By posting this recipe, I am entering my recipe into the Taste the Mighty Concord Welch’s Recipe Contest, a sponsored recipe contest in which I am eligible to win prizes. I was not compensated for my time. The inspiration for this recipe was an attempt to satisfy my love for sweet + savory + spicy flavor combinations. Welch's 100% Concord Grape Juice is the perfect sweetness to compliment a savory application in my Sweet & Spicy Grape Dipping Sauce. I used the flavors found
Happy Sunday, everyone! Are you enjoying the beautiful weather we are having? Yesterday, I took some time to get outside and enjoy the fresh air and it felt SO good. Instead of heading to my usual Saturday class at my yoga studio I took my mat out into the sun to do a little practice on my own. What did you do this weekend to enjoy the weather?

The recipe doesn't call for flour so to bind everything together I’m using a vegan hemp seed pr
This article was originally published through WELLSEEK. From lattes to curries, turmeric is making a name for itself in today’s culinary creations. But turmeric has a rich history rooted in the Vedic culture in India dating back nearly 4,000 years! Its use has both religious and culinary significance in India. Known for its stunning yellow color, turmeric is referred to as “Indian Saffron.” I love both the religious and culinary importance turmeric has in the Indian culture.
Full disclosure: this recipe was my husband's idea. When I'm having trouble brainstorming new recipes I turn to him because I know he'll be able to bounce ideas back and forth. Plus, who better to turn to for a football Sunday inspired recipe than THE sports fan in our household. I have to admit when it comes to the Big Game I show up for the food, drinks and friends...football not so much. I enjoy the excitement and atmosphere and love getting together with friends and famil
