Recipe: Smoky Bacon Mac N’ Cheese

I posted this mac n’ cheese picture last week and I’ve had so many people request the recipe, so here it is! This is a tweaked version of like, four different plant based mac n’ cheese recipes combined. I’ve played around with dozens of different recipes, trying to find the perfect one. I’ve used almonds, […]

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, […]

One of those things is French Onion Soup. I don’t know what about French Onion soup seems so mysterious and elusive. It’s probably the ultra-savory […]

Recipe: Pesto Risotto with Roasted Brussels

The other night, I made the most amazing pesto risotto. Risotto can be daunting, but it’s a lot easier than it seems. Since I’m still fairly new to the dish, I adapted one of my favorite recipes from Isa Chandra’s new cookbook ‘Isa Does It’ for the meal. However, I substituted her store bought pesto […]
