Vegetarian & Vegan

  • Follow Your Heart makes some fantastic foods for those of us on restricted diets.  Their newest creation is a vegan egg that is free of soy, dairy, egg, gluten, and nuts.  It comes in this cute little box that looks like an egg carton, but the contents are yellow powder in a bag.  I like […]

  • Can you tell that we have been on a sweet potato kick lately in our house?  We buy them much more often than we used to because our son LOVES them.  As a result, I am constantly looking for new and fun ways to make them so that we’re not just eating baked sweet potatoes […]

  • When I made sweet potatoes a few weeks ago, I had a ton of leftovers and was trying to find a creative way to re-use them.  I came up with this sweet potato and quinoa veggie burger and it was a hit with the whole fam (baby included)!  I was really just experimenting when I […]

  • I am amazed at how many people scoff at the idea of eating turnips.  They are a great, nutritious vegetable and can be used in so many different ways!  My first questions are, “When did you eat them and how did you cook them?”.  People usually say that they remember eating the bitter turnip greens […]

  • Our local Wegmans just did a full renovation and as a thank you to its customers, they featured several products at sale prices that were from 12 years ago when they opened!  Pretty awesome, if you ask me.  So, sea scallops were on sale for $9.99 a pound (fresh, wild, beautiful, local) instead of the […]

  • When we went to the Farmer’s Market two weeks ago, one of our preferred organic farms had tri-colored green beans!  They told us they taste very similar to each other, so we bought a big basket full.  They were gorgeous – rich purple, white-ish yellow and regular green bean colors.  The purple ones tasted just […]

  • I have talked before about the health benefits of cabbage and how much I love it.  In this post, I share a shredded cabbage recipe that is both sweet and savory.  When I went to buy some cabbage at the store, I found gorgeous purple and black seedless grapes on sale, and thought they might […]

  • Sweet potatoes are not only delicious, but they are very nutrient rich; they are loaded with vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber, and several B vitamins.  They are easy to make and can be served as fries, spirals, baked potatoes, smashed/mashed potatoes, or as puree.  We usually eat them as fries along side a variety of […]

  • My last post talked about a vegetable called Kohlrabi.  Since I am finding it at the local Farmer’s Market each week, I have been inspired to get creative and try new recipes with it.  This week I bought some green and purple kohlrabi (they come in both colors) and I used them to make a […]

  • kohlrabi-noodles-allergen free

    This time of year, Kohlrabi is available at our local farmer’s markets and sometimes at the local grocery stores.  People ask me all the time, “What is this vegetable and what do you do with it?”  The easiest answer is:  It is a vegetable similar to cabbage, but tastes like an apple and a turnip […]
