Meatless Monday: Ground Tempeh

One night last week I needed something quick and satisfying for dinner…Pasta. There’s something comforting about the traditional spaghetti and red sauce dinner that I crave every now and then.

Tahini Sauce

OK - so here’s the Tahini Sauce recipe I promised you. This stuff works magic with those edamame patties I made earlier this week.

Its strength makes me feel strong. The majority of the Salmon you find at supermarkets and grocery stores is […]

Easy Homemade Pumpkin Pecan Cream Cheese

And so it begins! My love affair with all-things pumpkin, that is. The Fall season has so much to offer - cooler weather, spiced aromas, the changing of leaves…wait, who am I kidding? Changing of leaves in Florida? Okay, so maybe I don’t really get to experience that part of fall, having lived in Florida […]

Simple yet Elegant Seared Scallops

As I was flipping through my bon appetit magazine today, I found this tasty looking scallop recipe and thought I would share. Although I don’t eat them too often, I really love scallops. These mollusks are a nice change from the typical filet of fish, and they offer a rather hearty composure. Somewhat sweet in flavor […]
