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

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

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 Greek Tacos

I love tacos, and I super love playing with taco flavors.  They don’t always have to have Mexican flavor, sometimes it is fun to mix it up. And for the last few months I have been super obsessed with sun dried tomatoes.  I am still super obsessed with them, because the chew is super satisfying

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,

The end of 2013 flew by in kind of a blur.  I kind of can’t believe the holidays are already behind us!  Sometimes I wish there was a slow motion button for life. So while I work on wrapping my head around the whole 2014 thing (I am still writing 2012 sometimes, so it might

Sometimes, when I am watching 30 Rock, I realized how similar I am sometimes to Liz Lemon.  It’s generally a pretty frightening realization. But I recently had a revelation about doing my dishes. I realized that the key to keeping my kitchen clean isn’t about getting the dishes into the dishwasher, it’s in making sure

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 Taco Recipes (Taco Tuesday!!)

I would really love to shake the hand of whoever came up with the idea for Taco Tuesday.  Because, as I established yesterday, I kind of love the idea of having a certain plan for dinner on certain days.  And tacos are beautifully infinite in their delicious possibilities.  So let’s gawk at some tacos!

It’s officially fall, which officially means bring on the comfort food.  I think my neighbors must have been excited too because there were fireworks going off last night, that or they just really love fireworks. Growing up I remember Sunday night during fall and winter was traditionally spaghetti with tomato sauce night.  I love this

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
