My love of kabocha continues. and I keep finding new things to do with it. I think I ate this sandwich every day for a week. Yep, probably went through … six kabocha in five days?
Last night I was out of sandwich rolls so I made a kabocha rice bowl with all of these ingredients.

Yaaay for an extended weekend, yaaay!
Jason was out of town all week last week, flying back home late Thursday night. He took Friday off and we spent the day together, then hosted a small Valentines Day party with 12 of our favorite people at a private karaoke room place. SO fun.
My brother and I capped off the evening by singing Bohemian Rhapsody. Glorious.

Happy Monday everyone! Meatless Monday, at that.
I didn’t know the ingredient for this week until after we were already snowed in. Have you all heard what has been happening in Portland since [click to continue…]
Last month we flew down to L.A. for four days of fun with friends just before Christmas. We had front row seats to The Dan Band (extremely fun and I highly recommend!), we cry-laughed through the Anchorman premiere, and we sang Christmas carols in our fluffy robes to people in our hotel lobby. Super fun shenanigans and [click to continue…]
Hi guys! Whew, it is so so good to be back here. While I needed that hiatus, I sincerely missed being in the kitchen, sharing here, and most of all
scarecrow, the conversations with you all.
Much of my time off was not spent cooking, as the [click to continue…]
I have officially lost my rep as never skipping a Meatless Monday – I hate that it has been so many weeks without a recipe here from me. Between taking a bit of a break and having a kitchen in full reno (I currently go up the hill to Dad’s house to use the kitchen there), I haven’t been blogging as much.
I am jonesing to get in the kitchen and cook, though – all this time off is doing for me is making a very long list of creations I cannot wait to get to. Some delicious ideas come out of this brain, you guys. You will see soon. Kitchen is probably 3 weeks from completion.
That said, I could not skip both of the weeks featuring nuts. Being plant based, nuts are one of my favorite ingredients to work with – they are extremely versatile and the possibilities are endless.
Each of the following recipes have nuts as a major component. Enjoy:
ginger cashew nori rolls
marcona almond butter
spicy coconut almond sauce
raw caramel apple cobbler
marcona-sesame crusted tofu
double fudge and fig truffles
strawberry walnut kulfi
vanilla breve latte ice cream
apricot rosemary cheesecake
moussaka with garlic-cashew bechamel
chocolate dipped marcona butter cookies
spicy buffalo flatbreads
blueberry sunflower energy bites
maca power shots
cashew cabbage crunch salad
raspberry-chia cream smoothie
sweet cream protein pancakes
pumpkin cheesecake spread
chili-lime pistachio butter
praline pumpkin mousse cornucopias
salted caramel cheesecake
roasted butternut lasagna with crispy sage
sweet cream roasted peach bruschetta
chocolate mousse in peanut butter cookie cups
vegan goat cheese
tomato-basil pasta with kalamata cream sauce
blackened broccoli bisque

This weekend I wanted to be in at least three places at once. IFBC was happening in Seattle, Feast was feeding Portland extremely well, and one of my favorite weekends in Portland was here – Portland Veg Fest.
Veg Fest won.
and that means I won.
I was able to represent Attune this weekend, and spend it with one of my favorite people, JL. We always have such fun, and keep finding things we have in common. I’ve known JL for a few years now, and I just feel such joy when I see her.
Veg Fest was fantastic as always. I met Dr McDougall, I was lucky enough to [click to continue…]
Kabocha. I have become quite versed at cooking this winter squash – I am getting extra arm workouts every day. I may as well give the kabocha its own category here, I already have so many ideas to share with you. and I come up with new ideas nearly every day. Today I bring you a simple hash brown – squash instead of potato. This is a completely new [click to continue…]
