Roasted Tomato Flavor Bombs

Roasted Tomato Flavor Bombs

One of the things we look forward to the most during late summer/early fall is tomato season. It is a time of slightly lower prices as well as a rainbow of colors and available varities. One of our favorites is the large but delicate heirloom […]

Summer Vegetable Flatbread

Summer Vegetable Flatbread

In prior posts, we have mainly talked about how delicious meatless meals can be.  So fantastic in fact, that many carnivores end up loving the food they just ate and don’t even miss the meat. But the other thing that I didn’t expect was the […]

Rick Warham’s Pickled Cherry Peppers

Rick Warham’s Pickled Cherry Peppers

It takes time to appreciate family traditions and recipes. There are very few things that stand this test of time- photos, heirlooms, memories. Unfortunately, people don’t. Since starting this blog all I could think about is the need to document the recipes that I have […]

Baked Plantain Chips and Vegan Nacho Cheese

Baked Plantain Chips and Vegan Nacho Cheese

Sometimes you just want nacho cheese but don’t want all the added ingredients. Here is a way you can have it and know exactly what is in it. The best part about this recipe is that it is also 100% nondairy. So if you are […]

Garlic and Chanterelle Mushroom Pappardelle

Garlic and Chanterelle Mushroom Pappardelle

One of the things that make the late summer months so great is the abundance of mushrooms. I normally would shy away from fresh mushrooms at farmers markets or store, thinking they were too delicate and hard to make. I have since learned that they […]

Brie Wrap

Brie Wrap

This wrap is another example of finding inspiration from delicious restaurants around NYC.  There was a little corner deli near the school that I used to teach at that I loved walking to and either getting a fresh sandwich, wrap, or maybe a soup during […]

Fig and Raspberry Vodka Spritzer

Fig and Raspberry Vodka Spritzer

It’s Friday!  And starting today we will include a new feature on our site called Fun Drink Friday!!!  We thought this might be an exciting idea because we love to have a drink periodically, especially on Friday and I’m sure many people can relate.  For […]

Overflowing Spring Rolls

Overflowing Spring Rolls

If you have never made spring rolls at home, we highly recommend it.  It’s just fun.  In fact, we like to make them as an appetizer when we are having company over and sometimes just provide the fixings and let the guests roll their own.  […]
