Portobello “Pizza”

BIG into mushrooms right now. I’ve always loved mushrooms – always ordered mushroom pizza as a kid – but now I was told that mushrooms boost immunity so they are extra on my radar when shopping. The farmer’s market had these GIANT portobello caps that were perfect for grilling – but I wanted something moreContinue reading “Portobello “Pizza””

Simple Arugula Salad

aka “The Pizza Salad” Why the nickname? I’m not sure where it started – when I think about it I think lovingly of Cecconi’s – but my girlfriends and I have this thing where we love eating cold salad on top of hot pizza. The salad is best when it’s made with arugula – becauseContinue reading “Simple Arugula Salad”

Georgia *Salad* on my Mind

When my husband told my he wanted to go to Georgia I was confused. It didn’t sound like the far off places he usually suggests. Except he meant Georgia – the COUNTRY – at the same time all our friends were going to Ibiza – so there was a slew of reasons why I wasContinue reading “Georgia *Salad* on my Mind”

Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

This dreary Monday called for a BRIGHT and beautiful recipe.

Vegan Chipotle Slaw

Serious coleslaw enthusiast here! I love it creamy, I love it tangy – it’s just a great vessel for raw cabbage that you can spice up in a variety of ways.

Grilled Radicchio Salad

Not going to lie, very much missing Via Carota right now. I love their grilled raddichio, amongst basically everything else of the menu. Theirs is definitely much oilier than this, but Via Carota can get away with that. Typing this I’m thinking I should find a way to re-create the griddled Scamorza so stay tuned.Continue reading “Grilled Radicchio Salad”

This is what happens when it’s almost dinner time, you want to add a starch to the table, you want to be delicious OF COURSE but you also want it to be QUICK and EASY.

Mushroom Lasagna

I make a mean meat lasagna, but my Father-in-Law isn’t eating meat and I wanted to treat him to something vegetarian and special. For me, mushrooms are an awesome substitute for meat. I believe the key to any great lasagna is the use of b├ęchamel sauce, so the game plan was to make a mushroomContinue reading “Mushroom Lasagna”
