Vegan brussle sprout salad in a bowl

Vegan Brussels Sprouts Salad

Move over mixed greens and kale, there’s a new salad green in town, Brussels sprouts. Ok, I know some of you may be shaking your heads at the thought of Brussels sprouts in general, never mind raw Brussels, but I would encourage you to give this salad a try, because when Brussels sprouts are raw and thinly sliced they resemble a crunchy cabbage salad.

Easy Sautéed Cinnamon Apples

Happy fall back Sunday! I hope you all took advantage of that extra hour today. Maybe you got up earlier and were productive, or you took advantage of the extra hour and slept in. I took advantage of that extra hour and slept in, and I don’t have any guilt about it. I look forward to this day all year!

Easy Farro Salad with Tomatoes, Cucumber, Red Onion and Basil

I just had to post this farro salad because I’m literally making it ALL the time, (obsessed) and the kids and I are devouring it. It’s SO simple to make and pairs with just about anything, chicken, steak, fish, you name it. It’s even awesome on its own, and makes the perfect salad to bring to your next picnic or potluck.

Quick and easy guacamole

Quick and Easy Guacamole

I’ve recently taught a few small cooking classes/demos and come to the realization that a lot of my local readers and friends are on the lookout for simple, tasty, easy, no-fuss recipes to add to their repertoire. Recipes that I think are simple and not exactly blog post worthy, are really what most people want to make, and have time to make. I’ve always assumed that everyone had a go-to guacamole recipe, knew how to make brown rice, or de-stem kale, but I’ve come to realize that not everyone knows these things, and most of the time will not admit it.

Quinoa with tomatoes and cucumber and parsley and mint

Quinoa with Tomatoes, Cucumber, Parsley and Mint

This is the perfect healthy summer salad! It’s chock-full of fresh herbs, cucumbers and tomatoes, which are at their ripest in the summer months. I used heirloom tomatoes for this recipe, and let me tell you, this salad was BURSTING FULL OF FLAVOR! I might even say that it was a bit better the next day when all of the flavors had a chance to meld together!

Avocado Yogurt Crema

This crema is the perfect compliment for tacos, nachos, quesadillas, burritos and even tastes great alone paired with your favorite bag of chips. It also serves as a great dip for sweet potato fries!

the best corn muffins with jam

The Best Corn Muffins

I know it’s a bit bold to say that these are the best corn muffins, but in my humble opinion they are. I’ve sampled many corn muffins over the years, and these bad boys are basically what a corn muffin should taste like. They’re moist, a bit sweet and savory and have a nice texture and crunch from the cornmeal.

Avocado-Tahini Dip

This is the tale of the salad dressing that transformed into a dip.  It sounds like the start of a fairy tale don’t you think?   Except turning from a salad dressing into a dip doesn’t sound like a great transformation, (kind of like a prince turning into a frog) but it is, so it’s a story with a happy ending.
