A Heaping TBSP of Life


~ presenting a slightly currated collection of all things edible ~

Soy Free

Turkish Chili

Turkish Chili

First off, calling this Turkish is probably a bit of a stretch to be honest. But we’re not going to get into that! As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, one of the hardest parts for me in a vegetarian/vegan diet is getting enough protein and iron. […]

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Is it too late for one more festive cookie recipe?? I’m going to say no! I didn’t bake half as many treats as I normally do this year – life has just been crazy – but I did find time to make a few tried […]

Kimchi Pancake (kimchijeon)

Kimchi Pancake (kimchijeon)

Lately I’ve been getting the urge more and more to try NEW dishes. Foods that I quite honestly have been scared to make for a very long time. More Vietnamese and Korean and Indian food, perfect french baguettes, deep dish pizza. I’ve started using several […]

Funfetti Cupcakes

Funfetti Cupcakes

The other day I was mindlessly pushing my cart down the baking isle at Cub Foods eyeballing the instant puddings and cake mixes that look soooo good  that I also know I’ll never buy (this is a regular occurrence for me).  I used to indulge […]

Pickled Red Onions

Pickled Red Onions

Although burger season is officially over (sad face) I’ve still been making us delicious veggie burgers inside on my cast iron pan.  The best part of cooking burgers inside is that it saves so much time, I can focus more on whipping up unique and […]

Spiced Nuts

Spiced Nuts

One of my favorite ways to class up a centerpiece is by turning it into a big bowl of something festive and edible.During the holidays, sweets are every where: the office, the convenience stores, well-meaning friends and family. It can be hard to say no […]

Dairy Free Chocolate Puddings

Dairy Free Chocolate Puddings

I haven’t made chocolate pudding in ages.  Not because I don’t like it (I freaking love the stuff) and not because I don’t have time (it literally takes 10mn) but honestly because I know that it requires milk and occasionally butter, and I don’t stock […]

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

When I first set out to make a chocolate chip cookie that my son could eat, I wasn’t actually looking to make it vegan, just dairy and soy free.  I cut out the butter and replaced it with a blend of Earth Balance Soy Free […]

Green Ribbon Salad

Green Ribbon Salad

When the days are long and hot, and the veggies are all starting to ripen, there’s no better way to use up nature’s bounty than in massive salads.  They consist of relatively little prep time, zero oven time, and, with a little planning, can look […]

Chocolate Lava Cakes

Chocolate Lava Cakes

The other night I had the strongest craving for chocolate.  Like I’m talking, super intense.  I didn’t just want any chocolate either, I wanted melt-in-your-mouth, ooey, gooey, sinfully delicious chocolate lava cakes! And thankfully, I have a go-to recipe that can make that exact thing, […]
