Cinnamon Apple Compote

I love breakfast. Especially on the days when my wife is home. Those are the days we get to be creative in the kitchen together. This is one of my favorite things to make, too. We’ve mixed these into our VGF Pancakes, we’ve put them on top of our VGF Buckwheat Waffles, and we’ve even…

VGF Mac-n-Cheese

If you’re thinking about going vegan, but afraid that you will miss all of your normal foods, I get it. That was my biggest fear, too. And so the first thing I did after making the decision, was to write down all of the comfort foods I used to eat. Mac-n-Cheese was at the top…

Oven Roasted Potatoes with Crispy Kale

My wife went to a brunch where she had a dish that she absolutely loved. As soon as she got home, she was talking about trying to recreate it, telling me how good it was, etc. The first opportunity she had, she tried to recreate the dish, going off nothing more than the memory of…

Butternut Squash Pineapple Fried Rice

Every so often, I get a hankering for some fried rice. And, though I hate to brag, it’s one of the dishes I’m pretty darn good at making. At least, that’s what my wife tells me. And why would she lie? But today, I didn’t start off thinking of making fried rice. I started off…

Slow Cooker Red Curry Lentils

One of the most common reasons I hear from people for not switching to a more healthy diet, is time. No one seems to have the time these days to prepare meals from scratch. And yet, the fatigue and illnesses we feel from running at the speeds we do, day in and day out, can…

Carrot & Red Onion Soup

Winter. It just calls out for soup. Especially if the winter winds bring you more than just flushed cheeks and frozen eyebrows. Yep. I’m talking about Acute Viral Nasopharyngitis. Otherwise known as ‘the common cold’. My wife came down with a cold last week, and she’s been dealing with a lingering sore throat ever since….

Potato & Broccoli Soup

This recipe is one my wife came up with during the Super Bowl a few Sunday’s ago. She even took pictures for me during each of the steps. And, to be truthful and put credit where credit is due, she is the one I learned how to find random ingredients and make something wonderful. Years…

Three Bean Root Chakra Chili

The root chakra, or Muladhara, is our connection to the earth. When it is open and flowing, it provides us with a sense of security, inner peace, and safety. It is the primary and most important chakra to work on, because it is the base, the foundation, the support for all of the other chakras….

Indian Spiced Oven Roasted Vegetables

“Eat your vegetables!” said possibly every mother in the history of mothers. Luckily, I liked veggies. Well, most of them, anyway. There have been a few that haven’t really agreed with me. Plus, most of the time my mom made them, which meant most of the time I made them, the only ‘seasoning’ on them…

Mushroom Risotto

Cold winter days call for warm, creamy, hearty dishes, and there is nothing else like a good risotto to give you all three of those. This one is not only delicious, but it’s fairly easy to make, too! Here’s what you’ll need: Ingredients: 2 Quarts vegetable broth 2 cups Arborio Rice 1/2 medium white onion…
