Easy Shakshuka Baked Eggs

Easiest dinner ever alert!  This is what I make when I have a nearly empty pantry and no time.  And you know the best part, its actually GOOD!  Seriously, 15 minutes and dinner is on the table.  I’m not one to complain about that. A can of tomatoes, a splash of olive oil, smashed garlic cloves, some chopped shallot or onion, salt, pepper, saffron threads if you have them, and any random veggies like celery or carrots are the saucy liquid you poach the eggs in.  After it bakes, top it with some parsley, cilantro, or even basil and DIG IN! Just how you “dig in” is up to you!…

Brioche Knot Dinner Rolls

When this posts, we will be on our way back from 5 very cold but amazing days in Alaska. We will come back to our little bungalow, a much warmer city, and these two goofballs. June and George.  They are both miniature Australian shepherds, and June (on the right) has been my partner in crime since before any of the rest of the crazy clan, including the husband.  She is as spunky and sweet as she is lounge-y and sassy.  She is quite possibly a dog version of myself.  The one syllable nature of her name lends itself to many nickname iterations… Junior, Junie-girl, Junie-bop, Junie-spoony, and, my personal favorite,…

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]

Winter Vegetable Stew

For the past few years, Seattle forgot it was winter, which apparently means we are making up for it double time year.  Running in the morning, when its in the teens has given me a new appreciation for all you cold weather climate people!  When its 15 degrees and I am navigating my determined-to-run-despite-the-ice self down a hill, it feels a bit like mother nature is smashing my frozen knobby knees with a hammer.  I spent many years in Alaska, so I am no stranger to cold weather. But, here in Seattle, we rarely get extended cold snaps like this.  I simultaneously love it and hate it!  Ya’ll, I even bought…
