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…

Recipe | Freekeh, Zucchini & Pistachio Salad

Have I mentioned before that Chris works from home too? Our offices are across from each other and I bother him constantly. I’m pretty much the work-at-home equivalent of that obnoxious person on the other side of your cubicle who will not shut up. As I was getting ready to write this post, I asked…

Recipe | Cucumber Chickpea Salad with Lemony Tahini Dressing

We got a new washer and dryer last week. Yes, dreams do come true! I’ve been watching for sales for a few months now and after finding the Samsung set we wanted for 1/3 off their regular price, we were finally able to bid adieu to our craptastic Whirlpool Cabrio machines. Our washer was like…

Spring Berry Salad with Lemon Verbena Vinaigrette

Recipe | Spring Berry Salad with Lemon Verbena Vinaigrette

We got back from Georgia on Monday night and I’m now ready for my next vacation. I think after you travel, you’re supposed to feel well-rested and satisfied, but traveling only makes me want to travel more. I spent most of the car ride home Googling hotels in Hawaii and the cost of airfare to…

Last weekend I went to the mall in attempt to find some jeans that are not skinny jeans and I realized that OH MY GOSH it’s pretty much summer. (Side note: can they please start making jeans that are not skinny jeans again? Because some of us have chunky calves. Thanks.) The air was thick…

Recipe | Butternut Squash, Lentil & Kale Salad with Tahini Dressing

On Friday, the weather was beautiful and the sun was shining and I felt excited and hopeful that spring was almost here. I even tweeted this: I know it's mid-February, but it looks like spring outside. Hooray for sun! — Oh My Veggies (@ohmyveggies) February 15, 2013 …and then about 20 minutes later, I got…

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….

Grilled Veggie Salad with Parmesan Polenta Recipe

Recipe | Grilled Veggie Salad with Basil Parmesan Polenta

I’m in the midst of installing a site redesign today. Please overlook any kinks or technical issues! They’ll be ironed out soon. On Tuesday I mentioned how I’m going into freak-out mode over the fact that summer is almost over. More specifically, I’m freaking out because I feel like I haven’t fully taken advantage of…

Recipe | Mango Black Bean Salad (and How to Cut a Mango)

This is a post about how to cut things and how not to cut things. Oh, and it’s also about Mango Black Bean Salad. But let’s talk about how to cut things first. Mangoes, in case you didn’t know, are really fun to cut. (This differentiates them from every other fruit, because other fruits are…

Spicy Cantaloupe Cucumber Salad

Recipe | Spicy Cantaloupe Cucumber Salad

I wasn’t going to post this recipe, but since it’s the end of the summer, it’s kind of our last opportunity to get locally grown cantaloupe and cucumbers. So why not stretch out summer a little bit longer and make fruit salad? I wasn’t sure how this recipe would turn out, to be honest. It…

Mediterranean Kidney Bean Salad with Lemon

Recipe | Mediterranean Kidney Bean Salad

I am trying to lose weight again. It’s not so much about the weight itself, but how I feel. I just feel icky. I eat well 90% of the time, but it’s that other 10% (or the “I’ve had a bad day, better make some brownies” percent) that’s throwing me off. I need to focus…

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…

Pesto Potato Salad with Artichokes and Sundried Tomatoes

Recipe | Pesto Potato Salad with Artichokes & Sun-Dried Tomatoes

I used to think I hated potato salad. There were two potato salads that I knew of: vinegary German potato salad and the creamy potato salad made with mayo. Both were pretty gross to me. But then I found a potato salad recipe made with a dressing consisting of capers, lemon juice, and olive oil–not…
