This is by far the best queso I have ever had, anywhere.
I have already made it three times since I received The Sexy Vegan’s latest book, Happy Hour at Home. (Yes! Intrigued was I, as one of my favorite themes around here is my own Happy Hour at Home!).
I received Brian Patton’s book to review, and lucky you! I have a second copy I am giving away! I actually have it here in my possession, which means the lucky winner will be getting some goodies from me as well. It’s how I do.

I have a couple early food memories around squash.
One is Grandpa Z’s zucchini. He would grow them bigger than our dachshund.
He would slice them into half-inch rounds, batter and fry them. Oooh mama, those were some good eatin’. Summertime at the grandparents house was fun and tasty.
I can still see Grandpa Z holding up one of his big zucchini, huge grin on his face.
The second memory is my mom’s favorite way to prepare squash – split in half, scoop out the innards, bake with a [click to continue…]
Aside from this stuff, buffalo flavor is my number two favorite way to spice up a recipe.
I have shared several ways to make and use a buffalo dip (that post always has an increase in views around football season), people rave about my caramelized onion buffalo tarts, and I top everything from pizza to salads with this tangy hot sauce.
Saturday’s lunch was all about the buffalo sauce – and I finally cooked with [click to continue…]
errey day I’m waffelin’
Okay – not every day, but often. Also? Recycled line, I’ve used it before.
You might know I do love my waffles, though. and that I am anything but traditional with them. Sweet? Yes. Savory? Absolutely. As sandwich bread? Why not. In place of a sandwich altogether, in stuffed waffle form? All the time.
Today, because it is Sunday and we’re having waffles for breakfast, I bring you a few waffle recipes to choose from – some sweet, some savory, some stuffed, all good:
grilled cheese wafflewich sliders
sweet zucchini waffles with mango
raspberry coconut flax waffles
carrot juice waffles
croque monsieur stuffed waffles
tahini kale stuffed waffles
cheesy tomato stuffed waffles
pancakes or waffles? ever enjoy them savory?
Today I am playing with two of my favorite flavors – bright tangy lemon and salty capers. I am also playing with my spiralizer again – zucchini pasta is just so good.
This ‘pasta’ dish works warm or cool – but here’s a hint: when it is warm, these goat cheese croutons begin to soften and melt into the pasta, resulting in another layer of bold flavor.
Please come say hello to me at Attune and see the recipe – lemon caper pasta with goat cheese croutons
this recipe was shared with Healthy Vegan Fridays.
Last October, Jason and I snuck away for a weekend at the beach. We stopped at the store to stock our hotel room kitchen, and this turned into an impromptu cider tasting weekend. We each selected several pints of cider, some we knew we liked, some based on the pretty wrapping. Come on, you do the same thing, admit it.
There were a couple that I recall thinking [click to continue…]
One of the most popular sandwiches at that deli I ran was a toasted croque monsieur. I am positive it still is. Equal to the espresso line in the morning and the lineup for soup on cold Portland days, the line for hot sandwiches snaked around the store.
Just thinking about all of that brings nostalgia – I am ready for crisp cool fall days.
Soup. Lining up for your food cart favorite.
Walking down the street drinking warm coffee, cold morning air that you can [click to continue…]
