Beet Salad with Cocoa Balsamic Vinaigrette

Beet Salad with Cocoa Balsamic Vinaigrette

It seems to me like you can get good fresh beets almost year-round.  I think they can be planted and grow in a range of conditions, and store really well, so I have been finding good local ones all the time. For me that means I have had a real Ted and Robin like relationship

Vegan Mint, Pea, and Almond Pilaf

Vegan Mint, Pea, and Almond Pilaf

We’re puppy sitting this week, which is pretty much my favorite thing.  I think maybe I am going to steal him, and not give him back. Because he is hilarious, and makes me crack up constantly.  My sister, his actual owner, jokes about how he is a Muppet a lot, which he pretty much is.

Vegan Peanut Sriracha Coleslaw

Vegan Peanut Sriracha Coleslaw

This slaw and I are having a moment.  Creamy, crunchy, spicy, with a little tart.. I’m also having a moment with this combo. I first made this a few weeks back during a time when the cabbage in my fridge was magical and everlasting.  It was kind of out of necessity because I somehow always

Vegan Falafel Salad

Vegan Falafel Salad

I am such a sucker for falafel.  It’s one of my favorite foods (if you are keeping count I have a lot of favorites, clearly I really love food).  Over the weekend we walked passed by a falafel place and then I couldn’t get falafel out of my brain.  Did I mention I love food?

Vegan Asian Soup

Vegan Asian Soup

I suddenly found myself staring down a refrigerator that was so full of produce that I could barely shut it on Saturday morning.  I chose to ignore that and went about my normal routine: a smoothie, and the newest episode of Jamie’s 15 minute meals.  If you have been around the blog for a while

Date Night Kale Salad (vegan)

Date Night Kale Salad (vegan)

With Valentine’s Day coming up this week, I just had to make some kind of dish with dates.  I love puns too much to pass up on this opportunity. A couple of weeks ago I took a work trip to Nashville, where I had a kale salad that I have been completely obsessed with ever

Raw Fennel Salad with Grapefruit (vegan)

Raw Fennel Salad with Grapefruit (vegan)

I am loving playing with the balancing flavor and texture in food recently.  I listen to this wonderful podcast, and they were discussing how food science develops food that is addictive and hits all the flavors and sensations that we crave.  The thing that I really love about the podcast is that they weren’t talking

Vegan Thai Carrot Salad

Vegan Thai Carrot Salad

The end of 2013 and last month have been kind of crazy for me.  My job got extra busy and demanding, and I feel like I am only now starting to see some breathing time up ahead.  In all the craziness I decided that I was going to view each month as a new start.

Vegan Greek Tacos

Vegan Greek Tacos

I love tacos, and I super love playing with taco flavors.  They don’t always have to have Mexican flavor, sometimes it is fun to mix it up. And for the last few months I have been super obsessed with sun dried tomatoes.  I am still super obsessed with them, because the chew is super satisfying

Apple Superfood Oatmeal

Apple Superfood Oatmeal

You know how when you eat something super healthy for breakfast, you feel empowered for the rest of the morning?  When I load up on healthy foods, I feel infused with energy and super powers. It might all be in my head, but even so it is an awesome way to start any day.  It

Gluten Free Crepes

Gluten Free Crepes

Have you ever figured out a life hack that made you feel like an evil genius?  And then you said it out loud and you realized it’s actually maybe not as cool as you thought it was? That happened to me twice this week.  First, I started using my mouse pad (the rubber side) as

BBQ Corn and Slaw

BBQ Corn and Slaw

When we were at the beach for our vacation recently, we frequented this awesome homemade ice cream shop.  And I tried a flavor that I wouldn’t normally get: Salted Caramel Pretzel (hubby was shocked that I wasn’t getting something that’s name implied that the chocolatey-ness of the ice cream would kill me).  Of course the
