Vegan Taco Salad

When I was sent this week’s challenge for Meatless Monday, I immediately went on the hunt for great meal ideas. I am pretty obsessed with this vegan taco salad with creamy cilantro lime dressing (oh yeah!) from Nutrition By Kara. Not only is Kara’s recipe meatless — it’s also gluten-free, dairy-free and has no added sugar. Kara’s a nutritionist, so she knows what she’s talking about when she says it’s full of clean, plant-based protein, fiber, healthy fats, antioxidants and vitamins A, C, and K.

Ole!

Vegan Taco Salad Ingredients:
• 3/4 bag organic arugula
• ½ 15.25oz can organic corn (no sugar added)
• ½ 15oz can organic black beans
• ½ 3.8oz can sliced black olives
• 1 large handful sliced organic mixed tomatoes
• 1 cubed avocado
• 1 almond flour tortilla (you can find these at Whole Foods)

Creamy Cilantro Lime Dressing:
• 1 cup soaked cashews
• 3½ tbsp olive oil
• 1 lime
• 3 tbsp pure water
• ½ tbsp cilantro leaves
• 1/8 tsp sea salt
• pinch of black pepper

Marabeth’s Pizza and Pajama Party

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: my sister Marabeth knows how to throw a party! A few weeks ago, she and her girlfriends got together for a Pizza and Pajama Party — but because we’re talking about Marabeth, you know they took things to the next level.

Rather than ordering delivery or popping some frozen pre-made pies in the oven, the ladies created a pizza bar complete with all the fixings to make their own personal slices of yum.

Not only is their pizza bar concept way more fun, it is a much healthier route to stuffing your face with pizza since you control the portion size by rolling out as little or as much crust and cheese as you prefer before piling on fresh veggies.

I mean, it’s basically a salad bar! But better. Continue Reading

Pomegranate Vanilla Skillet Cobbler

When I came across this recipe from Jessica Merchant of How Sweet It Is I practically fell out of my chair. Can we talk about this for a second?? Warm and fluffy cobbler with juicy berries and plump pomegranate seeds, topped with ice cream? Sign. Me. Up.

The splashes of ruby red makes this pretty dish almost too good to eat — but let’s not be ridiculous. If your crew is anything like mine, it might not even make it to the plates. Somebody hand me a spoon!

It’s A Sugar Cookie Soirée

My sister Marabeth and her girlfriends are always getting together to do fun and creative activities. I’m having serious FOMO from their latest get-together, where they did a sweet twist on an ordinary potluck. The hostess had sugar cookie dough on hand and asked everyone to bring their favorite cookie ingredients. Together they made combinations of cookies to enjoy warm out of the oven and package-up for friends and family. What ingredient would you bring to this party? I’m partial to the holiday M&Ms…

I’ll let Marabeth tell you how they made their delicious “Christmas Bars.” Let me know if you try them at home!

My girlfriends and I had so much fun making these simple Christmas Bars! We had everyone bring their favorite cookie ingredients to make a fun new creation together and share! It was a blast!! I bought my sugar cookie mix already packaged, but if you want to make yours from scratch I’ve included a recipe below. We added white chocolate chips and M&M’s. It was so super easy — and even more fun!

Recipe: Spicy Cool Roasted Squash

How can the same dish be both spicy and cool, you ask? Executive Chef Yousef Ghalaini of Fig at the Fairmont Hotel here in Santa Monica explains that it’s all about the spices — Vadouvan and Calabrian chili, paired against the cool sauce — cucumber yogurt with mint. This recipe is great as a side dish or entrée for a vegetarian night. This can even be made vegan if you omit the yogurt.

I can’t wait for you guys to try this. It’s totally going to up your kitchen game! Continue Reading

This Tea Can Cure What Ails You

I look forward to the festive holiday season all year long. While traveling, gift giving, and perfecting passed down recipes can be so much fun, it can also be kind of stressful. Stressful situations make our immune system weaken while they’re working overtime. There’s nothing sadder than being sick over the holidays, so I like the idea of warming up and chilling out with this delicious tea that will keep you healthy throughout the season.

Ayurveda Practitioner Lois Leonhardi explains that Tulsi tea (also called “Holy Basil”) has been used by ancient cultures for its healing and rejuvenating qualities. Rich in antioxidants, it supports your immune system and digestive system. It’s naturally caffeine free so sipping the tea daily can help you feel — and even look — better. Continue Reading

Leftover Cranberry Dip

Can you believe Thanksgiving has already come and gone?! Not to be cheesy, but time really does fly when you’re having fun! And speaking of cheese (mmmmm… cheese), I discovered this great cranberry dip recipe that is phenomenal slathered on a bagel, on top of crackers, or even just spread over a piece toast.

I don’t know about you guys, but we always seem to have a leftover bag of fresh cranberries every year that just sits there begging to be whipped up into something — but I never know what. Now I do! Continue Reading

Warm Apple Spiced Sugar Cookies

I’m so excited to have Meghan Rosko back with one of her amazing cookie recipes and design tutorials! She always makes me feel like I could make something beautiful, and no matter how my batch turns out I always have a blast trying!

Besides, even if your icing skills aren’t going to win awards anytime soon, the cookies are still insanely delicious.
