:
Matcha Mango Smoothies / Coconut Matcha Latte
Kale Stem Pesto / Mint & Matcha Iced Tea
Ginger Citrus Soba / Spaghetti Squash with Chickpeas & Kale
Brussels Sprout & Avocado Rice / Edamame Dumplings
Pistachio Ice Cream / Jalapeño Margaritas
Happy New Year!
Today I’m guest posting over at Better Homes and Gardens’ Dish Delish Blog. These granola bars were inspired by their recipe for Chocolate-Peanut Butter Granola Bars which reminded me of the ones my mom used to pack into my school lunch everyday. I might not have that Barbie and the Rockers lunchbox anymore, but I thought it would be fun to recreate this favorite afternoon treat in a healthier way.
My version is packed with goji berries, chia seeds, pistachios, pepitas, (and of course, chocolate)…
These are so quick & easy to make. Click over to the BHG Dish Delish Blog for the recipe details!
Happy almost new year! I hope you all have some really fun plans tonight. Jack and I are going to have a pretty quiet night at home (because, omg, it’s freezing out!), but the wine will be flowing, nonetheless. Here are some bottles we’ve been enjoying recently. All are under $16(!), and are available at wine-carrying Whole Foods Stores.
I got a twitter notification the other day that said “congratulations, exactly 3 years ago you started with Twitter.” I’m not really one for remembering anniversaries, much less blog-o-versaries, but holy crap, 3 years and around 300 recipes later, here we are. I just have two words at the moment: THANKS & cheers!
I’ve been narrowing down some new years eve cocktail ideas – here are a few that caught my eye, check out these and more on my holiday cocktail pinboard. And if you have any ideas, of course leave them below.

I’m calling this my “Merry Christmas Millet Salad”… because why wait until January to eat a little lighter and brighter? This salad is full of everything I love – pretty pomegranates, pistachios, fennel, & mint… and it’s tossed in a light but tangy tahini dressing that’s sweetened with big squeezes of orange.
If you don’t have millet, you could just as easily sub quinoa. I use the two pretty interchangeably (especially when I forget to label my bulk bin bags). What I love about millet is that it almost tastes like semolina couscous, but it’s entirely gluten free and a healthy whole grain. It works really well here with the sweet nutty flavors of the pistachio & tahini.
I hope you all have a merry Christmas and a happy, healthy holiday!
