Watermelon Tomato Salad


Between my Costco trip last weekend, our garden, and this huge batch of tomatoes delivered in our farm box today, we’re overflowing with tomatoes! I needed to use some up quick with dinner and was craving something cool and hydrating since today’s high was 106 degrees of dry heat. I decided to experiment with a […]

Tempeh Stuffed Pepper


Tempeh is my current favorite post-workout dinner. Especially after another intense 3 mile run pushing my pace and incline. I’m usually craving protein and and something hearty after a serious sweat session. But not something hot in our extreme, triple-digit heat this week! Tonight I decided to use tempeh in a quick, semi-raw stuffed pepper […]

Ginger Tempeh Hummus


Okay, this weekend might be going by too fast. Friday, well most of the week, was simply insane at work. Time flew, but the stress levels weren’t fun at all and haven’t been easy to come down from this weekend. I spent most of Saturday running errands and getting the house under control with gardening […]

Quick Tempeh Burgers


Is it Friday yet? Someone please say yes! Things just have not been slowing down at work, I spent most of the morning putting out fires and feeling torn in 14 directions at once. Weeks like this are tough because I come home feeling mentally drained and not too creative for dinner. Not a problem […]

Tempeh Tots


It’s only Tuesday and the week is already filled with ups and downs! A downer is work has been nuts still, so much going on with system upgrades, start ups, etc. I’m glad to be busy and it makes the day fly by, but it’s draining when our department is shorthanded. And then there was […]

Spicy Tempeh Filling


I still have not caught the stomach flu that’s everywhere, but the co-worker next to me did this week, ack! And it’s not pleasant, one guy was out of work for a week with it! So I’m still on high paranoia alert disinfecting regularly and sterilizing my cube at work about every 10 minutes. I’ve […]

Spicy Curry Tempeh Skillet


Sometimes I like dish with a lot of spice and kick, one with a savory punch that burns a little. Especially while kicking a cold and looking for something to loosen things up and wake up my senses. This recipe is exactly that, it has plenty of spicy, curry kick. Typically I don’t use canned […]

BBQ Tempeh


Yikes, I’m already ready for Friday. I feel like I’ve been spending too much time catching up on housework that I didn’t get to over the weekend. I need to stop messing up my kitchen so much. Yeah, that’s not gonna happen! Anyway, welcome back to tempeh week! :-) Tonight’s tempeh is Lightlife’s Organic Wild […]

Curry Tempeh Stir Fry


How did Monday get here so fast? And it was another gray and dreary day, overcast, cold and rainy – not pretty. Seriously, where’s our June weather? If the forecast tells the truth, it’ll be here later this week with plenty of sun and temps in the 80s – I can’t wait! No more mud […]

Tempeh Miso Soup


Have I mentioned I’m ready to end this week? Yeah, today was another long and busy day at work. I woke up this morning with a wicked sinus headache, my head was throbbing with pain so bad that I almost called in sick. Thankfully it got better and I only have a minor headache now.  […]
