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

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

I am here to tell you I am unapologetically posting a pumpkin recipe on the first official day of autumn.  Does this make me a sterotype?  Probably, but I don’t care!! Ha!! Man, it feels good to say that.  I have been called “quirky” for most of my life.  I’m not sure its always in

Vanilla Oatmeal with Blueberries and Figs

Vanilla Oatmeal with Blueberries and Figs

I have smoothies for breakfast a lot.  Like, for the most part I have a smoothie every morning.  Always.  But I realized I haven’t been showing the love to oatmeal.  And oatmeal deserves some love! Last Saturday I was like “let’s do something crazy for breakfast! its the weekend!!”  In my head I was picturing

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.

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

Vegan Carrot Cake Salad

Vegan Carrot Cake Salad

I think I can finally convince even non believers that salad for breakfast is where it’s at. I am seriously hooked on this salad.  I am on kind of a raisin kick right now (it took me a while to get over the inner child that cringed at raisin things, even though I do still

Strawberry Vegan Green Smoothie

Strawberry Vegan Green Smoothie

A while back the weirdest thing ever happened to me.  I started to love exercise.  I went from the wake-up-as-late-as-I-can-get-away-with (I was serious about getting every last minute of sleep) to getting up early to work out.  Which is seriously something I never ever thought I would do. (Ok, I am still serious about my sleep,

Vegan Braised Red Cabbage

Vegan Braised Red Cabbage

  Braised cabbage is my new favorite thing.  Now hear me out, because I know braised cabbage doesn’t always rank on people’s favorite food lists.  You can get wonderful, fresh cabbage right now, even in the northeast where fresh local produce is not as abundant.  Red cabbage is super chock full of healthy antioxidants, antioxidants

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.
