TGIMF (Thank Goodness It’s Meatball Friday)

Okay, so maybe meatball Friday doesn’t actually exist. I just wanted an excuse for a fun pun. I feel like whenever I don’t know what to make, meatballs are my total savoir and go-to.

The Best International Qunioa Bowl Ever

I’ve been playing around with Asian cuisine and flavors for the last couple of weeks, and to make a long story short I’m HOOKED. When you’re on a vegan diet, sometimes classic American dishes like steak and potatoes simply don’t have the same charm they used to. I actually tried eating a plain baked potato […]
