Vegan Scalloped Potatoes

I love this vegan scalloped potatoes recipe! My favorite thing about it is . . . well, the taste. But my second favorite thing about it is that it’s a base recipe. The base recipe is delicious, don’t get me wrong. But every time you make it, you can try something new. You make a […]

Roasted Vegetable Salad with Lemon Basil Dressing

In the fall and winter, I love warm salads, like this roasted vegetable salad. There’s something about eating five veggies in one dish that just feels like a nice nutrient bomb (because it is!).

Warm Asparagus Walnut Salad with Lemon Dill Dressing

Cranberry Arugula Pasta Salad with Lemon & Pine Nuts

I love this cranberry arugula pasta salad! It’s fresh and light and so tasty.┬áThe flavors of the cranberries and lemon juice are sweet and tart, nicely blending with the olive oil and pine nuts. The arugula and farfalle (bow tie pasta) add a nice texture and color. The salad is so pretty! This recipe from […]
