Spiral Pasta With Red Pepper Sauce

Spiral Pasta With Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

I refuse to use jar spaghetti sauce or even worse, canned! I love home cooked sauces, dips, pestos and soups. You just can’t orchestrate that home cooked flavor without, well….making it homemade.   I wanted to make another dish screaming with flavor that you don’t miss the meat in. So yesterday morning I made the sauce [...]

Sweet Potato Lentil Soup

Sweet Potato Lentil Soup-Vegan

I just love soups with a little kick, but to really balance and turn up the flavor, I like a little sweetness! That is the reasoning behind this soup I created. It has become quite a staple in my family. It has a deep warm and smoky flavor that is balanced out with the sweetness [...]

Fettucini With Arugula Pesto

Fettuccine With Arugula Pesto

Couldn’t decide what to make for dinner tonight….needed something quick and with leftover things in the fridge. You should be able to make this with most of your stocked ingredients. Also, a change from quinoa, brown rice and lentils was needed….so I decided on PASTA! We hardly ever eat pasta. However, brown rice gluten-free pasta [...]

Spanish Rice

Easy Spanish Rice

I used to love eating at Mexican restaurants, especially living in Texas. I was addicted to cheese enchiladas and the delicious rice served along side. I’m vegan now so I avoid cheese. I can only imagine the oil and butter used as well to which the rice is cooked in, not to mention, sodium overload! [...]

Hummus With Red Pepper

Roasted red bell peppers, lemon and garlic make this hummus so flavorful…. Mmmm I love hummus but it is usually so expensive in the stores so why not make your own and know it will be fresh! I also love red peppers so the addition to the beans gives it a nice kick. It’s a [...]

Chocolate Cinnamon Granola Gift

Chocolate Cinnamon Granola

I love to snack. In the past my snacking involved too many chips, chocolate or crackers and cheese. Nowadays, not so much. The Funyuns would tend to leave me with an upset stomach…hmm wonder why! These days I snack on almonds, carrots, kale chips or this yummy granola. I have an insane sweet tooth so [...]

Spinach pea pesto

Spinach Pea Pesto (Gluten-Free, Oil-Free)

I love the idea of pesto being healthy.  Unfortunately, most store bought pestos are full of fat, sodium and preservatives. That meant I needed to make my own.  I decided to create mine a little different than the traditional pestos containing basil.  I LOVE spinach so this is how mine is different.  I also decided [...]
