8 Angle Tutorial and Mini Flow

I remember when I first started tinkering around with yoga I thought 8 angle was the coolest pose ever. However, I could not for the life of me figure out how yogis with that ability twisted themselves into that! And then I found a random tutorial on YouTube and it changed my life. So I…

Hearty Steak and Kale Salad

So there I was <again> at lunch time. Staring a whole bunch of steak and veggie leftovers from Kabob night in my fridge. I didn’t just want to eat them plain. I wanted a salad. But not just any salad. A nice and hearty one. With hearty greens and a thick, yet nutritive dressing. And…

Pigeon Switch Transition

I thought this was a little clever and kinda fun all at the same time; made me smile and it made me think. Yoga for your body and your brain. I like deepening the ol’ mind body connection that way. You have to concentrate to get the wind/unwind right, or you might end up tripping…

No Bake Cookie Makeover

Ok. Do y’all remember those cookies you made with your mom over the stove and they didn’t require baking and it totally blew your mind? Or at least it blew my mind. They were so GOOD! Chocolate (y), Peanut Butter(y) and melt in your mouth(y). So many fond memories. I decided to make them with…

Easy Crustless Roast Vegetable Quiche

Black Bean Pumpkin Plantain Enchiladas

It’s a mouthful of deliciousness. A little spicy. A little savory. A little sweet. A little creamy. A little Tex-Mex. A lotta Delicious. This is most definitely Minimalist Baker inspired! I had made her Black Bean Plantain enchiladas and absolutely fell in love! So I set out to make them again and had zero cashews…

Spring Rolls!

So it’s finally feeling spring(y) up here in the Hudson River Valley of NY, so I decided I should probably make some Spring Rolls! My husband also loves them and I had been BOMBING on dinner and figured I should probably redeem myself. Sometimes my blog fails I try and disguise my food blog fails…

Carrot Top Pesto

No, it doesn’t have red hair, it’s literally made of the green fronds atop a carrot bunch. Or maybe the bottoms depending on how you look at it… Spent a nice spring afternoon touring the Farm at Stone Barns with the kiddos and was blown away by what they are doing there! Farmers, agriculturalists and…
