Miso Soup with Bok Choy, Shiitake Mushrooms & Buckwheat Soba Noodles

Miso Soup with Bok Choy, Shiitake Mushrooms & Buckwheat Soba Noodles

Last week while in Austin for SXSW, I had miso soup at a random sushi restaurant. Nothing fancy, just the basic broth with tofu and scallions, but damn, it was good. It’s not like it was my first time ever having miso soup, but I’ve been craving it for […]

Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

A lot has changed in the last year of my life; I graduated from college, got my first job, moved away from home (halfway across the country), leased my first apartment with my boyfriend, and ate and photographed my way through far too many smoothie bowls. […]

Vegan Dip Trio

Vegan Dip Trio

We often have 10+ people in the house (there are always friends & extra extended family members hanging around, because we’re just so cool and they love being around us 😉 ), which means we always have to be ready to make extra food. We […]

Mardi Gras Cheesecake

Mardi Gras Cheesecake

Hi from New Orleans! My husband and I are visiting our friends, Jeanne and David, and we’re here for Mardi Gras for the first time. While here, we’re going to nighttime parades, daytime parades, a costume ball, and a dressy ball! We’re getting the entire […]

Hearty Vegetable Chili

Hearty Vegetable Chili

It’s time for another Super Bowl Sunday! I’ve personally never been a big fan of the game, BUT the food, the halftime entertainment, and the commercials make it a bit more fun! Since we live in the midwest, we usually gravitate towards a warm, hearty chili […]

Four Ingredient Vegan Caramel Sauce

Today is my grandpa’s 78th birthday, so it seemed fitting to honor him with his favorite treat, homemade caramel! Back in the days of dairy and butter, we made homemade caramels with grandpa every Christmas; it’s still one of my fondest family memories! This is one […]

Papaya Passion Smoothie Bowl

Papaya Passion Smoothie Bowl

It is that time of winter when we’re just feeling the need for a touch of warm weather and something tropical!  Since we live in Michigan and NY, sadly I don’t see that happening (unless we are taking a little vacation!) A tropical smoothie bowl will thankfully […]

Creamy Golden Mac & Cheeze

Creamy Golden Mac & Cheeze

Mac and cheese has always been a family favorite in our house. Grandma’s version was loaded with four types of cheese, heavy cream, breadcrumbs, butter, and essentially the polar opposite of anything we eat nowadays. We really wanted to recreate a vegan version of this […]

Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies with Caramel Filling

Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies with Caramel Filling

Every since I was a little girl, I’ve always loved to bake. I first learned from my Grandma Nickels, which has now been passed onto Lexi. Lexi shares her middle name, Margaret, because I wanted her to share a part of this very special woman in my life!  […]
