I’ve loved all kinds of nachos since I can remember. I distinctly remember some of the places with the best nachos on vacations, weekend dinners, and grabbing fast food lunches (Qdoba nachos take the cake for dairy nachos there). There is just something about digging into a big plate full of all my favorite foods, piled high into a mountain of crispy, crunchy, cheesy goodness. I mean, who doesn’t love a plate piled high with salty tortilla chips, cheese, salsa and, if you’re lucky, guac AND lots of salsa? Turns out that those big piles of dairy nachos don’t always love me back, but I never have to give up my nacho addiction, because I’ve found the perfect vegan nachos right here! (more…)

Creating this vegan potato soup recipe

Even though we are leading up to peak pie season soon (hello, my favorite eating holiday!), I wanted to squeeze in one savory recipe before Thanksgiving is here! This was a pretty throw together, off the cuff vegan potato soup recipe, but I knew I had to share it. I’m actually not that great at throwing together savory or dinner recipes, it seems like I can never get it quite right. (more…)

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…)

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…)
