Asian Chopped Salad Two Ways Vegan Friendly

  Soup and Salads are a staple for lunch and dinners. I feel you get the most bang for your buck with either. You can make a large amount and eat on all the chopping you did for a week! They can be super healthy or not, with or WITHOUT meat, travel friendly, easy, quick, […]

Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Homemade

When I was little my friends mom made everything from scratch, even ranch dressing. I was always in awe of Dee (nana) because I always thought my mom cooked from scratch until I watched nana in the kitchen. She was a full time mom so of course she had the time to do crafts, run […]

Turmeric Benefits and My Golden Ginger Tea Recipe

Its exotic flavor enhances sauces, stews, dressings, dessert and even drinks.

Cucumbers the Magical Pill

  Cucumbers I feel, are not given all the glory they deserve. They are so much more then fruit, disguised as a vegetable, salad topping, part of a crudités, eye patches in a facial or floating in drinking water at a fancy spa. Don’t get me wrong, I love all those applications for cucumbers and […]

Fluffy French Toast with Homemade Rhubarb Syrup

  Summer is finally here and for me that can only mean one thing, staying cool! Ok maybe not just one thing but staying cool is my main goal because hot heat is not my friend. Part of that plan is lots of fizzy water and fresh squeezed lime. I also cook with limes and […]

Spirulina Dark Chocolate Smoothie Superfood To Go!

  Smoothies are my main squeeze in the warmer months and I will admit I get stuck on the same ingredients often. This shake came out of laziness to fill veggie caps. Yes, I mix powerhouse plant powders and shove them into little gel caps for amazing supplements. It seems these days I have way […]

Banana Split Smoothie

    I don’t know about you but even the words banana split takes me back. They were the decadent dessert in our home growing up. Fresh strawberries at their peek, perfectly ripe bananas, neapolitan ice cream, hot fudge, caramel, whip cream nuts and cherries. That was my my favorite combo. I was not big […]
