Zucchini and Lemon Spaghetti Recipe

Recipe | Zucchini and Lemon Spaghetti from Food: Vegetarian Home Cooking

Before I started blogging, I didn’t spend much time thinking about vegetarianism. Having stopped eating meat at such a young age, it was simply a way of life. I never felt a longing to eat meat or looked at a restaurant menu and thought, “Oh, I really wish I had more options.” I didn’t talk…

Spinach, Caramelized Onion & Roasted Pepper Open-Faced Sandwiches from Vegetable Literacy

Recipe | Spinach, Caramelized Onion & Roasted Pepper Open-Faced Sandwiches from Vegetable Literacy

I can never, ever pass up the opportunity to make a recipe that involves caramelized onions. Are they a pain to make? Kind of. Do they take for-freaking-ever to cook down? Absolutely. But they are always worth it. When I was given a list of recipes from Deborah Madison’s Vegetable Literacy to chose from for…

Roasted Beets with Edamame & Arugula Recipe

Recipe | Roasted Beets with Edamame & Arugula + Meatless by Martha Stewart Living

I finally did it. I finally tried beets. For a food blogger, I think I’m a pretty picky eater. I tend to stick to foods that I know I like and until I started blogging, I rarely felt the need to branch out beyond that. At 32 years old, I’m pretty set in my ways….

Whole Wheat Black Pepper Fettuccine with Baby Artichokes

Whole Wheat Black Pepper Fettuccine with Baby Artichokes & Making Pasta with my KitchenAid Mixer

When it comes to cooking, we all have foods that we are comfortable with and that we return to again and again. And then there are those foods that we are not so comfortable with. Maybe we’ve made them once and that was all we needed to know that it wasn’t going to happen again….

Thai Basil Pesto Ingredients

Magimix Food Processor Review + Thai Basil Pesto Recipe

I used to think I loved my food processor. We purchased it a few years ago to replace a cheap unit that was so unusable that it sat gathering dust in our laundry room. That old food processor did such a terrible job that just about anything looked good in comparison. Yes, I loved my…

Farmers Market Haul + Photography With My Tamron Macro Lens

Sometimes simple is best. Fresh sweet corn, so flavorful that it doesn’t even need butter or salt. Blackberries that ripened under the hot July sun and stain your fingers when you eat them. When you’re cooking with fresh local produce, you don’t have to add much (or anything) to make it taste good. That’s why…

Peach Melba Greek Yogurt Shake

KitchenAid Hand Blender Review + Peach Melba Shake Recipe

If I had to make a list of the small appliances I use most in my kitchen, my hand blender would be at the very top. I love hand blenders so much that when our traditional blender broke, I didn’t even bother searching for a replacement–between the hand blender and our food processor, the regular…

Le Creuset Heritage Bean Pot Review + Stout Baked Beans Recipe

You know that saying, “They just don’t make ‘em like they used to?” I’m quite certain the person who coined it was talking about cookware. When my husband and I got married, we registered for a cookware set. After years of mismatched pots and pans, I was excited to get a matching set–a set that…

Field Roast Frankfurters Review + Drunken Franks Recipe

I know I’ve mentioned Field Roast a gazillion times on this blog. I know! But it’s a product I really believe in. Something so flavorful and delicious really doesn’t deserve a name like “meat substitute,” but if you haven’t heard of Field Roast, that’s essentially what it is–it’s a vegan line of grain meats that…

Crustless Sweet Potato Cardamom Pie

Baking With NuNaturals Stevia | Crustless Cardamom Sweet Potato Pie Recipe

I’ve found that I’m very sensitive to non-sugar sweeteners. If it’s not sugar, I can always tell. And usually I don’t like it. Because of this, I’ve never really gotten on the stevia train. When NuNaturals contacted me and asked if they could send me samples of their stevia, I decided to try baking with…

My Visit to the J.R. Watkins Factory

Watkins Naturals in Winona, Minnesota with four other bloggers (Micaela from Mindful Momma, Jodi from Mom’s Favorite Stuff, Jennifer from Savoring the Thyme, and Lori from Groovy Green Livin). I was super excited about this trip because J.R….

ModKat Litter Box Review

I love my cats, I really do. But one thing I hate about having cats is that so many things made for cats are just not my taste. At. All. I’m not really into cutesy things and the utilitarian litter boxes and scratching posts are okay, but they lack personality. So naturally, I’m loving the…

Indian-Inspired Grilled Pizza

Grilled Roasted Vegetable Pizza Recipe + Stonehouse 27 Review & Giveaway [Ended 8/31]

If you read my meal plans often, it’s no secret that I love using prepared Indian cooking sauces. I’m just a fan of jarred sauces, period. Although I would like to spend the time preparing an elaborate meal 7 days a week, it’s just not gonna happen. Prepared sauces are the perfect way to bridge…

Vegan Pepper Jack Potato Corn Cakes

Daiya Vegan Cheese Review + Pepper Jack Potato Corn Cakes Recipe

While there are many foods with good vegetarian and vegan equivalents (I’m looking at you, ice cream!), it’s difficult to find a good vegan cheese. For years, whenever I’d find a new one in the refrigerated section at Whole Foods or the local co-op, I’d excitedly put it into my grocery cart and inevitably, my…

Sweet Tomatoes Review + Crunchy Island Pineapple Tossed Salad Recipe

I’ve been a vegetarian since I was 12. I don’t like to make a big deal about it–after 18 years, it’s really second-nature to me. I don’t go to restaurants and wish I could order a burger or steak and I don’t miss eating meat. That said, I do wish that restaurants would offer more…
