Island Teriyaki Salad with Fresh Spinach, Tomato and Balsamic-Mustard-Maple Dressing 1

Just a few veggie photos from today’s CSA first.  Too gorgeous not to share. My simple salad recipe.  Press and marinate the tofu a day or so ahead and have it ready in your fridge when you’re pressed for time. I once heard a critique of Rachel Ray that she simply re-edits her recipes rather than creating […]


Fresh Meyer Lemon Pesto with Tomato, Beet Green and Broccoli Skewers 1

Goodbye 2011, you were a good year.  Let’s see…..I gave up meat and most dairy (that is a work in progress), hosted a farm to table dinner and held a Free Range Yoga workshop at the farm, went on LOTS of campouts, trips to St. Augustine, took an amazing trip to the Keys and finally, […]


Second CSA Bag of the Season and a “Turkey” Tempeh Recipe, Perfect for the Holidays!

My second KYV Farm CSA bag, once again, had such variety. Thanks to KYV! Radish and Broccoli Bok Choy and Lettuce  Onions Kale Golden Beets Pigeon Peas Arugula Now-for the “turkey” tempeh-I have a confession. I was going to cave. I’ve cut out meat and have been doing awesome, but for Thanksgiving I was thinking […]


Fall Panzanella with Kale and Cranberry Walnut Bread

Happy Friday  Just a super quick post because I miss ya. And ‘cause I threw this together for a pot luck at work and I got lots of requests for the recipe.  And ‘cause I’m proud of myself for throwing together a season appropriate recipe that people actually liked that had kale. I don’t think […]


Crunchy Kale Fattoush

I do believe I have discovered the dressing secret of my favorite salad at Mandaloun Mediterranean.  It is tart, tangy, sweet perfection and I think I figured it out by accident.  On a whim, while at the St Augustine Farmers Market I decided I would make a version of the fattoush salad with the organic […]


Creamy Sweet Onion Balsamic Dressing 7

If you could come back in a second life as a vegetable what would you be? For some reason this was a question that my dad and I would discuss on a fairly regular basis. Now that I’m actually writing this I’m wondering if we are of sound mind. Regardless, at first he said garlic, […]


Sundried Tomato and Thyme Vinaigrette 8

 There is one question that I almost always ask before I ever take a bite of food at a new restaurant.  The answer to this question will almost always tell me what the quality of the food will be and whether I will return. So far my question has had a 100% success rate.  How is that for stats? Granted […]


Asian Peanut and Cabbage Salad and 7 Facts Award 17

Thanks to Cooking in College for awarding me the 7-Facts Award.  I am so flattered! 1. I go through almost two tubs of plain Greek yogurt each week.  My favorite brand is Chobani. 2. I have gone tenting in the Arizona desert for two weeks at a time, three times. 3. I have always wanted […]


My Christmas Gift: Whole Grain Roasted Garlic Mustard 6

This weekend was one of the best I’ve had in a while.  Busy as usual but fun and productive.  Friday afternoon I had my daughter’s Christmas party which was so much fun.  I love watching all the kids relate and enjoy treats.  They are all so busy exploring and laughing with each other you can’t […]


Ginger Cilantro Honey Tempeh Salad 6

At the farmers market I got the biggest hunk o’ fresh ginger for one dollar that I have ever seen.  Cilantro sounded like it would pair well.  So what does one do with a large bunch of cilantro and gigantic hunk of spicy ginger? Marinate tempeh!  I was  a little nervous grilling this as the marinade was very […]
