Wine Down Wednesday – Sautéed Eggplant Caponata Salad (Camping Edition!)

Welcome back to Wine Down Wednesday where I review a vegan dish paired with two different wines from Broadbent Selections. This is the camping edition where I did the wine tasting along with my parents and my friend Justine while camping near Savannah last weekend. Several years ago I made a caponataover spaghetti squash and have […]

Peanut Butter, Barley and Raisin Salad with Balsamic Vinegar – The Best Salad Ever! 1

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 five ingredients. (with the apple, […]


Blast From the Past – Carrot Top Tabbouleh Redo – with Chickpeas!

Last season I created this unexpected recipe to utilize the gorgeous tops of my fresh carrots from the farm.  I just couldn’t bear to throw them away!  Since I got a few bunches with my last pick up I had to create it once again, this time using some chickpeas to create a light meal. I love […]


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 […]


Kale with Walnut Pesto, Raisins, Pepitas and Pine Nuts

Browsing through my favorite Forks Over Knives companion book, I came across an awesome kale recipe for kale with a walnut sauce.  Super simple and I had everything on hand.  I added some raisins, pine nuts and raw pepitas to add a sweet side to the salty tamari.  Oooo baby…this is yum! If you haven’t […]


Florida Winter Potato Salad

Growing up in the Northeast was tough.  Especially since my dad kept the heat just high enough to keep the pipes from freezing. At night I slept with five blankets-when I first got in bed it was like diving into an 30 degree mountain stream. Finally by morning the bed was warm from body heat, but I couldn’t feel my feet due to lack […]


Carrot, Pepper, Raisin and Pumpkin Seed Goddess Salad

What’s the first thing you think of when you make a salad? Lettuce, right? Have you ever tried to bring a salad to work and forgotten the dressing? Boooring. Or thought, I’ll just put a little on and discovered a mushy mess at lunch? Well here is a great solution-pack a lettuce free salad already […]


Weekend in Islamorada and my makeshift Strawberry, Green Bean and Caramelized Onion Salad

My goodness I’m running behind with my posting! I hope you can forgive me…life has been crazy lately.  Before I get to my FABULOUS “turkey” tempeh I made for Thanksgiving I’ll share some of the photos from our weekend trip to the Keys right before the holiday. We stay at a wonderful place called the […]
