Roasted Garlic Bliss Pizza (Vegan)

This is not so much of a recipe… as an “idea”  for pizza toppings.  Though, if you treat it like a recipe and make this exact pizza – believe me – you will NOT regret it! Hands down, best homemade pizza I’ve ever made. What’s interesting, is that this pizza is half cheating, half way-too-much-work…. Read more »

Quick Video – Smoothie Supplements

Just a short video about some of the things I add to my smoothies. My smoothie essentials are always – • fresh or frozen bananas • fresh or frozen fruit (anything! but faves would be peaches, mangoes, pineapple, and berries) • fresh greens, specifically spinach or kale. Some extras as seen in my video would… Read more »

Baby’s First Veggie Burger

I’ve eaten a veggie burger before, but I’ve never made one from scratch! I’d heard that it could be done, but veggie burgers that you buy or eat at restaurants are so mysterious. It tastes good, but it doesn’t look or taste like any vegetable you’ve ever had. The whole thing was a mystery to… Read more »

Recent Recipes and Vague Goals

Last time, I talked about how I’m not really making any New Year’s resolutions. This is true!  But as I am still adjusting to eating a mostly Vegan diet, I do have a few little things I’d like to keep in mind as I make food choices. I can see, now, how it is possible… Read more »


As I was perusing the glorious aisles of Whole Foods, I had spotted my very favorite Indian cuisine ingredient : paneer. Mmm, yes please! I tossed it in my cart next to my previous impulse selection of chorizo. So I thought to myself… There is a world where these two things could be delicious together!… Read more »

Herb Garden Inspiration

Though it’s not exactly growing at the speed of light, I do have usable herbs in my garden already and I’ve been excited to use them in the kitchen. Salmon salad was on the menu for last night, so I figured out a way to kick it up a notch with some fresh herbs! The… Read more »

Shrimp & Pak Choi Udon

I had searched all of Googledom to find a tasty looking recipe to use my baby pak choi (aka bok choy) in. I found a really delicious sounding one, I wrote down the ingredients and then, I lost the dang thing. So I got pretty much all of the ingredients I needed but made up… Read more »

Pineapple Fried Rice

This recipe is vegan, but obviously not raw! I had a lot of fresh pineapple chunked up and waiting to be eaten, so I thought something warm with it would be nice.  I haven’t made a fried rice in years… I actually wasn’t sure I still had a wok. But indeed, I did! I found… Read more »

Dreamy Salad

I used to hate anything sweet in my salad. No fruit or nuts, or sweet dressings. But the older I get, the more I can appreciate some real variety in my salad. I saw my coworker/friend Kris (Hi, Kris!) eating her beautiful salad of field greens with strawberries and I got a little jealous! So… Read more »

Apple Carrot Cake

Oh, don’t worry.. I didn’t go off the deep end and eat a carrot cake! This is a raw vegan snack that I found via EasyToBeRaw. It is a very simple recipe, all you need is : apple, dates, carrots, cinnamon, a food processor, and a knife. I put 2 medium carrots (chopped), 6 dates… Read more »
