While the boys were on break during the holidays we got really into kale. My older one prefers his steamed and tops it with umeboshi vinegar and toasted sesame oil. The little one, however, joins us in eating my raw kale concoctions.
These raw salads are super healthy, crunchy and quite delicious. We are hooked on them.
This dish is quick and easy. I got the idea for it the other day when my friend Martha said she had roasted eggplant with tomatoes and olives at a holiday party. It sounded delectable and I was off to the races.
I think any kind of olives would work well in this delicious roasted vegetable dish. Enjoy!
This dish is based on a recipe in One Bite at a Time; a book that was recommended to me by Bev at Pesticide Action Network. I spread it on crackers and use it as a dip for fresh veggies. It’s creamy, delicious and full of fresh healthy herbs.
During the weekends when things are a little slower in my home, I have been making meals with several veggie side dishes. This Cabbage Orange Salad is one of our favorites. Easy to make, full of satisfying flavors and a burst of gorgeous color, it’s the perfect dish for any winter table.
This is a do it yourself sparkling fruit drink you can make in a snap for your friends and family this New Years Eve.

I was determined to make a vegan custard, not the easiest thing since custard is basically made of eggs; After a bit of research I came upon this quick and easy no cook recipe which provided the inspiration for my custard base. I am quite intrigued with this no fuss method of making custard and look forward to using it for many other flavor variations.
