Today we mostly have a whole lotta avocados! This recipe was actually inspired by the Asian slaw stuffed avocados I posted last week. Between taking pictures,…

Blueberry Banana Forbidden Rice Pudding (Vegan)

Summer berry season is ON. These glorious juicy little berries are the #1 (food-related) reason I look forward to summer. Have I said that before… perhaps about tomatoes? peaches? basil? Blasphemy. Berries are my all-time favorite summer food. And just because it’s fun, here are my top non-food-related reasons to look forward to summer: Dresses…

Do we need to talk about the fact that I abandoned you for the past week, after promising something chocolaty and peanut buttery in your future? I’m sorry. That was cruel. But let’s…

Maybe a bit chick flick-y for Nate, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a liiiittle close to home at times, as the whole premise of the movie is that…

Crispy Baked Tofu Teriyaki Bowl

Crispy Baked Tofu Teriyaki Bowl

You may have noticed that I like to eat tofu with various sauces. Um, this one and this one, for example? But in truth, there is no better match for tofu, in my opinion, than teriyaki sauce. Could anything really be better than peanut sauce?! Well, that is a pretty bold claim. I’m not sure I’m…

Crunchy Flaxseed Peanut Butter

Crunchy Flaxseed Peanut Butter

Happy Monday from me and my tummy full o’ PB! Some weekends call for a couple peanut buttery snacks, and this was definitely such a weekend in our household. More so for Nate than for me – he ran his seventh marathon on Saturday! But he prefers almond butter, so I had this peanut butter all to…
