Mexican Fried Rice Nachos

Mexican Fried Rice Nachos

Our world has been turned upside down this past week. If you follow us on Instagram or subscribe to our newsletter, you’ve already heard: our adopted son, Larson Ames, entered the world on February 19! I got to witness his birth (incredible), and we spent a blissful few days in the hospital. We owe everything to our sweet birth mama, who is an angel. He’s home now, and we are still pinching ourselves. Larson is absolutely perfect, and we are head over heels in love. His birth is the answer to thousands of prayers after 8 years of uncertainty of how our family would start. If you’re new to our story,  see these posts on cancer, miscarriage, adoption, and uncertainty. We made these nachos the day before Larson was born, and it couldn’t be a more fitting recipe to share with you today. It’s by our friend Jessica Murnane, who’s just published her first cookbook, One Part Plant, full of gorgeous plant-based recipes. I met Jessica around the time we were looking into pursuing adoption, and not only is she an incredible, passionate and talented woman, she is an adoptive mama too! (Her son Sid is quite the charmer.) She’s been a bit of an adoption […]

Crunchy Baked Granola Bars

Crunchy Baked Granola Bars

A recent beach trip found me at a cozy coffee shop nibbling on something like these granola bars.

As I do, as soon as I got home, I got to work recreating a version of my own. Welcome to the crunchiest, tastiest baked granola bars (possibly) ever.

Not only are these bars dreamy, but they’re easy to make, requiring just 9 ingredients. They also come together in less than 1 hour and don’t require a blender or food processor.

Sweet potato quinoa salad with tahini dressing

Sweet potato quinoa salad with tahini dressing

I had real trouble naming this recipe – there are so many tasty ingredients that I wanted to mention! Crispy roasted sweet potatoes, crunchy roasted green beans, fluffy quinoa, black beans, pine nuts, rocket… but that doesn’t make for a particularly catchy recipe name. So I’ve stuck with ‘sweet potato quinoa salad’ – you’ll have […]

The Healthy Vegan Drive-Through Ordering Guide

The Healthy Vegan Drive-Through Ordering Guide

Vegans, we know how tough it is out there. Everything is soaked in butter, layered in cheese, or has surprise ingredients like eggs or condensed milk (we’re looking at you, Pumpkin Spice Latte). Sometimes you might wonder if all you can eat is french f…

You’ll Never Eat Another Gummy Bear or Marshmallow Again After Hearing What It’s Made From

If you look at the ingredients on a package of gummy bears – even organic ones – you’ll see expected things like corn or brown rice syrup and sugar. But you’ll also see something called gelatin. Seems innocent enough, but its source might surprise you…

Kale Chip Nachos (30 Minutes!)

I used to make these nachos all the time as a “single lady dinner” on nights spent by myself or with girlfriends who were also into “hippie dippy” meals. Where my fellow hippies at? (Raise your hands!)

I love this meal because it’s healthy, satisfying, and comes together so quickly! Plus, Mexican food for the win. Let’s make nachos, shall we?

These nachos are simple, requiring just 7 ingredients and 30 minutes to prepare!

Cajun spiced savoury trail mix

Cajun spiced savoury trail mix

Who’s ever had trail mix? Depending on where in the world you live, your answer is probably either ‘of course I have!’ or ‘what’s trail mix?’. If you’re unfamiliar with it, trail mix is basically a mixture of tasty bits – that’s about as detailed as the recipe needs to be. There are usually various nuts and […]

Eggplant and Double Green Pizza (and Calzone!) with Foolproof Wholewheat Dough

Eggplant and Double Green Pizza (and Calzone!) with Foolproof Wholewheat Dough

Despite being quite evangelical when it comes to home-cooking, a girl needs a break sometimes. While my preference is to go out, sometimes I really can’t be bothered making the effort, especially if it involves getting out of cosy pajamas (which I may put on as early as 4 pm in the dead of winter) or …
