I made a batch of basil hummus last week that we munched on regularly for lunches and snacks. This lil guy meal was simply hummus, brown rice, and tomatoes.
I’m trying my best to keep it simple because we are preparing to move in 2 WEEKS. (!!) Black bean burritos. I made a big batch of black beans along with salsa. Mixed the two together, rolled into burritos, and put most of them in the freezer. I held out a few for the fridge […]
Nothing new about this one. We really liked the last version of the veg burger, so I recreated it. (although I couldn’t resist throwing in some leftover wild rice. success!) I still had kale from my impulse buy a few days ago. Kale chips! Diced and roasted a couple new potatoes from the market, and […]
Dizzle was going for husband of the year, and he brought home fresh pasta from his recent trip to Seattle. (Pike Place Market…swoon) So good it doesn’t require anything too fancy as a partner.

Black and jasmine rice, edamame, pistachios When cooked the rice was almost purple which was a bonus for the little one. Fun.
This was the last of the latest version of tomato vinaigrette. Tossed it with some whole grain pasta and a crazy lot of basil. Divine.

I planned to make the asparagus/potato pesto, but I ran out of steam. I decided to do a simple toss with herbs, and it was really good. Roasted the potatoes at 400 for about 30 minutes. Added the asparagus for another 5 minutes. Splashed on some red wine vinegar. Tossed with chopped mint and basil. […]
I had an amazing hummus sandwich at a bakery this week. The only problem was the bread quickly got really soggy. Other than that the mix of flavors was amazing. This is my exact replica with one exception. We made a dense whole grain dough and made that into little naan/pita sized individual servings. Instead […]
