Vegan Orange Cupcakes

Vegan Orange Cupcakes

For the longest time, I searched for an orange cake that was as bright and citrusy as I thought an orange cake should be. 4 years ago, I finally found it. These orange cupcakes (or muffins – call them what you will) are loaded with […]

Mexican Soup

Mexican Soup

I’ve been making some version of this Mexican Soup for almost 15 years now. It’s easy, inexpensive, healthy, and satisfying – and the perfect thing to make from leftovers, too! I call this “Mexican Soup,” but it’s rather inauthentic. It’s loosely based on tortilla soup, […]

Corn and Green Bean Salad with Lime

Corn and Green Bean Salad with Lime

I don’t write a lot about vegetables. I’m clearly more of a sweets person. But this bright, flavorful Corn and Green Bean Salad with Lime is too good not to share with you. We love it. It’s a warm, all-vegetable salad, made mainly from frozen […]

Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew

Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew

This recipe isn’t particularly seasonal. Sweet potatoes are a fall vegetable, right? But then again, with the unseasonably cool weather New Jersey keeps having, a warming Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew sounds pretty hot right now. This thick and creamy pureed stew is warm and […]

Slow Cooker Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup

This Slow Cooker Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup is a delicious and easy vegetarian meal. It’s been too long since I made it, and I’m so glad I tried it again! I originally wrote about this recipe in 2010 – it was #337 of my […]

Roasted Chickpeas and Sweet Potatoes with Tahini (Sesame) Sauce

This delicious recipe for roasted chickpeas and sweet potatoes is one of my favorite vegetarian recipes. It’s bright and hearty. Since everything cooks in the oven, it’s perfect for warming your house in the winter. We can all use more go-to vegetarian dinners, can’t we? […]

Sesame Noodles

Sesame Noodles

Honestly, I’m in a cooking rut. For every delicious dessert I write about (and I don’t even write about those frequently nowadays), there’s several evenings’ worth of dinner that I’m not interested in cooking. I can’t make a weekly dinner plan to save my life […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites

Some people adore the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, all the time. I’m not one of them. I only like it sometimes, when I’m in the right mood for it. But once I’m in the mood for chocolate peanut butter, like these chocolate peanut […]

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Lentil Soup with Lemon

I want to like lentils. They’re inexpensive, healthy, and quicker to cook than any beans around because you don’t have to soak them. I don’t use them often in part because I don’t know what to put them in. I’ve only made a few lentil […]

Chickpeas with Spinach

Chickpeas with Spinach

This recipe, Chickpeas with Spinach, has been one of my favorite quick meals to make recently. Originally an appetizer, I decided it looked substantial enough for a meal. I felt the same way about the version of it I made several years ago, too. That […]
