Recipe: Blackened Tofu Slabs with Peach Salsa

Wandering aimlessly down the cookbook aisle at my local bookstore is how I’ve found some of my all time favorite recipes. About a week ago, I was doing just that. Looking for inspiration and new ideas, I came across a cookbook I haven’t seen before, Vegan Soul Kitchen by Bryant Terry. After flipping through the pages, […]

Recipe: Buffalo Wing Salad

I woke up wanting to make buffalo wings, but I’ve been trying to eat  a little healthier lately, so I decided to put them in a salad. I went with kale as my base because it’s really versatile and goes well with pretty much everything.

Recipe: Rosemary Cumin Sweet Potato Fries

A couple of nights ago, my sister hosted a potluck/game night at her place and she asked me to bring some kind of finger food snack for everyone. I knew I wouldn’t get a chance to run to the store in enough time, so I had to make something out of whatever I already had in […]
