Creamy Summery Garlic Dressing


I’m sad the long weekend is over and it was back to the grind today, but we have more fun planned next weekend and a short work week! Memorial Day was very low key here, my mom came over with her super energetic dog, Dasher. All three dogs instantly started competing for her attention, she could not get […]

Raw Vegan Version of a Classic


Friday is almost here, thank goodness! And Miko is thankful for zucchini scraps he gets when I break out my vegetable spiral slicer. Summer approaching means soon zucchini will be everywhere here and I’m looking forward to loading up on massively huge ones at farmer’s markets just so I can use my spiral slicer for […]

Salads Can Be Gooey and Cheesy


Miko is a little bored with me this week. I’m still feeling washed out with this cold, but it’s almost gone! Thank goodness, I’m ready after 5 days of it! Colds can cause some interesting food cravings for me, anything salty, fatty, and/or sweet which are bad options for energy crashes and feeling even more […]

How Hemp Seeds Can Be Creamy Comfort Food


It’s been a feisty week here so far, the chihuahuas seem to have spring fever. Miko has been taunting Leela more to play chase. Leela wants nothing to do with it and turns into a growling tornado when she’s decided she’s had enough. That’s Miko’s queue to hide under the table for a bit while she […]

This Nut-free Cake Pleases Everyone


I’m still recovering from the fun-loaded weekend after being on call for work, celebrating, running errands, and our Easter celebration. I need a weekend from the weekend! But it all went good and we had a huge and active Easter celebration at my sister’s house with family, friends, and way too much food. Thanks to […]

Why Kale Makes Pesto Better


Whew, Friday is almost here. Pesto is awesome, right? It’s creamy, rich, savory, decadent, and has a lovely garlic kick. But the traditional recipes are too decadent packed with oil and cheese, it’s a greasy way to add too many calories, a nutritional nightmare! Basil is tasty and it smells heavenly. But it’s nutritional profile […]

Curry Ginger Banana Soup


Leela is not a happy camper after her vet appointment yesterday. Her sniffling cold has been hanging around for the last week, so to the vet she went to find out why. Turns out she has a sinus infection, got a shot, and has to take 4 pills a day for awhile now. Poor girl! […]

Cocoa Mint Hemp Milk


I did something I usually don’t do for dinner last night – grabbed fast food. Chipotle actually because I wanted to support the Sofritas tofu promotion where you get to come back for a free menu item over the next month if you order a menu item with Sofritas. I ordered mine over the mobile […]

Creamy Garlic Carrot Dressing


Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve, wow. The last two weeks have been a bit of a blur, can’t believe the year is almost over. At the same time, I’m ready for 2015 because 2014 was a little rocky and sad loosing Skipper. Then Shadow. We miss them both and still get sad. But I did […]

Cauliflower Alfredo Dressing


Wow, tomorrow is Christmas Eve! Ready? I think I am, but I’m noticing more stress this year with a crazier work schedule around Christmas. Even Smokey is looking a little more stressed and she just hangs around the house. Miko is not happy with me for not making enough time to play with him. He’s […]
