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.

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.

The Garden Tart

I feel like the majority of my recipes are quick, easy, and require minimal effort to throw together. But every once in a while I like to do a show stopper, a dish worthy of the Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner table. The garden tart is one of those. It is fiddly, time-consuming, and has many […]

Vegan Zucchini Banana Pancakes

I woke up starving, as usual, and craving pancakes, as usual. But when I started getting out ingredients, I realized I was out of eggs! Not good.
