Sweet Potato Burrito Bowls

I mentioned in my weekly meal prep post for the week of 04/09 how we make vegetarian burrito bowls on the regular. They’re so simple and basic, which makes them super easy to throw together in a hurry.

Honey Pecan Butter

Have you ever thought about how tastebuds change? One minute, your 6 years old and your sliding every single vegetable that touches your plate down to the dog under the table; hoping and praying no one notices. The next, you’re 27 and loading up at the all you can eat salad bar in your local…

Cumin Spiced Jasmine Rice

I never understood people who said they often craved a big bowl of rice. I mean, really? Rice? Now I get it.

Basic Homemade Granola

The first time I had homemade granola, it was a gift from a friend. It was gingerbread flavored and it was amazing. I always had it in my head that making my own granola wasn’t practical or cost efficient — boy, was I wrong.

No-Bake Coconut Lemon Cookies

Grilled Zucchini Quinoa Salad

I’ve been cooking vegan an awful lot lately. No real reason why — mostly accidental. This salad happens to be vegan, but don’t let that scare you — it would be the perfect accompaniment to some grilled chicken or steak or shrimp or whatever.

Cauliflower Pepper Pasta

Many moons ago, Justin and I had a budget and we were good at sticking to it. Time went buy, we started making a little more money, started spending more money and eventually the budget went bye-bye.
