Happy Father’s Day!: Grilled Hamburger Salad

Happy Father’s Day!: Grilled Hamburger Salad

Creamy Artichoke Soup

A great soup for spring/summer!  And it’s super quick to prepare, too.  I’ve made this as a Core Plan soup with just a few redskin potatoes because they really add a creamy body to the soup.  However, you can make this Advanced Plan by simply replacing the redskins with 2/3 cup pureed white beans. Easy…

One Pot Wonders: Ratatouille

Another reason I looove One Pot Wonders is the fact that no matter the recipe, it always tastes better the next day!  It’s something about leaving it in the fridge to let the flavors combine so perfectly that just gets me. One Pot Wonders Day 3 is Ratatouille.  I started making and thoroughly enjoying this…

Fresh Spring Rolls (GUEST POST!)

Farmers markets are a bustling, and it’s the perfect time of year to try something new with fresh veggies!  This recipe comes from my friend Diane.  I had never had spring rolls before, and these were a fabulous dinner!
