On a recent trip to Costco (with enough hunting around, there are indeed organic and clean-ingredient products to be found there!), there was a sale on Baba Foods hummus. We tasted and enjoyed many and bought three: sun-dried tomato and basil, spicy black bean, and garlic and artichoke. YUM. A nice way to switch things […]
Tzatziki. Tzatziki that’s vegan. This recipe is a bit of a revelation to me. Let me explain why, beginning with a little digression… I have a hard time picking favorites when it comes to food – specific items or dishes, restaurants, cuisines, etc. So I just accept the fact that I have many favorites.

The first: Brussels Sprouts with Beans & Grains This was one of those on-the-spot, use-what’s-in-the-fridge/cupboards meals that was simple and super healthy. It’s a combination of some […]
