Corn & Bean Salsa

As a child I was always in the kitchen with my mom while she was cooking or baking, trying to learn how to make her recipes so I could one day replicate them myself.

Vegan Ceviche

First Gazpacho and now Ceviche…sticking with the cold summer dishes theme I thought now would be a good time to post my Vegan Ceviche recipe. This cool, crisp salad is great served up with tortilla chips or my personal favorite, on top of a bed of lettuce. Read more

Anyone out there have some ideas for me? Read more

He tries many different burgers, shares his opinions about them and maintains a mental list of his top favorite burgers; Hopdoddy being the home to one of his Top Five.

Kale & Avocado Salad

First, let me apologize for the not so pretty picture… I took this at my desk at work, and wasn’t thinking at the time it would be on the blog… But decided to post it anyways because it’s one of my favorite items in the Whole Foods prepared food section. Filled with lots of nutritious veggies, I can never pass up getting some when I see it… Read more
