I don’t know why I’m not eating this salad every single day. It’s so easy to put together, and really packs a healthy punch. And my goodness, it’s satisfying. First, remember that salads like this are so great for cleaning that fridge of yours. So pull out your jarred olives, pickles, forgotten veggies ~ you name it ~ and throw it all in. And I … Continue reading Easy Spinach Salad.
This is an absolute keeper! It’s our new go-to meal, and the leftovers are even more delicious. If you chop up all your veggies and keep them separate in the fridge, you can make this dish over and over when you need a quick lunch. Or you can change it up and turn it into a salad. Just heat up and pour over fresh spinach. … Continue reading egg roll in a bowl!
Please Pho-give me, my beautiful Vietnamese friends. I clearly have a pun problem. I’m in therapy Pho it. Let’s just move on. If you’ve ever watched someone serve Vietnamese Pho, there’s this really cool technique they use. It’s a trick that allows the veggies to stay crunchy, and gives a super fresh flavor to everything. It’s really easy to get dinner on the table too. … Continue reading Pho-getting 2020.
Folks, I really couldn’t find a flattering angle for these absolutely delicious stuffed peppers. Dull and lackluster, I’m afraid. But do you promise that you’ll trust me and just try this easy and incredible dish anyway? The flavor is anything but dull ~ I swear. All you need is tuna, peppers, some kind of soft cheese, fresh spinach, and hot sauce! It’s not even worth … Continue reading Tuna Stuffed Peppers.
I have a little confession to make. I’m on a little 30-day Keto reset, and it is GLORIOUS!!! (I just sang that in my best Hallelujah Chorus voice) Don’t worry ~ I’m not going to try to convince you to do it too! I’m just going to keep on providing recipes made with whole foods like I normally do ~ that’s all! I have “Keto-dapted” … Continue reading Golden Turmeric Chicken Soup.
Lobster Quiche? Oooh la laaaa ~ how fancy! Lobster is definitely on my list of top five favorite foods. The texture, the flavor, the richness ~ I just can’t get enough. And I almost feel like it should never be eaten any other way but by itself, with some clarified butter. To hide it in a quiche seems like a sacrilege. But we bought this … Continue reading Lobster Quiche.
Oh oh oh….it’s Pho… Actually, it should be “Uh, uh, uh…it’s Pho”. Am I pronouncing that right? I’ve heard it sounds like “fuh” as in, “fuhhh-get about it”, or “FUnyons”. Right? Anyway, I love love LOVE this Vietnamese tricked out, flavor-packed, cure-what-ails-you, chicken-soup. If you make this healing broth from scratch, there are strange, frightening animal bones involved. I’m not afraid of any of that … Continue reading CHICKEN ZOODLE PHO.
Hello friends! I just noticed it has been a few months since my last post. I am going through a lot of changes in my life. All are good, I promise! But my world is sort of turned upside-down in the meantime. There’s so much exciting opportunity on the horizon, but I’m afraid I might be stuck in the trenches right now. My little Pixy-Kitchen … Continue reading ch-ch-changes…

And the one I’m going … Continue reading Vive la Buddha Bowl!
I just had a realization that these little Paleo/Plant-based meals could be tapas! And this one for sure. This little dish is way too elegant for a 1pm snack on a Wednesday, but I’m not complaining. Here’s how it’s done: There are three easy-to-make components of this dish ~ all of which you can make and store in your fridge until it’s all used up. … Continue reading Grilled Asparagus with Gribiche & Crispy Prosciutto.
