Score!!! This recipe is so awesome. I have committed to bringing a few vegan side dishes and a vegan main dish to one of our Thanksgiving gatherings this year. I wanted to experiment with some recipes I've never made before. I love roasted Brussels sprouts and wanted to incorporate some fall flavors. So, I roasted [...]

Vegan Holiday Stuffing

By |November 19th, 2015|All Recipes, Large Groups, Vegan, Vegetarian|

Nearly every year since birth, my favorite dish at the Thanksgiving table is my uncle's stuffing. The flavors are so simple, yet robust and the smell of this dish alone comes along with memories of family. Every year I mean to get his stuffing recipe so I can make it myself and every year I [...]

Vegan Nacho Cheese Sauce

This vegan nacho cheese sauce is the perfect snack for a football party. It tastes (to me) just like cheese dip that you get from a jar, but WAY better! This recipe is similar to my vegan nacho cheese dip recipe, but this is a thinner sauce versus a spread. You can use this recipe [...]

Overnight Maple Bacon Steel Cut Oats

When you're rushed in the morning it can be hard to have a hot healthy breakfast option. My solution? Put some oats in the slow cooker before you go to bed and in the morning you'll have a steaming hot, filling breakfast ready for you and your loved ones. Pre-chop some toppings the night before [...]

Short Ribs in Red Wine Sauce (Slow Cooker Recipe)

By |November 17th, 2015|All Recipes, Slow Cooker|

Short ribs are always so delicious and I rarely eat them. Usually if I do it is at a restaurant. I decided to try cooking them myself and in the slow cooker. Lately I've been cooking a lot in a slow cooker. I own two so I can alternate them if one isn't clean, but [...]

My family LOVES Korean BBQ. I personally think it's delicious but I never really crave it. At a Korean restaurant I'll usually order some bibimbap. Mandu is fantastic and I really want to learn how to make my own. My dad, aunt and uncle are kalbi fiends. So much so that I try to make [...]

Slow Cooker Barbacoa

Yay for Chipotle! Chipotle is such a good option for a quick, fresh, on-the-go meal. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your perspective) the Chipotle near my house is TERRIBLE. Slow service, always out of everything, long lines, etc, etc. It's so bad that I've vowed to never step foot in there again, so if I [...]

Oven Baked Mozzarella Sticks

By |November 10th, 2015|All Recipes, Vegetarian|

My husband LOVES mozzarella sticks. If they're on the menu, he's thinking about ordering them. Sometimes he stays strong and sometimes he just wants his "sticks". This inspired me to try to make a healthier version of breaded cheese thrown into a deep fat fryer without sacrificing taste. While you're still eating hecka cheese with [...]
