Meatless Monday: Buffalo Flautas

Football Sunday is back!

I have to admit, it wasn't until I noticed my now husband was into fantasy football and the Philadelphia E-A-G-L-E-S Eagles  that I actually watched football. I didn't grow up in a football house, sports yes, football no. When I was a kid I barely knew what the Super Bowl was besides an excuse to pig out on treats.  

But, I have learned to love the Football, thanks to Josh patiently my answering questions all these years. One of the things I love most...

Meatless Monday: Taco Salad

Uncategorized Sep 04, 2017

Taco Salad was one of the first things I learned how to make. I'm talking summer school, Home Economics, summer before 3rd or 4th grade.

Important side note: in my opinion, Home Ec is one of the most valuable classes in school. It was also my personal favorite. Can you imagine if there was some sort of home ec class incorporated in every grade during your time in school. Imagine how much better us millennials would be at adulting. What if we had more practical skills in our back pocket...

Meatless Monday: Curry w/ all the things

September is approaching...which means fall is coming soon...what says fall more than people talking about pumpkin spice lattes (I am not a fan), scarves, boots, and CROCKPOTS. This week my mom and I created a vegan curry dish that is customizable and simple but fancy.

Here's a fun fact about me...my mom is from England! I love hearing all about her experiences growing up in another country. This week we reminisced on her early twenties and the months leading up to moving to...

Meatless Monday: BBQ Cauliflower Pizza

meatless monday pizza vegan Aug 21, 2017

Not going to lie…Pizza was not the original plan for this blog post #realtalk. Earlier this week I made Pineapple Fried Rice, Samosa Potatoes, and Orange Cauliflower for a dinner party. However, I am far from perfect and may or may not have peeled off the corner of my pinky finger while preparing ginger for the fried rice . Needless to say, from that point on I was a hot mess in the kitchen with my finger taped up and my husband and friend helping me so that our dinner party could...

Meatless Monday: Perfect Peanut Summer Salad

meatless salad vegan Aug 14, 2017

My favorite thing about experimenting with plant-based/vegan recipes is the color. I heard that eating a rainbow of colors in your meals is the easiest way to make sure you are getting the nutrition you need. Don’t quote me on that, but we can agree that it is definitely a fun guideline to follow. 

I was never big on making salads, but that has quickly changed thanks to Your Dinner Is Planned. I love how there are different salad recipes inside the Membership, and even different...

Meatless Monday: Potato Tacos

meatless vegan Aug 07, 2017

I seriously love Mexican food. There was honestly a point in high school that it felt like I couldn’t go a day without indulging some type of Mexican delight.

…quesadillas

…tacos

…flautas

…salsa…on everything!

Tacos shouldn’t have to wait for Tuesday, am I right?!

This week’s recipe pays tribute to my childhood neighbor and high school ceramic teacher. He often made his famous potato tacos, and he would surprise us by bringing a batch over to...

Meatless Monday: Hearty Stew

meatless stew vegan Jul 24, 2017

I recently stopped eating meat…I know cliché Californian. I’m cool with it. But, even before that, I always loved experimenting with Vegetarian/Vegan meals. Mostly because I was “always” on a diet, and I was looking for ways to trick myself and my palette particular husband into liking veggies more than meat!

Luckily, my hubby lets me get a little experimental in the kitchen, and for the most part it usually pays off.

With the ENDLESS options of recipes on...

Seasonings Simplified - 25 Spices & How You Can Actually Use Them

flavors seasonings spices Jul 13, 2017

How many spices, seasonings, and dried herbs do you have sitting in your cupboard right now that you haven't used in 6 months?

400?!

What??!!! Ok, ok... I was imagining an over-exaggeration, but 400 is probably pretty accurate, right?!

You know, those spices you collect and never throw away, or pack with you when you move and keep rotating to new living spaces (still never throwing them away).

Or that spice you got for ONE recipe and pushed to the back of your cupboard.

Basically, by...
