Butternut squash is a tricky little thing. If you buy it pre-cubed, it goes bad so quickly. But if you buy it whole, shaped like a long pear with an uber-thick exterior, what would you do with it?!
I like this dish even more than baked brie (and that’s saying a lot, my friends.) It will certainly garner oooohs and ahhhhhs at a dinner party, but I’d almost prefer it for dinner for just me and Chris with a big ole’ green salad. And I promise you, it’s so much easier than it looks.

This dish is an easy and flavorful accompaniment to barbecued salmon, a whole roast chicken—nothin’ wrong with an organic one from Whole Foods!—or a brunch spread. And the best part? It’s even better the next day.
If you’re new to the spritz scene, it’s a refreshing and dry (slightly bitter) bubbly cocktail with a low alcohol content.
The summer appetizer even your guests will happily assemble. Thread your own antipasto skewers ahead of time, or make those diners earn their dinner.
A s’more, like anything you eat, is only as good as the ingredients you use. I transformed four of my favorite flavor combinations—mint chocolate, salted caramel, lemon meringue pie, and dark chocolate BACON— into s’mores so you could excite those little taste buds of yours.
When making an authentic Greek salad, there are two things to mind. First—you may not use lettuce (I know, I know, you’ll never catch me saying that about any other kind of salad.) And second—the feta is better if it comes in a big salty block.
Stay cool with these dairy-free (and refined sugar-free) popsicles! They’re easy to make and can be amended to include your favorite fruit(s). Try layering in some blueberries to add a festive pop to your Fourth of July celebration!
This cocktail is a fun project. If you want to make a simple version, skip the fancy steps, and muddle then shake your raspberries, plain gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and aquafaba.
The easiest homemade, brown-bag popcorn in three flavors: plain, cheesy pepper (dairy free!), and cinnamon sugar.
A lovely substitute for coffee, or for me, a 3pm pick-me-up when the alternative is curling up for a nap I don’t have the luxury of taking. Whipping up (literally) this matcha latte has become a peaceful break in my day.
Eat it on toast or off of a spoon, or freeze into balls for an easy, clean treat. And if you want to get next-level, combine it with soy sauce for a Thai-like chicken satay dipping sauce. ✌🏻

All store bought hummus really needs is (well, first—to be removed from its plastic tub. Please, please, please. 🙏🏻) an artful spoon swirl, a drizzle of olive oil, and a fun and festive topping.
I hate playing favorites (because, moderation, people), and it’s important to mix things up, but I freaking love coconut oil. And I use it all the time. For things you wouldn’t even imagine.
True to its name, this recipe was born as my best friend and I sat on her kitchen floor hungrily peering through the oven window waiting for our dinner to roast.
The fizzy, tart, and refreshing Moscow Mule is a favorite—and the best part is of course the copper mug it’s served in. A girlfriend recently shared this healthy “mule makeover” with me though and I love it even more than the original.
