The holiday season is upon us, and that means it’s time to get into the kitchen and whip up those age-old family recipes with a modern twist. Today I’m changing up a traditional holiday appetizer for a plant-based approach: Stuffed Mushrooms. These mushrooms trade in the usual breadcrumb or meat filling for a vegetarian and gluten-free option: Walnut Stuffed Mushrooms with Cheddar, Apple & Sage.

New-trition Goals for the New Year: Goal #4

Wow.  January is, like, over. Done. Bye Bye! One Bombcyclone, several below 10 degree days, a few podcast episodes in the can, and many nights of staying in to Netflix ‘N Chill with Mr E helped pass the cold days. For the final addition in my NEW-trition Goals for the New Year series, I wanted to address something that is definitely becoming as much of a food trend as it is a health and environmental matter. As I wrote about in my FNCE recap, plant-based protein is where it’s at this year. So, without further ado, I present to you NEW-trition Goal for the New Year #4: LEAN OUT THE MEAT

Bitchin’ Black Bean Burger

My Bitchin’ Black Bean Burger recipe was originally published January 12, 2015. Since that time this recipe has been featured in several media outlets, including Men’s Fitness. Given the popularity of this recipe (it’s one of the top visited pages on this site!) I decided to give the photos an update.

Some nights I feel like I’m on a Food Network challenge show: prepare a meal only using ingredients available in your fridge.  Today I had started a slow cooker project a little late in the day, and realized the dish wouldn’t be ready until 11pm.  So… it was on to Plan B.  I opened the fridge, hoping something would magically appear, when there they were, looking up at me.  Earlier in the week I had made dried black beans to have as a side dish, and was reminded that half a package makes a LOT of beans.  I had been wanting to explore a black bean burger recipe, so today was as good a day as ever.

Happy National Hummus Day! You’re just in time to celebrate.  If you’ve noticed your social media flooded with #NationalHummusDay tags, that’s because today, May 13, 2017, is the big day. And what better way to celebrate then with these Hummus Empanadas, which I am calling “Humpanadas”.

Happy Spring!  This month’s challenge for The Recipe Redux is “Spring Clean Your Fridge” in honor of the first day of spring.  I have a tendency to buy a lot of items in the grocery store with good intentions of using for recipe development.  Therefore I was thrilled with the recent challenge of ONLY using items currently available in my fridge and pantry.  I decided to give my usual lunch a makeover with a lunch bowl.  The lunchtime PRO Bowl is born!

Today we’re talking about one of the most misunderstood vegetables at the market.  The one everyone associates as a “bad” food.  The guy everyone shames in favor of their supposedly superior orange cousin.  That’s right – today I’m going to be setting the record straight on the POTATO.

Mr E and I have a lot of meal-time traditions we’ve established for ourselves over the years: ice cream date on Sunday nights in the summer, wine & cheese Fridays, Slow Cooker Snow Days, and my favorite weekend tradition: BRUNCH! I’m obsessed with brunch, mostly because the menu options are always such a great variety. Sweet, savory, veggies, and fruit – there’s a little something for any mood I’m feeling.  And a mimosa or bloody to accompany the meal is always welcome. A brunch staple  is eggs benny, but I have one issue – I’m not a huge hollandaise sauce fan.  Continue reading “Avocado Hollandaise Sauce”
