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”.

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”.

Edamame and Broccoli Salad (vegan)

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 love mason jars.  A lot.  One could say I collect them, but I think a more accurate description would be that I kind of hoard them.  I often can’t resist buying them if I see them at the store.  We have a lot of them, but we also use them all the time, so

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.

Zip zip zip.  That is the summary of how I like my dinners lately.  No time for nouns.  No time for adjectives.  Just a fast, healthy, wholesome dinner.  That’s ready in like 10 minutes.  It’s easier then you think. So here is one of my go to’s. I pull this recipe out whenever I don’t

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

Usually by this time of the summer I am over salads.  Because I tend to eat them a lot.  That is not the case this year.  I don’t know what it is about salads that have me so hooked, but I think I am going to go straight from salad obsession to soup obsession as

Grilled Potato and Heirloom Tomato Salad

This summer has been wonderful.  August is here already (when did that happen!?) which is arguably the best month of the year for amazing, delicious produce (heirloom tomatoes!).  Though I think in a month I am most likely going to be arguing that September is the best month for produce (apples!).  It is not because

The long weekend is almost here.  I am so excited!! Here are the things I am looking forward to over the July 4th weekend: Lots of yoga.  I try to work out every morning, but I don’t usually have more then 30 minutes.  I am pretty in love with this yoga DVD, and I can’t

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
