If you’re a follower on social media, you may have seen a few posts about another project I’ve been working on since late May. It’s called 30 to Lifestyle–a health and fitness website that features a 30-day challenge with curated exercises and recipes. Perhaps you guessed that I’m creating the recipes, which would be correct. The months have flown by as I’ve been working on ideas, a handful of which have been based around our sponsors. This one features a spiralizer from Oxo who signed up on a prize contributor a couple of weeks ago. I have a number of their products in my kitchen, as I’m sure many of you do as well. They’re sturdy, reliable and span the range of indispensable to task-specific. I would throw this spiralizer into the latter category. It may not be a foundation tool for anyone looking to stock their kitchen, it is a piece of equipment that will enhance the way you incorporate fruits and vegetables into your meals. Here’s a recipe that incorporates Oxo’s hand-held spiralizer, resulting in a twist on your summer slaw.

Just a few days ago, I shared a recipe for these sweet, orange-flavored macaroons. After the sugar high, it’s time to even things out with something ever so savory.

Those coconut orange cookies were delicious, and I felt like a second test from the book would be just as good. After marking several options, I settled on this recipe for a layered potato tart.

For nearly eight weeks, I’ve been working on a new project called 30 to Lifestyle. It’s a health, fitness and wellness site done in partnership with my friend Christa behind Coaching with Christa. There’s a challenge element set to launch on September 1, which will include a month of workouts designed by Christa and recipes written by yours truly. To make it all the more interesting, we have sponsor companies who have donated products that we’ll giveaway as prizes! One of the prizes includes cookbooks to inspire your at-home kitchen experiences. I received a cookbook from one of our sponsors, Quarto Publishing Group, and the first thing I did was try a couple of simple recipes. That’s where these cookies come into play. They’re an easy and quick treat that you can throw together in less than 10 minutes.
