Simplified Pad Thai Salad

Simplified Pad Thai Salad

When it comes to salads, I’m always trying to switch things up a bit so that they never get boring. This is easy to do because there are just so many different ingredient options to work with! In fact, sometimes I use too many ingredients in my salads and there ends up being no real …

A Simple Orange Julius Knock-Off (Vegan of Course!)

Orange Julius Knock-Off

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a smoothie recipe! This isn’t because I don’t have them often, in fact I think it’s just the opposite. I have banana based smoothies just about every morning, but they rarely ever change when it comes to ingredients: bananas, water, dates, and a pinch of cinnamon—yum! However, sometimes I …

South of the Border Black Bean and Romaine Salad

Southwest Black Bean Salad

We have salad just about everyday in some form here at home. It might be a magical kale salad, a sweet and sour cucumber bowl, a beautiful butternut salad, or a salad turned into a burrito with the help of a collard wrap—no matter how it happens, we’re sure to get the greens in because …

Double Chocolate Cinnamon Cookie Cakes!

Oh so delicious!

My husband sure has one heck of a sweet tooth. Unfortunately for him, I don’t really have one. I’m much more into the rich and hearty meals! Lol… Hey, what can I say?!     Because of this, I don’t get around to making many treats or sweets. So when I do take the time …

Loaded Black Bean and Kale Enchiladas

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Enchiladas have always been one of my most favorite meals of all time—along with tacos, burritos, and nachos. I guess I just love my fair share of Mexican food…     Seriously, I can’t think of a single time that I’ve been sick of it. I’m really fond of cumin so I know that’s part …

Cajun Hummus Coleslaw

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

  I’ve been busy gardening and working on my soon-to-be released book the last few days, and the roads are crazy with the Red Cross and the National Guard as they handle the cleanup after hurricane Iselle and hand out ice and water to residents who are still without running water and power.   Because …

Raw Vegan Coconut Cacao Mousse

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Good ol’ hurricane Iselle was on its way to our beautiful Big Island yesterday, so what did I decide to do? Create something with chocolate! It was about noon and we’d made all the preparations we could think of… so I figured I should make something sweet and comforting, you know, in case it would …

Dreamy Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff

Stroganoff More2

When it comes to pasta, I’m pretty sure my husband would keep eating it until he popped if he were presented with a never ending plate of it. Seriously, he’s the kind of guy who could eat pasta for breakfast, lunch, and dinner most days of the week. Just to be clear, pasta is not …

Easy “Cheezy” Flax Crackers

Flax Crackers2

I have always had a love for crackers! They’re great for a variety of different meals and snacks. Crackers can be used to soak up the never ending flavors of sauces, dips, dressings, and soups among many other culinary delights. Growing up, I ate a lot or Ritz crackers and Saltines along with my top …

Mango Salsa and Fruity Kabobs!

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

These fruit kabobs don’t even deserve a post… but the mango salsa that accompanied it sure does! I first set off to make some kind of awesome grilled fruit kabob concoction, but I just didn’t feel very imaginative when I was putting them together. I simply put the veggies on the kabob and ended up …

Fully-Loaded Breakfast Potato Nachos

Fully Loaded Breakfast Potato Nachos

OK… these loaded breakfast potato nachos is one of those epic meals that keeps you satisfied and full for hours. In fact, I stayed full right through lunch (so I skipped it) and ended the day with a nice salad with cherry tomatoes from the garden, because I just didn’t feel like eating much still. …

Nacho “Cheezy” Sauce

Nacho Cheezy Sauce

This nacho “cheezy” sauce was born when I needed some cheese for my fully-loaded breakfast potato nachos this morning. I have a tendency to through ingredients together when I’m in need of a sauce like this, but this time I decided to write it down in case it turned out well. It didn’t turn out …

Tasty Recipe Alert: Cherry-Cinnamon-Chia Pudding!

Cherry-Cinnamon-Chia Pudding

Here on the Big Island I rarely see cherries for less than $9.99 a pound, which is a bit high for my budget! I find myself weighing a bag here and there, I guess just to remind myself of how few cherries I can get for ten dollars. But when I headed into a local …

The ULTIMATE Peach Cobbler Smoothie!

Peach Cobbler Smoothie

Morning smoothies are always so refreshing and energizing, I find them easy to get hooked on! In fact, the hubby and I spent almost a year enjoying nothing but banana date smoothies every morning. It’s true! We bought bananas by the case (alright, we still do…) and bought dates through mail by the pounds (we …

Take Your Taste Buds to Mexico With This Cumin Spiced Spanish Rice

Cumin Spiced Spaanish Rice

Tacos and burritos have always been popular around here. I used to think it was because these dishes are pretty easy to put together and the kids loved them. But now that the kids are out of the house, we’re still enjoying them on a regular basis—so it’s quite clear that we adults of the …
