Pasta with Roasted Cauliflower, Lemon, Basil, and Capers (vegan)

Pasta with Roasted Cauliflower, Lemon, Basil, and Capers (vegan)

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  Apparently I also need a thousand words to title recipes.  Because seriously, I realize this one is cumbersome.  But for some reason I just kept adding words.  Perhaps we can call it “The Vegan Pasta formally know as Pasta with Roasted Cauliflower, Lemon, Basil, and Capers”.

I had a lovely moment of nostalgia the other day when something reminded me of the job I had in college at a pastry shop.  I started out as a fruit tarter (I think that might have seriously been my job title too, sometimes I wonder when my life when from pretty unusual to pretty

I used to be the kind of person who could have something sweet for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  There were often jokes made about how eating sweet things are what made me so sweet.  Ok, ok, sometimes I still make super terrible hilarious jokes like that.  Like sometimes I sit on an exercise ball at

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

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

I first became a vegetarian when I was about 13.  I grew up going to sleep away camp in New Hampshire every year, and one year I made this friend who everyone thought was the coolest girl ever.  She was a vegetarian, and so from then on I was too.  That pretty much lasted until

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

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

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

Vegan Mint, Pea, and Almond Pilaf

We’re puppy sitting this week, which is pretty much my favorite thing.  I think maybe I am going to steal him, and not give him back. Because he is hilarious, and makes me crack up constantly.  My sister, his actual owner, jokes about how he is a Muppet a lot, which he pretty much is.
