Ooey-Gooey Carrot Cake Loaf

It’s a big week for the United States: both Easter and Passover. Both holidays are times when we go to religious services, visit our family and friends, and eat great meals together. But this year, because of the coronavirus, most of us can’t see our loved ones this week. It’s odd to be celebrating the…

Easy Potato Hash For Two

I want to take a moment and say a huge THANK YOU to all of you who take the time to read and comment on my blog. I’ve definitely had moments of doubt since starting this blog, wondering if anyone out there cares at all what I’m writing about, and you all make the whole…

Grilled Eggplant & Halloumi Salad

These days I go back and forth between eating super healthy and eating junk food. Sitting at home all day, stressing about the end of the world, it’s just an emotional eating disaster. But our bodies are at their best when we feed them nourishing, nutritious meals and while there’s no scientific proof that healthy…

A Vegetarian Loco Moco (Hawaiian Plate Lunch)

How’s everyone doing? It’s safe to say that wherever you are, it’s been a rough week. And although I wrote about coronavirus last week, I’m not going to turn this into a corona-chronicle (the world has enough of those). No, I’m going to focus on what I do best…making food. After all, it’s a great…

Burmese-Inspired Coconut Noodle Soup (Ohno Kauk Swe)

This week was gray and rainy in New York, with a bitter wind whipping through the streets. There’s no better time of year for a comforting soup. What I like most about this coconut noodle soup is that it brings Burmese food into your kitchen using only ingredients you can find at your grocery store,…

Looking for shareable vegetarian or vegan recipes for your Super Bowl party? Impress meat eaters and vegetarians alike with these no-stress spicy bean party sliders! Perfect for any gathering, but especially great for ones that involves football, funny commercials (we hope), and bar snacks. Let’s be honest…veggie burgers have had a bad rap. In my…

Chocolate “Resolution” Smoothie

This chocolate smoothie has become a go-to morning beverage for me. With sweet cherries, banana, and peanut butter, it tastes like dessert, but only contains ingredients that are super healthy! That’s a win-win in my book. Click on the link for the recipe.

Buttery Thanksgiving Stuffing

This stuffing is buttery and popping with herbs, mixing crunchy celery with soft chewy bread and sweet roasted squash. Since it’s vegetarian (or vegan!), it takes only 30 minutes to throw together. There have never been leftovers with this recipe, much to my dismay. A must-serve for your Thanksgiving table! My favorite holiday of the…

Costa Rican Portabello Burger with Cilantro-Lime Aioli

Have you ever bought an unusual condiment for a recipe, only to find it slowly growing old in your fridge? This was definitely the case with my bottle of Costa Rican Salsa Lizano, which I bought to make Gallo Pinto. Now don’t get me wrong, I love a good rice and beans, but I also…

Apple Pie Cinnamon Buns

Is it a cinnamon roll with an apple pie twist, or an apple pie in a bun? Either way, these baked gooey rolls smothered in a luscious cream cheese icing merge two of my favorite fall foods together for apple spice bliss that is perfect for your next fall brunch or a lazy rainy day…
