Tofu Satay with Steamed Broccoli (without the skewer) 2

Tofu Satay with Steamed Broccoli is a mouthwatering medley of flavors – salty, sweet, savory, aromatic and pungent. One bite and you’ll be in heaven! 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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


Roasted Brussels with Creamy Mustard Sauce

Source Recently I got Brussels sprouts with my CSA. This was a first for me – getting them on the stalk. I have roasted them before and can’t say I liked them. Since they were from the farm I decided to give them another try. I roasted them and then […]

(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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]
