Let's make beautiful food together!
This won’t be your typical Kansas City food tour, because I am told that one of those would not be complete without KC barbeque, and I like to eat a bit lower on the food chain than that. Actually, it might shock you to learn that KC has some downright AMAZING options for us plant-food-lovers! I […]
Maybe this makes me a wimp, but I reeeeally can’t handle the heat when it comes to salsa. Medium is about as crazy as I get on the spiciness scale. So it comes as no surprise that I’m a big fan of salsas that incorporate fruity sweetness into the mix. Any mango salsa lovers out […]
It seems that every time I find myself drafting out a new post in my head about a monumental event, like my birthday, or the New Year, I find myself getting all sappy and reflective. Like this year, for instance. It was supposed to be an uphill year, after two really reeeeeally bad ones for my […]
You’ll have to forgive my long absence… the PH blog has been undergoing a major spruce-up! So whaddya think of the new design? Our focus in re-designing was to make this space more user-friendly, less cumbersome to my server, and (of course) more attractive to you (and me!) I’m SO pleased with the result, and excited […]
Last week I hosted a (long-overdue) birthday dinner for my brother’s sweet wife, Kelly. And OH MAN, was it fabulous! As is our family’s birthday custom, the birthday girl got to handpick the entire menu and was not required to take into account anyone else’s food preferences whatsoever! She chose a very carbtastic meal, and […]
I’ve been getting a funny question rather frequently lately… What does a typical day of meals/snacks look like for me? I suppose it isn’t that funny since I’ve made no secret about the fact that I’ve transitioned to eating mainly whole, plant foods, and have also cut out pretty much all added sugar. Not exactly […]
~ Some time ago I was asked to collaborate with Golden Girl Granola for a product review here on Pretty/Hungry! I had never heard of the company before so I was very intrigued. Afterall, it’s not easy to find a great granola… most of the brands I’ve tried are far too sweet, and are, of […]
~ Meet Miss February. This soup is Miss February in the 2015 Pretty/Hungry Recipe Calendar. Have you snagged your copy yet? Because it’s not too late. (Although it’s kinda too late since we’re two months into 2015… but what I mean is, it’s not too late for you to get a calendar if you want […]
~ You might recall a recent Facebook post in which I sheepishly confessed that I just now removed the pumpkins from my porch. (Yes, the ones I had out there to commemorate the Harvest season. Yep, it’s February.) I’m a mom of a 2-year old and a newborn, and I run two home businesses… what […]
I’m a major smoothie girl! And so is my little one. (Which is delightful to me because she considers smoothies to be a real treat and I’m happy to serve them up since they’re soooo good for her!) I’ve shared my Tropical Green Monster Smoothie with you before, and also my Post-Partum Super Smoothie. But […]
I don’t know if you all have noticed but it has been a LOOOONG time since I’ve posted an actual recipe here for you. The Kale Casserole doesn’t exactly count because I took those photographs about 3 months before our baby was born. Since Ava’s arrival, it’s been a whole different story. Lots of last […]
I’ve wanted to share this recipe with you for ages! It’s one of my favorites… a go-to in our household. There’s just the small matter of these two babies I’ve been blessed with. Most nights, they prohibit the making of any sort of proper dinner, and on the rare miraculous occasions when a meal does […]
In many Thanksgivings past, I’ve counted down the days til the big feast… fantasizing about all the amazing ways I planned to “cheat” on whatever diet I was on at the time. Pie, stuffing, countless buttered rolls, and an obligatory bite of turkey. (Turkey’s never been my fave. Anyone else grossed out by the smell??) Well, […]
~ I’m not sure what predispositions you bring to the table when it comes to plant-based eating, or what you think when you hear that phrase. I know that we live in an age where trendy new “diets” lurk around every corner and that you probably know numerous people who are trying “paleo” or “gluten-free” or “soy-free” […]
~ Something very odd has happened to me lately… I’m am losing my desire for super-sugary sweets. What is going ON with me?!? It’s quite baffling. All of a sudden I cannot finish a pint of Ben & Jerry’s (which is unheard of!) Even my ongoing love-affair with Seasonal Reeses just isn’t burning as hotly […]
