I absolutely adore brussels sprouts, but this wasn’t always the case. Growing up, I despised them as most children do. In my early twenties, I gave them another shot and they slowly grew on me over the course of many holiday dinners. I’d place a few on the edge of my plate “just to try” […]

Creamy Avocado Spaghetti Squash Pasta + How To Roast Spaghetti Squash

how to roast a spaghetti squash-6663

Somehow, I managed to live the first 25-26 years of my life before trying spaghetti squash. Actually, I could add many, many foods to that list. When I first came across spaghetti squash, I didn’t quite know what to think of it. Stringy strands of squash? How the heck do I get that to work? […]

Slow Cooker Naked Apple Butter

apple butter-6597

Last year, I dusted off my slow cooker and made my first batch of apple butter. While it tasted incredible, I realized (after the fact) that I cooked the apples way too long. I was left with a mere cup of apple butter from 5 pounds of apples. That sure was some thick, concentrated apple […]

How To Spiralize Vegetables (Without A Spiralizer!) + 2 Veggie “Pasta” Dishes

how to spiralize vegetables-4363

I’m sure many of you are familiar with spiralizer machines – famous for turning vegetables like zucchini into spiraled, curly, pasta-like strands. I first had zucchini “pasta” a few years ago at a raw food restaurant and I couldn’t get over how similar it was to regular pasta noodles. A spiralizer machine has always been in […]

My weekend consisted of about 20+ hours cooking, baking, styling, and shooting cookbook recipes. It was intense, but luckily I always seem to have a lot of fun when there’s food involved. I managed to cap off the weekend by gouging my middle finger with a processor blade. Middle finger indeed. Side note – Have […]

How To Prep and Freeze Veggie Burgers: A Tutorial

chickpea veggie burgers-3164

I usually buy Amy’s California burgers and they cost between $6-8 for 4 patties, depending on the grocery store. […]
