  • Dessert Or Breakfast ANY Fruit(s) Crisp

    Listen to this - never again will you have to cut butter into flour and all that mess to make a fruit crisp. This one is made of dreams because it is time saving, calorie saving, sugar saving, dairy free, and gluten free AND still tastes like a traditional version. This is my hands down [...]

  • Spaghetti Squash Peperonata & Pearled Couscous Vegetable Pilaf

    We all enjoyed both dishes but initially I made the spaghetti squash for the adults and the couscous for the kids. Although the recipes are very simple, they turned out unique and delicious. We ate up the rest of the stew too and it complemented both! First, I want to talk about spaghetti squash. Spaghetti squash can [...]

  • Slow Cooker: Smoky “Meaty” African Peanut Stew

    I had a West African Peanut Stew at a natural foods grocery store in Denver, CO a few years ago and it was so good. I think I forgot about it because I didn't think I would ever find it again and recreating it didn't even occur to me. One of the best parts of [...]

  • Ramen Zoodles In Mushroom Broth (+ Harvested Coriander Seeds)

    Who doesn't like ramen? The broth is everything. Ok, maybe the noodles too but for a healthier take, zoodles do the trick.

Perhaps the mushroom and other vegetables or I didn't allow [...]

  • Colorful Asian Lettuce Wraps With Caramelized Tofu

    Our go-to, use-it-all-up, everyone-loves-it dinner is lettuce wraps.

  • Warm Moroccan Style Quinoa With Raw Zucchini Ribbon Salad

    We are loving the fall weather but sometimes it is hard to decide what to eat when temps have been wavering between 40s and 80s! I wanted something soft, spiced, and warming but also cold and crisp. That is how this dinner was born. While my quinoa cooked, I chopped up some vegetables and essentially made a curry. [...]

  • Simple Asian Dinner: Crusted Tofu, Fresh Spring Rolls, Citrus Nut Chutney

    This is a mega post showing you a complete meal with Asian flair. We all really enjoyed this light dinner yesteray on a beautiful, sunny day in Charlotte. Fall and Spring really are the best here.  Lately it feels like sun and rain are alternating everyday! I made a baked, breaded tofu with the easiest batter, [...]

  • Cool & Creamy Chickpea Salad

    Happy 1st Monday of August! I posted about Where I Get Moving this past Saturday when the month started and encouraged setting your personal intentions during this last full month of summer time. I think I have mentioned before that we usually "reset" around here with a dairy and gluten free meal at the start of [...]
