A Cheesy Western Omelet makes a delicious meal any time of day.

Cheesy Western Omelet {Lactose-Free; Gluten-Free} 1

The thing about eggs that is simultaneously fabulous and frustrating is that they’re best served right away. (Of course there are exceptions to every rule, and the one that immediately comes to mind with eggs is hard-boiled! But you get the idea.) Scrambled eggs wait for no one, and likewise, the runny yolk of a perfectly poached egg suddenly becomes a lot less appealing once cold. Omelets are no different because let’s face it, eggs generally just don’t reheat well.

Detox Roasted Delicata Squash, Pardina Lentil, and Kale Salad with Maple-Pear Balsamic Vinaigrette {Vegan}

Detox Roasted Delicata Squash, Pardina Lentil, and Kale Salad with Maple-Pear Balsamic Vinaigrette {Vegan} 1

My vegan Detox Roasted Delicata Squash, Pardina Lentil, and Kale Salad with Maple-Pear Balsamic Vinaigrette is as delicious as it is healthy! Happy New Year, dear Readers! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and took the opportunity to nourish your body and also indulge when you wanted to (life is too short not to enjoy it, am I right?). I’m guessing you’re probably all sugared out and perhaps a bit tired of eating such rich foods…and hopefully ready for some veggie-laden lighter dishes! Let’s start with this salad, which is a full meal in itself....

Chickpea Garden Vegetable Soup

Chickpea Garden Vegetable Soup Recipe 1

This Chickpea Garden Vegetable Soup is a celebration of summer’s produce in healthy comfort food form. This time of year I’m always torn between wanting a salad or a big old plate of grilled vegetables for dinner, or something a little more substantial like soup. Summer produce is still going strong and this soup gives you the best of both worlds....

Vegan Boston Baked Beans {Small-Batch}

Vegetarian Boston Baked Beans 1

My take on Boston Baked Beans is vegan and comes together in a fraction of the time that the original recipe takes…it’s the perfect side dish! I confess, I’ve never been one to be all that sad when Labor Day rolls around. Yes, I like summer (as much as any Buffalo-born-and-raised-girl can), but in all honesty, I love autumn way too much to be disappointed about summer’s end. (And don’t even get me started about the first snowfall; I look forward to it every year the way a kid looks forward to summer vacation or a trip to Disney. What can I say? Buffalo is […]...

Cheesy Refried Bean Burritos

Cheesy Refried Bean Burritos 1

These Cheesy Refried Bean Burritos are a hit with kids and adults alike! And bonus, they come together fast and are freezer-friendly. When I dormed in college, my friends took it upon themselves to teach me how to cook their favorite meals. An Indian boy across the hall cooked me vegetable curry. My Italian friend would cook me her grandmother’s recipe for chicken with basil cream sauce. And my roommate’s specialty was refried bean and bell pepper burritos....

Foul Mudammas (Egyptian Mashed Fava Beans with Olive Oil, Lemon Juice, and Garlic)

Foul Mudammas 1

Each year, Ramadan comes about 11 days earlier than it did the previous year because it’s based on the lunar calendar. The good news is, this rotation around the calendar year makes it more fair (so to speak) in terms of the length of day because that’s what determines how long is spent fasting (Muslims fast from dawn to sunset during Ramadan). Meaning, if Ramadan were on a set date, for example, on June 21, people fasting in the Northern Hemisphere would always have to fast a much longer day than those fasting in the Southern Hemisphere (or vice versa if Ramadan were on December […]...

Caramelized Pineapple Grilled Cheese with Honeyed Walnuts

Caramelized Pineapple Grilled Cheese with Honeyed Walnuts

What’s up with the pineapples on houses everywhere?, either Mike asked me or I asked him when we first moved to Virginia. Because they literally are everywhere…we noticed them carved or engraved on mailboxes, porches, doorways, doorknobs, door knockers, and welcome mats, and that’s before you even get inside. Once inside a traditional Southern house, you may notice a pineapple design integrated right into the house (for example, carved into fireplace mantels), as well as throughout the décor (like in paintings and carpets)....

We all need a few super easy recipes up our sleeve. For nights when you’re throwing chicken or steak on the grill and need an easy side dish, or for days when you want something a little different for lunch that doesn’t require cooking, my Za’atar and Mint Butter Bean Salad is perfect....

Red Lentil Bolognese

Lentil Bolognese

This dish is a little nostalgic for me, but not in the way you’d expect. Other than being a darn tasty meal, it has no personal significance aside from the fact that it’s the last recipe I have that hasn’t been shared on my blog yet that I made and photographed while Mike and I were still living in Kuwait. (We left there last summer, so that shows you how long I’ve had this recipe in my queue!)...
