Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

I am here to tell you I am unapologetically posting a pumpkin recipe on the first official day of autumn.  Does this make me a sterotype?  Probably, but I don’t care!! Ha!! Man, it feels good to say that.  I have been called “quirky” for most of my life.  I’m not sure its always in

Tomato Mango Black Bean and Corn Salad (vegan)

Don’t. Panic.  It’s September.  Which is kind of scary.  Because.. um, didn’t summer just get here?  Am I turning into a stereotypical adult who thinks time flies too fast?  I am going to be honest with you here.  I am totally fine with being a sterotype.  I think that when I do yoga, slather on

Vegan BLT Salad

Usually by this time of the summer I am over salads.  Because I tend to eat them a lot.  That is not the case this year.  I don’t know what it is about salads that have me so hooked, but I think I am going to go straight from salad obsession to soup obsession as

Grilled Potato and Heirloom Tomato Salad

Grilled Potato and Heirloom Tomato Salad

This summer has been wonderful.  August is here already (when did that happen!?) which is arguably the best month of the year for amazing, delicious produce (heirloom tomatoes!).  Though I think in a month I am most likely going to be arguing that September is the best month for produce (apples!).  It is not because

Vegan Classic Coleslaw (with Cashew Mayo)

I have a confession to make.  It seems wrong to admit that despite this being the absolute best time of the year for amazing, delicious, local, beautiful produce… I find myself not as motivated to spend a ton of time in the kitchen.  Gasp! Now that I have that off my chest (phew!), I have

Vegan Thai Stir Fry

I grew up watching the TGIF tv lineup on Friday night.  Yep, I am a child of the 90s!  I had a t shirt that changed colors in the sun and lots and lots of scrunchies. One of the shows I loved watching on TGIF was Boy Meets World.  I think it was hard not

I have smoothies for breakfast a lot.  Like, for the most part I have a smoothie every morning.  Always.  But I realized I haven’t been showing the love to oatmeal.  And oatmeal deserves some love! Last Saturday I was like “let’s do something crazy for breakfast! its the weekend!!”  In my head I was picturing

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

The long weekend is almost here.  I am so excited!! Here are the things I am looking forward to over the July 4th weekend: Lots of yoga.  I try to work out every morning, but I don’t usually have more then 30 minutes.  I am pretty in love with this yoga DVD, and I can’t

Vegan Taco Salad

You are not going to find me complaining about the heat.  Making jokes about my office being a 2-for-1 sauna and office? You bet.  It just means I can save the money and not splurge on the sauna desk I have been eyeballing.  (But seriously, though I kinda want that thing…) I think I am

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
