Summer Squash and Farro Veggie Bowl

Summer Squash and Farro Veggie Bowl  | LemonsandBasil.com

You may not have realized I’ve been a bit MIA, but I HAVE and I’ve missed you! For the first time since I started blogging a year ago, I not only didn’t post twice last week, I didn’t even post once! The decision didn’t come easy, but the time simply wasn’t there. The realization finally set in that I can’t do everything I want to do, and that’s okay. I have to prioritize and make choices. Part of being an adult, right?! …

Raw Lemon Poppy Seed Bites + New House

Raw Lemon Poppy Seed Bites + New House | LemonsandBasil.com

I’m sure food-blogger coaches or growth strategists would say I’m suppose to talk about these Raw Lemon Poppy Seed Bites, preferably in the first paragraph of my text…using keywords to help the recipe pull up better in search engines. No doubt, I should tell you about their cookie dough texture and how the natural sweetness from the honey contrasts perfectly the slight tartness from the lemon zest….

Vegetarian Zucchini White Bean Burgers

Vegetarian Zucchini White Bean Burgers | LemonsandBasil.comI think if you would’ve asked me a couple of years ago if I liked zucchini I would have easily shrugged with a quick “of course, who doesn’t?” However when I look back at my recent recipes, it’s becoming apparent that I’m a little more than just fond of zucchini! Who knew zucchini was so versatile?…

Asian Cauliflower Lettuce Wraps | LemonsandBasil.com

If you read my last post, then you know two things. First, I’m posting two cauliflower recipes in a row. Oops. Second, Josh and I found a house we really like during our rapid house hunt and were contemplating making an offer. So the update is that we now have a contract on that house {insert excited scream here}, and the home inspection is taking place today at 1pm. If all goes well we are scheduled to close in less than two weeks. Eek!…

Balsamic Maple Glazed Cauliflower and Farro

Balsamic Maple Glazed Cauliflower and Farro | LemonsandBasil.comIt’s amazing how quickly life can change. Just when you think you have a plan in place, in the blink of an eye, that plan has been thrown out the window and a new one begins to form. If you’ve followed along for a while, you likely know that Josh and I sold our house and we’re waiting on our rental….

Healthier Peanut Butter Chocolate Rice Krispies

Healthier Peanut Butter Chocolate Rice Krispies | LemonsandBasil.com

Much like these BBQ Tilapia and Sweet Potato Tacos, these Healthier Peanut Butter Chocolate Rice Krispies came as a result of needing to use up some ingredients before our move, and as a last-minute treat to feed our moving helpers! Our poor friends, are likely going to forevermore be busy any time we move in the future. Who knew we had so much STUFF?! …

Chickpea Apple and Avocado Salad + Picnic / Hike

Chickpea Apple and Avocado Salad + Picnic / Hike  | LemonsandBasil.com

After church on Sunday, Josh and I quickly ran home, changed clothes, packed up some lunch and snacks and made our way to Percy Warner Park for a hike! I don’t know about you, but being outside and getting some exercise helps clear my mind and heal my soul. The trail through Percy Warner is not especially beautiful, being that it does not run along a creek, there is no bluff with a beautiful view, nor a glorious waterfall at the end….

Vegan Zucchini Sweet Potato Rolls

Vegan Zucchini Sweet Potato Rolls | LemonsandBasil.comOkay… here is where I admit that I’m a horrible food blogger who did not properly plan and prepare a festive July 4th recipe to share with you…do I lose any and all credibility I may have built up to this point??? I could pretend that I took the route of sharing a small, healthy appetizer with you for your July 4th bash. I could even say that I opted to use a blue and white linen napkin in the spirit of this great holiday, since the food itself is rather lacking in the department of festive spirit {red, white and blue}. But I’m afraid you’d see right through me!…
