I know, sweet potato salad in May? But hear me out! On my recent visit to my grandparent’s house last month, my grandma enlisted me to help her in making a side for lunch one day. Putting our cooking minds together, we ended up coming up with a cold sweet potato salad, using up some frozen sweet potatoes she had and whipping up a dressing from an old cookbook that would (more…)
A creamy vegan parsnip puree topped with crunchy roasted chickpeas and cumin roasted carrots, dinner is served!
Disheartened. That’s how I’ve been feeling the last few days with all that’s going on in the world and I haven’t quite been able to articulate it. While my husband and I were sitting side by side on the couch, scrolling through article after article about the recent travel ban that was put into place, I kept wavering (more…)
A sweet and bright citrus salad, perfect for the winter time with a creamy lemon tahini dressing!
Happy weekend! I’m popping in quickly today to share a winter citrus quinoa salad that has been a staple for me the past few weeks. In an effort to keep with my intentions for the year, I wanted to find a salad that is filling, easy to throw together and hearty enough that I won’t be hangrily tearing through the cupboards for a snack in an hour.

I will almost always get lost and spend way too much time wandering through the aisles of spatulas, cookie cutters and all the other things I probably don’t need to add to my kitchen but kinda/always/really want to. So, when For the Chef reached out to me and wanted to partner together on a post, all I could respond with was a resounding ‘heck yes!’. (more…)
A quick and easy vegan pesto pasta with the summer’s best zucchini, perfect for a warm summer night!
I almost always say this around this time of year but, HOW is it almost August?! It feels like the summer raced by and I haven’t even had a chance to drink that many patio beers and stuff my face with tacos. (That’s a lie, but there are never enough tacos) I also realized that I really haven’t (more…)
Roasted broccoli salad is such a perfect pairing with crunchy pecans and sweet apricots!
My morning has already kind of gone like this: ‘WHAT I didn’t set my alarm?!’ then ‘Crap I still really need to work out.’ which cuts to ‘Dang it I really need to wash my hair but I don’t have time and OMG are we running out of hot water again?! (our water heater has been on the fritz)’ which led to ‘AHHH what am I going to take for lunch to prevent myself from eating a granola bar and fries for a meal?!’. Then, I remembered (more…)
