roasted carrots with avocado and yogurt

Me and this salad go way back. In 2007 — you know, back in the days when I imagine that all of our conversations might have gone “What should we do today?” “Oh, I don’t know, anything we want.” — I had this salad at the then new-ish Spotted Pig in the West...

crispy tortellini with peas and prosciutto

Several years ago, a harebrained idea to make a wedding cake for friends led to me sharing a picture of the cake layers stacked up in my freezer, ready for their big debut. You’d think people would comment on the cake, right? Nope. More like: “You have an empty freezer. You have an empty...

confetti cookies

The rules of cookie math, whether or not you have underlings dictating them to you, are as follows: Cookies with butter > cookies without butter Cookies with vanilla bean > cookies with vanilla extract Larger cookies > smaller cookies Cookies with fewer words in the title > cookies with more (see: chocolate, butter, Oreos) Cookies with rainbow sprinkles >...

almond rhubarb picnic bars

One of the primary pieces of advice my grandmother imparted on me — besides the fact that she thought I should be a writer, an absurd idea I promptly ignored — was that one should always leave the house looking the best they can. I realize this might sound a little old-fashioned and possibly...

Spiralized Summer Roll Bowls with Hoisin Peanut Sauce

These quick and easy Spiralized Summer Roll Bowls with Hoisin Peanut Sauce made with spiralized carrots and cucumbers were inspired by my shrimp summer rolls. I wanted to take those yummy rolls (which can be a bit more time consuming) and turn them into a super-quick meal, less than 10 minutes! Pictured above is the...

Summer Aubergine Rolls

Hi friends, today we are sharing a dinner recipe that we prepared over the weekend. Some of you might recognize these aubergine rolls as they are a summery version of our Involtini di Melanzane recipe. It has always been one of our favorites and there is also a winter version of it in our Green Kitchen Travels cookbook. This one...

Spring Celebration Salad

There is one thing you have to understand about living in the northern regions of Europe. The darkness during the winter is really, really harsh. Short, cold and grey days with a minimal amount of sunlight. And if you, like me, believe that you were meant to be born in either Italy, Hawaii or...

Slow Cooker Beef Meatballs with Broccoli Rabe

Oh my word, these meatballs are SO good!! I love the broccoli rabe classics – orecchiette with broccoli rabe and sausage, broccoli rabe pizza or simple sauteed with garlic and oil — but I also really love thinking out of the box to find new ways to eat it. The slightly bold, earthy flavor...

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 30)

Skinnytaste Dinner Plan (Week 30)… I am working hard to get back into my normal routine after an AMAZING trip to Europe on my Carnival Cruise but it is so hard after visiting so many beautiful countries! As soon as I returned, I was off again this weekend to shoot some videos with Delallo...

Skinnytaste Fast and Slow Cookbook: Cover Reveal

I’m over-the-moon excited to FINALLY share the cover design and concept for my second cookbook, Skinnytaste Fast and Slow: Knockout Quick-Fix and Slow Cooker Recipes.  Since my first cookbook came out, I’ve gotten tons of requests for more slow cooker recipes and quick dishes that take 30 minutes or less from start to finish.
