Recipe: Vegan Peanut Butter & Jam Cookies

There are some people who aren’t vegan that have a stigma that vegan food isn’t delicious and vegan baked goods leave a lot to be desired. But just like any other type of food that exists in the world, not everything will suit your tastes and there are some really delicious things out there. When…

Recipe: Cherry Balsamic Dressing & Cherry Salsa

Cherry season is coming to an end soon, which is why I regret not getting these recipes together sooner. Truth be told, when I get cherries, I’m too busy stuffing my face with them and eating them as quickly as I can because fresh cherry season seems to go away so quickly. The two recipes…

Recipe: Magical/Lucky Blondie Bars

When my friend from England stayed with me, she did what most others would do…Load up on sugary breakfast cereal! Sadly, I’m not a cereal eater and she left some Lucky Charms behind. That means I needed to bake them into something so they didn’t go to waste. So into a blondie bar they went!…

I am a hummus fanatic. I like to eat it as a snack with veggies or crackers. If I’m out of salad dressing, I like to put a few dollops of hummus into my salad. I also like to use it as a sandwich spread since I do not like mayonnaise. Hummus is also part…

Recipe: Cold Quinoa Veggie Salad

Quinoa is one of my new favorite things to make. It’s like couscous, but nuttier. It soaks up the flavor of what ever you’re cooking it with. It’s very filling. It’s delicious hot or cold. And it’s quick and easy to make! I’ve made this salad many times before. When I’ve brought it to potlucks, there…

Recipe: Lemony Zucchini Fettuccine

My coworker Larry, who has the greenest thumb and can grow so many fruits and vegetables, mentioned to me that since zucchini (also called courgette) are coming in now, I should do a recipe on my blog with them. This dish is my favorite way to eat zucchini and I’ve been making it for years….
