Blackberry Serrano Brie and Bacon Grilled Cheese

I mean, I wouldn’t call this sandwich light, but it’s certainly worth the indulgence.

Im a huge fan of sweet and spicy, like my Blackberry Serrano Margarita recipe. This sandwich has it all; Sweetness from the blackberry jam, some heat from the serranos, a salty crunch from the bacon and creaminess from the brie all in between two slices of crust, buttery sourdough bread.

Turn this into an appetizer by using crustini and then top with all of the ingredients!

Roasted Poblano and Pepper Jack Chicken Enchiladas

I’ve never really used poblanos before and I have no idea why because they are amazing. Tons of flavor and only very slight heat. Roasting them makes them a little sweeter too. Perfect way to introduce kids to a little heat!

Vegan Roasted Corn and Zucchini Chowder

I love corn in the summer. It’s so sweet and delicious! It’s also perfect for vegan soups, as the starchy content of the corn helps add creaminess and thickness without using cream, butter or flour. I blended the zucchini with the corn, but I feel you want the more traditional slightly yellow color of a corn chowder, only blend the corn.

Spiralized Cantaloupe and Prosciutto Salad

Skinny Taste shared a video on Facebook of spiralizing cantaloupe and I immediately knew I was going to make a salad out of it. It adds the perfect amount of cantaloupe in each bite without overpowering the other flavors.

Crab Stuffed Salmon

What can be better than seafood stuffed with more seafood? The crab stuffing really elevates the salmon, adding an element of creaminess and richness without the calories of a typical decadent sauce.

Crab Rangoon Dip

Have you ever ordered crab rangoons at a Chinese or Thai restaurant? They are delicious little parcels of crab and cream cheese wrapped in a fried wonton. Since we’re trying to eat healthy here, let’s skip the fried outside and just make the filling into a dip.

Shrimp Po’ Boy Bowl

Have you ever had a Po’ Boy from Louisiana? They are massive sandwiches with toasty French bread and typically some sort of fried seafood. I decided to lighten it up by baking the shrimp and making it into a salad.

Cuban Wrap

I love recipes like the Slow Cooker Cuban Pulled Pork because it always makes such versatile leftovers! Cooking for a family of two can be difficult, because while you definitely end up using the leftovers the next night or for lunch, sometimes you get tired of the same thing.

Slow Cooker Cuban Pulled Pork

I love meals where you can set it and forget it in the slow cooker and pulled pork is perfect for that. This one is Cuban style, which has a citrus flair to it. I also used cardamom instead of the typical coriander because I thought the citrus notes of the cardamom would compliment the oranges.
