Pasta, garlic, butter, parmesan? How can you go wrong? Every now and again I like to limit the amount of animal protein I take in. By choice I only eat poultry and seafood. Vegetarian dishes can be just as hearty and delicious and this recipe is a winner! I came across a basic recipe for Parmesan Garlic Pasta (thank you @damndelicious) and put my own … Continue reading Parmesan Garlic Pasta
I was at a get together recently and a friend, who happens to be vegan, brought what he called Vegan Ceviche. This sounded interesting to me since ceviche, as I know it, is a delicious concoction of raw seafood in lime juice with onion, tomato. avocado, and cilantro.

If I can find … Continue reading Avocado Crema with Cilantro

Over the summer I was at a Pot Luck Party. I saw that someone brought some rice noodles with veggies. It was so delicious and I kept on eating it; probably about 3 helpings worth…..Shhhh don’t tell anyone. 😄. I’ve periodically seen and bought rice noodles at the deli counter, but now I’m thinking how hard would it be to make my own? Let me … Continue reading Sesame Rice Noodles – Yum Delicious
Don’t ask me how or why, but some how I came home from Whole Foods with farro. What is this grain and what am I going to do with it? Well from the package front it says that farro is a good source of fiber. Okay…that’s good. More research…I found out that farro is an ancient grain (in the wheat family) that has been around … Continue reading Farro? What’s that?
