Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks

‘Tis the season for soup…and all the things that get dunked in said soup! Although, I’m sure my fellow gluten-free people have noticed that all the great food for soup-dipping contains gluten. Sigh… Usually with tomato soup I go for a grilled cheese with GF bread for dunking, but wanted to change it up this […]

Vegan Gluten-Free Southwest Baked Potato

Southwest Sweet Potato

I drive home for my lunch hour every day for two reasons. 1. Most importantly, I go home to let my dogs outside and give the younger, and still crate-confined, pup a chance to run around before going back into the crate for the afternoon. Here they are after our exciting trip to the dog […]

Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Caprese Grilled Cheese

This past Wednesday was National Cheese Day, so I obviously had to celebrate during my lunch hour. My first idea was to simply make a grilled cheese, but that’s no way to celebrate a holiday honoring the greatest food on the planet. I remembered I had some roma tomatoes and mozzarella left from a previous […]

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, […]

This dish makes a kickass breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I happened to whip it up for lunch, when I hadn’t been to the grocery store in way too long, and only had a few basic ingredients around. Turns out when combined, they are amazing! And healthy too 🙂 Ingredients Egg beaters/egg whites (I used 1 […]

Spinach and Black Bean Quesadilla

I’m a quesadilla nut. I’m not sure why but something about the crispy tortilla and melty cheesy goodness just makes me drool…to the point where I used to make quesadillas for breakfast…and lunch…and dinner. Thankfully I’m out of that phase, but quesadillas are still a go-to quickie meal for me. The spinach and black beans […]

New Nachos

Lately I’ve been trying to make some foods in a Mexican style but with different ingredients. My favorite burrito of all time contains black beans, spinach, jack cheese, and fresh salsa. It is amazing, so I attempted to translate this burrito into a delicious nachos snack, and it was perfect! Tortilla Chips (I like Tostitos […]

Childhood Lunch Remix

I have fond memories of eating grilled cheese as a child, and it’s one food that I’ve never gotten sick of and probably never will. As an “adult” I’ve revamped the grilled cheese to be even more delicious. Because I made this for lunch in the middle of the week I did not pair it […]

5-minute vegan lunch

After my run today I decided to whip up a quick, vegan, protein-filled lunch. I used a recipe found in PETA’s Vegan College Cookbook called “Dorm-room Ramen Delight.” True, I don’t live in a dorm room, but I’m still a poor college student and still love Ramen noodles. I added a cut-up Morningstar Farms spicy […]
