Vegan Pad See Ew

Ok, Thai take-out may be convenient.  But, so is this homemade pad see ew!!  You can have dinner on the table in under 20 minutes!  (Plus, this version can be made vegan and gluten free.) You guys, pad see ew is my favorite Thai noodle dish.  Phad Thai may get all the hype, but pad see ew is where its at, folks.  Pad see ew uses a wide rice noodles that soak up a soy forward sauce with broccoli (or chinese broccoli, if you can find it!).  Topped with some chopped radish or bean sprouts for crunch and some roasted peanuts and green onions. Who doesn’t love a super speedy,…

Vegan Tikka Masala

I love indian food you guys.  Middle eastern food.  And mediterranean food.  Favorite foods ever!! Tikka masala is always a big comforting bowl of delicious goodness!  But, with all that cream, it is soo rich that I feel the need to waddle around for the rest of the evening.  This one is vegan friendly and made with coconut milk, veggies, potatoes, and chickpeas!  It has all of the hearty, flavor packed, creamy, and satisfying flavors without the need to waddle away from the table! Possibly, the most hearty and comforting bowl I have consumed all winter.  And, I made it in under and hour on a weeknight. [amd-yrecipe-recipe:115]

Roasted Chicken Gabriella

If you grew up in an Italian family, you are probably familiar with Chicken Gabriella (or Gabrielle).  Its the one where the onions, lemon, and chicken legs and thighs are cooked in a skillet with white wine and thyme or rosemary until the onions are super soft and the chicken is almost falling off the bone. The whole kitchen smells herby, lemony, and amazing.  Then the chicken and onions mixture is spooned over the top of rice for the most aromatic chicken dish pretty much ever, and when you dig in, it feels like a warm hug.  Do you remember now? I love the flavors in Chicken Gabriella.  So so…

Pork Tenderloin Roast with Apples

Ok. In truth, making dinner every night can feel like a chore.  On occasion, I have moments entire weeks when, I really just want to make eggs or a veggie scramble and call it a day.  Of course by “on occasion,” I really am referring to most of December.  The parties we went to in Demember meant a lot of baking.  And after baking all day, making dinner sounds about as much fun as being on an airplane next to a screaming child.  I’m not a big fan of screaming children, if you can’t tell. But, since, its new years, I’m clearing out the cobwebs of my brain and remembering some…

Vegetarian Faux Pho

New year?  New start?  It sounds so strange to my ears to say this in January.  After years in school and working in industries where our fiscal calendar followed suit, it felt like the “new year” commenced in September.  Declaring the a fresh start and a new year in January still feels a bit arbitrary.  Maybe thats why I correct myself when writing the date for so long after a new calendar year begins.  January/September or otherwise, everyone loves feeling like they can have a fresh start. I was reading a book recently about correcting and shaping behaviors of children with complex backgrounds.  The author was talking about offering “do-overs,”…
