Tortilla Hummus Rollups

It's summer! And we are moving into our new house this month 🙂 So for the time being, I will get to post once a week until we are settled - sorry there will be fewer posts, but I promise they will be fun! To start, here's a way to pull off dinner prep in… Continue reading Tortilla Hummus Rollups

Dried Fruit Polenta

Welcome sunlight! We are loving this spring, Ilian especially. The warm days let us breathe deep, play outside with friends, and feel alive 🙂 To invite some of the sun's rays onto our plates, we cooked a glowing, sweet, and filling side dish with just a few ingredients: polenta with dried fruit. Ilian liked adding… Continue reading Dried Fruit Polenta

Red Beet Potato Hash Browns

With leftover shredded red beets,… Continue reading Red Beet Potato Hash Browns

We also got to see geese, a crane, and all the various songbirds flying overhead as spring has truly arrived in our parts 🙂 To say… Continue reading Snowcap Bean Chili with Corn Wheels

Chipotle Mayo – Vegan and Soy-free

Vegan Mayo sans soy? Check. Husband in the kitchen? Check. Tasty results? Check! Ilian's dad is much better with the hot spices than I am, so when it comes to manly-ly burning hot pepper spices, I'm happy to hand over the kitchen counter to him. Today he created a truly fantastic chipotle mayo from Tuesday's… Continue reading Chipotle Mayo – Vegan and Soy-free
