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

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

I love breakfast.  It’s a meal where I can eat chocolate things, or savory goodies, or throw some healthy things in a blender and have a balanced meal in seconds.  There is totally not another meal that is so flexible. But I think maybe my favorite thing about breakfast is that mornings tend to be

No matter where you go, or who you talk to, it is likely you have something in common: super cold weather.  Like, some companies in Minnesota closed last week because it was dangerous how cold it was.  On a thermometer, that would be a reading of nutso cold. Between the cold and shorter sunny hours,

Sherried Tomato Basil Soup (Vegan)

Oh hello!! It feels like it’s been a while since we chatted.  I didn’t prattle on as much as usual during my Thanksgiving series over the last couple of weeks.  So I am pretty excited to begin spilling by guts again.  I know that’s why you come visit me here, not for the recipes.  Right?

Thanksgiving Leftover Pasta

Thanksgiving Leftover Pasta

A lot of people make a sandwich out of their thanksgiving leftovers.  I make a pasta.  I blame it on my Italian roots, which make me obsessed with anything involving pasta.  This one uses the gravy and cranberry as the sauce, and since you don’t have to fit it between bread, almost anything goes!! This

Oktoberfest Quinoa

In my quest to make the most of the amazing fall season, I went to an Oktoberfest this past weekend.  It was clear that for many the main focus was to celebrate the season by drinking the largest possible volume of beer.  Now, I don’t drink much, but I actually did have a beer at

BBQ Cheddar Brussels Sprouts Pizza

For me, every season has one item that I am so excited to eat, that I eat so much of it so often that I end up getting sick of it by the time the season is over.  In spring it’s asparagus.  And right now, it’s brussels sprouts. Now I don’t know if there are

Crispy Tempeh with Tahini Sauce

I just got back from the best vacation ever. You may have noticed I kind of disappeared this week, I took a trip down to the beach and it was incredible.  There is nothing quite like time away and no work to recharge your batteries. I buried my nephew in the sand a few times

I was on a roll for a little while where I would buy a bag of grapes, then forgot I bought them, and then buy another one.  This happened for several weeks.  I kept pulling the grapes off the vine and throwing the older batch in the freezer.  At this point I think we have

Quinoa Patties With Peach Salsa

Sometimes when I work on the blog, I sit up in my office and listen to Disney music and open more tabs then my browser should probably let me open, and spend entirely too much time on random tangents. I think the internet needs to stop being so interesting so I can get some stuff

Vegan Korean Tacos

I think most couples spend time talking about normal things.  I have such a fantastic grip on what these things might be that I can’t even think of an example.  Hubby and I talk about food a lot.  Mostly it’s my fault.  I get overly excited by the fact that there are fresh peaches and
