Soft kale with a creamy dressing, plus crunchy almonds, celery bites and savory scallions This one was very much inspired by a recent trip to the co-op.

Like lightning in a jar

Hi! Happy Monday! Hope you’re having a wonderful morning and enjoyed a relaxing weekend. Mine included a traveling day to get home to my favorite people.

Vegan chocolate oatmeal peanut butter cookies

Hiiiii 🙂 How’s your day going? Hope it’s been great 🙂 How ‘bout a cookie?  Confession: I’m a little bit of a cookie monster. I can take or leave ice cream or vanilla desserts (case in point: creme brûlée is always blah to me) but I LIVE for baked treats. The gooier, chocolaty-er, cake-ier, the…

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.

The best vegan sushi

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

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 things like almond butter and jam. Berry Lemon Chia Seed Jam One night, I was packing Livi’s lunch up for…

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…
