Brown Sugar Meringues w/ Strawberries + Cream

Meringues made with Brown Sugar! They're crispy and chewy and taste like caramel. Pair them with whipped cream and Pimm's infused strawberries. Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com!

I saw this recipe for Brown Sugar Meringues in the new cookbook A Modern Way to Eat (which I looooove BTW!) and was immediately intrigued because they looked like chocolate.... but they're made with brown sugar. Have you ever had a Violet Crumble? These kinda taste like that. They're chewy, crispy and have a hint of burnt caramel to them. I'm obsessed.

I whipped cream....

And tossed strawberries in honey, lime zest and Pimm's and the rest is history. I immediately ate three...and this is coming a person who isn't really a meringue lover. THEY ARE BONKERS. Fluffy, puffy, crunchy, chewy, carmel-like meringues! Did I mention that I put Pimm's in the strawberries?!?!

Beet + Avocado Poke Bowls

Love Ahi Poke but can't find good raw ahi? Make it with BEETS & AVOCADO instead. Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com!

The Ahi Tuna Poke Bowl recipe in Sprouted Kitchen's new cookbook  Bowl + Spoon caught my eye recently. I'm still looking for a good local source for sushi grade ahi tuna, so in the meantime I thought I'd try out the recipe but substitute the ahi for the beets I had in my fridge.

I mean...chioggia beets kinda look like fish! Right?!

I threw a regular beet in the mixture and the bright red juice beautifully colored the lighter beets.

My experiment definitely paid off! The wasabi sriracha dressing and the sweetness of the beets, the crunch of the cucumber, the creaminess of the avocado, the sesame seeds and the nori create the most amazing "sushi bowl."  Btw- this sushi salad bowl is pretty amazing too!

It made for the perfect lunch when we worked from home last week. Beets for the win!!!!

Blistered Shishito Peppers

Blistered Shishito Peppers // shutterbean

Shishito peppers are popping up in the stores these days. I just bought some from Trader Joe's! Like...a lot of them. I usually throw them on the grill with a little bit of olive oil and some kosher salt but yesterday I didn't feel like turning on the grill. I just sautéed them in a non-stick pan with a little bit of olive oil and salt...turned the gas on high and cooked them until they blistered & softened. Within a few minutes I created a very healthy/satisfying and I didn't have to man the grill.

By the way...they're amazing on pizza!

Tropical Smoothie Bowls

Tropical Smoothie Bowl made with Aloha Daily Good Greens Powder. It's the perfect way to kick-start your day with tons of nutrients ! Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com

I fell out of love with smoothies awhile ago. I didn't really mean too....it's just that I prefer to eat food rather than drink it.

Tropical Smoothie Bowls // shutterbean

But recently....I fell in love HARD with smoothie bowls because it's a smoothie IN A BOWL.

It's a thicker smoothie--- one you eat with a spoon. No straw necessary.

Just a spoon and TOPPINGS.

Tropical Smoothie Bowls // shutterbean

And it's allllll about the toppings. Because it's almost like having a bowl frozen yogurt with fruit!

I made this here tropical smoothie bowl in partnership with ALOHA. I'm so excited to be working with them as I LOVE their green powders & superfood chocolate bars.  For this recipe I mixed frozen bananas with frozen berries, coconut cream, pineapples and fortified the smoothie with a packet of Aloha's Daily Good Greens Powder. For toppings, I added fresh bananas, pineapple, raspberries and toasted coconut for some extra crunch. Talk about healthy!

I think it's safe to say that I made this recipe for two and ended up eating both servings. Sorry, Cooper!  Obviously, I didn't want the smoothie bowl goodness to end.

Pizza Rolls

Turn store bought pizza dough into a quick weeknight dinner. These pizza rolls are like cinnamon rolls but PIZZA!  Find the recipe at Shutterbean.com

It's Sunday night and I've got a mountain of laundry waiting to be folded, a stiff cocktail by my side, and an episode of Mad Men on my DVR to dive into so I'll keep this brief.

PIZZA ROLLS ARE LIKE CINNAMON ROLLS BUT WITH PIZZA TOPPINGS!

The sauce! The cheese! The pepperoni and the basil! It's all too good.  The cheese melts and pepperoni meld together inside of the rolls while the inside marinara seeps out of the bottom...mixing with melted cheese to make an incredible crust.  Can't get enough!
