Slow Cooker Butter Chicken

[unable to retrieve full-text content] Healthy Slow Cooker Butter Chicken made in the crockpot comes out incredibly tender, packed with flavor, and just as good as your favorite take out version. Plus with just 3 Weight Watchers SmartPoints and under 300 calories, it’s a meal you can have again and again, I recently went to Chicago and ate the most amazing butter chicken, better known as Chicken Makhani, from a local takeout restaurant. I hardly ever eat this Indian dish since [...]

February Coffee Date

Oh. Me. Oh. My. This just in: guess what I’ve made six times in the last two weeks? You’re looking at it, sister. I officially belong to the elite club of people who could live off of lemon olive oil cake FOREVER. As an important side note, cake > bread, is it not? so even though this looks like quick bread, let’s just go right ahead and embrace this as full-blown C-A-K-E. Which would imply that cake for breakfast, afternoon-snack, and post-dinner-snack is about to [...]

Cauliflower Potato Curry

[unable to retrieve full-text content] Cauliflower Potato Curry is an Indian dish that is surprisingly easy to make at home instead of picking up the phone for take out. This dish is traditionally called Aloo Gobi, has only 160 calories per serving, and works for Whole30, gluten-free, vegan, Weight Watchers, and clean eating diets. Sometimes I am called the Queen of Cauliflower. It’s a name I fully embrace as cauliflower is something I absolutely love and I am constantly coming up with new [...]

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Soup

For the last hour I’ve been listening to One Direction. Excuse me, JAMMING to One Direction. Why am I susceptible to the music of tween girls? EEEEE. I have a crush on all pop music ever. Cause it would be totally normal that my adult ears would gravitate towards songs with little to no meaning but a get-up-and-move-right-now beat, right? It sounds like candy in my ears. What kind of a person adoringly eats a beautiful Moroccan Salad with [...]

Firecracker Vegan Lettuce Wraps

Why are these little bite-sized nuggets of rolled, frosted, sweet bread called butterhorns? Good question. But in belated honor of Mother’s Day, I am sharing a recipe from Grandma R. My Grandma R – previously mentioned for her apple crisp – has been making these little appetizer/dessert/snack bites for as long as I can remember. Any season, any time of day, any part of the meal… they just work.  Somehow, it seems to always be an appropriate time to [...]

Healthy Chicken Fried Rice

[unable to retrieve full-text content] Forget takeout with this Healthy Chicken Fried Rice, you can enjoy fried rice at home without the guilt. This recipe is easy to make, filled with protein and veggies, and has just 6 Weight Watchers SmartPoints and 366 calories for a big serving. Confession time. I love Panda Express. The orange chicken and fried rice is delicious. Lucky for me, I don’t live anywhere near one and it is an occassional indulgence on road trips since [...]

Basic Soft Pretzels

Out of office! And for good reason. ❤️ For eleven years now, we’ve been going to a cabin with my family and spend the better part of ten summer days boating, eating lunch on the dock, reading, and picking wild blueberries so we can make blueberry pancakes when we wake up at 9am. We = me. It’s a slow and peaceful season that I look forward to literally all year long. But ever since Pinch of Yum came into existence five [...]

Beer Cheese Soup with Soft Pretzels

I’m gettin all healthy on ya today. I’ve been at the grocery store A LOT lately. Grocery shopping has always been a weekly highlight for me, because obviously I live on the edge. Some people spend Saturday at the mall buying shoes; I spend Saturday at the grocery store buying new kinds of flour and chocolate. I mean, um, vitamins. In one of my recent grocery trips, I discovered those bags of prewashed, precut kale in the produce section. [...]

Salted Caramel Brownies

A few weeks ago, I had this experience: I woke up in what is for sure the world’s most comfortable bed -> MY bed. I was well-rested. I was snuggled up next to Sage. I was feeling excited about the work I was going to do that day, because I happen to have one of the best jobs EVER, with tasks including but not limited to writing online to my friends (dats you!), trying new recipes, and then creating THINGS, all [...]
