BBQ Chicken Smothered Sweet Potato Fries

BBQ Chicken Smothered Sweet Potato Fries are an example of my ideal meal anatomy.

You’ve got the base – simply baked sweet potato fries in all their carby splendor. Pile on some protein made flavorful via sauce or spices. Add a generous heaping of toppings like chopped veggies and herbs. Drizzle on extra sauce to truly get things going.

That’s the exact formula for my (insanely similar) Buffalo Chicken Smothered Fries recipe. In a way, this feels like cheating…but frankly, I enjoyed this meal too much to keep it to myself!


Mediterranean Watermelon Salad |

Mediterranean Watermelon Salad

Summer is here and 4th of July is just around the corner—my Mediterranean Watermelon Salad is perfect for both!

I originally made this salad in 2016 for a cookout with friends. I wasn’t sure what the reaction would be (I honestly threw the ingredients together willy-nilly) but everyone enthusiastically gobbled it up. Soon my guests asked for the recipe. For a food blogger, that’s a sure sign you’ve got a winning combo on your hands!

I jotted down what I remembered and vowed to make it again. But autumn came too quickly and I missed the window for summery watermelon recipes. Once summer rolled around this year, I was itching to recreate this recipe.

It’s finally ready for you!


Easy Paleo Peach Barbecue Sauce |

Easy Peach Barbecue Sauce

As soon as the weather started warming up, I knew something like this Easy Peach Barbecue Sauce was going down. I’d never made my own barbecue sauce, but I felt an itch for it.

I picked up my favorite fruit (mangoes) at the grocery store. I had my heart set on mango barbecue sauce (which might still happen), but the the same day someone left a comment on my gym’s members-only Facebook group: Pounds and pounds of peaches at the gym. For free. Take what you like.

With 10+ pounds of peaches in hand the next day, I decided peach barbecue sauce would be just as good!

Chocolate Maca Banana Smoothie

Gotta love a nice and simple smoothie where nearly all the ingredients make the recipe title. That’s what you’ll find in this Chocolate Maca Banana Smoothie. Easy, chocolate-y, super thick satisfaction. Couldn’t ask for anything more in a smoothie!

Whether you drink smoothies on the daily or whip them up when you need a silky, refreshing treat, I bet you’re going to love this one.
