Meatless Meatballs – Vegan & Grain-Free

meatless meatballs

  I really could have called these meatless meatballs three ingredient meatless meatballs  because that’s all they really need in their most basic form, aside from spices of course but who counts the spices? So what’s the three ingredients you wonder? Cannellini beans (also known as white beans), nutritional yeast and some tomato paste. Yup, that’s it. […]

Lightened Up Vegan Apple Crisp

  This is just another example as to why I cannot set up and follow a strict blog editorial calendar. I had every intention of sharing next week’s dinners and grocery shopping with you today but then my son got sick and stayed sick all week, which totally threw me off. Talking to him about dinner […]

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

  First day of school, first day of school! I have this old-fashioned way of thinking in that the first day of school should involve afternoon cookies with milk while unwinding in front of the television watching one of those ABC afterschool specials that haven’t been on since probably the late 1980’s. Or maybe some cookies […]

      Good morning. Actually, it’s a great morning –> the Islanders shut out the Rangers! I am just sitting here about to enjoy my usual pre-run breakfast. Sometimes I add blueberries and I always add peanut butter. My son is on an oatmeal kick too. I give him the LOVE GROWN Super Oats […]

Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies – Dairy Free

  Do you remember the first blog you ever read? I do. It was Peanut Butter Runner. I must have googled peanut butter and running or something to that effect and fell upon Jen’s blog which was right around three years ago. I have been a daily reader of Peanut Butter Runner ever since.  Peanut Butter Runner opened […]

Apple Peanut Butter Pie Hummus

  Now listen, I understand the point of recipes but I also understand that if never break free from following the directions, you will never explore your own abilities to learn what you are capable of creating on your own. I felt like whipping something up the other day. I didn’t know what, just had a basic idea […]

WIAW- Peanut Butter Cup Apple Bowls

  I spent Veteran’s Day re-organizing my son’s notebooks for school. Like really, I don’t even understand how or why his binders are such a disaster. I asked if he felt as though he was being raised in chaos and disorganization because his loose papers, missing pen caps, scattered pencil sharpening remnants and the need for reinforcements […]

WIAW – Butternut Squash & Baked Ziti Recipe

whole grain butternut squash baked ziti

  You know I have zero will power around roasted vegetables. I had no business roasting an entire butternut squash all at once on Sunday. Usually I roast a serving at a time because I have been known to polish roasted vegetables off as if they are a big bag of m&m’s on an extreme craving day. […]

Peach Salsa Guacamole

  I almost feel bad calling this a recipe. It’s more of a short cut than a recipe but whatever we want to call it, it is delicious, healthy and most importantly, appears really creative with very little effort or ingredients. Let’s not discuss that it is already Labor Day weekend. I don’t even understand […]

  I keep meaning to update my Vegetarian Meal Ideas post to show you how I don’t need to meal plan, I just need to have specific ingredients always on hand in order to whip up good food fast. One of my must-have pantry items is Organic Chick Peas. Chick Peas and Garbanzo Beans are the same thing. I […]
