Energy Boosting Red Smoothie

There’s a lot of talk about green smoothies… but red ones are awesome! Try this energy boosting red smoothie!

Flourless Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

I’m not a great baker. I mean, I have to follow a recipe exactly in order to get it to come out edible. I used to burn the kind of cookies that you just slice and bake. Ugh… Yup, I can cook anything, but baking has always been a challenge for me. Hmmm… maybe it’s because I don’t measure… BUT, years ago, I found this awesome recipe for flourless chocolate chip walnut cookies. And my life changed… they come out great. Every. Single. Time.

Vegan Stuffed Eggplant

This vegan stuffed eggplant is roasted in the oven so the veggies get caramelized and delicious! Sometimes when I make a vegan dinner, I brace myself for complaints from my diners. When I say my “diners” I mean my family. And when I say complaints I mean I get grunts and groans because there’s no […]

Baked Eggplant Chickpea Skillet

I was craving veggies, but also comfort food… so I made this baked eggplant chickpea skillet for dinner. It’s like a cross between eggplant parm and a Moroccan chickpea stew and it hits all the right spots! I’m not sure why, but every time I see a food described as a “skillet” I think it […]

Birthday Cake Chia Pudding

Do you have any descriptive food words that make your mouth water? For me, if I see the words “birthday cake” or “cake batter” I have kind of a drooling, mouth watering response. I don’t know what it is about those words, but for me, when I see them, I have to have whatever it […]

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal

Last week here in New York we were freezing our tootsies off. It was so cold outside! And, unfortunately, it was really cold inside our apartment as well. If you’ve ever lived in an old pre-war apartment, you know the “Three Little Bears” type of frustration with the heat.  It’s often too hot or too […]

Broccoli Pizza Crust

Did you know that  eating broccoli can make you feel less irritable…? Pizza can be a girl’s best friend. Yes, I said it. And I meant it. And no, you won’t be the first non-believer. If I had a nickel for every person who thinks I can’t make my favorite comfort foods both delicious and […]

Paleo Eggplant Meatballs

Here’s a meatball that can reduce inflammation… really! Food in “ball” form is just fun. But, then again, I think finger food and appetizers just taste better than big portions of food. It just tastes does. It’s like food on a stick — when my kids were young, I’d cut up whatever I was serving […]

Slow Cooker Dairy-Free Grain-Free Vegan Enchiladas

These slow cooker dairy-free grain-free vegan enchiladas are so simple and delicious… I love anything in a wrap of any kind. I don’t know what it is, but things just taste better when they are rolled up. But when I started eating paleo, I sadly left my wraps behind. And I’ve so missed my burritos, […]
