Accidental Vegan Baking

July 10, 2014

Some of my baking experiments turn into accidental vegan recipes. I remember struggling for so long to transition recipes into gluten-free substitutes. It took a while just to figure out how to use gluten-free flour blends. Then I was challenged to make both gluten-free and vegan desserts. This was easy as long as everything was […]

Green Eggs

May 25, 2014

This is last thing that I really cooked in my rented house. I’m kind of freaking out over that statement and that in approximately 48 hours I will be a homeowner. This is a true back to basics moment. I have nothing in my pantry and only the staples in my fridge. For whatever reason […]

All The Vegetables

May 22, 2014

By now I am guessing you’re starting to see a theme that focuses on vegetables and breakfast. I’m kind of obsessed with both. For whatever reason, I’m hungriest between whatever time I wake up to 10:30am. This could partially be because I wake up in the 4:40-5am range during the week, which makes 10:30 sound […]

May 8, 2014

Remember my sweet tooth confession? Well, it’s not just bad in the morning but haunts me just about all day. It is getting to the level of being an issue again, but I blame that on the last month of training and basically eating anything I wanted because I was pretty much always calorie deficient. […]

Drinking Vegetables

May 6, 2014

It seems as though my sole mission in life is to find a way to consume as many vegetables throughout the day. I do try to get at least one vegetable in at every meal, but breakfast is my biggest challenge. I fully admit to having a sweet tooth and it rages in the morning. […]

Spiced Carrot Cake

April 21, 2014

Mission eat all the carbs is on a roll. I’m kind of convinced that all this sugar is making me a little crazier than usual but its only a few more days before I burn it all of. I also have to remember that eating all the carbs does not mean eating an entire loaf […]

April 17, 2014

Ready for a life changing revelation? Buying a house is HARD. Holy crap. So many phone calls, signatures, to-do lists, emails… add that to sleepless nights spent tossing and turning, thinking “what the heck am I doing? Is this the right thing? Can I really do this?” Let’s just say its been a long two […]

Adventures in Bulk Bin Shopping

June 17, 2013

Last week my local Whole Foods offered 20% off all bulk bin purchases. I made a list of items that I was either low on or knew I use regularly enough that I could stock up on. But like most shopping trips to Whole Foods, I found myself picking up extra items that I thought […]

Chic dinner: Spinach and Chard Tart

June 14, 2013

Every once in a while I’ll get really inspired to make a recipe from Martha Stewart Living or Food & Wine. I’ll admit to drooling over photos in both magazines but rarely taking the time to make them. Usually the multiple steps or my lackluster pantry stop me. But the June issue of MSL is […]
