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.…

Meyer Lemon Green Beans with Almonds

Enjoy these Meyer Lemon Green Beans as an easy, healthier side dish! Ready in just a few minutes. * Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

This Meyer Lemon Green Beans recipe has been updated with new photos as part of the #ThrowbackThursday photography project.

Spaghetti Squash with Turkey Meatballs

Do you remember that scene in “Lady and the Tramp” when Lady and Tramp shared a plate of spaghetti and meatballs under the stars? Of course you do. I bet you even tried slurping your spaghetti at least once, much to your mother’s dismay, and thought about sharing one long spaghetti with a special someone. That doesn’t work by the way, the Godfather and I tried it and it’s really…

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…
