Mediterranean Bean Balls

Note: this recipe uses a food processor.  If one is not available for your use,… Continue reading Mediterranean Bean Balls

Chocolate Blueberry Smoothie Bowl

Spring is here!  The flowers are blooming, the butterflies are pollinating, and my blender is making smoothies.  It’s the nature of things.  Anyway, I can’t believe I haven’t tried this combo yet and shared it!  It’s absolutely incredible.  If you’re looking for antioxidants for breakfast (or dessert), this is the bowl for you!  Tell me… Continue reading Chocolate Blueberry Smoothie Bowl

Let me set the stage here: I had a pumpkin patiently sitting on my counter for about a month and an array of spices to choose from in my cabinet.  I was tempted to remake my cheesy butternut squash soup using pumpkin, but I decided to branch out.  I followed the cooking outline from my… Continue reading Curried Pumpkin Soup

Breakfast of Champions!

I don’t have a lot of recipes on breakfast because I’m usually pretty simple: smoothie or oatmeal in the morning.  That’s what I like best.  Recently, though, I had company over for breakfast, so I cooked up a feast!  It went so well, y’all.  I made pancakes, chickpea loaf, baked potato pieces, and fresh-pressed orange… Continue reading Breakfast of Champions!
