“Energy Truffles” aka Guiltless Dessert Recipe

My man, who is a self-admitted sugar addict, committed to being absolutely sugar-free for the next 30 days. That's a big deal! If you ever met him, you know that if it has sugar, he already loves it by default.   I am not joking! He could pump sugar into his veins all day long and swear that it does not hurt him (but we all know the truth ;)), while I could take a … [Read more...]

Oven Roasted Vegan Sausage and Potatoes

"Are you done yet? Are you done yet?" Hubby was like a toddler on a long road trip. Only it was not the boredom or the distance that drove him to impatience and me to insanity.  In his case, the culprit was the lip-smacking, finger-licking dinner I made and was photographing, so I could share it with you. He was driving me crazy!  "One more minute, dear," I kept calming … [Read more...]

My sister and one of my nieces travel a lot. And I mean A-L-O-T. When I grow up I want to be cool just like them. Every time they go to a new country they come back with a bagful of new recipe ideas.

Better Than Chipotle’s Veggie Burrito Recipe

I remember when I was pregnant with Sprout, especially toward the end of pregnancy, I felt hungry all the time, curiously mostly at night.  I will never forget my night trips to the fridge.

15 Minute Vegetable Thai Coconut Curry

I never liked spicy food. N-E-V-E-R! I don't know why. In my very large family I seem to be about the only one, save my mother, who also has taste buds of a pre-schooler, with this defect.  Or, perhaps it's not a defect, but a blessing, because my face never turns red when I eat my food, I do not constantly clear my throat because the spice was too hot, I never cry (yes, I … [Read more...]
