Asian Pizza with Peanut Sauce and Cilantro (Vegan)

Pizza For Days!!

We are on a pizza kick here at our house.  I guess that’s what happens when you make a large batch of homemade pizza dough and there are only two of you!  I’m not complaining though, I love pizza.  Tonight we went for an Asian-inspired pizza.  Oh. My. Gosh.  It was sooooo good!!  Topping it with my homemade peanut sauce and cilantro really hit it out of the park. Continue reading

Pizza, How I Love You So

You know how everybody has that one meal that they say they could eat for the rest of their life?  Well, for me it’s pizza!!  There are just so many different things you can do with it, with endless possibilities.  When I went vegan that was the one thing that just broke my heart; I honestly thought that I wouldn’t ever be able to create a mouthwatering pizza without the fresh buffalo mozzarella and parmagiano regiano on it.  Boy, was I wrong!!   Continue reading

Homemade Pizza Dough

The feeling I get from making a pizza from scratch is pretty irreplaceable.  Even though it’s a fairly easy process, it can sometimes seem daunting, for whatever reason.  However, when I take the time to make my own dough, I feel like I’m taking my pizza to the next level, even if it’s just emotional.  Like I’m some badass viking provider, making gourmet pizza in my own tiny kitchen!   Continue reading

Buddha Bowl with Roasted Delicata Squash, Beets, Purple Kale and Tahini Dressing

“It was October again … a glorious October, all red and gold, with mellow mornings when the valleys were filled with delicate mists as if the spirit of autumn had poured them in for the sun to drain — amethyst, pearl, silver, rose, and smoke-blue. The dews were so heavy that the fields glistened like cloth of silver and there were such heaps of rustling leaves in the hollows of many-stemmed woods to run crisply through.” L.M. Montgomery

It’s the middle of October and we’ve just started to get rainy, crisp, Autumn days.  The cozy comfort food that I crave at this time of year is one of the many reasons why the Fall is my favorite season.   Continue reading

Feeding a Frontier Vegan

My boyfriend is a self-titled frontier vegan, meaning the only animal products he will eat are the ones that he gets while out hunting.  This weekend he is heading out into the wilderness for his annual deer hunting trip.  So, since he is working today before he leaves and I had the day off, I decided to help him out and make him some healthy and yummy things to eat while in the Eastern Oregon woods.

Farm Boxes: The Perfect Remedy for the Mid-Week Drag

My Hump Day Pick-Me-Up

Every Wednesday, I excitedly walk into myIMG_1417 local Hood River coffee house to see a beautiful, tall tower of large brown boxes, decorated with cute and simple sketches of various fruits and veggies.  I find the one with my name on it, and carry the perfectly heavy box back to my car.  Once I get home, I immediately tear into it to see what beautiful goodness awaits me inside.

Last-Minute Tacos with Peanut Butter Sauce

This afternoon, my boyfriend sent me a text telling me he was coming home for his lunch break…

IN 15 MINUTES!!

His lunch break only lasts 30 minutes, and since I was home this afternoon I thought it would be nice to cook him something that would be ready for him to eat when he walked in the door.  Needless to say, I felt a little rushed!   Continue reading
