Ch- Ch- Chili!

One of the best things to make when the weather is cold and you need a large pot of something filling is chili. Chili has been a favorite of mine for a long time, but only if it’s homemade. None of that canned stuff, okay? As I’ve journeyed through the vegan and plant-based world, my…

Mid-Week Veggie Bowl

This is going to be a short one, but I’ve made this dish twice this week and it’s only Wednesday. So I thought I’d better share. I do apologize for the lack of recipes recently, but with crazy life stuff and the recent weather change I’m really just eating various spin offs of the same…

Improv Veggie Lentil Skillet

I need a vacation. I need tropical weather, beach yoga, evening hot tub sessions, a deep tissue massage, cocktails by the pool…. truly anything that allows me to sleep in and not stress about anything other than beverage choices. Alas, ’tis not to be. All PTO is on hold for next year’s honeymoon. In lieu…
