Gluten-Free Breakfast Tostadas

My friend Laura, who I had borrowed a few gluten-free brown tortillas from to test my recipe for Vegan Desert Nachos, let me try them out with my whole grain tortillas. The gluten-free tortillas were better than whole wheat, which I hadn’t expected. Since then, in an effort to reduce gluten, I have chosen gluten-free products […]

Stoplight Mango Green Smoothie

This smoothie was created because sometimes, you need to get out of the ordinary and make your breakfast fun, like a stoplight. Or a cookie. Or a muff-cake. See? Who said breakfast had to be boring? This smoothie was inspired by my current favorite fruit: MANGO. The base is frozen mango – I chop mine up […]

Healthy 5-Ingredient Granola Bars

John and I have an obsession with granola bars. We started with Trader Joe’s Apple Pie Bars. We then tried more basic versions made with rolled oatmeal. We began to be suspicious of these ingredients, namely the high fructose corn devil. Sometimes, you just want a snack with a lot of staying power. Since this […]

Butter-Less Alfredo with Peas

It’s important to blend my Alfredo recipe, as it can get lumpy if you are not careful. When my G&E Blender of over seven years broke down last week, and I had promised my new parents’ friends a pasta dinner that evening, we were forced to improvise. I was able to make some adjustments and even […]

Thai Sweet Potato Stacks With Peanut Sauce

You know it. Basil and peanut butter were a flavor combination that I loved. Since then, I have been adding the two ingredients to dishes as if there was no tomorrow. It seemed only natural that, as a lover of Thai cuisine – John & I eat it every week – I would incorporate it into the other […]

Frozen Blended Vegan white Russian

In my young, naive days of turning 21, I had no idea how to order a cocktail. The long lists of drink names were confusing to me. After a few well-meaning friends “initiated” me with the Jagerbomb, I almost gave up on alcohol. White Russians are creamy, sweet, and delicious but also secretly potent. After […]

Rainbow Chard Hummus wraps

Welcome to appearance number TWO of Rainbow Chard. First time, sweet. This time, savory. I can’t decide which one I like better. I think I’ll eat them both. Rainbow chard has such a beautiful color contrast that I could stare at it for hours. Look at the color contrasts and that hot pink vein. Get […]

Curry Roasted carrots with Peanut sauce

These are not your mother’s carrots. These carrots are not the same as your mom’s maple-glazed carrot sticks. My mom was able to get me to eat carrots as the only other whole food. She also made sure I ate canned pears and peas. She would always cook them with pot roasts, and they became […]
