Learn how to make a frittata with this simple guide + 5 recipe variations! Perfect for any meal from brunch to dinner, they're easy and delicious.

A frittata is my #1 favorite brunch item to make at home. It’s easy and versatile, so I thought with Easter coming up this weekend, you may like a frittata recipe idea… or five! I usually make my frittatas with whatever vegetables I have on hand, which means that I’ve tried a whole bunch of various combinations over the years. Below are a few of my favorites along with some tips. First things first though, you may be asking… what is a frittata? Some call a frittata a crustless quiche (although, I call a quiche a crust-full frittata). It’s an…

Made with chickpea flour, this easy flatbread is gluten-free. Its spiced, falafel-like flavor is delicious with your favorite Mediterranean toppings!

It’s cookbook season! Yes, my new book just came out last week, but if you know me, you know that I LOVE cookbooks, and I can never have too many. More is more when it comes to food inspiration 🙂 Today, I’m excited to share a book by my friend Liz Moody (you might know her as the food editor of Mind Body Green), but she also has a great blog, fantastic podcast, and this new book called Healthier Together. I think you’ll love it! The concept of the book is that if you’re trying to eat healthier, you’re more…

Baked Oatmeal with Blueberries

This healthy baked oatmeal recipe makes for a delicious brunch! I love this blueberry version, but for a twist, swap in whatever seasonal fruit you like.

The past few days have been SO nice out! We’ve been going for long walks with light(er) coats on – feeling the glorious sunshine without being bundled up in scarves, hats, and gloves. It’s funny the things you learn to appreciate as the seasons change. So speaking of sunny thoughts, my mind is on brunch this weekend and I’m feeling fruity. With Easter, Mother’s Day, and other brunch-y holidays on the horizon, I thought I’d share one of my favorite recipes to make for a group… baked oatmeal! I love this recipe because you can assemble it ahead of time and…

Healthy Banana Bread

This easy, healthy banana bread has it all - it’s moist, nicely spiced, and simple to make. Enjoy it for breakfast or an afternoon snack!

While bananas may not be my favorite fruit, banana bread is a whole other story. When I bake banana bread, I lose all control. Just knowing that a loaf is sitting on the kitchen counter will make me come back for just one more slice all day long. It’s the perfect afternoon snack with a cup of coffee, and I love how wonderful it makes the house smell. Side note: this bread freezes well, which is how I was able to exhibit any sense of portion control as we tested loaf after loaf. 🙂 Why I Love This Vegan Banana Bread…

Creamy Chipotle Sauce

This easy chipotle sauce is one of my favorite condiments to keep on hand! It's great for dipping and for spicing up your favorite tacos & bowls.

I say this all the time, but I truly believe that the key to a great veggie meal (or any meal, really) is a great sauce! With a great sauce on hand, you can use whatever veggies/grains/proteins you have to easily make salads, bowls, tacos, or sandwiches any night of the week. This smoky, creamy chipotle sauce is one of my absolute favorites to punch up any meal. It started as a sauce to the cauliflower tacos in my first cookbook and now I love it on everything from burrito bowls to breakfast tacos. It’s also great as a sweet potato fries dipping…
