Pasta Primavera (Fresh Veggie Pasta)

Mom life has really put a halt on my cooking time, not that I’m complaining. We have resorted to eating Subway a few too many times now, and I finally decided I needed to do some meal prepping so we didn’t feel the need to run to Subway (or worse options) every time we get …

Simple Vegetarian Quesadilla

When you’re at work and feeling like death, take advantage of sick time and go home to rest. I was surprised to find I was hungry being the crazy headache and nausea I was experiencing all morning (no this is definitely not the same as morning sickness)! I needed something that was easy and not …

Panko Crusted Tilapia

As this little baby grows more and more, the worse my heartburn has gotten. Every ounce of me wanted to get some pizza or a veggie burger and fresh fries from our favorite local burger joint. But there’s only so far the taste of junk gets you. I’m glad we decided to stay and eat …

Italian Garlic Parmesan Pasta

So so so sick of the snow and storms here. We’ve been nailed so many times this winter, and not with mild storms, but full on blizzards. I think there have been already 3 storm days in the last two weeks due to extreme cold and winter weather. Can it be spring yet? All day …

Chana Palak

Every time I go to the Indian buffet there is a version of palak or saag which are a spinach or other leafy green dish. They usually contain something else including chickpeas or paneer, which is a blocked cheese. It’s my father-in-law’s favorite dish and something I always steer clear of. That being said, I …

Been a tough week. Our flight to visit my in-laws got cancelled due to a major winter storm, I’ve had THE worst heartburn all week thanks to our growing little one, and it’s been so bitter cold here, it’s enough to burn a person out. That being said, a little heat from some vegetarian ‘chorizo’ …

Easy Teriyaki Vegetable Stir Fry

There are those nights where you get home from work and want dinner quick. It’s not often we haven’t prepared ahead of time, but this was one of those instances. Luckily we’re prepared for these situations – most recently we purchased a giant bag of stir fry frozen vegetables from Costco. I’d normally cut my …

Chana Balti

Our favorite Indian restaurant is Punjabi and they have a specialty dish called Balti. It took us quite awhile to give it a try, but it became quickly our favorite. Being we are vegetarian, there were a couple of options for us, including Chana Balti and Mushroom. From there they had options of adding mixed …

Garlic Roasted Broccoli

My husband loves broccoli. When they say kids hate broccoli, well this guy is the opposite. Sometimes I use this as an addition to other main courses, and he eats half the tray before I get to the point of needing to add it. I’ve learned I need to make extra if he’s home, since …

Indian Spiced Tofu and Green Beans Curry

Since the first time trying my first Indian dish, which of course was Chicken Tikka Masala, I’ve branched into other dishes, including sabzi (Indian vegetable based dishes), bean, chickpea, and (lentil) based dishes. Since we’ve been cutting meat out of our diets, we’ve been experimenting with a lot more of these sabzi dishes to give …
