Spicy Veggie Chili

Remember 2 Mondays ago when Ohio State shocked the world and won the National Championship? That same night, I shocked the world (of Texas) with an amazing chili recipe– with NO meat!

Mushroom Bourguignon Soup

I can’t remember where I ran across it, whether it was in a magazine, on a blog or on a cooking segment, but someone was trying to make Julia Child’s famous Boeuf Bourguignon recipe. It has almost a full bottle of red wine in it and it got me in the mood to cook something with red wine….   Read More»

It’s full of over 300 plant-based whole food recipes and follows one of my favorite theories about food: I love the flavors of Thai food, but I’m not expert on cooking the cuisine. This recipe requires no prior experience cooking Thai…   Read More»


Spinach-Pesto Salad with Farro

Are you down with the farro (pronounced like the King Tut Pharaoh)? Don’t be intimidated— it’s just another ancient grain like quinoa and barley except farro grains are a little bigger and chewier. Think big, plump, oversized oats having children with brown rice and you’ve got farro. Why use it? Well first because it’s a…   Read More»
