Summer Pasta e Fagioli

Coconut Mango Popsicle

Ice cream is not something I have been super into, a few years ago I started making my own and ended up using it as a bribe to get coworkers to give me rides because I didn’t know what to do with it all. Sorbet on the other hand I […]

Philly-Style Mushroom Toast

I was craving a sandwich today and my go to is always sautéed mushroom, peppers, and onions (like anyone who’s meat-free and Philly-born). I was in no mood to drive to the store just to pick up some rolls so I decided to pile everything on top of toast and cover […]

I made a great teriyaki style sauce the other day for Brett but I made about a weeks worth so I pressed some tofu and decided to try it on a collard wrap for lunch. I julienned some carrots and red peppers, chopped a few scallions and boiled some rice noodles […]
