Tequila Guacamole

I need to step away from the new baby-related posts. I’m discovering it’s all I’m talking about these days as it’s consuming my life right now. I’m not sure that’s good for the blog. I was snuggling with our new family member and actually thought ‘life is beautiful’ run through my mind. I also felt …

Life Lessons & Cauliflower Risotto Salad

I’m going to take a vegan detour here and get sentimental. I’ve been a parent for 2 weeks now and it’s been the most intense learning experience ever and I thought about starting a journal but realized I had a blog and could share my biggest lessons here with you! Biggest Lessons I’ve Learned From 2 …

Potato Bok Choy Salad

A little bit has changed since my last post… our daughter Linden is now in the world! I can tell you that it’s already a million times harder to do some of the things I love, like blogging. For instance, I’m writing this at 1:00am and she’s sleeping in one arm. But I’m determined to …

Mashed Potato Pizza

You can probably pick 2 posts at random from my blog and from at least one of them you’ll learn that I love carbs. Maybe it’s the potato-loving Irish in me, but I can’t get enough. So when a friend mentioned that they had had mashed potato pizza my eyes nearly popped out of my …

Cookies for a Cause

I’ve been MIA lately, I know. But I’ve been busy! One of the things that has been filling up my free time is my fundraiser for my friend Rubie Ruth. I met Rubie in Kenya last year on my trip with Whole Foods Market for the Whole Planet Foundation (read about it here). As I …

Vegan Ravioli with a Pasta Machine

I’m 32 weeks into pregnancy and I’m starting to visualize labour, do the last of my pregnancy & baby reading, and prepare for 6 months off work. One thing I decided to do was create a playlist for when I’m in labour. I’m told that I will be in too much pain to listen to …

Pineapple Teriyaki Quinoa Lettuce Wraps

I felt like making some sort of wrap but sometimes the traditional corn or flour tortillas can feel a bit heavy. I did a bit of a scavenger hunt through my kitchen and came up with this totally fruity and amazing tropical quinoa wrap. I had some cooked quinoa so I stir fried it with …

Vegan Chocolate Mocha Mousse Pie

This was so good that I brought some for my co-worker and she said ‘this is pretty good for being vegan’…..while eating it with her bare hands.  This definitely satisfied my craving for a super soft chocolatey dessert and it was very, very…very easy to make. If you’ve got skeptical carnivores coming over for dinner …

Coconut Custard

Every now and then Rich will mention longingly that his favorite dessert that his mom made growing up was custard. Each time I make a mental note to make some vegan custard that is going to be the best f**king custard in the world. Because if my husband wants custard THEN HE’S GOING TO GET …
