Sweet Potato Black Bean Enchiladas

By |July 8th, 2016|All Recipes, Dietary Restrictions, Dinner, Large Group Dinner, Large Groups, Vegan|

I love to host people for meals at our house. I love to cook for people but I also love creating memories of the entire family getting together on the back deck and in the yard. Our dogs running around with the babies; the girls chatting while the guys throw the football around. It's magical [...]

5 Minute Taco Dip

By |July 7th, 2016|All Recipes, Appetizers, Party Food, Snacks, Vegetarian|

Taco dip! This recipe is the fastest recipe to make and is a crowd-pleaser every time. It is my go-to appetizer for a large crowd. I've never had anyone tell me they don't like this taco dip. All you need is 5 or 6 ingredients and 5 minutes! I serve this dip cold so no [...]

Crustless Pizza Snacks

Pizza! Raise your hand if your favorite food isn't pizza. That's what I thought. My husband and I run our own business and are in the process of moving. We are busy. The easy answer is order a pizza. One can only do that so often before the heavy guilt starts to set in. I [...]

Homemade Hibachi Chicken

Do you love teppanyaki style restaurants but hate sitting with a bunch of strangers? So I'm the weird one? Haha... Nothing satisfies a craving for me quite like hot fresh hibachi chicken with tons of veggies. It salty, rich, crunchy, flavorful...it's heaven, but to have it regularly can break the bank! I had a craving [...]

Breaded Baked Cod with Sauteed Broccolini

By |March 8th, 2016|All Recipes, Gluten Free|

I love to cook (obviously...I just get excited)! I especially like to keep some meals on hand that are not only delicious but contain lean protein and veggies for the majority of my food consumption. If the meal is light AND mouthwatering, that is a big bonus. I make a conscious effort to eat more [...]

Feels good to be posting again! I haven't posted for a few months because I've been traveling! I love to cook, I love my dogs, I love my husband and other human family, and I LOVE TO TRAVEL! Since my last post I've gone to Aruba and on a Western Caribbean cruise that docked out [...]

Vegan Mushroom Onion Gravy

I needed the perfect vegan gravy to top my Vegan Holiday Stuff and this recipe did the trick! This gravy is so rich and flavorful that no one will even know it contains no animal products unless they ask for the recipe (which they might!). If you have vegan or vegetarian guests at your holiday [...]

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

By |November 18th, 2015|All Recipes, Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian|

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 [...]
