Teriyaki Quinoa with Crystallized Ginger

I can not tell you how happy I am to be in my new space and all set up after my big web hosting fiasco with Blogger/Google.  I still have a lot of work to do but at least I can create some recipes and work on all the categories […]

Confetti Breakfast Quinoa with Coconut Peanut Butter and Honey

Quinoa, (pronounced “KEEN-wah”) is quite the impostor.  It looks and acts like a grain but it is actually a tiny little seed – and is therefore an awesome source of protein.   Sneaky.   Confetti Breakfast Quinoa with Coconut Peanut Butter and Honey For vegetarians and meat eaters alike, quinoa makes […]

Peanut Butter, Barley and Raisin Salad with Balsamic Vinegar – The Best Salad Ever!

My favorite Salad. A while back when I first was cutting out meat and dairy, I created this salad that I swear is one of the simplest and most delicious salads I’ve created yet. It’s chewy, salty, sweet, nutty and has the “smack” factor of the balsamic. The second best thing? It’s only […]


Peanut Butter Cup Toast

Toast. What else can I cover in chocolate, peanut butter and bananas? I think I’ve got a problem. Peanut Butter Cup Toast Serves 1 Vegan Ingredients 1 slice sesame Ezekiel Bread 1 Tbsp chocolate hazelnut butter, Justin’s 1 Tbsp natural chunky peanut butter (or smooth) 1/2 banana Sprinkle of ground […]


Baked Monkey Oats

Baked oats are so satisfying that I made it again this morning. This recipe is very similar to the last but uses fresh bananas……next time I might put a bit of ground flax seed on top as well. YUM! The nutrition info below is listed for either one or two […]


Maple Walnut Peanut Butter for my Second Bloggiversary

This month I celebrated two milestones; the first being my tenth anniversary, October 6th, and the second  being my (belated) bloggiversary on October 8th . Looking back, I remember coming across a recipe on the blog Closet Cooking; the curried honey Dijon roasted chicken in particular was both where I learned about food blogs and […]


Peanutty “Noodle” Salad

A few weeks ago I overheard a few fellow yogis talking about The China study: “the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted and the startling implications for diet, weight loss and long-term health” at one of my Tuesday night Power classes.  I had heard of this study but hadn’t […]


My Valentine

We had just gotten home from a romantic dinner in St. Augustine at my favorite restaurant, The Floridian.    My heart was racing, my face was flushed, I could barely concentrate….   In the name of love.  I was going to cook with two STICKS of butter and a cup […]


Peanut Butter Mocha Cups

Look at me being all green and reusing baby food jars!  This Earth’s Best jar is the perfect thing to hold, store and take along desserts and snacks.  It holds just over 1/2 cup and is so much prettier than plastic.    And for the dessert, I was reading through […]


Ginger Peanut Pasta Salad

Here is another of my delicious and health conscious lunch salads I made on Sunday to eat throughout the week.  The whole wheat noodles gave nice body to the dish and the strands of zucchini added an additional veggie without the carbs.  I like using PB2 for the peanut taste […]


Raw Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cup Truffles

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 […]


Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chickpea Spread

I came across this post for a chocolate chickpea spread quite a while ago and finally decided to try it this morning.  My goal for this year as far as weight goes is to lose 6 lbs in the short term and eventually 3 more ideally.  I always want a small […]


Sugar Free Peanut Butter Spread

I am someone who, if dared to, would probably eat an entire jar of peanut butter (for no money mind you) just to have an excuse to do it. What’s not to love? It’s nutty, filling and goes with just about anything (ok except maybe mustard). BUT, and this is […]
