In looking for something for today’s post I drew inspiration from Chris at www.caribbeanpot.com. Although he sometimes features vegetarian recipes, his website is definitely a carnivore food blog. However, I find a lot of his dishes are easy to customize for a vegan diet. Last week his Caribbean tuna sandwich gave me instant hunger pangs. I vowed to make it for lunch one day soon. It was definitely worth the wait. Continue reading
Happy New Year! I initially planned to start this year’s post with the obligatory black eyed peas recipe but I forgot to purchase black eyed peas when I went grocery shopping. Perhaps I will get around to posting that recipe soon. Anyway, one thing I want to do most this year is be more efficient with my time. I am examining all the areas in my life where I can manage my time more effectively and leave myself open to do more of the things that hold my interest. One of the areas I want to implement this goal is by planning ahead for my week with meal plans, easy recipes, and etc… Also, I want to make the most of the food I have on hand. That is how this Orzo Salad came about. It is quick, easy, and delicious. Click here to find out the recipe. 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.
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.
