Outside the Salad Bowl: Egg Crepe w/ Spinach, Baby Shitakes & Feta

**This post is part of a month-long series as I participate in the Salad as a Meal Challenge. When I first looked at the title of this recipe, I was sad that I wouldn’t be able to eat it, surely it had flour in it. But to my surprise, this egg crepe was just that–egg! Honestly,…

Outside the Salad Bowl: Edamamole

**This post is part of a month-long series as I participate in the Salad as a Meal Challenge. Patricia Wells has a great recipe she calls “Guacamole Light,” which substitutes some of the avocado for peas. Genius! I’m not a huge fan of the texture of peas, so I decided to use edamame instead (not so…

Salad Essentials: Toppings (Vegan Savory Roasted Nuts)

**This post is part of a month-long series as I participate in the Salad as a Meal Challenge. A great way to add texture, flavor, and nutrients to a salad is to add toppings. One of my favorite toppings to add is nuts–gluten-free, crunchy, and healthy. Salad as a Meal has a recipe for curried pumpkin…

Penny Pinching Tip #12: Edible Holiday Gifts

I’m spending the holidays with AK’s family, and I wanted to bring an inexpensive but unique gift with me as a token of my appreciation. After some thought [fine, about 2 minutes worth :)], I decided to do something edible.

Savory Rosemary & Sweet Onion Pumpkin Muffins

I’ve made umpteen batches of cranberry pumpkin muffins, but recently I was in the mood for a savory rather than sweet muffin.

Ginger & Brown Sugar Glazed Walnuts

Ever since my sweet & smoky glazed almonds and smoky maple & brown sugar glazed walnuts, I’ve been contemplating a sweet and spicy glazed nut, and this time using walnuts. I’ve tried chili powder and pepper, but wanted something a bit out of the ordinary, so I decided to try using some powdered ginger. The…

Un-Granola Bars

I love granola bars, but sadly I can no longer eat oats, so I’ve been experimenting with un-granola bars–something that has the crunchy consistency of a granola bar, but nothing that will make me sick.

Garlic & Tarragon Pickled Beets

I used to hate beets. No joke, for years I refused to eat them. The funny thing is, my incredibly picky brother, Eytan, was the one who finally convinced me to try them pickled, and voila! Now I just can’t get enough of beets–raw in salads, roasted, poached, braised, and best of all–pickled! Some of…
