This grilled eggplant and spinach salad makes a wonderfully fresh, healthy, and filling warm weather meal. The eggplant is smoky and delicious, and the smoked paprika in the lemony dressing enhances its flavor even more.
I love how this easy vegan spinach salad is just bursting with freshness and flavor. This definitely isn’t a boring salad.
It’s a great option for a meatless meal, and it will impress the herbivores in your life.
Cooking with plenty of fresh herbs is one of the best ways to give big flavor without adding extra calories.
You can use the suggested herbs and/or throw in what you have on hand – this is the perfect recipe for using those garden herbs.

Roasted asparagus and tomatoes covered in melted parmesan and drizzled with a balsamic reduction.
Up next is another asparagus dish and this time it’s roasted asparagus and tomatoes covered in melted parmesan cheese and drizzled with a balsamic reduction. Roasting the asparagus really brings out its flavour and the roasted tomatoes that are slightly caramelized on the outside and yet still bursting with juiciness on the inside go amazingly well together! The sweet and tart balsamic reduction brings everything home and complements the parmesan cheese perfectly! This parmesan roasted asparagus and tomatoes is so easy to make and it’s a fantastic side dish for any summer meal! Not that you will have any leftovers but if you were to make extra, the leftovers, when sliced up into bite sized pieces, make a great salad for lunch the next day served, cool, room temperature or reheated.

Brie and Chive biscuits are a perfect side to complete your meal. Brie adds some extra flakiness to these buttermilk biscuits & chives for a pop of flavor.
It’s Day 3 of my week of Thanksgiving side dish recipes! Today I have for you some delicious, flavorful, and ridiculously flaky Brie and Chive Biscuits. The original buttermilk biscuit recipe is amazing. But with the added flavor from the chives and extra flakiness from the brie, these are absolutely superb.
I’ve been experimenting with lots of cheeses lately other than the standard cheddar and mozzarella. I’ve found that I’m not too fond of Brie, so I wasn’t sure how much I’d actually like these. But… let’s just say that less than half of these ever made it to the dinner table. Yes. They were that delicious!

Soft, moist, molasses quick bread is perfectly seasoned with ginger and nutmeg. Gingerbread Loaf gives that classic holiday flavor that you love!
This gingerbread loaf is probably going to be one of my favorite holiday breads, just because of all its familiar spices and it smelling just like gingerbread cookies that I love so much. Since I have braces, I won’t be able to eat real gingerbread cookies because they’re just a little too crispy. But I’m okay with that because this is just as good! There is nothing better on a cold winter morning than a warm buttered piece of gingerbread loaf and a hot drink. Like a warm, smooth, spiced cranberry cider
