Dad’s Famous Fried Egg & Marmalade Sandwich

Dad’s Famous Fried Egg & Marmalade Sandwich

Well, he really uses jelly. Grape jelly to be exact. I use marmalade. Or preserves. Whatever the mood strikes. I got this marmalade as a gift when I went to Vermont. It has an interesting sweet and tangy balance, and really works well here. I made this sandwich on a...

Sun-Dried Tomato Spread

Sun-Dried Tomato Spread

For this month's redux challenge - making or using dehydrated foods - I REALLY wanted to make fruit leather. Unfortunately, I don't have a dehydrator, I didn't have much time to use the sun method, and my oven is acting a fool (it seems to only work on Tuesday's and...

Apple Pumpkin Smoothie

Apple Pumpkin Smoothie

It truly feels like fall today in Charleston - at least this morning it did. I woke up to a 64 degree temperature and it couldn't have been more pleasant. I just love this time of year. Last night it was cool enough to open up all the windows and let some fresh air...

Vegetarian Tempeh Meatballs

Vegetarian Tempeh Meatballs

Last night I was in the mood for something comforting. A pasta and meatball kind of comfort. I've made tempeh meatballs in the past, but I've never been satisfied with their moisture level; they were always so dry. Flavorful, but dry. So rather than baking or pan...

Coconut Curry Lentils {with turmeric + raisins}

For the past few weeks, I've been meaning to have a turmeric dish of some sort. My co-worker has an interest in doing some research on the health benefits of turmeric and so I can thank her for the inspiration (thanks Arian!). For years, researchers thought that...

Super Easy Chia Pudding

Super Easy Chia Pudding

Cha-cha-cha-chia! I haven't spoken too much of chia seeds lately. In fact, I think the last time I did speak of them was in a chia-marketing-rant as part of my very first post on the fresh beet (a fun re-read for me!). Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of the chia...

Beet BBQ Sauce

Beet BBQ Sauce

I've had a hankering for BBQ sauce lately. Maybe it's because I just recently moved back to the south. Or maybe it's just because there's something mouth watering about said sweet and tangy sauce. I'll find most anything to dip this stuff into. A friend of mine loves...

Broccoli Parmesan Fritters + Poached Egg

Blossom Topped Lemon-Poppy Seed Loaf

I had a blast with this months Recipe Redux theme: Edible Flowers. There are so many ways to use these lovely blossoms but I couldn't help but marvel at their beauty for a while before actually putting them to use. I found it strangely difficult to find edible flowers...
