Potato Leek Soup

We love soup. We especially love soup on cold winter days. Being the fortunate recipients of organic produce that is delivered to our door, we have abundant opportunities to experiment in the kitchen. We have both always enjoyed creamy, rich potato leek soup. Many of the recipes, however, are quite heavy and include a lot…

Black Bean Pasta

Robb’s sister, Heather, recently gifted us with some black bean pasta. It’s a terrific gluten-free, high-protein option for pasta lovers. The box that it came in had a yummy sounding recipe, which we used as inspiration for this week’s recipe. Of course, I couldn’t leave well enough alone and took creative liberties with their recipe…

Quinoa Stuffed Mushroom Caps

Remember old-school stuffed mushroom caps? You know, the ones loaded with breadcrumbs and cheese? Feeling a bit nostalgic as 2016 was winding down, I thought I’d make some mushroom caps stuffed with something a tad more nourishing than the beleaguered bread crumb. Enter quinoa. A key benefit of quinoa is that it’s a gluten-free “grain”…

No Bake Granola Bites

I’ve been loving granola lately. I think perhaps it’s nature’s way of steering me away from smoothies on a daily basis. Don’t get me wrong; smoothies are still a staple of my diet, but I also think it’s a good idea to switch things up a bit. As seasons change, so, too, does my diet…

Sesame Hemp Bars

Remember those sesame crisps we enjoyed as kids? I loved those teeth-breaking treats! I recently had a craving for sesame seeds, and I’m convinced it’s nature’s way of telling me I need more calcium in my diet. I’m a bit wary of calcium supplements. There is definitely convincing arguments on both sides of the “calcium…

Vegan Mac n Cheese With Roasted Broccoli

This time it started with broccoli. We received some incredible organic broccoli in our most recent delivery. I wanted to build a recipe around this green goodness. Recalling a funny comment from my friend Joanna about her family wanting old-school veggies with cheese sauce, and knowing my son Will adores pasta, I was inspired to bring these…

Cauliflower Sweet Potato Slow Cooker Soup

Certain things give me ridiculous joy. One such thing is knowing what we’re going to have for dinner AND having it ready when I arrive home. Walking through the doorway to a welcoming, fragrant aroma is divine. I also have to admit, that not being a particularly organized person, I really enjoy that fleeting feeling…

Heather’s Tortillas

I have Heather to thank for this week’s recipe. At last Friday’s “Fun Friday Flow” (where were you, by the way?), I overheard her talking about these delicious corn tortillas that she gets from our local Country Produce. I might mention that this happened right BEFORE our 5:30 pm class. It was a challenge of…

Green Beans 2.0

The inspiration for this recipe is courtesy of Rodale’s Organic Life. Because I can never leave well enough alone, I made some alterations and additions to the recipe, and I hope you like the results. It’s a lovely mix of textures and tastes and is immensely satisfying. I have to admit, what drew me to…

Quick Energy Balls

Recently, I snuck treats in to the movie theatre. I know, total badass. I was meeting friends at the Wednesday night screening of the Mariposa Arts Theatre night and had a ridiculous craving for something sweet. Since my Skittles days are a thing of the past, my options were rather limited. Knowing I only had…
