Garlic Smashed Sunchokes

I usually like to celebrate upcoming seasonal ingredients with my recipes. However, with spring taking her dear time, I decided to acknowledge the colder months with the sunchoke. The sunchoke is available year round but its popular months are January to April. They are also known as Jerusalem artichokes, a very misleading name because they aren’t anything like an artichoke, and have nothing to do with the Israel. This humble root vegetable is easy to miss at the farmer’s market or grocery store because they’re not all that attractive. Continue reading

Golden Curry Rainbow Bowl

Inday is a quick-serve modern Indian-inspired restaurant in New York City. The menu is full of imaginative, colourful, healthy, and fresh dishes. The recipe today is my version of their Curry Flower, which is cauliflower rice with a turmeric lemongrass curry. I love when a restaurant inspires me to get into my kitchen and cook. Inday did just that.  Continue reading

Grain-Free Hibiscus Pineapple Banana Bread

I’m clearly not over my Maui high because I’m sharing another recipe that I dreamed of on my vacation, a Hibiscus Pineapple Banana Loaf.

A must do tourist activity in Maui is the Road to Hana. It’s a full day road trip, where you take a scenic drive on a very curvy, slightly scary, one way highway to see some of Maui’s most beautiful parks, waterfalls, and views. Prior to the trip no one told me that it’s basically a road trip for some of the most delicious food on the island. The waterfalls were nice but the multiple food stands selling banana bread is what really excited me.  I couldn’t wait to come home and make my healthier grain-free version of pineapple banana bread.

Health Nut Rocky Road


This may be one of my simplest recipes yet. My Health Nut Rocky Road is perfect for those who love chocolate and always seem to have leftover nuts and seeds in their pantry. I mean what better way to enjoy a walnut than have it enrobed in chocolate? In this recipe I share exact measurements for nuts, seeds, and fruit but feel free to switch up the types of nuts, seeds, and fruit, just aim for around 3 cups. Continue reading
