Italian Zucchini Stacks

The weather here in the north of Colorado has been very interesting lately, to say the least. With thunderstorms nearly every evening and the very real threat of tornadoes right outside ones backdoor, days and nights have been quite exciting. Is it strange that I love the sound of distant thunder as I fall asleep, […]

Kale and Onion Quiche {Tofu, Whole Grain Spelt}

I am of the opinion that quiche is a breakfast food. That said, I often serve it for dinner. I love breakfast for dinner, in fact it would not be uncommon to see pancakes or a scramble with toast served for an evening meal in my home. My mom and I constantly disagree about quiche […]

Napa Cabbage Veggie Stir Fry

I am very excited to share this recipe with you. It looks like an unassuming, humble veggie stir fry though it is anything but. The spicy sweetness of the sauce is completely unexpected, and the whole dish has a savory full flavor that is almost addicting. The ingredients can be fairly flexible, depending on what […]

Tofu Tagine with Apricots, Almonds and Cashews

I’m still here!! Barely… It has been a very interesting week. My husband is a welder/construction worker, so he doesn’t get a whole lot of time at home. I had just gotten used to him working 6 days a week, 10 hours a day when suddenly he decided to take some vacation time and he […]

Chao Stuffed Italian Burgers with Zucchini Fries

One of the things I enjoy doing the most each week is sitting down and planning menus for the following week. I print out the list of fruits and veggies I am going to receive in my produce box, take inventory of what I need to use out of the refrigerator and pantry, grab a […]

Real Neat Blog Award

I am incredibly thrilled and humbled to be nominated for a Real Neat Blog Award by Suz, of Garden to Kitchen. When I started blogging a few months ago, I kept seeing these awards getting passed from blog to blog and I thought of how fun it would be if someday I got one too. […]

Kebab Halla with Rustic Zucchini Tian {Seitan}

I received zucchini and summer squash in my produce box once again, for what seems like the millionth time. I’m not complaining, really… I just am having to start cooking outside my comfort zone in order to keep things new and interesting. I have never cooked or even tasted Egyptian food before, but when I […]

Italian Herbed Tofu and Kale with Caramelized Leeks

Whenever I am planning a move (either across town or across several states), I always find myself putting organizing and packing off till the last minute. I know that I need to get it done sooner rather than later, but I am not very good at listening to my own advice. So now, with less […]

Vegan Crab Cakes with Mango Pineapple Sauce, Sweet Coconut Rice and Spicy Sesame Green Beans {gluten free, soy free}

Sometimes I feel like my life is a series of food experiences as I always associate specific memories and life events with what I ate at the time. I think it began when I was little, because my mom always made a really big deal of our birthdays. We got to eat whatever we wanted […]

Philly Cheese Steaks {Seitan}

Wow, time is flying by! I can’t believe that it is May already. Where did that come from? Things are getting a little crazy in my little world. Our move to Seattle is coming up now (we are shooting for the end of June), and there seems to be so many things going on that […]
