Vegan Fried Rice

Vegan Fried Rice

I normally don’t just eat a big ol’ bowl of rice for dinner but today I came across a picture of fried rice on the Weight Watchers website that looked pretty scrumptious.  Yeah yeah Weight Watchers.  I’m giving it another go…don’t worry this is just my third or fourth time.  It’s less of a diet … Continue reading

Cheater’s Ratatouille

Cheater’s Ratatouille

I feel weird calling this dish “Ratatouille” because the real French version is way more complex than what I threw together for dinner tonight.  I’ve actually had a lot of different kinds of ratatouille – some that are more like a saucy stew and some made from chunks of vegetables seasoned with Herbes de Provence. … Continue reading

Tomato, Spinach and White Bean Sauté

Tomato, Spinach and White Bean Sauté

When I first made this dish, I called it “Fancy Beans” but then upon further recollection I realized that didn’t really describe the dish at all.  It’s kind of like when you are trying to buy gum and come across that random Bubblicious flavor called “Radical Red” which doesn’t describe the actual flavor whatsoever.  Hence … Continue reading

Garlic Tofu Fries

Garlic Tofu Fries

Tofu is an everyday snack around these parts.  My girls like it any which way…but my 18 month old daughter Penelope loves it cold straight from the fridge cut up into little bite size pieces.  I fill her little snack bowl and she walks away happy only to return in a minute to get more. … Continue reading

Warm Kale and Coconut Salad

Warm Kale and Coconut Salad

Surprise surprise, I bought another cookbook.  As much as I love getting recipes and inspiration online, there is nothing quite like the feeling of getting a brand new cookbook.  I can sit and read a cookbook like a novel, much like my mom in this respect.  She has a marvelous collection and if I’m lucky … Continue reading

Spinach Chimichurri

Spinach Chimichurri

The other day, I finally put my food processor to good use making pesto and it got me thinking about herbs.  More like what other kinds of delicious green sauces can I make with herbs?  Chimichurri instantly came to mind.  Chimichurri is an Argentinian sauce typically made with parsley, garlic, vinegar, olive oil and oregano. … Continue reading

Green Rice

Green Rice

Kale.  I love it.  If I somehow got my kids to love it, I would be the happiest mom in the world.  So, I made a batch of Green Rice last night (inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow’s Fried Rice with Kale and Scallions.)  I wouldn’t exactly call it fried rice since I did change up her … Continue reading

Spicy Orange Peel Tofu

Spicy Orange Peel Tofu

The other day I came across the most scrumptious picture of Spicy Orange Peel Tofu on Pinterest.  Of course it just happened to be from one of my all-time favorite blogs, Poppytalk.  I normally shy away from recipes that have more than a handful of ingredients, but since I had almost everything already in my … Continue reading

Avocado Pesto

Avocado Pesto

I have been wanting to make Chef Chloe’s Avocado Pesto ever since we moved into this house with an almost unending supply of avocados (due to the avocado tree in our backyard.) Weeks will go by without any avocados and then bam!!! – right now I have three huge bowls of avocados in my kitchen. … Continue reading
