Whole Wheat Irish Soda Bread Recipe

I first fell in love with Irish soda bread when I was, as you might guess, in Ireland. Back when I was teaching English in Prague in 2009, I spent a long weekend in Ireland with a friend and fellow teacher, Jackie. The two of us had a wonderful time, staying in cute little B&Bs and exploring the beautiful countryside and small towns. Continue Reading …

Sweet Potato & Lentil Coconut Curry

I always feel really awkward writing recipe posts. I mean, how many ways can you say something is delicious? I guess it’s just easier for me to wax poetic about my runs and beautiful scenery than it is to describe a recipe. ;) But for real, friends: this really was delicious. Introducing a new favorite: Sweet Potato Lentil Coconut Curry! It’s vegan Continue Reading …

A Homemade Vegan Feast

On Tuesday evening, I was reunited with my friend Gena!

I missed her so! Continue Reading …

Sweet Potato Black Bean Quinoa Salad

As you guys know, I’m not really into recipes that take longer than about 15 minutes to prepare.

One of my main contributions to our Thanksgiving feast this year was a delicious vegan Quinoa Salad with pecans and cranberries. This dish first made its debut at our wedding!

Vegan Butternut Squash & Garlicky Kale Lasagna

On Tuesday night, my friend Gena treated me to a delicious dinner at her place! Gena and I are so busy (her working on a post-bacc and studying for the MCAT; me with grad school and dietetic internships, plus our blogs) that we usually plan our hang out sessions months ahead of time – but hanging out with her is always well worth the wait. I’m Continue Reading …

Roasted Eggplant & Red Pepper Quinoa + Apple Kale Salad

Morning! I had another fun “ingredient potluck” dinner last night with my blogger buddy Gena! I’m loving these dinner dates — we get to catch up and enjoy each other’s company and a delicious, wholesome meal, but without spending money (and with the added bonus of clearing out the random odds and ends in our fridges). Perfect! Like last time, Continue Reading …
