flourless dark chocolate cake

I wouldn’t call myself a devoted observer of Valentines day (don’t judge me), but I will get behind a holiday that grants me an excuse to eat cake, or chocolate, or better yet, a chocolate cake. I’ve grown to love King Arthur Flour’s flourless chocolate cake (ironic, yes?) with a few small modifications- the main change […]

caramelized pork ramen noodle soup

This is my ultimate dead-of-winter-comfort-food; one that my friends and family also love dearly. Though I will say, some of Seattle’s recent weather was positively spring-like. Quite the tease, actually. We all know that we are in for at least another month and a half of cold and grey weather. Regardless of whether that makes […]

vegan green smoothie

Happy New Year! Whether you are eating differently because of a New Year’s resolution or just want to add extra greens into your diet, I’m hoping this recipe will fit nicely into your smoothie repertoire.

Before you hate me for saying that “I’m not much of a candy person,“ let me inform you that I could sit down with an entire batch of this snack mix and eat it in one sitting. And if you looked into the bowl that once held the devoured snack mix, you wouldn’t see a […]

vegetarian gravy

Let’s be honest, most of us want gravy with our mashed potatoes. And spooned over everything else on our dinner plate. Because #Merica. Another point in favor of vegetarian gravy- fewer calories […]

Mix it up this […]

chicken pot pie

I’m breathing a sigh of relief because my chicken pot pie recipe has been in recipe purgatory for years (yes, you read that correctly) and I’m finally ready to share it with the world. What’s so complicated about pot pie? Absolutely nothing. I was down the endless rabbit hole of changing small recipe details here […]

alfredo pasta with browned butter, cauliflower, and ricotta

If you’re like me, this recipe had you hooked at browned butter. Anytime I see browned butter listed, I don’t care what the recipe is, I want to make it asap. However, the best thing about this recipe is not the browned butter (insert surprised gasp here), but that you are rewarded with a creamy […]

golden milk

We are entering a season of warm, spice-filled drinks, and in my opinion golden milk should be in your regular rotation- if not only because it’s delicious, but for the many health benefits turmeric provides. Plus, golden milk has all the necessary components of a classic fall beverage- warm, spiced, with a hint of sweet, and […]
