Spice Rubbed Roasted Pork Loin

Spice Rubbed Roasted Pork Loin (GF, DF) | A Dash of Megnut

  If you’ve been around this blog long enough, you know Sunday is a big cooking day in my apartment. We make 90% of our breakfasts, lunches and dinners for the week. However, dinner tends to be similar to our lunches, which can sometimes get boring by the end of the week. It’s because dinner has always been a bit harder for me to come up with ideas for recipes. Breakfast I’m good. Give me […]


Blackberry Scones

Blackberry Scones - gluten-free, vegan, sugar-free | A Dash of Megnut

I haven’t made scones for a few years, about 5 years to be exact. But all it took was a conversation with my friend Chris from my study abroad program the other day, and I had the urge to make scones once again. You see, it was the Summer of 2010 and I was studying abroad in Copenhagen. The kitchen to our dorm was locked for the entire summer for some reason or another. Actually the reason […]


Roasted Chicken Thighs

Roasted Chicken Thighs

  Everyone has a go-to meal right? You know, that meal you make whenever you want something that you know will turn out great every single time. That’s the meal I’m talking about! Well, roasted chicken thighs are my go-to meal. I’ve been making roasted chicken thighs almost once a week for the past few years, in fact. I make this meal whenever I have friends over for dinner, book club meetings, nice Sunday night […]

Let me set the stage for you.  It’s a Sunday morning, and you’ve accidentally hit the snooze button on your alarm a few too many times. You stumble out of bed and slowly gather your bearings. That’s when it hits you. It’s not just any Sunday morning, it’s Mother’s Day. And you were supposed to make a dessert for today’s brunch. To make matters worse, you only have a few hours until brunch and you […]


Cucumber Tomato Avocado Salad

Cucumber Tomato Avocado Salad | A Dash of Megnut

Ah, my love affair with avocados continues. Sigh. Avocado haters gonna hate! If you don’t like avocados, you probably aren’t going to like what I’m posting from now until Fall. So you might want to come back then.. Just kidding! Stay! There will be plenty of recipes for all!  But seriously, I have never met anyone who doesn’t like avocado. Have you? Do those people exist out there? Actually, I take that back. One of my […]


Bacon and Roasted Bell Pepper Guacamole

Bacon and Roasted Bell Pepper Guacamole | A Dash of Megnut

  If you didn’t already know about my obsession with both bacon and avocados, then I’m afraid you’ve been living under a rock. I could probably make a whole section of my blog titled “Things Made With Bacon and Avocados.” So imagine my delight when I come up with recipes that contain both bacon and avocados! When I took my first bite of this guacamole, I’m pretty sure I heard the Hallelujah Chorus. It was that good! […]
