Shakshuka has quickly become a Saturday brunch staple in our house. Often times I find myself falling asleep on Friday nights thinking “YES, tomorrow is Shakshuka day!” Trust me, it’s that good.
For those of you who may be unfamiliar, Shakshuka is a dish made with poached eggs in a spicy tomato base that was popularized in the Middle East and North Africa. It is perfect for any meal and super quick and easy to whip up.
While the weather in the Bay Area has been pretty perfect (per usual), we are both East Coast natives so we still have a couple cold weather traditions that we just can't give up. One of our favorite things to do in the winter is to cook up a big batch of homemade chili!
With the Holiday's right around the corner (crazy right?!), we know we will soon be stuffing our faces with delicious sweet treats. From Halloween candy, and Thanksgiving pies to never ending Christmas cookies, we are both extremely guilty of giving in to our sweet tooth cravings. So to get ahead of the inevitable, we are creating healthy options to hopefully satisfy some of those cravings.

Lighten up an Italian favorite with this Skinny Alfredo Sauce. Not only is this meal light, it also cooks in less than 30 mins! Let's face it, it's summertime which means spending time over a hot stove is not ideal. Thanks to brands like Giovanni Rana, who make refrigerated pastas that cook in under 5 minutes, we can now enjoy our favorite savory pastas all summer long!
This tomato cream sauce is both easy to throw together but is a lighter option to those classic cream sauce recipes. To prepare most cream sauces, many recipes call for butter and/or heavy cream; we have omitted those and instead use olive oil and regular milk. Despite the saved calories, we promise you'll love it just as much!
