Cauliflower Hash with Sunny Side Up Egg

Cauliflower Soft Tacos


  Peace, love, and taco grease! Right? Well in this case, peace love, and sauteed cauliflower spiked with fennel and smoked paprika.

Vermicelli Stir Fry with Tofu, Lemongrass, and Holy Basil


It’s been more than a year since I visited Newark Farmer’s Market, and we kind of went Christmas morning crazy this past Saturday while shopping there.

Szechuan Stir Fry with Tofu


It was 90 something degrees yesterday but what did we both want for dinner? Hot and spicy stir fry of course, AND I decided to oven fry the tofu on top of that! Hope the extra 200 or so calories I saved by skipping the pan frying was worth how heated my kitchen got with…

Daikon Scrambled Egg Tacos


What’s the number one must have hiking accessory? Why a hearty breakfast of course! Before I ventured out on my first hike on the Fairhill Trails near my home, I got busy preparing breakfast.
