This probably should have been a Cinco de Mayo post – I guess I’m a little late to the party!! Neither here nor there, this tasty, filling, and perfectly-spiced Mexican dish is going to rock your world. Does “ethnic” cuisine seem like a daunting task that you could very easily screw up? (slowly raises hand…) That’s why I like to rely on others to do the work. In...

Some of the top complaints I hear from people who would, in theory, like to go vegan are: -the recipes are too difficult -vegan food doesn’t taste as good -fake meats are too expensive Well, my dears, this recipe is for you. Easy. Delicious. Cheap. This is the trifecta of vegan food.   The original recipe for Black Bean Burgers is a super easy, one-pot recipe. Everything in, everything...

CNN Travel wrote an article last year ranking, in their opinion, the best cuisines across the world. You will be thoroughly unsurprised to hear that Italian food came in at number one. And honestly, who can argue with that? I can’t. Spaghetti. Pizza. Roasted garlic tomato sauce. Gnocchi. Minestrone soup. Rosemary focaccia. I’ll let your imagination handle the rest because I’m getting...

When I was younger, I lived in France. And although I am a life-long vegetarian who has never so much as tasted meat, I was not always a vegan. Like any typical French resident, I ate a lot of cheese. (Joke’s on me though, because I later developed a dairy allergy.) So when I create dishes, I *LOVE* to come up with creamy sauces and spreads. I have to say, this original recipe Veggies Au Gratin is...

This holiday favorite went out in the Thanksgiving newsletter, but I couldn’t resist sharing the recipe with the world just in time for the rest of the holidays! It’s hearty, wholesome, and filled with the warm winter flavors we all love. Serve it up as the center of your meal. Prep: 1 hour ~ Cook: 1 hour ~ Serves: appx. 4 (recipe is easily doubled for larger gatherings – use 2 separate...

This next recipe, which we served as a side on Thanksgiving, is truly without season. It’s my go-to recipe for picnics, potlucks, or just when I know I’m going to have a lot of people in my house. It makes a large amount, which allows for multiple guests to serve themselves and relieves you of some kitchen time! It also keeps beautifully, so you can eat it for days on end. That might sound...

Sometimes we can’t plan ahead…but isn’t it nice when we can? You can either put this together in the morning before work, (it’ll take just 5 minutes), or even put it together at and just hit “start” in the morning.” Either way you’ll be coming home to a warm, freshly prepared meal! A note about TVP (which is used in this recipe): TVP are defatted soy...

…aka LATKES!! Gallette is French for “pancake.” My take on these fried delicacies was inspired by the Jewish holiday of Chanukah- but truth be told, we eat them all year round. Ingredients: 1 c carrots, chopped 2 sweet potatoes 3 small zucchini 1 medium onion 1 flax egg (2 T ground flax meal, 3 T warm water, mixed and set aside) 1 c all-purpose flour 1 T dried thyme 1 T lemon juice 1...

Who loves Chinese food? Okay, let’s be real – who doesn’t love Chinese food? *crickets…crickets…* There’s nothing as relaxing as a lazy Friday night, having take-out on the couch with friends/loved ones. But take-out? Yowzers. MSG much? Sodium? Hidden fish or beef broth? No thank you. This Sweet n’ Sour Tofu recipe will feed your Asian food craving and still...

One of the last foods I gave up when going vegan was eggs. Unlike meat, which I’ve never tasted in my life, and dairy, which made me physically ill, I loved eggs. Scrambled, omlettes, hard-boiled…you name it. So I was eager to come up with a dish that could give scrambled eggs a run for their money. Tofu Scramble is warm, spicy, and full of flavor. If...
