I know it has been a while since I last blogged. Work has been chaotic to say the least. Anyway let me move on to today’s recipe. I made spaghetti squash ramen noodle style. I don’t know if many of you are familiar with ramen noodles. The highly processed noodles that come with a high sodium packet of msg flavoring. They aren’t particularly good but they are quick and affordable which makes them the go to meal of choice for college students and people on a budget. Well I figured out a way to have healthier version of these noodles. I am begging your pardon in advance regarding pictures. I managed to snag a couple of photos with my phone before scarfing down everything on my lunch break. For the recipe click here. Continue reading
Once again the weekend is here and I had a craving for pizza. Only, I wanted to have something more gourmet in flavor and less processed. Well as the saying goes, “When you want something done right, do it yourself”. So I made my pizza from scratch starting from the dough to the sauce. The only way this would have been better is if I grew the toppings myself…LOL Anyway, this pizza was a labor of love so if you are going to attempt to make it be prepared to devote an hour or two to the process. If you want to save time by using a ready made dough and a jar sauce feel free to do so. I am all for whatever works. To find out this delicious recipe, click here.
I remember when I was growing up how my mother used to force me to eat my oatmeal before going to school. I never liked oatmeal as a child and truth be told I don’t like it too much now that I am an adult. However, I realize that it is one of those good for you foods. So in keeping with my mother’s ways, I am still forcing myself to eat oatmeal in the morning. Only it is much easier to eat now because I add things to my oatmeal that make it much more palatable. Surprisingly oatmeal is a very versatile dish. It can be savory or sweet depending on the ingredients you add to it. If you want to know how I reinvented my oatmeal, click here to find out more.

Okay, so this isn’t macaroni. I prefer to only use whole wheat pasta but I was unable to locate some in the store. Which means I ended up making Fusilli pasta and cheese instead. But no worries. This is a quick meal that is comforting and easy to make. It is great for when the weather is dreary outside and you just want to stay home to indulge in this dish while wearing comfortable clothes. It is Memorial Day weekend but instead of the typical hot weather it is cool and dreary outside. In my book, weather like this calls for comfort food. Click here to find out the recipe.

I still had an additional package of chickpeas left over from Virtual Vegan Potluck. I already made tuna and hummus out of chickpeas so what is left? Curried chickpeas and kale of course! This in my opinion is one of those build-able dishes. You can add potatoes and turn it into a filling for roti (ie: dosas) or you can add it to rice and wrap it in a collard leaf for a unique tasting burrito. The possibilities are just about endless.
