Avocado Sweet Potato Tacos

These simple chili-spiced avocado sweet potato tacos, topped with creamy avocado-yogurt lime sauce, make a delicious vegetarian dinner.

This sweet potato taco recipe is an old favorite that I wanted to re-share with you. I first started making these tacos years ago, but it’s one of those recipes that I come back to time and time again because it’s such a filling & flavorful vegetarian weeknight dinner option. The list of ingredients is short and the steps are easy – what’s not to love? Plus, I just think roasted sweet potatoes are such a cozy wintertime food, especially when they’re wrapped up into warm tortillas like a big hug. There are basically two steps to the recipe: Make…

Overnight Oats Recipe

Overnight oats are the best make-ahead healthy breakfast! Here are 4 easy, healthy recipes to keep you from getting stuck in a breakfast rut.

Guacamole Beyond Burgers w/ Spicy Sweet Potato Wedges

Easy grillable plant-based burgers with easy guacamole and spicy grilled sweet potato wedges. Great for summer cookouts! Vegan.

When I first tried to become vegetarian (many years ago), the concept was so new to me that I didn’t really know what to eat. My go-to easy “meals” were those tiny cardboard-flavored frozen veggie burgers. I’d eat them for dinner and I’d bring them to cookouts… they tasted terrible and everyone around me thought I was a little crazy. It wasn’t long until I quit frozen veggie burgers altogether. A few weeks ago, we gave the Beyond Burger a whirl and wow(!), have plant-based burgers come a long way! First off, you’ll actually find them in the meat case…

Yogurt Pound Cake

This simple pound cake recipe is moist, lightly sweet & nicely spiced. It's a divine afternoon treat, especially with dollops of yogurt & in-season fruit.

I hope you’re all having a great weekend! Ours has been pretty chill – we went to the farmers market, Jack played video games, and I did some baking. I’m excited to share this lovely little pound cake recipe with you because I think it’s the perfect Sunday afternoon treat. It’s lightly sweet and nicely spiced. Yogurt makes it tangy while giving it a nice puffed up look. It’s moist with that perfect cake-y crumb that you want in a quick bread. My Pound Cake Recipe To be fair, I’m stretching the term “pound cake” a little here. It’s traditionally…

Best Veggie Burger

If you make one veggie burger recipe, it has to be this one. These burgers have a wonderful savory flavor and hearty texture. They're grillable, too!

We’re crazy about this veggie burger. I’m not usually one to title recipes as “Best Ever!!,” or “Ultimate!!” because I’m quite a shy person and that seems loud, but I am absolutely smitten with this veggie burger recipe. First of all, these are grill-able! Bring them to your backyard bbq or your family cookout. You can even make them a day or two in advance because, of course, you’d rather be spending time in the sun versus spending time in the kitchen. In these photos, I made the burgers as sliders, but the recipe works as larger-sized burgers as well.…
