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

Grilled Avocado and Asparagus Salad (vegan)

Grilled Avocado and Asparagus Salad (vegan)

This weekend we uncovered the grill and I did a happy dance (literally).  Then I lazied around outside reading, while hubby used our old school mower on the lawn (a workout with a pretty lawn bonus!), and I collected a brain full of things to be thankful for. It had been suggested to me for

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

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

Vegan Creamy Leek Pasta

My sense of humor hasn’t changed much as I got older.  Cheesy jokes get me every time.  It wasn’t until I was a full blown adult that I found out that the joke about Fozzie Bear’s jokes is that they are bad.  I always thought he was so hilarious.  I still find myself laughing inappropriately

Vegan Mango Cabbage Slaw

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

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

Vegan Tempeh Scramble

Vegan Tempeh Scramble

I love breakfast.  It’s a meal where I can eat chocolate things, or savory goodies, or throw some healthy things in a blender and have a balanced meal in seconds.  There is totally not another meal that is so flexible. But I think maybe my favorite thing about breakfast is that mornings tend to be

Vegan Fajita Bowls

Vegan Fajita Bowls

When I am feeling too lazy to cook dinner, my go to take out meal is fajita bowls from a nearby restaurant.  Technically I guess they are supposed to be fajitas since they give you tortillas and stuff, but I always just eat the veggies, have them sub the sour cream and cheese for extra

Grilled Corn and Mushroom Salad (Vegan)

Looks aren’t always everything. This might not be the prettiest salad, but it will have you swooning after one bite. And it’s easy.  To make I mean. We made this one night as a quick lazy night dinner, and I hadn’t planned on sharing it, but it was so darn tasty that I just couldn’t

Vegan Broccoli Salad

Vegan Broccoli Salad

I am “back” from my staycation, and boy was it awesome.  I think the fact that I read 2 whole books in a few days is a pretty good indication of how amazing and relaxing the time off was.  I needed it because it had been so long since I had been able to devour
