Balsamic-Roasted Broccoli

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013


I’m always surprised when someone tells me they don’t like broccoli…it’s one of my favorite green veggies!

Not to mention, broccoli cooks up super quick, is fabulous in risotto, and goes so well with cheese (or vegan “cheese” sauce!). Plus the florets look like little trees. What’s not to love?

When I ask why they don’t like it, the most common response I get is I guess I’m just sick of it…I need new ideas!

Well, there’s no way I can hear that and not come to the rescue. (more…)

Roasted Vegetable Crustless Quiche with Basil & Pine Nuts {Cuisine Nicoise Cookbook Giveaway}

Friday, August 9th, 2013


There are certain recipes you see that you expect to have certain ingredients just from reading the title.

Like macaroni and cheese. I always expect macaroni, and I always expect cheese…but that’s not necessarily true. Take cauliflower “macaroni” and vegan “cheese”; true it doesn’t taste exactly like the original, but still, it’s macaroni and cheese-ish and delicious anyway.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you might remember that for a time I went through a cauliflower-averse phase.

(It was completely my fault, and completely – unintentionally – self-induced.  To read more about my cauliflower debacle, you can check out this post.) (more…)

Roasted Veggie Potato Salad

Last Sunday, Mike and I went to a picnic at a friend’s house on the beach.

We had such a busy day on Saturday that it wasn’t until late Saturday night that I remembered I had promised to bring a potato salad. I quickly chopped a bunch of potatoes, threw them into a pot, and started to think about what kind of salad I wanted to make with them. (more…)
