Vegetable Egg Scramble


People often ask me what I like to eat when I am not working on recipes for an assignment. This vegetable scramble is a pretty typical breakfast/brunch/lunch/dinner at my table.

Meatless Monday: Banana Almond Vegan “Ice Cream”


During my vegan detox, one thing that I missed was ice cream. I come from a long line of ice cream lovers and knew that I would have to come up with a plan to fill the ice cream void. Canned coconut milk is a luxurious ingredient, it adds an unmistakable richness to Thai and […]

Meatless Mondays – New Mexican Posole


Traditionally made with pork and chicken, posole made with the right ingredients can also be delicious vegetarian. In Mexico, this dish is consumed like menudo, to help quell the effects of a hangover. I just love the buttery, crunchy texture of hominy. Two “secret” ingredients for me were my vegetable stock (see the post on […]
