Beet Salad

Beautiful, colorful salad full of surprises, from avocado, to ginger, to sesame seeds. Super easy and tasty holiday side! | littlebroken.com @littlebroken #side #salad #beets #thanksgivingside

My recollection of eating beets growing up were either in a salad form (Shuba, Vinegret) or Borscht (beet soup). First salad is pretty much non-existent in my house today just because I’m not a fan of mayo based salads and second salad I make on occasion as well as Borscht. But other than that, I recently realized that I don’t know how to prepare beets in any other form. When I should be all over them as they are naturally sweet, low in calories and high in fiber. Super good and healthy!…

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Whipped Cream and Pecan Praline_littlebroken (6)

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Whipped Brown Sugar Cream and Pecan Praline

It’s been too long since I shared a cupcake recipe! Personally, I love miniature desserts and cupcakes fit right in that title. Now, I know, there’s cupcakes in all shapes and sizes out there but when compared to a cake, I feel like they’re still “miniature.” Plus everyone loves a cupcake! Super easy to serve…

Shrimp and Cilantro-Lime Quinoa Burrito Bowl

I’ve had this burrito bowl playing in my head for weeks now. We have an amazing local Mexican place that is known for delicious authentic Mexican food and guacamole bar in front of your table -yum! (which BTW I can live off of!). Usually, I’m a fajita person. Chicken or shrimp is my pick but…

Ricotta Hotcakes

Nothing says weekend to me like breakfast with the family with big pot of coffee watching Food Network in pj’s. That’s a typical Saturday in my house and probably my favorite part of the whole weekend! And since it’s only Tuesday today, we’re going to start the countdown to the weekend today because….well, why not!? Everything…

Healthy fall salad with delicious and only clean ingredients | littlebroken.com @littlebroken #quinoa #butternutsquash #salad

Butternut Squash and Cranberry Quinoa Salad

There’s no doubt I’ve been on a quinoa kick lately. Pearl-shaped supergrain high in protein, gluten free, and with 8 essential amino acids that our bodies crave, making it a complete protein! Much healthier than rice or pasta and definitely lighter on your stomach. Quinoa is very bland when cooked and eaten as is but…

Crispy Baked Crab Bites with Spicy Aioli

Fall has finally arrived or at least on the east cost. The days are getting shorter, evenings a little bit cooler and football is back. When I moved to Maryland, I didn’t know anything about football but after couple years of living here, I quickly learned what purple Sunday meant. Living in the hometown of…

30-Minute Sesame Chicken Quinoa Bowl

I love a good stir fry. It has all the features of a perfect weeknight meal. It’s quick, nutritious, and delicious. When days get hectic, I turn to a stir fry. I love the idea of throwing chicken, beef, or shrimp with whatever veggies I have in the fridge or freezer. Whisking up a flavorful…

Meatless Monday never tasted so good! Hearty and chunky lentil chili much healthier than your traditional chili but tastes exactly like your favorite bowl of ground beef chili! |littlebroken.com @littlebroken #meatlessmonday #vegetarian #chili

Lentil Chili

“Meatless?” That was hubbys reaction when I said we’re having vegetarian chili but after few bites I won him over. I had my doubts a little too when I first made this chili as I’m always a little skeptical of dishes that are changed to an extreme to make them “healthier.” Like substituting chocolate with…

Potato, Bacon, and Dill Vareniki (Perogies)

 Happy Sunday friends! I’ve been on somewhat of hiatus this week but not by choice. I love and hate routine. I definitely love it during the weekdays but hate it on weekends. I like to get my thrill on once in a while and do something unplanned and unexpected but during weekdays, I do enjoy…
