8 Healthier Thanksgiving Side Dishes

It’s already November and Thanksgiving is quickly creeping up. Not quite as quickly as I thought evidently with my bus tickets booked for the wrong weekend, but quickly nevertheless. I’m not someone who thinks eating healthy during the holidays has to be tough, especially if you’re the chef. It’s all about finding and making recipes…

A Q & A With the No Meat Athlete

Last week I got the chance to meet up with Matt, the No Meat Athlete, in New York after getting an early copy of his new book(!!). The last time I met up with Matt was when he was running the Boston Marathon; since then he’s run a 100-miler and started plans to run a…

Hipsterfood’s Easy Lentil Soup

I always imagine soup as being one of those long, time-consuming foods to make. It definitely can be, but now I know it doesn’t have to be. I found this recipe on the blog, hipsterfood, and thought it looked too easy not to try. I’m also a sucker for anything with lentils in it. One…

Dairy-Free Coffee Ice Cream

When you go to Starbucks there are almost too many decision. First you have to choose a drink, then a size, then a milk, then any other number of questions—what happened to plain old coffee? I’m just kidding; of course you should go with a tall caramel frappuccino with whipped cream. I tried making this…

Italian White Bean Salad

This is one of my favorite things I’ve eaten this Summer, which is saying a lot since I love sweets and it’s a savory recipe. It’s just the prefect, refreshing thing to throw together and put on a plate and enjoy without ever turning on the oven. The ingredients here are really simple: White beans,…

Homemade Peppermint Patties

I’m a candy addict. I like having a little after every meal; it just leaves a better taste in your mouth than pasta sauce or vegetables ever could. That’s probably why I’ve blogged this recipe 2 or 3 times in the past couple of years. But it’s so good I have to post it again….

Black Bean Mole Sauce

Every now and then I find an old recipe on this  from a couple of years ago, poorly written with even worse photos. Especially when it’s one I loved I’m always tempted to make it again and give it the recognition it should have. This recipe’s a one food-processor wonder. The ingredient list is a…

How To Make Perfect Home Fries

Well cooked home fries are one of my favorite foods. I always look for them on a menu when I’m out to eat(clearly I only choose very classy places that would serve home fries at 6pm); they beat plain old french fries any day. Years of cooking these spuds have taught me that home fries…

Low-Fat Cinnamon Brown Sugar Granola

Brown sugar is an ingredient I don’t use enough. When I find it in the pantry, I could eat it by the spoonful. It reminds me of cinnamon rolls and apple crumbles, and so does this simple granola recipe. I usually like to add some sort of healthy fat like almonds or peanut butter to…
