Vegan Mint, Pea, and Almond Pilaf

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.

Vegan Beef and Broccoli

No matter where you go, or who you talk to, it is likely you have something in common: super cold weather.  Like, some companies in Minnesota closed last week because it was dangerous how cold it was.  On a thermometer, that would be a reading of nutso cold. Between the cold and shorter sunny hours,

Butternut Squash Fried Rice

Butternut Squash Fried Rice

I have never really loved shopping.  But when we are at Disney World, it is one of my favorite things to do. On our recent trip I got all kinds of goodies for myself (including the Minnie Mouse ears that made my Halloween costume possible) but we also bought some little things for our nieces

Vegetarian Leek and Gruyere Risotto

Vegetarian Leek and Gruyere Risotto

I kind of disappeared from the internet world last week.  It was for the best reason… Hubby and I went to Disney World!! He had a conference for work down there, and I got to tag along (and frolic around in my favorite place ever!). I think I am likely going to be talking about

Vegan Fajita Bowls

Vegan Fajita Bowls

When I am feeling too lazy to cook dinner, my go to take out meal is fajita bowls from a nearby restaurant.  Technically I guess they are supposed to be fajitas since they give you tortillas and stuff, but I always just eat the veggies, have them sub the sour cream and cheese for extra

Today I am going to be constructively deconstructive. Because realistically, I am probably not going to roll my own sushi.  I mean, I think it sounds like a ton of fun, and I am sure I would get a lot of laughs at how hilariously bad I would be at it…I mean just yesterday I

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

Mushroom Stroganoff

Mushroom Stroganoff

There was a time when cooking wasn’t really my thing.  I was a pastry chef, and I didn’t care as much about cooking dinner.  It was a time when my fallback dinner was some kind of meat in the crockpot.  Not glamorous.  But I used to make a beef stroganoff that was pretty darn good,

Rice and Beans

Rice and Beans

Serves 4   This is really a pantry-raid special.  I know it happens to all of us that there are days we get home and there is legitimately nothing in the fridge to make.  This is a recipe created out of stuff I keep on hand, with a few fresh ingredients to yummy it up

Vegan California Roll Salad

Vegan California Roll Salad

Serves 3-4   If I might say so: holy crap, this salad is awesome!! It seriously tastes just like a sushi roll.  I admit that I have yet to try to roll my own sushi, as I am intimidated by the prospect.  Since I love sushi, and have been on a salad kick lately, I

Meatless Monday – Vegan Style! You may be familiar with Meatless Monday, but for those of you who aren’t, it is a campaign encouraging people around the world to skip meat one day a week.  Since I generally try to avoid meat anyway, I thought I would take it one step further to challenge myself
