A Guide to Root Vegetables

A Guide to Root Vegetables

Truth: root vegetables can be intimidating. Most of them have thick, strange looking skin and long stems with leaves sprouting out of them. Let’s face it, some of them look like they’re from outer space. Some root vegetables are given the cold shoulder because they have the reputation of tasting earthy and even bitter. But…

Baked Pumpkins with Spinach, Mushrooms & Cheese Recipe

Recipe | Baked Pumpkins with Spinach, Mushrooms, and Cheese

Last year I came upon a recipe for pumpkin stuffed with bread, bacon, and cheese on Pinterest. I immediately made a mental note because I knew that, with a little bit of tweaking (and a lot less bacon), it would be a perfect vegetarian main dish for a holiday dinner. And with Christmas right around…

Sometimes I have an idea so brilliant that I need to stop whatever it is I’m doing and start working on that idea right away. This week, I had one of those ideas—I would Photoshop my cats into the Kardashian Christmas card. YES. And I did it, but it didn’t quite work out as I…

Broccoli Cheddar Brown Rice Casserole Recipe

Recipe | Broccoli Cheddar Brown Rice Casserole

I am serving up comfort food realness today. Comfort food because: hello, cheesy casserole! And realness because there are no cans of soup or blocks of faux cheese involved. It takes a little more time to make your own cheese sauce, but trust me, it’s completely worth it. This Broccoli Cheddar Brown Rice Casserole was…

Cauliflower and Chickpea Coconut Curry Recipe

Recipe | Cauliflower and Chickpea Coconut Curry

The nice thing about moving from the frigid Midwest to the South is that you can gloat to all your family and friends back home about the weather when fall starts. “Oh, it snowed there today? That’s nice. It’s 70 here.” (Yes, I am a terrible person.) But a week or two ago, when I…

Recipe | Brussels Sprout and Apple Tart with Walnut Pesto

Thanksgiving is next week. Did I just blow your mind? Fine, maybe not. Maybe you are a person who has things together, who plans everything in advance, and for that, I commend you. I used to be that person too. But then I turned into a person says “Have a good weekend!” on Tuesdays and…

Roasted butternut squash is one of the easiest fall side dishes you can make. The hardest part is cutting the squash, but Kare from Kitchen Treaty has a lovely little tutorial about cutting up butternut squash without losing a limb, so I’ll direct you over there for that.

Crispy Cauliflower Carrot Fritters with Smoky Garlic Aioli Recipe

Recipe | Crispy Cauliflower-Carrot Fritters with Smoky Garlic Aioli

For a few years, I worked as a periodicals clerk at a public library. It was a pretty sweet job because I essentially got paid to sit at a desk and read magazines. My actual job was to retrieve magazines for patrons who asked for them because we kept all of our magazines in a…

Roasted Vegetable Kebabs with Curried Chickpeas and Yogurt Sauce Recipe

Recipe | Roasted Vegetable Kebabs with Curried Chickpeas & Yogurt Sauce

Several weeks ago, I attempted to do an elimination diet. I say attempted because I basically lasted two weeks before I was like, “I’m over this, give me a sandwich.” I thought that maybe eliminating gluten would help with the annoying eczema on my hands because it had helped a friend of mine, and while…

50 Vegetarian Main Dishes for Thanksgiving

50 More Vegetarian Main Dishes for Thanksgiving

Last year I posted 40 vegetarian main dishes for Thanksgiving and people found it pretty useful. So I thought I’d do it again. Except this time, there are 50 recipes! Oh, and I threw in some bonus gravy recipes too because mashed potatoes should never be eaten without gravy. Now all of your vegetarian Thanksgiving…

Kale and Delicata Salad with Citrus-Maple Vinaigrette Recipe

Recipe | Kale and Delicata Squash Salad with Citrus-Maple Vinaigrette

Maybe I’m just noticing this because I’m a food blogger, but it seems like people are more obnoxious than ever about food. I’ve been a vegetarian for 20 years now and I think the last time I was pushy about it was when I was 15. I don’t try to convert people; I don’t rant…

Spaghetti Squash with Garlicky Kale Pesto and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Recipe | Spaghetti Squash with Garlicky Kale Pesto and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

It took me a long time to warm up to spaghetti squash. I think it’s because I had unfair expectations. People say they eat it because it’s just like eating spaghetti (!!!), but those people are liars because it’s really not like eating spaghetti. It’s like eating squash in the shape of spaghetti. Which is…

Recipe | Gnocchi with Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Lemon & Pine Nuts

Good instincts are important in life and they’re important in cooking too. There are times when I don’t trust my gut and I almost always regret it. Instincts are something you hone with life experience–they’re not some New Age-y hippie-dippie thing! And as we get older, our instincts get better and better. So you should…

Last weekend, Chris and I decided to get AppleTV. My plan was to get it, subscribe to Hulu, and then start watching old episodes of Rock of Love immediately. I was so excited that on the way to Best Buy, I sang the Rock of Love theme song, and since I only know approximately 3…

Brussels Sprout, Tempeh & Soba Noodle Skillet Recipe

Recipe | Brussels Sprout, Tempeh & Soba Noodle Skillet

Every fall I seem to latch onto a different seasonal ingredient to obsess over. Two years ago, it was sweet potatoes. Last year, it was winter squash. I think this fall, it’s going to be Brussels sprouts. I have so many ideas for them and I want to post them all. Brussels sprouts! Everyday! Every…

50 Vegetarian Slow Cooker Recipes

50 Vegetarian Slow Cooker Recipes

Something about fall always makes me want to seek out slow cooker recipes. Maybe it’s because crockpot recipes tend to be comfort foods–soups, stews, chilis, and casseroles. But when you’re a vegetarian, sometimes it can be hard to find meatless recipes for the slow cooker–why does virtually every slow cooker recipe have to have meat…

Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites Recipe

Recipe | Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites

Yes, I am jumping on the pumpkin spice bandwagon. I couldn’t resist doing a pumpkin recipe (it is fall after all) and if you do a sweet pumpkin recipe, you have to add pumpkin pie spice, right? This kind of reminds me of the time I accidentally wore the school colors on spirit day when…

For better or worse (often for worse), I am an idea person. Not really in an inspiring, visionary type of way. More in a “Hey, I have an idea! I’m going to glue Japanese candy wrappers to a piece of cardboard and frame it!” kind of way. I’m less Steve Jobs, more lady on Hoarders…
