Black Bean and Sweet Potato Burrito Bowls

Yesterday I did my first speed workout in a looong time. It was cold and miserable outside (total Portland weather, it kind of made me homesick) but I finally got myself out the door around 3 PM for a 5 mile run. I decided to see if I could […]

Sweet Potato Pancakes

Sunday included a few of my very favorite things: A race! (Never mind the fact that it was THE HILLIEST 5K EVER and it took me 30 minutes and I walked up one of the hills – seriously I didn’t walk any of the hills during the Boston marathon and […]

Salad with sweet potatoes and toasted almonds

Waaaay back in August I was in Kerikeri, New Zealand and I had an absolutely delicious salad that I promised I would try and recreate soon after I came home. I kind of forgot about it until I was looking at pictures from that trip the other day and […]

Chorizo and Sweet Potato Hash

Soy chorizo is one of my guilty indulgences. I know I shouldn’t eat it because it’s so processed, but sometimes you just have to run with your inner cave man and embrace the meat. Or the highly processed, probably filled with GMO soy equivalent. I roll my eyes at […]

Thai Green Curry with Kabocha and Tempeh

I don’t know when, but at some point during the last decade, the game “high point, low point” became a habit. It’s easy: you just name a time or an event and come up with the high point and the low point. It applies to decades, high school, marathons, […]

Sweet Potato Rolls

It has been so great being able to bake while on vacation, especially since I have such willing taste-testers (thanks Mom and Dad!). Since sweet potatoes are absolutely everywhere here, it seemed like the perfect time and place to try incorporating them into dinner rolls, which I’ve been meaning […]

Moroccan Sweet Potato Salad

This is a recipe from an AMAZING cookbook called Arabesque. Mike and I have drooled over this cookbook on numerous visits to Barnes and Noble, but for some reason never kicked down the cash to get our own copy. About a week ago, Mike decided to get it from […]

Black bean, corn and sweet potato cakes

I have a thing for black beans, particularly in burger/cake/patty form. And since I discovered how easy it is to cook beans in the slow cooker, I now have some variety of bean cooked and ready to go in the fridge at all times. This week has been pretty […]

Amazing Sweet Potato Fries

I wouldn’t put amazing in the title for nothing. Well, maybe I would, but right now I promise I’m not exaggerating. These have completely changed everything I ever though oven-baked fries could be. They’re awesome on their own, and even better with ketchup. The nut butters don’t overpower the […]

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 […]
