Cauliflower "Risotto" {and an Invitation}

Cauliflower “Risotto” {and an Invitation}

I have been on this strange adventure recently… Have you ever felt like change was coming in your life–like it keeps building and building into something even though you might unknowingly understand what that change is going to be and look like?  Yup, this is what I have been feeling for a good while now...
Allyson Kramer's "Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats from Around the World" Cookbook

Allyson Kramer’s “Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats from Around the World” Cookbook

**THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED*** Great goodness friends, today is a most exciting day. I couldn’t even sleep last night knowing what was in store (you lucky ducks, you!) For those of you unfamiliar of Allyson Kramer (is that even possible?), she is the ultra-creative woman behind the recipe creation and food photography of this super ingenius website,...
Blackberry Chia Seed Jam

Blackberry Chia Seed Jam

Over the past year, chia seeds have quickly become one of my favorite foods simply based off of their versatility. They can be easily turned into one of the tastiest breakfast with this Raw Cacao Chia Seed Pudding: Or they can be the complete healthy alternative as an egg replacer as seen in these Black Bean Burgers: So when...
BBQ Cauliflower Salad

BBQ Cauliflower Salad

Bare with me for one moment in contemplation. I promise I will get to this drool-worthy BBQ Cauliflower Salad in a second but before then, I have a few things on my mind. We are so accustomed to believing that it is our circumstances that predetermine our state of being. “If only I had __”, “Once...
Lemon Blackberry Cake

Lemon Blackberry Cake

I’ve been chewing on this valuable thought as of this week (along with the Lemon Blackberry Cake): “We often manifest what we secretly, unconsciously expect or believe we deserve (not what we may tell ourselves or other people what we want)… We all (completely) create our lives and what we truly desire, always inevitably manifests. Getting...
Shiitake Mushroom Tacos

Shiitake Mushroom Tacos

If you haven’t learned yet, the possibilities of turning veggies into hearty meal are endless. You just have to retrain your brain to view food differently. I take a look at mushrooms and immediately begin to make a mental list about everything a mushroom is. Meaty. Chewy. Mild in flavor. Then I ask myself what...
Cauliflower Parmesan

Cauliflower Parmesan

As the old adage goes, “That which is worth eating comes from much pain.” I clearly just made that up but the story that follows is not. This Cauliflower Parmesan is pretty darn tasty. No, it’s amazing but the pain inflicted upon me was horrible. So the story goes: After the photoshoot from this recipe creation,...
Baked Taquitos

Baked Taquitos

Do you ever take where you are in life at this moment and then scan back to an exact year ago and see where you were and how far you have come? One of the things that I enjoy doing is taking the year anniversary of a really big transition or change that occurred in life...
Orange-Rosemary Wine Cooler

Orange-Rosemary Wine Cooler

I have been drinking many one of these Orange-Rosemary Wine Coolers this week. I got the idea from a hotel Matt and I stayed in Seattle and I’ve been hooked ever since. There’s nothing like a rosemary and orange-flavored adult beverage filled with white wine and vodka. Perfect for summer. Perfect for a stressful day....
Giant Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie

Giant Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie

I’ve been learning so much about how to deal with life this week. This recipe is a great representation of said lesson. You can set out to do something all you’d like but always to open to (and expect) set backs. In fact, allow those set backs to be your teacher and your guide. When...

Quinoa Taco Meat

Quinoa Taco Meat

Despite the fact that I never cared for the taste of meat really, as a kid you could have found me at either McDonald’s or Taco Bell. Though I would order a hamburger or a taco, if I sensed one bite of what I called the taste of beef I would revolt it out of...
