Chunky Salsa Taco Salad and my As Seen on TV Confessions 8

I have a confession that is very embarrassing. I’m an “as seen on TV” junkie. I’ve tried: On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best) here is how I would rank some the ones I’ve tried. Music Bullet 10 – a small speaker that you can recharge and is perfect to plug into your smart phone […]

Feisty Vegan Taco Salad 9

Vegan Taco Salad Do you love traveling? I have to say that I do enjoy some travel but leaving home weekly would be tough – my life is so crazy that I savor the quiet minutes at home. When the travel bug does happen to hit me, one of the very first things I do […]

Gingery Kale and Quinoa Power Salad with Garlic Herb Cashews 4

This month my favorite natural food store, Native Sun Natural Foods Market, has quinoa on sale in the bulk bin – so I hope you are all ok with a few quinoa posts!  Quinoa IS one of the trendy foods of 2013, so just think, we’ll be ahead of the curve. This is one of […]

You don’t eat meat or dairy?  What DO you eat?  Even though it has now been about a year, I am still asked this question regularly. Folks still think that when animal food are cut out, that there is nothing to eat or whatever is left is cardboard! Does this salad look like cardboard?  Heck […]

You know when you come across something that is so good you just want to eat it all the time?  For me it is still that salad I told you about a few posts ago- the simple purple cabbage and creamy avocado.  But last night I was looking for a bit more protein, so I came up […]


Simple Purple Cabbage and Creamy Avocado Salad 3

I find cabbage to be a bit intimidating and I’m not sure why.  Kohlrabi and daikon radish have had no problems making it to my plate, but that darn cabbage will reside in its refrigerator drawer, giving me a sneer every time I open the door. Ha!  You don’t know WHAT to do with me! It’s […]


Tropical Grilled Pineapple Salad with Creamy Mango, Avocado and Fresh Lime Dressing (Oil Free and Vegan)

Tropical Grilled Pineapple Salad with Creamy Mango Avocado Lime Dressing Oh my goodness I am one busy girl.  Not only has work been crazy but I’m also taking care of a sick little one, sharing Mila, doing yoga, hitting the gym, writing a food blog and cooking (to name just a few).   And I have […]


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 […]
