Tofu Satay with Steamed Broccoli (without the skewer) 2

Saturday Quick Post!   This was one of those dinners that came out so great that I wanted to save the list of ingredients but I hadn’t measured everything out.  If you typically follow a recipe to the letter (not mentioning any names, MOM), I encourage you to try this one out and just wing it […]


Macro Acorn Squash Bowl with Mila, Massaged Kale and Tahini Sauce

One of the best things in life is meeting new people and experiencing new things.  Last Saturday was one of the most fun and memorable.  My friend Gregg, who has been supplying me the wines for the Wine Down Wednesday posts, and his wife Kerry (I hope that is the correct spelling!) had us over for dinner.   A dinner party turned […]


Greek Salad with Herbed Tofu Feta 2

The day I was reading through my VegNews magazine I happened to be relaxing on a sunny day, kicking back in a lawn chair, clad in bathing suit and floppy hat when I came across the recipe for tofu feta.  It sounded so intriguing that I got up and made it right then. Little did […]


Indian Spiced Beet and Carrot “Fries”

There is something about the Indian spice blend, garam masala that is so warm and inviting.  Cloves, nutmeg, star anise and cumin are a few of the sweet aromatics that make up this medley.  When I thought of what I wanted to do with the golden beets I got from my farm, roasting came to mind.  Pairing […]


(Almost) Raw Moroccan Mango Chickpea Salad

One more day and I’ll be off; flying through the air, straight to San Francisco where we will be for four nights and then heading over to Sonoma for the next three nights for our 10th anniversary.  This is really the second major trip my hubby Chris and I have taken where we fly out of town (last one was […]


Coconut-Banana Ice Cake with Chocolate Pecan Crust 7

Did I mention that I made my own birthday cake for my birthday last weekend? I figured eh…why not?  I wanted to try out a new recipe and I could make exactly what I was craving. Coconut, banana and chocolate. I can’t think of a better mix of flavors.  It was so good I wrote my […]


Sweet Curry Roasted Butternut and Pear Salad with Walnuts 19

One of my favorite salads at Native Sun is a curry sweet potato pear salad with walnuts.  There is something about the sweetness of the pear and sweet potato against the spice mixture of the curry and the nutty walnuts that makes it a perfect balance.  I recreated it once for my one-year bloggiversary and […]


Raw Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cup Truffles 4

Weekend visits with my grandmother while I was growing up were magical.  First on our list to do was a trip to Kings Castle Land.  Upon arriving at this small amusement park in Whitman, Mass you would cross a drawbridge over a moat.  As a child I found this sort of thing very entertaining.  Nothing […]
