Easy Baba Ganoush

By |April 5th, 2017|All Recipes, Dietary Restrictions, Gluten Free, Snacks, Vegan, Vegetarian|

So...I love baba ganoush. It's easily in my top 5 of favorite foods. I will order it any day, any time that I see it on a menu. I will drive miles to get it. There is a restaurant local to me that has baba ganoush. It is so delicious, but it costs me SEVEN [...]

Best Breakfast Smoothie

By |January 24th, 2017|All Recipes, Breakfast, Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian|

Smoothies are so good for breakfast. If you're in a hurry all the time, like me, something as simple as a smoothie can keep you from going without breakfast on days where you hit snooze one (or two) too many times. This particular smoothie was inspired by ingredients that I had in my home and [...]

Pumpkin Soup

By |September 27th, 2016|All Recipes, Dietary Restrictions, Dinner, Gluten Free, Lunch, Slow Cooker, Vegan, Vegetarian|

Pumpkins, pumpkins, everywhere! I'm not the typical pumpkin fan. I'm not a huge fan of pumpkin pie or pumpkin spice lattes (gasp), but I do like my pumpkin savory. This Pumpkin Soup recipe is adapted from a recipe I found online. It's hearty, smooth, and creamy. It really hits the spot on a chilly fall [...]

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 [...]

Vegan Mushroom Onion Gravy

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

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 [...]

Lentil Chickpea Salad

By |November 6th, 2015|All Recipes, Gluten Free, Party Food, Vegan, Vegetarian|

I have a confession...I love Costco. Who doesn't? What's not to love? When I see a great deal, I can't turn it down, hence the reason there is a 10 pound bag of lentils in my pantry. It went unopened for about 2 weeks and then I panicked. What am I going to do with [...]
