Vegan Breakfast Enchiladas

Vegan breakfast enchiladas! A delicious, savory vegan breakfast recipe that's so good, even "tofu haters" won't care. Recipe on

My easy vegan breakfast enchiladas are a perfect savory vegan weekend brunch or breakfast for dinner recipe. They’re easy to make, and it’s a recipe even omnivores will enjoy! The first words out of the Godfather’s mouth when he tried these vegan breakfast enchiladas were, “are you sure these are vegan?”. This recipe is that good. I’ve been thinking a lot about breakfast recently – it is my favorite meal…

A croque monsieur waffle sandwich is a great dish to serve at brunch, lunch, or dinner!  How much do you need a waffle sandwich in your life? Very much.

Fresh Turmeric Mushroom Curry

Fresh Turmeric Mushroom Curry Recipe - Vegan, clean eating, but really flavorful and loaded with good for you ingredients! *

Fresh spices like ginger and turmeric make this fresh turmeric mushroom curry a flavorful, vegan, comfort dish with warming Indian flavors. I can’t believe I hadn’t cooked with fresh turmeric until this year! It’s embarrassing really, and now that I’ve started cooking with fresh turmeric, I don’t think I can ever return to using just the jarred stuff (although I still use it too). I had heard about fresh turmeric…

Easy Stuffed Eggplants

A family recipe I love! Eggplants stuffed with a savory rice and meat mixture are easy to make and make a beautiful dinner presentation.

Growing up, I knew this dish as a way my mother and grandmother would use leftover stuffed grape leaves filling. Even though we always made two large jars of leaves, we would inevitably have extra rice, and so a large eggplant would be boiled or roasted whole to soften, the insides would be scooped out to make baba ganoush, and we’d fill the middle with the rice mixture and cook…

Rahmschnitzel – German Schnitzel with Mushroom Cream Sauce

An authentic German recipe for Rahmschnitzel - schnitzel with a from scratch mushroom cream sauce.

I was raised better, but I swear I lick the plate every single time I make this dish and I have no shame. The mushroom cream sauce alone is that good, and since we first tried this at a delicious German restaurant in Colorado Springs last summer, I’ve had to make it several times at home, especially in October as a mini-Oktoberfest celebration food. …

Cedar Plank Salmon

Individual cedar planks are an elegant way to prepare and plate salmon, and easier to make than you'd think! Recipe on

I think the Godfather has made up for the time spent away from his grill last year, this summer.

Seeing his passion for barbecue and trying new techniques are recipes has been something beautiful to watch because I think…

This fall, we are planning our first “with a kid” trip to Walt Disney World, and I’m excited. I’m looking forward to experiencing the parks through new eyes and doing some of the kid things the Godfather and I skipped on our previous trips.
