Sweet and Sour Cucumber Cauliflower Slaw

Cucumber Cauliflower Slaw

It doesn’t matter what time of year it happens to be, we love a good salad around here no matter how cool or warm it is outside. However, we’re not about mixing up the same old salad every day and pretending like it’s a fiesta to celebrate…     Around here, it’s all about the …

4- Ingredient Maple Cinnamon Bites

Maple Cinnamon Bites

The other day I had a hankering for something quick and sweet. In fact, I wanted something sweet so bad that I decided to skip dinner altogether and get straight to dessert! I guess that’s probably why these maple cinnamon bites didn’t last me and hubby longer than a couple of hours, hehehe…     …

Simply Creamy Poppy Seed Salad

Poppy Seed Salad

I’ve been extremely busy with work and life lately so I haven’t had nearly enough time to spend in the kitchen. My son came to visit from the mainland for 12 days which was fun, for the 3 whole days I got to see him. He turned 21 while he was here and it seems …

Some Ideas on How to Trim the Fat in Your Diet

Avocado 1

Growing up as a chubby kid, I tried to get a handle on my weight by eliminating fatty foods like nuts, seeds, and avocados. Ironically, I didn’t bother worrying about my dairy intake! So needless to say the only thing I accomplished doing this was minimizing the beneficial nutrients I was getting in my diet. …

Twice Baked Potatoes With Broccoli and Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Twice Baked Potatoes

We absolutely love potatoes at our house. We enjoy them mashed, steamed, and bake but we tend to stay away from frying. OK, OK… I’ll admit it! We’ve been known to brown up some potato wedges after steaming them once in awhile. Hey it’s better than grabbing soggy deep-fried stuff from the drive through, right?! …

4 Good Reasons to Eat a Whole Foods Diet

Recently I wrote a post for One Green Planet about a few good reasons to eat a whole food diet. I firmly believe that a diet high in raw fruits and vegetables is important, but the most important aspect of consuming a healthy diet is eating whole foods. Things that come in packages and cans …

Simply Sweet 5-ingredient Apple Cake

5-Ingredient Apple Pie

  Sweet treats are a common thing around our house, although those treats are usually made up of fresh fruits. Whether it’s a batch of date truffles, delicious mango “nice” cream, or heavenly ginger cinnamon cookies, friends can usually expect to be spoiled with dessert-like goodies when they visit. So when we ran out of …

Luscious Plant Based Pinto Gravy

Luscious Pinto Gravy

Before my husband and I went vegan about 5 years ago, he was a complete “meat and potatoes” kind of guy. In fact, he still is! Well, except the meat part of course…   So now I serve him things like veggie burgers and baked fries or steamed veggies and mashed potatoes with rich gravy. …

Hawaiian Dream Tropical Smoothie

Hawaiian Dream Tropical Smoothie

I was doing research for a ghostwriting project I’m doing about Women serial killers today, and I have to say that there are some pretty wild women that have lived on this planet! It seems that many of the particularly nasty stories come from the 1800s and early 1900s… I wonder why? To tell you …

Shreddable, Meltable Vegan Cheddar Cheese!

I’ve finally gotten around to making my own block of vegan cheddar cheese! We don’t use a lot of fake cheeses around here, but I sure was a huge cheese addict before I decided to go vegan about five years ago. So sometimes its fun to recreate some of the comfort foods I used to …

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


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 …
