Zucchini “enchiladas” with tomato-braised chicken

Ahhh how has it been a month since I shared a new recipe? Actually, I’ll tell you how… I could give you the standard excuses: work has been insane, I’ve been busy, blah blah blah. But the real reason is that my sister got married on Saturday and the whole wedding business ended up taking…

5 ingredient peanut butter energy balls

I was really hoping last Tuesday would be one of those perfect snowy days where you stare out the window and watch the world turn quiet and white. In case you missed it, Tuesday turned out to be one of those epically over-hyped “blizzards.” Two feet turned into out to be less than 1 and the whole thing was over by…

Little Beet Table (healthy but good)

I, like most people, have always wanted a surprise birthday party. Unfortunately, I also happen to be a big micromanager and the two don’t really go hand-in-hand. It’s pretty hard for someone to plan a party for you when you’re simultaneously coordinating every detail. But recently I got to plan a surprise birthday dinner for my…

PB+J overnight oats

Collard-wrapped turkey burgers

Today marks the official one-year anniversary of the end of a self-imposed hell known as, “The Time Callie and her Sister Did a Two-Week Buzzfeed Clean Eating Challenge.” We’ve talked about this before so there’s no need to rehash the gritty details. Suffice to say, it was pretty miserable-though not as bad as the time I…

GF DF BB (*gluten free, dairy free banana bread)

In the States, we don’t get a lot of GF DF. (That’s gluten free, dairy free for you non-digestively challenged folk). We get GF all the time. We get vegan too. But here’s the thing: I’m not vegan. I enjoy eggs immensely, especially in my baked goods where they’re more or less essential for holding…

Peanut butter overnight oats

If you’ve read any of my past posts, you’ll know I’ve been on a kick called “Callie discovers breakfast recipes that were popular two or so years ago.” I started with egg muffins. Then I learned about vegan muffins. Today, I’m going to tell you about my recent experiences with overnight oats. Now, I’m not…
