It takes a lot for John and I to fall hardcore in love with a new restaurant, but the minute I dipped one french fry into the whiskey bbq ketchup at Beer Kitchen in Kansas City, it was all over. It had to be made at home.
Just when I thought red pasta couldn't get any better, I discovered the magic that is roasted red peppers.
Creamy, velvety, savory, and subtly sweet, it makes the perfect flavor companion to vegan parmesan and fresh herbs in this 10-ingredient Vegan and Gluten Free pasta. ... Read More →
Today, I turn 28.
Of the many things I've learned I realize the bulk of those lessons have come in the last couple of years.
I've learned to trust my instincts and be OK with the unconventional. I've learned the importance of doing what I love even if it feels silly. I've grown to love food photography even more than I did when we first started this blog. I've learned that running a food ... Read More →

I don't remember exactly this happened for me, but it was one of the best decisions I've made in the kitchen. I used to live on jarred pasta sauces (and vending machine food) in my college years, so I was elated and pleasantly surprised to learn how easy it is to make it ... Read More →
To blizzard or not to blizzard, that is not the question.
The question is: Which flavor blizzard to make?
Last week I put out a little SOS vote on Instagram asking what flavor I should make: Chocolate or banana cream pie.
A ton of you banana lovers spoke up, but you couldn't drown out the cries of the chocolate lovers. So, chocolate it was! But not to worry because I also made a banana ... Read More →
If you're vegan, I'll take a wild guess that eggs were one of the last things you struggled to give up. That and ice cream.
Although I'm not 100% vegan, I do eat a mostly animal-free diet and I'd like to continue finding ways to fuel and satisfy my body on a plant-based diet. ... Read More →
