Creamy Green Garlic Soup

This recipe is an ever so slight detour from my ususal “grocery store” fare (though regular garlic can be used, as noted), because I have at last joined the CSA world! Last week I got my very first ever CSA veggie box. Now that we live reasonably close to some of…

Jam-Filled Snackin’ Muffins (or Soda Rolls)

I swear, sometimes I feel like Celine reads my mind when it comes to trialing out baked goodie recipes. I purchased some all-fruit spread solely for the purpose of coming up with some jam-filled muffins and PB&J granola for my husband’s morning snack … when low and behold, I opened…

Hoki-Dokie Oven “Fried” Fish Filets

As promised, I have some delicious recipes for using the cereal in my U.S. Mills Organic Breakfast Giveaway (see that post to enter to win now). This particular recipe was a huge hit after a series of fish fillet bombs. For some reason (whether it be frost-bitten fish or questionable…

Random Bites of Autumn Deliciousness

I haven’t created many unique and stellar recipes this past week … in fact, since we have been quite busy, I have been enjoying simplicity a bit. Don’t worry, this isn’t just a “what I ate” post. Think of it like a collection of mini recipes. Lunch all week has…

Cauliflower “Risotto” (Grain-Free AND Dairy-Free)

Recently, I stumbled across the idea of Cauliflower “Rice” on a Paleo / Primal Diet blog. Smitten by this idea for incorporating even more veggies into my dinner (and sneaking cauliflower in on my husband, hehe), I went with it. My first attempt was this Cauliflower “Risotto,” which amazingly turned…

Smoked Salmon Crustless Quiche, sort of

Since my last Dutch Baby venture was such a dee-licious success, I set out to create a savory version the other day. But, I couldn’t stop with that one challenge alone. Oh no, silly me decided to go for the gusto and make it grain-free too! Luckily it worked out okay, but I used ground almonds,…

Trusting Your Gut: Creamy Thai Tomato Soup

I am not always much for stories, but today, I just need to share. Luckily, my story (or two) includes a recipe (a really delicious one in fact) to reward all of you who stick around. Two weeks ago, I was in the kitchen, experimenting yet again. I have been in…

Sweet Roasted Five-Spice Carrots

Don’t forget about the Vegan Brunch and Vegan Soul Kitchen Giveaway! My husband and I got in a discussion the other day about carrots. Yes, carrots. For years he has picked through stir fries leaving a pile of carrots neatly on the side of his plate, which I eventually end…

Healthy Dutch Babies topped with a Chunky Blueberry-Maple Sauce

Earlier this year, I discovered the Dutch Baby; a thick, eggy oven pancake that is sometimes referred to as a German pancake. Though it had been months and months since my first enjoyable and successful endeavor, I got a huge craving for these babies this morning! Of course, I didn’t want…

Sweet Nutrition: True Blue Smoothie

Thanks to this year’s bumper blueberry crop, our [tiny] freezer is quickly filling. But I must say, it is worth it; this year’s blueberries seem sweeter than ever. Plus, you can’t beat the prices. We have been getting loads of these delicious Oregon blueberries for just $1.00 to $2.00 per lb at…

Mellow Maple-Miso Salad Dressing

This year, I have used summer’s abundant produce as an excuse to fit a jumbo salad into our daily diets and to experiment with homemade salad dressings and vinaigrettes. But, with busier days on the horizon, I realized that I must taper off my ritual of experimenation, where I whip…

Chillin’ Out With Watermelon Lemonade

Thank you all so much for your book recommendations! I will update on what I do buy soon … Okay, so this week I had a guest post over at Zesty Cook; to beat the dog days of summer, I whipped up a big pitcher of Watermelon Lemonade! I seem to…
