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

Vegan Roasted Asparagus and Tomato Pizza With Spelt Pizza Crust

This was a dinner totally inspired by our most recent trip to Disney.  We went to the beautiful California Grill restaurant, which overlooks the Magic Kingdom.  I love the place because of the views and the huge windows that flood the restaurant with light.  Not to mention I have had some of the best food

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

Quinoa with Peas and Parsley (vegan)

Hubby and I recently got back from a little get away.  To my happy place (Disney World).  I often feel overwhelmingly like I am the luckiest princess in all the land. I came back full of inspiration for new recipes to try out.  We ate some incredible food. In the past, we usually eat lots

Vegan Leafy Greens

Vegan Leafy Greens

One of those things that I feel like I hear about a lot is how good greens are for you.  Because… they are.  End of post? Just kidding, I just thought that since greens are so good for you, and can be so delicious with very little effort, I should share my favorite way to

Strawberry Mint Quinoa (vegan)

My love of oatmeal for breakfast started at a young age.  With one that had dinosaur eggs that melted into mini dinosaurs, and one with packets of fruit jam that I got to swirl in all by myself, what wasn’t to love? When I made this quinoa, I didn’t even realize I was pretty much

Vegan Tempeh Reuben

I really like having  special nights throughout the week.  In fact, I just read an article about how if you spread out the things you love doing throughout the week and not just on the weekends your quality of life improves.  That made so much sense to me, and I am all about doing the

Vegan Blueberry Coconut Smoothie

Vegan Blueberry Coconut Smoothie

I drink a lot of smoothies.  Generally one a day.  Occasionally two.  I found a brand of frozen fruit that I like, and since I get fresh produce delivered weekly, I don’t go to the food store regularly these days.  So the times I do get to the store I end up going to the

Greek Quinoa Salad (vegan)

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

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
