Here’s a simple, easy, and delicious food hack I discovered. I used Ancient Harvest Quinoa Pasta and followed the directions on the box, then added a few bits to enhance the flavor. I love Ancient Harvest because it's gluten-free and non-GMO. I'm not gluten-free, but I do believe in limiting your gluten intake. Too much of a good thing exists whether we want to admit it or not.
I know for me I'm a lot more likely to follow a recipe if I have the complete instructions in one place, so here you go. You're welcome.Read More
I'm not a fan of following recipes, I'm also not a fan of the usual. I like to create new combinations that fit my lifestyle (veggie) and preference, and sometimes that means grabbing some ingredients from the kitchen and seeing what happens! I decided to do just that this weekend, and this is what I came up with... perfection! Sorry, but I am bragging this time. It was amazing, and now you can make it, too!Read More
This is the simplest fruit salad, and it's delicious! First thing is a tip for keeping apples and pears looking fresh. Brown apple or pear slices can ruin a beautiful fruit salad, so I use lemon juice to keep my apple and pear slices looking fresh and crisp! What you'll need is a large bowl, water, and fresh lemon(s) (depending on how many apples you're cutting). I used a whole lemon for 1 apples and 1 pear, and I squeezed the juice into the bowl and dipped each slice into the lemon juice. Then I filled a large bowl with water and poured the remaining lemon juice into the bowl and placed all the slices into the water to keep them fresh while I prepare the rest of the salad.Read More
I think we've all been there. We bought a container of cherry tomatoes and somehow the dangerous geography of our refrigerators consumed it. We stumble upon it a week or so later and realize we wasted $3 on an item we REALLY want right now for this half-made salad. I know this has happened to me. I've even bought a second container of cherry tomatoes to discover I already have half of one. This can also produce rotting tomatoes that strike fear into the hearts of many. Now by rotting I don't mean covered in mold, but what I do mean is raisin-like little cherry tomato staring at you with a victorious look of "I never made it into your intestines! I win!" You know exactly what I'm talking about, and if you don't there's a picture below with an arrow and everything. Well, have no fear because this shall never happen again! Unless of course you leave it in there and mold starts to form, that's when you throw them out, curse your $3 and move on with your life. Maybe go give $3 to a charity for starving children. In fact, that's a good idea. If you let your tomatoes go to the point of no return, your punishment (and only way you'll be able to live with yourself- I'm shaming you) will be to go give $3 to a charity. I'm going to do this as well.
Oh, why isn't this happening again? Well, you're going to sharpen your knife, cut those puppies in half, and roast them. Yep, roast 'em!Read More
This is one of the easiest most delicious recipes, ever! It literally consists of four ingredients, and takes only 15 minutes total to make!
WHAT YOU'LL NEED TO GET STARTED
1. Mixing Bowl
3. Or just an awesome KitchenAid mixer which I can now say I have (didn't have one at the time of the photos)!
Hummus is always delicious, and a few years back I started using a recipe (which I've since adjusted to my taste), and I wanted to share it with you. It's extremely easy, and often tastes better than store bought hummus, plus it's healthier with a simple list of ingredients.Read More
