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

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...
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...

Cauliflower Spanish "Rice"

Cauliflower Spanish “Rice”

I try my best in life to maintain a balanced mentality towards food by avoiding using descriptive words like “off-limits”, “guilty”, or even allowing myself to feel shame after eating. (Note that I said try: I am not perfect). Not that I was always this way. I used to be a slave to food. I would...
Cauliflower Cream of Wheat

Cauliflower Cream of Wheat

I’m officially off my veggie rocker. Or really it’s cauliflower. I am cauliflower obsessed! I’m obsessed with finding creative and inventive ways to use cauliflower and I cannot be stopped. First it was Spanish Rice. Then as a Parmesan. Then as Beer-Battered Tacos. Now as Cream of Wheat?! A Cauliflower Cream of Wheat…this is complete insanity. If...

Beer-Battered Cauliflower Tacos

There are 3 things you need in life: 1). Something to do, 2). Something to love, and 3). Something to look forward to. And beer. The silent 4th. Oh, and cauliflower that has been dipped in a beer batter and eaten like tacos. When you are not happy, you are not doing one of those things....

These mini burgers are just what your guests want to sink...
