Gluten-Free & Paleo-ish in Japan

Just about a year ago, my mom and brother visited me in Japan. We had a wonderful time traveling, but I was a little worried about food. I wasn’t sure how adventurous they would be, as it was their first international trip. But I was super proud of how flexible they were and how willing […]

Ghost Pops (or Sunbutter Drops)

Naming these bad boys was a greater challenge than making them. My sister gave me a hand, with her customary hilarity: “Sunbutter balls does not sound good. Any other ideas?” “…All I am thinking of are not helpful names….Spooky balls. Holding in my laughter” (Which for her is a considerable feat). “Balls in general is […]

First Guest Post: Blueberry Avocado Smoothie!

The other day I was searching for an email my brother had sent me and I typed “Joe radish” into the search bar. We tend to like the same sorts of food – and by like I mean rave like addicts – such as grilled vegetables, coconut anything, and of course sweet potatoes. We email at […]

Creamy Pumpkin Pasta & Spring Vegetables + Our first giveaway!

Last night my friend asked me what my favorite thing was in my fridge at that time. I couldn’t come up with a good response until today. Leftovers. Leftovers are glorious. My usual strategy is to cook two big meals on the weekend: turkey & vegetable soup, maybe a Thai, Nepalese or Indian curry, or […]

Simple Green Smoothie + A Stroke of Squash Genius

I wanted to write “A Stroke of Sleep Deprived Squash Genius”, but I thought that might get a little long. International travel, my friends, is a terrifically wonderful thing. So often we can take for granted the fact that we can get in a giant metal bird and FLY. Honestly, whenever I get a little […]

I was never a huge fan of cabbage as a child. It fell under the category of over-boiled, soggy vegetables, ruined by unfortunate preparation methods (Oh how I lament how many people must have been turned off lovely broiled Brussels sprouts or lightly sautéed spinach because they’ve only ever experienced bland, boiled, limp nothingness). And […]
