Vegan Stuffed Shells

Sometimes you just need a good hearty pasta dish…and sometimes you just need your kids to EAT SOME FREAKING VEGETABLES ALREADY!!!  Well, at least this fills both requirements; I got my yummy pasta and my kids unknowingly ate spinach, mushrooms, onions, beans, and tofu.  And everyone loved them, no questions asked.  Parenting win. Ingredients: 26…

Coconut Curried Quinoa

Easy 3-step creamy coconut curried quinoa. A versatile recipe that is excellent a main dish or a side to grilled veggies.

Hummus Salad

Hummus salad is one of my favorite things to eat.  You get a little bit of everything;  your veggies, fruits, nuts, some protein, a little bit of fiber…and it is so good.  I probably have this at least twice a week since we tend to keep most of these ingredients in the house at all times….

Vegan Pastitsio

Pastitsio is a Greek baked casserole with layers of pasta, meat sauce, and béchamel that is savory with a hint of sweetness.   It is one of my all-time childhood favorites and brings back memories of going into Detroit’s Greektown for a big family dinner when our Greek relatives came into town. Creating a vegan…

Grilled Asian Bella Skewers

So after about a two month hiatus, I am finally back at it.  My family moved into a new house and between the move, unpacking, decorating, and all the craziness that comes with having two babies, I’m lucky to have my sanity.  Fortunately, I have a great husband and plenty of red wine that pulled…

Garlic Brussels Sprouts and Roasted Tomatoes with Crispy Leeks

Sage Scented Gnocchi and Sautéed Mushrooms with Creamy Garlic Sauce

This recipe combines so many of my favorite things; potatoes, sage, mushrooms, garlic.  The gnocchi are pillowy and soft with a hint of sage.  The mushrooms are woodsy and pretty much fabulous.  The sauce is garlicy, smooth, creamy, and salty…I would drink it, but that’s just gross. If you don’t want to make enough for six…

Spaghetti Squash with Spinach Pesto

I created this recipe on accident.  I was at home with two sick kids, was running low on groceries…and time according to whines of being hungry, and was out of ideas.  I stood in my kitchen and looked around and hallelujah, there was a beautiful spaghetti squash.  I was an hour away from a healthy…

Vegan Herb Cabbage Rolls

This is truly a must-try recipe. Ingredients: Sauce 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 yellow onion, chopped 2 cups tomato sauce, canned 2 cups crushed…
