{Recipe Redux} Boozy Chocolate + Peanut Butter Berries

Ready for some strawberries with a twist?…Finally I’ve figured out how to combine my two favorite things – booze + healthy dessert.

This month’s Recipe Redux prompt:

“From plain Jane vanilla extract to fancy-pants elderflower liqueur, we like to keep a little liquor in the kitchen. Show us how you like to cook, bake or mix-it-up with spirits, extracts and other alcohols. A splash of vodka makes summer sauces shine – and liqueurs brighten desserts: What’s your healthy recipe with spirit?”Boozy Berries

When I first got the theme news, it occurred to me that I rarely cook/bake with alcohol- I prefer to just drink it ;) But, here I was in charge of chocolate covered strawberries for a family party this past weekend and thought what the heck?- let’s spike things up a bit.  WOW- did it work!  Continue reading

Harmony Bowl

What the h#@! is a Harmony Bowl, you may be wondering? It is my very own version of a Buddha Bowl, which typically consists of veggie scraps, grain, seasoning and avocado.  These tasty bowls are a great way to use up leftover veggies, plus they are SUPER healthy and easy to make.

Once upon a time, I was born in a tiny little town called New Castle, Delaware on Harmony Street. I know, how cute is that?! It’s my happy place, hence the name of this delicious dish. This mixture of super foods and veggies will also bring harmony to your body, so eat up and enjoy!

Roasted Pepper + Mango Salmon

It was only a couple months ago I posted the Cucumber Mango Salsa + Jalapeños recipe.  What I didn’t realize at the time is not everyone shares my love for super spicy dishes (i.e. my mom’s mouth was not happy when I served it atop tilapia at family dinner).

Since then, I have experimented with a milder version to complement my staple summertime salmon salads or really any other dish that needs a little extra sweetness. Enjoy!

Mediterranean Tuna Salad

I absolutely love tuna salad. Want to know what I don’t love? Commercial “tuna” salads that are flavorless and swimming in mayonnaise! What a waste of calories.

This Mediterranean Tuna Salad is one of my favorite meal makeovers. It’s fresh, light and full of flavor sans mayo. Try serving on top of mixed greens, in a pita, or alongside rice crackers for a delicious, gluten-free lunch.

  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • salt/pepper
