Vegan Okra Chili

Vegan Okra Chili

Yesterday two things happened.  I wore long sleeves, and I put in the Gilmore Girls DVDs. I realize this probably means nothing you you.  To me, this means Fall is coming. I know I get enthusiastic about fall a little early.  Like, as soon as September hits I start suggesting we go apple picking, eat

Deconstructed Vegetarian Pot Sticker Bowls

May I nerd out for a minute? I love the Harry Potter books.  In my opinion they are some the best books ever written.  I caught up on the series right before the last book came out.  So naturally, when the book came out, I not only had to go buy it immediately upon release,

I had such a wonderful long weekend, I hope you did too!!  We went to my Aunt’s for a BBQ on Saturday, and the weather was beautiful.  It was an all around wonderful day.  She had everyone bring something (which I just love!) and I took the opportunity to hit the farm for inspiration.  I

Lemon Pepper Asparagus Quinoa

Lemon Pepper Asparagus Quinoa

Every year when asparagus season rolls around, I find myself doing the same thing.  Eating all the asparagus I can possibly fit into my stomach, and talking about how much I like to eat all of the asparagus.  And then I get so sick of asparagus that its ok that it won’t be another year

Grilled Avocado and Asparagus Salad (vegan)

This weekend we uncovered the grill and I did a happy dance (literally).  Then I lazied around outside reading, while hubby used our old school mower on the lawn (a workout with a pretty lawn bonus!), and I collected a brain full of things to be thankful for. It had been suggested to me for

Quinoa with Peas and Parsley (vegan)

Hubby and I recently got back from a little get away.  To my happy place (Disney World).  I often feel overwhelmingly like I am the luckiest princess in all the land. I came back full of inspiration for new recipes to try out.  We ate some incredible food. In the past, we usually eat lots

Greek Quinoa Salad (vegan)

Greek Quinoa Salad (vegan)

I don’t really know if avocados are Greek, but since I can’t live without them they end up in a lot of things I make.  If the rumors about ‘you are what you eat’ are true, then I am going to turn into a nutty avocado.  And things are going to get weird. Hubby just

Vegan Creamy Leek Pasta

My sense of humor hasn’t changed much as I got older.  Cheesy jokes get me every time.  It wasn’t until I was a full blown adult that I found out that the joke about Fozzie Bear’s jokes is that they are bad.  I always thought he was so hilarious.  I still find myself laughing inappropriately

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

Pasta with Green Beans and Chili Garlic Sauce

This winter has certainly been a snowy one.  My driveway is resembling an ice fortress straight off the set of Frozen.  Clearly the marketing department at Disney has been hard at work making it an icy, snowy winter to promote the movie.  I did see it twice, so I guess it’s working!!  (Oops, my Disney

Veggie Meatballs (Grain-Free!)

Veggie Meatballs (Grain-Free!)

Spaghetti and meatballs on Sunday night reminds me of my childhood.  I think Sunday was always a day my mom made them, while my sister and I built forts out of blankets and pillows and the rocking chair.  We also had a computer box that will age me to say was so big we could

Vegan Creamy Mushroom Soup

Vegan Creamy Mushroom Soup

I am not always super upbeat and positive, but I really try to see the positive, and to be positive.  Because there really is a rainbow from every rain and all that stuff Sesame Street always tried to teach you. So while winter is cold, and can start feeling long, I am taking time to
