Breakfast for Dinner!

Breakfast for Dinner!

We had some friends over for dinner this past weekend, and I thought it would be fun to make breakfast for dinner.  Fortunately, they were totally up for it, and not even knowing that we were planning on making mimosas, they brought me some non-alcoholic champagne!  Needless to say, I was very happy about that.  [...]

Spanish Moveable Feast

Spanish Moveable Feast

Alix and I threw another Moveable Feast last Saturday, and we were lucky enough to hold the event at this amazing location!  We’re so grateful to the homeowners for hosting the event.  It was the perfect setting for our Spanish-themed menu. Here’s a shot of Alix photographing the sangria.  I didn’t get a ton of [...]

Vegan Popeyes Biscuits

Vegan Popeyes Biscuits

I know they’re not good for you, but man were they worth it.  Popeyes Biscuits were one of my weaknesses, and the other day I started thinking about them and couldn’t get them out of my mind.  I figured there had to be a way to make a vegan version, and with the fantastical world [...]

Ryan and I were invited to a birthday potluck over the weekend, and since I had to work on Saturday, I wanted to make something that wouldn’t be too complicated, but that would still be really tasty.  I’ve been wanting to try this recipe for a while, and it turned out to be the perfect [...]

Smokey Steak Sandwich with Garlic Spiced Potato Chips

For today’s Meatless Monday post I wanted to once again show you guys that just because you go meatless doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the flavors and textures of the foods that you love.  You can very easily swap them out for much-better-for-you-and-just-as-tasty vegan versions! This Smokey Steak Sandwich is a perfect example, and [...]

Guest Post: Veggie Risotto

For my second guest post I enlisted the help of my friend, Molly Erdman, one of the funniest ladies I know, and a great cook to boot!  You have to check out her fantastically awesome blog, Catalog Living, one of the only things out there that actually makes me laugh out loud.  Molly isn’t vegan, [...]

Lemon Asparagus

Lemon Asparagus

When it comes to aphrodisiac foods, asparagus is the king!  I think that we can all see why people throughout history have given this vegetable that honor, and I mean that literally… I debated serving the spears with the classic drizzle of a hollandaise sauce, but I just didn’t feel like having to wash the [...]

Aphrodisiac Salad

Aphrodisiac Salad

Last year I made an Aphrodisiac Pasta dish for Valentine’s Day, and this year I wanted to make something else that also incorporates foods with aphrodisiac qualities.  This would make a great start to your main meal, or a nice light lunch to get you ready for the big night.  It’s pretty effortless to throw [...]

I make this chili all the time, but I realized that I’ve never posted about it.  With the Super Bowl just days away, now seemed like a perfect time!  Chili is a classic football favorite that will definitely keep you warm as you root for your team on Sunday. This recipe originally comes from PETA, [...]

When you’re cooking for a crowd, you can’t go wrong with a casserole, and this Mexican-Style Casserole is really tasty.  It’s like a cross between a burrito and lasagna, and it’ll serve a lot of people without a lot of work, [...]

Beef-less Stew with Herb Biscuits

Happy New Year!  Ryan and I flew back yesterday, and I took the opportunity last night to use my Christmas present from him – a Le Creuset dutch oven and matching trivet!  I’ve wanted one of these for a loooooooooong time.  I was always torn about which color I’d want, but when I saw that [...]

Easy Chestnut Soup

Easy Chestnut Soup

For some reason I’ve really been wanting to cook with chestnut this year.  I have to admit that I’m intimidated to roast them myself, and they can also be a bit pricey.  Fortunately Trader Joe’s has pre-cooked vacuum-sealed packages of them that are so convenient to use and are also reasonable priced.  Aw yeah! I [...]
