Monday Muster & Pound Cake

Orange Applesauce Date Nut Cake

Today, I wanted to share another vegan dessert that I recently tried and loved. This cake is so moist and sweet that the hubs even liked it, too. In fact, I didn’t even tell him that this could be good for him because it might have tainted his opinion. Honestly, I don’t know if I […]

Things have been a little quiet around here for a few days as I’ve been under the weather. Lying in bed with cold/flu symptoms is never fun and I’m really about done with it; however, it is the perfect time to enjoy some soup. Between the hubs and I, a lot of soup has been […]

So sit back and enjoy this fabulous food story from Claire at Elegant Eating  :-)   My college life, before we all dispersed for winter break 2010, was quite the introduction to slovenly living.

Lime Cilantro Hummus

With the Super Bowl coming up, my head has been in the “small bites” game and all I can think about is snack food. Although, I’ve never been much of a cilantro fan, I needed some for a couple of recipes so I reluctantly made my purchase. I’m so glad that I did because the […]

Healthier Guacamole

As I mentioned, yesterday, I’m in a “small bites” state of mind. I don’t watch much football but I always watch the super bowl with the hubs. He gets to watch the game, I get to watch the commercials and we both get to have some great food. Since the hubs and I are putting […]

Chunky Borscht

Borscht is a soup that’s prepared mainly of beets. Being that I love beets, I’m not certain why I’ve never tried this dish before. Such a humble, unassuming bowl of goodness and I can’t stop eating it. Beet soup has its roots in Russia and other Eastern European communities and was typically served in poorer […]
