Vegetarian Enchiladas Verdes

Hello everyone, hope you all are having a great weekend!  Our town’s classic car show is happening today.  The city is hopping with cool cars, packed restaurants, and tons of out-of-towners!   Every year, I stay true to form as a Mini Cooper driver and end up casting my vote for one of the classic Minis. The car show is great exposure for local businesses, a parking nightmare for locals, and a very welcome trip back in time!  I felt out of place in my boring old t-shirt and shorts.  It seems like I should have been wearing saddle shoes and poodle skirts, and a side ponytail.  Too much?  Ok, at…

Polenta Budino with Stone Fruit Compote

It’s stone fruit week here on the blog! Last week, I kicked off the party with my absolute favorite Peach Cobbler ever!  This week we are keeping things rolling with more stone fruit recipes!  My goal for the week is to highlight how many different options you have with stone fruits that are not cobblers and crisps.  Also, I hope to demonstrate the interchangeability of stone fruits in almost all recipes!  Today’s recipe can be made with whatever stone fruit is fresh and ripe where you live.  Plums, peaches, nectarines, and apricots are all great options! Which brings us to this delicious creamy, fruity goodness… Polenta Budino with Stone Fruit…

Vegan No-Churn Mexican Chocolate Ice-Cream

In life, there are things that I settle for out of convenience.  The picnic thrown with paper plates and disposable silverware…. The box of Meringues from Trader Joe’s I buy to avoid making something something gluten free for my gluten intolerant friend…  I’m too tired to make dinner so we get take-out.  In most cases, I know these aren’t whats best for me or are even harmful to the environment.  Often, they aren’t the aren’t even tastiest option. But if I look at my habits, the one thing I repeatedly buy out of convenience is ice-cream.  Yes, ice-cream – including store bought ice-cream – is absolutely delicious.  I know!  And…

Spiralized Kohlrabi and Apple Salad with Poppyseed Honey Mustard Dressing

Kohlrabi is one of the more curious looking farmer’s market finds.  Its bulbous, broccoli stem textured head, and crazy looking leaves that sprout upwards like a wild ponytail make it reminiscent of a Sesame Street or Veggie Tales style character.  Except that its not a character, its actually that adorable. Not sure what kohlrabi is? In case you haven’t tried it yet, the tasted is like a pepperier version of a broccoli stem.  Think about a flavor somewhere between fennel and arugula.  You can eat it a number of ways.  The most basic would be to slice it up like a carrot stick and enjoy it with hummus.  Or you…

Grilled or Baked Chicken Wings

Chicken is fast, cheap, easy, and enjoyed by pretty much all omnivorous humans.  Right?  There are so many chicken variations that it will make your head spin.  Every culture has put their own stamp on a signature chicken dish.  Every home cook has their go-to never-fail chicken recipe.  Its so versatile and small enough in size to be a diet staple.  But truly, when was the last time you ate a chicken dish that was out of the ordinary?  In all honestly, I can think of one lemon mediterranean chicken dish a couple years back that I had some bites of off my sister’s plate.  That was outstanding.  But in…
