I love seafood. And what’s better? Seafood with pasta. Pasta with Mussels is such an easy recipe to make.

Summer is in full-swing here in Boston! Farmer’s markets are open on the weekends, and the fresh produce is out of this world. I can’t say that I loved tomatoes while growing up.. but now? I can’t get enough of them! You could easily swap out the tomatoes and use another market find if they just aren’t your thing. Try out asparagus, zucchini, shallots, or onions!
Who doesn’t love big, crunchy croutons? Panzanella is truly a dish made of big, toasty, crusty bread, chopped veggies, and a simple vinaigrette. It’s oh so easy and extra delicious!

There’s something so delightfully simple about it. Tomatoes, mozzarella, and fresh basil.. what could be better? I’ll tell you: Caprese Pasta Salad!

First off, I love swordfish; to me, it is the perfect fish. Admittedly, I never order swordfish at restaurants, because in my experience, it’s always over-cooked and dried out. Swordfish is a very meaty fish, which makes it great for marinades, grilling, etc.. I think that swordfish is a great “entry” fish for those trying to incorporate more marine protein into their diet.
I love a good hearty bowl of chili. This recipe is a nice, simple stovetop recipe that can be prepared in just under an hour. For this chili recipe, I used turkey because I wanted a lighter chili that I could truly enjoy without feeling gluttonous. Besides, the fun part about chili are the toppings, right?
