Avocado and Dill Pasta Salad

I have found the dish I want to bring to every potluck from now on. Except I don’t really go to potlucks. But if I did, I’d bring this always.  So full of vegetables, and the dressing is INSANE (in a good way). It has been one heck of a [...]

Soba Salad with Sesame-Miso Dressing

soba

I really love soba noodles.  It all started with the recipe for Otsu in Super Natural Cooking, and grew from there into a mild obsession. I pretty much insist on eating them at least once a week, and I love the way they provide a pleasantly earthy backdrop for [...]

Chipotle Black Bean and Bulgur Burgers

burgers

I momentarily forgot about it, but yesterday was National Grilled Cheese Day!  I created a recipe for Tillamook (which will be up on their blog sometime this month), but here’s a sneak peek: So, Black Bean Bulgur Burgers.  Yep, that’s some nice alliteration. I’ve been trying to figure out [...]

Another Raw Kale Salad

My wisdom tooth is out, and honestly the whole procedure and recovery has been WAY more mellow than I was afraid it would be.  I’m not supposed to run until Monday (boooo) but other than that, things are pretty good. I made a raw kale salad (and a couscous-chickpea [...]

Tempeh and Vegetable Rice Bowls

There’s a reason (actually there are several reasons) why Joy the Baker wrote a cookbook and I didn’t. I decided to play around with her carrot cake recipe (changed the flour, cut back on the sugar a little bit, added extra fruit and carrots and nuts, etc) and it [...]

Quinoa, Tempeh, and Bean Sprout Bowls

Happy Pi Day!  The one day of the year a small part of me wishes I were a math teacher. Actually, I don’t think I ever want to be a math teacher, even today. Science and PE just sound a lot more fun. I wish I had pie for [...]

Curried Lentils with Potatoes

There are certain necessities in life. You need to go to coffee on the weekend. Preferably with a cute baby strapped to you. You need to bring that cute baby to meet someone awesome. Like Joy the Baker! The line may stretch down the block, but it’s worth the [...]

Rice Noodle Salad with Grapefruit

IMG_1621

I pretty much never go to the library while school’s in session. During the average week, I’d rather use my spare time for cooking, running, and hanging with Ellie. BUT there was no work and endless free time last week, so I walked down to the library with her [...]

Kale, Farro, and Tempeh Salad

IMG_1515

I will readily admit, I don’t come up with that many original recipes (It’s really something I should work on).  99% of the time I head into the kitchen with the laptop open to a blog, or a cookbook, or a page torn out of a magazine.  But last [...]

Mole Enchiladas with Kale and Squash

enchiladas

I hope you had a great Valentines Day! Mine was nice and low-key and perfect. Because I love my students, I bought them some treats. And ate waaaay too many of them myself. (That, on top of the cupcakes a couple of students brought meant I was completely over-sugared [...]
