The BEST cauliflower pizza crust — so flavorful and surprisingly easy to make. Low carb, nutritious, fiber & protein packed. Topped the crust with whatever your heart desires. You’re going to be making this again and again!

Remember when cauliflower came onto the food scene a few years back? Now it’s become so popular that it’s hard to find a restaurant that doesn’t have roasted cauliflower on their menu. It’s even mainstream enough that Trader Joe’s makes cauliflower rice AND cauliflower pizza crust (have you tried it?).

Abra, AK brand manager & the veggie loving queen she is, even likes to put frozen cauliflower in her morning smoothies. YOU CRAZY ‘BRA (that’s her nickname.)

Quick and flavorful cucumber bites topped with delicious pesto flavored Genova tuna, fresh tomato and basil, creamy mozzarella, and a drizzle of homemade balsamic reduction. These little Caprese bites are light, healthy, and perfect for entertaining! 

Not sure if you guys are happy about zucchini week being over or completely devastated. I’m ready for a little something different in the recipe rotation because guess what I learned? Tony hates zucchini. He told me this after he picked the roasted zucchini out of the enchilada casserole I made. Funny enough, he did completely demolished several slices of my chocolate zucchini cake with zero complaints.

Heh. Men.

Sweet potato zoodle bowls with saucy turmeric coconut milk sauce and a hint of peanut flavor. The sauce is SO amazing you’ll want to lick the bowl clean!

Well it’s officially the end of zucchini week. Abra and I really had a delicious week here baking with green things and spiralizing our hearts out and we hope you loved it too. I also had a wedding freakout about how expensive things are getting.

Everyone says it’s going to be perfect come the day of, but whoa. What the hell? This shit is crazy. Tony and I have this amazing, beautiful life together and can have it without a giant party. In fact this giant party of a wedding is just causing me a ridiculous amount of stress. I 100% understand why people hire wedding planners now. I’m going out of my damn mind.

Ok, moving on. Hah.

Amazing sweet potato taco bowls packed with plant based protein and your favorite southwest flavors, then drizzled with Bolthouse Farms Avocado Ranch yogurt dressing! Easy to make ahead of time & perfect to pack for lunch.

Oh hey Monday. I hope you guys had an amazing (and hopefully) shorter week last week. My mom and I spent some much needed time together exploring and walking around Chicago, getting pedicures, baking tahini brownies, new muffin recipes, and making her amazing Puerto Rican food that I haven’t had since I was 18. Where does the time go?

Every time I’m with my mom, I’m inspired to go back to the authentic flavors of Latin cuisine that I grew up with. Sofrito, homemade sazon, plantains, green chile and so much more. I can’t wait to start incorporating those flavors more into my recipes and teaching you all about the food that’s near and dear to my heart.

Tofu, Cauliflower, sweet potatoes, bell pepper, garlic, turmeric, ginger and simmer in in this coconut curry dish made in partnership with Nasoya Tofu. Vegan and gluten free too!

Over the past year I’ve become OBSESSED with curry flavors. Don’t ask this Puerto Rican girl why, but I think it’s because there is a Thai neighborhood just up the block. The exotic spices are aromatic and wander in and out of the streets. In a way, the smells are inviting me to come in a try something I’ve never had before, which is often what Tony and I try to do when we go out.

Lately it’s been all about that curry life. I love slurping up a big bowl of coconut curry from our local vietnamese restaurant Tank Noodle, or trying a spicy version over rice; not only is it comforting, but I feel like there’s something really healing about a good curry.
