Vegan Bacon & Brussels Pizza – Untraditional Thanksgiving Meal

I know I owe you a blog about my yoga teacher training with Trimurti. But first I wanted to share this awesome pizza my friend Nanette and I made on the fly! You can watch the video here. Since I was making this up as I went the ingredients are totally estimates. I think you’ll find if I’m close to correct it will be very delicious! You know nutritional yeast is magical stuff right? It makes everything taste better. You’ll need a store-bought pizza crust or make your own about 10-12 inches in diameter.… Read more

Review: Mouthwatering Vegan and Eggplant, Potato, Chickpea Curry

When I first received the Mouthwatering Vegan cookbook I thought to myself, “this book is huge!!”. As I flipped through it’s pages I began to drool.

Red Quinoa Sushi with Purple Asparagus

May Cooking By Color – Purple/Blue I have finally broken by cooking video dry spell!! I do apologize for taking so long. It turns out my new kitchen is a great place to do videos but I’m still figuring out the lighting situation. My dad gave me a tripod but the head piece was missing and I’m waiting for that to come in the mail. Thankfully a few cookbooks worked to prop up the camera! If you’ve been reading I let you know a few weeks ago that posts were going to slow down because I wasn’t in the kitchen creating exciting recipes because of my training schedule.… Read more

But I promise to have you some delicious Cooking By Color recipes soon! Until then enjoy this guest post using eggplant (which I have a love/hate relationship with 😉 Roasted Walnut & Eggplant Boats by Macaroon When I was in the 8th grade, purple was my “signature” color.… Read more
