Peanut Butter Chocolate Marble Pudding Pie

We found a recipe on Forks Over Knives that sounded like heaven – Peanut Butter Chocolate Marble Pudding. Because, well, peanut butter and chocolate. And Forks Over Knives provides all plant-based recipes, so we knew this would be friendly to my dairy allergy. The only problem was that the recipe […]


Curried Scalloped Potatoes

These scalloped potatoes are rich and delicious, but be warned – they are spicy! The spice is due to inclusion of minced habanero chile. If you appreciate the flavor of a good Jamaican curry but would prefer to have less heat, you can omit the habanero. This recipe was adapted […]


Slow-Braised Collard Greens

Last fall, we committed to taking a more “vegetable-first” approach to our meal planning. This lead us to an incredible bookstore, Omnivore Books, where we picked up three unique and diverse vegan cookbooks. Bryant Terry’s “Afro-Vegan” cookbook has introduced us to African, Caribbean, and American Southern flavors. We’ve had to […]


Sweet Potato Chickpea Cakes

We love sweet potatoes, and we love chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans). So when we came across this recipe in Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow. we figured it was going to be a winner. They smelled amazing while they were cooking, but the finished cakes looked surprisingly similar […]


Turkey Trot Meatballs on Arugula Salad

This recipe from the cookbook Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow. was so good, we barely adapted it. We did innovate a bit by layering the meatballs on top of a crisp and simple Arugula Salad, and serving them with Sweet Potato Chickpea Cakes (from the same cookbook). We highly […]


Salmon Roasted in Butter with Dill

We’re trying to help our sons to love cooked fish as much as they love sushi. Does that sound backward? Living in San Francisco has exposed us to many fantastic options for fresh sushi, and we’ve watched the boys progress from eating bowls of sushi rice and “beans” (e.g. edamame) […]


Chipotle Black Bean Burgers

We’re trying to eat less beef, and fortunately, our sons love black bean burgers. We’re always on the lookout for new variations. We all fell in love with this recipe we discovered in Shalene Flanagan and Elyse Kopecky’s cookbook Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow. To make it low-FODMAP friendly, […]


Stuffed Potato Skins with Guacamole

Dinner or snack? Snack or dinner? It’s hard to categorize these crispy, salty finger-foods as one or other other. On their own, perhaps they’re best as an hors d’oeuvre or afternoon snack. Pair them with steamed asparagus or a side salad, and they earn a righteous place on the dinner […]


Chicken Sausage with Potato and Red Cabbage

We LOVE cooking one-pan meals because they make clean-up fast and easy. This recipe has the added benefit of flexibility. You can swap in any type of sausage that you enjoy, including a plant-based sausage to make this meal vegan. Green cabbage or brussel sprouts would pair just as nicely […]


Malaysian Sambal Telur

Our family loves a good curry with rice. This Malaysian egg curry doesn’t disappoint. It’s a fairly simple preparation, and the soft boiled eggs provide a nice creamy balance to the tangy and aromatic seasonings. The recipe calls for sambal oelek, which is a flavorful Idonesian chile paste made of […]
