80 Vanilla Recipes That Are Far From Plain Vanilla

80 Vanilla Recipes That Are Far From Plain Vanilla

Posted on Tuesday, February 18, 2014 in Round-Ups

So, I’m guessing right about now you might be a bit, shall we say, chocolated out? And red velveted, and sugar cookied, and candy hearted? I can relate.

The days after Valentine’s Day are a time to regroup, refocus, recommit … oh, who am I kidding.

But it IS probably a time when chocolate doesn’t sound quite as good as it did, say, last week.  Right? And so I thought this would be a perfect time to bring you a round-up focusing on one of the most wonderful ingredients of all time.

Top 10 Recipes of 2013 (Yours and Mine!)

Top 10 Recipes of 2013 (Yours and Mine!)

Posted on Monday, December 30, 2013 in Round-Ups

It’s always fun – and, admittedly, a little weird – to look back at the recipes that resonated over the course of a year. And this year is no exception. For instance, this is a food blog that’s dedicated to showing that vegetarians and meat-eaters can live together in peace, and I post a lot of main-dish meals because of that. But 4 of the 10 most-viewed recipes? Sauces and condiments! I suppose vegetarians and meat-eaters alike like to dip and adorn their foods, no matter what they are. So, you know. It works out.

30 Vegetarian Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes

30 Vegetarian Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes

Posted on Sunday, December 1, 2013 in Round-Ups

One frustration plagues me when scouring the net for Thanksgiving leftover recipes. It’s the turkey, man. We get it! There are tons of delicious recipes for leftover turkey! But that’s not what I’m after!

I’m a vegetarian, so I don’t eat turkey. Even if I did, what if all the turkey was, well, gobbled up? And instead, I had a 7-quart Le Creuset pot half-full of leftover stuffing taking up an entire shelf in my fridge? Or a giant jar of homemade cranberry sauce that I forgot to take with me to the in-laws’ for our sauce-less Thanksgiving feast?

30 Super-Fast Vegetarian Dinner Recipes & Ideas that Take 20 Minutes or Less

Posted on Monday, August 26, 2013 in Round-Ups

September. It’s the time of year when that subtle “back-to-school” morning chill enters the air, and those wonderful relaxed summer days begin to disappear in the rear view mirror. But you know what? That’s okay. These first days of fall feel fresh to me. And, hey, there are apples and pumpkins, too!

But it’s a little weird how, without fail, everything speeds up this time of year. I don’t have a little one in school yet, but I feel it – and I always have. It’s the time of year to get back into the swing of things. Time becomes more of a commodity, evenings feel shorter, and when it comes to dinnertime, super-easy is where it’s at.

30 super-fast vegetarian dinner ideas that take 20 minutes or less to make | Kitchen Treaty

So if this time of year feels the same to you, here are a few simple recipes from around the Web that will help you get dinner on the table lickety split. A few are meat optional, but most are vegetarian – and pretty perfectly satisfying as-is.

Breakfast for dinner (in a dash)

Here are a handful of favorites – but the brilliance of breakfast for dinner is that most any classic breakfast combo will come together super-quickly for a fun (and filling) dinner.

Posted on Monday, July 8, 2013 in Round-Ups

Here we are at this intersection of circumstances that together indicate, strongly, that I am just not going to be cooking much this summer.

It’s summer, and warm weather has finally settled in. We’re super short on time, especially because we’re busy prepping our house to show to prospective buyers. And let me tell you, I am just plain done cleaning and re-cleaning and re-re-cleaning the kitchen to perfection only to mess it up again every time I cook up another meal.

35 Vegetarian Recipes for Cinco de Mayo (+ 10 Bonus Margarita Recipes)

35 Vegetarian Recipes for Cinco de Mayo (+ 10 Bonus Margarita Recipes)

Posted on Monday, April 29, 2013 in Round-Ups

Cinco de Mayo, or “the fifth of May” in Spanish, is a day for all Americans to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride, so says Wikipedia. When it comes to Mexican food and drink (or, at least, the Americanized versions of such), any excuse is a good excuse for such a celebration. Especially for vegans and vegetarians. Tostadas, peppers, quesadillas, corn, burritos, enchiladas … so many options that can be made so unbelievably delicious without meat, you don’t even give it a second thought.

Posted on Monday, March 11, 2013 in Round-Ups

I’ve been seeing a ton about artificial food dyes lately and it’s really got me thinking about what they mean for my family and me. As my guy and I gravitate more and more toward eating whole foods, our perspective about processed foods has really changed. In fact, it’s hard for me to call most processed foods out there “food.”

I know I’m stating the obvious when I say your Turkey Day feast doesn’t just have to be about turkey. Sure, cook up some bird for the inevitable meat-eaters at the table, but there’s no need to include meat in every dish. Not with all of these amazingly delicious vegetarian Thanksgiving recipes to choose from.

I’ve been a little into grilled cheese lately.

Oh, who am I kidding. Lately? Like I’ve ever not been into grilled cheese. Except that I actually usually called them toasted cheese sandwiches, but that’s a conversation for another day.

Because today, I’ve got a round-up of the cheesiest, butteriest, meltiest, and most creative grilled cheese sandwiches I’ve seen lately. Let’s dive in, shall we?
