Vegan Spring Quinoa

Vegan Spring Quinoa

It’s official.  Even though I am not sure the weather got the memo yet, it’s Spring!!  And it’s the most popular topic of conversation for every person in North America.  The idea of wearing short sleeves has never been more exciting.  (Like, seriously, I can not wait) And I am so excited that I had

Vegan Irish Skillet

I am convinced cabbage is some kind of miracle food that somehow regenerates when I am not looking.  I feel like I haven’t bought cabbage in weeks, but somehow I still always have a half of a cabbage in my fridge. I really can’t complain since it is so healthy, and also keeps so well.  And

Gluten Free Pizza (English Muffin Style)

Gluten Free Pizza (English Muffin Style)

Some weeks my favorite thing to do is come home from work and tinker in the kitchen.  There are times that I find it relaxing and comforting and it is kind of my way to unwind. Then I also have times when the most comforting thing to me is being able to make a healthy

Lucky New Year Meal: Vegan Skillet

Lucky New Year Meal: Vegan Skillet

It was news to me that there are certain foods people eat on New Year’s Day for luck.  But any excuse to eat food is one I will take, because I love the inspiration to use certain ingredients, and I just love food. The first one I ever learned of was black eyed peas.  So

Vegan Quinoa Chestnut Stuffing

Vegan Quinoa Chestnut Stuffing

Somewhere along the lines this holiday season I got really obsessed with stuffing. It totally tastes like the holidays, and I can not get enough of it. So I literally woke up yesterday morning thinking about stuffing.  Totally normal right? But I couldn’t wait to cook up a big batch of chestnut stuffing.  It was

Acorn Squash and Caramelized Onion Pizza (vegan)

Why are caramelized onions so good on pizza!?  It’s crazy how good the combo is. I am revving up for Thanksgiving here behind the scenes, putting together a 2013 menu that is maybe the easiest recipes I have ever done for a holiday.  I am super excited to share it. Since that will be dominating

Autumn Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie

Autumn Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie

I think I am a closet anglophile.  Though perhaps I don’t keep it as hidden as I think I do. If something is British, there is a pretty good chance I am going to love it.  Like, Jamie Oliver is my hero, Harry Potter is one of my all time favorite books, Doctor Who is

Butternut Squash Fried Rice

Butternut Squash Fried Rice

I have never really loved shopping.  But when we are at Disney World, it is one of my favorite things to do. On our recent trip I got all kinds of goodies for myself (including the Minnie Mouse ears that made my Halloween costume possible) but we also bought some little things for our nieces

Vegetarian Leek and Gruyere Risotto

Vegetarian Leek and Gruyere Risotto

I kind of disappeared from the internet world last week.  It was for the best reason… Hubby and I went to Disney World!! He had a conference for work down there, and I got to tag along (and frolic around in my favorite place ever!). I think I am likely going to be talking about

Vegan Sloppy Joes

  There are a lot of things I love about blogging. I have met so many incredible people, which is an amazing perk I didn’t expect when I started. And I’m not going to lie; being able to ramble on about food and/or books is pretty awesome. But one thing that I really love is

Vegan Mexican Corn Casserole

Vegan Mexican Corn Casserole

I take a lot of pride in being able to do house things for myself.  When friends come over and I give them the tour, it consists of me telling them all the things I did.  “See this tile in here?  I cut and laid it down, and grouted it!  See this wall?  I sheet

Roasted Acorn Squash Quinoa

Roasted Acorn Squash Quinoa

So, it was totally 90 degrees here the day I posted a recipe for roasted Acorn Squash.  It’s kind of what I love about September, you can get hot days with cool nights and I can have watermelon in the morning and acorn squash for dinner.  (My version of having my cake and eating it
