Vegan chickpea cheezy stuffed mushrooms

(aka “use these mushrooms because they go bad quickly”) Hii 🙂 How’s your day going? It’s been a good one over here. I spent the morning with Livi becoming acquainted with our new medical facility here in SD. It’s one of the nicest I’ve seen; very clean, a friendly staff and lots of distraction activities.…

Grain-free apricot tartlets

The night before last was officially pizza night. We still hadn’t made our weekly Trader Joe’s and Costco runs, and when I stared in the fridge trying to mentally assemble components into a decent dinner option, the dessert radar kept going off.  So, I took the apricots that we’ve had for a few days (with…

Whenever I see the fam, I can expect the usual shenanigans. Food and laughter are the main components, with lots of stories, random games, spontaneously passing out on the couch from a food coma, and then repeating. I can also expect that my Uncle E will share some amazing cooking tips or a new recipe…

Zucchini pasta salad with creamy cashew sauce

Bringing back wacky out-of-the-box salads with this zucchini pasta salad. Even though, let’s be real, they’re around our house pretty much every day 😉 During the summer, I tend to get a little overzealous with the produce options and create some pretty interesting salad combos. Sometimes they’re home runs, and other times, they’re FGO (For…

Berry lemon chia jam

Morning! So glad you’re also excited about the Summer Shape Up. It will be here one week from today! 🙂 I started a new thing where if we’re out of something, I’ll try to make it from scratch. This doesn’t work for the obvious staples (like eggs. We go through 172 each week), but little…

Homemade Acai Bowls

Along with the handful of bases where we’ve been stationed, there’s also a corresponding food that will bring back fond memories of that assignment. Despite the glorious Southern food that we were surrounded with, our Valdosta food was Indian cuisine: soaked up with fresh naan and enjoyed with our close friends. Our Tucson food was…

Banana split smoothie

Hi! Happy Wednesday to ya 🙂 How’s the day going so far? This week has already been a lot of fun. I took Livi to her yoga class and we planted some herbs in the garden. I might eat my words later, but I feel like you really have to work to kill plants here.…

Veg intimidation: make kale taste delicious

Last week we talked about artichokes. Today, let’s talk one of the world’s favorite (kinda stinky) greens: KALE! Kale is a nutrient-packed powerhouse and yields some fantastic dietary benefits including iron, Vitamin K, calcium, and an antioxidant boost. It’s funny to think that something I wasn’t crazy about at first attempt is now one of…

Salted Baileys Chocolate Truffles

Here’s a fun dessert option for your St. Patrick’s Day festivities this week–salted Baileys chocolate truffles! In a nutshell, I took my favorite vegan cashew truffle recipe and de-raw-ified it by using Baileys instead of almond milk. It was a wise decision, indeed. I LOVE St. Patrick’s Day. It’s always been one of my favorite holidays,…
