Recipes I've Shared:

Banana and Cinnamon Lactation Smoothie

Roughly equivalent of eating 3 lactation cookies.

Spinach and Feta Puff Pastry

Easy to make, great for parties.

Pumpkin Oat Bars

Delicious fall oat bars, full of good-for-you pumpkin and oats (and bad-for-you butter and sugar). Like something you'd get at a coffee shop!

Peanut Butter Vegan Mousse

I add this to the top of a chocolate coconut cream tart, as a way to sweeten it.

Chocolate Pudding Fluff

Chocolate Pudding with a little bit of pumpkin for nutrition, and cool whip for sweetness and fluff.

Brownie Baked Oatmeal Recipe

Add honey and serve with a little milk on top for a warm, healthy breakfast that echoes the happy feelings of having brownies for breakfast.

Cumin-Scented Quinoa with Spiced Lentils

Spicy, flavorful lentils can be served beside or on top of cumin-scented quinoa for a tasty and mildly exotic meal.

Lemon Chia Seed Pancakes

Dense, crunchy little pancakes. Great topped with blueberries.

Rice and Lentil Snow Soup

Creamy, spicey soup - very filling on a cold, wintery day.

Folate-y Fruit Smoothie

Wheat germ adds folate (smoothie total: 32% dv) to this fruity smoothie.

Nutty Chocolate Smoothie

Thick, crunchy smoothie with iron, folic acid, calcium, and omega-3.

Baby Kale, Tofu, Egg and Feta Scramble

This is more of a soy-flavored than egg-y. My husband describes the flavor as being 'ramen-like'.

Sweet Sweet Potato Noodles

If you have a vegetable spiralizer or julienne cutting tool, make some skinny sweet potato noodles and enjoy!

Raw Avocado Vanilla "Cheesecake"

Raw, vegan -- and perfect for all the avocado lovers.

Sriracha Baked Tofu

Chili-garlic tofu made with the world's tastiest (imho) sauce: Sriracha! Baked and super-easy.

Very Good (3 ratings)
Pimento Pepper Cheese

No-mayo pimento cheese spread; my family calls this 'pepper cheese.'

Madam Monster Smoothie

delicate, pale green smoothie with a light and refreshing taste

Fancy Fall Grilled Cheese

decadent grilled cheese sandwich, sweet and savory

Pumpkin Crunch

Awesome autumn snack - light, crunchy, and just a bit tart.

Bread Tart

This is intended to be a low-to-no refined sugar recipe; it's not very sweet as a result, and is best served with coffee as a tea-time or morning snack, as opposed to a focused dessert. It has a bready, nutty flavor.

Crockpot Vegetarian 16 Bean Soup

This is a tasty source of protein. Beans contain phytochemicals that are good for your heart, and are a good source of fiber.

Now that you know it's healthy, be sure to remember it's also quite yummy, especially on a cold day.

Corn and Lima Bean Casserole

cream corn side dish with a crunchy top

Kale-Olive Frittata Cups

Makes 12 cups of little breakfast frittatas.

Lemon White Wine Rice with Mushrooms

We had a delightful rice in Charleston that I wanted to try with mushrooms in place of shrimp.

Sesame Fried Soy Beans

flavorful bean recipe - works with mung, navy, or any light flavor bean

Drunken Fruit with Coconut Milk

Easy, versatile dessert that actually maintains some nutritional value

Pepper Cheese Spread with Garlic

Not the healthiest, but a family favorite. Use less salt -- recommended that you try it to taste! Adding a little sour cream to the mix also makes it a little smoother.

Cabbage Rolls

A vegetarian/vegan dinner, that is still filling and tasty (even for meat eaters). It's really nutritious, especially for the number of calories!

Vegan-friendly Cranberry Pecan Salad

Makes a great Thanksgiving side dish, and it made of raw fruits and nuts so it can be both vegetarian and vegan friendly.

Chocolate Iced Coffee Cocktail

We went to the Epcot food and wine festival this year, and I fell in love with the Godiva Iced Coffee at the Belgium stand. This is my attempt at making a version at home, hopefully a little lighter than I'm sure the original was!

10-Minute Energizing Oatmeal

Entered for tracking purposes, but definitely check out the site!

Cottage Pie

Cottage (Shepard's) Pie, which I made just in time for a Harry Potter marathon.

5-Minute Broccoli with Feta Cheese and Kalamata Olives

Vegetable Chili

Suggest serving each cup with 1/2 oz sharp white cheddar for maximum yumminess.

Pumpkin Glazed Donuts

Makes 10 donuts and 10 donut holes. The donuts are little, but tasty. Baking them makes them slightly more biscuity -- frying the dough would make for a more donut-like experience, but it also means more calories.

Devil's Sunset - Vodka Cocktail

This is a devilish drink because... well, it looks girly but was intended to taste more lemony than sweet.

Easy Bean Dip Base

Makes a great base for seasoned dips. Try it add chili powder/paprika, or cumin/pumpkin/lemon juice/garlic salt, or your favorite herbs, or cumin/tumeric.

Coconut Cherry Chicken

Suggestion: serve over rice.

Small Bagels

Makes smallish, plain bagels. Good when you want just a little bit of bread with your breakfast.

Easiest with a stand mixer.

Spinach and Egg Breakfast Sandwich

Consider dividing the ingredients and serving the sandwich 'open faced.'

Herbed Spinach and Cheese

If you love herbed cream cheese, this is your ideal side dish.

Dark Chocolate Popcorn Snack

Lightly cocoa-flavored popcorn.

Peach Smoothie

light, slightly sweet taste -- good start to your day, and portable too.

Berry Fitness Smoothie

This is not a 'sweet' style smoothie like you'd expect to get out; this is a creamy, nutritious smoothie with subtle berry flavor.

Mediterranean Folded Sandwich

A fresh, tasty 'taco' full of delicious Mediterranean flavors.

TBLT (Turkey-Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato) Wrap

Quick, easy, delicious wrap sandwich. Substitute 2 pieces of low-calories wheat toast for a more traditional sandwich.

Yum Yum Happy Calcium Brown Rice under Asparagus and Mushrooms

Perfectly tasty base for a topping of asparagus and mushrooms.

Garlic Heavy Hummus

If you *don't* like garlic, then this is not the recipe for you. Of course, you can always take some of the anti-vampire kick out of it by only using one small clove.

Sesame Seed Vinaigrette

Serving Size: 2 tbl

Recommended that you add just a tiny bit of sugar if the flavor is too vinegar heavy.
