Sautéed Garlic Lemon Kale With Pine Nuts

I love vegetables. Bell peppers, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes… they’re all so refreshing and delicious! There is one category of veggies I don’t eat too often though, and it just happens to be the most important: greens. Dark green leafy vegetables are great sources of nutrition, according to the USDA. They’re low calorie, yet packed with…

Spicy Sesame Peanut Noodles (Vegan/Gluten-Free)

Hello everyone! So much has happened since my last post, namely the coronavirus pandemic. Here in Ohio, we have been in quarantine since mid-March. It looks like I’ll be finishing my senior year of high school from home! Though this whole situation is quite scary, it’s also an opportunity to take a step back from…

Vegan Taiyaki (Japanese Fish Shaped Waffle)

Are you team pancakes or team waffles? I like pancakes for an everyday breakfast, but waffles are definitely my go-to for special occasions. They seem more like dessert to me, probably because of waffle cones for ice cream, plus the rise of Hong Kong-style bubble waffles in NYC. Speaking of which, what is with those…

Creamy Homemade Cashew Milk

  Have you noticed how much the dairy-free milk industry is growing lately? More and more Americans are buying vegan milk alternatives or ordering non-dairy options at their favorite coffee shop.

15 Minute Vegan Breakfast Tacos

Living in Ohio during the winter can get pretty gloomy. The complete lack of sunshine for months on end really starts to get to you after a while! Because of this, it’s really best for us Ohioans to plan a trip somewhere warm during the winter, just to keep us from going completely insane. This…

Rosemary Cornbread Muffins (Vegan/Gluten-Free)

I feel like cornbread is the underdog of side dishes. Many people favor biscuits or dinner rolls over cornbread, saying that cornbread is too dry and bland. However, I’d like to make an argument in favor of cornbread. When prepared correctly, it has a delicous buttery flavor, with just a hint of sweetness. Adding different…

Moroccan Spiced Roasted Baby Carrots

I love eating raw carrots, but I have always hated cooked carrots. They just always seem mushy and too sweet, especially the honey-glazed carrots that are served at Thanksgiving. Unless it’s dessert, I do not want any added sweetness in my foods. Marshmallows and brown sugar on sweet potatoes? Gross. Regular roasted sweet potatoes? Delicious!…
