Sage & Garlic “Brown Butter” Pasta w/Roasted Cauliflower

It’s a rainy summer Saturday, and I’m happy to say I’ve spent the better part of the evening making pasta & listening to podcasts. I’ve only recently discovered Food Psych and really enjoyed the episode I listened today on “Emotional Eating and Diet Culture”. I definitely recommend listening if you’re interested in the psychology of…

Crust Punk French Onion Soup

I mean, I guess this soup isn’t all that crusty, but after the Crust Punk Mac n’ Cheese happenings in T.O.F.U Magazine this month, a friend and I decided I just needed to upthepunx on here generally. I had written a French Onion soup recipe once before a few years back, but decided yesterday that…

NO FAIL MAC N NOT CHEESE.

Broccoli Salad

WHY IS IT 30 DEGREES OUTSIDE?! I am seriously melting this week, and between the heat and all of the time I’ve spent baking, I am so ready to never turn on my oven again (until next week’s market of course). So at this point, any excuse to eat just salad for a meal is…

Getting Cozy for the Holidays With Whole Foods

It was a rainy day in Oregon when I fell head over heels for Whole Foods. Seeking out a quick lunch and some treats to smuggle in my suitcase home to Canada, I stumbled on into Whole Foods. This being my first time walking through the aisles of a Whole Foods, I wandered around amazed,…

Side Dish Saturdays: Warm Quinoa and Wild Rice “Salad”

Happy Saturday darlings! Soooo….I’m kind of cheating because I am kind of eating this “side dish” as a full meal today, but I didn’t want to change Saturdays to SALAD SATURDAYS because reasons. Anyways, this is a little dish I through together while lurking through the cupboards finding something to eat for lunch! Ingredients: 2…

Side Dish Saturdays ft. Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes

Hi friends! This entry is going to be short and I am going to talk about turning one of the most boring ways to eat a potato into a more exciting way to eat the same potato. When I was a kid, we ate a lot of baked potatoes with our meals. Always a “protein,”…

Lazy Summer Pesto Pasta Salad

With all this (gross) heat, I’ll be damned if I even want to spend an hour in my kitchen lately. Gross. So, here is this super easy pesto pasta salad I’ve started making in an effort to make large quantities of things, and then effectively spend less time in my kitchen preparing food overall. Ingredients:…

Happy Vegan Pizza Day!!

As probably most of you know, today is INTERNATIONAL VEGAN PIZZA DAY. And if you didn’t already know that…WHAT ARE YOU LIVING FOR?! Seriously, go fix yourself a vegan pizza now! To celebrate, I decided to use some of the Teese I smuggled home from PDX. Luckily enough, VeganCuts also threw some into my June…

Lemon Raspberry Muffins w/Pomegranate Glaze

By surprise, my summer as officially begun. I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned on my blog, but one of my day jobs is hanging out at a rad after school program, where I’m allowed to teach Elementary kids to be badasses via vegan cooking and nutrition club, DIY, sewing, etc. Due to the flooding…
