Did I go on a tropical island getaway? No, not so much. Just another Saturday morning in snowy New Hampshire. Saturday mornings have become all about getting up to make a big breakfast, leaving the dishes for later, cuddling with the dog, catching up on Dexter, and not “officially” getting out of bed until noon. Now all I need is someone to come make this for me so, I don’t have to get up at all. Until then, here’s a quick recipe that won’t take away too much of your laze time and proves you don’t need dairy or eggs to have a delicious breakfast. What more can I say about french toast? Oh yeah: It’s freaking delicious!
Go ahead, have it with a mimosa. You deserve it. It’s the weekend

About a month ago, my wonderful newly vegan mother (I’ll never tire of saying that), in an effort to help with my cooking endeavors, cooked a massive amount of brown lentils. And then a few weeks after that, she bestowed me with an Asian sweet potato. Mothers. What would we do without them? Starve, probably. Anyway, since then, I’ve been saving lentils in my freezer not exactly knowing what to do with them. Since I’ve never been a fan of lentil soup, I thought that would certainly be out. But then it occurred to me, that the reason I’ve never liked lentil soup wasn’t because I didn’t like lentils, the flavors just never appealed to me. So, I decided to get creative and play with the flavor of my favorite cuisine, curry, and this is what came of it! Continue reading
Look Ma, no eggs! That’s right. It’s another quiche recipe, this one is bigger and more badass than a mini quiche can ever hope to be. I’ve got way more things going on this week than there is time in a day so, I have to make sure my mind doesn’t wander to the kitchen when it should be studying. Solution? Make a massive quiche and eat quiche for dinner all week. Why the heck not? While most young whipper snapper college students are eating pizza, I’m the old lady who’s enjoying a delicious quiche because “it’s kind of like pizza.” And it is, except it’s a lot healthier.
Anyway, here’s a tasty, savory, eggless dish that’s sure to make your life a lot easier and your dinner guests amazed that it you could accomplish a quiche without eggs. Quiche is not only time efficient and delicious, it’s flexible too! Add whatever vegetables you want, or omit the ones you can’t stand. The crust recipe is arranged, but adapted from the Healthy Happy Life blog. My only issue with this recipe is that the crust isn’t as soft as I would like it to be. I used sorghum flour which can be pretty rough stuff once it’s baked, but softens up nicely over time (read: leftovers). Even if you have a gluten allergy, I recommend using other flours (bean or oat will probably be fine). Continue reading
