Roasted Acorn Squash stuffed with Quinoa

We encourage eating locally and foods that are in season. Our farmers’ markets, roadside stands and local grocers are bursting at the seams with a variety of squash.

Sesame Broccoli Salad

We enjoy a variety of salads on warm summer nights. The other day I had a craving for broccoli salad with a sesame Tamari dressing. I have enjoyed versions with this dish when ordering Asian food. Sesame and Tamari go so very well together. I also look for ways to incorporate apple cider vinegar into…

4 Ingredient Two-Tone Peanut Butter Cups

The other day I had a pretty intense craving for chocolate and peanut butter…it was a need that just had to be met! Luckily for us, we almost always have chocolate chips, peanut butter and coconut oil on hand 🙂 You may also appreciate, as did we, that these are super quick and easy to…
