Turkey Ricotta Meatballs

You need these Turkey Ricotta Meatballs in your life. As soon as possible. You won’t even miss the fact that there is no beef, veal or pork. They are super flavorful,  and they never dry out- thanks to the ricotta. And…they take very little time to put together. It’s a win all around. Even the biggest meat lovers love these non-traditional meatballs. 

Guilt-free with all the flavor. Per favore

Strawberry Banana Bread

Sometimes you go to the farmer’s market and buy a half flat of strawberries. Sometimes you have a bunch of bananas you forgot to eat in their 32 second window or perfectness. Sometimes you put all of it together to make something magical. Strawberry Banana Bread is it.

Say YES to Good Palm Oil.

It’s time to say yes to GOOD palm oil.

I am always looking for ways to incorporate sustainable and ethically sourced products into my kitchen and cooking. I was tickled to hear about this new campaign for RSPO’s GOOD Palm Oil.

May 23rd marked the launch of RSPO’s  exciting new global campaign, which highlights the many consumer goods that contain palm oil, and that everyone can make a choice between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ palm oil.

This blog post is sponsored by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil. Although this post is sponsored, all opinions are my own.

Asparagus Tips with Cucumber Vinaigrette #BloggerCLUE

As spring rolls around once more, it is time to start thinking about what to serve at Easter. With all the bright, fresh, crisp colors of the new season we have so much to choose from. Luckily, to help even more, the Blogger C.L.U.E. theme this month is Easter so we’ll get you everything you need to please ol’ Peter Cottontail.

This month I was paired with Wendy from A Day in the Life on the Farm and I had a lovely time looking through her blog. There was so much to choose from, of course. I was on the hunt though for something light, crisp and fresh– so as soon as I saw the Asparagus Tips with Cucumber Vinaigrette– I knew I’d found my post!

Italian Soup for #BloggerCLUE

It’s not often cold here, really cold anyway, and we’ve had a bit of a cold snap come through, so this was the perfect time to work on this month’s Blogger C.L.U.E. theme– soups & stews. Who doesn’t love a good belly warming bowl of comforting soup?

I was assigned to Authentic Suburban Gourmet and went right to “work” looking for a scrumptious soup to dish up. I didn’t stew over it for long (see what I did there) as I quickly came across Perfect Italian Soup, and it had my name written all over it. At this time of year I really crave a nice bowl of ribollita which makes me fondly remember my time living in Florence, Italy. Ribollita is a rustic soup made with vegetables, and bread- it translates to reboiled, as it’s a peasants soup that dates back centuries. It is classically Tuscan and perfectly delizioso. Ribollita, GOOD ribollita, is really hard to find here, but I’m always up for something with an Italian flair, and although this is a different kind of soup, it’s a great recipe to have on hand when the temperatures drop. So here’s my take on Lisa’s Italian Soup.

Massaged Kale Salad #BloggerCLUE

The holidays can be rough on everyone– and everything. Your wallet, your energy, your diet. As we head into a fresh, new 2016, everyone needs some rejuvenating… a massage even. You, me, a couple bunches of kale. We deserve it. 

With all the resolutions, vows to quit sugar, exercise more, drink less… it is easy to get overwhelmed. Luckily, the Blogger C.L.U.E. crew has your sorted. This month the theme is healthy eating recipes so you can stack your meal calendar with good (for you) food galore. 

This Massaged Kale Salad is where it’s at. Give it a go.

Cape Cod Mule – Cranberry Moscow Mule

Happy Holidays, friends! I hope you are all having a joyous and festive season. I think we deserve a beverage, it’s happy hour somewhere, right? We’ve worked hard, managed the shopping lines and wrapped all the gifts. We’ve earned it.

Last year it was the Randy Reindeer, this year it’s the Cape Cod Mule- Cranberry Moscow Mule. It’s a little tart and sensationally sippable. The cranberry gives it a little seasonal kick (but, who am I kidding, you could drink this all year long) and adds another layer of festive flavor.
