I love mac and cheese. Or should I say, I love gluten-free mini shells with healthy butternut squash sauce made from plant-based whole foods and a healthy addition of leafy greens? Mac and cheese is just easier to say.
The last time I posted a vegan mac and cheese recipe on this blog, I was still in [...]
Like many vegans, I presume, I often get asked what foods I miss the most since going vegan. And the truth is, I really don’t “miss” much of anything. My mind and taste buds shifted so much during my vegan transition that I no longer view my old favorites such as cheese and roasted chicken as [...]
I don’t know about everyone else, but I haven’t felt like cooking a whole lot lately. Not that it’s been very hot this summer. But summer’s still summer, and it has that effect of making you not want to cook. Then again, I’m still, well…me. So, when I don’t feel like cooking, I still somehow end [...]
Quick veggie fried rice with raw kimchi
Since becoming what I like to call a “real person” and working full-time (ugh, not to mention beginning a course of extensive Lyme disease treatment), it’s been somewhat difficult to keep up with blogging as much as I’d like. I honestly do NOT understand how so many [...]
Not my most polished photo, but it does capture the delicious gooeyness that is this lasagna
While lasagna is probably high on my list of favorite comfort foods, there is something very un-comforting about slaving away over the stove all night, especially after an 8+ hour workday. Don’t get me wrong, I love to cook and [...]
I first made a version of this pasta sauce when I was studying for the Michigan bar and looking for something quick, easy, cheap and still actually filling enough to power me through an hours-long study session. Since then, this recipe has evolved into a weeknight go-to that is so easy, it will have Sandra Lee [...]
First, let me start by saying that I have been an absolutely horrendous blogger of late. I’ve neglected my inbox, let comments go unnoticed for days — heck, weeks. And I haven’t posted since, I don’t know, 6 weeks ago?
Second, let me explain. As I alluded to in previous posts, the year of 2011 marks an [...]
Well, I’m back in New York for the week to visit my husband (if this last sentence confuses you, see: coconut macaroons — the post, not the actual recipe). I brought some work with me to do during the day while Gennaro is at work. Otherwise, I had a chance to catch up on some of [...]
I’ve heard that a full moon can make people crazy, but what about tired? Despite catching up on my sleep over the weekend, drinking a few cups of coffee today and not doing anything particularly grueling, I’m sort of physically and mentally exhausted. Maybe there’s some emotional exhaustion at play as well. Has the stress from all [...]
I got the idea for a millet risotto recipe from this site for “clean” recipes, which I discovered through GOOP. I pretty much wanted to try every recipe on there (or a vegetarian version of those that had meat), but was particularly intrigued by the sound of a millet risotto.
Risotto is one of my weaknesses. It’s the [...]
