Our go to fast(er) food places are Chipotle and Vui's Kitchen. This summer while I was training for the Chicago Marathon, I had a slight case of food poisoning the night before and then again after my run. It was the only long run I did inside, you know, easy access to bathrooms... I needed something that would be easy on my stomach, and Vui's pho was just the remedy. I now associate it with magical healing powers. Making broth from scratch is something I have always wanted to do and was also a goal for this year in my life, this was a great starter recipe to fulfill my goal! (One more thing!! Hello to my precious friend Jess, from college, who requested this recipe!!)
I have been making Lentil Mushroom Meatballs on the reg for the last two years. After a long history with veggie burgers, I welcomed the challenge of developing a recipe for flavorful 'meat'balls. I figured it was an attainable goal since veggie burgers are one of my favorite things to eat. In the process, I found two magical ingredients that really make these AMAZEMEATLESSBALLS!!!
This recipe has been my go to recipe for years!! It is super quick, easy, and nutritious! Somehow, during the last couple of months, I managed to make it even easier by straight up microwaving the sweet potato instead of roasting it.... This recipe is will be the perfect addition to your life during these next few weeks when everyone seems to have delicious holiday candy and cookies on hand.
Last week, we started a new chapter in our lives. We moved to into our first house!! Our house seems to have been built with our family in mind, and our neighbors are fantastic! The kitchen was a MAJOR selling point for us, I finally got the gas range I have been lusting after. Now if I could just get the hang of cooking on it... Until then, we will be eating toast for most of our meals until I can figure out how to not burn everything aside from eggs and soup. This recipe is for those times when you need a healthy, delicious, somewhat creative snack or a lovely vegetarian/vegan pleasing appetizer (and for those times when your brain must still be packed somewhere).
It took me a couple of years to acclimate to Nashville summers. No t-shirts (if you sweat as much as I do...), God help us, NO gray, breathable fabrics only, no pants EVER, you get the idea. One night before dinner time, I asked P to research exactly this: 'cold summer vegetable recipes' and 'cold dinners for hot summer days'. We didn't really find much that could be ready super quick. (Sometimes I wait until I absolutely MUST eat within minutes, and that kind of limits things.)
ODE TO GRILLED PIZZA
Roses are red, violets are blue, all day long I think about you.
The way the mozzarella melts so evenly, it fills every crevice just so evenly.
Your ever so crispy crust, makes my heart want to bust.
First thing in the morning, and late into the night, I just can't wait until my next bite!!!
Sometimes life gets hairy and you forget to do certain things that are important to sustain life. Like eat. Maybe you've probably been having hunger pains and grumbles for a while now, maybe they even started around 3:00 pm, but waves of anxiety or worry might have extinguished them. These quesadillas were born out of that exact scenario and were a total accident. An amazing accident that happened after only 30 minutes of effort!! They’re healthy, fresh, full of protein, fulfilling, and bursting with flavor. They will use up that pepper in your veggie drawer and the last few cherry tomatoes.
For me, making food is kind of a neutralizer. Or maybe, normalizer is a better way to say that. In stressful situations it makes me feel like I am doing the following:
- being productive
- providing something healthy and nourishing for someone
- showing my family and friends I love them
Burger Up’s Marathon Burger inspired this recipe, it was the first veggie burger I ever fell in love with. Not to brag, but my husband says he likes these better, so……. I eat one of these guys the day before most of my races if I can (and by most of my races I mean the one I typically run in April).
If you’re looking for something healthy, easy, and quite versatile, this would be a great recipe for you! Make these delightful little burgers and post a picture of them on Instagram!
