Thai Curry Soup with Tofu

thai curry soup with tofu

For as much as I love to cook, there are still plenty of days when I’m too tired, don’t have any groceries, or have ran out of time. In these situations, my boyfriend and I order Thai food from a tiny, hole-in-the-wall restaurant around the corner. He loves the chicken curry, and while the flavor […]

Vegan Paleo Chocolates

Vegan Paleo Chocolates

I have never been into reality TV. It’s just not my cup of tea. However…my old roommate and I got helplessly addicted to The Bachelor, and soon another girlfriend starting coming over every Monday night to catch up on all the latest gossip, kisses, and of course, chocolate. Because there is really nothing better than […]

Baked Veggie Taquitos

Healthier Super Bowl Snacks

These baked veggie taquitos are an homage to my older brother Neal, and the dinners he ate as a kid. He would eat a plate of taquitos for dinner, (likely chicken, but I had no clue, being an extremely picky eater) and I have had a strange obsession with them ever since. I made and […]

Crunchy Quinoa Polenta Veggie Burgers

Healthier Super Bowl Snacks

As a lifelong vegetarian, I know the struggle with veggie burgers inside and out. Frozen store-bought patties are either cardboard, fried, or taste great but cause indigestion hours later. I have been making variations of these crunchy quinoa polenta veggie burgers for years now, and they are great for many reasons.

Southwestern Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Southwestern Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Making something out of nothing is one of my favorite things to do in the kitchen. And that is exactly what these southwestern stuffed sweet potatoes are. I had a sparse fridge and a growling stomach, so out of necessity, started throwing things together. My mom calls this dish “a meal in a peel,” which […]

Gluten-free Gingerbread Muffin Top Cookies

Have you ever done a cookie exchange? When I was in grade school, I remember my mom organizing groups of friends to come over with plates of their favorite holiday cookies; everyone then took two of each kind, leaving with a fun mix of delicious sweet treats. These gluten-free gingerbread muffin top cookies are worthy […]

Sesame Sriracha Brussels Sprouts

I love cooking for holidays; after all, food is what brings friends and family together to reminisce  and create new memories. While most of us associate Brussels sprouts with Turkey Day, I found that these sesame Sriracha Brussels sprouts fit in any day of the week. Which is a good thing, as I may have […]

Banana Breakfast Muffins

With the oven, stove, and overall kitchen in high demand this week, breakfast becomes somewhat of a pain. Not to mention that entertaining family can add a little extra stress. These banana breakfast muffins are you solution. Imagine baked oatmeal, but more nutritious, plus using muffin tins makes portioning easy. Let your overnight guests help […]

Vegan Bolognese

To be clear, I have been a vegetarian my entire life, so I’ve never actually eaten bolognese. I have seen it many times, served it, smelled it, reheated it, cleaned it up, but that’s it! So I am calling this sauce “vegan bolognese,” knowing full well that it is not a typical bolgnese. It is […]

Gluten-free Popovers

It is common knowledge that my mom is a force to be reckoned with in the kitchen. This morning over breakfast, my boyfriend asked me what she is known for. The two things that popped into my head were Applesauce Cake and soup. My mom is a soup maestro. Growing up, Mondays were soup nights. […]
