Sweet Potato & Kale Pesto Pizza

Pizza is quite possibly the perfect party food. But there’s no reason it has to be void of nutrition. The combination of sweet potato and kale not only blends wonderfully but it’s healthy too.

Spicy Kiwi and Jalapeno Salsa

The end of tomato season is always a sad one for me. But that doesn’t mean I am not willing to compromise, especially when it comes to salsa. This salsa is tangy, hot, and oh so yummy. Try it! And by the time summer rolls around, you’ll be missing kiwi season for sure!

Roasted Curry Chickpeas

What is the Big Game without a handful of tasty snacks on hand? Especially if they are homemade. Just one of the wonderful things about these roasted curry chickpeas. They are also big on flavor. The curry and cumin really complement the roasted legume and the coriander adds a bit of zing. Plus they are spicy too!
