Cabbage Kale Tahini Slaw

A CSA-inspired salad, this cabbage kale tahini slaw is easy, and most importantly, delicious! * Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

A CSA-inspired salad, this cabbage kale tahini slaw is easy, and most importantly, delicious! I was chatting with some blogger friends recently and the concept of “finding your blog’s niche” arose. If you find the right tiny corner of the internet and post just in one category, your blog is supposed to grow. It seems “everything I think tastes good” – my answer – isn’t a niche. Oh well.…

Greek Oven Roasted Vegetables

Simple, fresh flavors are the best way to dress up this colorful Greek oven roasted vegetables dish. * Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

Simple, fresh flavors are the best way to dress up this colorful Greek oven roasted vegetables dish.  When it comes to vegetables, I appreciate simplicity. It’s not that more complex dishes aren’t fun, but for everyday, simple is best. When the weather gets cooler outside, I like to make oven roasted vegetables because it’s easy, and roasting lends itself well to most in-season winter veggies. It’s fun to change things…

Healthy Spinach Patties

A spinach recipe without cheese! Delicious, healthy, spinach patties are a unique side dish to help you eat your greens! {paleo, whole30, dairy free, gluten free}

Sometimes I get a little overzealous about spinach. I frequently buy the huge warehouse boxes of organic at the store because it’s such a good deal. Normally, this isn’t a problem as one of my favorite quick breakfasts consists of eggs and spinach (savory-breakfast gal here), so I will happily go through the box almost by myself in a week because it’s a great source of calcium, vitamins, lots of…

Brussels Sprouts Salad

It takes just 10 minutes to make this easy and delicious fresh Brussels sprouts salad with flavors inspired by the Mediterranean!

I think I have more Brussels sprouts recipes on this blog than any other single ingredient. I know it’s definitely the most frequently featured vegetable, but I’ve always roasted it or cooked it in some way, and this time I didn’t, so it’s different enough to merit ANOTHER Brussels sprouts post. Brussels sprouts are wonderful in any season, even when you can’t bear the thought of turning on the oven.…

This Meyer Lemon Green Beans recipe has been updated with new photos as part of the #ThrowbackThursday photography project. We enjoy this recipe so much as a quick, healthy side dish alternative to heavier green bean casseroles. I distinctly remember the texture of cold cream of whatever soup in the green bean casserole that came with the Thanksgiving dinners my mom would order at the grocery store. I promise we…

Bacon Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiittttt’s BACON! Well, partially. The other day at the grocery store I spied beautiful stalks of Brussels sprouts and I *needed* it. There may have been a victory dance involved, and I immediately started plotting which of my usual go-to recipes I would make. But then the days passed and I never had the opportunity to make the sprouts for lunch, the only meal for which the Godfather (also resident hater of the…

Cauliflower Flatbread for the Lazy Clean Eater

The lazy clean eater? We are All About That here. If I can skip steps in my healthy recipes to save time in the mealtime dash to get food on the table before the tiny tyrant in the house has a meltdown, I’m doing it. This is actually why I hadn’t posted a veggie flat bread-pizza crust-tortilla-whatever recipe on the blog yet. Most of them seem to require that you pre-cook the…

Pan-Seared Lemon Brussel Sprouts

It’s time for some Godmother “life musings”. If you’d like to skip this part and go straight to the recipe and food talk, please feel free. I still love you, it is okay. I get excited about brussel sprouts too. Recipe talk resumes after the next photo. I do want to take a little moment that defined the rest of my day. As I was unloading the clean dishes from our…
