My Vegan Cuban Buddha Bowl

This Vegan Cuban Buddha Bowl is the BEST thing I’ve eaten all week!  I created this recipe in an effort to get ready for a 4-day-get-a-way to Cuba with the Mister.  Yes, you read that right… We are in fact escaping by ourselves for FOUR WHOLE DAYS.

Mama’s Chicken & Dressing

We’ll call this my “Thanksgiving in June” recipe!  This is not my most healthy meal at all.  It’s NOT paleo, gluten free, OR vegan.  BUT I did use all organic ingredients, so that has to count for something good, right?!  No GMOs, baby.  It’s a meal we typically only eat two, maybe three times a year, and it’s ALWAYS served at Thanksgiving.  I’ve been super homesick for the last week or so and needed some comfort food.  Continue reading

Chickpea Tiki Masala & Coconut Rice

I don’t know why, but this is the very first time I’ve ever made rice with coconut milk.  And let me just say… it’s a genius idea!  I saw a recipe that had a bunch of other stuff in it, but I decided to keep it simple with just 4 ingredients.  I’m pretty sure I’ve said it before… I’m not a big rice lover at all.  It’s so bland to me.  And if I’m going to eat a carb, I want it to be super flavorful.  Right?!  The rice cooked in coconut milk takes it to a whole new level… and then combined with the flavors of tiki masala was a perfect combination!

Grilling season is upon us…unless you live in a super warm place where you can grill all year long!  This dish is PERFECT for grilling or putting on a smoker.  BUT due to the fact that we can’t have a grill on our patio, I had to cook my Moroccan Chicken in doors.  Sad day… but regardless, it turned out deeeeeelicious!!!   So, if you’re grilling on this lovely holiday weekend – THIS chicken should definitely be on your grill!!!  Continue reading
