Mashed Turnips

My family has been making this side dish for Thanksgiving for as long as I can remember. It takes a few hours in a large pot on the stove, but the heavenly root vegetable smell is now a festive holiday scent to me. This is a great side dish for any winter holiday meal–and it’s […]

Eggplant Mozzarella

So it was my birthday a short while ago, around Thanksgiving, and I am officially 21. Finally. I’m proud to say I’ve been to my first bar and had my first legal drink (a fuzzy navel!), though I’m sure the brilliance of it all will fade quickly. But since my birthday was the day before […]

Shrimp and Spinach Bake

Original recipe by Gluten-Free Goddess. This disappeared super fast the night I made it. Probably because it was so good. A word to the wise: the more vegan cheese and spinach you use, the more your taste buds will thank you. This is super quick to throw together. Tip: If you want a short cut […]

Artichoke and Greens Stew

I am a very big fan of artichokes. In a stew, in a soup, in a salad, on a sandwich, baked and cheesy… The list is long. They are simply delicious. Especially in a soup like this. The chard adds some color (especially if you use rainbow), the paprika gives a warm spicy flavor and […]

Cheesy Zucchini Tomato Basil Bake

The original recipe is by Gluten Free For Good, who was inspired by Vegetarian Times Magazine. I adapted the recipe to vegan standards. I know we’re well into autumn right now. In fact, November is one of my favorite months (mostly because of Thanksgiving and my birthday). So why am I making this late summer […]

Apple Crisp

This recipe is a variation of Gluten-Free Goddess’ Easy Apple and Pear Crisp. Crisps are super easy (and no tricky pie crusts involved!) I love the fall apples in this one, and the lovely cinnamon-y smell that filled my apartment as it baked was very festive. photo from Z Photo Blog Ingredients For the fruit […]
