Post image for Vegan Coconut Black Rice

I love eating so very much, and I love to make my own food as well, but I’m certainly not one for complicated recipes. This rice incredibly easy to make — and equally as delicious. I came up with this recipe one night last week when I was feeling (slightly) adventurous, and I was blown away at how delicious it came out!

This cake was amazing. Not only does it not taste "vegan", but I will now be using it as my go-to chocolate cake recipe.

I just made this last night; it was excellent! Everyone in my family enjoyed it--including the non-vegans :) There were a few changes to suit the contents if the kitchen: I used Olive oil instead of canola (it worked great with the not-too-sweet chocolate) and made a chocolate glaze instead of a frosting. Otherwise, I'm planning on keeping this recipe for the future!

Post image for Simple Lemon Honey Salad Dressing

I always seem to be drawn to complexity — I love constructing outfits with layers on layers; filling my home with curated clutter; and that weird feeling that surrounds my head when trying to pick apart the universe, life, and what happens before and after — but in a world filled with so much of everything… oftentimes simplicity is what we crave.

I will have to try this ...

I make this salad dressing all the time- it goes well with everything! I love using it on a shaved brussels sprouts salad with dried cranberries, feta, and slivered almond. The mix of textures and flavors is divine.

Post image for You Are What You Eat

It’s a phrase that I’ve heard for years upon years, but one that never quite made any sense to me: You are what you eat. Am I today a bowl of udon noodles? Was I last night a plate of quinoa and sauteed kale? An avocado in the morning and a bean burrito by noon? But after one fateful yoga class, it will now forever make sense to me. Read more »

There are few things, in my eyes, that beat the taste of a freshly baked brownie. Warm, dense, chocolatey, and just a tad undercooked… Pure sweet bliss. Read more »

Microwaves do 'destroy nutrients', but does it really pertain here. We're talking chocolatey decadent dessert. To go around calling people dumb, you need to take a look deep inside your soul and make sure it's not turning black.

Jalapeños have more vitamin C than an orange! I read this little tidbit on a chalk board in Bad Boy Burrito in Key West.

I tried the recipe yesterday, because it looks really awesome, and I followed step by step. I even had trouble finding some of the ingredients, such as the coconut oil (in Spain is not very common and it was really expensive, by the way). I didn't miss any of the steps and ingredients (all room temperature) and I didn't get this perfect red velvet colour, in fact it ended being brown, so upset for this... Because I was willing to make this cake since I don't remember when :(
Jill Budzynski -Feb 19, 2014, 8:47PM
Beth, this is a fantastic alternative to using a whole bottle of red food coloring (boooh) in a classic cake, and the goat cheese topping just takes it over the top. Would love to post it with credits to my blog all about dishes that showcase goat cheese. Thank you so much for the recipe!

I just made tthis with some modifications because I didn't have maple syrup and pomegranates, so I used honey and dried cranberries. Wow, you guys, I don't think I'll ever have regular oatmeal again!
Hillary Mitchell -Feb 10, 2014, 3:27PM
Awesome food tip from my doctor of Chinese medicine step-dad, the things that visually mimic certain parts of your body are nourishing for that part. Walnuts;brain, beans;kidneys, if you cut a carrot it resembles an eye, and I've always thought pomegranates beads were like blood cells... a bit weird but kind of fun!
