Salsa Corn Chowder

Summer is upon on us down here in Georgia and that means school is out. I know, I only have a 2.5 year old kid, but let me tell you, parents, I get it now. Those four glorious hours three days a week when I can actually work on Green End or get a blog post done are amazing. And then summer happens. Don’t get me wrong, I love my child with every fiber of my being. But when your husband...

Thai Red Coconut Curry with Pan Seared Tofu

Thai red curry might be one of my favorite flavors of all time and given that we live so close to Buford Highway, I can order it up whenever I want. Except when I realize we only ordered pizza all week or had too many leftovers from other meals and we really need to clear the fridge with all of the vegetables I anticipated eating/cooking. Oops.

Cauliflower Pizza Two Ways

If you are anything like my family, we have been known to have pizza once a week because it is quick and doesn’t require me to cook it.

Though we have managed to graduate from delivery pizza to a “healthier” frozen option (shout out to Simple Truth’s frozen margherita pizza), it still isn’t the healthy option I have been looking for as a replacement. Well, a friend recently...

BBQ Chickpeas on Polenta Roasted Vegetable Stack with Ranch Hummus

I had intended to make this recipe for lunch one day, except the recipe was for a savory salad bowl. As most days go with toddlers, I ended up not having nearly enough time to make it. Fair warning, this recipe does take a bit of time to complete, so grab a glass of wine, turn on some music, and enjoy. The weather was celebrating the arrival of Spring, so a BBQ recipe seemed to be in order. I also was really craving roasted...

Vegan Tortilla Soup

One of the best presents I ever received was the cookbook that my sister made for me when I graduated college. I had started to show an interest in cooking/healthy food during my college years, despite my night time diet of bourbon gingers and Coors Light. During this time, one of my best friends and I started cooking meals together and having dinner date nights, much to the dismay of our seven other roommates. I’m not really sure why our...
