Mango Coconut Vanilla Milkshake (vegan)

Here in the Northeast it has been a wonderful summer.  We have had some heat waves, some cooler streaks, and lots of sunshine. For the first time in as long as I can remember, I am spending most of my days in an office that does not have air conditioning.  I know just the idea

Cherry Berry Smoothie (Vegan)

Cherry Berry Smoothie (Vegan)

This weekend officially marked the start of summer.  I better get over to the farm to get a new tank of propane because my grill is looking ready to be BFFs again. The berries and cherries I am getting right now are like beautiful music to my taste buds.  And I am really loving just

Vegan Caprese Salad

Vegan Caprese Salad

I never properly remember the things people say that I think are so hilarious at the time.  But the other day when Hubby came home and saw how many lettuces I had jammed into every available space in the fridge his comment sent me into a fit of laughter.  It’s why I think I am

Chocolate Cherry Almond Salad

Chocolate Cherry Almond Salad

I suddenly remembered a few weeks ago that fresh cherries existed.  Upon remembering I proceeded to look up my produce purchase history to find when I get to stuff my face full of these perfect little fruits. I realized it was May, and it was a week later that I got my hands on some.

Lemon Dressing

Lemon Dressing

I have a lot of reasons to love the family I married into.  I got an amazing husband, best friends, role models, and lots of love in my life out of the deal.  Which is pretty unbeatable. I also got lemon dressing.  And while next to those other things, something as simple as lemon dressing

Coffee Banana Soft Serve (vegan)

Coffee Banana Soft Serve (vegan)

One of my favorite little tricks to healthy sweets is banana soft serve.  It turns out that if you put a frozen banana into the food processor, out comes banana soft serve.  No magic wand needed! (Though they never hurt, right?) Hubby sometimes catches me standing in the kitchen with my nose in the can

Vegan Carrot Cake Salad

Vegan Carrot Cake Salad

I think I can finally convince even non believers that salad for breakfast is where it’s at. I am seriously hooked on this salad.  I am on kind of a raisin kick right now (it took me a while to get over the inner child that cringed at raisin things, even though I do still

Green Orange Juice

Green Orange Juice

I have been getting the most beautiful citrus fruit lately.  And sometimes I love cutting it up and eating it like a salad (grapefruit segments with maple syrup and walnuts is pretty much the best thing that ever happened to grapefruit for breakfast).  And other times I am less motivated and I just want yummy

Vegan Mango Cabbage Slaw

This recipe is my jam right now.  I must be really looking forward to the weather warming up because raw salads (like this one) and slaws are currently my favorite foods. I am also really obsessed with the savory/sweet combo of adding fruit to savory dishes lately. I was so excited when I cut into

Avocado Mayo (Vegan Mayo!)

Avocado Mayo (Vegan Mayo!)

Avocados are, in my opinion, one of the most perfect foods ever.  And I have been making this mayo alternative with them for years, I am pretty obsessed with it. Actually, once I decided to actually write down and share the recipe, I did a side by side comparison of this to “regular” mayo.  It

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)

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
