Creamy Orange Herb Cashew Dressing

Creamy Orange Herb Cashew Dressing

Now that the weather is finally warming up, salads have started to take center stage on my table. But I will be the first to admit: I’m not a huge fan of them! I find salad to be kind of boring, tedious, and more of a chore than anything else. Until I created this creamy […]

Sweet and Spicy BBQ Beans (Instant Pot Friendly)

Sweet and Spicy BBQ Beans

For years I’ve heard about Britain’s obsession with beans on toast, beans on baked potatoes, beans on everything! I’ve never really understood it, American baked beans are sooo sweet, I can barely eat a couple spoonfuls. But then I thought, what if they weren’t so sweet? What if they were tomato-y, and only slightly sweet, […]

Quick Lemon Parsley Pasta

Quick Lemon Parsley Pasta

When I say this quick lemon parsley pasta comes together fast, I mean FAST. While waiting for the pasta water to boil, I prepped all the ingredients, then did some laundry, checked my email, and washed some dishes.
