Easy Thai-Inspired Carrot Soup

September 5, 2014

It might as well almost be December because I found myself starting to look for a new winter coat the other day. I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt at the time. It might be best for me to slow down. I seem to keep forgetting that even though we’ve moved past Labor Day, it’s still […]

Vegan Sweet Pepper and Mushroom Soba Noodle Stir Fry

September 2, 2014
This simple vegan and gluten free Sweet Pepper and Mushroom Soba Noodle Stir Fry is fresh, delicious and you

Say hello to my new favorite 20-minute dinner – Vegan Sweet Pepper and Mushroom Soba Noodle Stir Fry. The alternate title was here’s-everything-in-my-fridge-that-needs-to-get-eaten-before-we-go-away-for-the-long-weekend-stir-fry. Just didn’t have the same ring as the actual title. A little too long, perhaps? Yea, I kinda thought so too. Last week was an awkward week in terms of cooking. After […]

How is it that summer always goes by so darn fast?! This summer, especially. This time of year always makes me feel like I’m getting pulled in opposite directions. Half of me is super excited for all things pumpkin & apple, cool fall mornings and cozy sweaters. The other half of me is hanging on […]

Remember last Friday when I teased you with an instagram photo of blueberry basil simple syrup in the works? Yea, I was totally prepping for this killer drink. Basil is completely flooding the farmers market and blueberries (like, the really good kind) have been sticking around longer than usual this year. Take advantage. Load up, […]

It’s been kinda quiet in these parts this week.  Sorry about that! I’ve been a little sidetracked with a project – otherwise known as, putting the FINAL edits on the Freekeh eCookbook!  Also writing the introduction (which I’ve been putting off for months) and coming up with a name.  Yea, so this thing is really happening.  And […]

A super belated thank you for your well wishes on last weekend’s triathlon!

Tropical Smoothie

Question….at any given time, how many different types of milk products do you guys have in the fridge? You know, like, dairy milk, half & half, almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk. I’m sure I’m forgetting a few, but you get my point. I’m just trying to gauge where I stand on the spectrum of […]

Honey Lime Chicken Skewers are a wonderfully simple weeknight meal and so incredibly delicious!| #weeknightdinner

After last weekend’s triathlon I suspected I’d feel like I’d want to reward myself with a giant ice cream cone once we got home from the race.  Except that’s not exactly how things played out.  I wanted to want ice cream.  Like, really wanted to want it.  Instead I had a super intense craving for […]

Tangy Buttermilk Ice Cream swirled with sweet and tart Rhubarb Compote is your perfect for summer treat! | #icecream #rhubarb

Back in April I made a simple rhubarb compote, and have been making it on an almost weekly basis ever since.  I suppose it’s safe to say I’m a bit obsessed.  It’s just that it’s so gosh darn delicious, and if the early days of summer were to have a taste, this is it.  This compote […]

I didn’t grow up with brothers, but from what I’ve heard, it seems like it’s crucial to be speedy in finding the good snacks before they do.  Am I right? I’m kind of going through something similar with popsicles lately.  They’re disappearing almost as fast as I make them.  The culprits…just me and L.  Although one […]
