Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce

Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce

My absolute best friend in college came to me with a recipe request. She loves butternut squash, but all the frozen butternut squash meals don’t have enough and the veggies get gross.  So she requested a recipe for a butternut squash pasta that was low calorie and simple enough for her to make (she’s in […]

Green Smoothies and my first GIVEAWAY

Green Smoothies

When Hilary Greenleaf sent me an email asking if I wanted to talk about green smoothies and her new book “The Green Smoothie Diet,” my first thought was “No way, smoothies with spinach are definitely no good.”  For some reason, I decided to reply and say, “Let me check out your book first.”  After reading […]

Spicy Blackened Tilapia

I’m trying to be adventurous.  I’m a fairly picky eater and I tend to stay away from meats and fish, but I’ve been trying to branch out.  When my boyfriend orders meat or seafood at a restaurant, I’ll try a bite.  It’s a big step for me.  Usually I’m not a huge fan of what he […]

Mushroom and Chickpea Masala

I love Indian restaurants.  The food is always delicious and flavorful, and my boyfriend and I can both order something we love.  He can get something with meat while I get something vegetarian.  We split some naan, and we’re good to go!  I’ve decided I’m going to go to India and just eat everything there.  I […]

Chinese Steamed Buns

I first tried Shinese steamed buns when a vegan friend prepared an elaborate dinner for a little party.  They were delicious.  Whenever I try to find Chinese steamed buns like her’s, they ALWAYS have pork in them.  That’s when I took matters into my own hands.  “I can bake, and I can cook.  I should […]

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

I love pizza.  I think that pretty much everyone loves pizza.  The major problem with pizza is that it’s too delicious and has about a zillion calories.  I tried to create a pizza dough that you can use with any toppings that’s healthier than a frozen pizza or take out but just as yummy.   […]

Cauliflower with Tahini

Cauliflower Tahini

Cauliflower with Tahini sounds weird, I know.  I first saw this combination on a menu at Pita Jungle.  This place is awesome.  All the food is delicious and healthy.  If you have one in your area, you should check them out.  So when I first went there, I thought I’d try something new, “Caramelized Cauliflower […]

Tomato Gorgonzola Soup

Until recently, I didn’t really like soup.  Something about drinking food with chunks in it seemed really weird to me.  That was until I went to this small soup shop in Tacoma, Washington called Infinite Soups.  I had a tomato gorgonzola soup, and it was amazing.  Since then, I have tried other soups and they’ve […]

Pineapple Shrimp Southwest Salad

On black Friday, I raided all kitchen supply stores.  I also got some presents from my mom of things she rarely used (thanks, Mom!).  One of the things I got was a pineapple corer.  It’s a weird device that allows you to easily remove all the best parts of the pineapple and leave the rest […]
