Smokey Chili Lime Pasta Salad #meatless

I love taking pasta salads for my lunches during the week – they are typically good hot or cold, and make for a very satisfying lunch.  Plus, they typically have your grains, vegetables, and protein all rolled in to one delicious meal! This one got me compliments every time I heated it up for lunch (I prefer this one a little […]

Strawberry Shortcake for Breakfast!

Lately, I’ve been craving strawberry shortcake.  I imagine it’s because strawberry season is in full swing here.  Everywhere you look, there are plump juicy strawberries that don’t cost an arm and a leg! My daughter actually likes the cheap little shortcakes you can buy at the store, but to me they’re awful.  We love having […]

Siracha-Miso Baked Tofu

I love it when I find a great tofu marinade – tofu does such a great job of soaking up flavors, the marinade is really important.  This is a sweet-spicy combo that will have you munching on bites of tofu straight out of the pan!  I eyeballed just about everything – it’s very forgiving!  I […]

Holiday Entertaining with #Gardein

Gardein sent me some coupons for some free product recently – that made me happy because I just love their products! This time, I tried making something new and different. I was impressed with the chick’n strips, and will definitely be adding them to my list of items to use! Are you looking for something […]

Vegetable Mango Stir-Fry

This is a great stir-fry to take for lunches. It reheats very well! I love adding mangos to dishes when they are in season here. They’re a bit of a pain to slice, but their flavor can’t be beat!  The sweetness of the mangoes pairs well with the spiciness of the rooster sauce!    8 […]

Avocados from Mexico! #Sponsored #iloveavocados #MC

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE cooking with avocados. They lend a great richness to almost any dish! I like to call them nature’s mayo – and they definitely taste a lot better than mayo in my opinion! I love enjoying one sliced on a veggie burger, cut into chunks with a salad, […]

Sweet Potato Curry With Spinach and Tofu

Now that the weather is cooling off again, it’s a perfect time to try this warming curry.  The sweet potatoes break down a lot, forming a thick and hearty sauce.  Ingredients: 1/2 large sweet onion, chopped 1 -2 teaspoon olive oil 2 tablespoons curry powder 1 tablespoon cumin 1 teaspoon cinnamon 10 ounces fresh spinach, […]

Wholly Guacamole and Sonic!

We rarely eat fast food, but occasionally we’ll either be busy or on the road and eat at a fast food place – especially for breakfast. One of my favorite places to go is Sonic, because they make it so easy to get exactly what you want. They’ve recently made it even better, by adding […]
