Vegetable Coconut Curry Soup (vegan and omnivore options)

Vegetable Coconut Curry Soup (vegan and omnivore options)

I’ve sung the praises of Penzey’s spices before, and I’m back to do it again! When I saw a soup recipe in their recent catalog, I had to give it a try because it has spices I love, like curry and Berbere, as well as ingredients like potatoes, bell peppers, and coconut milk. It was a no-brainer! I make this soup using homemade Berbere, because traditional is a wee hot for me, as well as homemade vegetable broth. As far as the protein options, if you are following a vegan diet, use a can of chickpeas....

Vegan, Gluten-Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

Vegan, Gluten-Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

I’ll be making an effort to post more gluten-free recipes. I’m dealing with some thyroid issues and one of the recommendations has been to cut dietary gluten. No worries, though! As I’ve learned since cutting dairy, eggs, and red meat–it’s not about what you can’t eat, it’s about what you can eat. And in my case, there is absolutely no sense of deprivation when I’m eating a warm, gooey, bar of spiced pumpkin and chocolate! Delish! This recipe is adapted from Ambitious...

Product Review: Graze Subscription Boxes

Product Review: Graze Subscription Boxes

My sister recently sent me a coupon to try out a new box subscription service, Graze. You may remember from my post on Birchbox that I love the “Christmas present” aspect of subscription boxes–the anticipation, excitement, and surprise that accompanies each. So I went ahead and signed up online. When you sign up using your invite code, you can review more than 90 snack foods and mark them as “Trash,” “Try,” “Like,” or “Love.” That way, you can ensure you...

Quick and Hearty Vegan Chili

Quick and Hearty Vegan Chili

Although I love the two chilis that I make most frequently–Crockpot Vegan Chili and CCK’s Sweet Potato Chili–I was on the lookout for a recipe that required way less peeling and chopping. Let’s be honest–most of the time we want FAST, easy, and healthy meals. This one came together, start to table, in less than 30 minutes. It was a nice change using white beans–great northern and garbanzo–in a traditional-tasting chili. Usually they use kidney or black beans. The fire-roasted tomatoes...

Vegan Holiday Harvest Casserole

Vegan Holiday Harvest Casserole

This recipe is adapted from one in an old issue of Vegetarian Times called “Three Sisters Casserole”–so named because corn, beans, and squash are the “three sisters” in some Native American cultures. This filling casserole has top and bottom crusts made of flavored polenta and a veggie-tastic filling with mild spices. We all enjoyed it immensely and agreed the leftovers will be tasty served with a side of refried beans and maybe some taco or enchilada sauce to give it some extra zip. Vegan...

Vegan Holiday Wild Rice, Cranberry, and Leek Casserole

Vegan Holiday Wild Rice, Cranberry, and Leek Casserole

I have no idea what I’m making for Christmas dinner this year. It very well might end up being tortilla soup or something else insanely fast and easy. But in the pursuit of finding a worthy holiday meal, I am trying out new casserole recipes tonight and tomorrow night. Tonight’s wild rice casserole was a huge hit with the hubby but received a lukewarm reception from the kids. I think one took issue with the extreme variety of textures and the other was just freaked out that she could see all the leeks and...

Christmas Gift Ideas for Ages 3-6

Christmas Gift Ideas for Ages 3-6

So here’s the deal–it seems like everyone, and I mean everyone, is talking about scaling back this Christmas. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve read about the importance of “presence vs presents.” And I get that. I’ve been making a concerted effort to purge toys that the kids haven’t played with and our playroom is the cleanest and most streamlined that it’s ever been. I love it, and perhaps contrary to what you may think, the kids PLAY more in it, instead of whining that they want to...

Quick and Simple Kitchen Organization Tip

I was always annoyed how anytime I pulled out my measuring spoons to measure, for example, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, I would have to wash the entire set of spoons after tossing them into the sink. This is a quick and simple tip to get away from that. You buy some First Command hooks, attach them to the inside of a cupboard door, then separate all the measuring spoons (I know, it seems wrong somehow, doesn’t it? Like breaking up a family). Each spoon gets its own hook and you only use and wash the one you need. I...

Creamy Zucchini, Spinach, and Corn Soup (Vegan)

I was embarrassed to see that my last recipe post was made almost 3 months ago. It’s not that I haven’t been cooking a lot, but with this summer’s move, I’ve been focusing on fast, familiar recipes. Gnocchi and pasta are my friends.    Still, this recipe, which reminds me of Creamy Potato and Leek Soup, was a delicious dinner tonight, and very simple to prepare. This recipe is adapted from Healthy Girl’s Kitchen. Creamy Zucchini and Corn Soup (Vegan)   Print Creamy,...

Vegetable Noodle Soup

You know how when you’re sick, all you want is a warm, comforting soup?  Back in the day, my go-to was a can of Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup.  Now, I turn to healthier and tastier alternatives.  This soup uses fresh veggies and whole wheat pasta and tastes wonderful when it’s reheated too! This recipe is adapted from one by Mary Rondinelli in the Penzey’s spice catalog.   Vegetable Noodle Soup   Print Prep time 10 mins Cook time 50 mins Total time 1 hour...
