Garlic & Parmesan Roasted Brussel Sprouts

I will admit, I had a brussel sprout prejudice. Every time I had been around when they were cooked, they just smelled so odd I couldn’t imagine ingesting them, especially since you always hear complaints about these little vegetables. Well, I finally worked up the courage to give them a shot, and it turns out […]

Caprese Nachos with Pine Nuts

On Saturdays I always feel the need to create a delicious, savory lunch from scratch since during the week I’m usually rushing to eat canned soup (Amy’s organic….delicious), or something of that nature. I hadn’t been to the store in a while so I had to work with the basic things I had on hand, […]

Vegan Black Bean Taquitos

When was the last time you ate taquitos? For me, it was many many years ago, back when I still ate meat. We used to get the gigantic pack of frozen beef taquitos that you could just pop in the microwave, and bing! Delicious. Of course, the meat no longer sounds delicious, but the crispy […]

Greenoa Quinoa

My favorite vegetables have always been the green ones. Broccoli, peas, edamame, spinach, peppers, zucchini…I could go on. And yet another favorite green food is pesto. Recently I made Spinach Pesto to make sure I used up all the spinach in my fridge before it went bad (and it was amazing). With that spinach pesto […]

Cinnamon Sugar Roasted Pecans

These pecans are amazing. One of the best parts of the holidays is having a bowl of these on hand at all times. I got this recipe from my mom, because I just had to learn to make them at home! This past Christmas, and the one before that, I made several batches of these […]

Easy Vegan Thai Stir Fry

I make this dish at least once a week, without fail. It is so easy, tastes amazing, and I don’t have to go out and buy a bunch of random ingredients, since I usually have all of these things on hand (and I recommend you do the same)! The great thing about this dish is […]

Spinach Pesto

I’ve determined that the bags that they sell fresh spinach in cannot possibly be consumed by one person before it goes bad, unless that one person is Popeye. Every time I buy spinach for a recipe, I end up with a ton extra, and it ends up getting thrown away, which I really feel intensely […]

Three-Cheese Broccoli Quesadillas & Lemon Parsley Sour Cream

One of the things I’ve missed the most since my Celiac diagnosis is a good quesadilla. I used to make them all the time, but finding a really good gluten-free non-corn tortilla proved to be quite difficult. Finally, I came across Rudi’s gluten-free tortillas, and was overjoyed to find out that they mimic flour tortillas…not […]

Remix Your Leftovers: Make a Pizza!

We’ve all had the experience of cooking way too much food, eating leftovers for 3 subsequent meals, and getting extremely sick of it. My usual solution to that problem is to remix the ingredients into something new! For example, I had previously made black bean & cilantro tacos, gluten-free pasta with vodka tomato sauce, and […]

Gluten-Free Pesto Crostini

I had never made crostini before I went gluten-free, so I thought I had lost my chance. But, it turns out that Udi’s makes a pretty good gluten-free bread! I added some of my favorite ingredients over top of toasted GF bread, and it turned out great. Ingredients 1-2 Slices Udi’s Gluten-Free White Sandwich Bread […]
