Tofu, Kale and Shiitake Mushroom Ramen Noodle Soup

What I Ate This Week | Big Bowls of Ramen and Small Plates of Pie

I have a little bit of a favor to ask. I know, favors! No one likes doing favors! My Rosemary Roasted Carrots are in a recipe contest and if I win, Colorful Harvest will make a donation to Community Cat, the rescue group where we got Miso and Mochi. Community Cat helps all kinds of…

Black Bean Burgers with Sriracha Aioli

What I Ate This Week | Black Bean Burgers with Sriracha Aioli (Because aioli is kind of my thing now)

Yes, I realize this is the second post involving aioli this week. It’s like when I discovered peanut sauce and went through a phase when I put it on everything. (Okay, that wasn’t a phase. I still put peanut sauce on everything. Hush.) And maybe you’re all, “Hey Kiersten, aioli is so 2002″ and maybe…

What I Ate This Week + A Cookbook Update

People keep asking me about my cookbook and I guess I haven’t really talked about it much after I announced it in April. (April! Has it really been that long?) Right now I’m in the thick of recipe development–I’m trying to develop 10 recipes for the book each week, in addition to the usual development…

Charred Cauliflower with Clementines & Olives

What I Ate This Week | Cauliflower & Kalamata Olives, Two Ways!

This post really should be called What I Ate This Week & A Half because some of these meals are from last week. And then this week I was so sick that I didn’t eat much at all. Which was amazing for my diet! I know I’m really sick when my husband asks, “I’m going…

Vanilla Blackberry Overnight Oatmeal

What I Ate This Week + Vanilla Blackberry Overnight Oatmeal Recipe

I am still on my overnight oatmeal kick–I’ve eaten it for breakfast every morning this week. In fact, I like it so much that the thought of eating warm oatmeal is now unpalatable to me. (Who knew it was so much better cold?!) Having exhausted my supply of cheap mangoes, I’ve moved onto other fruits,…

Coconut Lime Tofu Soup Recipe

Recipe | Coconut-Lime Tofu Soup

In case you were wondering, I’m still doing Weight Watchers (and I’ve lost 10 pounds–yay me!). It just feels weird to write about it all the time here. Anyway! I typically find it easy to stick to the plan for breakfast and dinner, and I’m not much of a snacker, so that’s not a problem…

Middle Eastern Lentil & Rice Soup

Recipe | Middle Eastern Lentil and Rice Soup

Lentil soup is one of my staple foods. As a vegetarian, I like it because it’s a good source of protein. And since I’m trying to lose weight, I like it because it’s filling without being a creamy, rich soup. It’s easy to make and it holds up well in the freezer. Really, what’s not…

What I Ate This Week | New Year, Old Recipes

I have an obscene amount of recipes that I’ve cut out from magazines, so nearly everything I make is either something new or something I’ve come up with myself for my blog. But this week, I made some old favorites. And some new things too! Here’s what I ate this week: Chocolate Dipped Clementines with…

What I Ate This Week | The in-between week.

I was kind of tempted to throw caution to the wind and eat whatever this week. Because there was a lot of whatever in the house. A lot! I mean, that’s kind of what happens during this week between Christmas and New Year’s, right? You have cookies for breakfast, chocolates for lunch, and leftovers for…

What I Ate This Week | Lots of Cooking Means Lots of Leftovers

I hate to be one of those people who always talks about how busy she is, but I guess I am one of those people. I am busy, y’all! One of the things I’ve been doing lately to help manage my schedule and still eat good, homemade meals is to plan for leftovers the next…
