Vegan Broccoli, Pasta and “Cheese” Casserole

Today when I left work I had pretty much talked myself out of working out. I’d spent about 3 hours grading papers (no, I never catch up!) and was just.so.tired. But something (maybe that 50K that’s in FOUR DAYS) reminded me that working out would be a good choice. [...]

Cranberry Bulgur Salad

I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is, this was a dinner experiment that turned out to be a total win. Even though I spent all day thinking about a salad I could make with the whole wheat couscous I was sure I had [...]

Broccoli Pesto Bruschetta

With the holidays fast approaching, the need for crowd-pleasing, festive-looking, and great-tasting appetizers for holiday parties is growing by the day. If you’ve been searching for a delicious vegan appetizer, this bruschetta is a perfect option! I made this tonight to go with a giant bowl of pasta in [...]

Broccoli and Tempeh Stir Fry

Mike and I were talking about my blog the other day and quickly came to the realization that cupcakes bring big hits while things like this do not. However, cupcakes are not exactly what I need to be eating with a 50K race coming up in about 6 weeks. [...]

Vegan Calzones

Sorry for the hiatus, but my kitchen looked like this for awhile: all packed up in boxes. Now we’re settled in a new apartment, with a new (smaller) kitchen, and a plethora of Asian grocery stores just a few minutes away. There’s also a Philipino bakery not far from [...]

Quinoa with Broccoli Pesto

I think people who claim to hate vegetables just haven’t tried them in the right form. Show me someone who hates broccoli, and I can almost guarantee that this broccoli pesto will make them fall in love with it. This is another amazing recipe from 101 Cookbooks, which I [...]

Broccoli-Avocado Pasta

Pasta normally just doesn’t do it for me. I don’t particularly care for Italian restaurants, and I’ve never been that into creamy Alfredop-type sauces. This recipe, however, won me over for two reasons: avocado and lime. It seems like far too often, pasta dishes rely on the same basic [...]

Thai Broccoli and Noodles

I’ve been thinking about Thailand a lot lately. I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since we were running around Bangkok getting drenched in celebration of Songkran. Of all the things I miss the most, food is definitely near the top of the list. I miss the fruit [...]

Miso Slaw

Mike has been in Asia on a business trip (first Thailand, now Hong Kong) for what feels like approximately 27 months, although it’s only been about a week. For the vast majority of that time, I’ve had absolutely zero desire to cook. My dinners have been pitiful, with cereal [...]

Massaman Curry

While I was cooking, the smell of this curry brought back fond memories of the week and a half we spent in Bang Saphan Yai, Thailand. The family owned the collection of beach bungalows where we stayed made a different dinner each night we were there, and this curry [...]
