Tangy Sunchoke Quinoa

IMG_7218

We’ve been getting a lot of rain this weekend and that’s good and so are the cool looking clouds. Miko does not agree, he and Leela are getting a little frustrated and bored. I’ve been catching up on a lot of cleaning and a little experimenting in the kitchen. Last week I scored a huge […]

Balsamic Hummus Dressing

That rear end sticking out from under the blanket is Leela. She’s been in a cranky mood the last couple of days with a sniffly cold and having to compete with Miko and my mom’s dog for attention. And I’m in a cranky mood with work being busy, so busy that even I’m almost too […]

Weekend & Avocado Miso Dressing

IMG_7180

Hi and happy Superbowl Sunday! We’re having a casual family gathering where I’ll be enjoying the company and commercials more than the game. And trying not to eat too many chips and guacamole! Friday hubby and I headed to Tower Bridge Bistro again for this weekend’s vegan menu and sampled everything between us. The charred […]

Balsamic Beet Dressing

Thank goodness Friday is almost here, it’s been a week at work! Always nice to come home to a sweet hubby and Miko ready for couch cuddling. Also nice to keep dinners simple, nutrient dense, and delicious. And this balsamic beet dressing recipe fits the bill being avocado and beet based and packing a tangy […]

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 […]

Butternut Rosemary Dressing

We’re having a lazy Sunday here, Miko burrowed himself and his toy under blankets in his office bed since it’s been an oddly foggy and chilly weekend. The sun did come out yesterday afternoon, so I took the chihuahuas for a long walk. Really long walk since they like to stop and smell everything! It […]

Creamy Ginger Dressing

I’m still getting the stink eye from the chihuahuas for taking them to the vet Monday for shots and going to work today and not playing with them enough. And I feel guilty, they just don’t understand that I have to work to feed them! I fed myself a beautiful kale salad with a creamy […]

Split Pea Quinoa with Lentils

IMG_7116

Leela and Miko are still recovering and maybe not talking to me slightly after yesterday. We took them both to the vet for annual shots and nail clippings which I hate putting them through. Leela is a little better about car rides and going to the vet after multiple teeth cleanings, but poor Miko pouted […]

Weekend Fun

IMG_8262

I have been thoroughly enjoying my long weekend at home relaxing, playing in the kitchen, and catching up on stuff like harvesting and freezing tons of tangerines from the tree in our backyard for smoothies, growing more sprouts, and minimizing clutter in the office. And playing with this sweet little guy of course. Also enjoying […]
