Vegan Beef (Mushroom) Stroganoff

Vegan Beef (Mushroom) Stroganoff

I love garlic.  So much that earlier this week I attempted to make a recipe for 2 people with 8 cloves of garlic.  It was not successful. In this recipe I used 6 cloves of garlic.  As I was chopping them up, I thought about how I could call this something awesome like “Vampire Repellant”.

Vegan Mushroom Thyme Pasta

One upon a time, there was a fair maiden.  She loved all creatures, and very much loved her beautiful kingdom.  But there was one thing that this fair maiden could not stand.  She dreaded times she might encounter it. The mushroom! {insert gasp of horror here!} Oh yes, dear friends, I used to hate mushrooms.

Vegan Sticky Stir Fry

Vegan Sticky Stir Fry

I love vegetables.  I could write sonnets about them.  If I had any talent for sonnet writing.  Food in general just gets me excited.  I am one of those people who would gladly sit in a corner at a party and just talk to someone about food for hours.  Even if they are just telling

Vegan Okra Chili

Yesterday two things happened.  I wore long sleeves, and I put in the Gilmore Girls DVDs. I realize this probably means nothing you you.  To me, this means Fall is coming. I know I get enthusiastic about fall a little early.  Like, as soon as September hits I start suggesting we go apple picking, eat

Lemon Pepper Asparagus Quinoa

Lemon Pepper Asparagus Quinoa

Every year when asparagus season rolls around, I find myself doing the same thing.  Eating all the asparagus I can possibly fit into my stomach, and talking about how much I like to eat all of the asparagus.  And then I get so sick of asparagus that its ok that it won’t be another year

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms with Vegan Basil and Arugula Pesto

I read somewhere recently that 30 minutes of outside time every day can up your happiness.  Which to me translated to: Do everything outside!!! YAY!!!!!!! (Sometimes I think I was a cartoon character in another life) Grilling is a wonderful excuse to be outside.  Along with this little blog here (and some health coaching on

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

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

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 Falafel Salad

Vegan Falafel Salad

I am such a sucker for falafel.  It’s one of my favorite foods (if you are keeping count I have a lot of favorites, clearly I really love food).  Over the weekend we walked passed by a falafel place and then I couldn’t get falafel out of my brain.  Did I mention I love food?

Pasta with Green Beans and Chili Garlic Sauce

This winter has certainly been a snowy one.  My driveway is resembling an ice fortress straight off the set of Frozen.  Clearly the marketing department at Disney has been hard at work making it an icy, snowy winter to promote the movie.  I did see it twice, so I guess it’s working!!  (Oops, my Disney
