Frozen Vegetable Power Bowl

Ok ok ok, the name of this dish isn’t pretty. Frozen Vegetable Power Bowl??? What kind of meal is that? Well it’s what I’ve been eating for lunch (or some variation of) at work practically every day for a while now. It’s easy, takes minimal planning, and almost no thought. Perfect for when I don’t …

Homemade Spelt Flour Tortillas

Baked Rosemary French Fries

What’s your guilty food weakness? Mine is french fries. Not just any ol’ french fries either–the one’s from McDonalds. It’s a sentimental thing for me. Growing up, my mom and I would sometimes go through the McDonald’s drive thru, get some french fries, and just sit in the car and talk. As the oldest of …

Whole Wheat English Breakfast Tea Shortbread {Recipe ReDux}

When I saw this month’s Recipe ReDux’s theme was “cooking with tea”, I was stumped.  I had never even thought about cooking with tea, much less tried it before.  Tea to me was something to be drank, not eaten. So I did a little research online and found you can replace water with tea in …
