Velvety Potato Soup

Happy Saturday! My friend at school brought in leftover potato soup for lunch last week and it made me start craving it, so I added it into my meal plan and I’m so glad I did. My grandparents used to make a deliciously smooth potato soup that I always loved, and this reminded me a…

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Pancakes

It’s my birthday week and I wanted to start it off with a bang! I used to ask for chocolate covered strawberries instead of birthday cake because I love them so much, so why not make a pancake version?! Yum! Sliced strawberries get soft and caramelized when they’re cooking on the griddle and the chocolate…

Asian Tempeh Noodle Stir Fry

I’ve been wanting to make pad see ew at home for maybe years… because it’s my favorite Thai dish ever but I can never find wide enough rice noodles in the store! I found some rice noodles in the Florida Publix that said wide, but they ended up not being as wide as I’d hoped…

Lemon Blueberry Baked Donuts

Lemon and blueberry are best friends in my eyes, so these donuts are unbelievably scrumptious! They’re baked and oil free, so you’re able to have an indulgent breakfast without the saturated fat involved. They’re tart and tangy but also sweet and soft and the lemon glaze is the perfect topping to these treats. I’ve made…

Mediterranean Falafel Bowl

Wish you were on vacation in the clear waters of the Mediterranean? Me too. But it’s Tuesday so the best we can do is make this delicious Mediterranean Falafel Bowl for dinner tonight and taste these fresh and savory flavors. I use the Trader Joe’s Falafel mix that comes in a box to make the…

Lemon Blueberry Banana Loaf

I woke up this morning craving banana bread and decided to bake a couple to take on vacation. I found a recipe for banana bread on Chocolate Covered Katie and modified it to what I had and removed the oil. It’s still moist, soft, and spongy and I decided to add lemon and blueberry to…

Lemon Rosemary White Bean Soup

I’ve been meaning to make this white bean soup for a few weeks and then this weekend I got the stomach bug. Not pleasant. So all weekend I’ve been eating soup and crackers so why not continue the trend? I got a little more adventurous by adding in a few things that weren’t carbs. It…

Hummus Pesto Bruschetta Dip

This was requested by my bestie Dakota for Galentine’s night and I’m so glad she introduced me to this combo. It’s such a perfect combination of flavors. She usually buys it but to make the vegan pesto I decided to make it. I served it with toasted sliced baguettes and pita crackers. It was a…

Meal Planning 2.11.19

It’s Valentine’s week! I’m so excited to celebrate all of the people I love and take the time to acknowledge it. I know we should always let everyone we know how much we love them, and I try to, but it’s nice to have a reminder to go above and beyond what we usually do…

3 Layer Mexican Dip

For Super Bowl I made this 3 Layer Mexican Dip for Josh and I and it was so tasty! Its so easy you can make it in 5 minutes! I got all of the ingredients from Trader Joe’s so it’s a one stop shop. You just need a can of the Fat Free Refried Beans,…

Creamy Sharp Vegan Mac n Cheeze

Mac n Cheese has always been one of my favorites ever since I was little and ordered it all of the time. It continued to make me sick though so I became wary of eating it. Now that I can make a vegan version it’s game on with no fear! What a freeing feeling. I…

Vegan Cinnamon Swirl Cake

I made this delicious Vegan Cinnamon swirl cake from Vegan Richa on Saturday and it was such a tasty treat! It has common ingredients that I already had in my pantry and I whipped it up in my kitchen aid in about 4 minutes. You make a simple vegan vanilla cake and layer it with…

Meal Planning 2.4.19

Doesn’t a clean pantry just set you up for success in the kitchen? I was so excited to order containers from amazon and organize everything in my pantry so it would be easy to find and so glad I did it. It forced me to go through everything and throw out anything that was expired…

Super Bowl Meal Planning

Before I indulge in all of the finger foods I’m planning on making today, I started the day off right with a delicious nice cream bowl. This has been my favorite kind because it gets so fluffy and light. I’m not sure if it’s from the packet of JuicePlus powder or the combination of fruit…

BBQ Tempeh Pizza

I never get tired of pizza! We usually make regular Italian style pizza with marinara, but I thought it was time to spice it up. I thought about making this pizza last week and thought it would be a great way to use tempeh. Tempeh is fermented soybeans so some people think it’s easier to…

Meal Planning 1.27.19

This past week, I threw together meals mostly with leftovers because Josh has been away and I haven’t been making gourmet meals nightly. We went to Keystone over the MLK weekend and had a blast tubing and playing in the snow. There wasn’t very many vegan options there so it was tough. I didn’t feel…

Burrito Bowl Night

My team from school came over last week for Burrito Bowl and Game Night and we had so much fun! Burrito bowls are the perfect meal to serve for a crowd because you can pre-make all of the ingredients and have it ready to go when they arrive and then they arrange it themselves. They…

Butternut Squash+Kale+ Quinoa Bake

I found this recipe in my new Minimalist Baker cookbook and it fit the bill for being part of a whole food plant based dinner. We don’t have quinoa very much, but we should because did you know it was a complete protein? Quinoa and kale are some of the most healthy things we can…

Tasty Minestrone

This Minestrone was perfect for right after Christmas because we wanted something warming and light after nights of heavy food. I love soups because you just put whatever you like in and then it’s ready before you know it! Also there’s so many varieties you can make and they never get old. Plus it makes…

Chickpea Salad Sandwich

If you’re wanting chicken salad, this is your go to option. It has the same flavors and you can use it however you used to use chicken salad- on a salad, in a sandwich, in a croissant, in a wrap, or in lettuce cups. It still has protein and is a tasty lunch. Let’s face…
