Greek Stewed Cauliflower

Greek Stewed Cauliflower

Greek food is really growing on me.  Not that I haven’t always liked it, but I am starting to really love it.  Kalamata olives particularly are one of my new favorite things.  They add such an awesome savory salty bite to anything. Hubby has always been big on Greek food.  He has wanted to make

Vegan Samosa Casserole

Vegan Samosa Casserole

I didn’t explore different kinds of food until I was in college.  Before that it was Italian food and American classics all the way.  But then I discovered sushi (<3), and Indian cuisine. In college I lived with lots of dirty boys.  I had my own bedroom, of course, but my 5 roommates were dirty,

White Bean Chili (Vegan & Gluten Free)

White Bean Chili (Vegan & Gluten Free)

This chili is insane. This is my vegan version of a chicken chili.   It was so easy to make, and it came out sooo much better than I expected!! I think it might be a faux pas to talk about how much you liked your own recipe.  I am clearly very guilty of this. But

Warm Lentil and Spinach Salad

Warm Lentil and Spinach Salad

I officially hate squats. Occasionally, Hubby acts as my personal trainer, which is usually fantastic because he makes me push myself.  But the other day he had me doing squats.  I guess I haven’t done squats in a while.  Because first my legs turned to jelly, and then for several days I could barely walk.

Quinoa with Roasted Brussels and Pomegranate Dressing

Quinoa with Roasted Brussels and Pomegranate Dressing

Brussels sprouts are one of my favorite foods. Does that make me weird? I can’t help it, when they are roasted up all brown and crispy, I stuff my face and go to my happy place.
Baklava Oatmeal

Baklava Oatmeal

One of my favorite desserts that we made in pastry school was baklava.  Which super surprised me because I am a complete chocoholic.  So baklava being one of my favorites is kind of a big deal.  I even remember it was one of the very few things that we were allowed to take home, and

Gluten Free Diets

Gluten Free Diets

Gluten Free is a term I run into a lot these days.  It seems to be an ever growing genre that is sometimes cloaked in mystery.  More and more people are ditching gluten.  I didn’t know it until I started chatting with people about food and recipes that there so many people out there avoiding

Gluten Free Brownie Cookies

Gluten Free Brownie Cookies

I have a thing for brownies.  And, strangely, I really only like the box variety.  I like the texture very much, and have not been able to replicate sans crazy ingredients.  But these cookies fill my heart with joy.  Are they the kind of thing you should munch on all day every day?  Probably not.

Italian Corn, Broccoli, Tomato and Basil Salad

Italian Corn, Broccoli, Tomato and Basil Salad

Serves 2-3 I love raw broccoli.  Perhaps it’s a strange thing to confess love for, but its just so darn good!! It is the main staple of this salad, and it makes for a really good texture since everything else is a bit softer.  When I chop broccoli for salads like this, I cut the

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes (gluten free)

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes (gluten free)

Umm, yeah… these are a game changer.  We made really yummy cinnamon rolls in pastry school, but they are seriously involved.  And obviously, while delectable, they were not by any means healthy.  Now it still might be a stretch to call these health food (especially when you drown them in maple as I do), but

Raw Vegan Egg Salad

Raw Vegan Egg Salad

Serves 2 Originally I had planned on making a rawsotto.  I looooove cauliflower rice (as seen in this recipe) so I thought doing a raw risotto would be an awesome spin.  I made it, photographed it, then ate it and decided it looked and tasted much more like egg salad.  It is actually an awesome

Easy Watermelon Sorbet (no ice cream maker required)

Easy Watermelon Sorbet (no ice cream maker required)

Serves 2-3 Looking for something cold, sweet, healthy and speedy?  Look no further!  I have an ice cream maker, but have to admit it’s a bit of a pain to use.  I am in the throw-everything-in-the dishwasher-even-if-I-am-not-supposed-to camp, but you really can’t throw the bowl of most ice cream makers into the dishwasher, like for
